Mechanic in Iquique

Got stuck in deep stoney track on monday and broke 3 spokes When I eventually got to Antofagusta I was given the name of a BMW specialist in Iquique Sammotos This guy was very good came and collected me from hostel in town as his garage is difficult to find he didnĀ“t have three new spokes but took three from a spare 1150 that he rents hen he would replace when his spares arrive. He then charged me only 80 pounds for a brand new Continental TKC which is only a few quid more than back home. The daughter of one of the partners is fantastic and speaks good English so everything was easy.
Website is sammotos
Phone no area code 57 then 392818
it is best again to phone first as he is very difficult to find
Very highly reccomended
