BMW Navigator 5/6 Replacement
Unfortunately, the BMW Navigator 5 & 6 have a (well deserved) reputation for failure and until now, this meant arguing with BMW to try to get a replacement and the replacement units very soon have the same issues as the originals. We have heard on some owners having three or four replacements. As a result, many owners have resorted to buying another BMW unit to replace them and frequently found that this unit has been removed because its faulty and has been sold on by an unscrupulous vendor.
As recently appointed agents for Garmin Navigation Systems, we can now offer a superior unit (Garmin Zumo XT & XT2) with a host of new features to enhance your riding experience. We can offer a complete installation service including an adaptor to take power from the old mount and so avoid the need for any additional wiring for bikes fitted with the original BMW Navigator mount. Please call for a quote.
Worthing Girls Rugby sponsored dip in the sea update.
Due to the impact of Storm Isha, and the resulting dangerous sea conditions, the sponsored dip in the sea planned for today, Sunday 21st January, by The Worthing Girls Rugby Teams has been postponed. A new date has been provisionally set for Sunday February 11th, we will confirm nearer the time.
We would like to thanks everyone who has generously sponsored the girls at this difficult financial time.
Worthing Girls Rugby Appeal
One of the girls, Jess Ricca-Maggs, sustained a serious injury during a tournament last year and was told that she had torn her ACL (Anterior Cruciate Ligament) which any sportsman / woman will know is a career threatening injury.
Unfortunately, due the extreme pressures on the NHS, her surgery is not planned until late this year or possibly early next year. However, as she has started her GCSE coursework and one of her chosen subjects is PE, she has been told that if she is unable to particpate in the physical sections of the course, then she will not complete the required coursework and will subsequently fail. As a gifted sportswoman with a bright future ahead of her, it would be a terrible waste if this should happen.
Her parents have taken the brave move of electing to have her treated privately later this month, at great expense to themselves.
Worthing Girls Rugby U16 & U14 teams are supporting her by arranging a dip in the sea on Sunday 21st January and the girls are looking for sponsorship to help their team-mate.
It would be fantastic if you could help Jess.
Worthing Girls Rugby
As part of our continued support of Worthing Girls Rugby, we are excited to donate a gazebo to keep the girls cool in the summer and dry in the winter. On its first outing at an U14 County League match at Horsham (which the girls won 46-5), the gazebo was greatly appreciated by the players and possibly even more by the parents as the weather was pretty awful.
ECM Motorcycles wish the girls continued sucess in the future.
As part of a review of our business, we have come to a difficult decision;
From 1st September 2023 we will no longer be carrying out ANY mechanical work (inc servicing) on BMW S series (S1000S/R/RR/XR) and F series (F650/700/750/800/850) motorcycles.
This is due to a lack of technical information available from BMW and the need for VERY expensive special tools which are increasingly required to keep these bikes running at their best.
This change will allow us to focus on our core business of BMW R series (R1100/1150/1200/1250)
Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused.
Due to your continued support and the growth in the business over the last year, we have unfortunately, reached the VAT threshold and as result we will be forced to become another unpaid tax collector for HMRC.
We appreciate that this will put extra pressure on everyone’s already stretched finances. To try to help, we will be keeping our labour rate same as it has been for the last three years but obviously plus VAT from 1st Jan 2023. However, this will still mean that we offer excellent value when compared to our main dealer competitors who are charging more than double our rates.
Look forward to seeing you again soon.
