IS YOUR CAR WINTER READY? Give your BMW the attention it deserves.

With snow in the forecast this week. Are you winter ready?

Snowfall forecasts in IRELAND can be a tricky thing, as you are never sure if it’s actually going to snow or, when it does, how long it’s going to hang around. Generally snowfall in Ireland only lasts for a day or two and February is one of the most common months to experience it. So, it’s worth being prepared and ready to go – lock, stock and emergency shovel.

In the event of snow, an emergency kit in your car can be extremely useful. It is a selection of tools that can help in various situations, from needing to remove snow from under your tyres to contacting roadside assistance. Click here to find more items for your winter emergency kit.
