I have owned various BMW's over the last 20 years and therefore I have a lot of experience with BMW dealers and independent shops. ABR is the best BMW repair shop I have ever dealt with for both newer model BMW's and classic BMW's. I have a rare E34 M5 that was sitting because of some bad prior dealings with other independent shops. I took a leap of faith and took my M5 to ABR for repair. Jordan, the ABR service advisor, gave me an estimate to bring it back to life, including what needed to be done right away and what could wait. ABR took on the project, kept me posted as the project progressed, and even sent me pictures as various jobs were completed. When I came to pick up the car the bill was extremely close to the estimate they gave me a few months earlier despite a few unanticipated issues. My 27 year old M5 now runs fantastically and I would drive it anywhere. The service tech who worked on it, Grady, did a great job bringing it back to life for me. I also recently acquired an E82 135i as a daily driver, and with Jordan's advice, installed a few upgrades. Wow, what a difference - the car is much more fun to drive and I didn't have to spend a huge amount of money to do it. My daily commute is much more enjoyable now! What makes ABR stand above all the other BMW shops and dealerships I have dealt with is their honesty. BMW's are expensive to maintain but ABR is not out to take advantage of you or run up your bill. That's not something I can say about some other BMW shops I have dealt with over the years. ABR gets the job done right the first time and does so honestly.
Andrew we appreciate you a ton. Your a pleasure to work with and a model client. We wish we could clone you! Stop by any time!
