VW Golf R – Service, Supersprint Exhaust Fit and Engine Tune

During a thorough inspection of the vehicle, it was found that the spark plugs needed to be replaced too.  Spark plugs are needed to ignite the compressed fuel/air mixture by an electric spark. Without this, the vehicles’ engine will start problematically, if at all.

Supersprint Exhausts are built and designed to insure additional power to enhance overall performance.

Cat-back refers to the portion of the exhaust system from the outlet of the catalytic converter to the final vent to open air. This generally includes the pipe from the converter to the muffler, the muffler, and the final length of pipe to open air.

Cat-back exhaust systems generally use larger diameter pipes than the stock system. The mufflers included in these kits are often glasspacks, to reduce back pressure.

It was a pleasure to work on this sleek Golf R32; our technician worked hard to ensure the end result was an absolute triumph.

BMW M3 – Engine Light

The owner of a BMW M3 booked a visit to our workshop to check on an engine light issue.

To understand why faults occur on a vehicle, our experienced mechanics use a scanner to check for any stored faults. This allows the mechanics to understand the issues with the vehicle and take proper course of actions. With this particular M3, 3 faults were identified: catalytic converter 1, catalytic converter 2 and left brake light. The inspection also suggested the exhaust be examined.

Our mechanic found that to clear and repair the catalytic converter faults, the oxygen sensor would need to be spaced further out from the exhaust and the ECU would require reprogramming.

At pickup, the proud owner of this BMW M3 was pleased with the result and happy to have the car back in top condition.

This BMW was fitted at our workshop with a Remus rear muffler and twin tips. Remus is a highly regards sports exhaust manufacturer which creates high performance on the car and provides that racing sound and made with 100% stainless steel.

The car was also fitted with an AFE intake system. The AFE kit is an Air Filter system, this system is a performance upgrade. This upgrade entails the mechanics to install an Air filter/intake system which maximises the flow of the intake system so that the car makes more power and can therefore get a better throttle response.

Also the light bulb in the headlight was blown so at the customer’s request, this was replaced.
