    I like the guys at VAC and they did good work on a one-off. They just didn't have the time or attention to work on my project over the longer term - probably a better fit for a different type of clientele.

    I've been a customer of VAC Motorsports since 2002 and couldn't be any happier. I got to know them well as I constantly visited their facility and I must say, they've quickly become family.

    They definitely have incredible knowledge and amazing skills. Due to me living 2.5 hours away I've had few well known shops work on my Drift car and the car was never right. Bolts left loose, parts installed backwards, wiring issues, careless, lies, scams & I can sit here and keep listing them but to get to the bottom of this I was NEVER satisfied!

    I finally decided to drive down to Philly PA and end the headaches & nightmares I was having.

    I Ripped everything out of the car and started my journey from scratch again.

    From VAC port and polish cylinder head to engine build to a sequential gear box to reinforcements to wiring to suspension to seat brackets to building a 210mm differential conversion to fuel system the car made GREAT power. They did a hell of an AMAZING job. They made sure the car was done right from headlights to tail-lights for the exception of the paint job lol that will get done next season.

    As I said before " I'm no longer buying the bread from the supermarket, I buy it straight from the bakery." Don't waste your $ and time letting YouTube mechanics, thieves, people without experience work on your car. Let the professionals handle it!

    If any one has an questions or suggestions feel free to contact me.

    VAC Motorsports has cared for my '89 E30 M3 and my '02 X5 4.6is. Their knowledge is second to none, they eat, breathe and sleep BMWs. Armand, Tony and staff are great people also. I have used their services for over 20 years. There were many times that I suggested modifications and services that in their opinion weren't necessary. Sure they could have done the service and taken my money but that is not the VAC way they truly understand BMWs and treat each vehicle with respect as if it were their very own. I highly recommend this shop for anyone who needs service on a street or track prepared vehicle or to those who want to modify their BMW to set it apart from all others on the road.

    Armand and his brother Tony have been building, fixing and racing BMWs for over 25 years and it shows in the way they talk. They are people of integrity and fair priced. They communicate what risks are involved and keep their word. They are capable of doing anything on a BMW. Go there with confidence!

    I took my 2008 335xi to VAC Motorsports in 2010 to install KW-V1 coilovers and to recommend and mount summer max performance tires on new light weight wheels. Their recommended Apex wheels are fantastic, then Dunlop Direzza tires are amazingly grippy (yet much noisier than the stock PS2 run flats), and the coilovers, which lowers the car, give the car nearly go-kart handling...overall this car handles 2X better than stock, thanks to VAC! Great customer service. The loaner E90 was a bit rough, however.

    VAC Motorsports is simply the best. Armond and crew treat you with respect, their knowledge is endless, their work outstanding. They take the time to explain everything and also their pricing very competitive. I would recommend them to anyone within the tri-state area.

    Wow, these guys are real BMW specialists, as soon as I walked in I could tell that they really loved these cars and were equipped to handle anything for a BMW. Their prices were at least 35% less than dealer quotes! Definitely recommend VAC Motorsports.
