  •   After my first visit, I would never consider taking my Porsche anywhere else.  Also I would have probably dumped this 911 and gone back to Audi or Mercedes.

    I had not been inside an independent shop since 2004.  Always factory service plans, always under factory warranty.   I have been driving new sports cars until I bought a used 911 from CarMax (Don't ever do that to yourself. Their Porsche 911s were all trashed, including mine (had to return the first one after 3 days).

    I am extremely OCD about my cars.  The car needed a 40K service.  Dealer service was about $2,000.  They are involved with PCA (Porsche Club of America), so called up Bruce.  

    1-Making an appointment was extremely easy.  
    2-They gave me a ride to and from the car rental place which is very close.
    3-Perfect communication about the car.
    4-Car was ready exactly when promised.
    5-They suggested that I should replace the tires because of uneven ware (which I did the same day and was the only thing they suggested I do). And what a difference is made.
    6-They had done a full inspection of the car.  They went over every detail and explained everything to me.  
    7-The cost was less than  1/2 of the dealer price and they used OEM factory parts.

    Here is the beautiful part:
    The next day I noticed a coolant leak from.  I called them, they asked me to drive there which I did.  While I was waiting, they checked the car.  Turned out the old coolant cap had gone bad.  Within minutes they had a new cap brought in for me, replaced it and they would not even let me pay for it.  Called me the next day to check-up on the car.

    Many thanks to Bruce, Phil and Johnny.  Rare to have three ASE Master Technicians with years of experience all work on your car.

  •   I had oil change done by Autowerkes. It wasn't exorbitantly priced. They also picked up, dropped off and washed my car.

  •   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 :-)

  •   The staff (I believe owners as well) offered us the most wonderful service when I desperately needed an expert to check the brakes of my Mercedes. They found an error caused by the pervious mechanic who replaced the brakes and fixed the problem in a timely and professional manner. I very highly recommend them to anyone needing an expert who they can trust!
