  • Just a quick note to tell you how much I appreciate your service. I always know when I take my BMW to you I get the best service at the best price. You always take the time to call and let me know what you have found, if it is different in cost from what I expected, and if there is additional maintenance that should be performed "while you are in there." This is very important to me, especially. I know when you performed the work, I don't have to worry about any transportation. Believe me, there are enough things to worry about in college without worrying about my BMW ! You have repeatedly demonstrated both your deep knowledge of your craft and your personal honesty in delivering it to the public. Thank you

  • BMW Mini Repair did some minor repairs on my car. Once they were done, they gave me a run through, to let me know what I was paying for. Overall, it was a good experience.

  • I was impressed with BMW Mini Repair from the start when I first called inquiring about their services. They were courteous, helpful, and above the norm with excellent service. They are perfectionists, and their pristine shop is the first indication of that. I took my Mini Clubman to them for what seemed a minor problem, but was in fact not. It was diagnosed and repaired in a timely manner, and the price was more than fair. I am so pleased I found BMW Mini Repair as I am confident my Mini is in good hands.

  • I have been bringing my car to these guys for several years now and recommend them to everyone. Besides being some of the most competent mechanics, their ethical and customer service orientation is like having an brother in the business.

  • We're been taking our cars to Ronnie for at least 15 years. He has always done right by us and kept our "classic" older cars in great shape. He always tells me what I have to do now and what can wait. No matter when I take the car in, he seems to be able to work on it quickly. The price is fair.

  • My BMW was serviced a few times at my request. I am happy customer. I can testify that the service and price was better than the Beverly Hills Dealer.

    My 1st service out of warranty & I wam impressed by the thoroughness of the inspection of my vehicle. My service A was 40% less than the dealer with the same level of quality.

    I took my 1993 MBZ 300 TE Station Wagon in for servicing. They told me it would take about a day. A couple hours later they called me to tell me I needed some additional work. They even sent me an email of what was needed (which was great, the dealer doesn't do this). I checked out what they sent me and told them to go ahead. When I went to get my car it had been washed and vacuumed and all the work looked great. They even cleaned the motor! Then they showed me all the parts they replaced (which the dealer has never done). My car ran beautifully. I would recommend Rafi Autotech to anyone with a brain in their heads! I have read all these bad reports about them and I don't believe any of them! I think they are confused with another place. Because this place is the best one I have found! I will be bringing my Mercedes here for now on! Thank you, guys, Robert

    I had no idea where to go...all I know is that I was never, ever returning to Santa Monica MBZ, which used, abused and cheated me for 3 years. I called several different places and felt very comfortable with these guys at Rafi Autotech, on the phone. They are friendly, honest, professional, factory trained and all the factory tools and computer scanner, quick and explain everything. My brakes were fixed in less than 24 hours, and my car washed when I picked it up Santa Monica MBZ used to return my car dirtier than I left it!. I am very pleased with the reasonable pricing 25 % less than MBZ dealer. The friendly and quality service I received. Thanks I will be back!
