Club member posted this on our 318ti yahoo list.

I did a quick telephone survey of service rates here in the area of
some of the dealers and a few independents that I know of:

Dealers:
BMW of Arlington, Arlington, VA 115.00
BMW of Sterling, Sterling, VA 118.00
Tischer BMW, Silver Spring, MD 108.00
BMW of Fairfax, Fairfax, VA 115.00
VOB BMW, Rockville, MD 114.90
Passport BMW, Marlow Heights, MD 110.00

Independents:
Fairfax Service Center, Fairfax, VA 110.00
Auto Advantage, Manassas, VA 109.00

All provide a free loaner for major/scheduled service.
Quoted as of 10/19/06

I'll be glad to update the independent service list... (soon to be wikified, so that anyone can update it)

I've also added an NC list.

steven,

i chuckle when you post rates of $100 plus an hour and note "all provide a FREE loaner with scheduled maintenance."

just like bmw's "free" maintenance ...

free after you prepay for it hidden in the purchase price...

Pro-Imports: $79-89 per hour (I can't remember exactly)

Rockville, MD

I got a really good alignment from them and I recommend them.

who wants to figure out labor rates after CCA discount? :)

I think the labor rate is less important than the hours they will flat-rate you for any work performed.
