GTA/Ontario dealer recommendation for recall work



I have a 2001 M3, serviced exclusively at RMP since my ownership in 2011. Now I need the airbag recall done, and am looking for a recommendation on which dealership to take it to that won't screw it (something else) up. Any ideas? I was originally thinking Maranello, but heard some bad things lately. I'm in Mississauga, but willing to drive just about anywhere within a few hours if the dealer is worth it. I'm also hoping to see if there are any other recalls that I'm entitled to, like the rod bearings, or programming updates.

Thanks!

How about Budds? I plan on taking mine there for the airbag recalls. Just as soon as my wife gives birth and I have some time off to be without the car.

They are more useless than a fork in a soup bowl. I've yet to see them competently handle anything service related. I'd suggest Pfaff if anything.

Pfaff as in Mississauga? Hopefully they replaced everyone from when they were BMW Mississauga, because they're the reason I stopped going and learned how to do most stuff myself. That was in the early 2000's, don't know if they were part of the Remo Ferri group at that time. What about Parkview or Endras?

Yeah, they've a whole new franchise--agreed that the RF group was nothing but bad. I don't know about the other two, never been.

I went to Pfaff twice in the last two years. Never again. Policaro BMW up in Brampton had been nothing but awesome though. They did the battery cable recall on my E90.

I wouldn't say this is even dealer dependent. How many techs are working at these? Maybe 10? They don't just have 1 or 2 guys.

All depends who's working on it.
