Our review of Foreign Affairs Motorsports revealed a family owned business with deep roots in the South Florida area. They have been in business since 1978, with manager Bob Varela around since the very beginning. They have assembled an experienced team of technicians, two of whom are ASE certified with one achieving Master Technician status. Ongoing technician training is provided by scan tool maker Autologic and their parts supplier Workpac, 2 industry leaders. In addition to their Autologic scan tool, they also have many other dealer level scan tools specific for the European vehicles they service. The rest of their shop equipment is excellent, allowing Foreign Affairs to handle most any problem or repair that may come their way. Customer amenities we noted include: A local shuttle service, WiFi internet access, and after hours vehicle drop-off.

Verified CustomerJuly 16, 2014

I am sure technically they know what they're doing, but they aren't the best for Porsche first time buyers. I know absolutely nothing about cars, let alone a Porsche. I just wish a tech person would have taken some time to offer some advice. As it was, I ended up buying the same set of brand new carpets that was already in the car and a poor quality wind deflector online. Come to find out, I already had 1 which no one mentioned. I ended up paying 10K for the car and an additional 4K in repairs at FAM, which did not leave me feeling very good. And after all that, I received the car back, dirty and unwashed. And yeah, I know they're busy, but I feel one has to be a technician to deal with them. FAM is definitely not for the beginner. Anyone want to buy a Porsche?

Have been taking my Cayman S there for service for 9 years and have never been disappointed with the service, pricing or the customer service....a whole lot better than dealing with dealerships...would recommend to anyone...

April 27, 2015

I've been buying and servicing cars for almost 40 years. I've found the team at Foreign Affairs Motorsports to not only extremely professional, courteous, and knowledgeable, but 100% honest and fair. I had a water pump fail after six months and they replaced it without any charges whatsoever. I would highly recommend this outstanding company!!!!

I've been a Foreign Affairs customer for 10 years and I'd recommend them to anyone that is looking for honest, capable and top-notch service. They have kept my 330Ci with nearly 200,000 miles in great condition with many more to follow.

Foreign Affairs Motorsports has a reputation to uphold and they do immaculate work to maintain both their reputation and my car. I drive an Audi with 65,000 miles on it that requires an occasional new part. Every time I'm in the shop they treat me and my car with the same care and attention to detail they treat the Porsche and Ferrari on the lifts each side of it. With Foreign Affairs I'm secure that the work will get done right the first time. There was a recalled part on the car and I refused to have the dealer change it because I'm adamant about Foreign Affairs Motorsport being the only people who work on my car.

February 07, 2014

I had just moved down to South Florida and wasn’t sure where to take my Audi. I was looking for a trustworthy shop in the area when I came across Foreign Affairs. As soon as I walked in the door I was treated with professional courtesy. They were more than happy to talk to me and even gave me a tour of the shop! All their staff has years of experience and my car came back to me as good as new. I would highly recommend anyone that has a passion for their cars to bring them here!
