Default BMW mechanic Montgomery County?

Hi everyone:

My brother is asking me for recommendations for an independent shop for his wife's Z4 E85.

They are located in Gaithersburg/Darnestown and would be willing to travel a reasonable distance to a good shop.

Any help is appreciated. Thank you.

Try Sigy’s in Rockville, by the metro station. Or Dan Martin’s on Beechcraft Rd. in Gaithersburg.

I'm going to Scott's Automotive tomorrow for the first time. They were a Volvo focused shop that moved into the spot in the Parklawn area that autowerk-autotoy was in, and have expanded to BMW. I can chime in with my impressions.

So far I'm happy with Scott's Automotive. I'll likely continue to use them. They appear to pay attention to the details, and the car was completed as promised. Hard to know for sure, but they did seem a little pricey. Its still mostly a Volvo shop. Mainstream kind of place, not for racey type things.

Thank you John for the follow-up.
