I've been trying to find a good honest shop for my car and thank God I ran across L&M. From start to finish I felt so comfortable. They gave me the peace of mind that I needed for my car (BMW 328xi). For a month I've been taking my car in

I brought my car to L&M after a botched a valve cover gasket job. They explained to me everything that they would do to fix the issue and they fixed my car in a few hours. The price was great much cheaper than I expected for a specialty

L& M (Michael and his father Billy) preside over the best auto repair shop I have found over my many years of driving in the tri-state area. They are professional, knowledgeable, personable, reasonably priced, and perhaps one of the most

Bill is one of the last surviving honest guys who will tell you exactly what needs to be done and do it at a reasonable price. It was a pleasure having my car fixed at L&M.

I took my MINI Cooper to L&M and had an excellent experience. All I wanted was an honest mechanic and someone who specialized in my type of car. Bills shop has all the right diagnostic equipment for Minis and he was super helpful. He was very honest about everything that was wrong with my car and this helped me decide which repair was the priority and what I could afford.

He obviously has many years of experience, and was constantly updating me on the progress of my vehicle repair. I really appreciated this and he actually showed me the repairs as they were being carried out through photographs and regular updates.

Just a benchmark, Bills shop was about half the price or less compared to the same work quoted by MINI Manhattan. If you need to repair your MINI and you have a budget, Bill will give you a reasonable quotation and he works fast.

When I picked up the car, he showed me all of the work that had been done and explained how all of his mechanics have been working with him for many years.

When I got my car back (clutch repair) it felt like new, and he also gave me the full diagnostic so I know what other things need to be done on the car when I can afford it.

I would highly recommend Bill for Germans car repairs.
Thanks L&M, I will be coming back!

It's so hard to know when you're getting your car well-serviced or whether you're just being managed by a smart sales person who's mechanics are doing a lousy job. Michael

WONDERFUL SHOP! THANK YOU! L&M Foreign Cars is a GDsend. I was referred to this place by a girlfriend who drives an audi and has been taking it them for 2 years. She assured me they also work on Volkswagen ( I was nervous about it because I always take my car to the dealership in manhattan).

My car decided it did not want to start last Tuesday after many years of faithful service. After having a nice conversation with Billy (the owner) on the phone , I had it towed in. An hour later I was there talking with Bill and his son Michael face to face.; I??m older women and really expected the worst when it comes to mechanics, I was stunned when they called me 4 hours later telling fixed. It was a simple part that cost $15.00 and my car was ready. They could have sold me the Brooklyn bridge . but instead explained to me in plain English that it was a bad relay which is a common problem with this model, and went on to give me a prioritized list of repairs. My total bill was $120 for diagnostics and $15 for the relay, no labor charge! Bill was very patient with me and even took the time to ride around the block with me to listen to a noise I had been hearing, and make sure it started up a few times, until I felt comfortable it was fixed. I will say that the ride out to Brooklyn is a schlep, but totally worth it! They paid for the taxi to the closest subway up the block and their service was great. You can tell your dealing with people who really do enjoy their job. Also they have the nicest and loveable dog named Cole. I have never once taken my car into a dealership without spending $600 this place is WORTH THE TRIP. This place is a GEM. Thank you guys for your honesty and incredible service, this was a helpful and informative experience. you have a customer for life.

Do not trust a thing the mechanics at L&M tell you. I have a 2004 VW Golf, and brought it to them 2 years ago because my EPC light kept coming on, making my engine go into "limp" mode. Unfortunately, the light was intermittent, and often came on only after driving for 30 minutes. They charged me at $115 diagnostic fee and then told me I had to return when the light was actually on for them to test it. I returned several times over the next two years, but they kept giving some reason to not diagnose the problem. They claimed it was likely the wiring harness or computer, both of which are very expensive to replace (up to $2000). Finally, when I brought it in a couple of months ago, they told me my car was UNFIX-ABLE and I should bring it to a junk car because it had no value. I knew this was completely untrue (my car has $6000 blue book value). Finally I took it to another mechanic, who replaced the sensor, charged me only $400, and now I have a working car again. These guys claim they are electrical experts, but obviously not. Sure, bring your car to them if you need an oil change, but not if you need them to use their brains and diagnose a problem. Also, they are VERY rude and condescending to women.

