Bay Area Non-Dealer Service

Anyone have recommendations for a BMW shop where I can get an oil change done between the factory recommended intervals?

I noticed that the forum sticky mentioned Phaedrus BMW in SF and I know Dinan's locations in the Bay Area also do BMW service. Anyone have experiences with any of those shops or other recommendations?

Thanks for the Bavarian Motorsport recommendation. Any recommendations for places in SF or around Palo Alto?

Now that my car is out of warranty, and I'llbe needing service done sometime soon, I thought I'd revive this thread. I'm mainly looking for recommendations in SF or the Peninsula.

Yelp search turned up this place: http://alternativebmwservice.com/contact.php
Anyone have any experience with them?

Performance European in Mt. View does great work.
Ask for Chad - he's the owner / tech.
