Mein Auto: 745Li
Houston,Tx Folks

Just wanted to share this, I been a member on here since July 2012 and have a 03 745LI I got from Advantage BMW nice car, but after I purchased I wanted to make sure it was good to go, so a friend of mine referred me to North Houston Beemer( 22820 I-45 NORTH STE. 1-A SPRING, TEXAS 77373) a side shop that works on BMWs, MINI COOPERS instead of me getting taken to the bank from the DEALER, make a long story short my car has been to these guys a couple times and they have saved me some money BIG TIME, like today i recently put some 22's on my car a couple weeks ago and I had NTB put them on and they been making a knocking noise on the right back tire, i brought it back to them and they could not find where the noise was coming from, so I was thinking about bringing it to the DEALER but I went to my friends at NORTH HOUSTON BEEMER and you know what it was the fools at NTB didn't have my rotor tight on the back wheel so they tightned it up no noise now, now if i would have went to the DEALER who knows what they would have told me, what I'm saying if you live in houston,tx try these guys I trust their work, they have worked on my engine also and took the time out to show me everything and show me pics of before and after, and today they didn't charge me for nothing, i offered them lunch they still declined that, had to send them a shout out for taking care of me today, i was thinking the worst before I borught it there, but all in all I am pleased at their work and honesty

So, you take your car to a BMW motorcycle shop? The brake rotor is held in place by the wheel bolts. So, I guess you are saying that the wheel was loose.

"Beemer" = BMW motorcycle. "Bimmer" = BMW automobile

I am glad you figured that out. I just think it funny that shops dont even know the correct meaning of Beemer or Bimmer, or they just think everyone is more familiar with the term Beemer. I prefer to think I was being facetious rather than a "smart ass".

Second thread where you are aggressive towards members that I have read today. Play nice or don't play at all.

Passing the word around

I've heard good things about that shop. Another good shop is m performance out in spring and reasonably priced.
