Genuine BMW Parts/Service in Bay Area

Hi all,

I went to the BMW dealership in Mountain View and went for a routine maintenance checkup as I also needed an oil change. My warranty has expired and I am looking to replace the 10% left on my front brakes, air filter, and reset of the fault memories.

Does anyone know a local shop in the Bay Area that can provide genuine BMW parts and labor at a cheaper price for the items listed in this picture?

Thanks in advance guys!

The fluid and filter changes you should definitely at least do yourself. Super easy and would save you a few hundred. Brakes are a bit more involved but not bad at all. We have a lot of good DIYs on all of the above.

If you are desperate to pay someone else to do it, the BMWCCA usually has a fairly good repository of reputable indy shops. In your case, looks like Trackstar Racing?

I took mine to www.gms.cc at Sunnyvale, great service & competitive pricing they only use BMW parts for all service.
If you are new customer you can ask for 10% off on first service.

I will get back to you shortly once I confirm that the list of parts I've received from the dealership are the actual parts I need from another shop. Thanks

I can highly recommend Sounds of Speed and Performance in Santa Clara, Sonic MS in Mountain View or ABS in San Mateo.
