Independent BMW Shops in Arizona

If you're from Arizona and don't work on your car yourself, where do you go to get your maintenance done (i.e. oil change, brakes, AC tuneup, etc.)?

BMW dealerships are a rip off. Babbit Motoworks has great service, but aren't open during the weekends.

Anyone have any luck with a shop out on the westside?

Thanks!

I was going to ask the same question, but on the east side (Scottsdale/Tempe). If anyone has any recommendations for anywhere in Phoenix, post them here. Maybe we can get a comprehensive list together for the entire valley.

Babbit Motor Werks has locations in Tempe and Mesa. They have great customer service, fair prices and overall great people. It's just that their hours aren't the most flexible, M-F 7:30am to 5pm.

I need an oil change, AC re-charge, brakes and 60k inspection done on my 1er, but can't work around Babbit's schedule.

I also posted this question on the 3 series and M3 southwest forums, still no replies. Kind of weird. We have quite a few Bimmer enthusiasts in AZ, and I'm sure not everyone takes their car to the dealer or does their own work.

Thanks for the recommendation. I'll give them a whirl. Good luck finding a shop!

Will Babbit do the service and reset the computer too? I'm not due for service for another year but will be good to know.

I'm down south in Tucson so sorry, but I take mine to Independent BMW, they are a certified Dinan installer and they do great work!
