    Independent Service Shops in South Bay

    Hi,

    The warranty on my car expired earlier this year and I am looking for a good independent repair shop in the South Bay (Sunnyvale/Mountain View/San Jose) to do regular service/maintenance.

    Where do you experienced owners take your bimmers for service? What's the typical hourly labor rate?

    Thank you for sharing any info.

    A&E Performance in Campbell.

    Al has been in business forever. Large, well equipped independent shop. He has always treated me well.

    Steve Dinan started off as a technician for Al, if that gives you any idea of the quality and time in business.

    Re: A&E Performance in Campbell.

    I had my 740 towed into A&E this morning; unfortunately, Al retired and sold the shop to Dinan. I left the car there since I didn't have another option easily at hand and I need to get it back on the road, but historically I haven't been crazy about Dinan.

    Anyway, this is just meant as a heads-up to others who have been using A&E that it may be time to look for a new shop. I was a little surprised I didn't get anything in the mail about the change - on the other hand, if it was in a Dinan envelope, we probably would have tossed it without opening it, so maybe that's my fault.
