Dan is definitely the man when it comes to communication and level of detail for the work involved. I contacted him in early November for a valve adjustment and coil/plu replacement for a hesitation that i was having in the car after having it sit for a long time. Dan was very informative about what might needed to be done along with the scope, cost and time it would take to do everything. We scheduled a time towards the end of the month and he took care of everything and I mean everything. He asked me to take the car to him to which i told him i was not really comfortable driving it due to the hesitation and he said no problem he would come to me and bring everything with him to do the work. He ordered everything that was needed and he even showed up before I got there. He immediately got to work on the valve adjustment, Inspection II, and brake bleed for my brembos. He kept me informed throughout the process about what was being done as well as keeping detailed records of all the valve adjustments. After a very long day 8:30-6:30! He even took the time to run a diagnostic for me to make sure all the codes were cleared and everything was addressed. I drove the car home that night and it was smooth as silk. I cannot recommend Dan enough and I really wish everyone that worked on cars was as honest, detailed and professional as he was! 5 stars and i will be going back to him again for sure!

When I lived in LA, Kevin (Kaiv) was my go-to M guy. He's a real asset to the SoCal community.
Since I moved to SF, I have been going to Ray (Playskool1), who is equally awesome.
But then the time came for a valve adjustment, which requires the car to be cold. My condo garage does not allow such work to be done there, so my car needed to be dropped off somewhere the night before and I had to coordinate a ride home and back the next morning. With Dan so close to me, I gave him a try. We just finished the work (valve adjustment, vanos overhaul, etc.) and all I can say is your car is in great hands with Dan. He was communicative, fairly priced, thorough, fun to wrench with (or watch), and knew what he was doing. This forum/club is a special place to have so many great options for work like this.

I can't say enough good things about Dan. After receiving a ridiculous quote on a valve adjustment from a shop, I reached out to get his help. Really responsive, helped coordinate getting to/from his house, and actually uncovered extra issues for the car that the indy bmw mechanics missed. On top of that helped me figure out some DIY short-term fixes while I got things in order. Really reasonable prices especially in light of going above and beyond.

You can tell that Dan is a real enthusiast and knows these cars extremely well. I will be bugging him and going back for whatever work he will take on in the future. Thanks again Dan, you the man!

Went to Dan today for a corner balance. He does great and fast work. Best of all, he explained everything thoroughly and clearly as well as answering all general questions I had about the car and tracking. 10/10 would recommend!

Went back to Dan today for the vanos. I had previously opened up the vanos and attempted the job but hadn't totally timed the exhaust cam to where it should be. We found this out when I was over for the corner balance a couple weeks ago. Dan pulled everything, cleaned it with his amazing attention to detail, installed the oil pump disc, and wrapped everything up in record time. 10/10 would recommend, ill be back for headers soon hopefully!

No one works on my car except for me because no individual or any shop can meet my standards on how work should be done on my prized m3. With that being said, when it came time to do my rod bearings, I happily handed the keys over to Dan. I know he is as meiticulous as I am and that's saying a lot. He completed the job in 1 day and everything was exactly the way it should be. If your in the Bay Area and need work done on your car look no further. Unlike even the nicest shops I have came across, Dan actually torques every single bolt to spec. Even bolts that don't matter such as sway bar end link bolts, he makes sure they are to spec. Dan takes his time to make sure everything is absolutely perfect before it leaves his garage. Not only is Dan a great technician I'm fortunate to be able to call him a good friend as well. If I need any major work done in the future you already know who will be the one taking care of it.
