hi there ... we just moved from Greensboro, NC to Raleigh, NC and I need some help with BMW dealers. We dealt with Crown BMW in Greensboro and they were fantastic! There is Leith and Performance BMW here. Which one do the locals prefer for quality and service?

Thanks!!

if you car is still under warranty/maintenance plan my preference is performance. have had fuel injectors replaced at each place plus regular service. its all the same in the end.

I now have 78k so I go to my indy master tech for maintenance. buy tischer oem parts.

I usually end up at Leith cause it's slightly more convenient but have used both and don't really have any complaints with either. I do seem to get a little more pressured about various services and repairs at Leith for what that's worth but I just let them give me their sales pitch for why I need to pay them $130 to replace my air filter and take it home to do it myself. Other than that, service has been fine every time I've been to either.

If you're interested in a good independent shop there's one right down the street from Leith on Capital called Carolina Import & Domestic that has always done me right and usually beats the dealer by several hundred $. No weekend hours though.

I've never been to Leith but have definitely had a fantastic experience with Performance BMW in Chapel Hill. Got a free intake valve cleaning from them that generally costs people money out of warranty (supposedly they had to work pretty hard with BMW to get this covered). They've never given my car a wash like they're "supposed" to but that's probably good news considering the kind of wash it would likely get there. Never have had issues getting a loaner either, which seems to be a big plus considering some of the threads I've seen in this forum about other BMW dealers and their loaner issues (not Leith in particular).

And if out of warranty and looking for a good indy, I took my car to Bimmer Performance Center and had a good experience with them as well.

As for dealers, Performance seems to be the place to go. I haven't heard many good things about Leith. My limited experience with Performance has been great and most others rave about them.

As for independent mechanics, some of the top ones around here are Bimmer Performance Center in N. Raleigh, BFI in W. Raleigh/Cary and Import Motor Works in Cary. Shadetree Mechanics in far N. Raleigh is great, too, but I don't know if they work on the newer BMWs and they can be difficult to get a hold of. I heard of a new shop opening called Luxury AutoWorks on Capital Blvd.

Welcome to the area.

I've had an excellent experience with Performance since I started going there. They're open and honest with repair guidance, they try really hard to excel and if they screw up they go above and beyond to fix the issue... great people and service - well recommended!

hello everyone, do you guys know any one who can wrap my window trims in charlotte? this is the only mod I am trying to do at the moment. I already bought the black vinyl wrap from shadowlinetrim.com but I need someone to do the job. I went to speed styles and they quote me $250, I think its too much. Thanks.

Looks like something went wrong with Crossroads... I checked out the fb page and it looks like C&C this month has turned into a clusterf*ck.

Anyone out there know what the plan is for July?

Dude, just do it yourself. I bout the same stuff, no experience with vinyl and it took me a couple hours and came out great. Their vinyl is really easy to work with, very stretchy and forgiving. Be patient, take your time and it will come out fine and about $250 cheaper!

I think Performance Chassis in Cary rolls fenders. I've always used Mark for alignments and he does top notch work.

We arent sure yet how frequent its going to be, it all depends on the first turnout.

This Saturday the 29th in downtown Charlotte so its a central hub for everyone

521 E. Morehead Street
Charlotte, NC 28202

7pm!!


It is a business parking deck but at that time is should be dead and the deck is away from the main road wont attract cops as long as we behave of course. Ive done photoshoots here so i know its a cool place.

Heres the Layout:



The red X entrance is not low car friendly but if you follow the teal, its flat all the way in!!

If you have any questions, just ask away!!

Confirm as well to see if this is going so we know who to expect!

It has been a few months since I attended, but am hoping to be there with the M3.

Last I heard, it is still at Waverly. There was some discussion about it moving to the movie theater, but I think that fell through.

Oh really? I'll have to look at the Facebook page again. I thought crossroads was on and off and back on. Now it must be off lol.

Wellardmac nice! Never see enough M3's there!

Thanks! I've been trying to keep the car clean all week (hard to do with this weather!) so that I could attend.

As for the location. A kid was basically trying to hijack the group and send it to Crossroads. He was not given permission for us to meet there - in fact the owner contacted the police in his frustration to try and stop him from directing the group to meet there. Any cars that go to Crossroads will be met by Cary PD.
