(Chicago) Can anyone recommend a competent BMW shop?

As I am currently an apartment dweller and probably soon to be condo dweller (what can I say, I love it downtown). I need to find a shop that is familiar working on late model BMWs. Thinking about doing some suspension mods (new springs/camber plates/sways), etc. in the spring and am looking for a shop to have the parts installed at.

Really don't want to take it to a Car-X , but would like to take it somewhere that is within the city limits so that I can get a cab to/from if I am to leave it all day.

Thanks in advance!

I'm interested in knowing this too. I haven't found a good shop yet either. I also want some place that knows the BMW.

A&L/IND Distribution in Palatine would be your best shop around the Chicagoland area. Of course, it's not within Chicago city limits though, but they do know their stuff.

Looks like a good/closer/perhaps less expensive alternative.... does anyone have any personal experience with them? Doesn't look like they've been around too long, but the reviews are decent.
