    I'm fortunate I was able to find such an amazing shop so close to home. Ben is very thorough and communicates very well, and very informative/knowledgeable. There's a reason there are so many five star ratings listed below, and I highly recommend this shop and will definitely return.

    Great service and pricing. Was very consultative on what actually needed to be fixed and what was lower priority.

    5 star rating I wanted to buy a car from a BMW dealership in Illinois and live in California. I've called different independent service shop that only works on BMW. when I called Ben at 7th Gear he instantly made me feel comfortable enough to ask him if he could do an inspection before I purchased the CPO Wagon. remember I live in California, long story short. I got the car shipped and its everything he said it was. if I lived in Illinois Ben @ 7th Gear would be my car Doctor

    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.
