Just met up with Kevin, he came all the way out to LA from SD
he did an inspection II as well as a few other things.

Honestly I think he is better then the dealer. He's very meticulous and he's the type of guy I want working on my car. I typically do my own work because I'm stubborn and don't want to pay the dealer but I've gotten lazy and Kevin is the man!

Kevin came over for a valve adjustment and belts yesterday. In the process, we found a broken hub..
I can't thank him enough because my car was a ticking time bomb. I was watching the whole time and he works fast, meticulous, knowledgeable and took the time to answer all my questions and explain everything he was doing. great guy, VERY trustworthy and does great work! He'll be the one fixing my Vanos once all my parts come in and i can't wait until he finishes and i get to drive my M again. will definitely hit him up in the future!

I hit up Kevin to get a Valve adjustment, new gaskets, and spark plugs. He was very knowledgeable, worked quite fast and professional. He is also a funny guy too. Since Kevin seems to find a lot of M's with the Vanos issues, I was super nervous once we took the valve cover off. He checked it all out and luckily everything was 100% ok. for reference I have a 2002 M3 132k miles. After he was finished with everything he always double checks, just to make sure. The car now runs very smooth, very responsive, and seems a lot faster now. Thanks so much Kevin!
