Like what you see?

Donations to dvatp.com are now processed via Stripe. Like this site? It's easier than ever to show your appreciation.


Maintaining this website takes a lot of my time, and time is money. I ask that you consider a donation if this website has helped you in some way. Your contribution will encourage me to create more helpful website content and respond to email.

Feel free to donate any amount with which you feel comfortable, but if you leverage my detailed BMW technical data and procedures to save money I ask that you donate 10% of that savings. Save $300? Send me $30. I think that's fair. It's a small price to pay and you still make out like a bandit. As they say, "Win-Win".

Donating to dvatp.com is easy!

  1. Select the donation amount in US dollars and click the Donate button.
  2. Enter your billing address and payment information.
  3. Click the "Pay" button.

That's it! Your donation will be promptly processed and a record of the transaction will be sent to the email address you provide.


  1. The donation process requires javascript. Make sure you disable any script blockers or explicitly whitelist dvatp.com, stripe.com and stripecdn.com.

  2. To avoid a decline of the transaction please enter the billing address associated with the card.

  3. This is a one-time transaction. We will not charge your card again unless you explicitly reload this page and execute another payment.

  4. All data you enter is securely forwarded to our payment processor and stored on their PCI-compliant servers.

  5. You may cancel the transaction PRIOR to clicking the "Pay..." button simply by clicking the "X" in the top right corner of the payment dialog.

  6. Donations via Paypal or check are no longer accepted.

If you have any questions about this process, please email me.


In the interest of privacy -- yours and mine -- I do not reveal the identity of those who donate to this site or the amounts received, though I do keep a record of those who donate because they get priority handling in email.
