Ok, so the 3rd place was a charm They just earned a new customer. I found this place through a friend and the guy's name did not ring a bell at first, but it turned out I know the guy the owns the shop. After telling them what i been through, they waive the diagnostic fee. Just as suspected it was a failing thermostat. The first shop was charging me $302. These guys charged me $240 for parts and labor and with the peace of mind that the job was done honestly. I wish BMW of San Diego could of diagnosed the car and given me the results and what cost was going to be. Not that I was gonna have them repair it. I will never go back to them! Anyhow, thanks for the replies. The car is running flawlessly i can tell the difference in performance and no more rough idling. Also, the choke or hiccup that was going on when driving between 30-40 mph is no longer happening.
