E60 5 Series BMW Produced from 2004 thru 2010 as: 525i 528i 530i 535i 545i 550i M5
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.
Oil Separator/PCV Valve
This 100% failure rate item and is not always obvious unless your car burns oil and smokes like a steam roller. Every single E60 is going to have this issue and if you haven’t replaced it in the last couple of years, it’s better to get it done sooner rather than later.
Cooling System Service
Water pump, thermostat, coolant hoses, and overflow tank. An Achilles heel of most BMWs, cooling systems are notorious for failing and causing severe engine damage. 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.
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.
Valley Pan and Coolant Transfer Pipe Replacement on M62 4.4 and N62 4.8 V8 motors
Manifested by a coolant leak either front under the intake or from a weeping hole, this is a very common malady that in the past required an extensive engine tear-down. We have since perfected the procedure using an after-market pipe kit, which allows us to perform this repair without taking apart half of the engine, saving you thousands of dollars.
Double Vanos Seals on ’04-’05 525i and 530i
2.5L and 3.0L M52TU and M54 motors are known to wear out Vanos seals prematurely and besides a loud rattle, affect the timing. We have a strong partnership with Beisan Systems, which produces a repair kit well above OE specifications that eliminate this issue for good.
Valve Cover Gasket
Manifested by the smell of burning oil, this is an easy repair that is often neglected and can cause an engine fire, as the oil drips on the catalytic converters.
Oil Filter Housing Gasket on 525i 530i 528i 535i
This 100% failure rate item is not obvious, as most owners can’t see the source of the leak. Every single 6 cylinder BMW is going to have this issue and it’s better to get it done sooner rather than later.
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 at 100K miles.
Clean Valves for ’08-’10 535i (Turbo N54)
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.
