    Erkies at the office welcomed me with a wonderful smile and service. Obed is an excellent mechanic and I will continue to take my BMW and later my Hyundai there for complete maintenance. Forget dealers or anywhere else.

    Came to Imports Professional Auto about 8 months ago to have them look at an oil leak I had in my BMW. Obed told me exactly what I needed to get this fixed. The cost was fair and I knew he was knowledgeable based on the reviews I read. He showed me my from suspension was leaking hydraulic fluid. This needed to be replaced. Last week I finally came around to getting it fixed. I also took a stab at doing my own brakes with parts from on online auto parts retailer. It was all junk. I had him fix that was well. For the substantial amount of maintenance required I feel I received quality work and at a quality price!

    VERY impressed by Imports Professional Auto. What a great experience, from the moment you walk into the lobby, to picking up the car. The lobby was clean, comfortable, and cozy, a great first impression, nothing like the dingy shops I've been to in the past. Everyone was very professional, Obed explained everything in great detail. The pricing was very fair. Thank you Imports Professional Auto, so happy to have found a local BMW mechanic who I can trust.

    I found Imports Professional Auto about a year ago when I needed to have my BMW's battery replaced and registered, they gave me a fair price and did the job fast. A couple of weeks after I went back and had the mechanic take a look at a transmission leak that was there for a while, he diagnosed it as the sleeve where the wiring enters the transmission from the comp. I set up the appointment and he did the job in a day and saved me about $700 from what the dealer would have charged. This is the only shop I'll take my BMW to, knowing I can trust the work performed and customer service is great as well. I have to add, they are very respectful in the way they talk to you, that is hard to find at car repair shops today.

    Dpnt go here if you have your own parts or any idea what's wrong with your car. I did and I will never go back. I was patronized and they refused to work on my car. The cost to diagnose a problem on my transmission was DOUBLE what Aamco charge. The message I got was we don't want your business unless we can take advantage of you.

    I have been going to Imports Professional Auto for over a year and will never go anywhere else to get my BMW serviced. They are great, honest and reasonable cost. The dealership tried to rip me off several times, told me I had a oil gasket leak (not true), etc.

    Go here, it's worth the drive if you aren't close, Obie and his staff will take care of you.

    If you are looking for a BMW dealer alternative Imports Professional Auto is the place!

    I called dealers in Orlando and Ocala seeking information on maintenance intervals. One dealer never returned my call and the other said they would and never did. The people that have purchased these cars expect and deserve a certain level of customer service.

    When I called Obed ( Owner ) he spent thirty minutes on the phone with me answering questions!! Wow!! Dealers you have something to learn!!

    Obed scheduled my appointment and he had me in and out in less time than he had told me. He was willing and able to answer any questions I had. The staff are professional and accommodating and I would recommend them to anyone.

    I will never go to a dealer!!

    Thank you!

    Imports Professional Auto was recommended to me by several people. I was not disappointed at all. The shop is clean and the pricing for repairs are fair. I was a little nervous because you always here horror stories on how shops rip people off. If this shop continues to be a quality place, they will have a new customer as long as I live in the area. Thank you to Obed and guys at his shop.

    Obed and his staff at Imports Professional Auto are the best. They do great work for a great price. They are honest and take the time to explain things to you. They treat your car as if it was one of there own. I wouldn't take my BMW anywhere else.

    Obed and his crew at Imports Professional Auto are excellent! There are always nice, considerate, and courteous. They take the time to tell you what is wrong and what is truly needed! I have been going there for 3 years and I will never take my BMW anywhere else in Florida! I live in Orlando but Clermont is worth the trip anytime! 5 STARS!

    I was referred to Obed after picking up my 1994 LandCruiser. After a quick chat, I decided to leave my new (to me) truck in his hands.

    He took care of everything at a very reasonable price. In fact, I think sometimes I treat him worse than he treats me when I bring my truck back full of mud! (Sorry Obed!)

    Anyway, I now also trust him with my Infinity G35, and would take any other vehicle I owned to him as well. Honesty is hard to come by in this business... I'm happy to say it's still around.

    After buying my 2005 SLK 350 I went in search of a good, reasonably price repair shop. I found it. Obed is outstanding...honest, courteous, fast, fair and above all he does it right the first time. Never a problem or worry when I go to see Obed. I would recommend this shop to everyone with a European performance car.

    After being turned on to Obed's Imports Professional Auto Repair about 5 years ago I have been bringing my cars (Accord & Civic) for all services to be done. I have had several major warranty replacements done and I feel comfortable that all was completed with the knowledge and professionalism I expected. I would like to get many more years out of my vehicles and with Obed's help, I'm sure I will.

    I highly recommend Imports Professional Auto Repair

    I recently ran out of my bmw free maintenance on my 530i and had a software issue. I took it to a well known shop in the area explained my problem and got the deer in the headlights look, he referred me to obed, boy am I glad. He not only knew his stuff but he had all the diagnostic equip. for it and explained everything, nothing hidden very honest and trustworthy. And price, very reasonable. We are lucky in clermont area to have a shop like this, with experience to go with it.

