White 335i off of Coit and PGBT at Central Market in Richardson....license plate stood out as being MYN54 so figured it was probably a forum member Car looks slick! Way better than mine considering the central market aerial petting zoo had sh*t on mine while I was getting groceries!

blasted!

I wanted to post an update after having my intake valves walnut shell blasted. I contacted Ultimate Bimmer Service to set up an appointment ~3 weeks ago to have my intake valves cleaned along with a couple other maintenance items.

Unfortunately, UBS contacted me the night before my scheduled appointment to let me know they wouldn't be able to get to my car the following day.

I went ahead and sent a PM to sammy_0559 that night, and he told me he'd do mine on Saturday morning at a considerably cheaper price. I would guess that Sammy has done as many of these cleanings on an N54 as anyone in the metroplex by now. No brainer.

He had the complete job done in under 4 hours, and he even replaced some of my vacuum line that had become visibly worn at no additional charge.

Here are some of my before and after shots at 69k miles:









As others have mentioned, I noticed a much smoother feel under hard acceleration and improved throttle response. The car feels like it's pulling stronger in general.

Sunday morning I did an autocross with the local Porsche club, and I felt much better low end torque as I was coming out of corners. Also, I had zero misfires or issues (I have had a misfire at each of my last two autocrosses). The car ran very strong all day.

I would recommend this service to everyone, and here in DFW, I would recommend sammy_0559. Thanks again, Sammy!

I chased down a Snap-On tool truck. But it was also a $35.00 socket.
