"Auto Bavaria will be the best choice for you to go, they won't explain
to you in pages like ordinary workshops do, they are professionals in
their job and comply with their standard
working manuals. Save your cash."

"....but pls make sure that you send your car to Auto Bavaria to avoid
headaches, repairing and upgrading your BMW at ordinary workshops
actually cost more than Auto Bavaria itself, ordinary workshops will try
an error on your car and when something is wrong with their R&D, this is
where pages of explaination and excuses will come....and the worst part,
you got to pay for their mistakes.

Remember, BMW parts are not cheap."

Any workshop will admit that they can repair BMW but the fact
is..........??????

I am sorry there is no such thing good workshop in this country so far,
but Auto Bavaria should be better than those unauthorised "1/2 pass sick"
workshop which not even have the right equipment to read the fault
memories inorder to diagnose the cause, to update or encode the control
module software, to carry out the service function, to change the modes,

I wish to ask those workshops W,T,F, can you ppl do beside changing
oil/filters,brake pads and carry out some minor mechanical jobs?

not true..autobavaria quoated me RM10k+ to fix some clicking sound on my
steering but an unauthorised BM workshop settle it for RM160.00. I never
been back to autobavaria since and all my problems solved everytime in that
workshop and never 2nd visit.

p/s..company is only the name ultimately it is the skill of the people that
counts.

I frequently take my e46 to GM Auto along Free School Road (Greenlane). Mr. Chee is an ex AB guy, and does my repairing and maintenance very well, and most importantly........ cheap!

Hmm...I should have gone to take the GPS coordinate. Convenient for everyone, i think.
