I have been impressed by Mark Fernandez, owner of MINI Motoring Solutions, ever since I met him a year ago on a MINI cruise along Mulholland Drive for LXM So Cal. I could feel his passion for servicing and working on MINI's and that meant a lot to me. Over the course of the past year, I've been to his shop to have a few things done. He's always kind. He treats/handles your car like it's his own (i.e. closing the door with the door handle and not on the paint of the door). He explains things about the car and how certain things work. So that's the back-story, but this particular review I am giving today is specifically for his work installing my brakes recently. He let me watch as he installed my brakes, he explained about how the brake sensors work on MINI's, and he also handled my car with white glove service. I also like that he will chitchat with you and really make you feel comfortable as he's working on your MINI. My JCW is one of the first cars I've been passionate about in a long time and Mark understands this and didn't try to make me feel like I was a bother to him or anything. I had a lot of questions and he answered them all. I see his passion for MINI's and doing exemplary work and that makes me respect him a great deal. His prices for labor are reasonable as well as fair and he does an amazing job with everything! I would have no hesitations referring anyone I know to him, that's how much I trust him and his work. I have been far more impressed by his work than my local MINI dealership! There's not much he's unable to do when it comes to MINI's. He's even a retailer for Manic Tunes! I seriously wish I could give him more than five stars. He's a man of integrity. He's a hard-worker. He's meticulous in the work he does. He has a great range of knowledge of all things MINI. He's a really nice and fun guy! If you need any type of work done on your MINI, even just spark plug replacement, I would suggest you give MINI Motoring Solutions a try before any dealership or other mechanic shop. I truly stand by the work done there! I am a very meticulous and particular person when it comes to how I want my JCW serviced and how I want it returned to me, Mark has never failed with his quality assurance or his workmanship.