Brought my 2010 Audi S4 here recently for some minor body work. They were very upfront, honest and did an amazing job and had my car back to me very quickly. Best part is that they were less expensive by almost 50% from both the Audi dealership and the other shops I checked. Great father & son team. \n\nThe detailing job also made my car look better than when I bought it. \n\nCant recommend this place highly enough.

After having my 2003 Audi A8L break down right outside the Lincoln tunnel a reputable repair facility that specialized in working on Audi's was in line. L&M came up first shot on a google search for ""Audi Repair Shop"" near my georgraphic loation. Called up L&M and spoke to bill over the phone, he did a quick diagnostic on what's going on with the car so he can understand what occured prior to the break down. He then explained that he would be more than happy to work on the car and that he also personally own's a A8. Bill's own personal words before I left their shop that afternoon were ""Don't worry, you will be happy you brought your car here""\r\n\r\nMy car was towed in and given a spot in their fenced in yard. He explained what the process was goign to be with the diagnostic for my car and showed me their diagnostic set up with the latest software and computers.\r\n\r\nA free ride to the local train station was even offered once my vehicle was at their facility as their care for customers getting to where they have to go without their vehicle is even catered for.\r\n\r\nHe diagnosed my issues by the end of day and had the car running before the shop closed that night. A full explanation of what caused the break down was given.\r\n\r\nI've been to a few stealerships and smaller automotive shops, but L&M takes service to another level. A professional team with experience and knowledge for a specialized group of cars.\r\n\r\nPrices are fair compared to what you will pay at the dealership. The price they charge for their service will still beat any dealership price from my own personal experience.\r\n\r\nI would recommend them hands down. There are very few talented and honest technicians/shops that still exist and L&M is one of the few.\r\n\r\n- Black 2003 A8L...\r\n

I found L&M on Google after I got rear-ended and needed to find a place to fix up my Audi. I'll never go back to Audi Brooklyn again after a horrible service experience. Bill and his boys did an outstanding job but it took them a little longer than expected, which he explained was because of a previously undetected problem. I can't comment about their prices because the other party's insurance took care of it all. I would definitely recommend these guys if you own a German car and want an alternative to the incompetent blood sucking dealers in the city.

My BMW makes its home in Dutchess County but had a temper tantrum in Canarsie. Thankfully L&M knew how to handle the situation. Billy and Michael are too personable and professional to be believed! I'd drop by just to say hello. The service was impeccable, more than reasonably priced -- and, as important as these, fast: L&M should be a poster child for reasons why ""I love NY."" A great find and happy ending to an emergency auto repair. Disaster was averted -- and the car that 'limped' into L&M drove home to Dutchess.

There's nothing quite as horrifying as tooling along at 70 in the fast lane during a downpour and having the wipers stop. The windshield is covered in water within two seconds and you're left fumbling for the emergency flashers while you decelerate and pull over.\r\n\r\nThe first time I brought my '97 528i to L&M, Bill told me he could fix my wiper problem, even though BMW told me they put four mechanics on it and couldn't. But when I went to demonstrate the wonky wipers, of course they worked just fine. Bill told me to come back when they broke again. \r\n\r\nWell, I only drive the car on weekends, and it doesn't rain all that much so a couple of years have gone by. With the recent rains, I took the car in and spent almost a grand to get rid of this problem forever. Bill and his boys stand behind their work, and they're quite good at it.. There are enough testaments on Citisearch to prove that. \r\n\r\nI was thinking of selling this car, but Mike told me it still has a lot of miles left to go so I think maybe I'll hold on to it for another 13 years. It's a great driver and, now that I feel I have a mechanic I can trust, I hate to let an otherwise good car go.\r\n\r\nThanks guys!\r\n.

Look. How many times have you ever been compelled to relate a positive experience with a mechanic? I'm not the only person that has specifically created a citysearch acct to do exactly that, read down the comments... These guys inspire a fanatic level of devotion. When last I was at the shop, I saw a mini come off a flatbed from Las Vegas bc the owner specifically wanted it to be in the capable hands of Billy, Michael, and Mark.\n\nPut simply, You would be hard pressed to find anyone who can do a better job, anywhere. These gentlemen are the absolute best at what they do and great, great people besides. Their labor rate is in keeping with anyone who is actually competent to work on the types of cars that they specialize in and the level on personal detail and attention is unparalleled. Try taking your e46 to BMW manhattan and getting one of the service techs to road test it with you...yea...not gonna happen... This is the first thing Billy does when you bring your car in. Also, the turnaround is ridiculously fast. Each time I've taken my car in, I've had it back exactly when they said it would be done.\n\n\nI'll preach the gospel for these guys and will never take my car anywhere else again.

