Default Glendale - Recommendations for Pre-Purchase Inspection

If anyone has a trusted shop in or near Glendale, I would like recommendations for a place to take a BMW for a pre-purchase inspection.

Any input is welcome.

Thanks Randy. I've had work done at Steve's before. I'm looking for a shop closer to Glendale.

I did a lot of business with the M Shop back in the day. They seemed like a good respectable bunch, I sold a lot of parts to them. They are next to Glendale in Eagle Rock. Is the Cooper going away Dave?

Sam's mcoupe came from Glendale. I think the M Shop did his pre purchase inspection. I think he was happy with them. perhaps send him a message.

Thanks everyone. Unfortunately, this is all OBE.

The salesperson I was dealing with wasn't on board with having a 3rd party check out the car at my own expense.

While it was low miles and under warranty, I still see value in having a used car get checked out by an independent before buying.

That being the case, I'm moving on.
