I went to RMP before posting this. My car "jerks" when accelerating at low speed, i brought it in the guy drove it around for 2 min and said i need to rebuild my transmission for 2300$. I wanted to kno if there are other good garages around so i could get a 2nd opinion before i commit to a rebuild. Plus I can get a used transmission for a little over 1000$ so unless installing it on the car costs another 1300$ i think im better off not rebuilding it.

+1 for Bimmersport. They fixed my transmission leak and saved me quite a bit as well.

bimmex. Also sometimes software upgrades will fix it. Take to BMW and ask to update your software for hard shift from 2 to 1. This is common for 7's. Might also want to grab warranty like highroad.

I've always had good service at RMP. You should talk to Rocco about other options too. He has sources for used parts if that is the route you want to go. The problems with a used one is it could go at any time too.

I've been to Techmax too and was very satisfied with the service. The shop is bigger than RMP.

Quote from dealer

Replace 3 injectors - 700.00
replace 6 spark plugs - 715.00

Wasn't sure whether to laugh or get mad when I saw the cost of changing my plugs.
So Techmax or bimmersport?

Mein Auto: E350BlueTec, Jetta TDI
Indy shop in North York, Toronto

My 2010 335d needed an oil change recently and it had 98,000 KM. The BMW dealers quoted $270~340 for the oil and filter change plus refill of the DEF.

I found and Indy on the MBWorld forum called ACCEL Auto Service in North York operated by Igor who specializes in German vehicles.

He did the oil change and filter change for me using OEM oil and filter for $140.00.
I bought a couple of 2.5 gallons DEF from Canadian Tire at $19.98 each and refill the DEF myself!

A week after that I decided to get ACCEL to do the 60,000 KM service for my 2011 VW Jetta TDI.
This major service includes the DSG tranny, oil change, Diesel fuel filter change and also air and cabin filter.

The VW dealer quoted over $700.00+ but ACCEL did the job with OEM parts and oil for $509.00.

So far so good and and both jobs were handled professionally. I will continue using ACCEL for the BMW and VW.
Once my ML is out of warranty I'll send it to ACCEL for service.

Anyone used McNally Auto Service?
I used to get my MB serviced there following the factory warranty. On mt E60 I had them inspect a steering directional faulty indicator(not sure the technical name) and they charged me $200 to tell me it will cost $2500.00 to repair. Those prices are not much different to a dealer on BMW's

Gave them a call, going there tonight. Igor seemed nice and helpful (BTW he is the boss) as he put it