    Obed was recommended to me by my Verizonwireless Sales Rep in Clermont. I decided to give him a try with my Lexus SC430. He did a wonderful job, was reasonably priced and was a pleasure to work with. We now take all three cars (the Lexus and two Tahoes) to him, and wouldn't consider using anyone else. You just walk away from his facility with a good feeling that someone truly did care about your vehicle and you.

    We just purchased our first Bimmer a 2004 330CI. I am an Engineer and have worked on cars most of my life. We brought the car in to have it inspected. I was aware there was an oil leak (common issue) and wanted someone BMW experianced to inspect the entire vehicle. We had several routine things serviced and was very happy with the owners knowledge and customer focus. I would recommend this shop to anyone in the Orlando area and beyond.

    We recently purchased a 2006 BMW X3 and wanted to find an HONEST, SINCERE, RELIABLE and TRUSTWORTHY shop to take it to - and we definitely found that with Obed and his family shop! Thank you for giving my car a post check up once over and making me feel like a valued customer! I am happy to have found these professionals!

    I took my 06 330i to imports to address an engine vibration issue. Obed quickly identified the issue, recommended the appropriate repairs and performed them quickly and at a very fair price. He walked me through the entire process. I explained to Obed that the car had recent work performed at Tuffy Auto in Clermont, which was a nightmare. Tuffy completely overcharged me for substandard and unnecessary services. Thank goodness there are profeesiona and honest mechanics like Obed. I have the utmost confidence in his ability and integrity.

    As for Tuffy Auto, I will never use them again and recommend that everyone avoid Tuffys at all costs.

    Once again he's the man!!! This guy is so awesome that I will build him a website for free. He fix my Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40 1979... he truly knows what he's doing... Also, he accepts 3rd party warrantees and he can recommend the best warrantees too.

    I'll be there the weekend after Txgiving to bring my 7 series for an oil change.

    was going to take a 318i to the dealership when I saw an ad inthe paper for this place. Took the car in and was immediately impressed with Obed. Found the problems and repaired. I was extremely pleased with the service and price.Obed is honest and caring and an expert mechanic. He calls when he says he will call and he goes over everything that he accomplished. You cant beat this kind of service. All staff were friendly. I am now a loyal customer and my little red 318i wont go to anyone else. Do yourself a favor and get your vehicle repaired here. Price and quality of service was excellent. Thanks Obed.

    I took my wife's 1998 BMW 528i to Import Professional when the left rear window gear broke. Even though I arrived at the shop just minutes before closing, Obed gave me a quick and accurate assessment of the problem and resolution as well as an estimate for repairs. Obed assured me that the part could be ordered, received and installed by close of business the next day. True to his promise the repair was completed as promised at the estimated cost. By the way, it is important to note that the same repair would have been at least half again more at the local BMW dealer as what I paid at Obed's shop. Additionally, he is a very pleasant, personable and professional businessman and mechanic. We will always bring our BMW to Obed for all future services.

    Took my car to another mechanic in the area and I was told I had a blown head gasket on my 2001 BMW 325i and I started to panic. I only had 72k miles! I am SO HAPPY I got a second opinion from Obed at Import Auto Professional. Had the car towed to them and a day later I had my car back running perfectly. He knew immediately it was the CVV and I had an upper radiator hose leak. He even went out of his way to fix a window creak issue with the window regulator. This guy is the best car mechanic in the area and has dealer quality service. Don't trust your BMW to anyone else!

    Honestly, this is the best place in Florida maybe the country to take you BMW or any car for that matter. I own a BMW 745Li and a CLS 500... the bimmer had a bad "altenator(water-cooled), Starter and battery.. he did it all for less than half of what BMW was charging.. and frankly he should charge more for the work he does... he's very honest and serious about his work..I really mean it. Just call around and get quotes and you'll see. I've been to every shop there is and Obed is the best mechanic period.

    Just make sure to call him before you take it anywhere... at least listen to what he will tell you... you will know he's "right".

    Here's my email if you don't believe this is a real customer:

    I am extremely luck to have found this place to work on my "toy" BMW Z3 which I often work on myself and am restoring as a classic. I don't trust the car to just anyone. This place really knows what they are doing. They are very computer savvy. They also work on Mercedes and other imports. Oby is a perfectionist when he works on cars.

    Imports Professional Auto Repair is the place to go if you’re looking for a great shop to repair your car. It’s impossible to find someone you can trust to be excellent in all areas. Obed, Owner and Mechanic Extraordinaire, provides service with a smile. I want my car repaired by a competent professional that knows what to do and how to do it. He calls to confirm issues so you understand what’s needed before he does it. He explains the problem and cost without hesitation. He has a great team including his dad (what an asset for passing time). His labor charges are by far more reasonable than others I’ve used. Obed keeps his phone by his side so when you call during business hours he always answers! Where can you find that? For your convenience his excellent shop is in a great location from any area of Central Florida. Worth the drive! My BMW 325CI, “Black Beauty” is thrilled she found such a caring place and so am I!

    I have taken my '02 330i here on a couple occasions now and have been nothing but very satisfied. The owner, Obed, is very friendly and knowledgable of BMWs and takes the time to explain what will be done in simple terms that even a caveman could understand. Unless something happens that is out of his control, the job gets done on time if not sooner and pricing is very fair as well. I highly recommend this shop to anyone in the area in need of quality work, great customer service and affordable pricing.
