    While returning home, on a 5000 mile trip, I had several error messages and the check engine light appear on my 2013 BMW 750iX. The car was running great, but obviously the check engine light needed further investigation.

    We spent the night in Billings and I looked up several BMW capable repair facilities to check out in the morning. After reading a very positive review of European Performance, I selected them. I didn't call first, but just showed up there in the morning to see if they could squeeze me in. I was greeted by Quinn, a friendly and very knowledgeable technician. After describing my problems, Quinn advised he would check it out, but noted he was booked solid for the day. Not at all surprising as I saw that it was indeed a very busy place. He grabbed his equipment and quickly got to work. Long story short, he ran a diagnostic of the car, cleared the check engine light and determined there were no serious problems with the car and I could get it fixed when I got home.

    I was very impressed with European Performance and in particular, Quinn. He literally dropped everything to help get us back on the road, confident that the car was fine. And the icing on the cake was he didn't charge us anything for taking up 20 minutes of his already busy day. Thank you, Quinn and European Performance. You run a five star operation!

    On a long drive from Seattle to Miami, the last thing you want to deal with is power steering issues. Luckily, I was close enough to Billings that I could limp my 2004 325i in to have Quinn take a look.

    These guys are the real deal.

    Within minutes Quinn had diagnosed the issue with my Power Steering Pump And was able to find the pump in town at a great price.

    After replacing the pump, he gave the car a quick inspection - for free. I’m guessing that alone would’ve cost $100+ elsewhere.

    He then proceeded to give me some help with the aftermarket HID lights that had been having issues since Missoula. Then on top of that, he offered to replace the oil filter housing gasket (that I’ve had leaking for quite some time) at a fraction of the price that I’ve been quoted elsewhere. Thereafter, he proceeded to smoke my car to help me find the cause of a lean code (unfortunately to no avail).

    We then found that I had broken the Oil Dipstick off in the tube. After taking the tube off and diagnosing that the plastic components of the min/max levels on the dipstick had broken off, Quinn walked out to his e36 and offered to give me his dipstick.

    When it was all said and done, I didn’t want to leave.

    Having European Performance service my car was the best shop experience I’ve ever had.

    I cannot recommend European Performance enough!
