Why Can’t I Just Take My BMW to the Dealership?
We’re glad you asked.
Independent mechanics are different from dealership technicians in important ways.
First and foremost, the people who work on your car at the dealership are commission-based employees, just like the sales staff. How a mechanic is paid changes the way that you and your car are treated.
Commission-based payment means that the more employees sell, the more money they make. That makes sense if you’re selling cars, but if you’re fixing cars, that means you need to add more repairs and services to make more money.
We’ve heard quite a few stories about commission-based mechanics who push extra repairs onto unsuspecting customers. These folks aren’t interested in helping you learn about your car, or even preventing future problems – they’re just out to get a few extra bucks.

Why Choose an Independent BMW Mechanic?
Coast Motor Werk is an independent BMW specialist that puts the customer’s needs first – always.
We pay our employees salaries, not commission, so that they can focus on your BMW’s issues without trying to add a few extra pennies to their pockets.
Our mechanics want to help you get to know your BMW better. We’ll be happy to answer any questions you have about our services, how to take care of your car and more.
And when your service is complete, we’ll explain exactly what we did, why we did it, and even save old parts for you to see what went wrong.

What are Customers Saying About CMW?
“5 stars isn’t enough! They need a 6th! George is awesome, not only friendly and professional, but an honest, local business owner who truly cares about making cars look and run like new again. He communicates clearly about costs and prioritizes the needs of the vehicle. I strongly recommend this place, especially if you own a BMW. It’s a great feeling to know I now have a place I can trust with my car.”
