“I just wanted to recognize the great service Louis Han, Performance One, gave me today. I dropped of the 330 to get it serviced. I couldn’t pick it up before your shop closed. The only time I could pick it up was around 8 pm as my wife was working late. Louis told me that wouldn’t be a problem as he can meet up at the shop around 8 pm because he lives close by. We got to the shop at 8 pm. He greeted my family with a big smile. This kind of service is going above and beyond and that’s why I like to do business with you and refer my car connections to your shop.”
