    In mid September, I drove my 2005 BMW 530i to Eurofed's Old Pineville Rd location in Charlotte for an oil change. I also asked that they look into a transmission fault error code that happens occasionally upon fast acceleration. My car was driving fine when I drove it to their shop. After a couple of days had passed, they called me back with a laundry list of issues they claimed to have found:

    1) Hood struts needed replacing

    2) Replace rear brake pads and rotors

    3) Remove and replace air cleaner element and cabin air filter

    4) Remove and replace spark plugs and crankcase pressure regulating valve

    5) Remove and replace engine oil filter housing and replace coolant

    6) Reprogram vehicle

    7) Remove and replace thermal oil level sensor

    8) Perform transmission service

    9) 4 Wheel alignment

    The grand total for these supposed issues was $5,390.71. I told them I would just come and pick up my car. After I paid for the oil change I got in my car to leave and was shocked to find that the engine was missing badly and the check engine light was on. The engine was running like an out of balance washing machine. I went back in to complain that my car was not operating like this when I brought it in. They told me "well, it's an older car and things like this happen." Basically they were saying that it was a coincidence and kept saying they wanted to "educate" me, which was infuriating. On the printout of their quote, they falsely claimed that the check engine light was on when I brought it in. It was not. They would take absolutely no responsibility for what happened to my vehicle. I had to call a tow truck to get my car out of there.

    I subsequently took my car to an honest mechanic to whom I provided a printout of the work Eurofed claimed needed to be done. The only problems he confirmed was that the hood struts needed replacing, and the car was misfiring because two of the coils were not fully plugged in. He even said the spark plugs looked brand new, as if they had been replaced last week. Bizarre and a bit of a mystery, because they had not been replaced recently, to my knowledge. He also commented that the rear brakes looked great and had 75% of life left in them. The new mechanic (who I will bring all of my vehicles to from now on), said that he drove my car for 81 miles and could find NONE of the problems they had listed. In all, it only cost me $276 to get the struts replaced and get my car back in smooth running order.

    Something happened with those ignition coils. In short, I wouldn't trust these guys with your bicycle. Please do your research and save yourself the money and frustration of dealing with these characters.

    Gary, Russell and Dewayne,

    I want to express my sincere appreciation to MBV European for the excellent repair work performed by you and your staff on my 2008 BMW 750i. The service that MBV provided was an efficient, pleasant experience from the first phone call. Your shop handled the entire repair with absolute professionalism. Your patience in dealing with the Warranty Company is to be commended and your ongoing communication was refreshing, I felt fully informed all the way through completion. You have earned a loyal customer and a reliable source of referrals. I commend you and your techs on providing tremendous service and exceptional attention to detail at reasonable prices.

    Thanks for the A+++ service. I will take every opportunity to recommend your shop at every chance I get.

    Thanks

    With my 2003 530i broken down and undriveable, I was limited on towing coverage. My regular BMW technician is in Wilmington, NC which was too far, so I searched the web for a closer BMW tech shop and found MBV European in Charlotte, NC. I scoured the website and the reviews so I thought I would try them out. It so happened that the guys' name who answered the phone was the same as mine! An omen? Maybe. I was impressed with their professionalism and courteousness, not to mention how well my 530i runs now. It needed a new battery and alternator, which after installation has much more power and is stronger at the green light! Thanks MBV for a great job!

    At last I found experienced BMW technicians in Charlotte at MBV European. Having an older BMW 635 all the other independents seem to have a bunch of 20 year old kids working on cars no wonder they couldn't fix my car. No substitute for experience, they have been in business longer than most of the techs that have tried to fix my car.

    If you own a Bimmer, you need to use MBV European in Charlotte. While passing thru Charlotte on a trip I had a major problem on my car. They got me back on the road in a few hours and at a reasonable price. They even had a driver take me and my wife to a restaurant for lunch and picked us up after.

    This could have gone very badly as you can imagine, but these guys are great. Wish I had them in my home town. Thanks MBV.

    They could have taken me for a lot of money. I went to MBV European with an estimate from the local dealer (lets call them Hendrick). I was prepared to spend the money and just wanted a second opinion,

    they took the time to explain and show me on my car what was needed and what was overselling by the dealer. Spent only half of the dealers estimate.

    I dropped my vehicle off at 7:30 a.m. as requested, then didn't get to it until after lunch, so I was starting to get anxious to know if my vehicle was going to be ready the same day as I was told. He later called me after correctly diagnosing the problem and told me the part was on back order for 2 days and he would have it repaired my closing time the same day that the part arrived. In the mean time, after losing faith in the local dealer (Hendrick) and being raped by the pricing of the local dealer, I have the upmost faith in them. They ended up completing all three things I wanted done to fit the figure that I had in mind that was fair without me even having to discuss it with them. I contacted Russell and I am thrilled that I can finally trust someone to be fair in the automotive industry without looking after the all mighty American dollar. Thanks again MBV European!

    2004- 745IL. 76,000 miles. I had a problem with my 745i smoking excessively at idle, I had taken it to the local dealer 3 times for this problem at each visit it cost me several hundred dollars and they could not resolve the problem. After the check engine light came on i called them only to be told the best thing I could do was to replace the motor for $18,000.00 or trade it in. I called MBV for a second opinion and was told they had seen this before. I took it in for them to have a look and they had it fixed in about an hour for $145.00. A faulty pcv vent valve had to be replaced. I wish i had gone to them first. I will never be going back to the dealer. They just wanted to sell me a new car or spend a lot of money for an engine that i did not need.

    Had a problem with my 2002 BMW X5 smoking out the exhaust. The Hendrick local dealer gave me an estimate for repair of $3000. I called MBV European and they gave me an estimate of about $800.00, but said to be accurate they would need to look at the vehicle. I took it in the next day and the actual repair was $475. They could have taken me for the $800 and i was ready to pay that. Not too many in the business that are that honest. They have my business from now on and I will refer all my friends with BMWs.

    Found MBV European in the yellow pages in Charlotte. Found them to be very sharp and on top of their game, they saved me a bundle over the local dealers estimate. I have referred a lot of my friends to them.
