Hey guys.

I am going to ship my car 335i overseas next month.

Before shipping, I like to get some service done such as coolant flush, brake flush, manual transmission oil change and etc...

Which shop would you guys recommend ?

StricktlyBMW?

Germanauto?

any others?

parker at broad strokes is awesome. mookster recommended him on my other thread and i just sent it in for service there to fix my suspension problem. within 2 hours, he figured out EVERYTHING wrong w/ the install, incluidng a washer that was installed upside down. talk about attention to detail.

he quoted me for my 60k which i have 5k until.
oil change: 80
brake flush: 85
60k vehicle check: 90

does this sound about right for the 60k checkup?

You don't want OEM fluid in your brakes, everywhere else sure, but stock fluid is awful. Have him replace it with either ATE SuperBlue or Motul 600.
