At Legendary we have technicians trained in BMW repair and maintenance, our passion for excellence aligns with the brand well.
We take great pride in the cleanliness of our facility, second to none. It is a clear reflection of the work that we do.
Don't trust your BMW to just any shop, we know how it is when you have been looking for “THAT” shop, just look at our many Google reviews and you can see that we care about delivering professional service.
With technology moving forward at its current pace, not every independent facility that services BMW has the tools, training, and technology to deliver what you want.
The one thing you might not love about your BMW is that it is a challenge for most automotive repair shops to perform any work, or even routine maintenance, on your car. Luckily, this is not the case at Legendary Automotive and Truck Service.
It is the truth - our owner was a proud employee for the BMW PTC American Lemans Racing Team, and he brings his expertise on these vehicles and delivers this knowledge to his ASE Certified Master Technicians. The result is that our technicians have experience working with BMW’s and other German cars, and they provide the best German car repair service in Southwest Florida at a lower cost than most BMW dealers.
A lot of people wonder why they need to bring a BMW to a specialty shop and cannot just go to any local mechanic.
Technically, you can probably take your BMW to almost any repair shop to get some of the basic services done, but there are some solid reasons to take your luxury vehicle to a specialty repair shop:
Luckily, at Legendary Automotive and Truck Service, we check all the boxes. All of our technicians are ASE Certified Master level or above, our service writers have the experience to get the right parts you need fast, and our team has a combined total of over 70 years of experience with German vehicles. You can trust Legendary to offer you the best service at a reasonable price!
If you have a vehicle that you commonly refer to as simply “the 5 series” or “the 8 series”, or if you are the proud owner of an x7 or an x5, then you are an owner of an ever-popular BMW automobile. You probably love your BMW, also known as a “bimmer” or a “beemer” (more on that later) for its luxury, style, and advanced features.
A lot of people know that BMW cars are incredibly popular, but many of them are not aware of the beginnings of this brand in the United States, nor are they familiar with the many reasons that these cars are as popular as they are.
The world-famous BMW brought its first dealership to the United States as a nearly unknown brand in 1975, having already enjoyed almost 60 years of technology-based success in Germany. The cars, however, did not really catch on in the U.S. until a few years later in 1982 with the E30.
The commercial success of the E30 is what started people to notice BMW for what it was - a producer of sporty luxury sedans with a large number of advanced technological and safety options. Once this happened, the rest was history, and BMW kept rising in popularity to become the most popular luxury car in the United States.
Think about your commute - if you are like the majority of Americans, you spend somewhere between one and three hours a day, five days a week, your car. This means that you have to spend, at best, 5 hours a week in your car, and at worst 15 hours or more.
That being said, if you are going to be a commuter, then you will want to have a vehicle that offers substantial comfort and performance - you don’t want to be in a small, cramped, uncomfortable car for what hours per week! BMW is known for comfort and performance, and to top this off they are considered to be sleek, stylish, and high-quality cars that are perfect for those that are willing to spend on their car.
Another reason that BMW is popular is that they used some of the best technology available in their vehicles. Automatic parking (and intelligent parking location solutions), excellent mileage on most models, advanced safety features, Alexa connectivity for voice activation, all-wheel drive systems, and advanced aerodynamic designs make up just a small fraction of the technology that BMW puts into its cars!
Many of us have heard the term “Beemer” when someone is referring to a BMW.
This might be correct, but it probably technically isn’t, and many of the biggest fans of BMW will let you know quickly if you are wrong.
Technically, “Beemer” only refers to the BMW brand motorcycles, while “Bimmer” is the technically correct term for the BMW car models. So, those who call their BMW 328i a “Beemer” would be considered incorrect by those who are the biggest fans of BMW.
Does it matter? No, probably not… if you say you have a “Beemer” people are going to know that you are a BMW owner, and if you say “Bimmer” people will probably assume that you meant “Beemer” and just let the conversation move along.
Sadly, there are specific concerns that BMW owners will likely experience. The most common concern that is experienced is related to the BMW electrical system. German engineering in cars relies very heavily on electrical systems, so when you have dozens of specialty and safety features that rely on the electrical system, you will start to experience problems at some point. This focus on electrical systems is also why you want a technician who specializes in BMW’s.
Like many luxury vehicles, the problems can spiral quickly - it does see that when there is a problem with your BMW, there is going to be another problem right behind it. Aside from electrical repairs, Bimmers often have to concern themselves with leaks, general wear and tear repairs being expensive, and coolant system issues.
Once all of the problems have been solved, you can probably get a large number of miles out of your car, but the cost of these repairs can definitely break the bank!
