Expired

Does anyone know any good BMW garage/mechanic in Birmingham please? Had some really bad experiences lately so your help would really be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Struggling to find a decent mechanic. Been a few who have either messed us about or even damaged the car more. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Thanks - i just checked. No mechanics/garages.
would probably be best to go to an independent bmw specialist. You'll probably end up paying a bit more but you know they will do a proper job as they are usually officiated by bmw to make sure they fix their cars to a certain standard
RSj Motors in Balsall Heath. 

0121 440 8960
not the best facilities but do a proper job
You need to visit an owners forum and get help there
i have a e60 07 plate where dpf removal and remap was botched by garage which shall remain nameless.
MBM Autohaus holford drive perry barr put me right. what exactly is the issue with yours.
I've used BM Auto Parts in West Brom before with no problems.
yup 2 id recommend
have heard a couple of bad stories about bm auto on a few forums so i avoid them

rsj above - if dont mind the scrapyard appearance - he's an ex master tech - what he lacks in communication and customer service is made up for in knowledge and prices

however my preference after being kept waiting all day on false promises by rsj is
Jo Darby - again ex bmw tech based just south of birmingham towards redditch
is now my first port of call.
is a lil bit pricier than rsj but doenst mess you about, no fix no fee (and hes spent 3 hours trying to get to the bottom of a mystery airleak on mine with no charge) and happy to talk through things with you first. also has courtesy cars if you let him know in advance (has just moved units to a bigger one but same farm location)

hope youve had it refitted since... ? - its an MOT failure now...
Any reviews on mbm Autohaus Perry Barr?
I have a BMW 05 plate e60 and I went to 2 BMW Specialists, who won't be named, and they said I needed my turbo replaced. I decided to try out MBM Autohaus in Perry Barr and they said it was my swirl flaps. I had them replaced from there and I have had no problems since. I have complete trust in them and have been going there now for 2 years.
You should check them out as they are quite efficient.
Anybody use whittaker bmw services r they any good thanks
why dont you name and shame the garages instead of saying "shall remain nameless"
as naming them will only get them to improve ! or go bust !!
i had a very poor experience with sytner on 2 occasssions
sutton and central
so wont be using them again !

bmw 5 / 10 plate

ive been to jo darby several times, he used to be ok when he worked on the cars, but since he`s moved into new bigger premises he hardly works on the cars anymore and has sub standard mechanics working for him who do all the work on the cars and they`re not bmw specialists, i wasn`t happy with the standard of work they carried out on my bmw. I`d think twice about going again.
