Paintless Dent Repair (PDR) at ZR Auto

Paintless dent repair (PDR) is a new service we're offering at ZR Auto. We've had so many requests over the years that we've decided to do the PDR process in-house to get rid of those nasty dents.

Let's face it, nobody is safe from dents. It's an unfortunate reality, but we have to deal with it. Parking lots, shopping carts, hail, rock kickback from that semi truck you're trying to pass, there's infitite ways that dent or ding could have happened, but there's one place you're guaranteed to have the dent removed right. There's various ways to remove dents, but we prefer to use Paintless Dent Repair (PDR) because it's the most effective and most economical method for getting your car dent free!

Our trained PDR team can take care of your dents and make your paint smooth once again. PDR uses a process that doesn't involve repainting your car or doing any procedures to hide the imperfections. We simply pull out the dents and give you that clean, flush look once again.

The extent to which the PDR will be effective depends on multiple factors: if the metal has been stretched by the damage, the cuvature or flatness where the damage occurred and the intensity of the impact.

Generally speaking, the shallower the dent, the greater the likelihood of paintless dent repair being a suitable option. Even dents several inches in diameter can be repaired by this method as long as the metal and paint are not stretched. Our experienced technicians can repair shallow, large or crease dents.

Come by ZR Auto and allow us to inspect your damage to see if PDR is right for you.

ECU Tuning at ZR Auto

ECU Tuning might seem like a very basic concept when it comes to modifying cars, but the reality is that an ECU tune is the most cost-effective and efficient way to get maximum power out of your car. Plus we're not technically even adding any expensive hardware to your car. It's all in the ECU map and maximizing the efficiency and settings of your engine.

So why should you consider getting an ECU tune you ask? In less than a few hours, we can tune your car's ECU to produce more power and torque, improve fuel economy, maximize fuel/air ratios and much more.

Did you know that a naturally aspirated engine can normally produce 30-50 hp more from an ECU tune alone?

With our partners, ECU Tuning Group, we can get you impressive proven results that won't break your budget and won't jeopardize your car's mechanical stability. ECU Tuning Group is one of the pioneers of ECU Tuning and supplies software to the likes of RennTech and other high-end tuning brands.

A turbocharged or supercharged car can see up to a 150 hp gain from a simple tune, and we're not even adding any performance parts.

ZR Auto carries software maps for BMW, Audi, Mercedes, Porsche, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Jaguar, Land Rover, Bentley, Aston Martin, Bugatti, Volkswagen and more!

Mercedes-AMG S63 Coupe gets some custom upgrades.

What do you get when you cross a brand new Mercedes-AMG S63 Coupe with some tasteful mods? You get an absolutely beautiful machine.

A customer from Edmonton brought us his brand new S63 AMG and told us to make it unique, and we did just that.

We began by blacking out all the trim pieces, grille and emblems. We then tinted the windows dark black to give the car a sinister look. Taillight and headlight tinting gave the car some distinct personality. Some black vinyl accents on the car give it some more unique touches.

Next we added an AL Priority radar jammer set to the Mercedes, as well as an Escort radar detector.

Finally we gave this beauty a set of 22" Vossen concave wheels in gunmetal grey to make it a one-of-a-kind street machine.
