I have a hard time believing this. There has to be more to the story; that doesnt sound like the Ivo I know. I among many members here have always been very satisfied with his work

I would personally bring my car to real BMW trained mechanic. Price is not always whats important when working on our baby.

This is not first bad thing I hear about Ivo, not every thing is posted on net.

I personally would look for someone with many years BMW experience .

Sorry about your bad experience, that is how to learn I guess.

I started going to Ivo pretty early on when only Dzenno and Farley were vouching for him and I have no complaints and I can see why he has become the goto shop now for a lot of people.

I'm a very obsessive and anal person when it comes to how work is done and I'm a perfectionist and I've never had any issues with Ivo. Like I mentioned before if anything else is wrong with the car even if it's not related to the work being done Ivo always calls me over, pulls out his light and shows me what's up and explains it all to me in detail. Sorry to hear about your experience, doesn't sound like the typical experience people have there.

I just want you to know that I almost died of lack of oxygen due to this post because there is not a single PERIOD in this whole paragraph.

For the love of God, edit your post so its more readable, and people here won't think this is some kind of bs post.

Looks like you had a legitimate problem....sorry to hear man.

Your story is so flawed, when you tell a mechanic just put it back together and let's hope for the best, that's what you got.
Fellow E90 posters disregard everything this kid is saying.
He is just upset because he has to do it twice now.
Ivo is top notch. Period.

Had to repost in here because your so hot headed that you had to make two different threads.
Cheer up man

Hmmm, not sure what to believe here....

I went to do a valve cleaning, oil change, intake/CP install and rear brake pad/rotor install and he did a great job. On top of his quality work, patience and great price!! I can't say that I was displeased with anything he did.

Sorry to hear about your issues man.

Btw, going to BMW to take care of our "babies" is bs...they do hack jobs just as much as the next guy and they charge $$$ for it too. I wouldn't trust them with my car ever, just saying....

and

I had him totally tear apart my 2008 335i and put it back together, with the new parts and with no issues.

And I am getting ready to do it again with the 2011 335is.

Only Ivo and myself touch my car, not even my wife, and all she is allowed to do is seat in it!
