Where do you have your maintenance done? I'm curious because I'm about to take delivery of my new Beast (Mike0804's '00 Dinan M5) and I'm considering what shop to put in charge of routine and major maintenance. Not being born with the mechanic's gene, I'm hesitant to do much to the car myself, other than minor jobs like oil changes.

I suppose the answer depends a lot on whether your car is still under warranty or subject to the BMW full maintenance program. No doubt it makes sense to take these cars to a BMW dealership for maintenance. But what about cars, like mine, that are out of warranty?

I take my E28 M5 to an independent BMW shop. The dealers around here wouldn't know what to do with it! ;)
