Charge $85/hr to check VANOS and timing. Said will need 9.6 hrs to do job. Dealer charges $100/hr (after discussing hourly rate) and needs less than 6 hrs to replace Vanos.
Said timing is off although replacing double VANOS does not disturb timing.....that's probably why dealership shop needs less time.
BMW PC diagnostic program did not notice timing problem, but a bad Vanos outlet selenoid and defect in Vanos unit. If a bad selenoid (electromechanical device) impairs Vanos (mechanical device moved by hydraulic-engine oil pressure) function, why not recommend a selenoid change instead of an $800 job? If every BMW mechanic knows that timing is not disturbed when sprocket mounting nuts aren't touched during DOUBLE Vanos replacement, Miami Auto Help must also be aware of this.

I have nothing but GREAT things to say about Ralph. He is a Mercedes Benz Master Tech,BMW Master Tech, Volvo Master Tech, Landrover Master Tech and an ASE Master Tech. Whenever I have taken my Porche and Mercedes Benz's to him he has been on the money whith the Diagnosis. I think that the person that has made a bad review on this or any other site about this Company or Ralph must be someone that has been put up to do this by a Competitor out to do harm. Yet Ralph does not seem to care or let it get to him as he is aware of both his ability and his honesty and so are all his many Customers. So if you want the Best and Most Honest Mechanic Shop in Miami. Call Ralph at Miami Auto Help Inc Do not forget to go on his Website and get his 10% off Coupon and bring it to him for you discount.

This is the place to bring your Mercedes! Ralph is a walking encyclopedia when it comes to cars. I saved about 30% from the usual dealer charges, I highly recommend it.

Rafael Villazon, the owner, is very knowledgeable. He takes the time to explain what needs to be done and tells you upfront what the cost of the repair is. No funny business here!!!
He has always been very honest with our whole family. Has repaired our Mercedes C230, our 2 Hondas, Explorer and Expedition. Has rebuilt 2 Honda transmissions, timing chains, put in new AC...which are big jobs. Very happy with the results!!!
If you want the repair done right the 1st time, take your car, any make and model to Mr. Villazon. You will be glad you did!! His prices, for the work done, are worth it! Just compare his to any of the dealer 'inflated' prices and you will see that his are better for ALL top quality work.

Pros: We Take ALL Our Cars To Him Since He Opened In 2004

Cons: If he is really busy ... turn around is a bit longer.

Caution, Before You Jump to any conclusions of droping off your vehicle to Mr. Rafael Villazon, please search for an alternate mechanic as this guy will tell you anything. He will also exaggerate a small problem to a bigger one. In essence to over charge you at the end. I was quoted $2500 for a job that cost less $300 somewhere else in Hollywood. My E320 is working perfectly and as brand new for a fraction of the price. Miami Auto Help, Inc is NOT RECOMMENDED!
