The Importance of Bosch Certification

,

BoschServiceLogoWe at Beckley Imports are proud of all of the certifications, awards and knowledge we have earned over the past 34 years.  One of the most prestigious is our continued  Bosch certification.  Why is it so important to have the Bosch stamp of approval?

  •  Bosch certified dealers must first undergo a rigorous certification process.  There are many factors taken into consideration, including not only technical skill, but also customer service, facility design and appearance.
  • To be sure the highest standards are met, an independent company performs inspections, both pre-arranged audits and surprise visits.
  • Information gathered from these inspections is then used for ongoing training, to make sure your import vehicle is receiving THE most up-to-date service.
  • Only a certified Bosch dealer can provide the highest-quality replacement parts from Bosch, the leader in innovation and quality in North America for 100 years.

Don’t trust your prized European Import to just any repair shop.  Call Beckley Imports to receive the best certified Bosch auto parts and service.

 

Replacing The Headlights In Your European Import

Slide6-des-moines-mini-cooperFor as long as there have been cars on the roads, they have needed headlights.  Headlights are necessary for safety – that of everyone on the road as well as the driver, himself.  They are essential for driving at night, in rainstorms, snowstorms and fog, and make your European import visible to drivers and pedestrians alike.

Did you know that there is more wear and tear to your headlights besides just the bulb burning out?  Over time, your headlights can suffer from a grime buildup – even on your European import! This buildup comes from things we encounter every day; bugs, tar, road dust and, of course, Iowa’s winter road treatments.

We at Beckley Imports know that your European auto is more than just a car, it’s an investment and a source of pride.  So why take the chance with poor visibility and risk damaging your “baby?”  Here are some tips to get the most safety out of your headlights:

  • When you stop at the gas station, give your headlights a quick scrub when you wash your windows.  Removing the dirt and dead bugs can make a big difference.
  • Always replace your headlights and bulbs in pairs, instead of one at a time to ensure that they illuminate evenly.
  • You don’t have to wait for your headlights to burn out to replace them.  Almost all headlights will dim over time, even if they don’t burn out completely.  Replacing them regularly will increase your road safety.
  • Grab a friend and make sure all of your lights are in good working order on a regular basis.  Check your headlights, brake lights and turn signals to keep yourself visible.
  • If your European import still has yellowish halogen bulbs, it’s a good idea to upgrade to the whiter high performance bulbs that are more visible at night and are closer to the color of natural daylight.

Not all headlights are created equal, and your European import won’t accept just any old headlight.  Here at Beckley’s, our experienced and knowledgeable technicians will find and correctly install the right headlight for your vehicle.
