Anyone have a current opinion of Dan Martin's shop? Seems most of the comments are a couple of years old.

the inspection 2 is just a over priced joke unless your doing a valve adjustment on a s54. a 60k I2 to bmw is oil, micro and air filters for non m cars. xi may get transfercase changed depending if the fault is present. then the dealer with sell you plugs, fuel filter and diff fluid, possible trans flush. m3 valve adj is easy but they get your for the shims. i am just giving you the dealers pov not sure how the indys do the inspections.

BMC automotive in Chantilly is great. Owned by a master BMW mechanic, great rates, and very friendly. Love that they will walk you through issues with the car on the lift.

BMC is really good at diagnosing complicated issues like convertible top faults.


RRT is the place to go for race prepping or mods.

My Ride: 2004 BMW M3
Hey guys,

I want to get inspection 2 on my 04 LSB M3. I've read some good things about At Speed Motorsports in MD and Autoscandia in VA. I called both places and At Speed Motorsports quoted me $1300 plus additional $150 for valve adjusments and Autoscandia quoted me for $1450 as well. I've never used either one of the shops for any work. I'll appreciate it if you guys can help me out as to where I should take the car and where they'll actually take proper care of the car.

Thanks
