Top quality servicingsales and restoration of BMW cars has been at the heart of The Ashdown Garage in Sussex since our site opened in 1967 as one of the first BMW Main Dealer franchises in the UK. We are the UK’s leading Independent BMW Dealer.

Today our company continues the legacy of excellence synonymous with this legendary marque as independent BMW Specialists. At Munich Legends our BMW trained technicians are proud to work on all BMWs, from M cars to everyday family cars and 4x4s, Alpina or track and race-day cars and of course, classic and historic BMWs in our dedicated restoration workshop. As an independent BMW dealer, we guarantee all our customers an unparalleled, consistent level of personal service and technical expertise, at prices designed to represent better value for money and greater savings over our competition.

We guarantee every customer a top level of comfort and facilities in our relaxing reception area and lounge, and a business lounge, with WiFi, telephone and laptop charging facilities, a guaranteed desk space, and comfy seating. There are also complimentary hot and cold drinks and papers/magazines for those who choose to stay with their car. To make life that little bit easier, we offer a courtesy car service, pick-up/drop-off facilities and holiday park/service places for those who do not wish to wait.

But we’re also proud of the things that help us stand out from the crowd. Whether it’s helping a major car maker and film studio develop cars for a blockbuster movie, or lending technical support for one of the biggest computer games in the world, helping out on shows such as BBC Top Gear, Amazon’s Grand Tour, Car SOS and more, or providing motoring press stalwarts such as Autocar, Octane, Road Rat and Evo – and many others – with technical and market information, Munich Legends is the ‘go to’ place for BMW expertise and assistance, technical knowhow and experience, for fans, journalists, collectors and owners.

There is really nowhere quite like Munich Legends. We have clients in nearly every country across the globe (as well as just around the corner), and Munich Legends’ cars are enjoying life on every continent. Our client base includes world renowned collectors, princes and rock stars, movie companies and even BMW themselves. We have looked after some of our local clients for nearly 30 years – we even offer special discounts for the elderly – and we’re proud of our reputation both in our workshops, and for only selling the very best quality BMWs, all personally signed off to meet our highest standards.

At Munich Legends we enjoy what we do. Why not experience our passion for this amazing brand and discover why we believe that a BMW really is the ultimate driving Legend.

I didn’t have the pleasure of meeting the team but they were all very professional over the phone and via email, they fixed an issue on my e60 diesel which was preventing the car from starting and got me back on the road, hassle free experience and report given on the car with tyre treads and advisories saving a headache when the MOT comes around.
Amazing service

Fantastic service from Munich Legends on my BMW 2002. Amazing how many so-called BMW specialists don't want to work on the older stuff, but no such qualms with ML. Great, honest garage. Will definitely go back. Thank you.
Super company friendly staff and very professional

I had heard good things about ML and saw them carry out some work on a YouTubers channel so I thought I’d look them up, I was very impressed with there website and pictures of works they had carried out on other BMW vehicles I called them up and arranged for my e46 330ci to be looked at by them On arrival I massively impressed with the showroom and collection of cars (I was offered a coffee while enjoying a BMW magazine) I found Stuart and others very polite and respectful As I had travelled 40odd miles to centre they was aware I needed a car and gave me a lovely BMW Alpina for my journey home which was a lovely touch. The problem on my car was sorted with total transparency along the way and I couldn’t be happier with my car and ML service provided I would 100% recommend ML and I will return for my BMW needs Well done Munich Legends

I recently underwent crash repair services by ML, and I must say the level of service was truly exceptional. They efficiently coordinated the retrieval of my car from another BMW main dealer for a quote. Surprisingly, their pricing surpassed that of the BMW main dealer by an impressive 50%, without compromising on the quality of work. While I hope to avoid the need for future crash repairs, I am now inclined to entrust ML with all my servicing needs based on this positive experience. Highly recommended for their competitive pricing and top-notch service.

I have been taking both my E60 M5 and lately my E92 LE500 M3 here for the last 15 years. As always, great service, great expertise, great knowledge, great staff. No hesitation in recomending this very professional set up to everyone who needs BMW specialist workmanship.
