Here are some tips and tricks to protect your vehicle from pollen damage.  Pollen is that yellow stuff that covers your car when Spring starts. It looks harmless. If you look at it under a microscope, you can see that it has little hooks that are used to latch on things. Pollen can latch onto your clothes, car, and hair. It is also very acidic meaning when it gets wet from rain; rain can also be acidic, the mixture will eat away the paint on your car.  Removing pollen isn’t as easy as you think, so here is what not to do.

The Most Important Fluids Your Car Needs

The Most Important Fluids Your Car Needs

Just like humans, cars need fluids too. Without them, both of us die. Or at the minimum leave us with costly medical or auto repair bills. Humans can’t go without fluids for more than 3 or 4 days.

Why Are Master Techs Important for German Automobiles?

Call us biased, but we think German-made automobiles are the BEST! Why? Call it a passion for German engineering, or the joy of a purring-yet-powerful engine. We love German cars here at Bimmer Rescue. But why are Master-level automotive technicians so important for German automobiles? Ah, Grasshopper, let us count the ways. German engineering is unique when compared to Asian or American engineering. German vehicles are more often built for performance over reliability. Specific skills, software, and precision tools are best for German automotive service and maintenance. Advanced engineering requires advanced mechanical training and problem-solving know-how. Troubleshooting a German-brand automobile isn’t always easy as a walk in the park. German cars have expensive parts, and Master mechanics are less likely to make costly repair mistakes involving OEM parts. German auto repair and service requires mechanical knowledge that is often so specific that our technicians are c ... read more

What German Car Maintenance Is Important for Wintertime?

What German Car Maintenance Is Important for Wintertime?

The auto mechanics at Bimmer Rescue are your premier pick for expert auto repair for BMW, MINI, and Audi vehicles. We are the reliable source for drivers throughout Richmond, Short Pump, The West End, and The Fan District when they need information on preparing German cars for winter. Winter can take its toll on your vehicle so our team wants to make sure how to prepare your car. First, it's best to swap out the all-season tires for winter tires. If you live in a region where the temperature drops below 45 degrees, winter tires will be helpful because they give you better traction when stopping and turning on pavement that is cold. It's also smart to check tire pressure weekly because driving with tires that are underinflated can make them wear down and have less traction on slippery surfaces. Also, consider keeping your tank at least half full at all times in case you get stuck in the snow and are waiting for assistance. During the colder months, it's also suggested to ad ... read more
