BMW service and repair in Zambia/Malawi?
« on: June 29, 2014, 01:31:56 am »
Hello Everyone!

I am currently crossing Africa on a GS1200 ADV and will soon need to service the bike. Any information on where I could do that in either Zambia or Malawi?

Thank you

BMW international doesn't list any dealers outside of South Africa, I'm afraid.  :sip:

I have seen a bmw dealer in lilongwe malawi, but it was only a car dealership. I think you could arrange that you take the bike there and maybe oversee the service in person to make sure of what they are doing. Or they could oversee you doing the service. If it is for the warranty of course, otherwise service it yourself.
