Claudio is Italian-Argentenian (origininally from Buenos Aires); I used to be partial to Italians and Italian Americans--now I've broadened my horizons. He and his employee, Nestor (also from Argentina) do "vintage racing"--currently a 2,002 BMW. In addition to being an honest and good mechanic who clearly loves his work, Claudio also likes cats. I discovered that only because my Beamer and my Abbysinian both needed extensive (a/k/a "costly") work at the same time. I was stressed to the max at the thought of losing my cat and Claudio was extremely empathtic. I discovered that he and his wife have several cats that are dear to them. On other visits, we even shared cat pictures. I have a theory that any man who loves cats is, indeed, rare. Since good mechanics are, too, I'm compelled to share. Oh dear! Since the majority of luxury car owners are probably male, hope I haven't ruined Claudio's chances of doing business w potential clients by exposing his "soft side"! Don't forget he's a "macho" racer, too! Best of all, he's an honest, competent and helpful mechanic. (Helpful handling warranty claims.)

I always have two or three quotes done to keep him honest (though it seems a watse of my time now), and he has always been the lowest on price and often shown that other recomendations were incorrect. So insteed of trial and error fixing at my expense, he was able to keep my now 24 year old porsche running as my primary transporter to hell, otherwise known as work. Thanks Cladio...I think.
