I called Ivo@Columbus Auto as FarBMW and ChickenFriedRice recommended (THANKS guys!!), nice easy guy to talk to. He explained the process to me. Which include disassemble; scrubbing the valves with tooth brush; spraying solutions on the valve; grit blast(if there are build up left over); reassemble.
hopefully i didn't forget too many steps he told me. The point is, he is going to do a complete job on the valve and intake port cleaning.

(Hey guys,

As my car approached its 100k km. I wanna get its Valves and the intake port cleaned because of the carbon build up. I believe the throttle response and fuel consumption of the car can benefit quite a lot from this.

So, Walnut Shell Blasting is what most members did for their Valve & Intake Port Cleaning.

My questions are:

Has anyone done this in the GTA area?
if so
Where did u get it done?
How much did it cost?
Is anyone else looking to get this done anytime soon?

Any help would be appreciated.
