A good shop I take my E90 to is Performance Autowerk in Dublin. They are efficient and competitively-priced. Ask for Evan!

Has anyone gotten serviced at San Leandro Auto BMW Service? They got great reviews on Yelp and their prices seem pretty fair.

Hey guys,
I have an MHD flash and had my charge tube replaced because it was cracked. The smog shop here in Livermore said it had to be CARB certified, even though I told him it didn't. Not sure if true or not

Can anyone recommend a smog shop that will "look the other way" and just smog my car?

Defib applied.

Anyone know of a good window tinting place that has dealt with the issues of tinting E90s? And if any of those shops has solved the issue of the tint being scratched?

I've heard good things about Alphawerks and the guy owns an e92. He also does car wrapping.

As for scratching, you need to get this http://www.tintprotector.com/bmw/

Not up to date, but if they're still around 8 years later that's generally a good sign. Just ask what you need and where, and people can post recommendations.

Has anyone done any work with N54 Exclusive Garage located in the bay area? Seems like its a couple guys servicing out of their garage. Their yelp page has perfect reviews, but there aren't many. Planning on some major maintenance work: Oil Pan Gasket, VCG, coding, idle surge diagnostics.

I have not yet. I plan to do my upgrades through them. Their pricing is fantastic and they really know the N54 platform.

Let me know how the work ends up. I've been trying to schedule something with them, but they seem pretty busy. Haven't been able to get a call back.

If you don't mind me asking, what type of upgrades are you doing?

If you're in East Contra Costa, I'd recommend Tim Helms who owns Dent King has done excellent work on several of my cars, including my BMW and MB.

Not sure of his exact service area but you can reach him at 925-323-1045 to find out. Here's a link to the Yelp reviews for him: https://www.yelp.com/biz/dent-king-brentwood.
