Looking for a recommended shop in Tacoma or in Puget Sound to do a PPI on a 2000 M5

As the title says, I am looking for a recommendation of a shop that knows E39 M5 cars well and can do a first class per-purchase inspection.



With the price of these cars now, I would hate to make a mistake on a purchase.


Thanks!


Dave the newbie from Gig Harbor.

Use Bristow’s Exclusive Auto or Rolf’s Import Auto. I took mine to both and both are reputable and know their stuff.

Went with Rolf's. Very comprehensive PPI on the 2000 M5, then swapped cars and they got the A/C working properly on my 2008 RS4, then swapped cars again and they are chasing down an oil leak on my 2000 540/6 speed. Probably covering the owner's boat payment this month!

Glad to hear it. I’ve been going to Rolf’s since I started driving. They joked for a while they needed to a special punch card for me. Good people.

I think Rolf's know their BMW cars.. If you are close to the Tacoma area, they are a good bet. Kassel Motorsport in Puyallup is also a good shop. There are also some good shops in the Bellevue area, but I cannot tell you first hand which to use.

2000 BMW M5, Anthracite with Heritage black leather
2008 Audi RS4 Cabriolet, Datona Gray with silver leather
2017 Chevy Silverado, my economy car!!!
1999 528iT, black/black, 212k miles. The Black Rat
2002 540iA, Silver with black leather


Gone but not forgotten:
2000 BMW 540/6 - Silver
2000 BMW 540/5 - Blue
2002 BMW 540/6 - Grey
2001 BMW 525it/auto
2001 BMW 525i/auto
