  • " Oh man, I am not sure why I had never heard of this guy before, I just absolutely loved his work and his team.I know a lot about BMWs and just enjoyed it since he knew exactly what he is talking about. He has more than 30 yrs experience in bimmers and fixes your car way way faster than any other work place. Other workshops in Northshore quoted me 7 hours for a job which he did in 3 hours without replacing the spark plug to fix the brake !!! I will happily continue driving BMW as long as I know he is round somewhere. He checks on his team members constantly to make sure they are on the right track, unlike the last workshop worked on my car and installed bosh and plug covers wrong way. Oh by the way, the courtesy car is BMW too Awesoooooooooooooooome "

  • " Archibald & Shorters couldn’t fix my starting problem on my Volvo, but still charged me heaps. Wasted my money yet again with them! So if you own a Volvo, take it to these guys. Burger will fix it properly, and at a fair price, without charging you for replacement items that ‘might’ fix it. If I’d taken my car here in the first place, it would have saved me $2K. "

  • " I've just picked up my car & driven home!! Thank you so much – after a full service with you plus wheel alignment (which also included a valet). I have to say I feel like I’m driving a brand new car!! Amazing- thank you "
