    First time I used them - MOT. Collection was on time, the car was taken to a reputable local garage, and passed the test without any extra work. They even did a basic valeting - all for £19.

What's an MOT?

The MOT test is how the government checks your vehicle meets national safety and environmental standards. Your car is first tested three years post-registration, then annually, and driving a vehicle without a valid MOT could mean a fine of up to £1,000.

The most common reasons for failing your MOT including lighting and signalling, suspension, brakes and tyres. And nearly a quarter of diesel vehicles reportedly fail their MOTs due to the stricter guidelines on diesel emissions.

MOT time can feel nerve-racking, especially if you rely on your vehicle heavily for work or family reasons. But it doesn’t have to be. At Fixter, we make the process hassle-free with our straightforward, no-nonsense UK-wide service.

How often an MOT needs to be done?

Your car is first tested three years post-registration, then annually, and be aware that driving a vehicle without a valid MOT could mean a fine of up to £1,000.

How an MOT works?

Here’s what our friendly, top-quality service offers:

  • Free collection and delivery of your motor to and from the garage at times to suit you, meaning you won’t need to deal with the garage yourself, or hang around while the MOT is being done.

  • Our upfront, transparent pricing beats most of the competition and local garages hands down, and there are no hidden costs – prices are always well below the UK national maximum for an MOT of nearly £55.

  • A year-long warranty on all parts and labour.

  • Parts are manufacturer-equivalent only.

BMW

BMW AG is a German automobile and motorcycle manufacturer that was established over 100 years ago in March 1916. They also own Mini and Rolls Royce, after taking over the two British marques in 2000 and 1998 respectively.

How popular is BMW in the United Kingdom?

BMW makes luxury vehicles and is possibly most famous for its sports saloon models. In 2018, BMW had 1.9m vehicles on the roads in the UK, a number that has been steadily increasing each year for the past decade.

As one of the ‘big 3’ German marques, along with Audi and Mercedes, BMW carries a strong reputation for making high-quality stylish vehicles, and have captured a large section of the UK market.

Luxury family and business models for every driver

Probably most popular for the 3 Series and 5 Series saloon models, BMW has got every possible angle covered for the more discerning drivers.

The full range includes everything from the 1 Series city car to the full-size saloons and sports coupes of the 7 and 8 Series models.

To provide everything you’d ever need for family motoring there’s a seven-seat MPV, their range of X model SUVs, and since 2014, the introduction of their plug-in electric i models. Top it all off with their M model high-performance supercars, the Z4 convertible and the i8 Roadster—and you’ve got the full package.

BMW: High performance on and off the track

BMW has a successful history in a range of motorsports.

They have been significant performers in touring car racing and rally driving, enjoyed success in Formula One with the BMW Sauber team, and BMW cars have been regular competitors and winners at Le Mans since the race’s early years.

BMW’s reliability and reputation

BMW ranked 16th place out of 30 car brands in the What Car? Reliability Survey in 2018. BMW hasn’t always had the best reputation for reliability but to rank alongside marques such as Honda, Volkswagen and Fiat they’re holding their own alongside plenty of the other big names.

Recent BMW recalls and reliability issues

Various recalls have been made on BMW models throughout their motoring history. The following are a list of the most recent in the UK and Europe.
