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 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
