Where to fix BMW in So Cal?

Hi all, I'm living in Riverside, Southern CA.
My 2006 325i oil is leaking. Not sure where is the leak, but some morning I saw a load amount of oil on the car bottom ground.
So I would like to bring my car to a shop in So Cal that can fix this issue. I definitely dont want to bring my car to BMW dealer, its pricey. If you know any shop in So Cal, please let me know. Thanks

My wife's friend, (has 4 BMWs), recommends The Wheel Supply in Walnut, if you're willing to make the drive...

Hey jzchen,

If your looking for a well reliable independent shop you should take a look at either Avus Autosport or the M Shop they are both reliable independent shops.The only downside is, with the M shop they are based by appointments and Avus is not.

You mean the Avus in Glendale?
Are they pricey?

Avus is a Dinan dealer. I called them once to ask for a quote on something. It was more expensive than the dealer/MSRP price from Dinan. I don't know about the other one, but thank you for the suggestions!

Oil change at The Wheel Supply was supposed to be $90 for Mobil 1. I told my wife I'd do the oil change for her. They were pretty cheap when she had her brake fluid done though, and I can't argue with her friend's 4 BMW experience. (They have another car in their garage that could probably give a Bugatti Veyron a run for it's money, a Porsche with 1000 hp, featured in Heavy Hitters.)
