We've used Motorwerks Houston for our MINI Cooper S and we were very satisfied with their work.
Here's a link to their facebook info page:
http://www.facebook.com/motorwerksofhouston?v=info
Have not taken the 135 there yet, but I did consult with them before buying.
You can usually find them the first Saturday morning of the month at the Cars and Coffee at Uptown Park (not far from where you live).

Alright everyone, lets set a date so we can get this started. How does everyone feel about the second weekend of October? Maybe Saturday the 10th or Sunday the 11th?

There should be a couple of 1's at the coffee meet on Saturday, I'll have mine there for sure. There's also a BMW CCA autocross on Sunday out at the Police Academy if you're into that sort of thing. I may actually run the 135 this time.
