Welcome to the blog! We hope that you enjoyed a wonderful holiday with family and friends! Cheers to a bright and Happy New Year!
If you follow Reggie’s Motorworks on Facebook, you may have seen the exciting news! We're excited to have Dinan Engineering back in the Mini Cooper performance business! They recently released the Sport Performance Tuner (for 2014 and newer) that adds up to 30 HP & 40 lb-ft of torque. And now they offer their incredible Free Flow Stainless Exhaust!

In for diagnosis of run-ability issues, this carbon scwarz metallic 2005 BMW M3, was found to have broken tabs on the exhaust cam shaft VANOS gear and a damaged VANOS oil pump disc. While she’s in the shop, she’ll receive a valve adjustment, a rebuilt VANOS, new VANOS bolts, and a new drive belt tensioner and belts. Then she’ll be ready to get back on the road!
Here is a close-up view of the broken tab:
In addition to seeing the broken tabs, you can see below how the small hole on the left was damaged, in comparison with the hole on the right:
Next, a bi-annual service was on the list for the 2004 Mercedes C230 Kompressor:
We’ll wrap up this week’s post with this sweet 6-series cabrio! She’s a titansilber metallic 2005 BMW 645Ci. She had a transmission service with new filter assembly and fluid, as well as a new control harness connector. Oil leaks were repaired at the upper timing cover gaskets. She got a new brake booster vacuum pump gasket and new cabin air filters.
Thank you for joining us! From the team here at Reggie’s Motorworks, we would like to wish you a Happy New Year!
