Break In service in Germany? Suggestion?

I will be taking European Delivery (2011 M3) April 21st and will be staying somewhere near the ring April 24-26th. I am hoping to get my break in service during my stay. Does anyone have a dealer recommendation for the service? Contact info for that dealer? Obviously they need to be competent and quick.

Thank you for your help.

Dealers in Germany are quite efficient, take your pick from the link below and call them in advance to arrange a date/time to take the car in - most dealerships will have someone who speaks Engish if you dont speak German.

If you set the service up in the vicinity of one of the US bases in Germany, you stand an even better chance of finding someone is quite good with English and likely used to servicing a M3. I have only seen two or three non-US owned M3s in my neck of Germany...

Thank you for the recommendation. Is it the Bitburg or Schönecken branch that you would recommend? It looks like they are an authorized BMW service center. Can you confirm? I would like to get the cost reimbursed by BMW north America once I get back.

I talked to my service manager. I will be reimbursed the going rate in the USA once I return. They will simply read the key to confirm the break in service was done.

Oil's a killer - Hope they reimburse you for that too.
