Default re: Select Auto Garage - Sunil Shanbhag (Dadar, Mumbai)

Folks, am contemplating picking up a pre-owned Beemer and wanted to know if there are any Specialists for Beemer who I can take the car to rather than going to ASC.

My previous trysts with Select Auto Garage have been futile hence looking for alternate solutions.

I too am searching for a FNG specialist for my BMW. Will ping if I come across someone trustworthy. Let me know if you find any.

Thanks

I was too searching for a FNG and came across 4 Seasons Automobile. I think they do service high end cars specially. I hope this may help you.

It might help others if you can post some specific feedback about Select Auto.

So after a lot of attempts finally gave my Vento TDi Highline (1.6L, 2012, 99K run) to Sunil ji today. Has a list of things to be done:

1. Car is overheating while idling, or when I get stuck in a traffic jam, curvy ghat roads. Basically anywhere the radiator does not get direct airflow. Have recently changed pump, radiator fan and coolant tank. But the ASS still couldn't figure out why the car was overheating.

2. Suspension needs maintenance. Had overhauled 30K kms back.

3. Knick-knacks related to loose wires etc.

4. FL ABS sensor has gone kaput.

5. Needs services

6. Odd noises from here and there.

Basically the car feels 'loose'. Here's hoping it comes back tight. Am putting off replacing for at least 2-3 years, and will probably buy a pre-loved Superb / Octavia. Was looking for a pre-loved Jetta but didn't find any in my range.

If the car is diagnosed mechanically well, next up: paint overcoat and upgrade to RCD 360G

Where is the Garage/workshop located now? Last time i knew his garage was going to be relocated.
It was on Dadasaheb Phalke road, hardly some distance from Hindmata signal.

Sunil Has been maintaining my cars since 2016, I recently got my V40 serviced by him, a short review since I haven’t posted one here for sometime! Thought its benefit all. He’s been maintaining my V40 since the very beginning.

I completed 5th year of ownership this year and this is the 3rd service at Sunils. This service got delayed due to the COViD.

Job Required:
- Oil & Filters Change
- Brake Service + Cleaning + Brake Fluid Change
- Handbrake wouldn’t hold the car in Neutral so that needed to be repaired
- Since the car was approaching its 5th Year I asked him to inspect the Timing Belt & Coolant too.

I had a sealed 3.5L Mobil 1 5W-40 oil at home, I asked Sunil if he’s okay with me sending my own Oil, he had no problems, I purchased 2L more from City Motor Co, Opera House since the car takes about 5.2L of oil. As COVID restrictions were still ON I requested Sunil to return the car on the same day it comes in, after some persuading he agreed! Had my driver reach the workshop at 10am and the car was back by evening.


Positives:
- As everyone said here, he’s really honest and straight forward, also very knowledgeable
- Mechanics are well experienced
- He will personally inspect every car post service
- He would not change or charge you for something that is not required
- Labour charges are reasonable


Negatives
- Turn Around time for a service is long, You would be away from your car for 3 days atelast
- Don’t expect your car all vacuumed and shampooed professionally, You would probably have to have it cleaned properly once home.
- High Spare Parts costs: Let me explain, You get compatible parts at all price ranges, from cheap aftermarkets, to some decently priced OEM’s (good quality too) to super expensive ones on par with what an Authorised WorkShop would charge. Sunil always uses the expensive ones from the lot, I can’t explain why. This goes for everything from filters to pads/discs to suspension parts.


I had spent around Rs 4500 for 5.5 Liters of Imported Mobil 1 oil.

If I hadn’t brought my own oil consider the service Amount to be around Rs 18,000 since he would charge me at MRP for the Oil and by all probability it would be locally Manufactured oil.

Enclosing Invoice for everyones reference

Observations:

The car is obviously a lot smoother after the Oil & Filters Change, However surprisingly the Handbrake issue has again cropped up after 2 months of having it repaired, I informed Sunil and would have to take the car back to him for inspection and repair. Didn’t expect this, but probably it needs a deeper investigation. I would definitely be sending my cars here in the future too.
