Kaiv is that dude. He just recently performed the swap on my newly acquired M3, and he is the only one you want throwing wrenches at these things for the swap. Thanks again Kevin!

7 years after I made my post in this sub asking about a place to get my valves adjusted

http://www.m3forum.net/m3forum/showthread.php?t=352554

I finally got a chance to have kaiv work on my car once again. This time around the SMG to 6 speed. Just like before I can't even begin to explain how great he was. He went above and beyond. We kept in contact along the whole process and he updated me with small and big things that came up and we decided to address/wait on them. Overall just a great experience.

He was there late night working on a car when I dropped it off and there on a weekend late when I picked it. He GENUINELY enjoys this stuff. Besides driving these things, I really don't think kaiv has anything else he lives for (joke joke), but seriously. He's passionate about this. It's nice to see him go from driving doorstop to doorstop to having his own shop. There's a reason he's constantly busy, and that reason is you won't find anyone else who matches his expertise. He's seen it all, so like I said in the other thread:

He's a great mechanic and great person in general. Save yourself some time and just PM the guy!

Thumbs up Re: SMG to manual swap (West) LA area?

Hands down Kevin P aka Kaiv!!! I transported my m3 from Berkeley in NorCal to him just because I wanted the job done right, and I knew that he was the man for that!! Kaiv does it all, and all for a very fair price too!! He can get it done extremely fast, but still with 110% quality. Can’t wait to be back down south so I can have him work on my car again! Hit him up cuz he’s very responsive and customer service oriented.

Enjoy your swap!! I know I do
