Classic BMWs love this stuff! This is what Jonathon, one of our technicians is using in his XJ Jeep Cherokee off-roading machine. It seems some pretty severe duty and he thinks it deserves the best oil and additives! You should check out his Instagram and congrats on 20k subscribers! #trail_trash

Unfortunately we see this happen too often. One of our Mini Cooper clients paid another shop (a local Mini Cooper dealership) for a list of repairs which included replacing the thermostat. A few weeks ago their Mini started to overheat. When they brought the car in our pressure test revealed leaking from the thermostat. Once we disassembled and inspected we discovered that the thermostat was installed improperly and the gasket rolled into the housing then was pinched by the actual thermostat. The client did not want to make another trip to the dealership and asked us to make the repair. Of course we repaired it correctly and also installed a new housing (which was original and made of plastic) to prevent another issue from developing in this area of the cooling system. This is a prime example of why it is important to have your car serviced by people who care about you, not just your wallet and who take pride in performing the highest quality repair possible so once we fix it, you don't have to worry.

Ozone's Effectiveness in Killing SARS Coronavirus Leads to Theory on COVID-19

Greetings valued friends!

We are here for you as a business and as people who care about those whom we are blessed to serve. As a business that federal and local governments have classified as essential services we stand ready to assist you with your vehicles' needs. In response to customers’ concerns regarding the current situation with the COVID-19 outbreak we are now offering expanded pick-up and drop-off services along with a Vehicle Sanitizing service!

For our clients who are practicing social distancing or have self-quarantined to minimize everyone’s chance of infection, we say thank you! At Bavarian Motor Cars, safety has always been our top priority. We are working hard to minimize the risks and disruptions we are all facing. To aid you in your desire to reduce exposure and stay safe we now offer an alternative when it comes to maintaining and servicing your vehicle to keep it safe, reliable and always ready for all your driving needs. Our pick-up/drop-off service offers greatly minimized risk as it eliminates all close person to person contact normally associated with having your vehicle serviced. Additionally, we protect your vehicle by sanitizing your key both on the pick-up and drop-off portion of this service. While in the workshop your vehicle's steering wheel is protected with a one-time use plastic cover following sanitizing. Our service professionals wear gloves, whenever there is a need for them to be inside your vehicle, for their safety as well as yours. All repairs or service work performed inside your vehicle that involves removal or replacement of parts will include sanitizing of all removed or replaced parts, as applicable, upon completion of work. We greatly enjoy seeing you in person and catching up with you, and we cannot wait until this is just a memory for us all.

Our new Vehicle Sanitizing service incorporates the use of our ozone generators to eliminate viruses, bacteria, mold, mildew and fungus from your vehicle. This service can be performed on any of our customers’ vehicles, not just BMW, Mini or Mercedes! Ozone is a powerful, naturally occurring gas that has been known for decades as one of the most effective disinfectants available and is effective in the air, on hard surfaces and on soft surfaces! You can find more information about ozone in the linked article.

Thank you for allowing us to earn your trust over the years! Please call if you have any questions or if there is anything we can do to help.

-Your Bavarian Motor Cars Family

Since ozone has been proven to kill 99.999 percent of pathogens in the air, including SARS Coronavirus and influenzas such as H5N1, researchers anticipate that it may be an important tool in preventing the spread of the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19).

Good morning Bavarian Motor Cars clients!

The world sure has continued to change over the past week. COVID-19 cases are up and the markets are down. Business travel and vacations have been postponed or cancelled. There are no sports to watch on TV, no shows on Broadway, Mickey is getting some time off, and closer to home, most local schools are closed.

What has not changed is Bavarian Motor Cars commitment to excellence!

We are committed to your safety and to preventing your exposure to any air or contact borne bacteria and viruses. Taking the recent WHO, federal and state government recommendations into consideration we have implemented steps to ensure your health and safety when you and your vehicle visit for service. We have for many years kept hand sanitizer present on our front counter for your use. We have implemented the use of plastic steering wheel covers. We have begun sanitizing all contact points such as restrooms, phones, keyboards, tablets, door handles, water fountains, hand-held equipment and seating areas throughout the day. Additionally, we are deep cleaning the entire office area every evening with our industrial grade ozone generator. Our loaner vehicles are also treated with ozone every time they return to us before departing with you to ensure you are not being exposed to any bacteria, viruses, mold or malodors. We feel the ozone generator is a phenomenal cleaning tool as it uses electricity to generate ozone gas (03) which has long been known as an effective virucide, biocide, anti-microbial and deodorizer. It eliminates all of these foreign pathogens in the air and on all hard surfaces. This is the same equipment that we use to remove malodors from A/C systems. We believe that the recent COVID-19 threat has brought about the need to further utilize this equipment to aid in protecting the health of our customers and the Bavarian Motor Cars team members.

