Max BMW in NH - What BMW Service Should Be!
The ABS modulator on my '99 R1100S died and could not be brought back to life w/ any fault code clearing or diagnostic procedures. The modulators can not be rebuilt.
The replacement part from BMW was about $2100! Max offered to discount the part to something in the $1800 range - but still a lot of money for a 9 year old bike (eventhough it is "mint" w/ less than 10K miles).
I found a used modulator with the correct part number off of eBay (for only $65 - a bargain/steal - they usually bring $500 or so) and Max BMW happily swapped out the original one on my bike. The used one checked out fine (after being recoded for my R1100S - the donor bike was an R1150GS).
Max charged only $265 for the entire service (remove and replace modulator plus flush & fill brake system). That's $40 less than my local dealer charged to just flush the system on the same bike a year ago.
These guys at Max BMW 1st Rate and are willing to do whatever it takes to satisfy a customer without turning on the wallet vac every time. Clean shop, professional staff, and a pleasure to work with.
They have a new customer - all my major service in the future goes to these guys.
