First off, I am moving across the country in less than a week, and I am doing this trek in my 01 325i BMW with one other person. I have only my stock HU and I have the Harmon Kardon system which I plan on utilizing and I need to work on my stereo system so the trip is less bland with only using CD's. Here is how it went down, purchased a USA SPEC: PA12-BMW iPod/iPhone integration kit online (from Pacific Stereo [fantastic to work with]) and I had held onto my 2ch amp and 10in kicker sub in a ported box from my pervious car. The kit arrives on Monday and at 2pm I roll to City Car Radio (based off of the reviews of you guys) looking to have my iPod kit and amp/sub installed, that day! (was not expecting them to, just hoped) Talk to the owner Boj, very nice guy. Then he introduces me to this guy Darren (who was incredibly nice), who as it turns out was in on his day off. Darren and I discuss placement options of the iPod cable and go through the work order. I let him know my travel plans and why I need this done asap (I honestly have no other time to get my audio work done this week, I am currently writing this while my car is at another shop getting my radiator fixed...) This is around 2:30, concerned that my car might have to stay over night, I ask them when they close--6:00pm--he tells me not to worry that they can stay late to finish the job! (5 star service right there) Spend the day on Las Vegas blvd, and my phone dies, I walk to the shop at 6:30 and they were just starting the car, (30 min after they close, so awesome of them) they tell me it will be finished at 8pm. Meet up with a friend for drinks and decide to call em at 7:45 to see if we should wait to eat and just pick the car up. They answer the phone (they have technically been closed for almost 2 hours) and tell me to come by in 20 min. Long story short, Darren (on his day off) and some over guy, I think his name is Jorge, did an AMAZING job with the wiring of the iPod kit and they even played around with it, showing me how to use it. These guys work in the service industry and man do they understand customer relations. I hope to find a shop out in NC that is as sweet as this one. The price was a little higher than I had hoped for (but competitive non-the-less) and as they had stayed really late to do the job i cant complain. They had to wire the amp into my rear speakers since the stock HU does not have rca so that added to the additional cost. Now I just need to work on damping my trunk... rattle rattle.
So your looking for a place that will install your sound system clean, precise and flawlessly? look no further than Mob Customs Las Vegas Talk to Boj or Mike when you come into this place, in my opinion, Mob Customs is the most knowledgeable staff. After giving these guys a hard time about something that was completely my fault, they still had the patience to work with me and honor the famous saying which has been around for years: "The customer is always right" I unfortunately managed to get on Boj' (who is really a nice guy) bad side when I insisted my navigation system was out of wack. In reality, I was the one who was out of wack. Nonetheless, he kept his cool with me and worked all the way through until I realized nothing was wrong. I ended up leaving the place with a custom wood bracket for my GPS tray for a very reasonable price. Also, Boj, the shop owner, is one hell of a guy who will cater to your every need and whim. Not only did he stand behind me 100 percent when I was facing my navigation issue, but he also made sure I was happy before I left. Having gone there in late 2010 to have a Pioneer double din installed, I remembered why this shop was so fabulous. Being that this particular 7" in dash screen had no pre made drop in kit, I had them cut a metra kit for me and then wrap it in a carbon fiber like material. I was extremely pleased with the cosmetic outcome of the dash kit, it looked a lot better than what I had expected. Just goes to show, if you can think it, they can do it. Also, they installed my flea market crap amp (which I supplied) along with my 5 year old Orion XTR 12" and to my surprise, made it sound like a dream. Go see these guys and you will not be disappointed. Big Jay
Bryan and his entire staff of professionals are the very best I have dealt with in over 50 years. I have an antique 1976 Chrysler New Yorker Broham I have owned for many years. I live in Las Vegas, Nevada and auto air condition is a must in our 120+ heat in the summertime. I tried for over 6 months to get a reasonable estimate on getting it fixed and $2000.00+ was out of the question. I went to the internet and found this site and business with so many satisfied customers it was unbelievable.I called for an appointment and got in the very next day. I met with Bryan the manager and was immediately impressed. He gave me a rough estimate of $250 to $350, depending on what they found in the system and what new parts were needed. Bottom line is it took about 4 yours of work and a return 2 days later because of a freon power hose that had to be ordered. I now have ice cold air with a total cost of $352.00, including taxes. All these positive write-ups of Bryan and his staff were 100% right. The repair workers even took time to talk with me personally, which is highly unusual. A 5 star rating isn't high enough. I give them all a "PERFECT 10". A super- happy customer in Las Vegas Nevada. Don.
