ok I'll spill the beans... ACCORDING TO WHAT I HEARD..
Andre got evicted because he wasn't paying rent and collection agencies were at his front step every day... (short version)
The person that worked for him (Bayern - Nice guy), seem to have taken over. I believe he did most of the work any way and Andre "managed" the business. Please don't quote me on this as it's not fare to hear one side of the story.
Byern is actually working on my leased car that is due back to the dealership in a week as I write this. I'm now leaning toward having my 540 worked on by him. Bayern came over to my house to see the car and he gave a great quote given that the 540 is the second car I may bring his way and that the car doesn't need much work to begin with....
I'll post some before and after pics and let you guys know of my experience with the "new owner". I might drop it off middle of next week.
