Great service. We believe these guys give us our moneys worth in service and knowledge. You should at least get an estimate from these guys.

I just took my BMW for servicing to A's Garage and he did an awesome job quickly and professionally. The price was also exceptional; I paid 1/4 of what I would have had to pay for service at the dealer.

I brought my car in with what I assumed was a terribly expensive noise. I really appreciated the extra concern and honesty. Thanks so much A's Garage for making this stress-free.

Fast and inexpensive. Have to go with five stars. Let's face it getting the car worked on is not much fun. All in all it was a great experience.

I took my BMW in for an oil change. They did it right away and charged a reasonable price. You can watch them do the work so there's no worry that they are not doing the work they said they would or that they change out the air filter and claim you need a new one.

Had an auto problem. . They fixed it quick and easy (less than 2 hours). The price was right and should I get into car trouble again, I'll be back. But hopefully not!

Ive been around looking for an honest shop that can do my BMW's right without any hassles and A's Garage proved that they can do the job right. Alvin has the technical skills that surpasses most of the so called "trained" technicians out there. He knows how to save you money and how to approach a problem and find the best solution that is cost effective and beneficial to your budget. They say an older BMW will just give you headache to maintain, but in reality if you have somebody that can fix your car right like Alvin, that dilemma will not be a problem at all.

As a business owner myself I realize the value in customer service and value in the work being done. A's Garage far exceeded the BMW dealership in both customer service and the work being done! When you find a shop like A's Garage and a mechanic like Alvin Isidro who says, "Working on BMW is my passion," you can only hope for good fortune for them!

Let me be the first to say that the experience at A's Garage is by far one of the best experiences I've ever had with a mechanic. It's a small shop but Alvin Isidro took the time to look at my 2002 X5 drivers side door that didn't open and a window that didn't role up. Alvin diagnosed the problem, took pictures of the failed parts and put a temporary fix till the parts came in the next day. The next day, I was in and out within 3 hours.

My search for an honest mechanic is OVER! I am so thankful to have met Alvin. He is the greatest! I have been without the use of my 328i convertible top for almost as long as I've owned the car (I bought it used), have taken it to numerous other shops (including McKenna BMW - what a rip-off!) and no one could get it working. A 5 minute conversation with Alvin and a day working on the top and bam! It was fixed! Thank you Alvin! You have a customer for life!

Alvin showed me everything and explained everything in detail. He even drove the car after it was fixed for 40 miles to make sure that the engine light did not go back on. I picked my car this morning and everything was done perfectly and smoothly. he even replaced my light that was out and fixed my tire pressure for free. I am more than impressed and satisfied. I paid 588 dollars, and I am truly grateful I found him. If you have a BMW I strongly encourage you to call him. He is really the best BMW mechanic I have ever been to. Thanks for everything Alvin.

Let me start off by saying that if there were 10 stars id give Alvin 11. He is just truly amazing. I failed my smog test on a newer BMW X3; my check engine was on. I went to my old mechanic and he found 3 things that were wrong with it and gave me an absurd estimate of 1500 dollars. I had a feeling something was wrong with the estimate so I found Alvin through yelp. I went to Alvin and he told me the two real things that were wrong with it; proving the fact that my old mechanic was a crook who has been ripping me off for years with parts that did not need to be replaced and charging me extra for labor.

"I went in fearing my A/C compressor on my 2007 mini was shot. Alvin and I spoke on the phone and he told me to bring it in to take a look at it. He greeted me with a handshake and a smile, looked under the hood and discovered it was simply a free-on recharge that was needed. I went to 2 shops before and they both claimed it was my A/C compressor that needed fixing. ($1,400 job)
BUT, Alvin assessed the situation, found the problem and I was out of the garage in 20 minutes and spent $15."

Best Mechanic. Alvin and his staff are courteous, professional, and his prices are extremely reasonable. I was taking my pre-owned 530i wagon to a "specialist" in South Pasadena. Every visit cost between 1-2k, and I left with the same issue I came in with. After a over a year of multiple repairs for a stalling battery (stupidly continued going back because of a friend's referral), I tried A's. He was packed and busy, but he took a few moments to perform a diagnostic. He gave me 3 scenarios, thinking that the issue was as simple as replacing the battery. I was apprehensive about his diagnosis because the former mechanic replaced the battery, and said the problem was an electrical issue. I apprehensively got a new battery at Alvin's suggestion and voila! It has been a year since that first visit to Alvin, and my car hasn't stalled once! I am so so happy to have found an honest mechanic! Take your bmw to Alvin!

Alvin is the best! He saved me a ton of money where an unscrupulous individual could have ripped me off. He's very helpful over the phone as well. And he's open on Saturdays. Even though it's a drive for us to get to him, it's worth it. We are so happy that our Mini has found a wonderful place to be serviced.

I had to work but because the location is not near where I was, he worked with me to get my car after hours and waited until I got there despite it being much later than closing time. He also will text you if you prefer instead of calling as sometimes playing phone tag can be annoying and difficult but I was able to communicate via text message so we could be in communication about the car without having to interrupt work or play phone tag and delay the process of getting things fixed.

In addition, to his prices being completely fair - or even better than fair, but he took the time to explain each thing that was wrong so I understood, explained how long I had to get the things I didn't get fixed right away, and kept me abreast of all the things he was doing as he fixed them.

Alvins prices are very good and he makes sure that he does quality work. In my situation, I had just moved and taken my car to fix one thing at a certified dealer and they told me I had much more that needed to be done immediately. I had just moved and had a ton of other expenses and just didn't have the money to do it all. Alvin worked with me and was completely honest about all the work, and told me what had to be done right away, and what could wait to help me out. Most dealers would never tell you something could wait to be fixed.

Extremely honest mechanic that has gone above and beyond my expectations every visit. I don't live near this location and it is out of the way for me, however, I wouldn't trust my car to anyone else in SoCal. I moved here from the south and had a trusted mechanic and also had worked at a car dealership when younger so had mechanic friends that I trusted fully, so when I moved to Los Angeles I was really worried as I had taken my car to a few different BMW places including a certified dealer, and did not receive nearly the amazing service that Alvin provided me.

Alvin is the BEST BMW MASTER technician ever! He is very, very knowledge, trustworthy, and super friendly. I took my beloved 01 BMW 330ci in for repair, and drove out with a car that feels like it just came off the BMW assembly line from Germany. The car drives and handles like a dream. Alvin is the man! He is awesome! The shop is awesome! His staff is awesome! The price is awesome! Stop reading this review and go experience it yourself. I guarantee you will be super impressed like me.

I first spoke with Alvin on the telephone after calling numerous places I found online, and exhausting phone calls to Dealerships who quoted me unbelievably high rates for repairs I needed on my Mini's clutch. I called A's Garage, and spoke to Alvin. He simply alerted me to the possibilities my clutch might be facing and possible costs, options... He explained in advance what he would be looking for, and understood my interest and concern. He was able to check out my car, at a convenient time for me, and then make a decision for plan of action together. It was amazing to have someone to make a decision with! He ended up saving me more than Half the money I would have spent elsewhere. Months later, I suspected something was wrong with my engine, and was afraid to drive the vehicle, and was stuck far from his garage. He drove out to meet me and my car to take a look. He's a very helpful, and honest person, who understands his customers needs and predicaments. He will always find the problem, and have great suggestions. He always knows when something is priority to fix, and when something can last a while longer. I'm sticking to A's garage ! I've recommended A's garage to my coworker and he was equally thrilled when they serviced his used BMW.
