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

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. If your car lost all of its fluids at the same time, you would simply be out of luck and out of a car. Finito!  Here are the top 8 fluids your vehicle needs to keep on keepin’ on! Gasoline: The most obvious of the 8. We take this one for granted because it’s a habit to fill up when our fuel light indicator tells us it’s time. Make sure you are using the best quality gasoline for your car and do your best to not let it get too low before every fill up. If for no other reason than you are more likely to run out!  Oil: Without it, your engine doesn’t will seize up, and you will very quickly find yourself broken down with a potentially huge auto repair bill in your hand. Darn it! This is a pretty easy fluid to stay on top of even if you go long periods ... read more

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
