  • I don’t know too much, if anything at all, about cars. Whenever I need routine matience I always get nervous about where I should take my car because I never know what actually needs to be done and what they may just be trying to sell me. With J, I knew that I could count on 100% honesty. He keeps it real and to the point. I needed my timing belt changed and J was the first person I thought of.  I called and brought my car in that afternoon. He had my car ready to go by 5pm the next day.  He went down the list of things he recommended which were already things I had been putting off.There was nothing crazy or out of the blue. Any questions I had were explained in detail. The price was great for the amount of work it took him to change the belt. If I ever need anything done, I know who to call.SS
  • I found Big Fish Motorsports from Facebook’s Socal BMW Page and I’m glad I did. After messaging back and forth with the owner J Farina at Big Fish Motorsports I decided to tow my car from the OC to their shop in San Diego. J took the time to try and diagnose what he could over messaging but ultimately it needed to be brought it for proper diagnosis.  Before taking it to BFM I took my BMW to four other big name shops in the OC and they couldn’t figure it out or give me the time or day to help me out. Now thanks to BFM my car is running strong once again and I would be happy to make the trip out there again for any future work.Marco V.
  • The guys at Big Fish Motorsports really care about cars, and they care about the people driving them — they want to help you understand exactly what’s going on with your vehicle so you are comfortable with the repair plan.  I had a bunch of issues with a 15-year-old Camry, and was unhappy with the exorbitant quotes from several other reportedly inexpensive shops around town.  J and Tim (the owners) walked me through each issue, recommended several do-it-yourself repairs (saved me money and gave me a great sense of accomplishment), and fixed the rest at their shop in a phased approach (I was on a budget and couldn’t do all the repairs at once).  We got the car running like new again and I was able to sell it at a great return on my repair cost investment.  Big Fish Motorsports earned a customer for life.  They also have a chips & salsa factory next door…trust me, folks, BFM is worth its weight in gold.Matt B
  • I highly recommend this shop for many reasons; Fast, great prices, trustworthy service, and downright awesome!Mr. Sam R.
  • Took my Acura rsx there for rear brake pads and rotors.  Super fast service!  I’ll return later to have the motor mounts done.Farrah B.
  • J is the most honest and skillful mechanic I know. He’s very good at assessing which repairs are needed and which can wait, which is helpful because I’m on a budget. He replaced both control arms (A-arms) and hammered out my fender when the one on the driver side had snapped on a bad pothole. He always answers all of my questions and will take a look at anything I’m worried about and explain how things work in a way I can really understand.Sami P.
