I'd like to recommend my pal, Stevie at Grinspeed: www.grinspeed.co.uk

He's a superb mechanic, cut his teeth on BMW and now specialises in all sorts of cars (mainly Japanese), but he still works on a lot of BMW's and other motors.

A gearbox (manual not auto) and suspension specialist, excels in setting up cars properly re suspension. Better than a lot I've known who claim to be the best...!

He also works a lot for Ford MSport and travels around the world doing various WRC rallies etc

No idea about garages and I'm not in the UK anyway, so that won't help. I do, however, have a friend there that recommended a supplier to me. He ordered his gas struts through Mister Auto. I hadn't heard of them until he mentioned it to me. I needed brake discs and was looking for BMW specific parts for my make (and of course didn't want to pay a fortune). Found them there and was happy with it.

Notes

Had a battery replaced by RAC (non-AGM type battery) in my E60 520d LCI (M47 engine) and RAC were unable to register/programme the battery to the car. Therefore I contacted CPC who were well informed and friendly and said they could do the work whcih took about 10 mins using dedicated BMW computer. 

Very knowledgeable staff and a happy customer :)

I've used CPC, spent well into 4 figures, but I won't go back there again. I can get same or better service much closer to me.

 

Whereabouts?

I would like to convey my sincere thanks to Classic Bahnstormers who were trusted to take care of the part restoration of my M535i. The integrity and attention to detail of this company has not failed to return my car in the best possible condition.

Regular and detailed email and telephone updates allowed me to follow each stage of the restoration., with any challenges quickly overcome. I live 200 miles from Classic Bahnstormers but I always felt part of the decision process

If you are wanting a proficient, reliable and knowledgeable company specializing in classic BMW’s I urge you to contact Classic Bahnstormers for an informal chat.
