If you know of any BMW related contacts (mechanics, spare part suppliers, etc.) in Ireland can you please let us know so we can build up a database of them.
Either post the details here or email them to me (bmw@kbannon.com).
Thanks

If you aren't tethered to a dealer for any reason, there are German car specialists out near Malahide, Autocheck. Tel 846 4110.  I found them to be great every time.

ooops.

I just stuck my details up in the contacts section. I thought they would have been emailed for approval first! Its a bit of a mouthful so if it can be changed or summarised, lets do it.

Brian.

I added my brother to the list. Daire Collopy in Terenure. Very good for fixing all my mistakes when I take on jobs that are too big for the front garden.

Hi

I recommend Furleys. They resprayed my e30 cabriolet colour change from white to sliver in May 01. All panels outside/inside done, inside boot but leftout engine bay due to expense. The paint work is still imaculate.

Incidentally I'm on the lookout for a silver 635csi in vvgc and will be selling the cabriolet 320i Sliver, blue hood, blue leather, 83,000, Wind shield to make space for this as living in Dublin city

Regards

dave

For those in the Mid West, I can vouch for John Roche listed in the contacts.  He's in Gort.  When I got my e30 325i in April I wanted it gone over with a fine tooth comb to get it from 98.5% to 100%.  I dropped down to talk to him and see what he was like.  He has the wall papered with BMW training certificates so he knows his way around them.

His took loads of time to look it over and advise on work needed before we agreed to do anything.  He did go though it with a fine tooth comb, including all belts, exhaust back box, inspection service, rocker and sump gaskets (tiny leak from sump gasket), tappets, checked all bushes, ball joints, track rod ends, replaced a couple of gearbox mounts that were showing their age and more right down to a couple of broken clips on the front spoiler. 

It took a little time because not too many places are carrying some of the more unusual spares in stock (took 2 weeks for Keogh's in Limerick to do a similar job on the e30 convertible a few years ago). 

Cost was over €800 but only about €200 was labour.  Great value for money.  If you have a toy you love, he's well worth the trip to look it over for you.

Pity is, I only had it back 2 weeks before dozy mare in MPV, etc.....

Now: BMW 523i SE '00, 318i SE - e91 '07, 325i Coupe '93.

Prev:
e46 328i SE Touring, 330Ci, 318Ci.
e39 523i SE.
e36 325i Coupe *2, 323i SE, 316iSE.
e30 325iSE 2dr, 320i Conv, 320i 2dr, 316i.
