Ivo@columbus Auto

I just want to let everyone know what a great mechanic and honest guy Ivo is.

He did an amazing job on my car.

Problem: Downpipe rattling on heatshield

He fixed the issue and noticed my wastegate actuator was tightened far too tight by BMW when I went there for the same issue.

He also noticed my front control arm was leaking.

I LOVE when techs actually notice things and tell you before something bad happens.

Conclusion: My car sounds 10X better than before and pulls much harder due to the loosened actuator. He mentioned "don't you notice a power loss" and I didn't think so until now! I feel so happy right now lol.

I HIGHLY recommend Ivo if you care about your car and want it worked on by a true professional. I will go back and see him for my intake valve cleaning 100%.

+1 for Ivo, when I was there Monday to rebalance my wheels, he noticed that one of my tension rod bushings were shot. So the wheels were not the main culprit in my vibration issues.

Haha, Ivo has a 6th sense with our cars.

He's found a couple random issues and some random loose connections on my car just while walking underneath it. Everyone who I've sent there also tells me how he discovered something as well while working on their car.

The best part is he takes his time to explain what he discovered, what it means and how to fix it. I'm always curious about what's going on so he always explains things as he's working or will call me over and turn on his light and show me exactly what's going on.

Top notch work and very honest guy!
