Is Your BMW Loosing That Sport Ride Feel?

Is your BMW feeling “mushy”, “sloppy” or just plain unstable in a turn?  These are common complaints of worn or blown-out control arm bushings. Thanks to Austin’s roads that are often pot-hole ridden and littered with “speed bumps” and “road humps” (larger version of the traditional speed bump), the rubber control arm bushings in your BMW may have seen better days. Even if the symptoms seem minor at first, your car’s need for Austin BMW repair is inevitable. The control arm bushing is what mounts the wheel and tire to the chassis of the vehicle. When worn or broken, excessive movement will occur between the wheel/tire and the chassis of your BMW.

Some simple signs of damaged control arm bushings may range from a poor response felt through the steering wheel that turns into a “clunk” noise when navigating speed bumps or other uneven surfaces.

Even the heavier BMW M-style rubber bushings do not hold up to Austin’s roads and often last less than 20,000 miles. German Auto Center has a solution for you!  For the past 5-years, the BMW experts at German Auto Center have been installing a performance bushing imported from the UK that is made of precision machined polyurethane compound and stainless steel. These performance bushings will return that sporty ride that your BMW had when new and best of all, will last forever.

German Auto Center also has high-quality control arm bushings available for your Porsche, Audi, Mercedes Benz, Volkswagen and other performance European vehicles.
