Thumbs up 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.

I bought both my bikes from Max ... I recommend them. A word of warning - if you finance through BMW and plan on taking the bike out of state (NH) you cannot ride it. BMW finance requires the bike to be registered and insured before it can be ridden away form the dealership.
