San Diego Dealers for service

Hi, I recently purchased a 2010 CPO 135i conv. Which dealer in San Diego has provided good service?

Thanks.

Ask for Nick Owen as your tech. He happens to be the current president of the BMWCCA San Diego chapter. I live in Scripps Ranch, but I take my car to him for service.

I'm glad you are happy with them, but I have had nothing but bad experiences with them. I personally stay far away from them.

Be careful with BMW Encinitas, the service department is different that it was two years ago. I've had some issues with car condition and a few "bent wheel" diagnosis with no problem present. I'd recommend BMW San Diego on Clairemont Mesa Blvd.

Care to share your experiences? I took my 135 there last week and I liked the work they did. They also hooked me up with a SD BMW license plate frame because I didnt want the Pacific Glendale one and Im from SD. ha

Just sharing my exp...

Brake light cracked, out of warranty, so I purchased the part myself and got a quote from both BMW of San Diego and BMW of Encinitas for the install (Labor)...

BMW of San Diego 1.5-2 hours of labor $240
Bmw of Encinitas 1-1.5 hours of labor $135

Odd one dealership would charge $100 more to do the same thing...

I never been to South County, but I might try them in the future.

After reading all of the posts, I still prefer BMW of San Diego. I believe the differences in service recieved is that almost no one establishes a relationship with a service writer. I have been with my service writer for over 10 years! I realize the service should be good no matter what, but anything made by man will brake. Customers could be a little more understanding. As far as cost of service, high end products such as BMW's do have high end service costs.
