About Us

Kenneth Sutton, the founder and owner of Funfzehn Automotive, is a seasoned automotive technician with a passion for European vehicles, particularly BMWs. With over 15 years of experience working at a prestigious BMW dealership, he honed his skills and expertise in servicing these precision-engineered machines to perfection.

The journey into the automotive industry began with a deep fascination for engineering and mechanics. Straight out of high school, he pursued his passion by enrolling in a specialized automotive technology program. It didn't take long for him to realize his affinity for European cars, and he set his sights on becoming a certified BMW technician.

After completing his training, he landed a coveted position at a renowned BMW dealership in Southern California. Over the years, he immersed himself in the intricacies of BMW engineering, mastering the latest diagnostic tools and techniques. From routine maintenance to complex repairs, Kenneth became known for his meticulous attention to detail and unwavering commitment to quality.

During his time at the dealership, he developed a loyal following of BMW enthusiasts who trusted him with their prized vehicles. His reputation for excellence spread far and wide, earning him recognition as one of the top BMW technicians in the region.

Despite his success at the dealership, Kenneth dreamed of offering personalized service and a more intimate customer experience. He envisioned a place where BMW owners could receive dealership-quality service without the dealership price tag. Fuelled by his entrepreneurial spirit and a desire to make a difference, Kenneth took a leap of faith and founded Funfzehn Automotive in 2016.

Today, Funfzehn Automotive stands as a testament to Kenneth's passion, expertise, and dedication to his craft. As the owner and lead technician, Kenneth oversees every aspect of the business, ensuring that the same level of excellence he delivered at the dealership is maintained in his independent repair shop.

Kenneth's transition from dealership technician to independent shop owner is not just a career change—it's a testament to his unwavering commitment to providing the highest quality service to BMW owners. With Funfzehn Automotive, Kenneth continues to uphold his legacy as a trusted authority in the world of European automotive repair, offering BMW enthusiasts a level of expertise and personalized care that is second to none.
