if you can make a trip in camberley. COuple senior techs from sytner have setup on their own and seem to know their stuff. Certainly a better option than dealer prices

Used them a few times always found them approchable and a well of good information. Work carried out was prompt and well priced. If not for the small prints in warranty and prepaid main service I would be taking it to them for these bits.

The guy previously worked on my old e46 when he was at dealership

Why isn't there a sticky listing recommended BMW independants region by region? I'm sure this forum has enough knowledge for that.

most likely as it would be a contradiction of forum rules due to advertising when not a sponsor

Oh

You're probably right but surely its us, the customers/users, that will be recommending them?

Birds Autos are obviously very good too, but for a brake fluid change I felt just a few too many miles away.
