Yea i agree. And like you i don't know of any good mechanic around here because i never had to take it to a mechanic either. Does anyone recommend a mechanic that specializes with bmws cars in the greater Boston area?

I can't help you out personally there, I've had my car for maybe seven months and haven't had to have any service performed on it yet (other than an oil change I did myself in the driveway, and I gotta glue the passenger side door seal back on).

A head swap is a fairly involved job with lots of labor. A good independent mechanic will lay out several "treatment options" for you and the costs and benefits of each, along with an approximate price tag.

Good luck.
