Hi Smote,

I go to SouthernBM in Moorabbin. With regards to keeping a consistent service record, it depends on what you'll gain from taking it there; and being the age that it is, i doubt it will contribute to resale value therefore it comes down to who you feel most comfortable with when it comes to maintenance. Even though i own other cars aside from BMWs, i still take them to SouthernBM because i just cannot be bothered with potentially getting fingered by mechanics anymore.

So take it to which ever place puts you most at ease when you discuss maintenance of your M with them. I find that mechanics that have good external suppliers of OEM parts as well as aftermarket bits are the best to suit all the enthusiasts needs.
