MY CAR ACTUALLY DRIVES BETTER NOW!

I'm a longtime owner of a mini cooper, and I used to get my car serviced with John at British Worx OC. Unfortunately John decided to retire earlier this year, but he was still kind enough to answer my call and refer me to this place.

I just had my car serviced with Christian today; he was friendly, accommodating and the pricing was reasonable. I daresay my car actually drives better now! Christian is very open about what service will be done on your car, and will call you to confirm prior to doing any work on the car. I will be going back for my future maintenance needs for sure.

COST OF PART AND LABOR WAS VERY REASONABLE

Brought in my Mercedes SLK320 that could not disengage from park. The culprit could have been a simple switch malfunction, sensor problem, a mechanical part failure or a computer error, so repair cost could be reasonable to outrageous, especially since it is a Mercedes. To my relief and verified by other Yelp reviews, Christian repaired the car within two hours after replacing a simple switch. The cost of part and labor was very reasonable. He properly diagnosed and repaired the car without padding the total repair cost.

CHRISTIAN IS AN HONEST AND COMPETENT MECHANIC

Yes, Christian is an honest and competent mechanic, So in reality, there are no other words which need to be read in a review section on Yelp.

However, if you want to read more... Working with Christian has been wonderful. My Porsche is almost 30 years old (1987 944) and he understands and shares my desire to fix the errors made by the previous owner, maintain the car in a near perfect condition, and improve things when necessary.

We identified the issues, established a priority for the fixes based on need and price, and are now working through the list.

SAVE YOURSELF TIME AND MONEY. TAKE YOUR CAR TO CHRISTIAN

I have been taking my mini cooper to Orange County Imports for about 2 years now. The service I have received from Christian has been outstanding. He is an honest and trust worthy mechanic, really. When I have issues with my car, I actually look forward to bringing my car to Christian. He's like my neighborhood, friendly and honest mechanic. His prices are fair. He is also a really cool guy. The waiting room and decor are really interesting. Save yourself time and money. Take your car to Christian at Orange County Imports.

GREAT SERVICE.

Great service. Had my check engine light come on right before a 9 hours drive. They figured out the issue and gave me their estimate to compare rates when I got back home.

THEY'VE NOW GOT A CUSTOMER FOR LIFE

Was referred to this shop through my warranty, and the reviews it had are completely accurate. Consummate professionals, very fast diagnosis and turnaround, concise and complete straight shooters. The owner Christian dealt with me and my warranty group personally and facilitated the entire exchange without me having to do a thing. The experience with these guys was so great that they've now got a customer for life. Hell, I'm hoping the car breaks down again before this warranty ends so I can bring it back! Highly recommended both here and to everyone I know.

Jared S., Oceanside, CA Via Yelp Testimonial

HE REPAIRED IT FOR HALF THE COST OF THE DEALER

Christian is great, took my BMW in because the check engine light was on for a stuck thermostat. He repaired it for half the cost of the dealer or other places I had give me quotes. He's got my business moving forward!

Dennis W., Lake Forest, CA Via Yelp Testimonial

A VERY FRIENDLY GUY AND IS EXTREMELY HONEST

I took my Nissan 350z to have the clutch and Flywheel replaced and I couldn't be happier! Christian is a very friendly guy and is extremely honest. His staff is also very friendly and are eager to help. Thank you Christian and staff!

Fabian Prado Via Google Review

I COULDN'T BE HAPPIER . . . WILL FOREVER BE A CUSTOMER HERE

This is the first place I've ever taken my car that I feel like the quotes are all fair and genuine. Christian does amazing quality work and has outstanding customer service! He will let you know exactly what's going on and when you should expect it done! I couldn't be happier with the way my car always runs afterwards. I've never had any issues and will forever be a customer here if my car needs anything. The shop is also very clean and nice! Highly recommend taking your car here for good care!

Allie Z., Irvine, CA Via Yelp Testimonial

Greg T., Aliso Viejo, CA Via Yelp Testimonial

LOVE THE ATTENTION TO DETAIL AND PERSONALIZED CUSTOMER SERVICE

Love the attention to detail and personalized customer service. Christian and his team go above and beyond. I trust them with my Porsche 911s and would recommend them to anyone with an import. Definitely 5-Stars.

John A. Matthews Via Google Review

THOROUGH, PROFESSIONAL, AND TAKES THE TIME TO GO OVER THINGS

I've been going to OC Imports for over 3 years now. Christian knows his European cars and is one of the sweetest guys in the car business. He is thorough, professional, and takes the time to go over things. He works with you to ensure you have a safe car and does not add on unnecessary work. He works on our mini, bmw, and volvo! Trust him completely with our cars:) You can tell he loves what he does. Thanks Christian!

Tokidoki F., Irvine, CA Via Yelp Testimonial

MY CAR HAS NEVER RUN SO GOOD, ITS LIKE A NEW CAR

My dad brought me to Christian, everyone else quoted me super high prices and was telling me it would take days to fix my car, Christian not only fixed my car in one day, he was way under budget and I was so appreciative of the repairs he completed, that I gave him the extra money as a bonus for being such a remarkable and swell guy. My car has never run so good, its like a new car since Christian changed and belts and did several very important replacements...he will never cheat you, he is the nicest man I ever met and he is kind and sweet...his girlfriend is very fortunate...

