Smile reputable BMW shops in Bay Area?

was wondering if anyone could post Bay Area/Norcal BMW technicians who are reputable and honest. it doesnt hurt either if they are trustworthy and have competitive pricing either. just don't feel like going to the dealer and getting ripped off anymore.

Thanks dude! I'll check them out. This was regarding an oil filter housing gasket that leaks. How much you think he would charge for something like that?

Inside SF, Phaedrus does professional work. It's cheaper than the dealer, but I would not call it 'cheap'. You come here for the reliability.
