Need additional tech help? Please visit our tech blog for thousands of Tech and DIY BMW and MINI articles at: http://blog.bavauto.com/ --- Installing a performance free-flow muffler or Exhaust system on your BMW or MINI is a task that most DIYers should be able to complete in a couple hours to half a day. Most systems are a direct bolt-on to replace the original parts or a simple cut-in, where the pipe is cut and the new system slips over the cut end of the pipe. The new systems hang from the original mounting points and center into the rear valance opening in the same manner as the original systems. Since the installation of a full bolt-on system is as straight forward as simply removing the old system and installing the new system in exactly the same manner, in this DIY we will show you a typical cut-in system installation. The only specialized tool that you will need is a pipe cutter, such as the one that we offer. Follow along as we install a Scorpion Free-Flow muffler set on a 2007 335i. Then, listen to the before and after sound clips. Of the 100% stainless steel systems that we offer, the Scorpion system is our quietest Free-Flow system (on most models). For a bit more "European" sound, choose the Remus systems. For those who wish to have the most aggressive Exhaust sounds (and performance), we suggest the MagnaFlow and the Billy-Boat systems. Remember, all of these systems are 100% stainless steel. PARTS USED: • Scorpion Free-Flow Mufflers for BMW 335i • Wurth Exhaust Assembly Paste • New rubber Exhaust hangers, as needed. TOOLS USED: • MechanicAll penetrant and lubricant spray • Exhaust tubing cutter • SafeGrip Gloves • 10mm through 15mm 3/8" drive socket and ratchet set with various extensions • 10mm through 15mm combination wrench set • Assorted flat-blade screwdrivers and pry-bars. PROCEDURE: NOTE: We suggest that you work with a helper to support the muffler assemblies during set-up and installation. 1) Safely and properly raise the rear of the vehicle. Drive-on ramps can be used for this procedure, as well as a floor-jack and jack-stands. NOTE: This DIY is performed on an E90 (06-12) 335i model. This model has two separate mufflers with two inlet pipes and a cross-over pipe between the mufflers. In order to lower these units, mark and cut both inlet pipes and lower as a complete unit. On this vehicle, we separated the two mufflers at the cross-over pipe due to our performing a live DIY for an audience and then a second DIY for our video. In separating the mufflers, we could perform these two full DIYs on one car. 2) Raise and support the new muffler assembly, below the original muffler. Align the hanging points with the original hanging points. Mark the Exhaust pipe in a location that will allow the original piping to be inserted into the new muffler's piping by about 2". Remember, it is better to have to cut a second time to shorten the pipe, rather than be too short on the first cut. 3) Position the pipe cutter around the pipe, at the marked location. Tighten the tool and roll the tool as far clockwise and counter-clockwise as clearance allows. Keep working the tool until the pipe is cut (similar to cutting copper plumbing pipe with a tubing cutter). 4) Support the muffler and disconnect the forward and rear hangers. Unbolt the forward hanger bracket from the chassis. Unbolt the rear hanger from the muffler. 5) Lower the original muffler. 6) Note that the new Muffler has welded on hanger pins for both the front and the rear hangers. 7) We're sorry, but the description can not be any longer (youtube requirement). Watch the video and see our tech blog for the full DIY steps at http://blog.bavauto.com/ NOTE: For this vehicle, and others with separate left and right mufflers, install and align both mufflers at the same time. Do not fully tighten the clamps until you are satisfied that both sides are hanging symmetrically. -------- All products noted in this video can be purchased in our online store, http://www.bavauto.com/, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Part 1: Installing shocks, struts and springs on a BMW 3 series 99 thru 05 (E46)

