The winter has a lot of offer, including challenges to your driving abilities and your BMW. After all, the change in seasons means a change in driving conditions on the road: so don't wait for the first flicker of frost, get yourself and your BMW Equipped for winter with the great accessories and initiatives available from BMW this year.
BMW Winter Wheels and Tyres
When outside temperatures drop below 7⁰C summer tyres no longer provide optimum grip and performance since the blending of their ruber/silica compound hardens at lower temperatures. BMW Winter Tyres are made from a different combination of this compound and retain their flexibility and performance during the colder weather. BMW Winter Tyres provide higher levels of safety and considerably shorter stopping distances.
Do you ever feel uncomfortable driving in snow and ice? Have you ever driven into standing water suddenly and felt your car was out of control? Do you fully understand what Dynamic Stability Control is for? The BMW Winter Driver Training Programme, run by Rally School Ireland, will help you to safeguard yourself and your family, protect your car and keep down insurance premiums. Learn from highly qualified instructors, practice on a specialist low-friction surface and gain the experience necessary to drive safely in winter conditions.

This kit contains screenwash with anti-freeze, window de-icer, a high visibility vest and an ice/snow scraper. All this comes in a practical storage bag for just €39.99, available from your local BMW dealer.
