Do You Own A “Beemer” In Chicagoland And Is It An Automobile Or A Motor Bike?

by | Aug 2, 2016 | Automobiles

Should you answer in the affirmative, the next question might be – “where do you take it when something goes wrong with it or it is time for a preventative maintenance service session?”. To answer this, it does depend whether you have 2 wheels or 4 on your “Beemer”.

Brief History

The German firm of Bayerische Motoren Werke AG (Bavarian Motor Works) was founded in 1916 for the production of motor cycles (having been forbidden to continue with the manufacture of aircraft engines under the terms of the Versailles Armistice Treaty that ended the First World War). However, by 1928, they were also producing 4 wheeled automobiles. Their first model was called the Dixi and was a somewhat modest vehicle made under license from the English Austin Motor Company of Birmingham. The Dixi was based on the Austin 7.

Another war intervened after which Bayerische Motoren Werke were struggling – especially with regard to automobiles. By 1958 the situation had reached near bankruptcy which was only avoided by producing (under license) the tiny 3 wheeled, motor bike engine powered, Isetta. This strategy worked and enabled them through mergers and acquisitions to move on and become a leader in the production of bestselling, luxury automobiles with a reputation for technical excellence and reliability.

Even The Best Have To Be Maintained

Avoiding collisions, preventative maintenance and not pushing an automobile beyond its limits are the keys to trouble free motoring over a lengthy period. Even the best of drivers can be caught out by the first and need to seek BMW repair in Chicago – that driver should already know where to go since the vehicle should have been routinely serviced by an auto shop specifically set up with all the tooling, diagnostic and other equipments needed for correctly repairing and maintaining Beemers.

If your Beemer is an automobile, there is one company that can be relied on to provide expertly qualified BMW repair in Chicago and that company is Chicago Motors Auto Service. Visit them online at
