Service in Rochester NY

I'm looking for any recommendations for a non dealer service location in Rochester NY. Trying to compare costs and possibly get some service outside of the BMW recommended service intervals i.e. off cycle oil changes. Anyone have a shop they would recommend?

ditto

im trying to find the same info. i need a clutch. don't seem like there's anyone here that has an answer for us. i do know of one place, browncroft garage, but there not a "bmw" shop. they work on many imports and have little experience on bmw's. (according to the owner) and, their pricing is not much better than the dealership. i was quoted 1300 from bmw of roc, and 1225 from browncroft.
in my humble opinion, a stock clutch in any 2 wheel rear drive car shouldn't top 800$ maybe im just old, but the last clutch i had changed back in 05 was 700 and change. and that was in a front wheel drive car!

Try www.bimrs.org. Also, Google "BMWCCA #####" where "#####" is your zip code. That'll tell you the name of the local chapter of the BMW Car Club of America. Join and ask for recommendations. Also, check the local Better Business Bureau (www.bbb.org).
