Anyone From Calgary?

Just wondering if any members here in Calgary? It would be cool to organize a small meet if there's enough people interested.

Is there a shop in Calgary you recommend for servicing?

Yup, Vitek https://bmwguys.ca They specialize in BMWs.

I haven't had my M5 serviced there (still under warranty), but had my 335i serviced there for a few years. Stand up guy, definitely not the typical shop that looks to make money first. Had an issue with my 335i years ago where the dealership diagnosed that the turbos had to be replaced, took it to Vitek to get them to do the turbo replacement work, but they told me it was just a leaky vacuum hose that took $20 to replace... he definitely could've kept that to himself and charge me $5000 to replace the turbos if he wanted to!

Thanks for the info! I don't mind paying for work just don't want to get ripped off. Everything is running perfect but I'll check them out when the time comes.
