    Although more often than not, dealer maintained cars have a higher resale value compared to those serviced by independent shops
    Not always the case, vehicle condition itself still plays a major role.

    Dealer service records can also be doctored if you know the right people.

    Got the car back from Autohaus. They suggested some repairs that are not critical but expensive. Told them not to do it. Where can I have these fixed:

    1. engine noise from alternator mechanical tensioner
    2. engine noise from alternator deflection pulley
    3. engine noise from a/c mechanical ensioner
    4. suspension noise from rear guide support left and right
    5. suspension noise from control arm bushing

    Yung 1,2 and 3 pulley kaya ito o bearing?
    4 and 5 pwede kaya kay Cruven?

    1-5 do you really hear the noise? maybe they just want your money.My advise is invest a repair manual for your bmw.

    We used to have our cars serviced there. Unfortunately, their service kinda took a nose dive.

    For 1-3, the engine sounds rough. I don't know what it is or where it comes from. Can't pin point it. All I know is that it does not sound as smooth as it should. 4-5, I do hear suspension noise like a clunk or thud. I suspect that it is a bushing.

    Saddly, I am not mechanically inclined and would probably do more harm than good to the car. Heck, I was once trying to fix a toilet and ended up damaging parts that had nothing to do with the problem. My wife still reminds me about it. So I rather let real mechanics do the work.

    from EDSA cubao its just a few meters away. If you see the burger machine stand on your right that's the shop behind it. look above and you'll see the blue signage.

    Autovec's numbers are: 725-6914, 726-2978. Look for Werner Reimer, 0920-9268100.
    Autovec's address is 479-A E. Rodriguez Sr. Ave., Cubao, Q.C.

    Di ko pa natry sa autovecs at autotechnika. May thread about autotechnika sa goon squad. Although it seems that they have solved the problem and tsikoters are happy with them.

    Dati sa top gear kami nagpapaservice. Pero nung huli di na maganda ang nangyayari. As in charge nila kami for 8 liters of oil eh 4.5 liters ang laman ng van ko. They replaced rear brake pads, after 10,000 kms they want to change it again. Our other car, they replaced the drive belts, around 3 months later may tama na ulit.

    You can also try Speedyfix.
