Approaching my next service and I have a few mods on my car including a cat back, x pipe, tune , etc on a lease (I'm going to buy the car at the end). Anyways, was wondering if anyone had any service centers they recommend in north jersey or Bergen county to get my services done without much hassle?
I used BMW in Hackensack and they were nice but never changed my differential oil like many complain during the 1200 service so I would like a place that knows what they're doing and appreciates some mods

I asked after I got my receipt and saw it wasn't there. I pushed and he said ok we can do it, schedule another appointment. I didn't have time at the time and figured ill bring it up next service and make sure they change it

Awesome. I guess that's where I might go for my 15,000 service

I go to Prestige as well and have nothing but positive things to say about them. They do a lot of Dinan parts and I always talk to them about my car when I bring it in (tune, exhaust mod, pulley, air filter). Never had an issue with any of that stuff.

Curious what service issues you have had with them.

route 23 in wayne.

Heard great things about them though since they also sell porsche.

I am going to start at bmw of freehold since I have had cars serviced there before and they are 5 mins from me

Then if I have issues which I hope not, I will expand outward across NJ

Even though they have free maintenance I do believe the shop that performs the work gets paid from BMW NA, similar to how warranty repairs are paid out

Let me know how the freehold service goes. I still gotta rack up 6k miles before my next surface.
