  • I dropped my car off overnight without an appointment. You were able to take care of me in the morning and had the repairs done when promised. Thank you for the prompt and courteous service!”

  • Really great service. Brought it in for an oil leak and tires. Brady did a great job talking me through what tires to get. When they found that the leak was caused by the oil filter they put in, they replaced it and topped off the oil under warranty. I don't know if the tires are better or they did a better job of balancing them, but the car now drives noticeably smoother. Honesty, helpful, friendly, and comparable in price to the discount tire places nearby.

  • After many years of searching, I feel I’ve finally found a trustworthy, reliable, reasonably priced mechanic. For my most recent repair, I got 3 quotes in all. B/A gave the best estimate & once the work was completed, my car runs as well as it did 10 yrs ago. I did the entire process w/o meeting any of the staff (online & phone).

    My car had been having issues for month and the place I had been taking it to had not been very helpful at all. I decide to look up a shop that deals with Minis and found BA, and I am very satisfied with their service. They indicated what the problem with my vehicle was, kept me updated, and everyone was very nice. I definitely will go here from now on.

    I spoke with British American Auto to get a price estimate to change my brake pads. They refused to tell me anything until I brought my vehicle in for a $60 brake inspection. I'm a mechanic and know what repairs my vehicle needs. Their refusal to get me a quote until I paid them seems like a shady tactic to get extra revenue. I will not be bringing my Mini here and will be steering everyone in my club away from this business.
