Coast Motor Werk BMW & Mini Service & Repair Specialist
At first I was very wary about taking my 07 3 series to anywhere but the dealership, but Coast Motor Werk is seriously the only place I will take it. I know I can trust Brad and his team because they are truly knowledgeable about these cars and definitely don't charge for miscellaneous crap. They never do anything extra without consent and are very professional. I also really liked how clean the shop was. I knew they would be taking good care of my car and not damage it. They are very reliable and have been for others I know who have been going to CMW for any work on their bimmers. There's really negative to say. They are the best!

Evan and the rest of the staff is what makes this place great. They are friendly, efficient, and honest. I recommend them to all my friends and family in the Orange County area. I've had smog checks done here and my wife's car fixed and Evan always talks me through the problems and gives me a great price every time. Other mechanics I've been to try to get the most money out of me as possible, but not Evan. He's honest and hard working. I will continue to be a customer as long as he's there!

Wow, what an amazing mechanical experience. I was so lucky to work with FRANK who was not only considerate of my time but gave me options at an affordable price. If you are looking for an honest mechanic come see FRANK! Thanks for all your help with my car. I now have a new set of brakes, my car back on a same day drop off AND a place to safely take my car KNOWING the work is getting done. Honest, wonderful people here. Look no further!

Brad and his team do an amazing job every time! Coast Motor Werk has been great to me! They get the job done quickly, affordably, and perfectly every time. They care about the customer and about your car. I am usually pretty picky about my car but when I hand off my keys to Coast Motor Werk, I know my car is in very good hands. I recommend them to anyone who owns a BMW or MINI! Truly the best service and team I have ever met!

This place is the best and the person I attribute this to is Evan. He is the best mechanic, person, I have had the pleasure to work with as a customer. I have not done this before and Evan showed me everything I needed to know, gave me tips and the assurance I needed. I am a loyal and repeat customer. Evan is a gem of mechanic and great guy. Gem in Irvine!

Smog check was easy and convenient. Carlos was really nice even gave us a discount for waiting. But the wait wasn't even that long for a smog check. Took an hour but I came mid day and they were really nice.So convenient. Dropped off my car then took my son for lunch and came back it was some. Nice guys

Probably the kindest, cheapest smog check experience you're going to find around the Irvine/Tustin area. Evan was a knowledgeable and honest mechanic, and went the extra mile. A huge thank you to the guy at MK's Union 76, you're doing a great job! Will definitely come back for next smog check.

Best Smog Service I've ever encountered. I was greeted with smiles and very friendly crew. After a quick stop at the 99 Market I came back and the car was ready and waiting for me. The manager inside seemed genuinely grateful for my business. I was on my merry way in less than 15 minutes!

I took my car here for AC service. Inexpensive and finally have air! Evan was knowledgeable and honest. He's the kind of person if you met in a dark alleyway it would still feel safe. Will totally be back.

Tips & Advices
Among the common scams pulled are needless repairs, where a garage charges you for work that isn't necessary. Another popular one is attracting customers through a cheap oil change or tire pressure check. Then, when you your car is being repaired, they give you a long list of other corrections they'd like to make, therefore boosting the total cost of your bill. The best way to combat these types of problems is getting a written estimate before work is done so you can see how much repairs are expected to cost. If the final bill is higher than the estimate projected, ask to specifically see the work. Make sure information is put in writing as well. If a problem remains, you can have proof that work was not done to your satisfaction.
For winter driving, features such as the defroster, heater and exhaust system are paramount. Look in your owner's manual for specific directions on how features should be checked and repaired. Many newer cars have a cabin air filter that can be replaced when needed, allowing warm air to continue to flow in. Also, check tires before winter driving, as they need to be at the proper pressure to perform well on snow and ice.
In the spring and summer, you want to be sure your air conditioner and cooling systems work correctly. Given the high temperatures, overheating is a common problem. Look over the system by ensuring there is enough coolant available. If it needs to be refilled, it is best to open the hood and add more to the car before it gets too warm out. Also, clean out fan ducts and other ventilation sources necessary for summertime driving.
Some fixes to your car can be done without paying a specialist. Issues like replacing oil and air filters are relatively simple, with instructions provided in the owner's manual on how to make these changes. The same goes for replacing broken windshield wipers or burnt-out headlights. Such issues should be repaired quickly to guarantee safety, but don't require a visit to a garage.
Yes. Not every type of auto repair work needs to be done by a certified mechanic. You can fix some of a vehicle's issues just by paying attention to how the automobile is running and having a basic understanding of auto repair. Look over the ways weather may impact your car and what preventative measures you can take to avoid having to take it into the shop.
