Tri-State Stealership Experiences

So I recently just bought a '08 E90 335i that has an existing Maintenance Plan (not a CPO warranty) until September 2012 -- I've recently installed a COBB tune and have a K&N drop-in filter, BMS occ & am now strongly considering adding a Helix FMIC to my car. I just wanted to know if people could share their opinions on tri-state dealers and their experiences when getting their cars serviced?? Dealers that gave you trouble and that I should avoid & then dealers that didn't hassle you about your mods and did the maintenance with no trouble. Thanks

What maintenance do you need done that you are worried about? Brakes/rotors I wouldn't worry about. Anything with the engine is iffy

since i bought the car w/ the maintenance plan, i'm hoping to at least get 1 oil change out of it, then the brakes (rotors/pads) before it expires.

BMW on Route 73 in Mount Laurel NJ is a pretty decent dealership, as far as dealerships go. Service guy Nick Knows his S*#t about cars there and they have worked with me on price negotiation in the past.

did you have any mods on?? since i have the cobb i'm not worried about that, i can just reflash it back to the stock map. the only "obvious" mods will be the fmic & the occ


regardkessm after the service plan expires there are plenty of places i'll be able to pick from to maintain the car -- rogue engineering, ak motorsports, autocouture, vac, etc

thats not true, its a $250 transfer fee. it cant be done without you paying it.

i have the same thing on my 2010, and i bought the car without a CPO because of it.

yeah you can transfer but when i call bmw n/a they give me a different number that handles the extended warranty, and they said they cant do it without the original person who got the warranty, which is not me.....so im stuck
