    NYC BMW dealers and independents

    Can anyone suggest the best of the NYC area dealer shops, or a civilized and precise independent? Thank you.

    Are we discussing for a Z8? All the local dealers are good in terms of oil changes and basic maintenance.

    Detailing I would check out Detailing Dynamics:

    Audio etc I would check out AI Design

    I'm in the same boat. Looking for LI shop for mechanicals. Had my Z8 detailed at Detailing Dynamics. Matt is very good.

    I'm not generally a dealer guy, but I've been impressed by BMW Oyster Bay. My prior owner used Locust Valley Coach and Motor...very old world in a good way and able to do most work apart from the warranty minefileds.

    Try Habberstad

    Try Habberstad in Huntington. They service my Z8 for many years and I was very happy with them. I used to use Oyster Bay the service all of my BMW's and was happy with them until I had a falling out with the owner of the dealership. I was his choice to purchase my Z8 from Oyster Bay and was on the waiting list to get the car when it would come in several months later. In the meantime I found one sitting on the showroom floor in Atlantic City from a deal that feel through just 15 mintues before I walked into that dealership. So rather than wait the 6 months I was told by Oyster Bay, I purchased the car on the spot in Atlantic City. The Oyster Bay dealer was so pissed at me for doing this that he had the service department make it undesirable to continue to service the 4 BMW's I owned. That is when I started with Habberstad and was happy with them for many many years until I moved down to Florida to be able to drive the car every day and not have to put it away for the winter.
