Back on the Blog!

We're back! We hope that you enjoyed a fantastic holiday season and that the New Year has been superb so far! It's been awhile since our last blog post, and we thank you for hanging tight! We've added a new addition to our family, another sweet boy, Emerson Ray, who's already 2 months old! And his older brother Remington has anything to do with it, he'll love cars just as much! I visited the shop for the first time since early December to see what the guys were up to. And I was in for a treat to photograph, as you'll see below! We've added a new technician, Steven, to our team, and we are excited to have him! He's a VW specialist who came to us from a local VW dealer! Let's get started! This zinoberrot e30, a 1987 BMW 325i cabrio, came in for a new brake proportioning valve, new brake hard line and brake hoses, new fuel lines, and new front brake pads, rotors, and wear sensor. 2016-02-25_00022016-02-25_00032016-02-25_0004 Next up, a 2005 BMW 645Ci in titansilber metallic. She's in for an oil service, new alternator, and resealing of her upper timing covers. 2016-02-25_00052016-02-25_00062016-02-25_00072016-02-25_00082016-02-25_00092016-02-25_0015 Diagnostics were needed for this 2004 Audi A8 L Quattro. She had starting issues...meaning she didn't want to start. We'll get to the bottom of it!     2016-02-25_0011 Water pump, new drive belt, tensioner, and idler pulley were on the list for this 2002 Mercedes C320: 2016-02-25_0012   Suspension repairs due to an accident were in order for this cabrio, a 1989 325i. She also got a new rear trailing arm, new front right tie rod, and an alignment. 2016-02-25_0014 And what a treat it was to photograph this fjord blue historic beauty! She's a 1972 BMW 3.0Csi with poor idle and running issues. In addition to a post-purchase inspection, she needed a new thermostat, lighting repairs, a compression test, valve adjustment, a new coolant temp sensor, new spark plugs, and a new air control valve - all the way from Europe! 2016-02-25_00162016-02-25_00172016-02-25_00192016-02-25_00202016-02-25_00212016-02-25_00222016-02-25_00232016-02-25_00242016-02-25_00252016-02-25_00262016-02-25_00272016-02-25_00282016-02-25_00292016-02-25_00302016-02-25_0031   Thanks again for your patience as we've been on a blogging hiatus!
