Does anybody know of anyone in the DFW area that offers a walnut blasting service? Much appreciated!

Most BMW shops will do it, but unfortunately only to BMWs.

NTX Premier Auto offers the service, but last time I called them (weeks ago) their media blaster was broken and they didn't know when it would be up and running...which reminds me that I need to call them again.

There is a guy on the BMW forums that lives South of Dallas that does it for BMWs for a couple hundred bucks. I'm tempted to buy my own supplies and get to it since we are talking about spending around $200 more than payinga shop do it. I've done this on my mazdaspeed using someone else's tools and it isn't that bad but does take a long time if its your first time going through it.

DI engines need this every 20K miles IMO. It doesn't matter if you seafoam, have meth injection, or use cleaners in your gas. DI engines get filthy overtime for normal driving and its just something that comes with the platform. EGR deletes and AOS do help but you'll still need to clean the valves after a few ten thousand miles.

Yeah, as much as I drive every day to work, I'd like to get this done to prolong the life of the engine. I've watched a few videos of the whole process on youtube and it seems pretty tedious yet simple. It comes down to having the right tools and media. Let me know what NTX says about their media blaster. Appreciate the info.
