    Hi all,

    I'm not sure if this is the right section to ask about this, but can anyone recommend a good BMW garage/mechanic in or near Preston?

    Here's my story:
    The first mechanic I used was good and thorough, but did not have any specific knowledge of BMs, and in fact, he openly disliked BMWs. I asked him recently what needs to be done before the MOT and he says "Get a new car". This pissed me right off (especially that he thought his pitiful 2.0 Cougar was way better than my beemer - can you believe this?!). So I decided I won't be using him again.

    Anyways, I had this collision, just a light bump, but as a result needed to sort my bumper and bits of front chassis out, went to another garage, where the owner at least appreciated that my car was a nice machine. Unfortunately, they did the paint job quite appallingly... I had to come back twice to sort things they missed (or messed up) and I'm still not 100% happy with the outcome.

    Now, my car's due for an MOT this month, and also I want to get it serviced properly - but I don't want to take any chances this time... If you know of a good garage, where they know and like BMs, AND will charge me fairly - please do let me know. Any info will be appreciated.

    Thanks - I saw them in the "sticky" thread, I was just hoping for some garages in Preston itself...
    If not, then I'll go to Bolton - although that's a good half an hour's drive away...

    Found these guys MMC Motorcare - The German Auto Centre, you could possibly assume they specialize in BM's along with other German marques.
