    I used this app to find a BMW independent shop when I moved to Myrtle Beach. I am very glad I did. This is a top notch find. I am a little more at peace with my decision to move to the area knowing my car will be well maintained.

    I payed same price for parts with Ken as I did at the dealer 1 year later. exact same price for dealer parts as aftermarket parts from his shop. had to have my car fixed again for same problem 14 thousand miles later. checking receipt to see what the difference was between first repair and second I noticed that the dealer was really only a few dollars more, and their warranty is good at any dealer. I don't drive in only the Myrtle Beach area, so their warranty is only good when I am at home. I drive all over the southeast for work so off to the dealer I will go from now on.

    Jeff Monroe,

    We are a Bosch Certified repair shop. Bosch is the OEM manufacturer for the air flow sensor we put on your car. Therefore it was NOT aftermarket but OEM!!! Warrantied nation wide at any other Bosch shop. Even with the warranty being expired due to milage we may have been able to help had you come to us. As for the price that is only about a 1/2 hour job so there is not much room to save many dollars. The dealer charges $120.00 per hour and we charge only $85.00

    I love Ken Bakers!! for several years now I have taken my cars to Cal at Ken Bakers, and this week he cemented my business for good, I lost a belt and had to have my car towed for the first time, they sent a wrecker (driver was great) and got me back on the road same day, I was unhappy about my belt but upon discussion with Daryl, they had actually recommended I replace it last time I was in for an oil change. next time I will listen, but getting back on the road same day after everything I went through!! Cal will be working on my car from now on. Thank you and god bless you and your staff. Bob Johnson 2005 BMW 530i

    At John Henry,

    You are correct sir I do in fact sell quite a few higher mileage cars as cheap as possible. I also sell them as is. The buyer has every chance to inspect the car have a mechanic inspect and check the car out and decide if they want to purchase it or not. We also offer quite a few newer cars with lower mileage which all come with warranties. Rather than complaining because you purchased a higher mileage older car why not simply purchase a newer low mileage car so there would be nothing to complain about.

    Run, don't believe anything Cal Baker tells you !!! What ever you do don't buy any of their cars.......

    they have high mileage and lots of problems! You will need to bring back for them to charge you to fix!... In the last ten years, i purchased two cars from them w,nothing but issues.......Go check the cars they have on the car lot for sale ,you will see 2003/2004 models with price tags like $12 to $14000. on cars with 200,000 miles and w/problems they hide ,and you inherit them unknowingly.......... Good luck!

    I have had routine maintenance as well as a cooling system update done by Cal and Ken Bakers shop and the work was first class and less expensive than the local BMW dealer. They not only have many years experience but they also employ a BMW trained mechanic, with 16 years experience, that just moved here from Northern Virginia. They are great!
