Any Recommendations in San Francisco for WaterPump replacement 335i?

As per subject, hopefully a good and reasonably priced shop in the city?

Thanks

I know its a drive down from SF, but I had mine replaced a few weeks ago at BR racing for $1035. Did a good job and turn around was quick.

I think the parts alone are around 500-600 dollars.

Yah, I bring my car there for all the modding stuff, but for more routine stuff I would rather that drop my car off and BART home to San Francisco if I don't have to.

If it doesn't have to be in SF, I know of an excellent BWW certified mechanic with a shop in Walnut Creek. He uses OEM parts, with reasonable rates. I can forward his info is you're interested.

Yah I got a super reasonable quote from these guys, considering they are in the city and their reputation.

+1 on Phadreus. Never the cheapest, but cheaper and better reviews than SF BMW. All my repairs fixed right the 1st time.

Late hours and free loaners. Once you see the loaners, you'll understand why they're free :-), but at least you don't have the extra pain of arranging rides from friends.
