A couple of notes/comments after doing my 2008 E61 535i. Used E6 socket (reverse torx) to remove manifold studs to allow manifold to clear rear charge pipe. Prying up on plastic tabs of "evil box" with a very small flat blade screwdriver allowed it to slide right off locking rails. Started yesterday using the chem clean method. Makes a "muddy" mess. Difficult to clean and dry out. Had a gun cleaning brush disintegrate using a dremel (on lowest speed). Lots of little wires to clean up. Really did not make much progress. Finished this morning walnut blasting with fine walnut shells using vacuum adapter and wand. Took 30 to 60 seconds to perfectly clean a cylinder. Recovered walnut shells from vacuum and reused twice. Notes on turning over engine with AT. Tried a remote start switch on starter. Starter spun, but bendix did not engage flywheel. Best tip I found online (Can't find it again to give credit to OP): T50 Torx on 3/8" drive ratchet in alternator pulley (remove plastic cap on pulley) allows motor to be turned (counter-clockwise). This works great as you can watch the valves while you turn the motor. Engine drive pulley accessible from under the car without fan removal. (22 mm socket) I encountered resistance (even with the plugs out) that was causing the alternator pulley to slip. Turning drive pulley got me past that.

t took me awhile to get the time to do this. All worked as shown and expected. Check engine light stayed on for about 2 days then cleared by itself. (I tried to reset it with my code reader) Thanks again for putting this together for all of us. Feel free to add this to any feedback you have with my name. Very happy customer, Bob

Wes, Vacuum Adapter and wand worked perfect for my 2011 335is with 60k. I can't believe how thick that crud was on the intake, it's a wonder the car even ran. Good luck with continued business, you certainly have my recommendation on the forums. DIY was a huge help too. A couple items that may make it easier on folks while they're at HF: http://www.harborfreight.com/engine-brush-kit-20-pc-69020.html can help with some of the stubborn carbon when hooked up to a drill. and http://www.harborfreight.com/8-piece-right-angle-screwdriver-92630.html was a lifesaver with the screws on the evil box that would not come off. Thanks, Matt

I discovered Bimmerhelp only after I had purchased the BMW wand and adapter, otherwise I would probably have bought those tools here instead. I came here only to buy the flared adapter, and boy did it make life a lot simpler, as I saw how the HD/Lowe's fittings were now simply plug and play. Wesley's response to my order was immediate, his response to my own self-inflicted confusion upon receiving the order was immediate (to which I did solve, but the moral support was so appreciated), and his attitude was only helpful and supportive all around. He is a highly recommended vendor. Purchase with confidence.

Purchased the wand and adapter and couldn't be happier. Worked great, excellent communication, and even a priority shipping upgrade. I called around to some of the specialty tool suppliers in my area first, and their walnut machines were going from $700-$1500. This one ended up costing around $100 thanks to Wes, thanks.

Wesley provided excellent communication and follow up regarding my purchase. He kept me informed about when the items would be shipped etc and all of the parts I ordered worked very well. Using his tools and instructions I was able to walnut blast my car and will also be helping out some friends with their cars.

I'm a mechanic by trade, so I wouldn't attempt to do certain jobs without the right tools. After reading many fourms I came across www.Bimmerhelp.info and decided that these were what I needed to do the job right. The bimmerhelp wand was wonderful didnt have to make my own adapters just screw in and go. The plastic valve adapter it was flawless. Thank you Wes for the great customer service and products.
