: Independent BMW Shop in San Antonio, TX?

09-19-2003, 06:56 PM
Hi, y'all - question for you:

My 2001 330Ci car reaches the end of the full service/full maintenance warranty this November-ish (almost 36,000 miles - yikes!) and taking a car for service to the BMW dealer is NOT cheap.

So, does anyone know of a high quality, independent BMW shop in San Antonio, Texas? I do see some adverts in the yellow pages - but I would prefer a referral if someone here knows...

Thanks in advance,

Hey San antonio here as well, the only one i can recommend is
Rhine West they are on broadway, ask for Jon Or Dave(owner)
tell them Max from "northside refrigeration" sent you
They are pretty good guy's , im not saying that they are the cheapest but as far as knowledge etc.. goes there it in san antonio
also if you are just doing oil change's, you can bring it over here on the weekend and we can do it, it's only about a 10 minute job with the oil extractor and the part's from the dealer would be about 35.00
since the oil filter is on the top of the engine and the extractor suck's the oil out from under the hood we don't even have to jack the car up

Thanks, Max, for your recommendation on the shop...

I have thought about using an extractor when changing the oil (to save that BMW service charge). Might have to think more about it.

Thanks again.
