Featuring The A-MMMazing Dinan X5M!

It’s Friday, and we’re back again this week with another edition of the latest happenings around the shop!  BMW celebrated a birthday this week, and, in honor of their special day, we shared this cool article: In Photos: 100 Years of BMW Cars, Motorcycles, Planes.  If you follow along on our Facebook page, you may have seen that link, as well as the fact that we’ve had the pleasure of servicing several Mini Coopers here this week!

Let’s jump right in with one of them now!  This chili red 2006 Mini Cooper came in for an oil service, for an inspection for possible oil leaks, for new front lower control arm bushings, and for an alignment.

Did you know that we are a Dinan dealer?  We had this sweet monte carlo blau metallic X5M.  She was here for the Dinan S1 Signature Package, which includes performance tuning, an awesome exhaust, suspension upgrades, and pedal covers.  The Dinan badge was custom painted to match the new Dinan exhaust tips!

Next we have this 2006 Audi A6 Quattro that was experiencing a parking brake malfunction, as well as shifting issues.  After a new ABS control unit and a new genuine Audi transmissions, she’s back in business.

Last week I mentioned that our newest family member Emerson is already 2 months old! He came to the shop with me this week while I photographed some cars.  Here’s a quick photo of him enjoying some time in the shop!
