N54 Walnut Shell Blasting - Valve & Intake Port Cleaning Group Buy!



Update:
We have exceeded the 9+ car mark already in under 24 hours of the group buy being open. The price per car is currently at $320. We will leave the group buy open for a while longer to give everyone the chance to join. At that point I will send out PM's to everyone requesting payment and we will start to schedule appointments.




Hey everyone in the tri-state and surrounding areas. We here at AKMotorwerk are proud to present the N54 Walnut Shell Valve cleaning service as a group buy. As most of you are aware by now, direct injection vehicles like the N54 engines, have this issue with carbon buildup on the valves and intake ports. It causes idle issues and takes away power that most of us here are trying to get more of... not less. Vehicles with 25-30k+ miles on them would benifit greatly by having this service done. BMW dealers are not performing this under maintenence or warranty. They are chargeing customers $700-$800!!

We want to help out the N54 community and perform this for you at a more reasonable and cost effective price. Obviously the more people in the group buy, the lower everyone's cost will be. The pricing is a follows:

1-4 cars = $420.

5-8 cars = $370.

9 + cars = $320.


We will let the group buy run for a few weeks. At that point we will close the group buy and have the final price per car. Payment will be required at that time and we will start to schedule customers to start coming in to have the work performed. If there is someone that needs the Walnut blasting valve cleaning done asap, they can opt to have it done and not be in the group buy. Our intro price is $475.

Let's get this Group Buy list going! We have done a few large group buys throughout the years (OSS headlights & Coding) with zero issues. So don't hesitate to sign up for this one too... your car will thank you and you can save over 50% what the dealer will try to charge you!
As always, if you have any questions, please email me Alex@AKMotorwerk.com or shoot PM me.

I'm getting my car back from service tomorrow. I had misfires with my JB4 installed but they couldn't replicate it without it so they replaced the spark plugs in good faith but wouldn't do injectors or coil packs. Can the valves be causing the misfires also? I have 48k miles on the car so i think they'll be pretty bad... If so and my wheels sell i'm gonna do this through you guys

Alignment might be out of whack?? Hopefully nothing more than that, those Cross Bx potholes are craters.

Between the potholes & the occupy protesters, you might be better off buying one of these to go into NYC

Good point.... Between plates, registering it + then trying to park it, prob be a big headache. What about this red one? Kinda "blends" in a little more...

Ok so I had my valves cleaned tonight.n thanks to Alex and Kevin who had me out if there in 3 hrs. Great work. Car is running a lot smoother, with much improved throttle response...it even sounds better. If you have >30k miles on your car...get this done...it's worth it! My car has 48k mi and was overdue!
