    BMW Servicing 26th Apr 18 at 1:16 PM
    Does anyone have a good independent BMW servicing company that are trust worthy and good value?

    Recently bought from Bavarian in Belfast, but I suspect their servicing costs are very high compared to independents.

    Belfast area, but willing to travel a bit if necessary.

    Take a look at the value service to compare costs. Personally if it's not much older than 3 years, I'd stick with the dealer. I've received some goodwill before and imho it's worth paying a bit more.

    Theres no particular reason why you need to use a BMW specialist if its just routine maintenance or servicing for that matter.

    Any competent mechanic will be able to check it over for you.

    Personally, I wouldn't leave my BMW in to just any mechanic!


    It's a bit out of the way, but I travel to it myself from Waringstown.

    Rhys is very good and in my opinion easy to pay, compared to a dealer.

    His shop is in the old BC Plant JCB yard in Hillsborough. Now that BC Plant has closed he's moving up the yard a bit, to a bigger workshop.



    Nice guy and knows all about Beemers. Highly recommend, but check out the facebook page for yourself.
