Work was done very professionally. I brought the car in for routine service and they found additional items that needed to be addressed.

Very efficient, eager to help me, courteous, did the replacement with the correct part, nice carwash. I also think that they fixed a rattle without my asking.

They found the problem and got it fixed. I had been taking my BMW to a local garage and I think they misdiagnosed the problem with fuel injection and maybe even made it worse! German Motor Specialists fixed it and it's been fine ever since!

Like many mediocre auto shops, they are just relying on your ignorance of the auto-repair process to take as much money from you as possible. Not genuine people at all, avoid like the plague.

I had an issue that was complicated to diagnose but these guys tracked it down to some worn suspension bushings. The car feels great now and no more weird clunking sounds!

They are good.

by - Verified Customer July 23, 2016

Overall, very positive. Paul handled the request well and did not charge for the customary evaluation fee because he was able to visually see the problem by looking at the radiator.

Shop is as close to a dealer experience as possible in an independent shop.

by - Verified Customer July 16, 2016

I don't have any bad comments regarding their service but they're so pricey.

Professional, easy to work with, clean and tidy work areas.

GMS employees are very professional and explain all the details and background behind your maintenance - including pictures of what they found in your car, or how things are, support to work with schematics etc. As a fellow techie, but someone who knows nothing about cars, I appreciate this!

Good service. A little pricey. Oil leak was not completely fixed.

by - Verified Customer June 03, 2016

Absolutely fabulous group of people. They know their stuff and walk you through what's going on with your car and explain it so that a normal person understands. Very trustworthy!

I feel GMS offers quality services, work at a more reasonable price than BMW dealers. Additionally, Jason has always been very helpful in explaining the services.

by - Verified Customer May 24, 2016

Easy in and easy out. Pain to have to deal with rental car back and forth, but not too far away at least. Service was competent but sometimes doubt it's much cheaper than simply going to the dealership.
