Message from the Shop

Kirberg Motors, Inc. was founded by Juergen Kirberg on May 1, 1967, in San Francisco. Juergen was the west coast factory representative for Porsche until the factory operations were merged with Volkswagen of America. Starting in a basement location on Sacramento Street and later moving to a larger facility on Fillmore Street, Kirberg Motors thrived for sixteen years. Operations moved to the new location in Belmont in 1983.

Juergen's son, Ralph, joined the company in 1978. After many summers working under the watchful eye of the working technicians, a career in the automotive industry was a natural. Together father and son ran the business for several years, prior to and after the move to the present location in Belmont. Juergen retired from day-to-day operations in 1995.

Ralph Kirberg opened the doors to the new Kirberg Motors April 1, 1983 and built a new customer base that expects quality service and repair in a prompt and timely fashion. The products and services are designed to make one-stop shopping possible. Offering purchase consultation in addition to all mechanical and maintenance repairs, convenience and efficiency is a daily priority.

I have used them several times, they are quite good. They repair my BMW and they are much less costly than the dealership.

Verified CustomerMay 18, 2015

We have used them for years, they are very knowledgeable of German vehicles. They know us as customers and they always do very good work. We used to have BMW's but now we have Audi's.

Good service but they are a little expensive.

Verified CustomerMay 05, 2015

They provide prompt service, they complete the work as promised and if there is additional work that is needed they will bring it to my attention.

May 01, 2015

I took my car there for a service, the tech said everything was fine. 3 weeks later I had a major issue with my car, they told me to bring my car in and to not drive my car. I had to pay for the towing and they refused to check the fluids. I got the statement and I was shocked that they said they don't like to work with me because I wanted them to recommend service options to me.

Verified CustomerApril 13, 2015

Kirberg knows BMW. They know exactly how to fix BMW'S, they are extremely knowledgeable about those types of cars. But they are extremely expensive and that is why they did not get a ten.
