just go. there will always be mixed reviews about dealerships because it's mostly a matter of luck of who you deal with and who actually performs the service.

dealerships, such as BMW of SF, which are notorious for bad service should of course be avoided. but even then, it's just a freaking oil change.

If your car isnt lowered then you should be fine with the ramp. If it is, I highly highly recommend you tell your service adviser that.

You should probably bring some 2x4 and help your car up the ramp. lol At wheel works they do that.

if you have aftermarket rims, you should probably tell your SA that there isn't a scratch on them, just in case it gets messed up.

if you want to deal with a dealership that actually deals with modded cars often that is.

ask the people in norcal chat...most of them go to pleasanton, even though fremont is closer.

stevens creek BMW does a great job for me. You can request no car wash and do not park on the ramp. Plus they dont care if your car is modded or not.

i heard that once they finish they test drive your car for around 50 miles and then turn back the odometer and they'll burn your clutch and make you pay for it.

I've brought all my previous cars to BMW of Fremont. Just recently had my M5 in for some minor software fixes.

My normal SA is Albert Salcedo. He's a great guy and very reasonable. As with any place, treat them fair and they'll do the same. Please keep in mind that just because we have a BMW doesn't mean the SAs and Mechanics are our slaves and should bend over backwards to serve us. Albert has dealt with a lot of my "modded" cars and just let him know that they should drive it cautiously. If you want, he'll also do a walk-around to make sure your car gets returned in the same condition.

Tell him Jason with the M5 referred you. He'll take care of you, hopefully.

The WORST place I've ever dealt with was Stevens Creek. Both rude and snobby (sales, parts, & service).
