Should I bring my bmw to a non-bmw repair shop for maintenace and things?

Should I bring my bmw to a non-bmw repair shop for repair and maintenance (wheel-alignment, oil change and such) or is it a bad idea?

A great mechanic can do anything.If you want to keep getting ripped off by the Stealership be my guest, but I never go to the dealership unless its warranty related.

Better to find someone who specializes in BMWs, especially newer ones that are extremely complicated.

+2. I've found a good independent BMW shop in my area for all non warranty work.
