    I found Foreign Exchange South from this site and I was VERY happy with my service. Austin really knows his stuff and was very familiar with my water pump issue. I had researched this issue on the forums as well but he took the time to explain everything to me. I also had brakes and 60k service done. I also like the "feel" of their small business shop versus the dealership.

    Foreign Exchange South met all of my criteria:

    1) Good service and knowledge (I trust them with my car)

    2) Affordable price (much less than BMWstore)

    3) Seems very straight forward and honest

    4) Great location for Mason / West Chester

    I'll be back for service or mods again.

    New to mason but the partnership has been in Dayton for years. Like having your own private mechanic at a reasonable cost and less than the dealer by far. I will be taking all my cars (5) to Austin and highly recommend him to anyone who wants a trusted service mechanic and business. Trying finding anyone else you can say that about.
