How We Started
Automotive Unlimited L.L.C. was founded in fall of 2009 by its majority owner, Benjamin Bihler. Ben studied automotive technologies for 4 years Meadowdale high school and an additional 2 years at Universal Technical Institute in Phoenix, Arizona. After graduating at the top of his class with a 3.95 GPA he moved back to Seattle and gained 6 years of experience in the automotive field.
Ben started off building and tuning high end sports and race cars for Speedware Motorsports in Redmond, WA. Afterwards he began to specialize in all German makes and models at Fine Tuning in Seattle, WA. Lastly, he rounded out his experience in working on all makes and models as the Lead Technician and General Manager of AKC Advanced Automotive and Performance in Lynnwood, WA. It was at AKC his knowledge began to span into management and business operations. The final shop he worked at was E.A.T. Motorsports in Kirkland, WA where he worked on all the Japanese Tuning vehicles such as Subaru STIs Mitsubishi EVOs including Nissan 350Zs and 240s performing custom fabrication of high horsepower and custom racing applications.
All together from his schooling to work within the field, he has 12 years experience in the automotive industry.
In his personal life he enjoys spending time with his friends and family, along his two black labs, Kayla and Mila. He also absolutely loves fishing (steelhead, lingcod, squid, shrimp- you name it)!
A Special Thanks
Automotive Unlimited L.L.C. would not exist without the help of Ben's friends and family. His mom, Cathy Bihler handles the finances and accounting with over 35 years experience in financial banking. Tom Bihler, his dad, remodeled the entire building by hand and continues to support him on a day-to-day basis. Meredith Bihler, his sister, has been much appreciated in marketing and organizing last minute details.
Last but not least, a HUGE thanks to all of our loyal customers who have followed us to this new location. Truly, we would be nowhere without you. Thank you!
