An independently operated full-service maintenance oasis, Autobots Automotive Repairs is staffed by certified mechanics with the extensive know-how necessary to repair injured vehicles and perform basic upkeep and safety checks. Autobots alleviates common auto ailments ranging from engine repair to proper diagnosis of an ominously blinking "check engine" light. A thorough 26-point maintenance package leaves no nut or bolt uninvestigated, whisking customers' cars through a checkup of basic operations that includes replacement of engine oil and filter, a full brake-system inspection, and a vehicle road test that checks the car's ability to handle shock absorption and rumours generated by envious scooters.
Brian Jessel Autohaus is a local port of call for high-performance European vehicles. Its showroom stocks shiny, high-octane roadsters from BMW, Audi, and Mercedes-Benz. The team of certified and factory-trained technicians preps each vehicle for sale with an extensive 50-point safety inspection and can also supercharge vehicles for speed with KW suspension systems, Toyo tires, and Akrapovic exhaust units. To keep vehicles looking their best, the dealership’s auto spa pampers rides with heaps of hand wax, gentle chamois drying, detailing of doorjambs, and tar removal.
Stepping out on the showroom floor and being labelled as "used goods" can be the most frightening experience in a car's life. When local dealerships are prepping cars for their big day, they call on Dynamic Shine Ltd., whose technicians—many of whom have been with the company for more than a decade—have been preserving vehicles for more 25 years with a blend of detailing packages and protective services.
