    Does anybody know of any reputable bmw specalists in the suffolk/north essex area. I have a z3 m coupe that is due for an inspection, and think its time to stop paying main dealer prices. I have used cpc in uxbridge to have my valve clearances checked and was very pleased with them. But a 4 hour round trip is too far.

    Anyones help will be much appreciated.

    Is Duxford close enough? Managed to blow my engine before Christmas and main dealer's were useless (long and boring story!). So I've just had my engine replaced and he's done a cracking job. He's a BMW specialist and worked for them for years. Can dig out his details if you're interested.

    Prestige Cars in Ipswich (don't have a number sorry)

    They specialise in BMW & Merc I believe.

    I know a guy In Clacton On Sea... who used to work for BMW in Colchester... now Independant. I've just had an inspection done... and he charged me peanuts and also did more than i asked for.

    Dont know if thats a bit far for you though.

    Thanks everyone who's posted i now have some places to look into.
    By any chance has anyone had any dealings with Angus buchannon workshop in leavenheath on the suffolk essex boarder. Its a local garage who specialise in bmws its been there for years and has loads of old bmws out the front that never seem to move, probably used for spares. To be honest it looks pretty rough on the outside but i know this doesn't necessarily mean its a bad place to go. I dont know anybody whos used them to ask.
