    desperately need mechanic in Maryland

    i am having big problems with my 97 328is,65,000miles, i had a vibration problem for a couple of months. it would happen at 1,000rpm and again at 1,800rpm. In gear or out of gear! at a stand still or moving. and now the clutch pedal went real soft and its hard to get the car moving,like the engagement point is way off. no fluid is visably leaking. so i replaced the engine mounts because a dealer and a shop said i should, it didnt help! , ALL fluids replaced and coolant flushed, like two weeks after i had that work done this clutch problem started. and the vibration problem is still there and my battery is now dead , i just bought the battery! its been sitting on the street for like a month and a half......
    i need a good shop i can trust to fix my car!!!!! please please help! the dealer around here suck!

    i live in Severna Park Maryland, is near Annapolis and baltimore,glen burnie

    Re: desperately need mechanic in Maryland

    Well, if you want to come all the way up to Westminster, "International Cars" (410-876-7030) is the best I've ever seen.
    Good mechanics, reasonable prices, and they are 100% trustworthy. I have been dealing with them for nearly 20 years, and keep going back.
    They are the reason that we have so many high milage cars, and don't make any car payments!

    Here's another option for you in Laurel. Executive Auto Services. He's done work for me in the past and is reasonable. Check the link below

    Re: Executive Auto Services left town


    Sorry for the bad info; I drove my Z3 by there yesterday and Executive Auto Services is no longer in Laurel . Funny thing too- the place was always jampacked with business...

    I agree, I just went to Dan Martins for service and was very impressed. They will definitely be where I bring my car from now on. It might be a bit far for you to travel though. BTW, the labor is $75/hour.
