Beemer & Benz in Santa Ana replaced the lower control arm bushings and ball joints on the front end of my 1998 SL500 and so far I'm pleased with the quality of their work.

Nice to hear of an Indy that will let you use your own parts!
What did you have flushed? coolant, engine or trans oil???

Oh, of course a "brake flush"??? LOL
Somehow it just doesn't sound right.
Whatever happen to a "brake fluid renew" or "bleeding the brake fluid"?

Avoid the crook that runs auto craft in Irvine

He charged my father $10k in repairs and returned the car rife w problems due to faulty workmanship. You'd never guess from all the expensive machinery in his shop, but I'd only go there for very easy or basic repairs like shocks and oil changes. He should be kept away from things like engines and electronics as he is both incompetent and dishonest about his shop's abilities.
