I visited MM a couple of months back for some diagnostics - Clive clearly knows his stuff, the expensive part he warned me to prepare for wasn't required as he cleared the fault and reset the ECU = far less hit on the wallet. I found Sue on reception be pleasant and professional - not what I'd prepared for based on some of the reviews.
A recent round of quotes for oil and fluid changes for the winter left me a little surprised at MM pricing however which was essentially the same as my local main dealer.
I've been fielding out the little jobs and queries on my car to other indies to get a feel for the places prior to the next Inspection service.
Visited CPC just this morning having made an appointment last week -Phil called me back the day after I left a message. Graham sorted my car this morning but I did meet Phil later on. Incredibly friendly, happy for me to look over their shoulders and ask questions and again clearly know their stuff. But of the two I'll be booking the next service in with CPC - very impressed with their approach and their pricing.
Derek and Clive (yeah, really!) of Munich Motors in Wokingham have decades of BMW experience and certainly know their stuff. You shouldn't shy away from talking to them. They did my 'end of dealer warranty check' and were very thorough.
But I use Phil Crouch of CPC Performance Engineering in Chorleywood, just off J18 of the M25. He's a very busy man and can be difficult to pin down, but he really knows his Beamers and ///Ms inside out, and he charges sensible prices.
