When I first bought my car in '09, a friend told me not to get the clear mask from the dealership, but to go to 503, and no one else for any additions regarding my car. Sure enough, I went there 2 weeks after I got the car, and Tim, the owner, welcomed me very professionally. Ever since that day, 503 has been my only go to place for any aesthetics regarding the car. I decided to put tint a few months later, and sure enough their service exceeded my expectations.
I have contacted Tim a few times regarding exhaust systems, and he spent a good chunk of time with me on deciding which one to choose. Him and I sat down and watched YouTube videos, and with his sense of expertise, he helped me pick the right one. I didn't think twice after I got his advice, and sure enough, the sound was PERFECT, everybody who's heard it loved it.
Unfortunately, the manufacturer of the system had an exclusive deal with another shop for Oregon customers, and wouldn't ship it to anyone else. But Tim still recommended the one he felt best fit the car. So, I ordered the exhaust (per Tim's advice), and had it mounted, but the tips were not symmetrical, went back to said shop, and they over adjusted it which still left them asymmetrical a little tiny bit (a big no-no in 503 Motoring's eyes). It wasn't too bad, but you want to make sure that when you spend money to improve your car, you really are improving with all levels. It's clear that my expectations were set by 503 Motoring's attention to detail, and that the other shop did not have the same standard as the 503 Motoring team.
On another note, Tim has shared my pain when I had small incidences with my car, and has always given me great advice. I always felt that Tim viewed me as a friend, not just a customer. I've come to his shop various times just to have a conversation with him about the car even when it was out of a business interaction.
Tim has also personally helped me the Vag-Com codes since I didn't have the cable, and made the effort to meet me and improve some of the commands of the coding. Even when the dealership reset all the commands, I came by and Tim happily did that for me.
When I decided to sell my car, I contacted Tim, and he invited me to the shop to have a little discussion on what I should do, and to what extent I should touch up the paint, and get rid of the small scratches depending on the offer I had in hand. His professional opinion helped me sell the car. I sold it a couple days ago. I loved the 503 Motoring brand, that I personally asked Tim for their license plate holders to put on my car :D.
Just had new tires and rims put on my SUV. Loved the price and the excellent service. I got a great price as well ! I will definately be going back for my next set of tires!
I just had XPEL Ultimate applied to 2 cars by the 503 team. They took the care and effort to do a superior job. Each team member did an excellent job making sure to satisfy me at every step of the process. They even went so far as to drive me home and pick me up when each car was done.
They paid attention to all the fine details and made sure I was happy with their work. I can honestly say that the experience for both my cars was fantastic. I can recommend them unequivocally for XPEL installations.
Thanks 503 for your dedication and skill, and for going the full way to make me happy. You have earned my business for years to come!
I have had 503 Motoring install clear masks (two 3M and one X-Pel) on three vehicles over the last several years. They have always done an excellent job, and their warranty cannot be beat(en)! They are not cheap, but quality never is. They provide good value for the money and they are generally less expensive that the auto dealers. I have recommended them to several friends and family members, and I recommend them to anyone interested in protecting his/her car with a clear mask.
As far as their face-to-face customer service goes, their people are impeccably awesome to work with, enthusiastic and seemingly knowledgeable, but the actual service they provide is mediocre at BEST.
When I was initially referred to them, I took my car in and we seemed to have a working plan on what was to be done with my car, including window tinting and color scheming. After an unnecessarily long few weeks, I got my car back, only to have bubbles in the tint and the color scheme not even close to what we had originally discussed. When I brought it up they offered to fix the tint job, but I would have to pay in full to have the colors redone.
It took them an exceedingly long amount of time to finish simple jobs like window tinting and small ECU changes. It usually seems the ONE person who is able to do the job is out for one reason or another. Their prices are nothing to brag about, especially for their quality of workmanship. From the amount of time and effort it took just to get the meeting and plans set up to the time it was all actually said and done, the money spent and time waiting did not factor out.
Nowadays, when I call to make an arrangement or even to ask a simple question, I get my information taken down only to be put away and forgotten about. Multiple times I have called, only to be told that "so-and-so" is busy and they will give me a call later, which they never do. This has happened three (3) times now. I don't know why I even bother. It is not in any way convenient for me to drive to their location, and I tend to feel jipped whenever I return.
They know their stuff, as long as you are talking to the right person at the right time.
I'm not saying that they don't know what they are doing when it comes to cars, foreign or domestic, but they certainly do NOT know what they are doing when it comes to running a business.
My time and money could have been spent more efficiently by going some place else.
Awesome job. Great service. Tim and the guys at 503 Motoring helped me make the right choice for my new car. I would definitely recommend them to anyone.
When I finally acquired the new Chevy Camaro, I knew that I had to protect my new investment as it was 'the' car I intended to keep for a very long time. So I searched around for a place that put the clear bra on cars to prevent rock chips and I came across 503 Motoring's website. After looking at a few photos and reviews, I took a shot and took my Camaro in.
Arriving and seeing the inside of the facility, the cars that were there being worked on, and the friendly and professional reception from Dave I knew I was in the right place.
Sure enough he did a fantastic job and used some great material to cover the entire hood which made the flat black racing stripes just shine! So, naturally I took my Camaro back and had the trunk lid and spoiler covered in the same material to make the stripes there shine too. Dave even took the extra step and put some of the 3M clear film on the rear bumper area below the trunk opening where most scrapes and scratches happen from placing things in and/or taking out of a trunk.
They have also tinted my windows and as of late, took out a few door dings and detailed it for the winter; and I must say what an outstanding job the team did!!!!
Anytime I need a detail job, accessories, tricks and any other bells or whistles done to my Camaro, I am definitely taking it back to Dave and Tim at 503 Motoring! I would highly recommend anyone who cares about their car and wants to keep it in top shape (pleasing to the eye and fun to drive), this is the place!!!
Great job on installing a new set of HREs with nice attention to detail - even the tire pressure was set correctly!
Great job at removing illegal window tinting placed by previous owner of my car! Pretty reasonable prices...and they did a lot of hand holding while I stressed out over how it would turn out and if it would pass muster. Their willingness to go the extra mile in providing documentation turned out to be enough to get my case dismissed in court. So, while I had to catch the brunt of having bought a car with some flaw by paying for the fix, I got lucky and didn't have to pay a fine. So thank you 503 - you are #1 in my book!
