Sorry to post here but i need this quick and the regional forums are somewhat dead...

Any suggestions? I've seen EuroFix and BimmersUSA, but I'd love a recommendation from a board member.

Thanks all,

Joe

Well try this... :)

Go to Community on the top of the forum, then Members List.... on the far right side you will see a button that says "Search Members"..click on this, a menu pull down will display "Advanced Search" Click

Now on the advanced search page go to "Location"...enter "Nashville".. search. On the results page, click on the "last visit" column to sort by visit date. If you click again it should list them most recent members at the top.

This is an excellent list of people who live in nashville who have interacted on the board...PM will be your friend.

:)

Treehouse is pretty good. I've heard good things about Eurofix as well. I live in Nashville, what M5 are you looking at here?

A little far from Nashville, but Bell Buckle Motor Works is top notch.

Thanks guys. I've sent some PMs as well.

Ard, what about former Nasvhillian's, eh? You want me ignoring them? That'd be prejudiced!

:)

Seriously though, I didn't know about that members list - thanks for the heads up.

Just as an update to this:

I called eurofix and while nice, they quoted me $76 for the PPI and then told me they'd "tell me what's wrong with the car". Not re-assuring.

I call up treehouse racing (also known as BimmersUSA) and they quote me ~$109 for the PPI, that they'll tell me about every major system and an overall condition report, and the guy is telling me this is in the middle of changing a steering rack on an e46. He showed good knowledge of M cars, so I decided to go with them :)

I've never heard of a PPI below $200 before. But treehouse/bimmersusa is a well known grassroots organization and they described their PPI as taking ~2 hours. So why n ot?

Geography is everything. I paid $300 for rear pads alone, and the same shop had the balls to tell me rear pads were low after 20000 miles. They became mute after I mentioned they "replaced" them just a year earlier! This was a local shop, no dig to any M specialists out there, I still drop by for state inspection and tire rotation, the right shop makes all the difference.

Guys. I went by Treehouse today and they have closed shop. Cleaned out. Gone. If anyone knows where Chris is working please let me know.

My M is fine. I want to buy a 05-06 X5 as my daily driver and wanted him to do a PPI. He told me to get the 3.0 engine a while back because he said our V8's "are the only V8's BMW ever made that are worth a sh*t." Said the 4.4 and 4.8 are problems waiting to happen. Something about valve seals/stems. I talked with the guys at Kennedy Leasing across the parking lot and they said Chris got a job at another indy shop around here but didn't know which one. Wish I had gotten his cell number.

I didn't know they had closed up. They swapped in my thrust arm bushings last year and I do not have his cell phone number either.

bcampbe7 could you PM me your email address? I haven't PM'd you back as my post count is still 9 posts away lol.

I have a couple questions for you.

Good to know, thanks for the shop suggestions.

I have had nothing but bad experience with BMW of Nashville. Every time I have brought in my car, IMMEDIATELY after something goes wrong with it. Coincidence? Maybe. But their billing rate is exorbitant.
