Hey Alex or kevin
My car is currently at the dealership getting my water pump replaced and I told them when they change the water pump that you should change the thermostat as well but the advisor said there's no fault codes for the thermostat so they won't be replacing it...

Another thing a tech found that one of oil line going to the turbo is leaking and needs to be fixed.. They said it will cost $1,800 to replace one line?!!????? they said its a pita part to get to do its a 12 hour labor charge.....

Can you guys do it cheaper ????

FYI: Be nice to the bees in the shop - I literally got stung by one but Alex' insurance took care of it for me.. anyhow, what a random occurrence - must be the first time anyone got stung by a bee servicing their car..
again, these guys are great and would go back to them when I'm ready for them downpipes and waterpump

Guys at akm are AWESOME

I came in today w/ a half malfunction light to the shop (so car was running terrible for a week til i got in), turns out my charge pipe blew off and was actually cracked, and the pin in my tmap sensor was bent.

Luckily they had an oem charge pipe laying around that fit my car perfectly (gave me an awesome price on it) and I was in and out in 40minutes.

Could not have imagined a better experience.

Awsome guys at AK Motorwerk. I was there last week to have my rear fenders rolled. THey had me in and out in a very short period of time and gave me a great price. Along with being two funny, easy going guys, Alex and Kevin know their BMWs. By the way Alex, I ordered my tires for the wheels I was telling you about. I ended up going with the 265/30/19 rears instead of the 245/35/19 rears we discussed. I figured Id give it a try because the fatter tire just looks a whole lot better in my opinion. Im hoping the fender roll you did allows the 265 to have room. I hope I didnt make a bad decision. LOL. You think the 265/30/19 rears should fit? LOL Im hoping.

Thanks for the kind words John. We try to be very easy going and laid back. I think the 265's will be fine and look great!
