I called these guys up and they came by the same day to replace my brakes. I waited too long to get them changed and it was getting to the point where it had to be changed but I couldn't wait so it was super sweet they came out right away. The price was fair and the mechanic super friendly. Highly recommended!
Got Omar out to replace the brakes on my BMW M3. The dealership quoted me over $2500 and I got it done for half that with instaMek. Plus the service was super easy to use and it's been 6 months no problem so it's great.
