I went with an independent shop near where I lived and couldn't be happier.

Do some research on Yelp or local business reviews. Talk to the owner/manager to gauge his expertise before taking it in.

I did the whole shebang: transfer case, transmission, engine, coolant, brakes, suspension (replacement), alignment plus whatever else that's required in the 60K maintenance.

Here's a "guideline" for what is recommended. It's not the same as BMW's.
