Mini’s were produced by the England-based British Motor Corporation (BMC) and its successors from 1959 until 2000. In 2001, BMW took over ownership and production of the new MINI Cooper’s. Notably, in 1999, the original Mini was voted the 2nd most influential car of the 20th century, behind the Ford Model T, ahead of the VW Beetle. This video is a terrific documentary on the history of the Mini;
Matrix Integrated was one of the first independent shops in the Portland area to provide repair and performance work on the new generation MINI’s. As the number of different MINI models have grown, from Cooper and CooperS, to Countryman, Clubman, and Paceman, including the John Cooper Works and All4 variations, Matrix has stayed at the forefront of the industry. From performance upgrades to standard repair, maintenance, and diagnosis, our ex-dealership staff is here to exceed your expectations.
I wanted to say thanks for all the help and advice over the years - I remember telling you when I first came in that I own an Audi, but I couldn't really afford one, and that's been pretty accurate. I really appreciate all the times you've heard me out over the phone as I've tried to reconcile this or that. Your shop is top-notch and when added to your good natured and honest dealings it makes it easily one of the best shops I've ever frequented. I will definitely recommend you to friends in need.
I appreciate your knowledge and professional service - great customer service as well. I am glad to be doing business with such a dedicated staff. It is wonderful having you in the neighborhood!
All good here! Thanks for checking in. You guys have been a great option for my Porsche SUV, and look forward (hopefully not too frequently.. 🙂 ) to working with you in the future.
Pete, it's a totally different Porsche than the one I dropped off. Amazing! Can't thank you and George enough! I'll write more soon, but right now I need to get back on the road.
Jeremy, Thanks for everything, it’s really nice to see a shop that has a customer-centric approach. Best communication and customer service I have seen from a shop to date.
Hi Jeremy, All is well. I’m very happy with it and everything seems to be working like it’s supposed to. The drive back home to Indiana was a blast. I have so much torque that the sunroof shade slides open when I leave a stop light/sign under normal acceleration! Thanks for all your help,
Jeremy, Thanks again for fitting in the install on such short notice. I greatly appreciate the level of customer service you’re showing for myself as well as other customers. I was just talking to Tim today about how you’ve gone about dealing with us and both had nothing but great things to say. Thanks!
You guys have some of the most neat, professional workmanship I’ve come across.
I had Stasis Tracksport’s installed. Jeremy made sure I was informed of every little detail regarding install and setup. Car now corners like it was glued to rails. Matrix has a top notch facility and has great guys running and working the shop. Jeremy is an excellent contact and Matrix’s labor rate is great compared to some other tuners out there. A++++ for Matrix.
Wow, I love this damn car. 🙂 I just picked up my ’05 A4 Avant last night. It was like getting a brand new car all over again. I got new Alcon/STaSIS brakes with 14.5″ rotors and custom painted red calipers, STaSIS Street Sport Coilovers, RS4 19″ replicas and finally a GIAC tune… I’m a happy camper. A HUGE thanks to everyone at Matrix Integrated. The quality of service and the quality of the work is impeccable. A+.
