Independent BMW Service shops

I just had my 600 mile service. I usually do my own wrenching but figured I'd take it back to Quaker City Motor Sport so there wouldn't be any warranty issues. They are a great shop and a pleasure to deal with but getting there is a PITA with Philly traffic. I live in South Jersey and would like to know if there are any independent BMW service shops closer to zip 08062. BTW - LOVE THIS BIKE!

I don't know of any independent, but Cross Country BMW in Metuchen has been great to me. I too do all my own wrenching but the few items they looked at my K16 for me under warranty were handled with the greatest of care and professionalism. if I decide not to do the 18000 mile service these are the guys I'll have to it.

As long as you keep records and receipts of oil and filter purchases there should not be any warranty issues with doing your own oil changes.

Did you record us driving a spike through your exhaust ports to maintain future warranty issues?😂
