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.

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. Understanding how the stock software in these vehicles work is fundamental to extracting more power safely.

I am the proud owner of a 2004 BMW Z-4, 3.0i with only 42K miles.My nightmare started when the transmission died and had the car taken to Bavarian Rennsport. After a new transmission from BMW we thought that all is well and on our way, two weeks later car died transmission light on, car will not move, burned out module,which was replaced,the car only went a short distance shuts down again. Sent car to BMW diagnostic they said burned out dash board need replaced at a cost of thousands. Shawn the owner said that cant be, and he will find the cause, they spent thousand of their dollars to figure out what was the cause.A burned out door sensor that told the transmission the doors are open and the car should go into park mode, if you keep driving you rip up the transmission.NO ONE COULD FIND THIS CAUSE THEY DID. What was my cost I paid for the module, they absorbed the rest. What a stand up company, no other place to take your BMW.
Since I relocated to Jax, the Bavarian Renns sport team take great care of my 2001 Porsche….They are very honest, knowledgeable, professional and top qualified technicians. Highly recommended!! Thanks, Ric
I am new to the Bavarian family. My first experience was them working on my all original 1973 2002 Tii a couple of months ago. Communication was great and the work was done in a timely manner. Because of this experience, I trusted them to pick up my new addition to the family last week, 1976 S14 2002. It was a flawless experience. Will get it back to you this week to tidy up some loose ends. Can’t thank you enough for the communication and timeliness of your work.

My relationship with Bavarian Rennsport began with me calling them not knowing what was going on with my car. They quickly had my car towed to the shop, started diagnostics and later that week gave me a full understanding of what was going on with my car. After a short period of time, the car was fixed and I was on the road again. I was able to leave with piece of mind and confidence in The condition of the car. The team at Rennsport is truly like no other. They treated me like family, kept me updated on the condition of the car, reassured me when I was overwhelmed, and conducted business in a very professional manor. I am blessed that my car was taken to Rennsport rather than any other shop or dealer. This team is comprised of true BMW enthusiasts who are passionate of the work that they do. They went above and beyond and their exceptional work shows in my car. I will continue to conduct business with them and I greatly appreciate everything they have done for me and my car.
Had my wife’s AMG GLE Coupe serviced at Bavarian Rennsport today. What a really nice, professional, and efficient crew. They did awesome work and the car was completed on time as promised. I am so pleased, I will be introducing my other vehicle to Bavarian Rennsport in the form of an oil change hopefully tomorrow or Friday (and it’s not due yet). 🙂 If you want first class service at a business that’s well versed in high-end vehicles, I highly recommend this establishment.
Thanks for the great service (20,000 Mile) on our Airstream Sprinter van. Please know how much we appreciated your attention to detail and the time you spent with us to answer all our questions. I will highly recommend you to others and return for any future Van Maintenance.
Jeffrey did excellent work on my classic Mercedes. He quickly diagnosed the problem and fixed it. In fact he made some adjustments and the car and it now has much better throttle response. I was back on the road on my vacation in no time. Rennsport knows classic cars too.
Just a note to say we were really impressed with our salesman Chris Cutting at Tom Bush BMW in Jacksonville Fl. Not only was he personable but he was very knowledgeable about our BMW X1. It was a very enjoyable experience.
I was delivered great service, a fixed car, and a peace of mind. Definitely keeping these guys for future services! Thank you for keeping it stress free for this military wife! My husband and I sure do appreciate it.
Took my 1995 BMW M3 to THE BMW GUYS for a tune-up and performance upgrades. I was more than pleased with my repairs and the customer service is over the top. The Bavarian Rennsport family are welcoming and always willing to help… even on Sunday nights and I needed my car for work Monday morning.
