    Southwest FL Service

    Hello all. I am moving my Z8 from the midwest to the Naples FL area. Any comments on the BMW dealer there? Also, any recommendations on a top notch detailer?

    Thanks!

    I also keep a BMW K12GT here. Some days the decisions are so hard. The Z8 is in Kansas City. I'm reluctant to bring it out here with all of the gravel that seems to stay on the road year round....

    The Wife

    Good point. She'll probably drive it once and done. This car is going to be housed in Vail, so no real track time, but a lot of mountain drives. Woo hoo!

    I have the same problem and my dealer cannot seem to get any kind of break from BMW on this. I only have 13,000 miles and my car has always been garaged also. The fix at full price is about $5,000.
