Need a good BMW shop in the western suburbs of Philly

I recently purchased a 2005 BMW 330xi as my first BMW. Was wondering if anyone has any recommendations of good shops that are experienced with BMWs in the western suburbs of Philly. I plan on doing some of my own work, but it's always good to have someone to go to for more challenging work.

Any suggestions?

My family is in that area. And I can't remember seeing any in Rosemont. I'm pretty sure they go to the dealer.

I did a quick search here in this forum for "shops philly" and came up with these. I hope it helps

I'm a long time car guy but recent BMW daily driver. I've been a member of the BMW club (Delaware Valley chapter) for many years. Bavarian Specialties is (or was) owned by Mike Yaskin, who is highly regarded by the local BMW guys with whom I have contact. There are some other indies around, but Bavarian has been doing primarily BMW work for a long time.

Now that at you mention them, I remember passing by there on Church Rd. in KoP when I used to work out that way. Glad to heat that they are a good place to go and I'll check them out.

Glad to hear that you liked them. Are their rates fair?
