BMW independent garage in Kitchener / Waterloo

Hello All,

A friend of mine is looking at buying an e90 335i from Grand River BMW in KW. I've recommended that he takes it by an independent shop for an inspection prior to buying.

Any recommendations on a shop that specializes in BMW or German cars in general?

He is looking at the 2009 335xi m sport. Any comments or things to watch out for on that year please feel free to post.

Yes I realize this is e46fanatics, but didn't feel like registering on another board.

edit: a friend of mine (with a 6 series) recommended Prestige Auto. Any feedback?

The boys at grand river are good. If you don't feel comfortable take it to auto cube on Victoria street

Grand river BMW is awesome, Moose in the service department is as honest as they come. I've worked @ car dealerships for the last 8 years and they don't seem like crooks to me.

+1 with Roman at Autocube.
-1 at trusting the seller to inspect their own vehicle
+1 that Grand River BMW will find all sorts of things to replace on it's first oil change.

Also, Roman is down the street from BMW... also on Victoria street.
