Should you trust the dealer or an independent shop?

Should you trust the dealer or an independent shop?

  So you are experiencing some issue with your German vehicle. Whether you own a BMW or Mercedes Benz you know that you own an awesome albeit very complicated vehicle. You want to go to the most competent and trusted service center for your vehicle and you don't want to feel like you've been ripped off!

Why asking for "price" is the wrong question to ask

So you own a German Car (maybe its a BMW, Audi, Mercedes Benz, Mini Cooper or Volkswagen) and you are looking for an auto repair shop to service your vehicle.

You ask friends and family what to do. You go online and google some quick answers for your particular problem whether its a noise you hear, a fluid dripping from your car or what is the next maintenance service you need. You then go on yelp or type in a google search for the best auto repair shop in your area. Armed with all this information you call up a shop and ask, "Hey I have a noise coming from my car, I think its a gyromotion arm, how much?" The shop gives you a price and you go on and call the next shop on your list. Each shop gives you a different price. Which one do you choose? The cheapest price, right?
