Thumbs up Dublin, Ireland: BMW mechanic

Hi,

I know a great BMW mechanic in Dublin, Ireland...

Who: Grattan BMW (ask for Eugene)
What: BMW garage, mainly cars, but does BMW bikes as well.
Where: Lower Mount St, Dublin 2, Ireland, phone +353 1 678 5511
Comments: Down to earth and sensible, not like those rip-off-merchants (you know who you are, Maddocks) in Bray.

They are no longer at Lower Mount St, they have moved. They are now beside Harolds Cross bridge, behind the nissan garage. Phone numbers still the same though.

And they are very helpful if you call in for advice.

Ah! Thanks for that. I have a service booked in for my R1150RT with them in a few weeks, and I would have been arriving there at 08:00 on a Saturday, with no idea where they had moved to.

Thanks for the Info.
I live only 100km from there and like everyone else I am sick of the rip off merchants.
I am going to ride my 1200GS from cape town to Cairo in july ( actually I will finish in Israel).
I 'll give those guy a shout straight away as I need to talk to someone who will give me some straight forward advice on how to do running repairs
