Has anyone ever told you, “If you want the best service for your vehicle, you have to go to the dealership?”
And if so…did that person work at a dealership?
It’s a well-known fact that dealerships want to get your money. There are mark-ups, hidden fees, service charges, and just plain high prices on a lot of products and services. So why stay loyal to a place that simply wants to get as much money from you as possible? The short answer is – don’t.
Euroworks is your dealer alternative, because we offer everything that they do (and a little more) – but we do it more affordably and with more customization that works for you. We are proud to be Calgary’s best choice for all kinds of high-performance vehicle tune ups and service work, and here’s why.
We are not beholden to a parent company that demands exorbitant prices, markups, and target quotas, which means our prices are better and the savings are passed on to you, on everything from oil filters to major engine overhauls. Our staff is comprised of ex-dealer technicians who have plenty of experience working on the cars that we see, and who have been specifically trained to do the necessary work to keep the engines running their best. We even carry high-end equipment and diagnostic tools that are equivalent to all the OEM parts found at dealerships, and furthermore, we often have performance parts that are better than OEM parts – all of which are compatible with your high-end European vehicle. All in all, we have the same, or sometimes better, quality service than you would find at a dealership.
Because we are a locally-run and family-owned shop, we have far less overhead than a major corporation, giving us yet another way to save you money. We also offer the ability to have direct conversations with our service advisors, who are there on site to explain what your vehicle will need (and not, might we add, to try and convince you to do totally unnecessary extra work!). We even honour third-party warranties so that you get the most out of the money you’ve already spent.
In some instances, we can even go beyond the dealerships – we can offer performance tuning to get your car up to its full potential, and we can get you different options and pricing on new or used parts as well. We also do ECU tuning and ECU repairs – something that dealerships probably won’t even go near!
As always, we have our customers’ priorities ahead of our profits – our customers are people, and not just walking dollar signs. We rely on good word of mouth and referrals to keep our business going, not shady practices and overcharging for basic work. And so far it’s been going pretty well, as we’ve been proudly open in Calgary for over 24 years!
Next time you need work done on your high-end, high-performance European car, avoid the hassle of the dealership and come to Euroworks instead. We are committed to customer service and creating repeat clients with our transparent work policies and our dedicated, knowledgeable staff. Come and see what your dealer alternative can do for you, and how you can save time and money when you get your car fixed in Calgary, Alberta! We are conveniently located just off the Trans-Canada Highway, at 2341 20 Ave NE. We look forward to getting you back on the road and helping your engine reach its full performance potential!
We live in a world run by computers. From the phones in our pockets to the servers on the stock market, nearly everything we use now has some connection to software and programming. And, of course, this includes modern cars.
For years now, high-end cars have come with a pre-installed computer chip that keeps track of what’s going on under the hood. While this is an important diagnostic tool – the chip can scan the engine and report any problems directly to you or the mechanics working on it – it has also become a way for manufacturers to limit the performance of your vehicle. This “detuning” of the engine protects it from careless drivers, poor maintenance, and low-quality fuel – but what happens when you really want to drive the car you bought? What if you want to push it as far as it can go and get your money’s worth?
Well, simply put….the only way is to tune the engine up to where it should be!
That’s where Euroworks comes in. Through our ECU (electronic control unit) tuning program, we can update the software in your car’s computer so that it runs better than ever. It involves no physical alterations to the vehicle, and only takes an hour or two – but the end results are easy to see: 10-15% improvement of fuel economy. Smoother, faster acceleration. Increased raw power. And removal of the speed limiter, so you can really feel the difference when you’re putting all those things together.
With our specialized software, our on-site certified technicians simply connect to the chip, update the necessary files, make sure everything is compatible and working properly…and that’s it! Just like that, your high-end car can reach the potential it was meant to have all along. While we’re doing that, we can even check the engine for any trouble before it becomes a major issue; we can reprogram keys, personalize vehicle settings, reset fault codes, and more. It’s an all-in-one package that will have you feeling like you’ve got a whole new car!
And right now is the time to get it tuned up, in preparation for warmer weather ahead. Contact us today so we can help you get the maximum power and performance you paid for!
Combustion engines have come a long way since they were invented over a hundred years ago. Of all the innovations introduced since then, one of the best is the fairly recent creation of direct fuel injection: it gives you Increased Power and Efficiency where you need it most.
With great power, though, comes great vehicle carbon build-up?
In these engines, the fuel is directly injected into the combustion chamber of each individual cylinder, and no longer passes through the intake valves – and no longer keeps them clean through constant contact. This means that over time, deposits of carbonised fuel and oil build up both on the intake tract and its valves. This can reduce efficiency, oil life, and throttle response, as well as causing rough idling or vibrations. And the worst part? This process cannot be prevented!
So what’s the responsible car owner to do?
One way to fix this problem is to completely dismantle the whole intake system and soak it in cleaner for at least 2 full days, and then clean them manually. But as this takes a lot of time, effort, work, and expertise, it can get expensive quickly. Another is to flush the whole system with cleaning solution – but due to the amount of time the solution needs, the process is slow (it can take more than a week, during which you can’t drive the car) and still requires manual cleaning. Clearly neither of these are ideal.
There is a better way, though, and Euroworks has got it!
It’s called Walnut Blasting, and it’s much cheaper, faster, and more effective than any other way on the market. Basically, a blasting tool uses compressed air to shoot very fine walnut shell granules into the intake tract. These particles hit the built-up carbon deposits at high speed and break them away, while at the same time, they are soft enough that they won’t damage the metal around it. No expensive removal of the system is necessary, and it’s much quicker than the others – on the scale of minutes rather than weeks!
By doing this, you’re renewing the life of your intake valves and tract, making them more efficient and able to perform to a higher standard in all areas. Regular cleaning by walnut blasting will save you money over the long run, by making sure you’re not losing power or performance over the years.
