  • I have been going to Mahida before he got the new shop on Western. He has been in the family for more than 10 years and all I can say is that he is the best when it comes to fixing cars. He knows what he is talking about and advises you in a professional manner on what to do and how to handle it. Plus the price is reasonable for the work that he does! I wouldn't recommend anyone else besides Mahida. Very professional and helpful. Tell him Kris sent you and he will take care of you.

  • I have been using Southbay Euro Car since I bought my latest 540i BMW in 2008 and moved to Hermsoa Beach. I performed broad research about the BMW service providers before choosing Southbay Euro Car.

    I am completely satisfied with the quality of work, timely repair, as well as cost. in fact, in all categories, Southbay Euro Car has exceeded my expectations. Dependable and reliable always come to mind in describing their work.

    Mahida, the owner, is a terrific person is honest and operates the business with integrity. I drive a long way past many other providers just because of him.

  • I like to thank Mahida for getting my BMW serviced today in such a short notice, I have been going to this auto shop for over 8 years, he was recommended by another shop for their expertise in German cars. They are very kind and honest and most of all you get your car fixed right the first time and prices are good too, and he takes his time to answer your questions and explain to you and that is something hard to find. I am very happy with them and will continue to recommend Southbay Euro Car to all my friends.

  • I've been bringing my BMW to Southbay Euro Car for three years now, and continue to give them my business after the move to their current location. Oil changes, brake pads/rotors, air conditioning, wheel alignment; all done in a professional manner and at a reasonable price. If you're tired of paying outrageous prices at the dealership for unsatisfactory results, just ask for Mahida and your car will be in capable hands!!

    The folks at SBay Euro are fantastic. It is not always that you meet an honest mechanic. I always feel like they are giving me the best advice. I routinely recommend South Bay Euro to all my female friends because I know that the owner and team will never take advantage of me. I trust them to always do a good job. If you drive in for an oil change then that is the service. Keep up the great work!

    I used this place about 7 months ago when my BMW needed new brake pads. They did a great job for reasonable price. I really appreciated the owner's straight forward approach, honestly and flexibility. Since I had such a great expreience, I decided I would return this past week because my check engine light was on. He ran the diagnostic for me and found out what the problem was, but he suggested I go to BMW instead because he did the research and found that the parts I needed replaced were still under warranty for my car. He could have easily charged me for diagnostics and repair, instead he told me to take my car back free of charge. I'll be sure to use him for other repairs that aren't covered by BMW in the future.

    The best Euro Car mechanic shop ever! I trust them with my BMW 100% and would never take my car anywhere else. Owner Mahida along with Monica offer amazing customer service, are very informative, and really friendly! The mechanics do a great job as well of diagnosing and fixing the problem correctly and efficiently the first time! Wouldn't recommend anyone else in the South Bay for your euro car or any car!! Thank you South Bay Euro Car. 10 stars!!

    The whole staff (Lydia, Munaj, Mahida) South Bay Euro Car have been wonderful as they’ve serviced my wife’s mini and my car as well. They are very responsive and explain exactly what they propose to do for our issues. They also give me options and honest up front pricing estimates. I know they are doing the right thing for my car at a reasonable cost.

    This is to let the world know that if you drive a BMW the place to take it is Southbay Euro Car in Torrance. I have been with Southbay Euro for at least ten years. The best mechanics in the world. They care about their customers and have decided to being the best. We are like family. I would not take my BMW to anyone else. I know that when they are finished with the work, I don’t have to check it, it’s done right the first time. First time quality. I am pleased to know the staff are very good people. Thank you Southbay.

    Competent, conscientious and cost-effective!

    These folks at Southbay Euro Car are incredible! I discovered this shop last year when I was looking for a set of tires - they also have a tire department. The staff is very knowledge and thoroughly honest - they don't try to "sell" you any parts or services that aren't actually needed. Because of this, they can save you substantial expense compared to having your car serviced at the dealer.

    I have been going to Southbay Euro Car for the past year and a half...the interesting thing is that I was referred to them by another great mechanic...however the repair was out of my original mechanics expertise. I have been extremely satisfied with the service. I always get an honest assessment from Mahida (owner) always addressing my best interest. The front staff is also very professional...If you have a BMW or Mercedes...I highly recommend you come here.

    I have never in my life have experienced the most greatest customer care like i did recently at South Bay Euro. Mahida was who i communicated with on a daily basis he was such a honest professional, i mean he answered every one of my questions and i was just extremely satisfied with his knowledge of my car and taking care of everything that needed to be attended to. I most definitely will recommend them to my friends and family and my car runs great. they diagnosed it was one of my cylinder heads and took care of my car every step of the way. Thanks guys at Southbay Euro.
