As a valued customer of BM Tech, welcome to our electronic vehicle information newsletter!
We are trying to reduce our carbon footprint by sending the BMW and MINI news, as well as service reminders, via email.

We have expanded our Canterbury workshop so parking and workflow is much improved.  And take a look at the new BMW 3 Series, very tempting to upgrade!
Canterbury Expansion BM Tech Canterbury Expansion

BM Tech Canterbury has expanded into the workshop next door. 
 
Eight years ago, when we moved to our current location on Canterbury Road, the size of the new workshop was a huge contrast from the old Box Hill site; Canterbury was so big! However, it’s amazing how quickly we out grew it.  Our customer base is growing rapidly and we are beginning to experience the same issues that were evident in our old workshop.  We desperately needed more room to move and additional areas for work bays.  Fortunately, the property next door became available just in time so we made the decision to expand. 
 
We now have four more working bays and a wonderful new car park at the front which will make drop-offs and pick-ups even easier than before. Our capacity to service and repair cars and provide better, more efficient customer service has improved noticeably.

Car Sales Announcement

BM Tech Car Sales has closed its doors. After 4 years of trading we decided that selling cars was not as important as our Service Department.  The Service Department was growing faster than we expected and we needed the extra room.   We found the car sales industry to be very competitive & difficult to find good cars to sell, particularly ones that met our high standards.  With the service workshop rapidly growing, it was only logical to close the used car sales area and expand the repair and service side of the business.

Competition Prizewinners Competition Prizewinners

The winner of the "Win a Samsung TV" competition was Pamela Green from Melbourne. Congratulations to Pamela for winning such a great prize.  A big thank you to all who entered the competition.  It was very successful with nearly 1000 people entering.  Looks like we may do another one this year!  We'll keep you posted.
 
The winner of the BM Tech "Refer a Friend" competition for 2011 was Mr Arthur Apostoleros from Footscray.  Arthur referred a couple of new customers and for that he won a dinner for 4 people at the superb Grossi Florentino Restaurant valued at $400.00
 
Refer-A-Friend Winner A very big thank you to everyone who referred new clients, it was one of the biggest years for referrals we've ever had.  Remember, this is an ongoing competition where a new winner is drawn every December, so good luck for this year.


New BMW 3 Series Has Arrived New BMW 3 Series Has Arrived

The all new BMW 3 Series or F30 as we call it has arrived.  There will be three versions available in Australia; the economical and surprisingly powerful diesel engined 320d, the new 328i will have an engine that is actually a four cylinder turbo which will combine the best performance with terrific economy, and then there’s the 335i with the incredible turbocharged six cylinder engine.  These cars have been designed with near-perfect 50:50 weight distribution for amazing balance, handling and agility.  I think these new F30s are going to sell very well.
