Which dealership for service?

Well, only 200 more miles until my car is finally broken in!!!! Now the question is, which dealership in the LA area has the best service department? I live right next to the Santa Monica dealership, but I'm not sure if I trust them. lol. Are any of the other dealerships worth driving to? Thanks.

Ehh hem!

Excuse me, pardon the interruption, but where are your write up and pics from the drive back from NM?

Back OT:

Having an SA on your side (mod friendly, takes a proactive approach to warranty, etc...) is key...make sure you find your SA first, the extra drive will be worth it. Lucky for me I grew up w a buddy who is now the service manager, however the drive is ~45 min. away...inland.

I've had mine serviced @ Southbay and it was fine. Too much of a drive for me though.

lol, I have been so busy since getting back. I did post a couple of pics and a tiny review in this thread though: http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=127019

Yeah, I really wish I knew a service manager at a dealer around here. I definitely don't mind driving though. When I lived in Westwood, I used to take my porsche to the dealer all the way in Norwalk. But it was worth it just for the peace of mind. I'm going to need to find one soon though, as my car already has 1100 miles!!!!
