Question Philly mechanic?

Hi, can somebody recommend a good independent BMW mechanic in and around Philly? I did a search and found Bavarian Specialties in King of Prussia, has anybody dealt with them?

Not sure who's good in town, but I heard there's a decent shop about 3 miles over the Tac-Pal bridge in Jersey. Stay on 73, he's on the right, and is an independent.

Looks like yo7u got a bit of snow out there. Wish I were home !

Mike Yaskin at Bavarian Specialties is excellent. I've been using him for a year for my E36 M3 and my wife's e46. The outside of the shop isn't much to look at, but inside the work area is clean and there are always interesting cars being worked on (race prepped E30 M3s, 850csi, Z8, etc.)

I used to go to Otto's but their rates are so much higher and I really don't need to pay for a crappy wash job.

There is a great place in Kennett Square (route 1 just west of 202) called Bavarian Motorsport. The guy who runs it, John I believe used to be head tech for Ottos BMW as his father used to own the dealership. Very good and reasonable pricing.
