Larry, the owner/operator, is a true Renaissance man-you are more likely to be greeted in the shop by the tunes of Miles Davis, The Grateful Dead, Dylan, or a Mozart piano concerto rather than, say, the greatest hits of Alan Jackson, which can be pretty typical mechanic listening fare. (Though, I am sure, in honor of Tom and Ray, there is a healthy dose of Bluegrass, with specific references to Earl Scruggs and Tony Rice.) The bookshelf has BMW repair manuals, books on Zen, Sports Illustrated and Playboy. What else could a BMW owner want? Larry is just as likely to ask your opinion about the coming Vernal Equinox as he is wondering if you ride the clutch. Time spend with Larry is time well spent.

I was in the market to buy a private party 3 series BMW, and Larry took about 20 minutes on the phone with me in order to explain his shop, his qualifications, his capabilities. I had the vehicle that I was interested in inspected at Larry's, and the price that he quoted was honored. He found a leak and brought it to the attention of the seller and myself. He also helped with obtaining local BMW shop repair estimates so that I could use this information towards negotiating a lower purchase price. I went through with the purchase and intend to use Larry's for my repair work.
