Welcome to My BMW Blog

Welcome to My BMW Blog

I began this blog in order that everyone can get a glimpse of what a BMW is all about.  Throughout, I’ll be covering all years of BMW’s in order that everyone can take something from this and it’s not a waste of bandwidth.  I am part owner of La Jolla Independent BMW Service, Parts and Restorations in San Diego.  I’ve been around BMW’s for about 11 years and have been professionally working on them for the last 8 years.  We are one of the National Technical Advisers for the BMW Car Club of America and we pride ourselves on top notch service, honesty and fair pricing.

It is my hope that even if you do not own a BMW, you’ll find the info here useful and humorous.   I promise I won’t be too hard on customers’ cars that get a mention here, but it’s all in fun and a learning experience.  So, I hope you enjoy this blog and feel free to send friends and foes links that may help them in any way.

    Hi –

    I just ran across your blog while searching for suggested maintenance advice for my 2002 330i. I couldn’t stop reading your blog until I finished from newest post to the first post. I appreciate the good information you provide — along with the humorous stories of cars that have been brought in.

    Thanks again!

      Thanks Mike!

      Glad you have found something of use in the blog! Thanks for your comments and keep on top of your 330i, they are great cars that will serve you well if properly maintained.

      Take Care.

    Looking at buying my first BMW and it’ll have to be used. Great info in this blog. It’s very important for me to find a knowledgeable and honest mechanic for the vehicles I own as I plan to get 100K miles from car I buy. Sounds like you’ve got a popular shop here in SD and I’ll have to check you out!
