Richard has been called the "soup nazi" of auto mechanics but once you get to know him he is definately a kind, introspective, intelligent man who loves his work. When it comes to German cars and vans...the man is a Wizard. If he was to go out of business...I'd sell my German cars.

Several years ago, after the local BMW dealer told me I needed nearly $2000 in repairs, I decided to get a second opinion from Richard. He told me that nothing needed to be done to my car. Interestingly, I went back to that dealer a year later for another "free checkup" and they told me that I needed "only" a couple of hundred dollars worth of work. Clearly, the car had healed itself during the year.

I had a '78, fuel injected VW with a drivability problem. First, brought it to another VW specialist. He charged a few hundred dollars and did not resolve the problem. I then took it to Johnathan at Broad Street Auto. Johnathan found a small leak in the rubber intake tube and replaced it for a total cost of $80. It ran perfectly from then on. These are "Good People".
