Can't recommend Darjac Racing enough, and I even complete a 460 mile round trip from Liverpool each time I need something doing on my Z4MC (and formerly my e34 M5).

Methodological approach to fault finding, constant status updates, always available to answer questions and a genuinely nice guy running it.

Also gets great reviews on M5Board.com

Used these guys today and certainly recommend them and will definitely be using them again. I dealt with Gary – top bloke who knows his stuff.

Friendly, sensible pricing, knowledgeable and a real enthusiasm / passion for all things BMW - what more could you want from a specialist?

Based in Kent.

Eh, No. Are you? Just because you didn't receive good service doesn't meant I didn't.

Camskill tyres in Cumbria. Excellent next day service and competitive prices too-Price match online with ANYONE!

I second that, have used them in the past and they provide an excellant service, and prices are keen too!

Has anyone had any experience of Custom Werks for servicing in Hayes? I am looking at getting an Inspection 2 done shortly.

Your views/opinions would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks.

Mixed opinions. Some people say amazing and great service, some say the opposite.

I highly recommend:

DARREN WOOD BMW SPECIALISTS,

Bredbury, Stockport

0161 425 7403

These guys (Darren and Mike) are feckin awesome! They're both skilled ex-BMW mechanics with what I can only describe as a genuine love of BMWs (and knowledge too).

They've always gone the extra mile for me and really know their stuff.

Can't speak highly enough of these guys..... they recently travelled about 20 miles to my house to fix my motor rather than me spending on recovery.

Lincolnshire - Roy Alexander in Louth.

Roy was originally at Harveys as far as I know, and his son Mark now runs their garage with him.

Excellent service, excellent people.

They know BMW's inside out.

I got an oil service done at CPC Performance Engineering today. They were recommended on here, and I can certainly see why. Phil Crouch got the job done quickly, gave me a rundown on the issues he saw with the car, threw in a code read on an airbag fault, and even had a little time for a chat about cars. Highly recommended.

Not heard of these thanks as I'm only in Offerton so they're only a few miles away :D

Nice simple website as well http://www.rockvale.co.uk

Might try Darren next time though as my current wagon is a local car from Wilmslow :D

I can highly recommend Diamond Styling for wheel refurbs! They have just done a set of throwing stars for me (colour coded centres and polished lips) and i am truly over the moon with the quality of the job they have done..In the past 15 or so years I have used Lepsons...but not any more!

Has anyone used Beemer Redeemer in Kenysham Nr. Bristol? Wondering if they are worth a visit or a bunch of robbing pikey's like so many "specialist" breakers I have had the misfortune of dealing with locally.

which are the ones you don't recmommended

i know a friend likes wheelbase and another used them, but wouldn't go back as he feels they didn't put his car back together properly with bolts going loose etc.

Can anybody recommend a good garage to service the auto box on my 530d. I'm just north of London and don't travelling a reasonable distance for a good job.

Depending on how far north you're willing to go, Barry Jones in Stevenage is good.
