What German Car Maintenance Is Important for Summertime?

What German Car Maintenance Is Important for Summertime?

    With summer approaching, it’s time to get your German vehicle ready for the hotter season. Join clients from Richmond, Short Pump, The West End, and The Fan District who choose the auto mechanics at Bimmer Rescue for auto repair services. Just because the frigid temperatures have disappeared, it doesn’t mean your car’s prepared for the elements. Extreme heat can be just as damaging as the harsh cold. Luckily, with a bit of preparation, you can be sure your vehicle is running smoothly and safely all summer. Here are some helpful auto repair tips from the team at Bimmer rescue to prepare you and your car for the warmer days and nights.   Check your oil: Oil keeps your engine lubricated, which lessens friction and heat buildup under your hood.

Why We Don’t Allow Customer-Supplied Parts

Why We Don’t Allow Customer-Supplied Parts

Car owners from Richmond, Short Pump, The West End, and The Fan District have come to trust that they’ll receive quality and reliable auto repair from the auto mechanics at Bimmer Rescue. In a nutshell, here’s why it’s not cool for customers to bring in their own parts. It’s like going to the grocery store and purchasing a delicious, uncooked t-bone steak. Then, you go down the street to Outback Steakhouse and tell the server you want the chef to cook it for you medium-rare. You’d be kicked out of Outback Steakhouse, wouldn’t you? Well, the same goes here at Bimmer Rescue. Liability: The auto mechanics at Bimmer Rescue don’t know the quality of the supplies that you would bring in. We are certain that all the parts that we use are in pristine condition and the best in the auto industry. We want to guarantee quality and by allowing us to use our supplies makes our job easier and more efficient. Insurance: Every business has risks and that&rsquo ... read more

Why We Don’t Give Phone Estimates

Why We Don’t Give Phone Estimates

At Bimmer Rescue it is our policy to not give out quotes over the phone.  When a shop tells you a price without a physical evaluation of the vehicle, they may be trying to please you but they're really not helping you.  Cars are complicated these days, even a simple part is often part of a complex system and it is IMPOSSIBLE to know exactly what needs without a physical evaluation.  If a shop gives you a phone quote they are just telling you what you want to hear, it's very likely that they will find it needs more $$$ after they get it all apart.  The shop will either have to charge you more, eat the cost, or even worse they'll try and cut a corner to make it work without charging you or eating the cost.  Neither option is fair or honest, that's why we always demand a physical evaluation of the vehicle.  If the reason you don't want to drop it off is that you're not sure you trust us just yet we can understand th ... read more
