German Auto Sports has best price, but they are no where near skytrain and they don't really have an area to wait. I'm also not sure about their certifications. Although, that may not be an issue as Al is really knowledgeable about bmws. If price is your main concern, I would go there.

I went to BJ Autohaus, and didn't like the customer service.

So far, I like the nixon the best. They are more expensive than german auto sports, but cheaper than dealer obviously. They will give you a prompt ride to royal oak station, and pick you up after if needed from skytrain. The shop managers are super professional, and very knowledgeable.
