This customer came to us asking about going all-out on his R32. We prepared a couple estimates, thinking this was just another guy with some pipe dreams. To our surprise, he had his car dropped off with a sizable deposit and we got to work. When the customer picked up his car and drove it all the way up the east coast to Massachusetts, so we had to be sure everything was perfect. He was thrilled, and the car is very fast, possibly the fastest we’ve built. He even sent us video of him doing donuts in the snow in early 2015.

    • Had several items that needed to be repaired on my Eurovan…

      …and am very glad I went to Apex Tuning. It was the second time I had work done by them and, from now on, I will always go back. They provided the repair estimate very quickly and it was evident they knew exactly what the problems were (without a lot of input from my end). [...]
