X5 DPF filter

X5 DPF filter

Today at beechmotorworks we had a 2010 BMW X5 diesel come in with a warning stating that the DPF filters needed to be replaced. Upon further diagnosis there is a preset service interval set by the manufacturer that can end up costing the client upwards of $10000.00 in parts alone and does not even allow the client to have the filters tested or serviced; the dealer themselves cannot override this warning. At beechmotorworks we have the technology to be able to service and/or clean these filters. We forgot to mention, these filters are built into the vehicles exhaust system.

Our German diagnostic partners were then able to write new software enabling us to regenerate the filter settings and give the client another 250000km on their existing filters without replacement.

Winter Driving & Beach Motorworks Interview on Dave's Corner Garage

Alan Beech talks with Dave of @Dave's Corner Garage about how to get your car ready for this winter driving season. Take 10 minutes and hear about the new technology we are using here at Beech Motorworks and how we are trying to make your experience at Beech Motorworks more transparent and educational.  The best part of the interview is when Alan shares his favorite myths about why people don't think they need winter tires. Hint: Everyone should put winter tires on their vehicle, even you SUV drivers! Have a happy and safe winter driving season, and if you haven't put your winter tires on yet, don't wait, we are already booking a week out, and we want to make sure we have room for you

Direct Injection Intake Valve Walnut Blasting Services

Direct Injection Intake Valve Walnut Blasting Services

Beech Motorworks is now offering Direct Injection Intake Valve Walnut Blasting Services. Direct Injection engines definitely come with advantages in fuel consumption as well as yielding more power when compared to engine with the identical displacement. The N54 engine of the BMW 435i, 335i and135i or any S model Mini Cooper Engine is a direct injection Engine; this means, fuel is injected directly into the combustion chamber of each cylinder and not in the intake. As a consequence, fuel does not run down the cylinder which would otherwise clean the valve; causing a build up of carbon deposits and not allowing the engine to intake enough air. Have a look at the valve before and after the Walnut Blasting Service on a BMW 135i
