I've only had good experiences with the two independent shops:

Burnaby: Nixon Automotive (They get pretty busy)
Vancouver: Blitzkrieg Autowerkes (they have a former BMW dealership tech there)

There's also Brian Jessel Autohaus but I've never taken my car there. They're a Revscene sponsor I believe.

CG.

Whatever you do though, just keep this in mind:
Oil change ended up in court

Wouldn't take my BMW anywhere but CG. Chris is fantastic as an informative and honest. ie. During the PPI, the receptionist quoted a lower repair price than the actual repair cost. Chris honored the lower price without hesitation.

My car is booked into Nixon for tomorrow, where I have gone many times and keep going back to. They are busy for a reason - they are good guys and they know what they're doing.
