Atlanta area shops - complete power failure

Hey guys,
I have a 2007 E92 328. The car is completely dead, no locks, no radio, no lights, no start, nothing. I tried jumping it with no luck, I check the battery with a multi meter and it is fine.

I'm assuming this is my issue:

that being said, does anyone have any recommendations on a shop I can have it towed to in the Atlanta area for this issue?

Thanks,
Simon

Garage List
Before you do that, have you tried jumping it with something stronger, like a stand-alone battery jumper / booster?

Very common on E90s done like 6 customers cars including my 335I,I've had to change the distribution block and the power cable that routes from the battery to the front......

Hey guys,
Just an update - I did end up taking my car to solo motorsports to get repaired. I have to say I'm extremely satisfied with the quality of work, how quick it was finished, and the price.

I was worried about various interior parts going back together OK, since replacing the battery cable seems like a lot would need to be disassembled. I'm pretty anal about that kind of stuff and there is no way you can tell anything was ever done.

I highly recommend these guys for any work needed in the Atlanta area and I wil surely use them again in the future for any repairs. But hopefully I won't have to.

Glad you got it fixed. I've used solo motorsports in the past too and they've been great as well.
