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!

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

The kids look fabulous in their costumes and it’s fun to see the whole community around Farmington Hills decorate their homes, pass out sweet treats, and have a grand time getting spooky together. And though the students at North Farmington High School took their school identification photos before Halloween, we can’t help but wonder if everyone is going to dress up as their same characters. One thing we advocate in October is preventive maintenance for your vehicles, especially brake service and repair. Let&rsq ... read more
