Question Good BMW Mechanic around Noosa / Sunny Coast?

Can anyone make a recommendation of a good BMW mechanic (even one with good N54 knowledge) around Noosa or the Sunshine Coast?

Thanks in advance!

Another n54 on the sunny coast

What are you looking at having done?

I get my auto trans and diff serviced by millermatics, my general servicing done by andrews hi tech automotive and for n54 specific stuff (inlets etc.) I spend the day in brisbane while brisbanemotorworks work on the car.

I cant fault costal BMW, but they act and charge like BMW dealers.

Thanks for the reply! I just need some downpipes fitted plus a regular service. But would like someone better value than the dealer without having to go to Brisbane. Appreciate the recommendation but Brisbanemotorworks seems to get some very mixed reviews!

Again in Brisbane:

Candidates are RX Automotive (talk to Pierz) and Sommer Car Care (talk to Jordan). These guys know BMWs and won't rip you a new one.

I'd be surprised if you alone didn't account for more than half the 1M owners on the coast

Thanks for the tip, I'll give them a try next service.

Just came home from Blitz and would +1 that recommendation.

Stephan really knows his sh*t.

Someone had their very nice ONE M in there for a service today too, so I can personally vouch to the accuracy of sparoz's claim
