A big Bowker thank you to everyone who took part in the Bowker MINI Halloween Drive Out this year.

On Sunday 27th October, more than 30 cars and 80 passengers in fancy-dress left Bowker MINI in Blackburn from 10am, before completing a spooky circuit of Pendle and the Ribble Valley.

The annual creepy car cavalcade wound its way to the final destination – Samlesbury Hall – for brews, bacon and prizes, before a Ghost Tour for hardy souls whose nerves can still take it.

Look out for more Bowker MINI events soon.

The Bowker MINI Centre on the docks in Preston has a new manager.

55-year old Peter Turner from Wigan is a familiar face at Bowker. He was originally an employee of Bowker Motor Group between 2002 and 2008. 

Most recently, he enjoyed successful sales management roles with motorcycle retailers Bowker Harley-Davidson from 2014 and then Bowker Motorrad – both also in Preston.

And, during a 27-year career in automotive retail, Peter also managed the Bowker MINI centre in Blackburn between 2007 and 2008.

Away from work, Pete is married to Vicky and has two sons, Adam and Liam. Peter is a keen rugby league player and fan. 

Peter said:

“It’s good to be back with MINI. The Centre in Preston has a close-knit group of loyal customers. We enjoy events and drive outs together. I’m looking forward to keeping up the good work with the kind of motoring retail experience our MINI customers deserve.”

Peter’s first events included the annual Halloween MINI Drive Out in October and a sneak peek at the new MINI electric in November.

The Bowker MINI showroom was opened in Preston in 2001 and extended in 2013. Three years later the centre became the first in Lancashire to complete refurbishment with a new open-plan layout; space for up to eight cars and complimentary coffee bar and refreshments. 

It’s great to get special treatment. Which is why we’re offering you and a guest the chance to feast your eyes on our first electric – way before it hits our showrooms in March 2020.

Get your first glimpse of the exciting new MINI Electric on 17 November. Our Preston MINI Centre will be hosting this exciting event for both Preston and Blackburn customers.

And, if you’re blown away, you’ be able to pre-order your very own MINI Electric there and then.

In fact, we’re so confident you’ll love it, we’ve made it the first car to come with a Feel Good Guarantee.

Ready to feel MINI Electric? Then register today by clicking HERE.

We look forward to seeing you!

Join us on Sunday 27th October 2019 at 10am for our ever anticipated annual Bowker MINI Halloween Drive Out! All MINI owners, family and friends are welcome.

FOR £35, KEEP YOUR MINI PERFORMING TO THE HIGHEST STANDARDS THIS 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.

To provide you with peace of mind motoring over the winter period, let our Technicians carry out a comprehensive end to end Winter Check of your MINI for £35 whilst you wait in the comfort of our Centre.

Your MINI will 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.

Sleet and snow simply bead, shed and roll off, and even ice is easy and quick to remove on those frosty mornings. The treatment will last for about six months and is applied by our trained Technicians.

For an additional £30, we can also treat the side windows and rear windscreen.

Our Winter Check will assess all aspects of your car including wheels and tyres, suspension and steering, under bonnet, exhaust and brake pads. 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

For more information, or to make a booking, call Bowker Blackburn on 01254 274333 or Bowker Preston on 01772 761234. Alternatively, complete the enquiry form and we’ll call you back.

Live Magazines Paul Agnew was intrigued by the new PHEV MINI Countryman. We sent him out in our demonstrator model for a MINI PHEV Adventure. Here is how he got on.

AGILITY ELECTRIFIED.

The MINI is a motoring icon – loved by the world over with a panache, presence and personality all of its own. A car with a place in history guaranteed.

But this little beauty is not living in the past – far from it.

Say hello to the MINI Countryman Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) now available at Bowker.
That’s right, the not-so-little PHEV MINI Countryman that is already proving a massive hit with the discerning drivers of 2019 who want a little bit of everything when they get behind the wheel; not least some fun.

Powered by both a combustion engine and an electric motor, it offers “the spirit of an explorer with technology at its heart”, according to those whose job it is to market and sell.
And after test driving the MINI Countryman Cooper S E ALL4 (yes, four-wheel-drive) from Bowker on Preston Docklands, it’s hard to disagree.

The PHEV MINI Countryman is a friend from the moment you meet up. The bond is immediate.
Perhaps it’s the famous badge or the instantly recognisable round central dial – now surrounded by an LED light ring that responds to how you are driving and houses a 6.5” colour screen and displays all in-car infotainment.
Or maybe it’s just the way it looks and the ease in which you settle in … everything just seems very right.
And so quiet. Once the keyless ignition has been activated you’d be hard pushed to hear any engine noise at all. Steering is light, vision excellent and road handling safe and sound.

