Need a good indy in Dallas

Hi all! I've always found great people in the E46 forum when I needed them, now I'm hoping the members in the Dallas area can help one more time. My neice just moved to Dallas with her Mini and it needs some work. Can someone help me find a good, honest indy that she can go to? I'm a big believer in supporting these independant "corner" shops vs. the overpriced, comissioned dealerships. Any recommendation would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

In the north Ft. Worth area, there's Bavarian Motor Sports (BMS) in Haltom City. John works out of the same building as Jeffrey's Automotive and specializes in BMWs. 817-498-3477

Has anybody heard anything good about Louden Motors (in Dallas) or Auto Hans (in Addison)? Do they specialize in BMWs or just in "german cars"?

Did you ever get a response? I have used Louden....they seem to be German car specialists...not BMW.

Hands down Tom tran. He owns master tune up in garland. (972) 494-0003. He by far has the best prices and knows german cars inside out.

Hi, revitalizing this thread to get new data. My Aunt lives in Dallas with a E65 7-series, and I'm looking for a good Indy for this vehicle.

Thumbs up Spec Motorsports in McKinney

I have used them 3-4 times for both routine work and some troubleshooting of gremlins. They did a very good job of isolating the problem and verifying the cause. Very fair charging and good service. I will go back.

I just purchased some Koni FSD shocks, and plan to have Spec install them.

Had Brad and Jeff @ Spec install my Koni shocks and work on a flickering taillight issue. Both guys are really nice, and they do great work. It's also nice they're close to my home. They even took me home and re-delivered the car when complete. I'll definitely be returning to them for future service.

Anyone know what happened to Spec Motorsports in McKinney?

Their phone has been disconnected and their website has shut down. I know they were closed in August to help some racers prep their cars, but it appears they've now closed shop.

I own my own body shop in Dallas....Concours Paint & Body. We did John Roberts BMW for 27 years before Mr. Roberts passed and sold to AutoNation. Please feel free to give us a holler at 972.247.4700.

Thanks,

Thanks. I went to them today for an oil change. Very nice folks, and nice lobby and shop. They're not close to me, but aren't too far from my work.
