Agreed. I went there with my bro's E90 330i and they took really good care of it. A couple more dollars than the dealer ($137 after tax and discount vs $125 without tax at Fields), but they did exactly what I wanted with no BS excuses. And they even made time for me in my tight schedule and fast approaching trip (something that Fields refused to do twice). They were even kinda enough to explain to my friend and I how to do an alignment. One of the techs (I think he name was Dan, not 100% positive) there has an E30 and is on CFBMW, and majority of the guys are pretty big car enthusiasts (not just wrench guys). I was even given Mike's (Irish Mike) cell phone number if I needed any adjustments or felt I had any reason to reach him it would be as easy as a phone call. They even have a Koni Challenge car (MK5 GLI Jetta) and a track Mercedes Cosworth 190E and a E46 sedan.

I'm usually one of those guys who is uber paranoid about some random shop or tech working on my car in fear it being treated like crap or beaten on. I'm also pretty quick to find faults when techs or advisers dont know something or do something wrong, but all the questions I had were answered promptly (even the overly outrageous ones) and from what I can tell correctly.

From all the shops I've had work done with or spoken with, these guys are towards the top of my list (right behind PSI). I will gladly recommend them to anyone (esp. enthusiasts) and if it wasn't an 1+hr drive there from my home in Melbourne, I'm pretty all our cars would go there, which I think they will end up going there anyway.
BTW, if you have Gieco or AAA you get a discount.

Irish Mike's get's a big from me.

No, I'm not sponsored by them or work there, just great service and great guys.
