It is always important to ensure that wear and tear items are maintained and that your vehicle stays in top condition. To help you ensure that key areas of your vehicle are performing as they should be, our Trained Technicians are on hand to perform a complimentary Health Check.

Only we can access your car's DNA.
Our complimentary Vehicle Health Check will provide you with results of a visual inspection of your vehicle, its history and mileage by BMW trained technicians. Just some of the items included in your check on your vehicle are:

  • Check BMW Warranty and BMW Service Inclusive cover
  • Check for recalls and campaigns outstanding 
  • Check fluid level in brake and clutch hydraulic system
  • Check all lights
  • Check steering oil and condition
  • Check tyre pressure and thread depth
  • Check brake fluid according to service indicator
  • Check engine oil level
  • Check drive belt condition
  • Check exhaust condition
  • Check coolant level

At the end of this check you will be presented with a report classifying each item as being:

Tyres image


As part of our VHC our BMW Technicians will check your tyre thread depth and let you know if your tyres need to be changed urgently, in the coming months, or are do not require attention at this time. 

If you have any concerns about your tyres, please contact Joe Duffy BMW and we can check your tyres for you. 

The minimum permitted tyre tread depth is 1.6 mm. For safety reasons it is recommended that each tyre should have at least 3.0 mm tread depth. Most new tyres have 8.0 mm.

Stopping Distances

The thread depth on your tyres plays a major role in the stopping distances of your vehicle particularly in wet conditions. Tyres with higher thread depths dramatically reduce the stopping distance of your car allowing you to bring your vehicle to a stop in a much shorter distance in the case of an emergency

Brake Pads image

Brake Pads

Your brake pads press against your brake discs and the resulting friction is what slows your vehicle down and brings it to a stop. Over time the brake pads wear away reducing their effectiveness at slowing and stopping your vehicle. During the Vehicle Health Check, our technicians will measure the thickness that remains in your brake pads and advise you if you need to change them.

Brake Discs image

Brake Discs

Like the Brake Pads, Brake Discs also wear down over time and can even become warped which reduces their effectiveness in slowing down and stopping your vehicle. Our technicians will compare the % of wear of your brake discs against the manufacturer recommended thickness and will report this level of wear to you and advice whether you need to change the discs or not.
