Phenomenal! Malek has replaced the engine in my 2009 M3 in April of 2017. I took it down there from the Bay Area on a trailer and I continue to make the drive out to him for maintenance/upgrades.

MRF is California's true leader for M3 rod bearing service with over 270 cars completed successfully. Recently he installed Bilstein Clubsports, BBS E88, and a bunch of new suspension components on the car. I consider MRF my family. The only place I trust with my cars, hands down. Thank you! Malek@MRF

Oh man that's hilarious. I was inquiring about your exact car before i went to Florida to buy mine. I was dead set on Space Grey, slicktop with red interior and DCT, so i know it's a rare spec and your location matched.

You put it on hold about 20 minutes before i called them back after confirming financing and intended to put it on hold also. Called them everyday for the 72 hours you had it on hold and you picked it up on the final day. Lol.

Wow! That's crazy how you noticed the car. Sorry about that btw I didn't even know someone else was interested, my friend works there so that's how I found the car. Looks like you got yourself an e90 too! Looks amazing. (Still in shock how we meet on here lol!)

yikes I have an 09 and hoping I can get to Wednesday for my new BE bearing appt... currently at 99K miles and this is terrifying me driving 3 hours this weekend for a wedding.

Curious, did you have to buy a brand new engine or did you use a salvage engine?
