Rod bearings are a typical wear item on certain high revving engines. During replacement, we recommend a coated aftermarket option to prolong bearing life and reduce friction. Bearings are still a wear item and there is no official replacement interval, but we feel comfortable recommending a preventative replacement every 100,000 miles. Track your bearing wear with regularly used oil analysis and plan on the rod bearing replacement sometime in your engine’s future.

After you make certain performance modifications to your vehicle it may run rich- (too much fuel and not enough air), or lean -(to much air and not enough fuel). If you run into these problems that means it is time for a software tune. A software tune allows your vehicle to run at optimum performance with these specific modifications.

Bavarian and their staff went above and beyond with my Huracan service and repair. I was stranded on the side of the road near the shop and they immediately responded (in the rain as well) to get me up and running and back to the shop. Kind and professional. Highly recommend their shop and personnel.
When I had a recall and some routine service done on my vehicle, I was informed I needed strut replacement estimated at $2400.
I don’t usually shop for automobile service, but since Bavarian Rennsport was nearby, I called them. They responded quickly allowing an appointment for inspection and a quote within a few days. Their professionalism and thoroughness were amazing.
I had revealed the previously quoted estimate and wondered if I had been wise to do that. Bavarian Rennsport came back with news the vehicle needed a pair of struts and brake fluid service, however, their quote was considerably less than what I had received previously. Not only do I have a smoother ride, but I’ve also discovered a service treasure.
I am very satisfied with the work done.
Bavarian R S has state of the art diagnostic equipment.
The technicians are very knowledgeable and friendly.
The booking system is very user friendly
I took my 2020 Porsche Cayenne in for the 30,000 mile maintenance. I was impressed by the professionalism and caring that the Shawn and the Service Technician displayed. It is very rare and exciting to actually experience a business that cares about the customer as much as they do. I recommend them to other Porsche owners without any hesitation.
Superb service, awesome owners n staff.
BR really care about my car and me. My 2008 Mini Cooper has never been in better hands.
Car was in for several issues, when a very serious problem with the engine was discovered and taken care of.
I’m grateful to the owners and staff at BR for taking care of my car in a such great manner.
Had a six year old battery on my BMW that needed replacing and registered Shawn and crew took care of me quickly.
Felt weird initially taking my 2009 vw jetta into this place with Porsche, Ferrari and BMW cars all over the place but they treated me as ever other customer gave me pictures and went through my entire car. Would definitely go back.
My first experience with BR was truly exceptional. I didn’t understand their appointment procedure and ended up waiting extra days for the job to be done, but the ultimate outcome was nothing but positive. Amazing operation.
Italo and his team completed a thorough PPI on a 2015 Mercedes E63S for me. Super thankful I had it done, they caught a number of issues quickly and pointed them out. Very professional service and pricing is on point. Saved me major $ and headaches. All the high-end Lamborghini eye candy at the shop didn’t hurt either!
The shop provides excellent and meticulous service to keep my vehicle in top shape. The owner does go the extra mile to satisfy the customer’s needs. Highly recommend their service compared to other local shops and BMW dealerships.