Need additional tech help? Please visit our tech blog for thousands of Tech and DIY BMW and MINI articles at: http://blog.bavauto.com/ --- In Part-1 of this two part series, we will replace the front shock/strut/spring assembly. See Part-2 for the rear shock and spring replacement. The Bentley repair manuals will cover standard shock and spring replacement for the various BMW and MINI models. This DIY will assume that the DIYer has the applicable Bentley manual for additional reference as well as fastener torque values. Note that we will be installing the Bilstein PSS-10 coil-over kit. However, the procedures would be the same for any common shock/strut replacement (including installing sport springs, if desired). PARTS USED: • New shocks/struts (Bilstein, Koni, Sachs, etc.) • New sport or stock replacement springs, if desired (BMW, BavAuto, Eibach, etc.) • New Shock install kits (compression bumpers, dust shields, spring pads, etc.) • New upper strut and shock mounts • New strut & shock mount gaskets (as required) • Rear shock mount reinforcing plates TOOLS USED: • Bentley Repair Manual • BavAuto Non-Marring pry bar set * BavAuto spring compressor tool • 13mm through 18mm ½"drive socket & ratchet set with various extensions • 4mm through 8mm Allen keys or bits (for ratchet use) • 13mm through 18mm combination wrench set • Assorted flat and Phillips screwdrivers PROCEDURE: FRONT (applies directly to the E46 3-series, but others are similar): 1) Safely raise the front of car, with suspension hanging. 2) Remove the wheels. 3) Disconnect the upper end of the swaybar link from the shock/strut bracket. Note that the through-stud for the link's upper joint (as well as the lower) must be secured using a 16mm to 18mm thin open end wrench. This particular link is 16mm. 4) Remove the strut mounting pinch-bolt. The bolt goes through the strut mounting clamp on the wheel hub/spindle assembly and has a nut on the opposite side (some models do not use nuts, the bolt threads into the clamp). 5) Set the mounting bracket for the ABS sensor wire, brake pad wear sensor wire (left side only) and brake fluid hose aside. Note that other models may have these hoses mounted in a bracket that is affixed to the shock/strut housing. In these cases, remove the wires and hose from the bracket. 6) If the vehicle has adaptive headlights (self-aiming), disconnect the sensor link from the control arm or the sensor bell-crank arm. The sensors may only be present on one side of the vehicle. 7) Place a support or jack under the lower control arm to support the suspension as the upper strut mount nuts are removed. 8) Remove the three 13mm nuts that secure the upper mount to the body (strut tower), under the hood. 9) Gently lower the jack or support, from step-6, and lower the strut assembly. Pull the strut assembly up and out of the hub/spindle. A helper may need to push down on the hub/spindle as you pull the strut upward. If the clamp is too tight for the strut to pull out, use a cold-chisel or large flat-blade screwdriver as a wedge to open the clamp a bit. Tap the wedge into the split in the clamp, widening the clamp, allowing the strut to be removed. 10) Once removed from the hub/spindle clamp, remove the strut assembly from the wheel well area. 11) Install a spring compressor to the spring on the strut assembly. Compress the spring until you can tell that the spring pressure is relieved from the upper and lower spring seats. 10) Remove the upper shock/strut nut that is at the top of the assembly, in the center of the upper mount. To remove the nut, you can use the method shown in the Spring 2007 issue of our Fast Times newsletter, page-7, or you can use an impact gun. DO NOT use an impact gun for re-assembly! 11) Once the nut is removed, disassemble the upper mount, upper spring perch and washers from the shock's piston rod. Keep track of the various washers and their locations. 12) Pull the spring (and compressor) off of the shock/strut. 13) Assemble the new shock/strut and/or spring. 14) We're sorry, but the description can not be any longer (youtube requirement).

Cleaning carbon from intake ports and valves on BMW and MINI turbo engines N54 N55

Need additional tech help? Please visit our tech blog for thousands of Tech and DIY BMW and MINI articles at: http://blog.bavauto.com/ --- This DIY (Do It Yourself) How To Video shows how to use a media blaster and walnut shell blasting media to clean the carbon (decarbon) from the intake ports and valves on the BMW and MINI turbocharged engines.. We will be performing this service on an N54 6-cylinder. The N55 will be similar. This applies to the 135i, 335i, 535i, X5 and similar models. NOTE: It is important to put the vehicle in "sleep mode" before beginning any work. This powers down all modules and computers, allowing the various sensors to be disconnected without generating faults in the systems. Perform this step as follows: 1) Place the vehicle in the position where it will be worked on. 2) Open the hood and the driver's window. Close all other windows, doors and trunk. 3) Turn off all systems and accessories and remove the key. 4) Move the key at least 20 feet away from the vehicle. 5) Apply parking brake and place transmission in NEUTRAL (manual transmission) or PARK (automatic transmission) 6) Wait 20 minutes. 7) Once the vehicle is in the sleep mode, do activate any electrical accessories or systems (besides bumping the starter, as shown), close the hood or open the doors, trunk or windows. With the introduction (in the US) of the N54 twin turbo 6-cylinder engines in the late 2000s (135i, 335i, 535i, X5), and now the N55 single turbo, N20 4-cylinder turbo and all the rest of the turbo and naturally aspirated "N" 4-clyinder, 6--cylinder and V8 engine family, we are seeing the effects of heavy carbon build-up in the intake ports and valves. BMW has even recognized this and has implemented a "de-carbon" program for many of these engines. The N54 and N55 3.5 twin and single turbo engines are the most susceptible to the heavy carboning (so far). BMW dealers will be happy to perform the de-carbon service for a fee of $600 to $800, and up. The de-carbon service involves removal of the intake manifold and blasting of the ports and valves with walnut shells, using a special fixture (plus a media blaster and a shop-vac). The de-carbon service is really not all that difficult, but does require some special tools, as noted above. Bavarian Autosport has developed a full Do It Yourself (DIY) program for the de-carbon service on the N54 twin turbo engines (more to come, just ask us if you have a different model). We will provide the special adapters, media blaster, walnut shell media, replacement gaskets and full video instruction. The media blaster kit is available for purchase or rental. Call our advisors at 800-535-2002 or visit our online store at www.bavauto.com for details.
