    Hi all, Stealership wants to charge me $200+ diagnostic fee. Anyone have recommendations for a Los Angeles mechanic with morals who can help me with SMOG repairs? Thanks!

    I got sideswiped in one of the recent snow storms and need to get some feedback on bodyshops my insurance company is recommending. I prefer to go to one of my own choosing closer to home, but here are the ones Allstate recommended, at least for the inspection piece: PRESTIGE AUTO BODY 34 W...

    My 2009 128i convertible is coming up on 100k miles so I figure it's time to change the plugs. I checked getbmwparts and the OEM plugs are $16.25 (each?). Does anyone have recommendations on replacement plugs? Should I absolutely stick with BMW plugs or are there cheaper plugs which are just as...

    I'd like to clean up my E90 - it's got a bit scuffed over the years - dings on the edge of doors, a small bumper scuff from a garage, whirls from car washes, a few scraped rims. Has anyone had a good experience doing this with a Seattle-area body shop? This obviously isn't an insurance claim...

    Found both these shops on Bimmershops.com and was curious to know if anyone used them or not. They're convenient for me and would love any feedback anyone has regarding them. Thanks!
  7. 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...

    Okay, so with the CPO warranty expired on my beautiful F02, I decided that it might be wise to downgrade to a much, much lower car payment as well as into something that might not require taking out a second mortgage to maintain should something "happen." Aside from this 7, I've only had 5ers...

    I have been doing a lot of research on new tires for my 2011 BMW X5 Premium plus I have been reviewing many of the Review comments trying to compare apples to apples when one reviewer loves a tire and another hates the tire so it is tough, that being said. I live in PA where we have hot summers...

The previous owner also wrapped the originally Black Sapphire Metallic exterior with 3M Matte White wrap and covered the top of the car and side mirrors...

    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)...

    Hi Folks Am moving to DC next week and am looking to find a good workshop in the area. Any recommendations? I had a great guy in Charlotte who knew what he was doing, was honest and had good rates too. I like to keep up with all my preventive maintenance also and would be great to find the...
  14. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    I just moved to Marion, OH, which is about 40 miles north of Columbus, OH. There are two BMW dealers available for service, Kelly BMW and Midwestern BMW. I'm wondering if anyone can comment on or recommend either of these dealers, specifically for service. Kelly is about five miles further away...

    Hello all, I would like to ask for some information on brakes. Recently my "Brake Linnings" message came on and a few days later I started hearing some grinding. Obviously I need new brakes and more than likely rotors too, although I'm hoping maybe not. In any case, I'm planning to buy them...
