    Ben is great. I wish he specialized in Mercedes. Nonetheless, I'll be coming here for all my Mercedes maintenance work. Very honest, and his prices are very reasonable.

    Started out looking for other than stealerships for my 1M bimmer. He has done so well by me with that, that I have given him my wife's Macan, my son's Golf and my Audi A3 and now GTI! Never a misstep and besides savings compared to the dealer, you know who will be working on your car!

    I have had a great experience in dealing with a variety of repairs as well getting advise on any BMW I'm looking to purchase which saved me a ton of money. Always a pleasure dealing with 7th gear for any kind of work.

    Ben was amazing! Did a fantastic job repairing a serious issue with older BMW. Communicated well and really helped me out with getting my car back running quickly. The best interaction I've ever had at an auto repair shop!

    I was referred to Ben @ 7th Gear by a fellow BMW enthusiast. He has performed myriad services on my classic BMW from general maintenance to performance upgrades. I’ve always been happy with his quality of work, depth of knowledge and recommendations. He’s talked me down from ideas that I had that likely would’ve spoiled the car, but provided alternatives that made what I was going after possible. I highly recommend him and 7th Gear.
