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.
Was the dealer you went to the one in Kearney Mesa, or a different one? What's the shop you found that was good?
