At Bimmer Haus we specialize in the care and feeding of BMWs and MINIs as well as their owners. The bulk of our work is routine service, maintenance, and repairs, but we are also nationally renowned for building and maintaining (and driving) national championship BMW race cars. Our staff is also active in BMW driver training and education and has actively supported local and national BMW CCA activities since the day we opened. You will not find a more competent staff nor more comprehensive BMW and MINI service experience anywhere.
Meet the Bimmer Haus Team
Left to Right: Bob, Jim, Bryan and Pat
Bob Tunnell - President & General Manager
Bob manages the day-to-day business operations of the Bimmer Haus and serves as a consultant on all racecar prep and development. Bob's colorful resume includes experience as a film and television producer, racing event promoter, stunt driver and champion race car driver and avid collector of BMW vehicles.
Jim Leithauser - Chief Technician & Race Prep
Jim serves as Chief Technician, performing general service and repairs, and also oversees all of our high performance projects and race car fabrication and prep work. Jim is a mechanical engineer and is an ASE Master Technician.
Bryan Lodato - Technician & Race Prep
Bryan joined the Bimmer Haus team in July 2014 as our newest Service Technician and brings a very high level of expertise and tremendous BMW experience to our staff.
He was born on Long Island, New York, but spent most of his wonder years in North Carolina. After attending UNC Wilmington he entered the NASCAR Technical Institute and has been wrenching on race and street cars ever since.
Bryan graduated from the BMW STEP program in 2008 as a Level One BMW Master Technician and received additional full certifications in BMW Hybrid and BMW Diesel vehicles. This guy really knows his stuff.
After working at BMW Dealerships in the Carolinas for six years, Bryan and his wife, Kat, decided it was time to move west and headed to Colorado in 2013. He currently lives in Aurora, but says working at Bimmer Haus is worth the drive. (I didn't even have to twist his arm to say that!).
Bryan has really taken to the Colorado lifestyle and is now an avid mountain biker and snowboarder. He still has a ways to go, however... he's a New York Jets fan. Yeah... I know... but fumble and all.
On the road Kat drives an X1, but Bryan is still in an Infiniti. Like I said... he's still got a ways to go... but we're working on him.
Pat is the voice that greets you on the phone and the smiling face at the front desk. In his spare time Pat volunteers with a local fire department, coaches a Little League baseball team, and delivers meals to the elderly. Despite the fact that he's making the rest of us look bad, we're really proud to have him as part of the Bimmer Haus team!
