Babbitt Motor in Mesa AZ

Anyone have experience with this shop? I took my car there for inspection, and after I got it back I saw my side mirrors were folded on passenger side. Shop was closed by the time. Saw marks on both sides of the mirror, so a soft scratch of some sort. Was able to buff it off. Should I go back for the repairs they inspected? $480 for a oil filter housing gasket and seal replacement, but not sure if I trust them to do the work after my side mirrors.

I've had a so-so experience with them, and switched to using Arizona Beemer also in Mesa for any work I can't do myself.

Thanks, maybe I'll check them out next time. Eric was very nice about it and gave me a discount for the trouble after I told him I would keep the appointment. I wouldn't be afraid to go back.

I know a) this is an old thread, and b) I'm new here, but the couple that owns and runs the three Babbitt Motor Werks locations are good personal friends of mine. They do honest work and stay on top of newer BMW tech, which is difficult for a lot of indie shops.

I've used them a couple times but have since switched.
