The Importance of Alignments for European Vehicles

The Importance of Alignments for European Vehicles

Drivers of sophisticated, high-end European vehicles in the Farmington, MI, area know that regular maintenance is essential to keep their Mercedes, Audi, BMW, or any other European car running as it should. European car alignments, however, are a service that often gets looked over. Cars often don’t go out of alignment immediately, but rather slowly, over a period of time. This slow process makes it hard for the driver to pick up on a misaligned suspension. For this reason, it’s a good idea to add an alignment to your European vehicle’s yearly maintenance. Advanced Auto Sports is an expert in European car alignments, and we can’t emphasize enough how vital they are to your Euro car’s well being - especially if you live in the pothole-riddled Farmington or Farmington Hills area! Read on to find out more about why regular alignments are essential for your European car!   Preventive Benefits If your car’s alignment is off, the rest of the suspe ... read more

Get Your Car Winter-Ready with These 3 Tips

How do you enjoy fall in Farmington, MI? We love taking in nature, roasting marshmallows, decorating pumpkins, and celebrating Halloween, of course! There is one other essential thing to do in the fall that we couldn’t neglect to mention: caring for your car! We are passionate about car care, so that’s why we love this time of year. October is, in fact, National Car Care Month! Right now is the perfect time to get in any work that needs to be done on our vehicles before winter snows blow in. Here are a few things to make sure you have covered:   Caring For Your Tires   Your tires will be in direct contact with wet and snowy roads, so you want to make sure you aren’t driving on dangerously subpar tires! Over time, the tread on our tires begins to wear down, and we end up with balding tires that do little to grip the road. If you notice that your tires are getting worn, it’s probably time to replace them.    Additionally, since we live in ... read more

October = Brakes for Breasts

October = Brakes for Breasts

At Advanced Auto Sports, we’re very interested in our community. We love to give back, and one way of doing that is through the Brakes for Breasts program. Brakes for Breasts is an organization that allows independent auto repair shops all across the United States to raise money for breast cancer research. 100% of the money raised goes to support research for the Cleveland Clinic Breast Cancer Vaccine Fund! Although we’re not participating this year, we’ll be doing this next year! For the entire month of October, brake pads are free at participating auto repair shops. All you pay is for labor and other parts. Each auto repair shop donates 10% of the labor to Brakes for Breasts, which adds up to quite a lot of money. In 2017, the 114 auto repair shops involved raised nearly $115,000. There are other reasons to have your brakes inspected and replaced in October. We’re thinking of the little goblins and fairies that are running around looking for candy! Any time ... read more

GOT A EUROPEAN VEHICLE? DON'T SKIP ITS OIL CHANGE! HERE'S WHY:

Oil changes are essential to the longevity of any car, and avoiding them can put your engine in jeopardy. If you want your BMW, Audi, Volkswagen, Mercedes, or any other European vehicle to be performing at its very best, you have to maintain the engine with oil changes. Not sure what that might look like for you? Allow us to explain further! Lubricating the Engine Have a BMW, Mercedes, or another European vehicle in Farmington Hills and wondering why it needs an oil change? Well, one of oil’s main tasks in your engine is to make sure that all of the moving parts are completely lubricated. If there is a shortage of oil in your engine, it is likely that metal pieces will rub and create friction. This can have catastrophic results, including extreme damage to the engine or even engine failure.  Cleaning Out Contaminants  Have you ever noticed how different oil looks coming out of your engine as compared to what it looked like going in ... read more
