carbon blasting in Charlotte?

I'd like to get my carbon blasted in the next year, any place in Charlotte, NC recommended for it?
2009 w/ 45k miles, so it's not urgent but getting to be time.

Im at 50k and would like to get mine done in the next 10k as well. We should try to get a group and get a discount price on it!

Cool, I think euro wise is getting a carbon cleaner very soon, and i will talk to the owner and see what we can arrange and see if he can give us special pricing if we get 5 to commit.

Mike, owner of Eurowise, said they would be willing to do walnut blasting for $450 if we can get 5 people to commit. I just talked to performance BMW in Chapel Hill and they quoted ~$600 so this is a nice savings! Lets get 2 others in the area to commit and make this happen within the next few months.

cool - I'm up for it, and eurowise already does the work on my ride (being 5 minutes away), so that's perfect.

Cleans your intake valves with all the carbon that is built up in these cars. Most people do it 50-60k or so. It seems like we have enough people.

Since a lot of holidays are coming up soon would you guys rather try to plan something like this before Thanksgiving holidays or after the new year like the second week of January.

I have seen some other threads where they got a group buy at $400. I am still in at $450 but maybe they will go a little lower?

I already talked to Eurowise and we are going to go ahead and do it in January. I will update you guys in a few weeks with exact details. Most likely we will break up over a course of a weekend. I will have exact details soon guys!

Hey, 135 N54 here, I'd be down with that.

Was going to get the stuff to do it myself, but I live in an apartment and its not really feasible to store all the tools lol.

there is another thread for the Performance BMW of Chapel Hill which is closer to you and offers a better price then Eurowise. We are doing the group buy there now.

I saw that post before but can't find it anymore for the life of me. Where did it go?
