Markert Motor Works is excellent. They are in Lawrenceville. 5-year warranty on all work they perform. I had to have them warranty an OFHG and it was completely hassle-free, and performed quickly.

Flyin' Wrench is good too, located in Kennesaw.

OTP Automotive in Winder. Very honest, and frequently goes out of their way to help people out.

Solomotorsports is good as well, located in Norcross. I had my turbos done here. 2-year warranty IIRC.

For alignments/wheels/tires, Gran Turismo East. Extremely knowledgeable, but a little pricey. I paid $150 for a 4-wheel alignment.

Bavarian Motor Sports in Suwanee. Harold is great!

Also, Optimum Auto Repair in Chamblee. Takis is a good guy. Not a BMW only shop, but good work and reasonable prices.

I realize you’ve probably resolved your issue but others might benefit. I once used Arnold, a mobile mechanic to help me with an issue when I lived in *Atlanta. I contacted him about coming out to Madison, an hour east but I found a very qualified guy locally. Arnold’s number is (678) 468-7844‬, I highly recommend him as he’s quick, uses BMW parts and works around your schedule.

So Markert for general servicing and for mods, right?

What about collision? Just got lightly rear-ended in the M3. Can't see anything, but wanted to get it checked out just in case. I heard Gerber or Abra in Buckhead.

I recently had a bad experience with Markert, had so much hope in them and they let me down.

First off it was way overpriced, I spent about 1k on fluid changes and steering wheel shaft replacement ($365). I supplied all parts so this is just labor. It took over 2 weeks for them to complete the work and after the steering wheel controls donít even work. They were working before so something must not be plugged in. Also it was hard to get in touch with them, I even called several times after to tell them about the steering wheel and no call back ever. Itís been about a month or two now.

Wow! Sorry to hear about that.

Yeah, I'm trying to find a good place for aftermarket work and one for just general servicing.
