They do really good work but the cost for repair for a BMW is expensive. They're OK besides that.

Because they are absolutely professional; his staff is amazing and they take good care of me. They have taken care of me and all 5 of my cars for the past 22 years and they do an excellent job.

Verified CustomerDecember 24, 2013

They have been taking care of a succession of cars for my brother and I for years, they give good advice for our time. I especially like how I can get information on whether or not I should fix an old car or not, and the owner Manny offers pick up and drop off services that fit your schedule.

Verified CustomerNovember 21, 2013

Honesty and integrity.

Verified CustomerNovember 21, 2013

They fixed the problem and at a good cost compared to European shops. He charged me about 80.00 and hour. That's really good for this area. I tried to go to a specific shop for European and American. Better service. I got confused once when I drove up. They did the repair, the next door neighbor uses the same driveway. Motor Sport Division was much nicer and did a better job. Shop is clean and they have good mechanics.

I think they do a really good job at getting you your car back the same day. It is just a little pricey, that is the only thing that kept them from getting a 10.

Verified CustomerOctober 03, 2013

It was my first time there and I was very satisfied. They noticed multiple items needing worked on that I had already known about and I was pleased that they paid attention to what I brought it in for so I'd have to say they were thorough.

Verified CustomerOctober 01, 2013

They were really really good. I liked them a lot. They are honest, they are very close by, convenient. They were really nice. He gave me a ride home and was a really nice guy.

Manu knows what he is doing. I took my BMW 325 in to check out my brakes. He took care of me even though I didnt have an appointment. My front brake rotors, brake pads and sensor was replaced a little over an hour and he gave me 15% discount on parts and labor. Definitely recommend Motorsport Division to all my friends.
