GOOD INDY SHOPS NATIONWIDE

After seeing numerous threads from forum members looking for good indy shops in their town/state, the idea came to me that it would be advantageous to have the info posted on one thread. If you know of a good indy in your area please post the name and location here, comments too. LIST LAST UPDATED ON 2-4-15

Began a Canada list below US state listings.

Alabama

Damn good idea...hope the Thread will keep going.
I have GOOG'd for that kind of info before, for X5, my Vette, and my motocycles, but the usual suspect 'lists' are thin, or very outdated, imo.

NEway, here is my contribution(s), based on personal experience:

-German MotorWerks Asheville,NC Scott & Liz are owners. Not cheap, but NASCAR like cleanliness, quality work, do nothing but BMWs, PCars and a few MBs.

German Motor Werks of Asheville, Inc.

-Pine Ridge Imports Naples, FL

Pine Ridge Imports Of Naples | Auto Repair Naples FL | BMW Repair 34109 | Mini Repair Naples FL | Mercedes Repair 34109 | Lexus Repair Naples FL

I make sure to carry a rather extensive tool kit when I road trip the X, including torque wrenches, Bentley, fluids, spare belts/hoses/bulbs, jump cables, gas can (I am one of those who don't stop for gas until the --- appear in the range display)...... but I know it's just a matter of time B4 I will need to call AAA for a tow and provide them with a shop address in a location I am unfamilar with. Hope others here will be able to use the info provided in this thread for that purpose. Nothing worse than having your vehicle on a flatbed and NO IDEA where to take it!

Trying to link to a similar thread on another forum, but keep getting an error everytime.
Thread name "Name your favorite local indy shops! looking to compile a list" on Bimmerfest - BMW Forums
Maybe someone can search and link it here for the benefit of others.
