Owner, Carlos Da Silva has run this shop which specializes in European car repair for more than twenty years. In addition to myself, he had develop a very loyal clientele. He has access to the most current vehicle updates, and performs the recommended routine maintenance in a more personal, yet less expensive manner than the dealership.

I moved to NYC and I still travel back there for them to service my car!

I have been going to overseas for several years, have never had a problem and have recomended them to many people and have never heard a complaint.

Overseas Motorworks has been been my primary repair facility for over 20 years. In that time, I have used another shop just twice (at their suggestion, for a problem that required specialized BMW equipment). They have kept all of my cars (an Acura, two Hondas, and three BMW's) running well, always well past 100,000 miles (one had 230,000 miles on it when I sold it). In well over 100 visits to their shop, I have been impressed with their competence, honesty, communication and courtesy (my wife likes them, too). They advise me very well on what my car needs and try to keep the cost of repairs down. Once,when I was faced with a $1,200 Acura computer replacement, they located a used computer for only $350.

Miss this shop tremendously since I've moved out of state. Carlos daSilva has always been a stand up owner and explained exactly what needed to be done and nothing more. I still recommend them to those in need in the Philly area.

THE BEST. Fix it right the first time. Honest. Explains what needs to be done and why. I miss them so much since I moved away.

I found this shop by word of mouth. Carlos is the man to call for appointments, and I thought he was very helpful, explained what needed to be done, and called me to review the cost.