Amber Gray Via Google Review

EXTREMELY HELPFUL AND FRIENDLY AND EXPLAINED THE ENTIRE PROCESS

Came in here to get my Mercedes Benz E350 serviced for it's 25k maintenance check and I got a way better deal than the dealership and Christian was extremely helpful and friendly and explained the entire process. Will definitely be coming back.

Dee S., Aliso Viejo, CA Via Yelp Testimonial

HE IS THE BEST IN THE BIZ . . . SATISFACTION GUARANTEED

Found the man to fix it up right, and he is the best in the biz, the shop is always straight up, clean, honesty employee's, and the owner himself Christian, well very humble and honest (which is rare these days). Been with him since day one and wouldn't go where else. Satisfaction Guaranteed

Samona Chiles Via Google Review

GOING ABOVE AND BEYOND THE EXPECTED SERVICE

Christian is a very honest mechanic and has done two things that stood out to me as going above and beyond the expected service. I screwed up my wheel bearings trying to change my rear brakes pads and called Christian. He met me at his shop on a Sunday (when he was closed) and did an emergency repair.

The second thing he did for me was replace my brake pad sensor for free that inadvertently got sheared off while driving. I was blown away by this, and would recommend his company to friends and family.

Chris T., Mission Viejo, CA Via Yelp Testimonial

ALWAYS DOES A GREAT JOB AT A GREAT PRICE

Christian has worked on my BMW 545i a few times and always does a great job at a great price. He is very authentic and you can trust him to always do the right thing. He specializes in BMWs as well and wouldn't take my car to anyone else

Erik Schweiss Via Google Review

I WILL DEFINITELY GO BACK AGAIN

I am so glad I find an awesome auto shop that specializes in German cars! I just had my Mercedes service over there and Christian was efficient and in the nicest manner! I will definitely go back again for many more service!! Thank you!

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND HIM & OC IMPORTS FOR CAR SERVICE & REPAIR

Christian is Friendly and Great Mechanic who goes over & above what needs to be done to your vehicle at a Fair Price! I highly recommend him & OC Imports for car service & repair.

Aja M., Aliso Viejo, CA Via Yelp Testimonial

HE IS VERY PROFESSIONAL, DETAILED AND MOST OF ALL HONEST.

The very best mechanic in Orange County! I have always taken my MBZ to Laguna Niguel MBZ. Until two years ago I was lucky enough to find Christian, owner of Orange County Imports. I have never felt so confident! He is very professional, detailed and most of all honest. His repair and service fees are more than fair. Thank you Christian!

CHARGED ME FAR LESS THAN QUOTES I HAD RECEIVED FROM OTHER SHOPS

I brought my 1999 Carrera for service at OCI, The owner Christian was very professional and detailed in explaining to me exactly what repairs were needed and charged me far less than quotes I had received from other shops. He also made a few minor adjustments for free that other shops were going to charge me for. I will continue to bring my Porsche here for any future repairs and service.

Paul Hurley Via OC European Testimonial

THIS IS AN A+++ COMPANY TO DEAL WITH

My Mercedes ML350 petered out in Newport Beach and Christian and his company OC Imports saved me! This guy is thoughtful, thorough and a true pleasure to work with. He did a complicated service for a fair price which was about 3 times lower than the Mercedes dealer in Laguna Niguel. I recommend this business and it's owner in the highest possible regard. This is an A+++ company to deal with.

Russell S., Rancho Santa Fe, CA Via Yelp Testimonial

BEST MECHANIC I HAVE DEALT WITH IN MANY YEARS.

Fair, competent and very customer oriented. Provides real alternatives if there are any. Best mechanic I have dealt with in many years.

Mammoth Skier Via OC European Review on Cartalk

VERY PROFESSIONAL AND PERSONABLE.

Hi everyone! I am Renee's husband Gary. We're the couple that brought in the VW Manx replica you see in the add. We were very frustrated with this newly restored veh. due to numerous electrical problems until we came in contact with Christian Niagara at O.C.Imports. He did a great job fixing the car and even came over to my home to rescue us. That kind of service is unheard of today. Christian is very professional and personable. Trust me, you wont be dissappointed.

Renee Koch Via Google Review

Excellent service! I always take my Bmw 750li here for service, it's always done right and on time. They even provide you with a loaner free of charge. Great price and exceptional service!

Aure B., San Diego, CA Via Yelp Testimonial

EXCELLENT SERVICE WITH REASONABLE RATES

Finally I've found a mechanic I can trust. Christian provided excellent service with reasonable rates. I'm not taking my car anywhere else. I have an older BMW and he was able to locate the replacement parts I needed when I was not able to do so myself and rebuild where necessary. He is clearly knowledgable on European cars. He is also easy and pleasant to work with. Would highly recommend.

Lea C., Orange, CA Via Yelp Testimonial

VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE AND EXPERIENCED

Christian is the best out there! He is very knowledgeable and experienced. He is fair and honest about his rates and he provides high quality work. I will definitely be coming back when I need any car services.

HE SAVED ME A LOT OF MONEY AND HEADACHE

I had a PPI done on a 911 I was considering purchasing. Sebastian, the owner, performed a thorough inspection on the car for about a hour and provided me a detailed report on all potential problems in writing. Based on his evaluation I chose not to buy the car because there was a concern with the transmission readings that I would never known about from a test drive. I believe he saved me a lot of money and headache. Thanks
