    Hi guys
    Hope to buy a 320d coupe fairly soon, I'd like to use a local specialist rather than main dealer labour rates, anyone have any suggestions in the bristol/gloucester area ?

    Welcome to the forum.

    Clayton cars in Bedminster would be my preference. If not try Beemer Redeamer in Keynsham.

    None that I could recommend from personal experience. Hopefully someone else local should be along soon.

    In the meantime you could always read the reviews here: http://www.unixnerd.demon.co.uk/bmw.html

    I know its a little further than you want to travel.. But Grants of Wellington.. BMW Independents..... Quality workmanship and good labour rates as well.
    And even over the phone are happy to offer advice, and most importantly.. They get the diagnosis right 1st time,, which saves beer tokens.
    They are situated in Wellington,Somerset. Right on the junction 26. so about 45 mins from Avonmouth.

    Nige,

    Steve Rowley (BMW Specialist) in Cheltenham seems to have a very good reputation among BMW owners where i work. I've been to him once and he seemed genuine. He ran a diagnostics for me a while back, didn't find anything and didn't charge so i was happy with the service
    Look him up here: http://www.steverowleyvehicleservices.co.uk/

    Take a look at the following thread i've just created it might be of interest also:

    I would trust them with my car

    I have known James for a fair few years now and I can honestly say that these guys know their business

    They also specialise in the breaking of cars too which is handy if you need a part but don't want to buy brand new
