International Auto Specialist has always done great work since I began bringing my vehicle to them roughly four years ago. I've never felt oversold or pressured into getting additional services. In fact, my check engine light was on when I brought it in for service, and the issue causing it to come on would have cost close to $800. However, the shop advised the issue had no bearing on the performance of my car. I thought this was honorable and greatly appreciated.
03/09/18
They did a great job. They identified the problem and fixed it quickly and fit me in their schedule. They were very helpful and very nice.
05/11/18
It was a good experience. I would say that I saved a lot for my money. They were pleasant. The place was clean. They kept me informed about what was going on.
03/12/18
They were attentive there and caring and helped us out even after we had left. They seem to be knowledgeable and the facility, that was brand new, was really nice.
04/22/18
I went in and I just waited while they did the job. Didn't take them more than 45 minutes to do the job. I haven't had any problems with anything they've done to it.
04/16/18
It was a good experience. They were very thorough and kept the car until they knew what was wrong with it.
03/30/18
They did a great job. I paid less than I expected to have to pay. They even washed it. I couldn't be more pleased with them.
05/10/18
It was great. It was quick and everyone was very friendly.

Questions Answered by International Auto Specialist - Lafayette Blvd
My 2002 Bmw 525i Is Reading Codes P1111 And P1619. Any Ideas? on 2002 BMW 525i

1. The fuse carrier for engine electronics is a small removable fuse block located in the engine control box at the left rear corner of the engine compartment. Check all of these fuses for power and ability to carry current. Visually inspect each fuse for partial melting.

2. Check the heated thermostat. Has a plug connector on top of the thermostat housing for the stat heater. Inspected connector for heat damage. Should have power on one wire with the key on. Electronic Control Unit (ECU) controls ground circuit.

Engine Will Not Start and Fault Message "Start Error" Appears in Instrument Cluster
If you receive customer reports in the above model
vehicles of the engine not starting and the message
“Start Error” appearing in the instru
ment cluster, the drive authorizat
ion module may need to be replaced.
The drive authorization module (FBM) listed in the Part
s Information section below now contains modified
software to correct this condition.
Note:
This occurs when circuit 15 is truncated
after the engine control unit sends a drive
authorization system inquiry to the dr
ive authorization module. If circuit 15
is switched off during this inquiry
or is interrupted before the drive authorization modul
e can respond, the same variable code is again used
for the next circuit 15 cycle, as the
drive authorization module has saved t
he previous inquiry. This results
in the engine not starting for this key cycle.
To resolve, remove the old FBM control unit as
per WIS instruction AR54.21-P-1300GH and replace FBM
control unit with part number listed in
the parts information section below.
Note:
Step 6 of AR54.21-P-1300GH checks whether the vehi
cle can be started with all keys. Ensure
that all keys are available prior to beginning this procedure.

The Car Has Only 59 K. It Started Having Unusual Engine Noise When Started. on 2003 BMW 745i
An "unusual noise" is difficult to diagnose without hearing the noise in person. There are multiple internal engine parts, i.e. rod bearing, main bearing, valve lifter, timing chain and low oil pressure that can all cause "unusual noises". My suggestion would be that you have your car diagnosed by a BMW service professional.
