    i drive a 2003 Z4, H&F has been really great. i had to do my brake pads and rotors, called got other estimates and the prices were insane, took it to Farid at H&F and paid a fration of the cost plus got the same service i would get from BMW dealership. That's not the first time i used H&F, and everytime i would save a good amount of money by taking my car to them.

    I drive a honda civic. H&F has been awesome. I haven't been using them very long but they happen to be the best mechanic i have been too. My transmission blew in my car, the guy that came to tow my car recommended me to Freed at H&F Motors. I was very happy with the job they did. My car is running great now and the price was outstanding. I have been using this mechanic since my transmission and i never have any complaints with their service or their prices. I will always continue to use there service, with this mechanic you will find that they are honest, friendly, excellent at helping you out with a great price and their work is fantastic. One thing i have learned with H&F is they will not replace parts that don't need to be done. They tell you exactly what you need and when you need it.

    I have two 5-series BMWs that have been serviced at H&F, and it's predecessor company - Mighty Motors, for over ten years. I consider them my partners in the care of my cars. I started going there because the original owner, Jim Allbright, was the Technical Consultant for the BMW Car Club of Boston. I figured he'd know a thing or two about BMWs. Jim passed away a few years ago, but the current owners learned from him and soaked up not only his technical expertise but also his work ethic and creed: take care of your customer and your customer will take care of you. The quality of mechanical expertise at H&F is excellent. Even more important is that you will get honest service -- you don't have to worry that you're being cheated. The shop itself is not glamorous, but this no doubt helps keep prices low. Compare for yourself at any dealer or auto mechanic shop and you'll quickly find out how much you can save at H&F. All this without car shop attitude and with respect for the customer. If you want honest high-quality work for a reasonable price you can't do any better than H&F Motors. I'm a very satisfied, long-term customer.

    Highly reccomend trying them out! I' ve used H & F many times going back to when it was Mighty Motors in Cambridge. Farid, the owner is excellent at diagnosing and repairing my BMW 3 sereis. I'm on my 2nd BMW and continue to use H & F. I've compared them many times to both BMW Galleria and Herb Chambers BMW and every time they are far more honest and half the price, if not less. For example my heated seats stopped working and I brought to the dealership twice over a 1 + year period. I didn't believe the diagnosis the dealership gave me so I tried bringing it again so see what another mechanic would say. Both times they told me the entire seat needed to be replaced at a cost of $1500 per seat x 2 seats + $1800 for labor for a whopping total of $4800!! Farid diagnosed it as a short circuit in the wiring to the seat and repaired it for under $200. It's still working today! They inspect the car everytime I bring it in and will only fix/repair things that need to be done- they don't go fishing for work like the dealerships do. I have many examples of H & F's honesty and great work. Sure they don't wear the fancy white lab coats Herb Chambers mechanics have but do you really trust a mechanic in a white lab coat? Use them- you won't be disappointed.

    Have been bringing my car to them since it was Mighty Motors in Cambridge. Previously owned a 1993 BMW 325is and now have a 2000 BMW 328i. Great service, better prices and very honest. They have save me literally Thousands of dollars over the years! Place may look like a hole in the wall but better that than a hole in your pocket.
