A year ago I moved to Simi Valley from the San Fernando Valley. I had a great independent BMW shop I used, but I thought I could find another great shop in my new neighborhood. I took the recommendation a person who owns BMWs and has lived in the area for a long time. I tried the shop, but I had to make too many return visits to resolve issues with newly installed parts, and some other issues I didn't like. Next, I tried a nearby BMW dealership. I was also greatly disappointed. So far, it was two strikes and I was thinking of just returning to my old independent shop in spite of the drive.
Before giving up, I decided to talk with some other BMW owners in Simi, stopping to talk with them on the street or in parking lots. I received three recommendations for Chris Sniady at CS Motorwerks, in Westlake Village. I did some internet research and liked what I saw, and decided to give Chris a try.
Best decision I have made since moving to Simi. Chris is knowledgeable, friendly, and his prices are reasonable. He has worked on my car several times now, including an oil change, installing new motor mounts and new shock absorbers, plus helping me working out some issues with my headlights.
If you are looking for a place where you can trust the person to care for your investment, look no further and go see Chris at CS Motorwerks.
