    Do you take your e90 to Vitek or do you have a older BMW you take to him?

    I have an older 2001 325ci I take there and I will also take the e90 when the warranty is done.

    I heard equal of bad things and good things from Sheni's... but really I just DIY in my garage since I have all the tools...

    When you want shit done right you gotta do it yourself. And it would be helpful if you or your buddy is a mechanic

    and I heard Sheni's rip people off... like over charge etc...

    Bumping this to mention how thoroughly impressed I am with Vitek. This guy is straight up honest. After needing a ton of front end work on our car (took it to him for control arms, bushings, CV boots, sway bar end links, and bearings) the starter died 2 weeks later. Obviously unrelated, but bad luck. He felt bad for us and quoted a ridiculously reasonable price to do the starter. It wasn't that far off of half of what Sheni quoted for a starter. Luckily I was able to get it myself, so I didn't have to take him up on it.

    Oh, and his part prices are really reasonable, and if you can get it cheaper online he has no problem with you doing so.

    I can't say enough about how good his shop has been to us.

    Has anyone been to Formula Auto Services to get work done on their Bimmers. I know the owner owns a few older BMWs and he has formal training in repairing BMW.

    I have an E34 that I have posted on Kijiji, today I received an email saying that I'm hurting the sale of my car because I mentioned that I had work done at Sheni's. According to this guy Sheni's has screwed him and several of his friends.

    Not sure what it was about and wanted to ask the guy if he could elaborate but his email is deactivated or probably sent from a fake email.

    I have been working on my e34 lately and haven't been to any shops, so I'm kinda out of loop any validity to this?

    I know there are a few shops like Astra and Formula, any feedback on these guys?


    Thanks.

    I will say a big +1 to Vitek. I had a MINI Cooper S before and wanted him to do something simple (serpentine belt) and i brought him the part and he quoted on labour and how long it will take.

    Took him faster than he thought so he actually charged me less. Was shocked. Great service and great shop.

    +1 for Vitek as well. He was awesome when I had my 3 series. They were very honest, did great work, had reasonable rates and were overall very nice and professional guys.

    Would absolutely recommend him.

    +1 for Vitek, just tought to get an appointment sometimes. Shows how good he is I guess.

    I'd also recommend Eric @ Zero Limit Auto. He opened up his own shop recently, smart honest guy
