With a diverse history in both performance and dealer service Byron has been a great addition to the Bullet technician staff. He is also a welder, which comes in handy for those pesky E46 M3 subframes. He loves classic BMWs and playing with his kittens.

Michaela’s father exposed her to racing while she was a toddler and that’s when the Bullet connection was made. The BMW brand and Bullet have since been a regular part of her life. In Michaela’s free time, she enjoys random adventures with friends, travelling (especially England), photography, listening to music, spending time with family.
“I have been going to Bullet for 15 years and 3 different BMWs. Mickey and his crew are the best of the best, always keeping me running. Everyone is kind and professional. I can't say enough about the integrity of this shop, they've never sold me a single part I didn't need, and often they advise me that I can come back and fix something next time. If you have a BMW this is the place to go for maintenance.”
“This place feels the same as a genuine BMW dealership but without the high cost and long wait time. Took me in the same day I called for brakes and spark plugs. Few hours later car is ready to pick up. Fair price and honest recommendations by Terry. Great service, will come back later if I need any other service.”
“ Hands down the best place to take your BMW! I was referred here by a friend and am so glad I checked them out. I was a little nervous about owning a BMW because I always heard about maintenance issues but these guys put me at ease and not only gave great service but they educated you on what the issue is. ”
