How do I make an appointment?
Call us weekdays between 10am – 6pm (some days 11a-7p). We can schedule in person as well. All services are by appointment, and we will need to get all information necessary in order to calculate the time we need to service your BMW. Once we establish a date, we will call 2-3 days before your appointment with a final confirmation.
You’re welcome to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to request a phone call
What if I have an emergency?
If you can tow the vehicle, we can integrate it into our existing schedule. Most of the time we can turn around emergency repairs in 3-4 business days, often less, depending on what the issue is, and how quickly we can get the customer’s authorization to proceed. This emergency work comes unexpectedly so we work late nights on tow-ins to accommodate the schedule. Drop the key in the key box by the back door. We will make contact when we come in to let you know we are working on it. Feel free to email us details too. If you’re a new customer, email or call us with details and contact info.
There are various reasons this light would be on. Please check the tire pressures and read the instructions of your manual on how to set the pressures. On most BMW, the pressures are set between 35 to 39 pounds. Even if there is too much air, the light could come on because of the varying pressures from tire to tire. Another option is to check if there’s a nail in a tire. This can be done by spraying a mix of soap and water, and see where it’s bubbling out of. A nail can be removed and plugged. Please call to set up an appointment.
NO, they are not.Here is an example of an oil filter installed by a Quick lube shop. (filter on the right) And a picture of the correct filter for your BMW installed by us.
The shriveled up one on the right is what they install at a Quick lube shop.Clearly it doesn’t compare to the correct one on the left. It is shriveled, and it doesn’t even look the same as the other one.
It may be cheaper to go to Quick lube shop but they often use substandard parts that will damage your engine, they strip the drain plugs, and they use recycled oil.
They both have 5,000 miles on them. (The recommended oil change interval for all BMW’s)
Over time, air conditioning systems lose their power. Sometimes, all that is needed is a recharge of the system [freon recharge] or a repair of a small leak in the system. In other cases, the problem is more complex. There are 2 fill valves that the A/C machine hooks up to – they tend to leak freon over time and are replaced during the A/C recharge service. During the recharge process, a dye goes into the system, which helps us identify future leaks. It seems no matter what model you have, they all tend to lose freon over time. We see most cars get a refill about every 3 years. In any event, whether you have an older car or or a new vehicle with a computerized A/C system, we can get your air running col again.
In many cases, this is not an actual steering system problem. Since there is a physical connection between the wheels and your steering wheel, and your hands spend a lot of time on the steering wheel, this is often where we sense problems first. In many cases, it is a dented rim or other wheel or brakes issue that is causing these vibrations. Some of these are quite inexpensive and fast repairs, so it makes sense to have it diagnosed by a professional mechanic. We can figure out exactly what is causing that strange vibration, and get you back to a smooth driving experience.
There are several components in your braking system, including rotors and pads, that could require service or replacement. Sometimes, it is a very simple and fast maintenance that is needed to get everything lined up and working smoothly. Since brakes are such an important safety feature, it’s always best to get your brakes looked at by a professional as soon as you notice something strange.
Our philosophy is to provide the best quality service and attention to detail at a fair and honest price
