I had a really bad experience with VOB service in Rockville. I now use an independent called Viking in Gaithersburg. They do great job - reasonable hourly rates, and they really know their stuff. An example of maintenance costs - they've quoted me $375 for my 60k service on a 1997 900s convertible. Good luck, John PS i have no relationship with Viking, other than being a sastified customer.
