Testimonals

Best independent Mercedes Benz/BMW shop in Atlanta. Period!

"What set's an independent shop apart from the rest? Customer service and vehicle knowledge. And the team at Buckhead Imports has them both. I actually get better service here than I do at Mercedes Benz of Buckhead...and I also feel like Jason, Greg, Tony, and the rest of the team know my car better as well.

If you haven't given them a shot - definitely do. You won't regret it."

John P. "Pullejo"

"I was recommended by a co-worker and good friend and I am very happy they did.  The crew there is very professional and helpful plus have the best of service intown.  2 visits for my C230 and they have more than been a blessing.  I recommend them to everyone for good quality work."

Alan B.

"Great Customer Service. Genuine and Sincere and very cooperative. Faster service than I expected. Reasonable prices as well. I had recently purchased a "00" BMW 740 IL "as is". Unfortunately I found out it had much more problems after having Bulkhead Imports to diagnose it. Mark and Kevin were informative, cordial and honest with me. I have already returned a couple times  and will definitely return in the future."

Cass R.

"Tony, Jason and the rest of the BIP team have taken exceptional care of me and my '01 X5!  I couldn't ask for better people or service!  Thank you guys for everything!"

Car Myths

Myth #2: You can drive a long distance on “empty.”

As a matter of fact, you can drive many miles on empty. Most gas tanks hold about two gallons in reserve.

Car producers have seemingly created this gauge for the forgetful, but this feature is actually an ingenious marketing strategy. Gas gauges are not linear. They are designed to stay “full” for numerous miles. Then, the gauge moseys down to “half” before quickly plunging to a “quarter.” Gradually the marker moves to zero, at which point you have about two gallons.

When the gas is filled, it stays “full” for countless miles. This assumption misleads you to believe in your car’s superb mileage. When you finally hit 'empty,' you feel lucky to drive such a long distance.

Some experts do advise against running on empty. The truth is the car gets to a point where it is starved for fuel. The vehicle then takes a long time to re-pressurize. By actually starving the injectors, there is the chance of vapor lock. To avoid this conundrum, when the gas light flashes, find gas immediately.
