BMW E53 X5 SAV, one of many BMWs serviced at Auto Specialties of Lake Norman, the BMW Dealer alternative.
Services we offer for BMW vehicles.
Sophistication, Elegance and Power are some of the reasons why BMW is the most recognized and respected automobile worldwide.  Due to the advanced state of the art technology fitted in these vehicles, your choice of repair facility should be carefully considered.  With our constantly updated training and access to current service information and equipment, we can perfom all levels of service.

From basic maintenance to advanced fiber optic diagnostics, Auto Specialties of Lake Norman is a wise choice for the care of your BMW. The "true measure" of a BMW specialty shop, used to be whether or not the shop has a GT1. Since GT1s are now obsolete, you must now find a shop that uses the new generation of diagnostic equipment: ISTA.

The newest interface from BMW, which is the same as what the dealers use, is the ICOM. If your current BMW shop isn't using the ICOM, they are not using factory standards to repair BMWs!

ISTA/D is the software that replaces the diagnostic capabilites of the GT1 and ISTA/P is the factory software that replaces the Coding, Individualization and Programming (CIP) functions of SSS (Progman). Only the shops who have an ICOM and utilize ISTA will be able to work on current BMWs and older BMWs with newer Integration Levels.

You spent alot for your BMW and probably care about keeping it up! Why trust it with anybody who can offer less than the absolute best? Auto Specialties of Lake Norman is ICOM & ISTA equipped and ready for the future of BMW!

Please note, that on many late model BMW's, single module reprogramming is not possible.  The entire vehicle must be programmed to bring all fitted modules up to the same program level.  Although we are equipped to handle this, it is a very time consuming procedure and we ask that you make arrangements to drop the vehicle off, should you need a software update. We have access to BMW GT1, SSS (Progman), ISTA/D and ISTA/P for all of your BMW repair needs.
If you do need a module replaced, regardless of your vehicles age or chassis, please let us replace the module for you, so that we may extract needed info from the old module prior to replacement.