As for performance, the big-hearted PHEV MINI Countryman packs quite a punch, racing from 0-60 mph is 6.8 secs. That’s down to a combined 221 brake horsepower on offer when the 1.5-litre petrol engine and rear-mounted electric motor work together. Sending power to just the rear wheels, the electric motor also gives it four-wheel-drive status. And then there’s the renowned 6-speed BMW gearbox

Who says sustainable motoring can’t be exciting?

The high-tech lithium-ion battery provides an all-electric ‘range’ (mpg in old money) of up to 26 miles, enough to cover the daily commute of most drivers. Kept at its optimum temperature by an advanced cooling system, the battery excels in both output and service life.

With the PHEV MINI Countryman there is the extra advantage of reducing the official CO2 emissions figure to just 49g/km, making the car a much sought after option for company-car drivers keen to reduce their tax.
Economy, of course, is one of the big attractions.

In terms of fuel ‘consumption’; suffice to say that the ‘range’ is a very impressive 134.5mpg (average) and a full battery charge at home (roughly taking about two hours) will set you back less than 5p!

Whilst driving you can switch between electric and petrol power as you feel fit (there’s even a speedier sports option too) and the transition is smooth and fully automated with no interruptions.

The PHEV MINI Countryman is blessed with an array of helpful and entertaining features including Sat Nav, real time traffic information and hundreds of radio stations (DAB) and music options. What the manufacturers call ‘Connected Services’ include: a concierge phone-line service, online search, weather information, Apple CarPlay®, rear parking distance control, bluetooth connectivity, chargeable battery during driving … the list goes on.

So, who fits the driver profile?
Anyone and everyone.

There are clear advantages for the business user and an obvious appeal for those seeking a nippy, smart-looking, easy-to-park and great-around-town car, while it offers a practical solution for families too with ample room inside.

Safety levels are excellent. It achieved the full five-star score in Euro NCAP crash tests and from an array of available extras you can choose a reversing camera, adaptive cruise control, traffic sign recognition and lane-keep assist.

Eight airbags come as standard, in addition to the compulsory anti-lock brakes and stability control. Also standard are autonomous emergency braking and a bonnet that pops up slightly in a pedestrian collision to help cushion the impact.

It is crystal clear that the choice of hybrid cars is likely to increase in the coming years. Indeed, BMW Group plans for 25% of all its models sold by 2025 to be electrified in some way.

The PHEV MINI Countryman has got in early and made a big impact. In the weeks before and after launch, dealers across the land struggled to meet demand. It’s easy to see why. 

To book your 48 hour test drive in the MINI Countryman Cooper S E ALL4, please contact the team at Bowker MINI.

There are a number of very good reasons reasons to choose MINI Service. One of them: the fact that Genuine MINI Parts are used at all times. Because nothing is more important than having “The Original”. Even when it comes to engine oil. 

MINI engines unleash a driving dynamic like no other manufacturer. Innovative high-performance engines require premium oils that keep up with rapid development. In cooperation with Shell, Original MINI Engine Oils were developed based on the unique Shell PurePlus Technology.

Engine oil quality depends largely on its main components: the base oils. They make up approximately 75-90% of an engine oil. Original MINI Engine Oils are based on the new patented Shell PurePlus Technology, which makes base oils from natural gas instead of crude oil. The result: crystal clear base oils that contain virtually none of the impurities found in crude oil. Shell PurePlus Technology marks a breakthrough in how engine oils are formulated to provide enhanced viscosity, reduced friction and lower volatility

So, what are the benefits?

SAFETY – Customers can count on BMW/MINI Service Centres to only use high-quality original products, including Genuine Parts and Original BMW and MINI Engine Oils. This guarantees the customer’s mobility.

SUSTAINABILITY – Original BMW and MINI Engine Oils reduce oil and fuel consumption – ensuring sustainable driving pleasure!

VALUE PRESERVATION – Using Original BMW and MINI Engine Oils keeps the engine clean and efficient. Along with BMW/MINI Service expertise, it helps maintain the vehicle’s value.

The BMW Original Engine Oil 1 Ltr top-up kit is priced at £20.40 and is available from the Service or Parts departments.

For more information on BMW Original Engine Oil,  please speak to a member of the team by contacting Bowker Preston on 01772 761234 or Bowker Blackburn on 01254 274333.
