Last year, we sent VW Brand Ambassador Jamie Orr on a trip all across the country in a pre-production MK5 Sportwagen we affectionately called the Rallywagen where it ended in the Arctic Circle. This year we picked up a VW MK7 GTI and decided to build it here at ECS to debut at SEMA and then head South to drive all the way to the tip of South America on some of the most demanding roads. Rallywagen 2.0 was fully constructed in-house by our team of engineers. See the full journey here!

Flushing brake fluid is a commonly overlooked maintenance service for most car owners. Fluid should be flushed every 1-2 years as a good service plan, however checking with the manufacturer's suggestions is best. A simple way to tell if the fluid is in need of a change is by looking at the color, new fluid will have a slight yellow hue while amber is the sign of a needed flush. Because brake fluid is hygroscopic, its designed to hold moisture away from the metal internals to prevent corrosion. Like a sponge the fluid can only hold so much moisture before becoming ineffective.

Your BMW has an interference engine, which means if the timing chain were to fail for any reason, you would have catastrophic engine damage due to valve to piston contact. Over time the timing chain will start to wear and stretch, potentially causing it to skip timing or just completely fail. Also, the timing tensioners themselves could fail! Early symptoms of timing chain wear include front end noise not associated with VANOS, or slapping noises coming from the timing cover. We have created the perfect solution for you. Everything you need to service your timing chain is included.

Aftermarket radio installations are rarely a plug and play operation. They usually require extensive wiring, additional adapters, and a dashboard trim kit. The result is a head unit that sticks out like a sore thumb and doesn't match the design of the interior. Bremmen's Android Multimedia System features an high definition capacitive touch screen and mounts into the same locations as the factory radio. The included wiring harness allows for a nearly plug and play seamless installation. The high resolution touch screen is a upgrade worth itself over BMWs with factory navigation.
