Stubborn Hydrocarbon Leak
My 1998 328i has tripped the Check Engine Light due to a minor hydrocarbon leak. I have taken the car to my regular independent BMW mechanic 3 times already and he has failed to fix the problem. He's a good guy, and I realize that this is a difficult problem to isolate, but my patience has worn out. The car drives fine, but it will not pass state emissions inspection. Can anyone recommend a BMW mechanic in the Dallas area for this? I realize that this may involve hundreds of dollars of labor costs to find and fix the leak, but what other choice do I have?

Re: Stubborn Hydrocarbon Leak
Autoscope is at the corner of Coit Rd. and Plano Parkway. Nerces has a great group of mechanics at Autoscope. I've been using them since purchasing my '95 530i 2 years ago. I've never had to take it back to have them fix a repair.
You can find all the contact information at www.autoscope.net. Ask for Robby. Robby is the Shop Supervisor.
Let me know how it goes.

I second the motion...
Autoscope is fantastic. I used them to install my short shifter and my Dinan software upgrade, but I'd definitely take my car there for anything else rather than the dealer. They're not cheap, but they know their stuff.
