    I don\'t know, but whenever possible I go to seattl

    BMW instead of those guys. They don't seem to be very knowlegible and cutcorners. Just one example. I called them once to get some (non reusable) selflocking nuts for my driveshaft. They don't cary them because they reuse them anyhow. I also get questions from them like "what's a guibo? Oh it's also called a flexdisc. what's a flexdisc? never heard of it." '93 740i

    BMW Bellevue was a huge disappointment

    Went there even though my friend who used them warned me against it. They thoroughly confirmed his recommendation- from 2 week appointment, to not understanding the problem- to not working on the car in time- to not fulfilling their commitments on parts or informing of delays- to just plain forgeting everything...

    They had a handfull of problems this year

    from what I understand. Big change in staff/management, and I am not sure who initiated those changes, but things were bad for a while.

    Screw BMW Seattle...

    Replacing the centerbearing/driveshaft support, and my puller wasn't long enough to pull the old one off the driveshaft. A really really simple thing, takes 30 seconds, I just didn't have the right tool.

    SEATTLE BMW WANTED $43 TO PULL IF OFF.

    I said to the guy, "You know the shaft is off the car, right?"
    "Yeah."
    "So you know what I'm talking about, just using a puller to get the old one off?"
    "Yeah."
    "WELL DO I GET TO CAVE YOUR CRANIUM WITH THE SHAFT, FOR THAT PRICE?"


    Screw those guys, car tender did it for free. (I bought the guys a six-pack of Redhook to say thanks, though.)

    Yeah, but if you went to Bellevue they'd asked for

    $70.
