AZ (Phoenix) Walnut Blasting Experience/Review

I know in the past a few of us AZ guys were looking for someone that does walnut blasting outside of the ridiculous dealer rate ($1000+). I spoke with a buddy of mine who's a certified BMW master technician and he put together a kit to do it on the side.

My car has 45k miles on it and has been tuned since 8k. This is not a 'freeway' car and gets driven pretty hard. I would not of expected the amount of carbon build up this car had.

I dropped my car off at his house and in a few hours this was the work that was done...

Before:














During/After:










When I picked the car back up I *immediately* noticed that the idle is very smooth where as before I had hiccups and worried me that it was something more serious. Throttle response is also night and day difference than it was before. When going WOT the car is much snappier and wants to go!

Here's another review I found just now from someone else that had it done.
http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=682116

He's open to continuing to do this on the side and it's less than half of the dealership cost. If you'd like more information PM me and I will give you his contact information.

I can't answer the price question (nor can I send you a PM due to your low post count) but it's much cheaper than the dealer/shop. It should definitely be ready same day - he had mine back in a few hours.
