Hi all,
I'm looking for a a BMW specialist, preferably an //M specialist in Oxfordshire or Berkshire. The closest I've managed to find are K&M Autos in Maidenhead or CPC in Uxbridge. Are there any others in the area?

What do people think of either K&M or CPC?

The indy I normally used has sold his garage to go and run a vinyard in New Zealand, he was pretty good but there's no way I'm commuting to his vinyard for a service. ;)

Any help much appreciated...

I'm not sure (others may confirm - or a call to Phil @ CPC) but there may be rental snotter that
you can borrow while your car is in - worth checking.

In the end I couldn't contact Phil. I left a few messages on his answer phone but never got a call back. :evil:

Instead, I booked it in with K&M Auto Techniks in Maidenhead (http://www.kmautotechniks.co.uk) 01628 781010 as I'd seen a recommendation on here years ago.

Simply put, I can't recommend these guys high enough 8-) . They're really polite, really knowledgable about the coupe, have excellent customer services and aren't expensive. I took mine in for an inspection 1 plus an aircon regas and some other work.

Here are the scores on the doors:
Insp 1 £335
Aircon £64
Handbrake fixed £50
Drivers door disassembled and reassembled (previously broke by another garage) £50
New wipers and bulbs £53
Total £552

They spent quite a long time looking at the car and made a list of all the things which might need doing at the next service. An all together thorough and meticulous approach to servicing.

I'm going to use K&M from now on and would recommend them to any coupe owners in the Oxfordshire / Berkshire area.

A shame that CPC couldn't do it, i have his mobile number if the landline doesn't get answered.
If anyone wants it drop me a PM.
