Porltand or Seattle Indy reccomendations

I have a spanky LCI M5 with 90K and awesome oil results from my over anal retentive changes every single time. That said, I am still doing my bearings soon, and looking for a shop. I have the last gen of this motor with the least failures recorded, but still going to do it.

I was working with Michael Kardas (sp?) at Autowerkes, but he moved to a new shop and I like him, but not them as much. I want an enthusiast who will treat it like me.
Any recommendations??

I was just going to do mine at BMW Northwest dealer. I know you guys have another dealership up in Seattle. Have you asked them how much they'd charge? If it's somewhere around $3500, it should be good I'd think.

Northwest German Car Repair was doing mine till we found a spun bearing took out the crank. Then they did my engine swap.

Stickily BMW in Bellevue has experience here from what I have been told. Give them or Eastside Bavarian a call.


Cheers

Last time I was in their shop it was filthy. The way a shop is maintained says all about the care level of the people working there. Maybe it's better now?
