We offer the Best BMW Auto Repair and Service in Houston. We understand that as a BMW owner you have many choices when choosing which BMW repair shop to place your trust in. Many BMW owners make the mistake of calling around to general automotive repair shops in Houston and telling the shop their problem and asking for the price to fix their BMW.
The problem with this method of finding the best BMW auto repair hop in Houston is that you’ll get caught by a less than ethical auto repair shops in Houston, that will under quote just to get you, and your BMW in the door and then once the papers are signed and the vehicle is in the shop, you’ll start receiving calls about all the things under the sun that are wrong with your vehicle.
Worse still is the verbal estimate provided over the phone. It’s just that a verbal estimate, and the shop does not have to honor it because It was based on your own diagnosis of the problem with your BMW. And not the shops own diagnostic review.

9. How long has your manager been with you
