The service was done according to the log book schedule and current km on the vehicle. This included replacing the oil along with filters and other liquids and lubricants as needed. As a special bonus to our customer we included an engine detox and intake cleaner for the vehicle to help and maintain healthy engine life for the long term.

Also carried out in this service, the brake system fluid was flushed at each of the wheels. This is done as per manufacturer’s specifications, every two years. All other fluid levels were checked as well, this includes the coolant and windscreen fluid levels.

As our technician performed a complete vehicle inspection on this Audi and it was found that there was a crack in the coolant tank which enabled the coolant tank to leak. We sourced and installed a new OE coolant expansion tank on the Audi A5 in order to rectify the issue.

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.

The vehicle required a pink slip which is a service carried out and completed by RamSpeed Automotive selected technicians.

BMW 335i Minor Service, Repairs and Tune

We worked on a BMW 335i in November this year; it needed a minor service and some additional repairs, as well as a tuning request by the customer.

The service was done according to the log book schedule and current km on the vehicle. With just short of 70,000km one of our experienced mechanics carried out a Service A + flush as well as a brake fluid flush.  Brake fluid is flushed and system is bled of air every 2 years to maintain consistent brake pedal feel as well as maintaining the car brake system servicing schedule.

When the vehicle was originally inspected, it was found that the roof operation and cables were not functioning optimally. The roof lining would sag into the car. Ramspeed replaced the roof cables which allowed the roof lining to tighten and in all allow better functioning of the roof top. During early inspection it was also found that the headlight washer cover needed replacing, which was also completed by Ramspeed.  The vehicle also needed a new BMC air filter, which was carried out successfully.

Separate to servicing requirements, the customer had requested an ECU tune on his 335i.  The customer was happy to know that the ECU tuning would optimize fuel burn efficiency, increase the engine torque and optimize air flow and air volume.
