  •   2008 997.1

    You get what you pay for... top notch service from an indi shop that lives and breathes euro sport. These guys pay attention to every little detail. Maintenance and inspection through these guys is better than dealerships. No regrets, definately found my go to shop for anything Porsche related.

    -no haggle no bs
    -only oem or better parts
    -knowledgable staff AND owner
    -straight up PROS

    They stand by their work and I now see why. UNDERSTAND, they're not low budget by any means but quite honestly, if you can afford the vehicles they work on, you can afford their service. Dont hesitate to swing by or give them a call.... hell, these guys will let you pick their brain at no charge and can go on for hours if not days with what they know and do best.

    Bonus, got a mini detail after my 997 was complete. Didnt take advantage of the pickup and drop off though. (I didnt know) lol

  •   I love Bruce and his team!  Had my service completed yesterday. They gave me a ride home and came back to get me when they were done. Not only did I get recommendations but I was not pressured for the upsell. In addition, I received a beautiful car wash and vacuuming that was well over due. Bruce - you guys rock!!  Thank You!

  •   Found Autowerkes through Yelp after reading some great reviews. I took my 2012 911S in for service and cooling repair. Can't say enough about how those reviews were true. Bruce took good care of my cancer and the quality of work was fantastic.

  •   AutoWerkes is a top notch repair shop that specializes in German vehicles.

    This shop has really knowledgeable techs with a lot of experience. They only use high quality parts and stand by the work they do. Saying that, let me point out they are not the cheapest out there, but they do the best work, and it's worth it.

    I usually deal with Bruce in the office. He is one of the owners and really knows his stuff. He can identify your issue and use his computer database to give you an accurate estimate for the repair.

    Bottom Line: You have a nice car, take it to a good shop. Autowerkes will fix it right :-)

  •   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 trusted Autowerkes for a few years now, first with my 996 and more recently with my 991. These guys are absolutely top notch in all aspects, including extreme attention to details, passion for Porsche, state of the art diagnostic instruments, total honesty, reasonable rates and most importantly .... total willingness to give technical advice even in cases when it may not add anything to their bottom line. Their troubleshooting skills are remarkable. My 996 experienced some intermittent electrical problems, Bruce and his team got to the bottom of it and solved the problem permanently. My 991 started swerving at high speeds after I made the mistake of trusting a tire shop with the selection of a high treadwear tire on my rear wheels. When I described the symptoms to Bruce, even though I did not purchase the tires through Autowerkes, he took the time to explain the characteristics of some tires and how to best select high treadwear tires for my 991. I followed his advice and my 991 is again a pleasure to drive.
    Hats off to Bruce and his entire team and thank you for making me a very happy customer for life!
