Did you know that I’m a car buff? Or that I created and published Arkansas AutoBuyer twenty years ago? Well, all of it’s true and to this day, I like to stay involved in everything car-related. I have two BMWs, one of which happens to be an M6, the supercar of BMW, so the care and service put into it has to be the highest quality. One Way Automotive gives my car that quality care!
One Way Automotive is a team of master-certified specialists that strictly works on BMWs and Mini Coopers. You can completely trust them with your car– be that your standard car or supercar. When I bought my M6, there was only one thing I didn’t like: the chrome. I am not a fan of chrome, so I took my M6 into One Way Automotive for some modifications. Jason Maldonado, the head mechanic, did an amazing job at replacing the chrome detail and grill on my M6 with carbon fiber. It looks fantastic!
Jason and his business partner, Dallas Miller, opened the shop in 2009 at a time when there were no small-owned businesses exclusively servicing BMW and Mini Cooper cars. “We began as strictly servicing BMW cars, but at that time Mini Cooper didn’t really have a lot of support in the state, so we decided to take on that brand as well,” says Jason.
Both Jason and Dallas have extensive experience in the automotive industry. Dallas has been working in all things automotive for close to 40 years, and Jason has around 30 years in the industry – around 20 of those dedicated solely to BMW. They know what they’re doing!
Besides BMW dealerships, One Way has been providing exclusive services for BMW and Mini longer than anyone else in the state; and with so much experience, One Way Automotive is fully equipped to handle even the most complex car. Whether you want to order parts, install a flat black grill or simply take care of some routine maintenance, they can do it -– and at almost half the price of a BMW dealership, too. “We provide everything except tire replacement. Interior trim, convertible tops, maintenance, and we have the same exact diagnostic equipment as a BMW dealership,” says Jason.
Before opening One Way Automotive, Jason worked at BMW in Little Rock. “At BMW, there would be individual mechanics that specialized and were skilled in one thing. I believe there shouldn’t be only one person for one thing, it should be well-rounded,” says Jason. He and his team know all the ins and outs of BMW and Mini, and each one brings years of experience to the table. Jason may be the head mechanic, but he says that the shop would be nowhere without the expertise of his mechanics.“Our mechanics are excellent. They are highly skilled and hard-workers, they really do amazing work.”
I am extremely happy with how my car looks and I will continue to use them for modifications if I get any more style ideas. This small-owned automotive business definitely rivals top corporations, so check them out!
