Does anyone know a good shop in the SF BayArea that will install Pulleys? I had the pulleys for about 3 months just sitting in the trunk of my car. Or does anyone know how to install them?

TIA:thumbup:

even though theres extensive DIY on the web, im too scared to try touching that. A) i know i dont have the right tools, and b) i KNOW something will go wrong and then my car will be undrivable. Id try looking in the phone book for any german trained mechanics. Pulley installs are very easy for a trained mechanic, and i think any decent shop will do a good job for you.

I would do the install myself, but my torque wrench's lowest setting is 25lbs. and the pulleys need to be toruqed to 16lbs. I dont wanna risk snapping the bolt and not being able to drive my car.

How about the place where you installed your cup kit? lol...i wonder how uneven your pulley will rotate..hahaah
They'll probably just fly off. :eeps:

I dont think it should be too hard to do, but i dont wanna go buy a torque wrench just fo this one job.

Easy DIY if you have tools.

But here's the deal:
Artec Motorsports in SF
Competition Autowerks in San Ramon.

Try Rennwerks in Mountain View. They specialize in BMW/Porsche and have lots of street high perf/racing experience and have BMW Master Technician on staff. Check out the website under same name.

Let us know what they charge.

Personally I would do a DIY but if you really wanna have a shop do it I would go to Rennwerks in Mountain view. They specialize in BMW's and Porches and in fact race cars with both manufacturers. I recommend this shop to a lot of people and have been happy with their service and quality...

One more thing, they are also a qualified UUC dealer so they should know what their doing...

I'll try giving Rennwerks a call tomorrow. I hope they don't charge like 200 bucks for the install. If thats the case, i'll go out and buy a small torque wrench and try and do it myself.

I don't know about going to rick. He still hasn't fixed my auto level sensor that broke when i got my car back. He said it happend while i was driving, but i doubt it. :dunno:
