Rick Row opened North Bay Bavarian in 1987, becoming one of the first BMW specialists in the Santa Rosa/Sonoma area. North Bay Bavarian has grown into the area’s largest and most trusted BMW service shop. Many of our valued customers have been there since day one, and now we’re even seeing their kids come in to service and modify their cars.

Other BMW service shops in the area have come and gone, but North Bay Bavarian has remained because of its commitment to professional and efficient service. We specialize in providing superior service for BMW and Mini vehicles, and intend to keep it that way.

Over 3 Decades of Experience!

With over three decades of experience in Bavarian performance, we have learned a lot along the way. NBB excels in trouble-shooting and problem-solving BMW and Mini vehicles new and old. We treat every vehicle as if it were our own and know that you have a schedule to stick to.

At North Bay Bavarian, we do our best to ensure complete satisfaction with every service. We are a family business in it for the long run. Come in to our shop to see what sets us apart from the rest.

“From my past experience at the dealer, I never would have considered owning another BMW until I found James and Logan at NBB. They had me back on the road the same day at a very reasonable price.”
