Need some local advice please!

Hello All,
I just moved to Columbia, MD from Orlando, FL. To make a long story short, I need to take my car into BMW for a service issue. Are there any particular dealers I should go to, or stay away from? Thanks in advance!

I like the northwest bmw service center in reistertown. Great techs that actually know what they are doing.

this should be the case at any dealership. Those car wash machines they have are the worst.

Tischer or rockville. Sometimes rockville will have cheaper prices than tischer on parts. Tischer is also a dinan dealer.

Thanks! I was actually interested in joining when I bought my BMW, but never got around to it. Looks like there is a good following here, so I will check it out
