What to Do When Your Car Overheats

What to Do When Your Car Overheats

Even the most proactive vehicle owner can find themselves dealing with a car that’s overheated on these hot summer Richmond days.

Why Are STEM Programs So Darned Important?

Why Are STEM Programs So Darned Important?

At Bimmer Rescue, we believe in supporting the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) Programs in our local schools. Why? There are several reasons that are both practical and personal. In this blog article, we will address five reasons Bimmer Rescue happily supports and teaches at schools in Richmond, Virginia. 1. STEM is fun! We should know, because that’s what we do for a living here at Bimmer Rescue. Let’s face it. If STEM wasn’t fun, we wouldn’t have been attracted to the auto repair industry in the first place. STEM is fun! 2. STEM is good for business! As auto mechanics, we often apply the scientific method to problem-solving, study the latest in automotive technology, flex our engineering skills, and use mathematics to produce the final repair bill. There are few businesses in today’s world that don’t use some form of Science, Technology, Engineering, or Math. Even if you work a job that is not technical, chances are extr ... read more
