Ok Im thinking about purchasing a 540. My understanding seems to be that the bulk of the probs with this car is in the cooling system, radiator, water pump etc. With some probs being electrical. Now Im very mechanically inclined and am most likely capable of handling most of the repairs of this car, except for electrical thats something i really should learn how to do.
So the question came up who does repairs for you better:
The Bimmer shops- which apparently have more experience handling these cars at about half the price of the dealership.
The dealerships-have better access to bmw specific equipment, codes and such
What is your expereience befoe I take this route.
