Autobahn Specializes in Computer Diagnostics for Mercedes Benz, BMW and Most European Cars

Late model cars are becoming more and more sophisticated everyday. The old big and bulky mechanical parts are relentlessly being replaced by the tiny and light weight computer chips, that do the same job as the mechanical parts but more efficiently, and they rarely fail. But (and it’s a big but), when they do fail, they require up-to-date factory level diagnostic equipment and specially trained technicians to operate this equipment. And that can leave you at the mercy of your mechanic’s honesty and integrity.

Autobahn Performance has built its reputation on experience, honesty and integrity. That is why we have been recognized as the best European automotive repair shop in Broward County. Autobahn Performance has over 15 different diagnostic computers and scanners, including: Launch X431, Mercedes

BMW Diagnostics

Compact 3, Mercedes SDS, Program Tools PC Retriever, Mongoose BlueLink Scanner, C.A.N. Analyzer, Snap-On Modis, Strategic Tools C.A.N. Breakout Box.

Autobahn also has several lab scopes and even an old Allen Computer Test Center that incorporates a 4 gas analyzer with a true analog ignition scope with distributor-less ignition adapters for many models of vehicles. This machine was over $35,000 new in the 1980’s and we still use it regularly at Autobahn.

Mercedes Diagnostics

We also have two laboratory grade regulated power supplies that can maintain stable regulated voltage on your vehicle during programming. This is important on late model BMW’s as well as other vehicles. If there are voltage fluctuations, spikes, or AC voltage ripple during programming, the data can become irreversibly corrupted, causing multiple control units to fail; this could cost well over $10,000 to correct. Our power supplies can regulate voltage

precisely up to 25 volts and can limit current to any level up to 100 amps. We begin each car’s diagnostic session with a general diagnosis. Then we “drill down” to analyze specific problems. Our Autologic Scan Tool works very well with Land Rover and BMW vehicles, as well as others.

Some modern Mercedes Benz cars employ active suspensions. They have no springs, conventional shock absorbers, or anti-sway bars. We have a dealer level computer to diagnose these systems as we put them through rigorous tests to evaluate their performance and correct any malfunctions.

In these photos, notice the cable that connects the car to our computer; commands are sent on this cable from our computer (on the cart) to the car’s suspension components. The car’s suspension sensors report success or failure in executing the computer’s commands.


Performance Upgrades

Mercedes Brake Pads

Due to our love for European cars and our continuous involvement in auto racing, Autobahn Performance prides itself on staying current with all factory and non-factory (aftermarket) high performance parts and equipment for Mercedes Benz, BMW, Porsche, Volkswagen, VW, Audi and Jaguar.

Performance upgrades usually requires some modifications to factory equipment. Whenever changes are made to the factory installed equipment,  functions on related equipment can also be affected.

You want to be sure you have all the information about the upgrade before you purchase it.

AMG Disc Brakes

We love high performance products at Autobahn, performance is our business!

Whatever you desire to improve on your vehicle, we have probably already done that upgrade on other cars. Call us before you do anything so we can advise you on all that needs to be considered.

And most importantly, you want an experienced mechanic to perform the upgrade so you don’t end up sacrificing performance on something else; or worse yet, damaging related components. Autobahn might even be able to suggest a better product for the performance you want to achieve.

With the engine running, connect the gauge to the low-pressure port on the A/C system. The high side has a larger adapter, so you can’t accidentally attach the gauge to the wrong port. With the gauge attached, you can now turn the valve to add more refrigerant to the system. In the photo inset, you can see the pressure for this A/C system is exactly where it should be”in the middle of the white range. Remember to use heavy-duty leather gloves and eye protection when working around A/C components. It’s possible that a fitting or a valve may break or otherwise leak refrigerant on your hands.

BMW A/C Refrigerant

A belt that runs off the main crankshaft operates the A/C compressor. On cars with a manual adjustment, make sure you don’t tighten this belt too tightly, or you may place undue pressure on the bearings inside the compressor. If you suspect you might be having problems with the compressor, check the belt first. Turn on the system, and verify that the electromagnetic clutch is engaging. If it is not, you may need to replace it. Check the power connection to make sure it is live before replacing the clutch.

If your factory warranty expires soon, Read this important information BEFORE it does!

Autobahn Performance is not factory certified to service or repair your vehicle if it is still covered under the factory warranty. Only dealers are certified for repairs while your factory warranty is active.

However, Autobahn Performance is nationally recognized by most warranty companies for repairs and service. If you have purchased an extended warranty, we can obtain an authorization to repair your vehicle from the warranty company (the factory warranty must be expired).

FREE End of Warranty Checkup

Before your factory warranty expires, do yourself a favor and get a FREE End of Warranty Checkup. When was the last time your dealership sent you a notice just before your car went out of warranty;

telling you about known problems on your vehicle that should be checked before your warranty expires? That just doesn’t happen. The truth is, unless you come to them with a complaint about a problem under warranty, they will not notify you even if they know your car has the potential for that problem.

Let’s face it — dealers would rather not perform any warranty work, its simply not profitable for them.

Bring your car to Autobahn Performance before your factory warranty expires. We will perform a complete Condition Inspection at N/C. We have all the latest computers and data on known problems with your car’s year, make and model.

BMW Warranty

We can fix anything that is not covered under warranty. Then give you a list of any problems that are covered under warranty to take to the dealership, so you can have it repaired for free — before your warranty expires. This could save you hundreds if not thousands of dollars!

We service extended warranty contracts in Broward County Florida, Oakland Park, Fort Lauderdale, Pompano Beach and all of South Florida.

Pre-Purchase Vehicle Inspection

AUDI • BENTLEY • BMW • JAGUAR • LAND ROVER • MERCEDES BENZ • MINI COOPER • PORSCHE • ROLLS-ROYCE • SAAB • SMART • SPRINTER • VOLKSWAGEN • VOLVO

Call Autobahn Performance about our Pre-Purchase Inspection before you buy a used car (dealer or private). We have the experience and all the data on common problems with the vehicle you are considering. Autobahn’s used car inspection process can take anywhere between 15 minutes to 5 hours depending on the extent of the inspection. We recommend our standard 2 hour inspection. Our inspections consist of a 100+ point checklist. It includes, scanning the computers on the vehicle for codes (if equipped) detailing any known issues. We’ll check the frame for straightness, inspect for

previous damage (crash), test body and paint work with a paint thickness gauge, and thoroughly test drive it to determine if the car is driving and handling properly. And most importantly, if the car is safe.

“Appearances can be deceiving; be certain that used car you’re signing on the dotted line for is not just a big pile of costly problems.”

Whether stranger or friend, there may be an undisclosed reason ($$) the seller is selling that car. Let Autobahn show you what (if anything) needs fixing. With the inspection results, you could even renegotiate the price, or just get out of a bad deal that might later cost you thousands to repair, or loss of a friendship; not to mention the inconvenience of time in the repair shop.

Never buy a car because you like or trust the person, or you like the way it looks. And just because the car was well maintained and he has all the repair records, doesn’t mean it’s problem free.

If it were that good of a car, he probably wouldn’t be selling it.

Your new-used car looks real nice on the tow truck too. Don’t take a chance, let Autobahn Performance check it out BEFORE you buy it, and save thousands of dollars and grief!

We sell and service all extended warranty contracts in Broward County Florida, Oakland Park, Fort Lauderdale, Pompano Beach and all of South Florida. As well as nationally.
