Simone's Performance Imports Experience Thread

Hi All,

This is a thread for all you G owners that have been to Simone's Performance Imports (http://www.simoneperformance.com) to have any work done. I've read up on a few threads already about this shop and I've taken my G to get some work done recently.

My experience with them is so far GOOD. They knew what they were talking about and Steve took care of my car during the visit.

I had my transmission fluid and differential fluid flushed. I also got my engine oil changed.

I really want to hear from other drivers on this forum on their experiences with Simone's and the type of work performed.

Thanks and Cheers!
Kevin

Thumbs up

Simone's is the ONLY place that I will take my cars for an alignment.

When I had my M Roadster, I went through 2 other shops before Vic had a go at it.
The difference was day & night with my car.

I had tranny fluid, diff fluid, plus synthetic oil change for just under 3 bills.

I've got a quote from Downtown Infiniti and it was nearing 400+ for all three jobs.

Vic is well known around these parts. Very highly recommended by all.

I've had alot of work done at Simone Performance. They treat you like you should be treated. A very nice bunch of folks that work there and they are honest about what they do.

I've had my springs, sways and camber kit installed there along with some general work like a diff flush and other things.

Just recently I had an issue with my trunk not opening. Three years ago, Infiniti had my car for two days to fix the problem. Vic and his boys repaired it in two hours!!!!
He even showed me the crappy repair that Infiniti did when they had the car. No more dealerships for me except for my oil changes.

Can-Align is amazing, especially with mod cars!

Don't even know where to start...

From my Maxima to my Altima and now my G35 Vic and his guys have always gone the extra mile for me. Over the years I've gained an enormous amount of knowledge from him. Even when I've wanted to do things on my own, he's given me good adivce on how to get the job done properly. Cannot thank him enough.

Stevie's alignments are also a thing of magic, he balanced my G so well I know it wouldn't feel the same without his touch.

I went back to Simone's to get my brakes serviced. He put my car on hoist and inspected them. My rears were almost worn down (which I already knew) he told me exactly what's happening with my brakes. He suggested that I only get the fronts serviced and the rears when I need to change my pads which will be not too long from now. My brakes made squealing noise and now no noise what so ever. Only thing is I have a slight wiggle when I brake at high speed due to a slightly warped rotors that I need to replace....

On the drive home I noticed my steering wheel was vibrating at speeds 110km/h + so I called him and he told me to come back. He spotted my wheel weights were missing. It turns out my wheels were static balanced and way off (Active Green Ross on Jarvis did this...). He then balanced my wheels and test drove. Now my car is smooooth as butter. I just love how my car feels! and Vic is an awesome guy.

I'm gonna be dropping by at Simone's for alignment and more brake jobs...(rotors). I will keep you guys updated.
