BMW Master Technician Joins Bowman’s Auto Repair

Brady Bowman represents the family's third generation to work in the automotive industry

Brady Bowman, a BMW certified master technician, has joined the team at Bowman’s Auto Repair.

He is a third-generation Bowman working in the automotive field, dating back to his grandfather, George Bowman of Bowman Motors.

He started working on vehicles at his father Steve’s shop, Bowman’s Auto Repair, when he was in high school. It was during that time that he decided to pursue a career in the industry.

After high school, Brady Bowman attended the Universal Technical Institute in Phoenix, Ariz., where he received an associate’s degree in automotive technology in 2001. He returned to Santa Barbara and completed the BMW Step Program. That same year, he started working for a local BMW dealership, where he advanced to become a BMW master technician, which required the completion of 27 additional BMW certified classes.

Bowman’s Auto Repair, established in 1988, is located at 910-A Philinda Ave. in Santa Barbara. For an appointment, click here or call 805.965.5051.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
