Rob did the walnut blast on my e90.... I drove 80 miles to have him do the work.... I stepped out for a couple of hours while he did his thing. He took videos of the before and after areas.... Just an honest dude!! Thx Rob ��

Rob does it again! He installed 6 new injectors index 12 now the car idles like new, no misfires and the JB4 he installed punches like tyson in his youth. Can't wait to see him again for the pump flash!

I live near Santa Monica and its worth making the trip to see him. I had a mechanic nearby that supposedly changed my valve cover. When Rob did the injector install and pulled the plugs, he found oil in the spark plug wells and some weird sealant around the edges of the valve cover. Shady ass mechanics.

Rob is worth every effort and is the most honest mechanic you'll ever meet.

Thank you Rob!

Hey Rob,
i just bought my 2010 vert last week. I'm really looking for some direction with tune, maintenance, etc. I work in Santa Ana. Would it be possible to swing by and have you look at the car. I need a second opinion before i start Modding.

I have done quite a few N54 turbo swaps in the past - both stock/OEM as well as upgraded like the RBs/VTTs. With that said it isn't a service I offer to the general public due to the downtime and costs. Feel free to reach out to me directly if you want to discuss, I would be happy to answer any questions you have. Thanks!

Huge thanks to Rob! I took my car to him for ***, tcu flash, Bms backend flash and JB4 G5. Not only did Rob knock out the job in great time, he was also able to correct some questionable work from a performance shop that installed my chargepipe and fmic.

Rob took photos of their work and we could clearly see that things were not done correctly.

After installing everything the right way, Rob took the time to give me crash course on JB4 operating procedures. We did an extensive test drive, switching maps, discussing boost targets and he was kind enough to print out a cheat sheet for me.
Rob is the only way to go if you are looking for an honest guy with super fair prices!

Here are a few notes!
1) Rob does outstanding work!
2) Rob performs the work in very reasonable timeframe
3) Rob offers very reasonable rates for all of the work he performs
4) Rob follows up and has great customer service skills!

Here are the things that Rob did for me:

JB4 installation and tutorial

Rob, thanks again for all the work! I will definitely be back for additional work as it is needed!

I would 100% recommend Rob to anyone wanting/needing any work done on their BMW.

Been a while since Rob walnut blasted my car, but I wanted to let everyone know that he does excellent work and his prices are more than reasonable.

He was 100 percent transparent on the service he performed and even showed me before and after pictures/video to show me that he actually worked on my car.

Great guy who knows his stuff, hit em up!

Created an account just to share my thoughts about the wonderful work Rob does! He's a lifesaver! Brought the car in on a Sunday (Thanks again for being so flexible!) for Walnut Blasting and left with the best experience. Before and after was amazing, ports completely cleaned out and not just a blast job, Rob takes his time getting in there and make sure it's thoroughly cleaned out.

Rob's is a true professional, very detailed oriented and extremely knowledgeable. Car's running strong and pulls hard like it should again. If you're looking for a trustworthy, hard working professional, look no further. I'll definitely be hitting him up again for future work. Thanks for all your help Rob!

I'm just worried this post will cause a LOT of new business and then I won't have the "hookup" anymore--seriously.

A huge thanks to Rob for servicing my 135i today. Had the walnut shell blasting done and car runs like a champ. Rob also noticed that the two bottom bolts on the throttle body were gone and made sure I didn't drive away without them. I am assuming the dealership did a ****ty job of putting the car back together when the HPFP was replaced during the recall. All the boost is back and car is super strong.

So glad to have found a trustworthy person to service my car!

Shout out to Rob! He was able to fit me in on short notice for walnut shell blasting service, car is finally performing like it should! Also, he wrote down a few things I should keep an eye out and took pictures and videos as he went along with the service. Don't hesitate to bring your car to him!

Rob is the freaking man! Super knowledgeable and easy to talk to. I got a EWG JB4 + ********* dp installed and came out learning a lot about my car

I always try taking my car to someone who is actually going to show me what is being changed on my car. Not only are his prices great but his genuine interest in your satisfaction is unlike any other. Rob walked me through of what was being done to my car each step and was happy to answer my questions during and even before the install. I would not hesitate to take my car to him again, 5 stars all day.

Did the walnut blasting recently. Thanks Rob! He has the right equipment and technique to get it done right. His customer service equals his great work as he is passionate about our BMWs and our satisfaction. My E90's throttle response and power is back to where it was a couple of years ago. I didn't have what seemed to be a large amount of carbon at 59k miles compared to other pictures I've seen, but even so having that bit gone makes a big difference in the way it drives. Glad I came across this necessary maintenance, and glad I made the appt with Rob.

Had to post up about my experience with Rob, I'm blown away by his professionalism and knowledge of the n54/n55 platforms. He works quickly, communicates well, and delivers a ridiculous standard of customer service that has all but disappeared from this industry. Thanks Rob!

Have had the pleasure of taking my car to Rob for:

-JB4 G5 install
-Walnut Blast service
-Wheel spacer install
-CDV Delete
-Spark Plug replacement
-And misfire diag.

He will go above and beyond to make sure your satisfied and then some and is always willing to teach you along the way. I am confident my car is in the best hands possible.
