I took my 5er to Eksten Autoworks (Greece), for an oil change. He is listed in the Friends of BMW book, he received ringing endorsements from another listee in the book, and I read high praise for him on someone's blog. When I was there, he had several M3s, modded for racing, that he was working on. I figured I couldn't go wrong.

Well, I figured wrong: this guy put EIGHT AND A HALF QUARTS of oil into my I6! Then he charged me $140.

When I challenged him on both the price and the amount of oil, he insisted that it was not too much and that he pays the dealer $9.95 plus tax per quart of oil.

The stealer charges $79 for an oil change.

I took my car to someone else to drain the excess.

It goes without saying that I will not be using him again.
