Exclamation Looking for mechanic in Tallahassee

Hello all,
moved here from Fort Lauderdale a year still haven't found solid BMW mechanic. I read all of the warnings about going to BMW dealer. Had a few bad experiences back home with them. Can't afford all of the labor markups from the shops....hear on scholarship cancer research after losing 7 family members to disease (dad last year). I'm not mechanically inclined at all but I’ve budgeted some money for repairs...main issues water pump, thermo. & serp. belt.

Thx in advance

Suggestion:

Join the BMWCCA (it`s CHEAP for what you get). Go to a local monthly meeting or two, and ask around as to who`s honest/competent. Word of mouth is the best advertising....
