I work at one of the Toyota Dealers here in DFW and we have 2 techs that used to work for John Roberts BMW. Let me know what you need and I can ask them if they want to take on some side work.

Trent(Lone Star Bavarian) has screwed me over too many times in the past and just recently I called him ahead of time to make shure he was there and could do some work on a specified date and time(I live 600 miles away and was coming home for the weekend). I show up and hes gone and only his dad and a mechanic are there. His dad was a complete ass to my mom and I and said im was SOL and go elsewhere.

I heard Autoscope is good but they are pricey. There's another place ehhh, it's slipped my mind but I'll get back to you on it.

Also there's the dallasimports.net website, they do have mechanics that work on the side on BMW cars. There's one guy from Autobahn BMW that may do work on the side.

I had some paintwork done at Stuart's on Plano road. One of the guys there recommended Yov's Import Auto Service on Floyd Circle in Richardson. I recently took my car there for an oil change, and they were very professional and courteous.

great tech.......

I have a great tech at Autobahn in Fort Worth. He's done all the mechanical
work and modifications to my car. He's usually there on Saturdays and does
excellent work. Never had one problem!!!!

He'll be installing my mirrors once Revi sends 'em!!

Hit me back for specifics.........

tech work..........

He does both my regular work and side jobs. If you want I can touch
base and see what he'd charge you for the flush and inspection, as well
as when he can hook you up.

Let me know.

I'd appreciate it if you did. I have 2000 miles left on the odometer thingie before I need Insptn 2, so it's not like an "I need it right now" sort of thing. Thanks.
