Recommended Labour Rates (Body & Paint) for Approved BMW/MINI Body & Paint Centres
Dear Panel Insurer, Non-Panel Insurer and Loss Adjusters,
 
 
BMW Malaysia together with our authorised dealer network are committed to providing both quality products and services through continuous improvements in terms of manpower, equipment and its facilities.
 
With the introduction and rapid market expansion of both PHEV and full EV variants, it is imperative that manufacturers and their dealers invested heavily in specialist equipment and training to ensure that the quality and safety of these high voltage vehicle repairs are not at all compromised.
 
BMW Malaysia continues to conduct body & paint centre audits across our network using the latest BMW standards and guidelines. Our standards are continuously reviewed and updated based on the latest BMW/MINI vehicle technologies and general requirements.
 
Having said the above, please be informed that BMW Malaysia’s recommended body & paint labour rate has increased to MRY 300 per hour for petrol (ICE) and plug in hybrid vehicles (PHEV) and, RM 320 per hour for fully electric vehicles (BEV). Both the mentioned labour rates cover our full range of BMW and MINI products effective 1 February 2024.
 
Please note that these recommended labour rates are only eligible for BMW and MINI authorised dealers that have passed our audit requirements (“approved dealers”). Our “approved” dealers will be able to provide you with a copy of the approved repairer letter issued by BMW Malaysia upon request. 
 
Yours faithfully  
BMW Malaysia Sdn. Bhd.

Message from PIAM
PIAM Supports A Progressive Motor Vehicle Accident Repair Industry
 
PIAM looks forward to the release of the Malaysian Standard - Motor Vehicle Aftermarket Smash Repair Requirements (“MS”) anticipated to be in Q1 2024. This MS is expected to set new standards in ensuring safe and proper automotive smash repair through the adoption of industry best practices with contributions from various stakeholders in the motor accident repair ecosystem including Jabatan Pengangkutan Jalan Malaysia (“JPJ”), workshop association, and repairers, (including motor franchise repairers) etc.
 
In parallel, the Automotive Engineering Division of JPJ is also in the midst of revising the guidelines on vehicle accident repair to ensure that quality and safe methods are used in repair of accident motor vehicles in accordance with the Road Transport Act 1987. The development of these guidelines takes into account the latest automotive technology and repair methodology focusing on the following areas of repair including but not limited to kink/bend, chassis and wheel alignment and body corrosion. These guidelines when implemented would be made mandatory for repair of all private vehicles.
 
PIAM is fully supportive and looks forward to further collaboration with all stakeholders as we forge forward together in shaping a motor vehicle accident repair industry that prioritises safety, quality and consumers’ welfare.
 
PIAM is closely monitoring this and other important regulatory developments and will review their implications on the motor vehicle accident repair ecosystem and the way forward.
