Steve Breley

Steve Breley | Parts Manager

As far back as Steve could remember he always had his eye on a black 911 with a Targa roof top. As soon as he could drive, he was always modifying the car. Every time Steve bought another car, his dad would always laugh as he knew the first thing Steve would do was change the stereo…and then the wheels right after. It had to be different. Steve has owned many cars over the years, however still not that 911 Targa, yet. Steve’s passion for cars brought him into the automotive industry. He was on my way to becoming a technician, however his focus changed once he was led into the Parts Department. “Just look at all those parts that belong on cars!” Steve has been in the automotive parts industry since 1994 with extensive experience working with luxury brands. Steve’s main focus is always the customer. Steve enjoys meeting new people and assisting them with their vehicle needs.
