Gifts for Car Lovers

Ah, February! Time to shower the car lovers in your life with gifts from the heart. Whether you are on a tight budget or have money to burn, here are a few Valentine’s Day gift ideas for the car lovers in your life.

Key finder. Ever forget where you put your keys? If losing keys is a daily part of yours, or your sweetie’s, daily routine, purchase a key finder.

Back-up camera. Not everyone has the budget to buy a new or used vehicle that has a factory-installed back-up camera. For those car lovers who want the safety feature of a back-up camera, you can purchase an aftermarket model and have it installed.

Front-view camera. Though a front-view camera is not as standard as a back-up camera, a front-view camera is super smart for people who take their vehicles off-road and/or live in a hilly or mountainous region. The BMW X5 has a factory-installed front-view camera, and it’s an excellent safety feature. You might want to consider purchasing an aftermarket front-view camera for your favorite car lover.

Branded cufflinks. Not everyone wears shirts that require cufflinks, but if your car-loving sweetheart is a cufflinks wearer, why not purchase a set of BMW cufflinks, Mercedes-Benz cufflinks, or MINI cufflinks? They are pretty stunning, don’t you agree?

A membership to a local car club. There are so many awesome car clubs to choose from near Columbia, SC. If your loved one drives a BMW and wants to improve his or her driving skills, spend some time on a closed track, race, or hang out with other auto enthusiasts, you may consider buying your sweetheart a membership pass for a local BMW club. Car club members have a fun time together, and it’s also a great way to network.

Preventive maintenance. It may not be as romantic, but covering the cost of preventive maintenance for your sweetie’s vehicle shows that you truly care about his or her safety. If you’re unsure about what type of preventive maintenance the vehicle needs, contact Brown Motor Works today, or stop by our shop at 520 Clemson Rd., Columbia, SC 29229, so we can perform an inspection on the vehicle. For the best service, schedule an appointment online. We specialize in BMW, Mercedes-Benz, and Mini Cooper vehicles.
