Unfortunately, I do not do clutch installs, engine swaps, or transmission swaps. My apologies. I can refer you to a few local shops that I have good relationships with that can help you though. Let me know.

How was the install of the 7" FMIC on the 5'er?

How bad, hard was it really?

It took a lot of cutting and removal of parts. Also it was necessary to relocate the Transmission cooler. To be honest, it wasn't particularly easy or hard. Just time consuming. If you have any questions feel free to reach out to me. :)

Major props to Rob for fixing my problems today. We took care of a boost leak issue and adjusted my ********* from rubbing. My elbow had a small hole in it and there was also a leak at the meth bung. The ********* were improperly installed by BMW when they replaced my turbos. Yes the replaced them with all my mods on but unfortunately they messed up on my *********. At least I got new turbos.

Rob is very knowledgeable and I would take my car to him again. He definitely goes above and beyond to make sure you are happy with his service. Thanks again Rob!

Thank you for the kinds words nguyenvn it means a lot! :) It was a pleasure working on your car. In addition, I appreciated the helping hand throughout the day while we worked on everything. I look forward to seeing future logs and hope you are much happier with how the car performs now. :burnrubber:

Time to install a N55 DP so back to work!

I would personally like to thank Rob for his great work. He did an Intake Valve Cleaning. He is very knowledgeable and super professional, not to mention very honest and humble. The customer service that he provided was way better than what I would get at a dealership or any high end performance shop. He went beyond my expectation trying to troubleshoot my problems. You can’t get customer service like that anywhere else. If you need any kind of work done, I would highly recommend giving Rob a call.

1. Car warms up super-quick.
2. No more rough idles (mostly noticed in cold weather).
3. Acceleration is extremely linear and responsive.
4. Turbo lag has significantly decreased.
5. Engine noise has decreased.

If you need any kind of work done, I would highly recommend giving Rob a call.

pnguyen951 09-23-2014 04:46 PM

Had walnut blasting, AFE intake installed, & jb4 installed. Rob did an exceptional job. He explained and showed me what he was doing as he was doing it. He is very knowledgeable.

As a newbie to bmw's, can be intimidating to go to dealerships and independant bmw shops for service, but Rob was really nice and easy to talk to.

Thanks Rob for the great work you did on my car. Will be back for future services.

-Oil Filter Housing Gaskets
-Replacement of Vacuum Lines
-Coolant Flushes

-Other Services as well

Not to mention countless installs of mods for the cars as well including:

-Burger Motorsports JB4
-Down *****
-Intakes
-Intercoolers
-Chargepipe / BOVs
-Low Pressure Fuel Pumps
-Exhausts, etc.

If anyone has any questions feel free to reach out to me and here are some pictures in the mean time to enjoy :)

Rob's the man! He walnut blasted, changed the oil housing gasket along with oil and coolant and cleaned vanos solenoids in one day! My car runs like brand new and was able to turn my JB+ 100% with no more P0015 errors. He's a pro and will be returning to him for future maintenance.

I had Rob squeeze a giant 7" VRSF fmic into my e61 for me a while back. He did an amazing job! He took his time and made sure everything fit perfectly. The intercooler is still working flawlessly :)

Thanks Rob!
