Your First BMW

Your First BMW

Photo by Artiom Vallat on Unsplash   Welcome to the blog for May! We’re chatting about the things as mechanics and BMW owners we wish other drivers had told us before buying our own first BMW.   Do you remember the first Bimmer you owned? If you’ve never owned one before, it can be hard to relate. They are gorgeous cars and will likely fill you with pride. But like all makes and models, BMWs have their issues. It’s best to deal with those issues upfront so that nothing comes between you and your love of your car. Here’s our advice:   BMW’s are great cars, not perfect cars. As excellent as they are, they need maintenance and support to thrive. You can trust your Bimmer to come through for you, bu ... read more

Gratitude For Our Cars

Gratitude For Our Cars

With November approaching, despite the hardships of the past year, it’s important to recognize that we’ve survived, and to give thanks for that. As we gather together for Thanksgiving at the end of the month, perhaps it’s a good time to give praise to that family member that we rely on too readily and credit too little: our cars. You can’t give your BMW a slice of pumpkin pie or the drumstick, or even a place at the table, but you can show a little more love to your car in the year ahead. Here’s a list of ideas to show your BMW the love over the next year: Keep it clean inside and out. Dirt inside your BMW is unhealthy for you, and dirt n the outside of your BMW can get caught in your car’s systems, choking them. Also, a clean car is a happier driver… and you are less anxious to protect a car that you think of as dirty. Clean car = safer car. Protect the interior. If your BMW has a leather interior, it&rsqu ... read more

Community Outreach: Making a Difference

Community Outreach: Making a Difference

A community is more than just a diverse group of people. It’s families and it’s also strangers who trust each other to do right by each other... an ecosystem of justice and an economic system of interdependence and reliance.  We can’t claim to know everyone around us, but the more we know each other, the more we strengthen the bonds of community. By promoting organizations that add good things to our community, we create a better society for Richmond, Short Pump, The West End, and The Fan District.  Supporting each other is supporting ourselves. That’s why Bimmer Rescue has a community outreach program: we want to feed back into our community and help it grow, knowing that we will grow with it, and be enriched by it with better lives and a happier standard of living. Here are some of the community outreach programs that Bimmer Rescue takes part in: Richmond Arts Scene Did you know that we host a family-friendly art opening at Bimm ... read more

Cleaning the Interior of Your Car

Cleaning the Interior of Your Car

As we head into fall, there’s nothing nicer than having a clean car to enjoy along with the change of season. We put a lot into making our cars look nice, from washing and waxing, to deep cleaning our interiors. It can be really difficult to keep the insides of our cars clean, but here are a few ideas that should help you make it last. Muffin tin liners are great for muffins and cupcakes, but did you know that they are also great for helping you keep your cup holders clean? They can catch most of the debris that mysteriously (and not so mysteriously!) ends up creating a mess. Not only that, but they are also super easy to change out and are not costly. Fall weather brings more rain. One way to help keep your windshield wipers streak free is to quickly douse them with rubbing alcohol. This will greatly help to keep your windshield clear and easy to see through because it will help your wipers effectively do their job. You’ll want to use some windex on the inside of your wi ... read more

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. It’s true that if you stay on a regular preventive maintenance schedule, not only will you save yourself money in the long run, you’ll significantly decrease the chances of ending up broken down on the side of the road. Regardless, if it ever happens to you, make sure you know what to do to minimize the damage that’s already been done. The worst thing you can do is to keep driving it like nothing's wrong.  Your best bet is to pull over immediately. The more you drive after it overheats, the more extensive the damage. Even so, stay safe and pull over in a good location and turn off the engine. Don’t be in a hurry to open the hood. Wait until it’s completely cooled down. You may not be able to see that on your temperature gauge on the dash, so just don’t rush.  Pull out your Owner’s Manual if yo ... read more

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
