    Living in Marblehead - Just purchased 2012 328i xdrive. Does anyone have any recommendations about any independent shops, within a half hour for regular maintenance? There are so many BMWs, most seem go to dealer in Peabody. Love to support a reliable Independent shop.
  2. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    Hi everyone, I'm currently traveling in Southern California with my 2002 E65 and am having some trouble with the cooling system I'd like to have looked at. Does anyone have any recommendations for a good reasonably priced independent repair shop in SoCal? I have AAA so I can have it towed...
  3. General BMW Questions
    General question for anybody with experience with BMW's Certified Pre-Owned system. Earlier this year I bought a certified pre-owned F30 328i. I commute a significant distance currently and am now past the factory 50k service plan as well as being into the post 50k CPO warranty. I love the car...
  4. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hello everyone, Does anyone know of a good independent mechanic at or near Jersey City? I used Bimmershops to get a list of indies near me, but it would be useful to get recommendations from people here. If it helps, I am not looking to install after market performance parts at all. Just...

    I'm moving to Northern Virginia in a couple of months. I have a 2006 325xi (E90). Can any one recommend a good independently owned and operated service shop? Thanks.
  7. California
    Anybody have any good recommendations? BMW dealership wants ~$1500 to fix my X3's check engine light... VANOS solenoid and thermostat stuck open. So I guess I should look for a good German mechanic near me...
  8. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Been a member for a while but mainly lurking on all the good DIY stuff on this board. Did a search for independent BMW shops but the only thread I found was from 2006 so thought I would ask the question again. Does anyone have any recommendations for independent BMW service shops in Portland...
  9. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    The clutch on my E46 330 finally gave up after 147,000 (my girlfriend's recent surprise attempt at a full-throttle clutch drop probably didn't help, but it was on it's way out anyway). I live in Portland, ME and am looking for a good independent mechanic to have the job done. Any suggestions?
  10. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    I am looking at purchasing a 2007 335i and wanted to get a PPI done before I dove in. Is there a good place to get one that anyone recommends in Denver? I know there are a couple BMW Dealerships, but thought an Indy repair place might be better (If dealer is best, that is fine as well)...
  11. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    My 2004 X3 is due for its 75k scheduled maintenance soon. I had purchased the 6 year extended service warranty, so this will be my first service not covered by BMW. I am contemplating taking it to an independent shop, but I do not know the reputations of any local independent mechanics. Does...

    Could anyone recommend a good independent mechanic in or near Boulder CO? I've got an '02 E46 if that matters at all. Thanks!
