ProAutomotive in Glendale is fantastic, if you're up for a 20 min drive. Small shop that doesn't look like much, but they do outstanding work and have great prices. The guy who owns/runs it is a stand up guy, also a big BMW fan. Serveral of his guys are ///M owners as well

(818) 842-3440. Ask for Aram, tell them Josh with blue M3 Sent you

This one is really close to my house. http://www.yelp.com/biz/one-stop-aut...west-hollywood

The website says BMW certified and they have good reviews. Should I take a chance with them?

Anyone have experience with BMWPHD or DTM Auto Salon in Pasadena? They both seem to have good reviews.
