BMW Austin Recalls fixes

Who here has used BMW of Austin to do their recalls? I keep getting called by them, but I'm very hesitant to use the dealership as I swear every time I go something ends up broken or missing...Not to mention the horror stories I keep reading on here about having the same things happen to other folks.

I don't have personal experience with them but I've heard great things and do know of people in San Antonio who rather take the trip to Austin instead of using the local one here...

that is exactly what I did. I had horrible experiences at the local dealer in San Antonio and made the drive up to the North location for my e92m airbag recall.

pretty sad we have to drive that far, huh?

Well the new dealership should be built this spring near I-10 and 1604, so maybe there is hope?
