    Dan does all of the work on my E46 M3, including track Tech inspections. I recommend him 100%.

    Many of the shop listings are for Montgomery County and Northern Virginia, but if you're in Prince George's County there's 2 shops I highly recommend. You don't have to drive to Egypt to get excellent service for our BMWs!!!

    1) Beamer Auto
    6312 Aaron Lane
    Clinton, MD 20735
    240-257-2775

    2) Randy's C.A.R.S.
    7523 Old Alexandria Ferry Rd.
    Clinton, MD 20735

    Hello fellow BMW enthusiasts!
    My 2014 BMW 328 Sport Wagon needs a 50K mile service -- new battery, differential fluids, brakes, fuel injection service and so on. Naturally the car has 52K miles on it and is out of the maintenance plan. Dealer wants me to pay $1,500. I'd like to shop around. While it would be fun to get it performance tuned, the truth is it's my wife's daily driver and she does not take it to the track, especially with two little kids in the back . What recommendations does the hive mind have for service in the Alexandria/Springfield area?
    Thanks in advance...

    Hi Paul
    Thanks for the advice. I used Martinís for a 60k mike service on my Z4. I spent over $800 and donít really feel I got all that much to show for it. After checking some reviews on Yelp, I thought Iíd try German Auto Group. Iíll report back with the results.

    Quick update for those of you following from home:
    I used German Auto Group of Alexandria (600 S. Pickett St.) . Here's the breakdown:
    Coolant, Differential, Transfer case flush and fuel injection service: $898.60
    Replace rear brake pads and rotors. $638
    Replace battery: $423
    Total cost: $1,999
    Dealer quote for the work was comparable. Am I wrong for feeling like I paid too much?

    Brake work seems high unless you went with high performance parts. I haven't had to replace a battery that needs registering, but hope I'm not paying that much when the time comes!