All team members have always been encouraged to stay home if they are not feeling well, especially if they have any cold or flu-like symptoms.

We realize you depend on your vehicles to get you to your destinations safely which is why we are also concerned about the health, safety and well-being of your vehicle as well. We have contacted our major parts, equipment and fluids suppliers to ensure continued service to you with minimized disruptions due to parts and supplies issues. This will be continually monitored by the Bavarian Motor Cars team to ensure our promises to you are kept. We are in the business of helping others. Repairing your vehicle is what we do but YOU are why we do it!

If you would like to social distance we are able to accommodate via our Vehicle After-hour Drop-off and Pick-up service where you are able to drop your key through our Key Drop cabinet under the awning on the left of the building to leave your car for service and pick the key up after service in the same cabinet.

In closing, let's all take a deep breath, pause for a moment to appreciate life and be thankful for what we have. We encourage all to be mindful of others during these uncertain times and to strive to stay clear minded, level-headed and not act in ways that add to the panic as we all work through this global event together!

Sincerely,

Your friends at Bavarian Motor Cars

This fuel filter came out of an R53 Mini Cooper S with over 200,000 miles on the odometer. Pretty obvious which is the new filter and which is the old one. Just goes to show you how nasty fuel can be and why we recommend replacing any serviceable fuel filters every 60,000 miles.

We have seen some pretty strange things in our 14 years but this is definitely near the top. Customer stated that water was leaking inside the car near the pedals. We previously repaired a torn driver front vapor barrier so rechecked using our ultrasonic leak detection equipment which revealed no leaks. Inspection of the sunroof drain revealed the driver front drain was clogged. We discovered the source of the blockage to be a live 9mm round! Well....shoot!

A customer's 2009 328xi came in with an intermittent no start concern but the car would start if jump started. We discovered multiple battery drain faults stored in the power management system. We can't stress the importance of knowledge of the system and starting with the basics. After fixing the root cause, we monitored over-night with our awesome equipment that measures down to 1/10,000 of an amp or volt! It also takes a data log that we can then chart (data sampled every 10 seconds over about 12 hours). After reviewing our chart, you can clearly see that there is no drain present any longer! What was the fix you might ask? A failing battery!

A new customer brought their Mini to us for service. We are honored to be the first independent to service the car. The car has just over 40,000 miles on it. Much to our disgust, the engine air filter appeared to have just over 40,000 miles on it as well. Don't worry, it has a new filter now!

We have seen, first-hand, the results for over a decade and are convinced that LiquiMoly is at the pinnacle of quality when it comes to lubricants and additives. This M5 is happy now after being filled with Germany's finest! He also received a limited edition LiquiMoly spare oil bag and a quart to keep in the car, just in case, courtesy of LiquiMoly! A big thank you to Gary Driver, Stefan Braun and Bill White of LIQUI MOLY USA Inc. for your support, knowledge and supply of our favorite lubricants! With so much at stake, don't settle for less, demand the best for your BMW or Mini!

Classic BMW's are pretty rare, especially the touring models. This is a 1974 2000tii which was the last unit produced in 1973. The next vehicle on the production line was a 2002tii. We suspect that BMW ran out of 2000tii badges so they badged this car as a 2002tii when it is in fact a 2000tii. We diagnosed a crank no-start concern, repairs some vacuum leaks and installed new engine air filters. The car is going for complete restoration sometime next year. We thought it was too beautiful to not share and hope you enjoy!

We thought you might enjoy these images from a recent engine repair we performed on a R56 Cooper S. It was consuming excessive amounts of engine oil. We discovered that the valve stem seals had failed due to severely worn exhaust guides. Also, the pistons rings were worn and the cylinder walls all had wear present at the top of the piston stroke. We replaced the worn valve guides, performed a 3 angle valve job, installed new valve stem seals, honed all the cylinders, installed new piston rings and of course, cleaned everything in our heated ultrasonic cleaner - including the cylinder head. We have the equipment required to replace valve guides, perform 3 angle valve jobs, re-face valves and check valve stem run-out in house which saves time, money and allows us direct control over the quality of the repairs. If you have any questions or think you may need this repair performed on your Mini, you can contact us a 678.205.2550 or [email protected]. Thanks for looking!
