A Preston-based BMW service engineer has become the only technician in England to retain one of the toughest technical accreditations in the motor trade seven times in succession.

Harold Bowden has officially passed his master technician accreditation for the seventh time. He is currently one of only 66 BMW master technicians in England, but the only one to hold the accreditation for so long. 

BMW requires all master technicians to re-qualify for the accreditation every five years. Harold Bowden’s success – after working with Bowker for over 45 years – means that, by the time Harold’s next accreditation is due, he will have been a Master Technician for over 35 years.

Harold said: “I love the BMW technology. So, when I immerse myself in the details – it doesn’t feel quite so much like hard work in the way others might think. Add to that, I have the support of a great employer in Bowker Motor Group. They always back me. So, those two things combined make a big difference when I challenge myself to achieve the Master Technician accreditation.

“Yes. It’s quite a high level of knowledge – but it needs to be. I do a lot of training in my own time – at weekends and evenings. And fortunately, I’m genuinely interested in BMW cars so it makes it a little easier for me. Technology is always changing. There are new hybrids and the all-electric models coming through; so there are always new engine developments or new gadgets to widen my mechanical knowledge.”

In the tests, Harold successfully completed the industry-recognised examinations featuring a range of online, practical, diagnostic and theoretical examinations. The test now also includes a coaching exercise and customer handling situations.

Harold has also achieved the title of AAE (Advanced Automotive Engineer) which is a special engineering grade awarded by the IMI. And in 2005 Harold was also one of the first technicians to receive IMI ATA Master Technician.

In 2015, BMW UK recognised Harold’s achievements by presenting him with a Lifetime Achievement Award from BMW UK. He was the first technician in England to achieve the accolade. 

Stewart Rose, Bowker Motor Group Group Services Manager, said: “Harold is an inspiration to us all. I, myself, have worked for Bowker Motor Group for over 36 years. So, I know just how hard Harold has worked to stay at the top of hsi game for so long. 

“The other technicians know he is always available to help with any challenges they face. It is a massive benefit to have someone so knowledgeable as part of our team. Congratulations Harold. And we look forward to celebrating your seven accreditation in 5 more years!”

Last year, 27-year-old Bowker Motor Group’s Callan McGuigan from Fulwood Preston was awarded BMW Senior Technician status after a gruelling day-long exam at the BMW training centre at Wokefield Park, Reading.

GET SET FOR WINTER.

Breakdowns are more common and can be more dangerous over the winter months, so be prepared for heavy rain, cold spells and challenging road conditions.

Now is the perfect time to book in your BMW for a Winter Health Check to make sure it’s ready for everything the colder months have in store.

Our trained technicians will check the key components are working optimally and top up key fluids including screen wash, engine oil, AdBlue* and antifreeze ‐ all for just £39.99†.

All aspects of your car including wheels and tyres, suspension and steering, under bonnet, exhaust and brake pads will be checked over. Our Technicians will prepare a health report and, using the latest technology, share a personalised talk-through video whilst your vehicle is on a ramp in the Workshop.

We’ll check:

  • All lights
  • Heat blower
  • Horn
  • Battery
  • Fluid levels, including coolant, screenwash, steering and engine oil
  • Steering mobility
  • Brake pads and discs
  • Wiper blades
  • Tyre pressure and treads
  • Drivebelt
  • Exhaust
BMW Duxback

FRONT WINDSCREEN TREATMENT.

For an additional £19.99, your BMW can also receive a front windscreen treatment which creates a ‘hydrophobic’ effect on glass. This dramatically improves visibility in the rain and when travelling at speeds of 40mph and above, the need for wipers to operate will be significantly reduced due to the way the water beads off the treated glass.

ACCESSORIES TO GET YOU WINTER READY.

BMW LAUNCHES WORLD-FIRST eDRIVE ZONES IN THE UK.

Further enhancing support for plug-in hybrid owners, BMW is today launching BMW Points in the UK – a programme designed to reward customers for each electric mile driven.

Offered to BMW 330e, BMW 530e, BMW 545e, BMW 745e, BMW X3 30e (produced from August 2021) and BMW X5 45e drivers with BMW Operating System 7.0, the programme offers free charging in exchange for driving electric miles. Drivers can earn 2 points for each mile driven electrically, and 4 points for each mile driven electrically in a designated eDrive zone.

