BMW Company Recent History

BMW has an outsized reputation for being on the cutting edge of technology in the automotive field. This was garnered from their “New Class” of cars that were released in the 1970s and continued through the 1980s. Since 2002, BMW has focussed less on keeping value in the car from sturdy construction and reliability. As more expensive technology has taken over the design process, in addition to becoming more integrated into the systems of the vehicle; BMW has lowered their emphasis on long-term reliability and so all current BMW drivers have a harder, more expensive experience owning these vehicles. We can help you trust your Bimmer’s reliability by keeping tabs on all of your BMWs systems every time you come in for service.

*Note on transmission services and “lifetime fluid”. We recommend servicing the transmission, at a minimum, every 60,000 miles in order to ensure longevity of the transmission’s internal components. Failure to follow this maintenance regimen can results in needed repairs/replacement of the transmission totalling $4k+ as early as 110,000 miles.

Repairing a BMW ZF 6hp26 Transmission

Worn bushing causes wear in E piston

Piston seal deterioration.

When the 6hp26 is removed we always have to look for greenish leaks from crank seal and upper coolant passage. This one was leaking from the upper passage.

Mechatronics seal in the 6hp26 and 6hp19 will crack with age and miles and cause the trans to leak pressure. The common characteristic of this is when you shift into drive or reverse it immediately shifts itself back into park

These two pics show wear from mileage and improper service regimens.

This E Clutch was in a lower mileage 6hp26 that had been run low on fluid from a leak that was left unattended. If you service with us regularly, we catch these leaks early so you won't need expensive services like these, as early as shown in this case.

The pan on the left is for non-stop/start transmissions. The stop/start transmissions, on the right have a reservoir that holds fluid and pressure and keeps fluid moving through the transmission when the vehicle stops.

I was having issues with my BMW x3 shutting off unexpectedly and taking it to a different mechanic. He couldnt figure out what was wrong so I brought it here and within what seemed like an hour they knew exactly what the issue was. They offered to drive me to work after i had the car towed in. (i had a friend with me giving me a ride so i decline) it was just nice to know they are wanting to go above and beyond for their customers. And thats only the beginning! I thought my car would be in the shop for a couple of days but they had it done the next morning. When I came to pick it up i could tell that they washed the car and vacuumed the driver area. I have a two year old so i dont blame them or expected them to clean the entire inside. it was definitely a great surprise after all the stress of car problems. Nicole at the front desk was amazing. Very sweet and kept in contact with me every step of the way sending me emails and phone calls. When I told her I had to talk to my fiance about the issues and cost before they started everything she was very understanding. She answered all of my questions and concerns as well. At the end they gave me a list of recommendations for my car and discussed the order of importance. The entire time I did not feel stupid for asking questions, talked down too because im a young woman (lets be honest most mechanics roll their eyes at us), or pressured to do anything and for that I wish I could have given them more stars.

They repaired an engine cover as a courtesy at no extra charge. Obviously they are as OCD as I am. Thanks

I took my BMW 550i to Mr. Cole after taking it to a few other places. Not only did the man fix the problem he even gave me a ride home!! I would definitely be using him again. I just bought a 335i and guess where I will be dropping it off at?? You guessed right!

This is the only place I will take my Mini Cooper and Mercedes. Trent and his staff are very professional and courteous. I highly recommend them.

Stopped in on the way driving from Houston to Santa Fe when my car started having trouble with the belly pan falling off. Called in and they were very helpful on the phone and even fixed the problem free of charge. Highly recommend coming here!

Our car was at another shop for seven months and nothing was done. We had it towed to Lone Star Bavarian and they had the work done in two days. Amazing experience and everyone was so nice. There’s still more work to be done and we will be bringing it back.
