I spent the better part of a year being jerked around by a lot of so called "BMW Specialists" who really knew nothing and quite simply put, they just wanted my money. My Supercharged E46 M3 had an issue that caused the SMG transmission to spaz out and do crazy stuff and literally made it un-drivable. After spending 7 months and a lot of money at a mechanic who's name I won't mention, I finally was referred to Alex over at ABR. I must admit I was a bit skeptical about taking my car to another so called BMW specialist. But I dropped my car off there thinking I was going to get the same horrible service I got everywhere else, and that's where I was wrong. The one thing that really got my attention when I first met him was that he seemed genuinely interested in helping me, which was a first for me. So a day or two later he called me and asked if I had ever had any service done that would require removing the valve cover. My first thought was "oh god. not again. Now I found a mechanic that thinks my valve cover broke my transmission." LOL. But sure enough, I remembered I had a valve adjustment done right before my problems started. That's when Alex told me that the mechanic had forgotten to reattached a ground wire after performing the valve adjustment, and that was causing all my problems. Since then I always use ABR for all my BMW needs. Why look anywhere else? :-) Thank you sooooo much Alex!!! Best Regards, Matthew O.
Your car was for sure, a challenge- and we're glad it was fixed!
