Where to get valve adjustment done?

Hey guys, I'm pretty new to BMWs and guess I should complete inspection II on my car by doing the valve adjustment. I've got ~77K on my M3. Let me know if anyone has a good shop that they recommend. I'm between Bristol, RI and Darien, CT and will travel ~1 hr away from either location if necessary.

Pretty easy DIY. I can loan you my valve adjustment kit if you want to attempt yourself.

This is far, but I go to http://www.bostonmotorwerks.com/ in Bemont, MA. Just had my valve adjustment done there a few weeks ago. That's my LSB M3 pictured on their lift
