    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.

    Ben does a great job at a fair price. I’ve been bringing 2 of my cars here for several years now and have been very satisfied.

    5 star rating Ben was fantastic! He provided great service at a reasonable price. Ben and the lady that works with him (unfortunately I didn't catch her name) were both very friendly and helpful! Ben got my car done a lot sooner and for less money than he originally estimated. Great experience! I will definitely be taking my car back here and will recommend them to others!

    Ben is a outstanding mechanic and knows his BMW's very well. I've taken both of my BMW's to his shop and he gets the job done quick,clean and at a very well price. I will be coming back to his shop with any other problems my cars may have.

    5 star rating Absolutely Amazing!  Great place to bring your car to a very skilled and super diagnostician to figure out the problem.  I was amazed by how clean his shop was and how much of an BMW enthusiast  Ben was.  I knew I was in the right place.  He figured out what was going on and fixed the problem.  Thank you again Ben,  I will be back for regular maintenance and some additional things.

    5 star rating Met Ben thru BMW CCA and could tell trustworthy immediately.  Turns out he is also quite competent and efficient.  Has done mods and maintenance on my rare 1M bimmer and I now feel that don't even need to ask how much because I know he will be fair and stand behind his work.  HIGHLY recommended, even if it means I might have to wait in line; he deserves success.
