Marc has been working on my cars for a number of years. Everything from my E30 race car to my E46 330i & 328i. He knows his stuff. He used to work at another performance shop located further north of Boston. GPS is located a 5 minute walk from the Alewife T stop, and right off Rte 2 and Rte 16. He can do all the ECU and computer programing needed for airbag replacements and such, and his fee for this is much less than the dealership.

GPS is great, Marc fixed my car and explained everything he did. He showed me the parts before he installed them, and answered ALL my questions. He is located right near Alewife, and there is a rental car place next door if you prefer to rent a car rather than take the T. Or you can walk over to the mall and shop or get a coffee while he works on your car. I had a great experience!

Marc is very competent and fairly priced. He stands behind his estimates. He also is very good at keeping you informed. Highly recommend his shop.

Marc is a very competent mechanic and really seems to enjoy his work. He is honest, informative, and fair. I've honestly never worked with a mechanic quite like him. When I brought him my rare Audi he did not hesitate to throw it up on the lift and walk me through all the trouble spots that he could see at a glance. He recommended some immediate repairs and told me he could see some things coming on the horizon. What a refreshing change from the way you are typically handled at a repair shop- you wait in the waiting room until they deliver the bad news. At least this way I was able to SEE what he was talking about. This honesty made it a no-brainer when I decided to upgrade to a performance suspension. When I got the car back we both noticed some strange noises and after some research with other Audi owners it turned out the springs were installed upside-down! It was actually a very easy mistake to make because the way the springs sit in the suspension is counter-intuitive. Marc had no qualms about fixing the mistake for free. The suspension is now perfect! He really knows his stuff and I will gladly take all my cars to him as long as I live reasonably close by.

I've had a positive experience working with Marc and his employees at German Performance Service. They're professional, knowledgeable, and respectful of their customers. When issues came up with the work they had done on my vehicle, they were prompt to fix the issue and even volunteered to cover the cost of a more expensive repair to solve the problem. It's refreshing to find a business in Boston where the people take pride in what they do enough to stand firmly behind the service they provide. GPS could have simply told me that the fault was with my car, quibbled over the question of whether I deserved a refund, or argued that I had done something to cause the problem; instead, they quickly got me back in and did all the necessary work without charging me more. I appreciate their hard work and honesty. I also believe GPS to be a cost effective alternative to the dealer for BMW service and repairs.
