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.

Great service and communication.

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.

I can’t say enough good things about my experience here. All I can say is that they definitely live up to their name. Took my e30 bauer in for full service as car had been sitting in garage for years and was running really rough. Thanks to Sean and team car now runs like new. So impressed. Thank you. Gavin.

I recently had the pleasure of dealing with Munich Legends, and my experience was nothing short of exceptional. As a BMW enthusiast but rookie, I was in need of some expert advice, and I decided to reach out to Munich Legends based on their stellar reputation in the automotive community. What set Munich Legends apart was their willingness to share their specialist BMW knowledge for free. This level of commitment to customer satisfaction is truly commendable. I initially contacted them seeking advice on a technical issue I was facing with my BMW, and to my surprise, they were more than happy to assist. The standout individual during my interaction was Nick from the parts department. Nick's depth of knowledge and passion for BMWs were evident from the outset. Not only did he provide valuable insights into resolving my issue, but he went above and beyond by offering additional tips and tricks on where to find certain parts that are no longer made. It's not every day that you come across a business that genuinely cares about its customers and takes the time to share its expertise without any financial obligation. Munich Legends' commitment to fostering a sense of community among BMW enthusiasts is truly commendable. The wealth of knowledge and genuine passion for these iconic vehicles that Munich Legends embodies is a testament to their status as a true asset to the BMW community. In conclusion, my experience with Munich Legends was nothing short of legendary. The free expert advice, especially from Nick in the parts department, showcased their dedication to customer satisfaction and their commitment to fostering a strong BMW enthusiast community. I highly recommend Munich Legends to anyone seeking top-notch service, genuine expertise, and a true passion for BMWs.

Took my BMW F30 335D here for a gearbox service. I provided my own parts and the work was completed within 1 day and was available to collect the following morning. Having struggled to find a garage that would offer this service for a reasonable price, I'm glad I found Munich Legends, the hourly rate is £99+VAT, much cheaper than a main dealer. I took the offer up of a loan car which happened to be a manual Mini Cooper S.. quite a nippy car too! The car can be loaned either on a "replace the fuel you use" or "0.30 pence per mile" basis. Total cost for their work was £118.90, using provided parts. Overall highly recommended and would definitely use going forward for servicing and repairs.
