My name is Craig Whyms and I would like to introduce myself and our company BWA Auto to the forum as the most recent sponsor as of today. I just want to give everyone an overview of who we are, what we are about and the services that we offer.
BWA Auto is a family owned and operated business started by my father, Bob over 40 years ago and who is still involved in the company today. We have always specialised in European vehicles in particular the Audi, Porsche and VW brands but also including BMW, Mercedes etc. We are centrally located in Western Sydney, based in Seven Hills we are close to the M2, M7 and M4 motorways and have public transport near by.
We have three arms to our business servicing, performance and spare parts and I will expand a bit more on those:
Servicing - We carry out all forms of log book servicing, general repairs and maintenance as well as all forms of overhaul and repairs. We have the latest in diagnostic equipment and scanners, fuel injection test equipment including fuel injector testing for the latest Direct Petrol fuel injection injectors, electronic unit diesel and common rail diesel injector bench testing. We have our own 8-Point laser wheel aligner, wheel balancing and corner weighting scales for race car preparation. We also cater to full engine and transmission overhauling in our dedicated unit room which currently has 1 x 911 SC engine, 2 x Boxster S engines, 2 x 996 3.4 engines and one 996 6-Speed gearbox all in some state of repair. We carry out about 95% of our own work in house including full vehicle restorations.
Performance - The latest arm of our business is in the performance modifications and improvements area in particular in the late model Audi & VW scene as well as the other marques that we cater for and specialise in. This includes basic ECU tuning, DSG tuning and upgrades, exhaust, suspension, wheels, body and cosmetic upgrades through to turbo & supercharger conversions and other quite substantial projects. We are agents and distributors for Evolution Motorsports, EVOMSit (tuning), HGP Turbo upgrades and DSG programming, Stasis Engineering, KW Suspensions, iForged Wheels, Forgestar, DPE Wheels, RevoZport, Scorpion Exhausts plus many, many more. We have what was Sydney's first 4WD chassis Dyno-Dynamics dyno which is about to be upgraded in November with an Australian first. A common question we get is in regards to our ECU tuning process which is somewhere between the off the shelf suppliers and full custom tuning. Every vehicle that we flash/tune is put onto the dyno where we do baseline runs, data logs and the ECU file extraction. We then send all of that information to EVOMSit where I have direct contact and access to the head tuner and we go back and forth a couple of times customising what would ordinarily be an off the shelf tune for your vehicle and when we hand back the keys we give you a dyno sheet with a before and after graph, this entire service including the dyno time is included in the tune price. All of this performance and tuning work is done 100% in house in our 1,000sqm facility in Seven Hills.
Spare parts - We are Australia's largest independent Porsche parts supplier, but we also carry a large range of OE, OEM and aftermarket replacement parts in stock for all the German marques, adding to this we are also constantly increasing our lines and products that we distribute in the performance upgrade market as well. We are agents and/or distributors for the following - Mahle filters and engine components, ZF and Sachs, Luk Clutches, Sebro brakes, Adam's Rotors, ECS Tuning partner, FK Automotive, Forge Motorsport, TID Styling, Vibra-Technics performance mounts, VF-Engineering plus many, many more. We are currently in the process of building and testing our online spare parts web warehouse which we hope to make available by the end of this year.
Thanks for taking time to read through a little about ourselves, please visit our website BWA Automotive for Porsche BMW Mercedes VW Audi or checkout our new Facebook and Twitter pages for more information.
Please e-mail or PM me if you have any questions or if I can be of service and help in anyway.
Thanks to Aaron for the warm welcome and reception and I look forward to getting to know a lot of you guys moving forward, we are always open to Group Buys and we hope to be running some dyno days next year once we have our new state of the art dyno and dyno room commissioned in early November.
