27 years of experience
Tampa-St. Petersburg (Sarasota), FL

Hi, I’m Colin, have 25+ years of experience in the automotive industry. Grew up in a small village in Ireland before moving to America 14 years ago. Started working on cars at age 8 with help from my family, by age 12 I was conducting automotive inspections before buying fixing & selling my own vehicles. Have extensive experience purchasing vehicle’s & quickly & accurately diagnosing mechanical failures & determining corrective actions on domestic, European, & Asian cars & trucks. I drive BMW's & have all the latest BMW diagnostic equipment. Also, work on & build custom & modified vehicles. Pride myself on providing high-quality workmanship & have built a solid reputation as a highly skilled, quality-driven technician. I treat peoples vehicles with the same passion as my own & make sure the job gets done right every time with the least expense to the customer.

Amazing guy. Knows a lot about cars. Was able to talk to him the entire time he changed my spark plugs. Really funny and interesting guy to chat with!


on August 05

Fantastic! Very quick, efficient, and thorough. We loved hearing stories about Ireland while he was working. We could not get it fixed at time of appt. For it was more than we thought wrong with it. But we will definately have Colin fix it in two weeks!

Not only is Colin a great mechanic, but he is also a really cool guy to get to know intellectually. He has performed several services on my M3 and he really knows Bimmers well. I highly recommend choosing Colin for your cars needs, especially if you drive a BMW.

Colin went above and beyond his call of duty., as he finished my car a black racer snake was approaching the top of my staircase at my apartment, and it has to be my w/o r st fear, I must say he handled the situation like a man, and I will have work on my car again, as he did excellent there also
