Where to get work done in London?

Hey guys, I used to drive to oakville to get work done on our bmw but due to poor craftsmanship, we are choosing to find somebody local.
Where is a good place to go for oil changes/transmission fluid flush and the typical maintenance?

we refuse to go to bmw here in London due to their over priced work and so-so customer service.


I believe I heard somebody say something about a fanshawe repair shop? are there any other solid and reliable european garages here?

thank you kindly

I think there are a few shops out towards Kamoka, all the high profile ones seem to head out that direction, but i'm not sure if any would play with BMWs, it might make for a nice sunday drive to look and see though.

I guess there's someone out there that works on Porsche and Ferarri, but i have yet to see that, I'll try and double check with a family member that's in that area.

Fanshaw Motors is all right www.fanshawemotors.ca although I've been going to BMW London for most of my service on my Z4, X5 and 540... I have no reason to complain about their service or their prices. It all depends on how old your BMW is and your Service advisor I guess. See Kris Fairweather,- he'll be straight and honest with you, has been with me for the past few years.

Komka has a few shops NONE are BMW places.

One is Ferrari and Porche, another is Volvo, the third is a general fix and sell place with no BMWs in the lot. Fanshawe Motors is fine IF you have Joe Derks work on your car, Adrian is a crack head and spaced out most of the time. Don't expect fast service either... I had a car there for weeks before they looked at it!
