I thought the service was good, but still pretty pricey. Not sure if I would whole heartedly recommend them.

They are really bad about communication. They do good work. You take it in and the whole day goes by and you hear nothing. You don't get called. Other dealers call during the day but I have to go out of my way to call them.

They do good work. The work was done in a timely manner, and when I picked the car up it ran well.

They are very knowledgeable on German cars. Their service is very good. I had problems with a belt that they had replaced and I had to take it back in. Despite the problems I've had I will be taking my cars back to this shop due to the knowledge they have about cars.

They were really reliable with their service, and they communicated very well with what the work that should be done.

My engine continues to smoke and my idle is still very low and it cuts off. This is after spending 7,000 dollars with them. The two times that I picked it up after being serviced it clunked out after about a block.
