Mechanic/Shop in Seattle area?

Hello all,

My 2009 E90 is getting costly to maintain. Car has always been serviced at BMW Seattle or Bellevue since new but I'd like to know alternatives.

Eastside Bavarian is a common recommendation but I'd like to hear some others if anybody here knows. Thanks.

Honestly I think the Eastside repair shops are way too expensive. Its perfectly understandable since they have more overhead based on their customer base but for quick diagnostics and fix I use mobile mechanic who specialize in BMW. And for any major work I would recommend this guy and make the trip. His pricing is very good:

I have the same year car and donít know if you have the 328 or 335 but if its the N51 engine, you also have the SULEV warranty that will help.

Hello,

New to the forum. Snohomish European automotive services is a great shop! Bit of a drive, but worth the lack of hassle in service!

I ended up just getting the work done at BMW Seattle. I was able to negotiate down the price quite a bit, and the car needed a bunch of stuff done so they needed it for 2 wks. With the dealer you get a loaner car and don't have to worry about paying for a rental along with the hassle of pickup up/dropping off said rental.
