I have had wonderful luck with My BMW in Monterey. They have consistently done great work for me on three BMWs, including going through the Nikasil issue on my 540i. You will probably have to wait a couple of weeks to get a loaner, but if you don't need a loaner car, I've been able to get appointments within a few days.

Monterey is probably a bit too far away, though.

Which brings me to Claridges. I don't have any direct experience with them, but I've heard good things from others, and they got one very strong recommendation (at least as far as I was concerned): There was an issue with my 540i that would have required me limping the car over the hill and down to Monterey. It was a simple issue, though, and the General Manager at My BMW suggested that I get the car to Claridges (instead of two dealerships that were closer to where the car was located) instead of going through the hassle and expense of towing to Monterey.

Given the quality of work from My BMW, I'd say his suggestion of going to Claridges carries some weight.

Hope this helps.
