Question Recommended BMW (auto) dealer for service? - September 22, 2014, 11:33 AM

Just curious as to who .net recommends for a local BMW dealer, specifically for service, in the VA/MD/DC area.

There's an ex-DCSB.com member who recently opened up his own indie BMW shop.
He was a BMW Dealer Tech & Mechanic for the better part of 10 years.
Drawing a total blank on his name right now, but his shop is in Southern PG County.

BMW of Sterling, they've been great with my Mini service. Met a few of the techs and they were level headed guys, not teenage pot heads that want to steal change and spit in your center console.

No, but I've had friends in the business that know of coworkers doing that and other things at high dollar dealerships.

My experience there was mixed. It took them three attempts to fix a battery issue (including replacing the battery, which cost me $550, and wasn't the problem). Also, the first service rep I worked with flaked out and ended up quitting or something. However, the third attempt to fix the battery they owned up and did it for free, and one of the General Managers gave me a free detailing because of the BS with the first service rep.

Since then, things have been good with them. Sometimes they hand out free bite size pieces of cookies for the customers to try.

I've only been using them since December but every time they have been great and what a dealerships service center should be.

I understand that not all places will shine 100% of the time and I havent been to many of the bmw/mini dealerships in the area to compare.

Hands down RRT in Sterling (Dulles). I've taken the X5 there several times.

^Beat me to it. RRT is the shit.

I have a 1995 BMW M3 and they would be the only place I would take my car in. I do all my own work myself but things like alignments or huge jobs I don't have the tools for they are it.
