Would love some recommendation for honest, good value, car service with shops familiar with foreign cars (not necessarily exclusively). My old shop (not in Austin) was great, had a reasonable hourly charge, and didn't bother with leather recliners and Wi-Fi -- I'd prefer to not pay for cookies in a lobby.

Just looking for a place that's respectful, honest, and doesn't try to overwhelm you with repairs and costs. I'm comfortable with cars and repairs, so a place that's rough around the edges is fine.

95 BMW, but also have a nice 99 Lexus -- it doesn't need to be an exclusive BMW shop, just a spot that's used to the quirks of some of these cars.

Quality Automotive on South Lamar is good. It doesnt look like much and the guy is matter of fact. He uses good quality parts though and I have found him to be honest, he also charges reasonable rates. I have an Acura and I see BMWs being serviced there but I dont know what all makes he works on.
