Can an Independent BMW Mechanic Outdo the Dealership?

The BMW brand has always instilled a sense of community in those who are lucky enough to own one of these precision machines. Our Bimmers are a mobile sanctuary, whether racing your aftermarket M4 on the track or cruising to work in your X1 SUV. Whatever you own, it’s nice to know that you’re not alone in your obsession with your ultimate driving machine. The BMW mechanic team at North Bay Bavarian is your resource for BMW questions, repairs and service.

We Aren’t Just BMW Mechanics at North Bay Bavarian

BMW race ready performance kits graphicBMW and its loyal community are always striving to be socially responsible, to bring out the best in our cars, and to have a little fun along the way. In this post, we’ll highlight what it means to be a part of this tight-knit community and how we at North Bay Bavarian do our best to keep it that way.

BMW and its subsidiaries have given over $36 million in donations to educational groups, the community and the arts. Though North Bay Bavarian is a dealership alternative, we strive to emulate these values, delivering exceptional service to our customers and setting examples for others in the industry.

The BMW community is also passionate about its cars and how they run. We are a full-service BMW repair shop in Santa Rosa, and we also take on custom projects when your inner-racer comes out. We can install performance BMW upgrades and even overhaul your car’s body with roll cages and suspension modifications. There are many rally events throughout the U.S. that BMW owners can attend to check out other enthusiasts’ cars and get ideas for their own. In addition, there are numerous dedicated forums that bring owners together to talk about their cars and receive assistance. No matter how involved you are in the BMW community, we know you want to bring out the best in your car. Our goal at North Bay Bavarian is to keep your car running smoothly no matter what the road throws at it.

We’re A BMW Shop That Doesn’t Take Itself Too Seriously

We know that you drive a BMW for the thrill of the ride. If you’re going to be a part of the BMW community, you need to have a sense of humor. Every April fools, BMW United Kingdom creates advertisements aimed at capturing the fun of owning a BMW and poking fun at themselves in the process.

Examples include an ad for a movable steering wheel for drivers that frequently cross the English Channel into France, a badge washing system to keep that little emblem looking good and shiny, and an in-cabin oven to cook dinner on the way home from work.

While North Bay Bavarian is not trained to fix in-car ovens just yet, we do offer BMW service and repair in Santa Rosa that can get you and your vehicle back on the road to enjoy the thrill of driving. We are humbled to be a piece of such a tightly-knit community and aim to serve valued BMW owners like yourself. To schedule an appointment with North Bay Bavarian, call 707-545-0820 or email
