My advice, my official shop. MAC. As much as these guys take long to handle shit, hahaha, yes they do take kinda long,but they are phenomenal. The day I met them they had not had an ounce of training in HPF cars, but yet they were able to up keep my car for 2 years now with no issues. I have been to shops before where they couldnt fix my issues, but MAC was able to. I would highly express that sometimes its worth the wait to get something done the right way than to get it done twice and three times.
couldnt have said it better^^....for me i was the sucker for a close drive....that didnt work out well at all....now i hike up to LI (which as of feb I wont have to anymore ) to have matt work on my car....i stand by the phrase "you gotta pay to play" and in my case "drive" too

Hey I have a great idea... Since there's no dispute over any other shop, let's just all forget about IMPRESSIVE...??? Better safe then sorry if u ask me?

It's like your boy telling you "Mary is a good fuck" and you hear from somebody she has Herpes.... You gonna take the chance??? Fuck no! GO SOMEWHERE ELSE!

state the obvious in a separate thread.


i, for one, would like to see what kind of response a shop like this can come up with since there are three sides to every story.

One thing that I'm wondering. Every single poster that has to say something about negative about Impressive has less than 10 posts on here?

Called them this morning, my car is getting prepped right now.

does it really matter?

Cheap price= Cheap work...

I know the dude that got his Audi repainted by Impressive and it started to chip away and discolor (orange) in a matter of 2 months..

and Paint...these guys dont use legit color paint...my boys bimmer was painted with Acura silver paint instead of titianum silver...
u ever wonder why Leo left in the first place? its obvious....

I knew this shop since day 1 of opening..and their first Mechanic...
