Hi,

Just moved up from FL and I need to get MD safety inspection done for my e46 330i and a Subaru Forester. I know someone said that garages vary greatly in how picky they are. Can anyone recommend good experiences they've had in the Gaithersburg/Germantown/Rockville area?

Thanks,

Phil/TW

Small shop but the work is excellent; he knows BMW's very well and his prices are very good. One year warranty. Frequented by the more 'performance-driven' club members. Well-acquianted with older BMW's and M-cars. ($75/hr)

I'll definitely check them out. Are they an official Maryland State Safety Inspection site?

I don't think he is. Call/email to verify. I believe he would send your vehicle for the 'official' MD inspection to another local shop but he could do any required repairs for you.

Does any one have a place they'd recommend? Cost, leniency, etc.

Does any one have a place they'd recommend? Cost, leniency, etc.I think they all will charge about the same and 5 different shops will find 5 different things to fail you on. Since it is a one time inspection they look pretty closely. As far as leniency, what issues do you expect to have a problem with?

Not expecting anything, really, I just don't want to get held up if I don't have to.
