Ah erm no not really!!!!

I was taken to these places by a friend and just popped them onto my GPS. I will see if he can send me the address details (for all) and contact number for the HB/Touratech guys.

But if you do a search in Google Maps for those co-ordinates it will give you a map of the locations.

The name of the BMW dealer is something like Williamson and Jeffries(not cheap,more like Euro prices.)Found place for tyres,probably one of the coordinates given.I remember it wasn't too far from BMW dealer and near a large shopping center which was on a corner.They put me on to another shop couple of blocks away where i could get some brake pads.Took the ones i bought from BMW dealer back as such big difference in price.
I will take a look at google earth to see if i can spot the street.
