Customer Reviews

Seriously, these guys are legends! The most professional service I've ever experienced with a genuine desire to help you. Patrick is only looking out for YOUR best interest and the technicians are some of the most skillful in Richmond. Could not have been happier with the experience, quality of service and most importantly, how my M3 felt after leaving the shop. Great guys and the best in Richmond in my opinion. Give them a call, they take care of you.
Ryan D.
Thanks for the review Ryan, we really enjoyed sorting out your M3, it's a really cool car!
Had a drivetrain malfunction notification come up on my dash after coming back from a trip. Patrick and his team did a full diagnostics. It turned out to be the clutch and flywheel issue. They replaced it and ever since then it has been running better than when I first bought it. Bimmer rescue was great in keeping me updated with my car and I will be taking my BMW here for future maintenance and fixes. 2013 BMW 328i F30

Patrick was awesome! From the beginning his thoughtful approach and attention to detail was excellent. My car was in and out within a day along with a preventive maintenance report. Not only am I recommending Bimmer Rescue, I'm happy to admit the "B" in my contacts replaced the BMW dealers! Ronnie New Bimmer Rescue Customer ..YUP!
Ronnie T.
Ronnie, thank you for the review! We really appreciate you trusting us with your BMW!
Service was outstanding. Their pre-purchase inspection was very detailed, including notes from the technician and possible upcoming problems with the car I was trying to buy. They saved me a lot of money. Mike not only talked to me about the car but has also kept in touch with possible deals for used BMW's in the area. The shop and crew will definitely take care of you here.

Rafael, thank you so much for the review, we appreciate your feedback! Good luck on the car hunt, you'll find one that fits your needs.
I want to give two thumbs up to Patrick McHugh and his team at Bimmer Rescue. I had them perform a pre-purchase inspection of a used BMW because theire checklist was more comprensive then what other shops were using. But more importantly, they found some flaws in the paint that eventually lead to my not purchasing the car and saving me a great deal of potential heartburn.
Bill C.
Thanks for the good review Bill! Best of luck in your search for that perfect 1 series, we're always here if you find another in the Richmond area that you want evaluated.

Community Outreach

Giving back to the community is something that feel is extremely important!

Organizations we are involved in:


40+ years ago every other high schooler worked at a gas station and just about everyone tinkered with their cars in their driveway. Nowadays it is not so; Cars are too complicated for most DIY work, the equipment needed to work on them is too expensive and people don't have as much time to devote to learning about cars. This has caused a great shortage of people wanting to become technicians and is harming our industry. Working on todays vehicles can be financially and personally rewarding and does not require a 4 year degree so we play our part to educate youth.


  • We sponsor the BSA Automotive Maintenance Merit Badge
  • We host 15-20 boy scouts every session
  • Scouts learn how an engine works, how to change a tire, how to change oil and the basics of car maintenance
  • We give the scouts exposure to the auto industry so they know about the careers available


According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics women make up 20.9% of all employees at auto dealers in 2016. Women make up less than 1% of technicians actually fixing the cars. This sad statistic shows that our industry as a whole has not been welcoming to women and we are paying the price. There is a shortage of qualified, experienced master technicians that could be easily fixed if more women started working on cars. Times have changed, you do not need brawn to fix a car, brains are more important, so we've made it our responsibility to show young women that they can work on cars if they want to!


  • We offer merit badge equivalent training to girl scouts
  • Scouts learn how an engine works, how to change a tire, how to change oil and the basics of car maintenance
  • We give the scouts exposure to the auto industry so they know about the careers available
  • We show the scouts how to substitute brains for brawn and show them that they CAN DO IT


Art and auto repair? It seems like an unlikely mix, but at Bimmer Rescue, it’s the norm. Bimmer Rescue, the go-to auto repair shop for Richmond, Short Pump, The West End, and The Fan District drivers, is part of something called the community art wall. At this event, we bring two seemingly different professions, auto mechanics, and artists, together for a night of fun and camaraderie. For the community art wall, we offer local and upcoming artists a chance to use our auto repair shop for their opening.


We transform our facility into an art gallery, bring in a food truck, and send out invitations for auto mechanics, customers, and artists alike. It is an entirely family-friendly event, and the art pieces are for sale.

Welcome to Bimmer Rescue, the premier auto repair shop for drivers who live near and around Richmond, Short Pump, The West End, and The Fan District. Our team of highly qualified auto mechanics and customer service advisors specialize in BMW, MINI, and Audi because these are cars that we have passion for and training in. When you enter our state-of-the-art facility, you will see art, hear jazz music, and notice our atmosphere is infused with a genuine warmth and comfortable feeling. Your experience with us will truly be one-of-a-kind.

We understand that clients can choose from many auto repair shops in our area. The team at Bimmer Rescue is truly honored to be picked time and time again by families throughout the communities of Richmond, Short Pump, The West End, and The Fan District.

Here are some of the reasons that clients choose to remain loyal to us:

    • We stand behind the quality and reliability of our work 100%. That’s why we provide a nationwide 3-year/36,000-mile warranty on most auto repairs performed by our auto mechanics.

    • All of our auto mechanics are Masters with at least 10 years experience.

    • We offer loaner car, Uber, or shuttle. Owner of Bimmer Rescue, Patrick McHugh, will personally drive customers so he can get to know them.

    • We use the most current tools, equipment, and diagnostic systems in the auto repair industry.

    • Brakes for Breast is an annual event in November. During that month, we wear pink shirts in the shop. If you need brakes this month, you get free brake pads on your car. You just have to pay for the rotors, sensors, and the work. We donate 10% to the Cleveland Clinic, as they are searching for a cure.

    • Bimmer Rescue has art by local artists in the shop and has events to showcase and sell art.

    • Patrick McHugh is a certified Boy Scout Merit Badge Counselor and Bimmer Rescue does Boy Scout Merit Badges. Boy Scouts come into the shop and he teaches boys, ranging between 12-16, about basic maintenance and electronics of cars.

    • We do a complimentary digital inspection on each car. We don’t just want to get to know you, but we also want to get to know your car.