BMW Points users are also awarded 20 bonus points every time their vehicle is charged for a minimum of fifteen minutes. Plus, a monthly reward of 500 points for each user who charges their vehicle twenty times a month for a minimum of fifteen minutes each time. 

Once drivers have collected 3,200 points, they will be rewarded with £10 charging credit to be used across the BMW Charging network. At 7,500 points, customers will receive £25 and at 14,500 points a £50 free charging credit.

Points are earned for each mile driven once the vehicle is registered on the BMW Points scheme via the My BMW App and, once registered, miles are automatically logged by the vehicle. Additionally, any miles driven throughout Europe are also recorded, with BMW Points already available to customers in Germany, Belgium and The Netherlands.

BMW became the first car manufacturer in 2020 to launch geo-fencing technology in designated areas across London and Birmingham, resulting in BMW plug-in hybrid models switching to electric driving mode once the vehicle has entered these eDrive zones. Now in addition to London and Birmingham, a further six eDrive Zones have been launched across the UK in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Belfast, Liverpool, Bath and Manchester.

BMW has also launched eDrive Zones in the Republic of Ireland, with Dublin and Limerick added as designated cities.

More information on the first BMW eDrive Zones which launched in the UK in 2020 can be found here.

The BMW eDrive Zones service, available as standard on BMW plug-in hybrid models running the latest BMW Operating System 7.0, works using geo-fencing technology via GPS within the vehicle’s navigation system. The eDrive Zones in London and Birmingham are highlighted graphically on the vehicle’s Central Control Display navigation screen, so drivers can see their location.

This feature, which is enabled in customer vehicles as of today, covers the same geographic area as the TFL Congestion Charge/ULEZ zone in London, while in Birmingham the service covers the city’s planned Clean Air Zone, which is due to be implemented in 2021. BMW plans to introduce this technology in additional cities across the UK and Ireland in the future.

The BMW eDrive Zones service is now available as standard on BMW 330e, BMW 530e, BMW 745e and BMW X5 xDrive45e, with additional compatible models launching in the future. BMW eDrive Zones have also been made available via a free over-the-air software update for compatible BMW plug-in hybrid vehicles, meaning existing customers can also benefit from this technology.

The significant contribution plug-in hybrid vehicles can make to reducing tailpipe emissions in cities was demonstrated in an early trial of this technology, carried out in the Netherlands in 2018. Results of this research project showed 90 per cent of all routes within the trial zone in Rotterdam were driven in electric-only mode.

BMW Group production locations in the UK are also contributing towards the company’s global electromobility goals. BMW Group’s Hams Hall engine manufacturing plant, near Birmingham, assembles three-cylinder and four-cylinder petrol engines that are at the heart of a number of BMW plug-in hybrid vehicles. By the end of 2020, it is expected that one in five engines built by the company in Birmingham will be destined for a plug-in hybrid vehicle, rising to around 25 per cent of engines built next year.

Competition Now Closed

Bowker BMW centres in Blackburn and Preston are running a new competition with the first prize donated by Modern Mobility in Clitheroe and Blackburn. 

The first prize scooter is a Pride Go-Go ES8 Boot Scooter. The lightweight Go-Go ES8 can be easily dismantled and fits into the smallest of cars. Designed for exceptional durability, the Go-Go ES8 also provides great reliability.

Bowker BMW motability specialist, Andrew Holden, said: “I’ve spoken to hundreds of customers who struggle with their mobility. I’ve seen how the right blend of transport solutions can transform the lives of people who struggle to get around.

“This competition couldn’t be simpler. It’s for anyone in Lancashire who knows a friend or family member who would benefit most from a free mobility scooter. They can quickly nominate someone by sharing a couple of sentences that describe the reason they should win and the kind of impact that winning a free scooter will have on their lives.”

Modern Mobility sales manager, Russell Curry, said: “Like Bowker, we always try to offer a little bit extra for our customers when we can. By joining forces in this competition with Bowker we can do just that. This is a great way for two local businesses to work together. The scooter is a special prize for someone who is not as mobile as they would like to be.

“Andrew and I had a coffee and decided we should work together. When you share the same values, it really is that easy for businesses to collaborate! This competition is proof! Good luck to everyone who is nominated!”

In 2019, Bowker BMW’s Andrew Holden was crowned best Motability specialist in the country. The award recognised Andrew as the best from over 18,000 motability specialists in the country and acknowledges consistently high standards of service and support to customers of the Motability Car Scheme throughout 2018.
