I didn't need anything in particular at the time, I was just looking for a shop I can go to for things that I can't do on my own. I'll PM you if I need help with something mechanical; nice knowing there's another fanatic in the area.

Right now I'd like to find some place that can code my car so that my windows roll up via remote.

OP are you talking about Bavarian Select Auto? http://www.bavarianselect.com I know the one sales rep there, graduated high school a year after me... I went in there and test drove 2 E46s when I was looking for one. IMO their prices for the cars are way overpriced so I don't know what their prices are for servicing the cars are.

I've gone to Foster's Automotive (Mechanicsburg), they deal with a lot of Porsches and euros, but they charge about the same as the dealership, honest and trustworthy group of guys though.

Only other place I can think of around here is CR's BMW Wholesale in Newville... I know Chris and my friend used to work for him- he's a very cool, down to earth guy and he knows his ****.

Would you be willing to help me out w/ rotors, pads, and SS lines? I'd pay you, I'm just not sure how comfortable I am working on my brakes. FWIW, I've got the software to activate the ABS system so that I can clear the old fluid out of there

Well, there's a guy who's willing to let me borrow his pressure bleeder, so I think I'll try to tackle this on my own. If I end up deciding it's too much for me, I'll definitely take you up on that offer!
