My best service experiences have all come from Sports & Imports in Chesapeake, VA. My good friend Mike Robinson is both a BMWCCA club member and a bimmer racer. The labor prices in The District are sky high, $103.00, Mike's labor rates are $75.00 per hour. I get my oil changes, alignments and minor maintanence done in The District at J&F Motors on Four Mile Run in Arlington, VA. All major jobs get done at Sports & Imports, Chesapeake, VA. The bonus is that if I really want to I can do my own work Mike will allow me to use his shop and him less for labor if he helps me. My car is an advanced mileage vehicle with 190,000+ miles therefore I look at hourly labor wages as my first priority. Just my two and a half cents. Happy Motoring...
