Boston-area mechanic recommendations?

Any good (or great) mechanic recommendations in the Boston area (maybe a 20-mile radius) who does a great job diagnosing and fixing problems and also reasonably priced?

I've been going to Paul's Motorsports. He's changed pretty much every fluid there is to change in my car and he fixed a tail light issue. He's prices are good compared to other indi shops I've had quote service and it seems like he's very knowledgeable about BMW's (he formerly worked for a dealer). Fortunately however, I've never needed to have him troubleshoot anything more than the tail light (that grounding issue with the older tail light assemblies).

I've used German Performance Service for 15 years. Marc is a very honest guy and does great work. He may not be the cheapest indy around, but I've trusted him fully with all of my German cars and he has always been great to me.

I have used Turner Service for the last six years both regular service and modifications like suspension and LSD. Prices seem fair and they know their stuff when it comes to mods.

They used to be the same as Turner Motorsport racing and know what works on the track.

Turner's racing team trailers and race cars can be seen providing additional motivation and risk to your wallet

Their website states that as of April 5th, they are no longer booking service appointments for street cars....

Oh, wow. Was there in March and there was no sign yet.

Glad there are many good options shared here

Highly recommend Jake at Wile Motorsport in Walpole as others have said, and also Larin Automotive (Victor) in Norwood for BMW specialty indys. Have had work done at both such as ZF tranny service, welded rear reinforcement bar etc. Both owners super nice and fair prices.

Don't know if you north or south of the city, but I just dropped the m235i off at Import AutoWerks in Braintree for the 60K service. Since I bought this recently with no service records (bit of a crapshoot, I know) I didn't know wat to expect. They went through it, recommended a couple extra things and advised to watch a couple others. $900 for the basic service (plugs, oil flush, coolant flush, etc) which is almost 1/3 of what the same thing cost for my wife's Lexus at the dealer. So, pretty pleased with them so far.

Import AutoWerks in Braintree. Just had the 60K service done on the M235i I bought used with no service records. They were excellent. Did what had to be done, set up schedule for future service, and stayed on schedule and estimate.

Has anyone gone to South Shore Autoworks in Kingston or Baverian in Winchester?

I live in the south shore but work in Burlington.

Rayteam auto in Waltham has been my go to for years, super convenient for me, Frank is a great guy (with a thick German accent) and their shop is beautiful. They know the cars well and work on street and tracks cars, seems reasonably priced for the work and if you talk about cars with him he will tell you what to do and what not to do.
