If you own a german-made car and live anywhere near Costa Mesa, Bimmer and Benz is quite literally the only choice for a mechanic, whether you're looking for major work or routine maintenance.
Ignoring the fact that Rocky is a wonderful, smart, and pleasant person, this place does not skimp in any way. Synthetic oil is ordered from Europe to ensure its contents, technicians are smart and well-trained, and pricing is incredibly reasonable.
You might shop around and find that you can get an equivalent job done for cheaper somewhere else, but when it comes to cars, you get what you pay for. At Bimmer and Benz, you're paying for unequaled care and attention, plus smiles and pleasantries when you walk into the place.
As I mentioned, Rocky is really the linchpin that holds the operation together. He is incredibly knowledgeable and straight-shooting; he tells it like it is. I specifically started my relationship with the shop while shopping for used cars. I had Rocky and his staff check out a car for me and he saved me from purchasing a car that needed close to $4k in repairs. He then clued me in to another used car that was perfect for my purpose so thanks to him, I'm now mobile and with a car I know will be in great shape.
Thanks for an unparalleled experience, Rocky.
PS This place also has two of the most friendly shop dogs I've ever encountered!
