Autoscpoe in Dallas

Has anyone had any experiences or impressions from Autoscope foreign care care in Dallas?

I'm looking for a good service dept and from what i've read the BMW dealerships aren't the best bet. Anyone have a good SA they go to?

Thanks!

Autoscope Park Cities is the bomb. Talk to Steve or Carson and tell them Dan V. sent you. They will take amazing care of you and your car.

Just got an oil change from them yesterday, $60 special with LL-01 oil and filter. They washed the car too, which was nice.

Only weird thing is it took them 1.5 hrs, but meh. Thought they were decent people and you can't beat that price!

I would recommend them. They did a good job on my e60m5 and cayenne turbo which had the engine pulled to replace turbos, etc.

Nope didn't hear of the M5 being destroyed. All I can go by is personal experiences over the last 3 years and my relationship the Service Mgr and my SA... Curious about the story however?

Can Autoscope do the warranty work on new BMW's? I've always been about choices for sure but also like the loaners I get from the dealer when the car is in for something....

Pretty sure only a BMW dealer can do warranty work. FWIW I use Autoscope for all my non warranty/ off-schedule oil changes / track inspections.

I want to say $110, but I can't recall. I usually get a brake flush for the track at the same time and a track inspection, so they are all priced together.
