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
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.
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.
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.
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.
Double Vanos Seals on ’01-’06 3.0L
3.0L 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.
V8 Timing Chain Guides
Probably the most common cause of death for all M62 V8 motors, this is a rather involved problem that is not to be taken lightly. Manifested by rattling noise in the upper engine, when not addressed, the engine starts eating itself from the inside, causing irrevocable damage. We do this the right way, replacing all the guides and timing chain covers, not leaving any gaskets unattended.
