Didnt know there was a group in Vegas

Glad I found this thread.
Currently living in Vegas.....and usually back in Orange County or Los Angeles 1-2x a month.
Purchase a CPO 2007 335i less than 6 months ago from Mckenna in Los Angeles.
Montego blue. Pretty much stock.

I see a lot of negative remarks regarding Desert and Henderson BMW dealership. Wow. I was planning to take my car to Desert for a Coolant flush,drain,and fill. on this coming week.
$179.99 a little too high?


What independent shop do you guys recommend in Vegas (I'm in the North West area)?
I've one, Southwestern Bmw while doing a google search?

Any other respectfully shop out there?

I plan attend one of the meets in the coming weeks...

Cheers
William

+1 on SW Bimmers. They do quality work and are incredibly honest.

FYI don't go dessert BMW of Las Vegas off Sahara...took my car last week to change out my drivers side blinker bulb since its under warranty. Anyway I'm almost sure that you have to remove the wheel to get to it, so yesterday I'm detailing my car and noticed one of my wheel lug bolts are missing. Called them and they said they couldn't do nothing! What bs, I told the only reason I didn't noticed right away is because you guys washed it for me. But I wash and detail my car weekly so I would notice it if it was always missing! Screw them you buy a 50k car and this is the kind of service they give you! I know to replace the lug bolt is cheap, but still they should own up to their mistake.

Thats exactly why I do my own work even if its under warranty. Taking it in for a light bulb? Come on now. You should have replaced it yourself. That one dollar light bulb cost you more in time and grief with that place than what it was worth. Now you lost that time AND have to replace the lug yourself.
