Good BMW Shops for Pre-Purchase Inspections (Vancouver)

Hey guys,

Just wondering where is a good place in Vancouver for BMW Pre-purchase inspections besides BMW Dealerships.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

I had mine inspected at Nixon and was very happy with them. They were pretty thorough and even checked if the odometer had been rolled back by double checking the mileage readings at previous service intervals.

The guys at Nixon know BMW's and have exceptional customer service, they're also the only place in BC that can do coding for e90/e92's and most likely other models.

Not anymore.. there are tons of ICOM and OPS units out on the grey market.. it is not that expensive either ($500/600). In the end, BMW have to let the proliferation of these tools slide because of the small service network they have in China.

But back on topic, it also depends on what kind of preused car it is? Is it a CPO car etc?
