    Default Local socal bmw service shop recommendations

    Please let me know a local southern california BMW service shop to service my 1995 BMW 525i based on your experience.

    My car is currently leaking brake fluid. I have to fill up the brake fluid reservoir once every 3 to 4 weeks. It currently has about 188K miles.

    Thank you.

    There are two rubber grommets that hold the overflow reservoir to the master cylinder. These get hard and brittle and crack over the years. If you haven't replaced these, there's a good chance this is where it's leaking. Mine started leaking right about 185k miles too. This is like $15 worth of parts and you can do it yourself pretty easy.
