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

FRONT WINDSCREEN TREATMENT.

For an additional £24.99, 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.

The dual-component ice scraper allows thorough removal of both snow and ice. The sturdy ridged blade for breaking ice at the front of the ice scraper removes even the most obstinate ice from the windscreen.

One of Bowker Preston BMW’s most popular staff members has retired a matter of months before his 20-year milestone with the company.

Popular with staff and customers alike, Eoghan Gilbert was one of the most familiar faces at the aftersales reception at Bowker BMW in Preston. Bringing a perfect blend of humour and efficiency to the aftersales role, Eoghan was also renowned for organising staff charity challenges, including a recent 24-mile 5200-feet climb in around 12 hours and raising over £4,000 for St Catherine’s Hospice. 

Eoghan joined Bowker BMW in Preston in March 2004 as a Service Advisor before swiftly making his mark as a Senior Service Advisor, becoming one of the most recognisable members of the team for 19 years and 4 months. Prior to joining Bowker BMW, the former Darwen Vale High School student served as a service Advisor at Jacksons Mercedes Jersey and a Trade Advisor at Baxi Clean Air. 

Now, Eoghan plans to take a breather from the automotive retail industry and make more time for wife Karen, to travel and to enjoy long walks with his pet dogs. Best wishes to Eoghan on his well-deserved retirement and the very best in all his future endeavours.

Lancashire-based Bowker BMW received a visit from Graham Biggs, the BMW UK communications director, for an official staff presentation of the first-ever BMW UK Sustainability Award. 

The award, which recognises Bowker BMW’s unwavering commitment to sustainability, was initially announced at a ceremony in Liverpool as part of the national BMW UK Retailer Awards in January. 

The award also reflects Bowker BMW’s efforts to reduce its carbon footprint and the family-owned business’s substantial financial investment of nearly £2 million in sustainability initiatives during 2022.

Statistics reflect the tangible impact of Bowker BMW’s commitment. The company has successfully reduced paper transactions and communications by 95%, demonstrating its commitment to minimising waste. Additionally, Bowker has appointed an Energy Champion to explore innovative ways of further reducing their environmental impact.

Bowker BMW’s sustainability journey began in 2007 with the launch of the “Bowker SOS” (Switch Off Something) initiative – an initiative inspired by the energy crisis of 1973, aimed to reduce energy consumption. The Group has since implemented various recycling programs and environmentally friendly practices. Only last month, Bowker BMW and MINI centres in Blackburn and Preston have taken another step towards sustainable energy use by installing 1600 new solar panels across their dealership roofs.

Chris Eccles, Director of Bowker BMW, said: “Thank you to BMW UK for taking the time to visit the centre to present this prestigious award. We are proud that BMW has acknowledged our commitment to sustainability nationally. At Bowker, we take our responsibility to minimise our impact on the environment seriously. And we want to lead by example.”

Bowker BMW’s dedication to sustainability extends beyond environmental initiatives. The company prioritises social value and continuously strives to improve working conditions for employees. They invest in new showers, changing facilities, and sourcing uniforms from sustainable suppliers.

Furthermore, Bowker has established long-standing partnerships with local colleges, offering scholarship and apprenticeship programs for over 15 years. This commitment ensures the growth and development of the industry by providing valuable opportunities for apprentices and students interested in the motor trade.

The visit of the BMW UK communications director to Bowker BMW emphasises the significance of the Group’s achievements and collaboration. It showcases the positive impact that businesses can have on the environment and their local communities, inspiring others to prioritise sustainability.

Explore the world with all the advantages the BMW X Series has to offer. With their uncluttered seating position, optimal traction and fuel-efficient engines, you will find that BMW’s range of SUVs, each carrying that special X model gene, are ready to handle all of life’s moments.

Our Bowker BMW showrooms in Preston and Blackburn will trial Sunday closure from 14th May. 

Whilst customers cannot physically visit our BMW retail centres on Sundays, the online showroom will still be available to view the wide range of New and Approved Used available stock and reserve vehicles online.

We are committed to maintaining our award-winning retail service over one day less. Our online retail experience via the Bowker website will remain available 24 hours a day and seven days a week as usual.

We’ve seen significant changes in customer habits since the Covid lockdown. New working patterns also mean customers have more flexibility when they visit, and higher footfall during the week bears this out. 

The decision to open six days a week will provide employees with extra leisure time with families and friends. The significant decision highlights the importance of work-life balance for retail workers and represents another step towards creating a healthier, more sustainable workplace culture.

Updated Bowker BMW opening times in Blackburn and Preston are:

  • Monday – Friday: 8:30 AM – 6:00 PM

We are delighted to have officially switched on 1600 new solar panels across our dealership roofs in Blackburn and Preston. 

The new panels will allow our Centres to generate a quarter of our electricity from solar energy and reduce their carbon footprint by 130 tonnes!

The official solar panel switch-on was in recognition of Earth Day on Saturday, 22 April 2023. 

Our Director, Jonathan Rogan, said: “It was perfect timing that Earth Day followed so soon after installing the new panels. We officially celebrated the switch on and joined other businesses across the globe to raise awareness of climate issues.

“Our new investment will significantly impact reducing our carbon footprint. As a company, we’re committed to leading the way in environmentally-friendly business practices. And we hope to inspire our staff, customers and others in the community about important environmental issues.”

Bowker has invested in sustainable energy before. In 2012, our Blackburn dealership installed 210 solar panels, making it the first car dealership in Lancashire to adopt solar energy. Since then, these panels have saved the company money and reduced carbon emissions by 500 tonnes.

Our ongoing commitment to sustainability was also recognised by BMW UK after recently receiving the first-ever National BMW UK Retailer Award for Sustainability. Read more here.

Earth Day is an annual event promoting environmental protection and raising awareness about our planet’s threats. This day is marked by various activities such as rallies, community clean-ups, and educational programs to encourage people to take action to protect the environment.
