Automatic Transmission Service

Lifetime fluid is a myth and any true Bavarian enthusiast knows that transmission fluid and filter need to be changed every 60K miles. BMW dealers do not perform this service, ever, so if you are driving a car that recently came off warranty, this is service should be your top priority.

 

Differentials and Transfer Case Service on all-wheel-drive (xi) models

Similarly to transmissions, transfer cases and differentials need to be serviced at least every 60K miles. BMW dealers do not perform this service, ever, so if you are driving a car without evidence that this was done, this is service should be your top priority.

 

Spark Plugs

This is a critical preventative item and unlike previous BMW generations, the N52 and N54 motors consume spark plugs at 45K-50K mile intervals. 

 

High-Pressure Fuel Pump

BMW warranties fuel pumps up to 120K miles. However, these pumps continue to fail on higher mileage cars and we offer an upgraded high-pressure fuel pump at a fraction of the dealer cost.

 

Valve Cover Gasket:

Manifested by the smell of burning oil, this is a must-do repair that is often neglected and can cause an engine fire, as the oil drips on the catalytic converters.

 

Oil Separator/PCV Valve

This 100% failure rate item and is not always obvious unless your car burns oil and smokes at start up. In 2007 and newer BMWs, we highly recommend replacing the PCV system at the same time as the valve cover gasket replacement.

 

Control Arms aka Thrust Arms

The four control arms give your BMW the handling it’s known for. However, they wear out prematurely and should be replaced around 100K miles.

 

Oil Filter Housing Gasket

This 100% failure rate item on all N52 and N54 motors and when neglected can cause oil to be mixed with coolant.  Every single E9x BMW is going to have this issue and it’s better to get it done sooner rather than later.

 

Cooling System Service

Water pump, thermostat, coolant hoses. Although improved from previous generations, N52 and N54 motors use an electric water pump that fails without a warning. We highly recommend preemptive replacement of water pump and hoses before they fail, usually every 4 years or 60K miles.

 

Clean Valves for Turbo N54s

Due to direct-injected nature of N54s 335i, they are prone to carbon build up in the intake and valves. This manifests in a significant loss of power. We remove the intake and remove carbon deposits from the runners and valves, restoring your 3.0L turbo motor to its true potential.
