The Evolution of the BMW

The Evolution of the BMW

At Antero Automotive, we know BMW. In fact, one of our technicians is BMW-factory trained and knows them inside and out. We are passionate about BMW and that’s why we are BMW specialists. Because we love them so much, we wanted to take a moment and reflect on their evolution. Not everyone is a BMW fan, but those of us who are are truly committed to the brand. It doesn’t matter that the parts cost more or because they are designed with performance in mind, they are far more complicated than the average garage can handle… we adore them because they truly give us the ultimate driving experience.   BMW started out with aircraft engines in 1916 and went to motorcycles in 1923 before making the leap to the automobile in 1927. The very first BMW production car was the BMW 3/15. They’ve come a long way, baby. The BMW 3/20 is the first car designed and produced solely by BMW… doesn’t look a whole lot different the the 3/15, but at least it was all B ... read more

What BMW Revealed at the November, 2018 L.A. Auto Show

What BMW Revealed at the November, 2018 L.A. Auto Show

BMW continues to innovate and expand their ideas as well as their place in the luxury market. With this idea in mind, they introduced the BMW X7 as the next of the bold and beautiful model in their crossover lineup. Yes, it is big. Yes, it holds its own when it comes to a huge on-road presence. Three rows and seating for 7 does not diminish its luxurious feel even though there’s something about that fact that really should. But it doesn’t. That’s part of the Bimmer magic. Beyond the 7 is the 8 Series and WOW do these models beg for you to jump behind the wheel and take to the track. The reason for that undeniable pull is, for the first time, they started with developing the 8 Series as a track car and then modified them for the open road. These gorgeous coupes and convertible vehicles exemplify BMW’s commitment to the ultimate driving experience. The coupe will hit showroom floors a few months before the convertible, but the joy and freedom it will provide wil ... read more

What Every Audi Owner Should Know About Auto Repair At Antero Automotive

What Every Audi Owner Should Know About Auto Repair At Antero Automotive

Aren’t Audis great cars? We love servicing and repairing Audi vehicles here at Antero Automotive & Truck Services because they are such great cars. After all, Audi is made by the same people who make Porsche and Volkswagen, so how can you not love the German engineering behind Audi vehicles? The Audi brand is known for luxury. The name alone is Latin for “listen,” which is the translation of the founder’s last name, August Horch. Audis are made with high-quality components and designed with plenty of well-appointed features. Audi drivers enjoy listening to the purr of the engine as they drive along the highways and byways of Colorado. When it comes to reputation, Audi is well-known as a comparable alternative to its rival, BMW.

What Every BMW Owner Should Know About Auto Repair At Antero Automotive

What Every BMW Owner Should Know About Auto Repair At Antero Automotive

If you own a BMW, congratulations! They are wonderfully engineered European automobiles and are a thrill to drive. At Antero Automotive & Truck Services, we confess that we get a thrill each time a BMW comes into our shop for auto repair and service. We are passionate about all cars, but BMW is one of our favorite automobile brands for sure. That is why we specialize in repairing these vehicles; we have factory-trained auto mechanics that know these BMWs inside and out. However, when you are new to owning a BMW, some things that may surprise you. BMWs are engineered differently than American-made or Asian-made vehicles. They are designed with performance in mind; not for ease of service. Therefore, the average person would have a difficult time servicing and repairing their BMW in their own garage because BMWs require specialized tools and software equipment to meet factory standards and warranty maintenance. Because our highly-skilled automotive technicians are factory trained, w ... read more

Why Drive a BMW?

Why Drive a BMW?

Well, if you’ve ever driven a BMW, you’ll probably already have an answer for that. If you haven’t… well, then, you really should. I mean what’s not to love. Just look at those sleek lines of the new BMW Z4 Roadster. Innovation remains at the forefront of all BMW does and sitting behind the wheel of this beauty only brings happiness and joy. The BMW is rare in that it delivers grace and style without ever sacrificing power. You look good driving it and when you want to feel its power, a little more weight on the gas and you know it’s there for the taking.  BMW is always pushing the innovation envelope on all fronts. It’s loaded with safety as well as luxury features and stands competitively when it comes to the green future of the automotive industry. While it’s a luxury vehicle, it usually comes in under the pricing of other comparable brands such as Mercedes-Benz and Lexus. You can buy a BMW for a very reasonable price, and while ... read more

Why We Support Project Angel Tree

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, everywhere you go! At Antero’s Automotive in Greenwood Village, we love the holidays. It’s a time for viewing outside of ourselves and contributing to the holiday spirit. It’s also a time to be conscientious of the needs of others and how to keep our loved ones safe. We are grateful for so much and know that we wouldn’t be in business with you. We also know that it’s important to give back to those who might not have as much as we do right now. Antero’s Automotive supports Project Angel Tree because we want to make sure that all kids have presents under the tree for the holidays. No one should go without. Shane’s son went along for the drop-offs one year and became friends with one of the recipients. You never know when you’ll make a connection or a new friend. The simplest gesture can be all that someone needs to turn around their day or to feel valued. Simple acts of kindness matter ... read more

Why are Tire Chains so Important?

As we head into the winter months here in Colorado, the importance of tire care becomes even more important. Chains, tread depth, overall tire conditions matter when it comes to winter safety. And the team here at Antero Automotive puts you and your safety at the forefront of all we do. Proper tire attire can make all the difference when you’re in a snowy/icy area. Same thing with tire condition and tread depth. You want your tires to grip the ground exactly at the moment you need them to. No ending up in a ditch! Or worse.  When it comes to the tread on your tire, it’s not just about pretty patterns. Those patterns are designed to direct water away from the tire as well as to help you stay safely connected to the road, accelerate, overall handling, and stopping. The industry standard here in the U.S. for proper tread depth is between 8/32” and 10/32”. Your tire isn’t considered bald, though, until it reaches 2/32”. During our wetter months, yo ... read more

Climbing Mt. Antero is a lot like opening up an automotive repair shop… or vice versa.

Climbing one of Colorado’s 53 fourteeners is no easy feat. It requires foresight, training, and the right equipment. You don’t just walk out your front door and go straight up a fourteener. The likelihood of your success would be incredibly low. When Andy Emery set out to open Antero Automotive, he did it in much the same way he prepared for his ascent of Mount Antero. In a sense, he trained for it… years of devotion to learning not only about how to repair cars but the automotive repair industry itself. He also dedicated himself to learning how to run a shop effectively. From the time he was a kid, he already had the passion and curiosity around taking things apart and putting them back together. That day he summited Mt. Antero, he knew that when he opened his repair shop, that would be the name. Mount Antero is named after Chief Antero of the Uintah band of the Ute people. It is 14, 276 feet at its highest and rises 7,200 feet above the town of Salida. It is one o ... read more
