This review is coming late, but better late than never I say! In August my 2001 VW Beetle broke down, and being fairly new to the city, I wasn't sure where to take it. L&M happened to be the closest foreign car auto body shop to where I live, but it also turned out to be the best. After checking out the car, they told me it needed some pretty pricey repairs--my first thought was, am I being taken advantage of since I'm a young woman and don't know a thing about cars? It's a horror story you often hear when it comes to mechanics and body shops. But I happened to have some connections with the VW dealership in Chicago where I used to live. I ran the pricing by them at their body shop and it turned out it was all standard pricing--it was just that what I needed fixed was incredibly labor intensive and the parts were expensive. I am glad that I checked, but I am even more pleased with the fact that the mechanics at L&M are honest and hard working. In the end, they even did a few small services that they didn't even charge me for, going above and beyond for a clueless city girl. Now the car runs like a dream, and I've been informed that I have a year warranty: basically if I have any trouble with what they fixed, I can bring it into the shop free of charge. I will definitely be returning to L&M!
