Try Coast Motor Werk, they're a BMW/Mini only shop. They have two locations Huntington Beach and Irvine. High ratings on Yelp.
I got a PPI done at the Irvine location and chatted with the owner Ron for a while he seemed pretty knowledgeable. Prices seem pretty good and they seem pretty thorough. M3 oil change is about $208 and a battery was $250 iirc.
One thing to note is they geared towards OEM maintenance and repair. I asked if they could install aftermarket pads they didn't want to do it.
