Wow! Is it really Friday already?! As they say, time flies when you’re having fun! We’ve got another short and sweet post to kick off your weekend right!
Are you in need of summer tires for your ride? Give Nick a call at 317.773.0074 to ask about our current tire promotions as well as our off season tire storage options! We are an official Tire Rack dealer, and can have your tires and wheels shipped right to us to make it as convenient for you as possible. Speaking of tires, take a look at these special order tires and wheels ready to be installed on customers’ cars!
This newly upholstered interior will be installed into an e30 coupe, just in time to make the trip to the Vintage in North Carolina! Are you looking for an impromptu Memorial Day weekend trip? How about joining our caravan to the Vintage! For more information about the event, check out there website!
If you are planning a road trip this summer, have you scheduled your pre-trip inspection? To do so, call Nick to make your appointment today! This 1998 BMW 323i in hellrot did just that and will be heading to North Carolina next week! She had a check engine light that needed to be diagnosed. A new secondary air pump and convertible top boot motor were also on the list.
Oil leaks were addressed for this sweet 1992 BMW 325i cabrio:
The M Technic front valance for this sweet 1992 325i cabrio had been previously painted a few times. Unfortunately, the paint had cracked and started popping off. Reggie used aircraft stripper to remove all of the old paint to get down to the source of the problem. She’ll be properly repainted and reinstalled.
You may recall a little sneak peek a few weeks back. This is no ordinary e30 cabrio in Alpinweiss II. She’s an S52 swap with M-Technic Appearance Package! She was brought to us all the way from Wisconsin, along with her M3 sister!
While she’s here at the shop, we’ll be repairing window seals, as the doors don’t close properly. Exterior weatherstriping will also be replaced. We’ll also diagnose the following issues: right rear speaker, headlight performance, convertible top boot issues, convertible top operation, differential leak, exhaust noise, flywheel issues – which means the transmission will need to be pulled, and an interior rattle, to name a few.
And a special note: Monday is Reggie’s birthday! Reggie, wishing you a fabulous birthday! So proud of all you do! You are a perfect example of hard work, passion, and love for life for our son! We love you so much!
Happy Friday, fellow enthusiasts! Although it’s a misty, cloudy day here in Noblesville, Indiana, it’s not putting a damper on the excitement buzzing around the shop these days! We have been keeping busy, yes, that is a fact. But we’ve also got some exciting things in store…so be sure to stay tuned! Plus, the month of May is always fun! May includes our annual adventure to North Carolina for the Vintage, preparing for our annual Open House (Mark your calendars for Saturday, June 15th!), and celebrating Reggie’s birthday!

This week’s post will be short and sweet! So let’s get down to business! This 1992 brillantrot 325i cabrio came in with starting issues. She had difficulty starting, needed 3 or 4 rounds of cranking, and seemed to be starved for fuel:
This alpinweiss beauty, a 2007 BMW X3 3.0i, came in for a drain and fill of the cooling system with Genuine BMW coolant, as well as an inspection:
Are you lookin’ at me?! Ok, ok, so any type of accent doesn’t really register via internet, so I’ll just stick to the topic at hand! This 2006 Mini Cooper S John Cooper Works came in with excessive engine noise. I had to ask what John Cooper Works was all about, which means higher performance yet than the Cooper S. Cool!
It never fails. Every time this pretty hennarot ’88 e30 M3 is at the shop, someone inquires if she’s for sale! Can you blame them?! She came in for new spark plugs, an oil change, a left rear tire with a slow leak, and to diagnose a minor “hop” at speed:
New rear brake pads and rotors, brake hoses, a brake fluid flush, and A/C belt tensioner were on the list for this 1998 BMW 528i:
A bit more work was done on the 1969 Camara, namely replacement of whining rear gears in favor of a new 3.73 ring and pinion:
First up, we have this 1999 BMW M Coupe in arktissilber metallic. She came in for diagnosis and repair of the cooling system, a new temp switch, auxiliary fan switch, drive belt, water pump and water pump pulley.
I just love this beautiful 1991 BMW 325i cabrio! She came in for a new timing belt, along with some other routine maintenance, including a water pump, thermostat, belts, hoses, and oil change.
A new oil filter housing gasket was on the list for this e36 M3. She also got a new VANOS oil line, breather hose, oil change, blower motor resistor, and summer tires.
This 2003 Audi A6 Quattro came in for diagnosis of a coolant leak and overheating issue, along with a check engine light. The front suspension and front wheels were also inspected. New tires and our road force balancing and mounting service completed the job.
Work continues on the 2002 project! As a 1600, this bimmer only had one brake line on each side, and 2 are needed as a 2002. Note: There will be rubber grommets covering the holes. Reggie also fabricated the bracket that holds the brake lines.
The rear brake line on the 1600 ran into the pedal box. For this project, Reggie will be running a new line from front to back. For now, he simply added an extension since the engine will be broken down for paint, etc.
Reggie uses his new favorite tool – the bubble flare – to make the brake lines:
This 1996 BMW 328is came in with a broken steering column lock:
