    Its not but I've been taking my BMWs there for 15 years. He has former factory BMW techs and all the right gizmos. He services lots of BMWs. The thread didn't stipulate BMW specific shops.

    haha.. I was thinking of starting something like this a few weeks ago.

    Here's some others that I've heard people being happy with. Some other ideas: If the lists start getting big, split them up by northshore/southshore/metrowest/Boston metro. It would also be nice if we could have a yearly poll on 1) favorite service shop overall and 2) shop that offers the best value

    ^Added to the list, thanks for the input.

    Added a parts section as well, any good leads on where to buy parts locally?

    Added a few more shops, and a detailing section, to the list.

    Anyone have anything to offer outside of the Mass/NH area? It's the only spot I'm familiar with, so I have lots of info there.

    Great idea for a thread! I take my car to one garage. It's next to my house



    You might want to add pelicanparts to the parts category. They're not exactly local (okay, not at all) but they have awesome shipping prices. If you buy enough, you can get 3-day shipping for $3

    Yes - and been very happy! James Hart is the BMW guy there and knows his way around the M6 (and all other BMWs as best I can tell).

    I've seen everything there from '70s 2002s to current model year BMWs.

    Curious if any of these shops specialize in older BMWs? A family member needs some work done on their 1986 L7 around the Boston area.

    I've heard from M3 drivers on E46 that tried this new place Boston Motor Werks 1000 Pleasant St Ste 7 Belmont, MA 02478 (617) 489-0291. The mechanics worked as BMW techs at dealership before. Might be another good options near Boston area.
