Hey guys,

I'm posting on behalf of my friend, who needs the clutch in an E90 325xi changed. He's located on LI, and the dealer quoted $3000, or roughly double what I estimate to be a reasonable price. That was without the flywheel too, as we believe it just needs the clutch.

Anyone know of a good indy?

Thanks

Call Craig at RPM! Best shop on LI!(516) 870 0351 110 Fairchild Ave.
Plainview, NY 11803


Tell him Marcus with the CLS55 sent you.
P.S. $3000 is absurd!

M-Spec in queens, Eddie knows his stuff and is reasonable in price.

the BEST is in NJ Bimmer Clinic well worth the drive for the quality of work and cost, Bill is in the process of moving to a larger facility so not sure if he is taking on more work till after the move.

Both shops are exclusive to BMW's only! and both owners are BMW enthusiasts.

Obvously Its not the main reason I moved to CA... I also enjoy Cali cruising more than sitting in a shop waiting for a poor diagnostic and no repair...

but it sounds like you spent way more in repairs in NY than I have.... so lets hear your 2 cents on your vast experience with the local shops I have been going to for the last 7 years....

I have spent way upwards of $70k + in repairs and mods just a FYI...

Just a side note... I stopped by Quality auto in Port Washington for a window reg that was on its way out on the M5 and guess who is sitting in the waiting room.... The Pres of the SCCA NY chapter....

Sorry to revive this thread again, but I wanted to inquire about a good repair shop on Long Island. While my 1M is currently under warranty, my Z4M is not and I'm looking to find a great local repair shop to take it to. I'm also looking for an E39 M5 (hence reaching out to this board), so I'd really like to hear of your experiences with any local shops (I'm already thinking of the VANOS issues, MAFS, carbon buildup problems...).

In the event that you also have a great, low mile M5 for sale... Very interested too...

Thanks for the tip! Any opinions on Quality Auto in Port Washington? I know this was mentioned by someone on the prior pages, but just wanted to vet the shop out here first.

SmokingJoe on here uses a guy in Mineola who he says is fantastic, he recently had some work done on his M6. My detail guy who has an M5, also recommended the same guy to me as apparently this indy guy is a BMW specialist. I have full warranty on my car so can still take it to the dealer for anything/everything so I didn't take the details. You could PM SmokingJoe though.

Do you go to Matt at DD? I know he has a nice E39. I think that they go to George (deamonM5), the same guy who used to be at European Moterwerks. PMed him to see if he is now located in Mineola.

Yes, I go to Matt at DD! I think the mechanic guy sometimes works from Matt's place in Mineola. From the dealings I've had with Matt, I trust his recommendation!
