  •   Bruce, Phil, and Johnny have taken care of several BMWs for me over the last ten years, and the service has always been exactly as described.  They don't have a sumptuous lounge, and you won't get a latte while they change your oil, but they are fast, thorough, and all business.  I wouldn't buy a used German car without having them look it over first.

  •   I was referred to this shop by Hans Imports, a few doors down. It was a valuable referral as I took my Porsche here for general service/maintenance the entire time that I owned the vehicle.

  •   Excellent place. Called in the morning, Bruce was able to get me in by the afternoon and get my new key programmed. Everyone was super friendly, can easily tell they're all experts in their craft.

  •   Autowerkes did a great job on my Boxster. They were reasonable and very detailed oriented. I love that they'll give you a ride back to your home and also pick you up. Plus, my car was washed and detailed after the service. The owners (Bruce and Johnny, and I forget the other owner) were extremely knowledgeable and provided great insight into what things I needed. Also their prices are reasonable.

  •   We ran out of gas and our Mercedes missed fired initially then smoothed out, he looked at it and said it was ok for us to drive to San Diego and didn't want to charge us for his time.  It is wonderful to see that there are shops like this with great people are still around. We will recommend this shop to all our friends and families in the OC area.

  •   I have been taking my 2007 CPO Mercedes S550 to Autowerkes for the past 3 years.  I like going there because they are excellent at communicating what is happening with my car and they are trustworthy.

    This past week I needed a new HID headlamp, which is a bit pricy and not an easy DIY task.  They also diagnosed my Check Engine light and replaced my defective Fuel Purge Valve, which has been intermittent over the last 9 months.

    They drive me to work, finish my car on time, and wash my car, which is also nice, however I pay for their expertise and not a nice lobby with a cappuccino machine.
