I drive a 2003 BMW 530i manual, and it's not a car I would let just anyone work on. But these guys have been taking care of my cars for years, including a previous BMW and a VW Passat wagon, and here are two words you don't always hear about auto repair places: they are HONEST and EXPERT. They are also timely and give you the straight story. TIm is a master mechanic, especially when it comes to German and other exotic and high-end makes, but these are also the guys to take your every day American ride to for oil changes, brakes, and regular service. I live in North Park and I'm happy to take the few minutes to drive out to Santee to get this quality of RELIABLE and trustworthy service.
