Happy Friday! We are back with some of the latest happenings around the shop here at Reggie’s Motorworks! Before we get into details, we have a few items of business. We recently lost our newest technician. He left due to personal reasons, and we wish him all the best moving forward. There are no hard feelings on our end. That being said, we are looking for a technician. Check out our employment opportunities here. If you know of someone who would make a great fit to our team, please feel free to share this with them!

So what’s with this week’s blog post title? Great question! All of this week’s featured bimmers share a 5 in common! Ok, so maybe that’s a stretch as far as a title, but let’s just go with it!
First up, a 2007 BMW 335i. She came to us thinking that she’d need a new battery. However, we found that the battery was just low and needed a good recharging:
Next, this 2000 BMW X5 4.4i came in with an inoperable driver’s door handle. It was removed, replaced, and painted to match the rest of the vehicle.
You may have seen an update on Facebook that Reggie got a new camera! He’s shared some photos for the blog! After all, I’m not there to capture every car that comes through our doors, so this is greatly appreciated! A post-purchase inspection was in order for this sleek and sweet 2006 BMW M5:
An oil change and a brake fluid flush were on the list for this sharp M 235i! Thanks again to Reggie for photographing this cool car! She’s only got 1200 miles on the clock!
Non-starting issues brought this sparkling graphite 2007 BMW 335i to the shop. She also got a new front left door lock actuator, a new starter assembly, and cleaned intake valves by way of walnut blasting! Yes, that’s right! Walnut blasting! Reggie and I both took photos of John working on this project.
Here’s a look at all of the buildup that had accumulated inside the intake valves:
Who knew that this healthy little nut could pack so much punch when it comes to cleaning intake valves?!
Ahhh! So clean and shiny again!
That’s all the time we have today! We’ll be back with more again next week!
