BMW Begins Rollout Of Classic Restoration Service In Australia

BMW has launched its classic service and restoration programme in Australia by appointing Worthington BMW as a BMW Classic centre.

The New South Wales central coast business joins 151 dealerships around the world as a member of the programme, which began when BMW expanded its specialist operation that restored the company’s own classic vehicles to cars belonging to customers. Unable to satisfy demand, the company then launched the ‘Customer Workshop’ project, seeking partners around the world, with the first BMW Classic centre opening in Switzerland in 2009.

As part of the BMW Classic appointment, experts from the BMW Group Classic department in Munich provided comprehensive technical training to staff at Worthington BMW.

“BMW’s heritage dates back 108 years [and] is extremely important to our brand,” said Wolfgang Buechel, CEO of BMW Group Australia. “The introduction of the BMW Classic service has been successfully offered at our BMW Group Classic department in Munich for many years.

“With a vibrant community of classic BMW enthusiasts in Australia, including 15 BMW clubs nationwide that have over 5,000 members, this service will be a one-stop shop for customers who want to restore or maintain their classic BMWs in top condition.”

BMW Australia said it is committed to expanding the service, working with its network of 48 dealers across the nation.
