I?ve lost three years of my life and thousands of dollars to Martin and his incompetent laborers (which rotate frequently.) If you want to read further enjoy the sad hilarity, but for the purpose of a review you can stop after the next sentence. 405 Auto, owned by Martin (was never informed of his last name) is the the worst choice in an auto shop that you will ever make. Don?t do it. Go ANYWHERE else. I dropped my 1992 325i convertible off at 405 Auto based on an idiot friend Tyler Locke's recommendation in August of 2009 with the mandate of restoring the car. In February of 2011, after having to rent cars for times that I had to drive (I live in LA) and driving Martins moms ?90?s Taurus wagon ?loaner? car I finally bought a new car. After driving Martin's moms loaner car long enough that I needed to think about getting it an oil change I knew that there was a problem. I finally said enough is enough and collected my car. It was three years later without transportation and 50% (maybe) of the work done. All of this after Martin guaranteed a mechanical restoration. I had to call often. Ridickhead (office manager) never once called me. I punched through their ridiculous British accent automated message system. No one at 405 Auto is even close to being from the UK. Mexico City is 5,500 miles, Eastern Europe is 6,000 miles. I wanted a car. Martin was sick alot. Unfortunately I paid cash up front for the repairs because Martin claimed that he and his business were hard up for cash. I choose to trust him and willingly paid him thousands of dollars up front. After finally taking my car, shopping around and then finding a new shop, I was told that the work done was of the caliber of a high school shop class. And it took three years. I lost. Learn from me. Go anywhere else.
