Clutch Replacement in Raleigh NC

I need to have my clutch replaced and am looking for shop recommendations. I'd really like to have this shop be my go-to shop for things outside of my skill and tool range. Has anyone done a clutch replacement? What prices should I expect?

Bimmer Performance Center is probably one of the best shops in the area, but they're not a whole lot cheaper than the dealer. I also used to go to Import Motor Werks in Cary when I lived in the Triangle. They're a bit cheaper than BPC and I've never had an issue, though I'm very specific with the front desk person and I call in a tech if it doesn't seem like they understand what I'm asking for. I don't think it'd be a problem for a clutch change, but for alignments I'm a bit particular. They also have loaners at IMW, which is nice.

I got a hold of BPC and got a quote. The price is not too bad - 1/2 the dealer. I really like that they specialize in BMWs as well. I think I'm going with them. Plus they're a bit closer to me also.

Good deal, sounds like you can't go wrong.

IMW used to be a BMW-only shop, the name escapes me now, it was 8 or 9 years ago. One of the coolest things that I liked about it was that you got old, well maintained BMWs as loaners. The first loaner I got was an E39 530i with 190k miles but it still drove tight and smooth, pretty awesome.

That's really cool. I'll have to check them out in the future.

Got my car back from BPC. I'm extremely impressed with the service. They knew how to solve every concern that I had. Everything went smoothly - no dreaded "Whoops, there's a huge issue" call in the middle of it. I asked them to inspect some specific parts for replacement and they were honest about each one - all the parts I asked about were good and they didn't try to get me to replace them.

I came in there looking for a clutch replacement and left exactly that. Really great work.
