  •   I had my oil change done personally, and needed help to reset my computer. These guys wouldn't take my money, and that's what earns repeat business!

  •   Bruce and the head mechanic, Phil has always taken care of me and my 5 series BMW and mercedes for the last 8 years. The whole crew is knowledgeable and very personable. These guys are honest and do a reputable job on my cars. Prices are good and beats the dealership for sure. Very Convenient to me since I live in Huntington Beach. I can always go there and ask questions about anything without getting charged for their time. A carwash when I pick up my car is always a welcomed site! After going here for so long, these guys have actually become your friends. Recommended if you are looking for honest work at reasonable prices. European cars are expensive to upkeep in general, but these guys make it a bit less painfull to own them.

  •   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.

  •   My 987 started smoking. My water pump went out and the car was fuming. I towed it to Bruce, he did a full inspection, tested to make sure I didn't damage anything else, then he found out that I had warranty that would cover it. So I had to towed to the dealer. The bill would have ran me an easy $900. I asked him how much I owed him for the tests and inspection, he told me to be safe and shook my hand and that ended it right there.

  •   This  is a great place to take your BMW or Benz.  Bruce, Johnny and Phil all have years of experience working on these cars.  The service is personal and the customer service is outstanding. Happy

  •   Don't bother with this place if you have a base model BMW.  I dropped off my car and did not receive a shuttle service because they were too busy giving rides to clients with the overpriced Porsches.  When I returned 2 days later to pick up my car and thought they were going to bring my car to me as I was waiting to pay for the repair bill.  Instead I had to dash across Talbert to retrieve my car that is now dirty on the outside with grease spots on the inside.  I wonder how much these guys charge for the car pickup and delivery service.

  •   Came by the shop couple of months ago with questions on purchasing a 2007-2009 Porsche.  Bruce gave me some ideas and what to look for.  I looked at several 2007-2009 Carreras and with Bruces info I purchased one in Newport Beach.  Took it to Bruce today who checked it over, we went for an exciting test drive, with the final analysis that it was an extremely well taken care of 2009.  Here is where I will go in the future - Thanks, Bruce

  •   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!

  •   Johnny, Bruce and Phil; Autowerks, What can I say they are AMAZING! They are priced fairly, they know their cars, they are quick, reliable, beyond helpful, very knowledgeable, they are SPECTACULAR!  I have used 98% of mechanics in Huntington Beach for over 20 years and I have never found anyone who I trusted bringing my car to and knowing it would come out getting fixed properly!  I recommend them! The only down fall is I wish they worked on my other cars that are not Mercedes, BMW, or Porsche!
