Sonic Motorsport maybe? Seems like people like they're work and I've had a good experience with them as well.

I've heard bavarian motorsport's experience is primarily with older generation BMWs. Can anyone comment on this? My maintenance plan is about to expire and I'll need to find a shop to do my regular maintenance from here on out. I'm torn between Bavarian Motorsport and Performance Technic.

I have been to both. They are both more than capable of working on new generation BMW's and have all diagnostic tools necessary to connect to the car.

I am partial to P-Tech as they just did a bunch of work for me but my experience with Ramon from Bavarian Motorsport was excellent as well (this was a couple years ago). Stand up guy and good shop.

they're both very capable for all BMW's old and new. i'm often at tcdesign which is just a few doors down from bav motor and i can always see a variety of bmw's outside ramon's shop.

you won't be disappointed by either shop.
