Feel free to either call or email Chris with questions regarding our services, or an immediate problem you are having with your car. Please, provide a brief history if possible, and if you would like an estimate, make sure you provide the Vin number and your mileage. The Vin allows us to identify your particular engine and transmission so we can estimate the correct labor and parts.

We strive to not only service your vehicles, but also to educate you about your car along the way.

Our uncompromising goal is to be the South Bay’s leading Volkswagen and Audi specialists. We have spared no expense in procuring the latest tools and equipment to help perform this task.  We also keep up with the latest training and vocational information available.

Our integrity, honesty, and old fashioned values have kept our customers happily driving for thousands of miles. We hope that our “CAN DO” attitude will be a refreshing change from your dealership’s lackluster service.
