St. Louis BMW Service

I know this is an older thread, but for future reference ...

I used to take my car to Plaza and every time they kept it for a week and couldn't diagnose my issue and replaced something that didn't need to be replaced and it cost me thousands. This includes the walnut blasting (which I did actually need, but they overcharged me for it).

This past week, I took it to Bavarian for the first time. Not only did they diagnose my problem in minutes, they fixed it the same day and were extremely reasonable on price.

I didn't have them do the walnut blasting, but I know that they offer that service and it's much much cheaper than Plaza.

I'm so happy to have my car performing at the top of it's game again!

Ouch $700 is terrible. Several guys on these forums (around the country) have posted $350 for the exact same service. Hopefully they have down in price since you had this performed...

You can try Bradley Motor Werke, they are really good and not bad on prices. The only time I got a walnut blast done was covered under warranty on West County BMW.

thanks for the replies, I have heard bad things about Bradely's. I think I might just try and tackle it myself. Would anyone want their car done in the near future?

Yeah I have all the equipment. Have done it on two personal N54s and a few friends as well. It's a time consuming PITA job but easy enough once you get the hang of it.
