You guys are great. It's good to know that you can trust someone.

by - Verified Customer September 12, 2012

They did not check the actual battery charge in the trunk and 2 days later I had to take it to BMW -- the battery was shot and there was another problem that could have occurred after having it at Bertini's, but I won't be taking it back there.

by - Verified Customer September 11, 2012

Bertinis really seems to know their business.

by - Verified Customer September 11, 2012

Their work is done right and they always explain what is needed now and what you can wait on.

We miss Don Rhode, but not as much as i thought we would! Jared is great!

Great folks that are always honest; we trust them.

by August 16, 2012

Our family was going to Bertini's for many years. The past 4 services on my BMW started with a tune up that kept me coming back for expensive follow up. I had work done on my radiator that began 2 years ago and is still causing problems. I am disappointed that their service has declined in quality.

by August 08, 2012

I feel the cost of my service was extremely expensive ($200 for an oil change, cabin filter replacement, and inspection).

by - Verified Customer August 08, 2012

This is an excellent shop. They are always honest on things that need to be repaired immedately and things that could wait. These guys are great.

by August 07, 2012

good work

by - Verified Customer August 06, 2012

Bertinis is a wonderful shop that is honest and thorough. I appreciate great service.

I depend on Jared for excellent BMW service.

by - Verified Customer August 02, 2012

For over ten years (4 Benz's) I have been taking my cars to Bertinis and have always had great service with very fair prices . The staff always tell in advance what I may need at the next servicing. I have never felt that they have taken advantage of me or of the people I have referred to them. Just a great honest shop.

by - Verified Customer July 29, 2012

Honesty and fair pricing for quality work

by - Verified Customer July 26, 2012

Outstanding, personal service. I have a high trust relationship with Bertinis - a very important aspect of the experience for me.

by - Verified Customer July 16, 2012

They are always very friendly and professional and I have always been completely satisfied with the quality of their work.

by - Verified Customer July 15, 2012

Nothing but a great experience with Bertini's. My BMW is happy and so am I. Highly recommended.

by - Verified Customer July 12, 2012

They gave me a ride home while car in for repairs.

by - Verified Customer July 05, 2012

I have been taking our BMW 325i to Bertinis for years with good results.

by - Verified Customer June 26, 2012

Good service. Fair prices.

by - Verified Customer June 20, 2012

Bertini's German Motors are very honest, and they do excellent work. Where can you find that these days? They charge a lesser price than dealers do as well, for the very same work. I have had nothing but dependable, reliable service with this company. I would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone. Had I known about them when I bought my car, I would have been their customer from the start.

by - Verified Customer June 19, 2012

I have been taking my cars to Bertinis for over 10 years. I have had 3 different VWs. They are always helpful, on time, and have wonderful customer service. They have always been honest and up front with all work needing to be done.

Not a good situation. Here is a tip for the passenger side door with the same condition. Reverse the procedure and you can do the drivers door, good luck.
There is a hole in the door panel that I found (looking at the driver side door) so, here is the fix for anyone who has this problem.

Lock and unlock your doors with the remote a 100 times before trying this fix.
Spray WD40 in every conceivable hole.
Hit the darn thing with a dead blow hammer (try to jar it loose)
If you can hear every actuator operating except the locked door, AND THE LOCK PIN ONLY BOBS UP AND DOWN WHEN YOU PULL THE HANDLE FROM THE INSIDE. then your door is hopelessly locked (double locked) and the actuator has failed and there is not a pretty fix!

order a new actuator (you will be destroying your old one)
disconnect the battery cable (don't want any air bag deployment)
remove the panel from the drivers door.
measure the exact center of the hole directly above the torx screw for the locking mech. (only screw inside the car facing the seat) (the other two are on the edge of the door on either side of the latch).
mark this dimension on your passenger door panel.
Take and awl and (hurts to say this) hit it with a hammer! Hard! once you have a small hole through the door panel material (leather and cardboard).
advance to a small punch and continue to increase your punch sizes until you are able to pull on the interior door handle and it opens the door (the lock rod, post will pop up)
I was able to repair the door panel using some epoxy on the back side and the small hole in the leather with a repair kit (little hole, small amount of silicone may work also).

The car starts up better after running it ...
Since your car is a 2004 and batteries last 4-5 years (hopefully), that would mean it was replaced in 2008/2009. I would say the battery you have in the car is at least four years old, time to be replaced. On the other hand, check the battery again and starter load as someone has previously stated.
ii thinking...maf sensor, or vacuum leak?
If it is a fault code for a lean condition and misfire I would recommend:
Smoke test the intake system for leaks, repair any leaks.
If fault returns it could possibly have a faulty Mass Air Flow Meter

Like the other answer the only way to know what is wrong is to have a diagnostic performed. If you are hearing the air blowing still but can not feel it, then there is a problem with the air doors or control system for the air door. You can make an appointment with us and we can get this repaired for you asap.

now it runs rough when cold.
You will need to read the codes to find out what issue is causing the check engine light to come on. Running rough may be a result of what ever is failing.
