Best BMW Service

Berkeley Motor Works - just the best car experience I've ever had (I'm 63). I bought a not-very-good 2002 in the early 90's, and was referred to Mike Scharzbart for help. He was honest enough to tell me I shouldn't put any more money in the car, and then not only helped me sell it but helped me get into a '79 528i that I drove for 12 or 13 years. Mike and his staff turned every wrench during that time except for one oil change when I was on the road - and Mike found me the mechanic in Austin TX that did that for me! The car was trouble-free and fun to drive all the way through (I finally sold it at 306,000 miles), and Mike, Jane, Ilya, Carol and everybody else at the shop were friendly, helpful and straight up about everything. I even learned a lot about cars from Mike (and I'm hopeless about mechanical stuff). I can't recommend these folks enough - I still drove down for service after I moved to Santa Rosa.
