This journey began nearly two months ago with a routine clutch install. Little did I know I would reach the end with a face-melting, nausea inducing beast. This car goes like hell now and corners like a go-kart on steroids. Mark was there for me every step of the way. He helped me with my selection of parts all through the process and I am extremely satisfied with the result. He did not try and upsell me on anything and just showed me what all my available options were. Maciek is one hell of a stand up guy and by far the most honest owner of a shop that I've ever had the pleasure of dealing with. Not only that, but he did an amazing job with the fabrication and tuning for my car as well. And I don't know the name of their mechanic, but to me he's like The Stig. Quiet but bad as f**k. That dude is a surgeon in the shop. He changed my clutch in like 2 hours while I watched.... by himself...yup.

I can't tell you all how satisfied with these guys I am. I would consider them my friends after this build. At the end of the day, they are some good honest dudes that love fast cars and love what they do. You couldn't ask for more out of a shop. You can see the passion in their work and they have me as their customer forever.
Thanks H, much appreciate the kind words. Lets get the gremlins out of her and she'll be good as new.

-Mark

Stumbled upon these guys back in January when I was trying to decide on an exhaust for my '14 STi Hatch. That aluminum exhaust looked amazing. Pulled the trigger back in March and ordered one up. Mark and the rest of the guys do an awesome job. Nothing beats the "local hometown feel" of APM.

Had a small issue with the logo on the exhaust rattling a little bit, but talked to Mark and got it taken care of immediately. Plus a little extra tweak to get some more clearance with the carrier bearing on the driveshaft.

Again, just an awesome company/people there. Will only deal with APM when looking for parts/services from now on.

Thanks for the words Erik, it's great dealing with clients as yourself and I'm glad that we could get everything worked out in the end. I know we'll be hearing more of eachother in the relative future so talk to you soon buddy.

Also, as corny as it is, make me feel all bubbly inside knowing that we still have our humble attitudes...that's one thing I never want to change about us, that "home town feel" is really what we're all about, normal guys trying to keep a local community kicking with getting guys like you to enjoy their cars that much more.

-Mark

Default Thanks to APM

My experience with APM was great. Mark transformed my car with some simple mods: sway bars, end links, rear diff bushings, and steering rack bushings (when he changed my rack for way less than the dealer).

I recommend anyone with an 08-14 consider getting their firewall welded at APM. My groaning/squeaking/popping clutch is gone, along with the premature engagement, and my car seems like a Lexus now with all the dash rattles gone.

It's a haul for me to get out there, but they are great about helping with transportation. APM is the one thing that makes me want to go to the 'burbs.

Thanks for the words bud.

I'm glad that everything is is going good on the car, hopefully that steering car and bushings have put some more pep in the car to take some turns

It was a pleasure to meet you and I know we'll work together in the future, lets get the gear oil situation taken care of and just keep moving forward with keep her planted on the roads.

NASIOC - I picked up a Blitz cat back that I knew would not fit my car because I have a TurboXS downpipe - I called up Mark at APM and got an estimate - made an appt. They modified the mid-pipe of the Blitz Cat Back by cutting it down and welding a new flange onto it. The quality of work is excellent - the welds look like factory to me. The price was fair and the work was done in a timely manner. Best shop in Chicago area.

I went to apm to get my black bug eye tuned. Mark is very knowledgeable. He took the time and was very patient. I wanted the car tuned a certain way and thats exactly how they did it.
Maciek is the tuner at apm and he also took the time and tuned my car well. He spend a couple of hours on it rather than 45 minutes on a dyno like other tuners.
they charged me what they told me they were gonna charge me.
They are quality I would recommend them to anyone!

Tom, always a pleasure to see you smiling when getting out of here...especially when we're adding more vocals to that SWEET wagon!

Thanks Dave, I'm very pleased to here that you're getting good results with the tune and it's always cool to hear that people appreciate the little things. Time, finances and service are straight forward and the way we go about it is pretty black and white. We won't hide anything, nor do we want to make a million dollars by up selling you...you know what you want, we're here to help you get there! Something calls for 8 hours but takes 4...we charge you for four, same goes for when it goes the opposite way and you're paying to get those things done not only with professionalism but in timely manners with supporting service for if things don't go as planned.

Whatever you need just give me a ring, I'll remind Maciek to send those maps over as well.

It's more than just a sale at the end of the day, who cares about today, we want to plan out a year from today because making big dollars once vs lesser dollars over time is the wrong train of thought in a service&product industry.

Once again, thank you and we'll be talking soon about some future plans hehe.

-Mark

I should post another review, since they did the single-mass STI flywheel conversion + new clutch for the spec.B. As usual, APM did great work, Mark provided excellent customer services from sales through pickup. Not much more to be said: great service, great price.

Thanks guys.

Thanks!

Once again, pleasure to work with you bud and I'm glad what we've been doing and will continue to do as we have has worked out for both of us.

I don't remember who but someone actually gathered up the inspiration to stop by our shop when you posted something in the mid-west section...said he stopped going to shops and almost sold the car but for some reason you were the savior from an enthusiast becoming a regular joe smoe.

We'll be seeing each other at some more events too

Default APM again ! ! !

Once again Mark and his guys helped me out. They did a timing belt replacement for me in the nick of time. May have lost my motor in the near future if they hadn't.

Thanks APM ! !

Please LMK about the parking brakes when you can.

Always a pleasure Tom!

When you get back into town we'll get those parking brakes finished up and be done with the brakes on the flyin wagin.
