seems to be more than normal this year....christmas season didnt allow many to make it thru til sping. best of luck.....a master tech is always valuable to someone. unfortunately, not always paid commensurate with value, but that is another story.

Please let us know if you do open up shop Jason. We will miss the dealership and our thanks for all of the courtesies that you and everyone else extended to us over the years.

If the shop thing doesn't work out - any interest in moving to central Ohio? Any Harley experience?

PM me if you want to talk.

That sucks. And unfortunately it is the norm for more than a couple dealerships this past year.

May be a good time to fire up the network of satisfied customers and do some work on your own? A good BMW mechanic can be hard to find.
