"Found 829 on Google. You can and should believe the 5 🌟 reviews. My X3 had fallen into a state of disrepair the dash was lit up like a holiday tree. Matt's meticulously worked on each issue shutting each light down. All the while he discussed cause effects and repair options with us. It's a few weeks now since the repairs, my car is running perfectly! The dash is dark less the Beemer orange glow. Honest, reliable, fairly priced mechanics are a rare find, Matt is a gem! Stop reading these reviews now and go see him... get your car fixed!"

 "Matt has been taking care of our cars for several years (long before he ventured out on his own with 829 Auto). We have always found him to be immensely knowledgeable, professional, and honest ( a trifecta difficult to find in the world of auto mechanics). Though we have many choices of where to take our cars to be serviced, we wouldn't think of going anywhere else! We cannot recommend him more highly, & wish we could give him a 10-star rating!"

"I went in for an APR tune and had a great experience. Matt is a very knowledgeable honest and kind guy. He knows what he’s talking about and will help you out whether it be for good pricing on parts or service or making sure your car gets what it needs to run good. I will definitely be back at 829 auto or in touch with Matt."

 "TOP NOTCH!!! I have been a repeat customer of 829 Auto for over a year and I strongly recommend you look no further than Matt's shop for a quality mechanic. Matt treats his customers like family, charges fair prices for honest work and answer any questions/concerns you may have. As a military customer, I especially appreciate Matt's attention to detail and care he takes in each vehicle he services. Choose Matt and 829 Auto, you will not be disappointed."

"... was looking for an Authorized APR Dealer...I came across Matts shop via APRs Authorized Dealer finder and boy am I glad I did! Matt and his crew were very professional, super friendly, honest, and informative. I really dug the mom pop shop vibe I got from the place. Matt made me feel welcomed the moment I arrived at his shop and constantly kept me in the know of things when him and his crew were working on my car. You most certainly can bet that I will be returning to this shop for future services! Thanks again Matt!"

"I took my Audi there for an APR tune and the owner Matt took care of it right away and I am very pleased with the results. He was very knowledgable and trustworthy. I would highly recommend him to anyone.  I will be back for my regular services to this place."

"I had my coilovers installed here.  Matt was professional, stuck to his quote, and made height adjustments to my suspension a week later at no extra charge.  Great local performance shop, highly recommended."
