Patrick BMW Review

Just wanted to share my recent experience at Patrick BMW. I had my PPK installed there last week. They were by far the cheapest (1 hour of labor charged) in Chicago (I got a quote from every dealer) and Matt Page was pleasant to deal with. He even mentioned that he doesn't mind cars with mods such as downpipes and exhausts.

Now it's time to slap on the DP. I think it's pretty much A&L or A-Spec here in Chicago for mod installations. Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Matt is an awesome guy and definitely looks out for those looking to mod... Always look to him if I have to get any dealer work done.

they say that until you bring your car in for warranty work and not just maintenance...

Heard Aspec is around $240 depending on how smoothly the install is.

I always was going with my BMW's to Fields but last time they pissed me of, making long story short I was getting vibration while I was driving and they refused to serviced my car saying" you a aftermarket wheels and brakes, go back to stock and come back" wtf. I drove to Patrick and they fix it within an hour, strongly recommend them.

Dubwerks in Libertyvill has done most of my mods, except for my LSD, which was put on by fall line motorsports of buffalo grove

A-Spec will do it right away, i was told that A&L needs you to drop off your car and you will have it next day, but this might have changed

Thumbs up for BMW Schaumburg. My water pumped died while I was there to buy some coolant dreaded red thermometer icon and limp mode. Matt took care of me and I had the car back by the afternoon.

I was actually going to go there and look at a used bmw before I picked up the used 335 from Grossinger Autoplex. Good to know.
