Velocity Factor
This review has been more than two years in the making and is long overdue. I was first referred to Velocity Factor from a friend in 2010 when I moved to Boca Raton to attend graduate school at FAU. I had some unfortunate cosmetic damage to my front bumper, side skirts, and passenger side rear door. I love my car as I consider it an extension of myself, so I made sure my friend knew I would not let just any body shop or mechanic handle the vehicle. He assured me Felipe (owner) was the best in the business and need not worry. Sure enough, he was right. My first experience with Velocity Factor was beyond incredible. Being raised in West Virginia has jaded me in terms of exposure to genuine benevolence and true hospitality. Such qualities can be difficult to find in South Florida, but through detailed conversations with Felipe and the rest of the Velocity Factor staff I believed they truly cared about my car and wanted to restore it to the best of their ability. Perfection is the only word that can describe the appearance of my car after the work was complete. No bubbles in the paint, perfectly blended, all scratches completely removed and untraceable, and no glimpse “fish eyes” when looking at the long angles of the car. At this moment, I knew I had found my new car shop. Many oil changes and minor upgrades later, for both mine and my sister’s car, I was put in yet another unfortunate situation. I was run off the on-ramp to 95 by a drunk driver at a speed of 50mph. I was able to dodge all guard rails, but it resulted in my car smashing head on into a curb, blowing all the tires, destroying my wheels and wreaking havoc on my suspension. I had my car immediately towed to Velocity Factor and Felipe began doing what he does best. Through the entire process, I received updates about my car as well as full disclosure regarding which parts would be ordered and where the best deals could be found. Velocity Factor did an amazing job working hand in hand with State Farm Insurance to make sure my car would once again deserve the accolade of perfection. I chose to stick with the factory suspension parts, but upgraded my wheels, tires, and rotors. The car came out even better than when I first purchased it new from the dealership. It handled like a dream and I can never thank the Velocity Factor team enough for the complete rebuild of my suspension. To this day, I will always go to Felipe and his staff because I know my car is more than safe in their hands.Brandon Anderson2008 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X GSR2004 Mazda RX-8 Mazdaspeed (sister’s car)

I would have to say the best shop I have dealt with yet! They really know their stuff when it comes to racing, handling, performance, and they all have a good taste in what looks good either on the car or under the hood! They are very passionate about racing and it shows in their work! They are always finding the new awesome products to make more power and keep my car looking good! Couldn't ask for much more!I am currently deployed to Afghanistan and the whole crew continues to stay in touch and keep me updated on new parts. My family still deals with the shop and brings my car to the shop for continuous work and maintenance. They always get me good deals on products and always show real enthusiasm for working on cars. They always send me pictures of my car when they are working on it and always treated my parents with respect when ever they brought the car in for more work. They are like family to me as well. They always give their honest opinion and expert advise and that has yet to fail me. This is the second car they have worked on for me, and know who i will be going to for future cars. I can always call and just ask general questions about anything from parts, car events, tunes, they know it all!All my friends who i have referred there always had a good experience. They as well, always go back for more!Overall the shop is a friendly enviorment, good show/waiting room, great products, and a lot of knowledge behind those VFR uniforms they wear!All i can say is good job Velocity Factor and keep it up! You will be seeing me soon for a big build! You know I'm talking about!

This shop is courteous, helpful and efficient. I've used them several times for work on my BMW. I will continue to give them my business. They seem to know what they're doing and the work done is always a quality job.

Tips & Advices
Yes. New tires purchased online can often be priced lower than ones at a tire dealership. Buyers can often avoid state sales taxes and locate hard-to-find tire styles and sizes, but will still have to locate a local tire installer and pay sometimes high shipping costs.
The average cost of a set of new tires is $637, with a range of between $525-$725. In addition, installation includes mounting and balancing, alignment, and disposal of old tires.
The vehicle is raised and the old wheels are removed, then the old tires are removed from the wheels. The lug nuts, wheels, and valve stems are inspected and replaced as needed. The new tires are mounted and sealed, then inflated and balanced. The wheels are then replaced on the car. The average installation takes approximately 45 minutes.
Agencies such as the Tire Industry Association promotes tire safety through advocacy and education to the industry including: manufacture, sales, repair, service and recycling. Seek a full-service tire dealer who carries a wide variety of tire types and brands and asks about the type of driving you normally do.
  • Move your car to a safe location.
  • Turn on your car’s safety lights, apply the parking brakes and remove the hubcap if there is one.
  • Loosen the lug nuts with a lug wrench (but do not remove them), raise the vehicle with a jack and then fully remove the lugnuts.
  • Remove the flat tire and replace it with the spare tire.
  • Tighten the lug nuts by hand, lower the car and then tighten them fully with the lug wrench.
