Review 10/2/2011
Johnny's Auto Clinic is exactly what the name implies; a state-of-the-art car hospital staffed by experienced technicians that properly repair, maintain and upgrade whatever "auto" you enjoy driving. In my case, I am exceptionally lucky that one of Johnny's area of expertise falls in repairing and customizing Mini Coopers of all ages. Cars nowadays are more technologically advanced than ever before and it is awe-inspiring to see the highly advanced computer equipment (necessary for the proper diagnosis of our cars) at Johnny's Auto Clinic. With MINI's, taking them to the wrong mechanic can mean disaster. Please take time to read the below letter expressing my sincere gratitude to Johnny and his highly trained staff, who have gone the extra mile to treat me like family: Johnny, All I can say is that I haven't had so much fun in my Cooper since I drove it new for the first time 8 years ago. My bulldog feels stronger and more responsive with the new Borla Street exhaust system, which was highly recommended by you. I have to thank you for taking time to explain the pros and cons of other exhaust systems compared to the Borla. You were right on the money, as usual, and I am so glad that I took your advice. As it turns out, when I picked up my Cooper, it just happened to be parked next to another one with a Milltek exhaust. I was able to compare the two side by side, which made me smile even more knowing that I had made the right choice to listen to my new friend Johnny. The Borla Street sounds tame with a confident growl that makes my car much more responsive, especially at higher speeds. I think it feels just as quiet as the stock exhaust only with a better tune; I didn't want reverberation in the cabin nor a loud exhaust that would alert everyone for miles, this one is just right. Your wealth of knowledge and experience with these cars is unmatched, in my opinion, which is why I will always commute over 40 miles one way to visit you and your dedicated staff. Rick is always a pleasure to deal with and your highly skilled technicians go the extra mile to ensure customer satisfaction, just like the owner. Please thank everyone involved in placing a huge smile on my face on my long (enjoyable) commute home. The car just breathes better and the supercharger whine has come to life. Johnny, thank you for really listening and putting all your nice extra finishing touches. I was amazed at the attention to detail that you demonstrated on the work done to my car. The exhaust looked great flush, the way it came from the factory, but you improved the look of the pipes by pulling them out a bit to show the Borla imprint on top of the tips. That was a beautiful and unexpected finishing touch that just adds elegance and aggressiveness to an amazing upgrade. Not only that, but you detailed the engine compartment and fixed all the little parts that often get overlooked. You did all this on your own, as if it were your own car, and I am extremely grateful to you for making me feel well-taken care of while at your humble home away from home.
