I have a 1992 VW GTI 16 valve. It was having a lot of random, intermittant problems. They kept seeing my car until they could replicate the problem and they tracked it down and fixed it! Much of the diagnosis had to be done manually, because of an incompatability b/w my car and their computer. (Not their fault - my car was made for import to California and is rare on this coast.) Now my car runs like a top and I'll never go anywhere else.

I have a 1995 Volkswagen Golf, and have brought it to German Motors a few times for service. They are very professional, work as quickly as possible, and although they are a little pricey, it's definitely worth it to take your german car to German Motors.

Overall excellent service on my 1999 Porsche. They seem very competent, are not quick to just replace parts needlessly, and I had no problem getting appointments. Also, I suspect that they are significantly less costly than the dealership.

Spent twenty years in the automobile business, in sales and parts. They followed VW's recommendations for service, and were less expensive than area dealers. They used genuine VW parts.

They just did my 60,000 mile service on my BMW for $225. A lot less than the dealership charges (dealership charged me about $70 just to change wiper blades at the 45,000 mile service including $19 labor!). They even washed the car and cleaned the inside afterwards.

Being a dealer, I took my 2000 S430 to them as it didnt move out of first gear. Was a simple part that had to be replaced. Cost was about $800. Diagnosing it was a problem for the mechanics we regularly use. Could have been easily done elsewhere cheaper. HOWEVER, you pay for their expertise at figuring out what needs to be fixed and they are very good at that. Getting an appt however is another was 8 days before they could get it in. Very professional and very courteous. Regards Keith Fernandes.

Brought in a '99 323i to diagnose a mysterious clicking that no other mechanic in the area could seem to figure out. They knew what it was before I could even go and grab a bite to eat down the street. I believe it's their expertise working with German engineered vehicles that gives them the edge over others around them.
