  • The guys at Mike Johns imports are a real pleasure to work with and very helpful to fix my car issues. I’m very pleased with their work on my 2009 Mini Cooper. Big shout out to Paul and Sam.

    Our BMW X1 is running at its best since we have been having Mike Johns crew perform the Maintenace it needs. They stay within the quotes given for all their service. Paul and Jake have always been friendly and up front about any issues they find in their vehicle inspection. We had the Transmission fluid / Differential / transfer fluid / Spark plugs / Coolant serviced. Like I stated before, it is running like new,

    I called atleast 10 different BMW shops to ask them a question about a wheel fitment problem that was throwing a bunch of codes on my 2011 528i, every other shop wanted to charge me atleast $200 just to look at it. Paul one of the techs fixed it right over the phone. I'm so amazed how honest and good they are I have an appointment tomorrow 2 1/2hrs 1 way to have them inspect my car, it's sad to say it's Hard to find an honest shop, especially a BMW shop. But liok no further, even if there not in your area, make the drive, i didnt mind because its a BMW im driving

    I drive a diesel VW. I love my little car but I have had trouble finding a mechanic to work on it. I came to Mike John's by referral. From the first phone call the customer service was above and beyond. Every step and check was discussed with me prior to moving forward. There was even a courtesy check the day after having my car back. I would absolutely recommend.

    Honest place with expert mechanics in all things BMW, and I would know! (They do other imports too)They’ve been quite kind to me, super patient and helpful. Great reputation and very professional. Highly recommend.

    I have taken both of my 7 series here and the customer service alone is unmatched, their work is even better. They personally text you after a service to make sure the vehicle is going good. I have not found this kind of care anywhere else, I'd recommend anyone with a BMW to go here for service.

    I had a coolant leak issue, the great folks at Mike Johns Imports, analyzed, diagnosed and fixed the issues (water pump, fan clutch, top and lower radiator hoses, were replaced, new coolant and replaced a much worn out main drive belt), they were amazing on how professional they were, how fair-priced they were and how expedient they were.

    I truly, recommend Mike Johns Imports for all your BMW service needs, they are extremely honest, extremely knowledgeable and treat Customers in a appreciative, respectful manner. Thank you MJI for the WOW experience you gave us!

    Found Mike Johns Imports on bimmershops.com. Just really glad I found you guys because I was about to sell my e38 740iL for anything I could get out of it . Now I think I'll keep it forever. They did a fantastic job and I'm very happy even though the shop was about an hour and a half drive from where I live. When it comes time to replace my timing chain and service the tranny I am definitely going to return. Thank you so much!

    I got a great recommendation from a friend to go see Mike Johns Imports in Jeffersonville. Mike Johns in a BMW GURU. He fixed 2 or 3 of my issues on the spot! Within minutes, i was completely blown away at his humbleness and lack of greed. There aren't many business owners like him left in America.

    Mike Johns Imports is hands down the best service in Louisville and Indiana for BMW. He has as many in stock parts as the dealership and all the specialized equipment needed. And as far as losing his top techs that's a joke. Those techs merely followed Mike's lead he makes the shop. Another shop has been trying to trash his name since they left but they will never be Mike Johns. He has plenty of good techs there now and they are going strong. I know of people who actually drive from Ohio and Indianapolis and beyond to get their service done with Mike. And all the other BMW shops in town have to use him in some form in their day to days. I own a shop of my own and I strive to be like MIke.

    Mike Johns Imports is the best--never go anywhere else. I buy and service my cars strictly through them--There is nothing more valuable than experience, honesty and a lack of greed. Mike appreciates and understands these cars the way some people love fine wine. Larry is top-notch and everyone there is responsive and responsible.