Pros: communicative and honest counsel, expeditious, friendly

Cons: only the trip to Utica ave

L&M is the best. We were having problems with our 2006 Mini overheating and brought it to the dealer for an estimate (that they charged us for) - it came back at over $3k!!! We brought it to L&M and $1500 and 2 months since the repair we couldn't be happier. My only regret is having been too busy to write this review sooner. Thanks L&M!

Cons: Location is a drag but well worth the excursion.

L & M is the best. I had an electrical issue in my 1997 BMW. The 2 so called "BMW Specialists" each held my car for 1 week and created more problems than actually finding the problem. I went to Billy and Michael, and they had it done in 3 days! (1 day waiting for car part incl.) The car was running like new, now its running like brand new!!! Thanks guys!!

These guys did a great job with my car, worked with both Dad and Michael. Too bad it wasn't cheap - but I guess it was cheaper than getting it done wrong the first time. Would recommend

I literally signed up for CitySearch just to write this review -- I am that pleased with L&M.\n\nL&M just does everything right. It is family owned and operated, and you can tell. I dealt with Michael, Bill's son, and then also Bill when Michael went away for a week. Both people were exceptional. They provided great clarity and have very specific and thorough communication. Every single element they were going to work on was thoroughly communicated -- I knew exactly what I was getting into. Service was fast and they were able to make a tight deadline that I had to reach.\n\nWhen I picked up my car Bill was so proud of the work they had done that he kept asking me over and over how I liked it. That is the main thing that differentiates L&M and Bill and his family -- they take legitimate pride in the work that they are do, and they are master mechanics.\n\nThere is only one fault I see with the place, and that's the location. It's tough to get to -- particularly if you don't have a car. But when I dropped my car off they paid for a cab to the subway, which made it a bit easier. But I can't express enough how worth the trip it is.\n\nReally, if you have a German car that you care about and live in the New York area this is the place to go -- hands down.

These guys are quite simply the best mechanics in NYC, and possibly the entire Eastern seaboard. (I feel qualified saying this, having had numerous Volvos fixed in 4 states over 23 years.) I dealt w/ Michael who is competent, honest, and personable. He explained in (layman's) detail exactly what my car needed, prioritized the repairs, and helped me come to the decision that my car was not worth fixing b/c of its age, even though that would have meant $ for him and L&M. I'm slightly wistful I won't have a car anymore now that I found this place.

L&M are the only competent, honest mechanics I have been able to find for my VW - and I have been to quite a few. I have to travel a long way to get to their shop, but in the end having repairs done correctly is well worth the extra time. L&M was able to diagnose and fix problems that were worsened by faulty & very expensive repairs at other shops nearer to my home. L&M is such a positive contrast to my other repair shop experiences, that this is the first review I've ever written. I'm now thinking I may be able to actually keep my 11 year old VW, which before I used L&M seemed impossible because of the frequent & expensive unresolved problems and faulty repairs. I think a lot of the problems with VW is not so much the cars, but the lack of competent places to have them serviced and repaired. L&M is the best place I've found by a mile! If you have a VW Passat with the very common interior water leakage problems and resulting corroded wiring and electronics, L&M can fix it for you, and will take the time to identify and stop where the water is coming from. I paid another repair shop hundreds of dollars in labor for the same thing, only to find out they didn't even try to stop the leaks. But my intention in writing this is not to make this a rant about other bad repair shops. Based upon the problems they have sorted out with my car, I want to highly recommend L&M as skilled mechanics who really do their best to get the job done right! Thanks L&M!

Cons: None. Really!

I bought a VW van and Bill was able to give me a straight rundown of what I'd have to do, essentials and unessentials. It was expensive, but I was informed of what was being done and given options. Repairs and pricing was explained to me clearly so I could understand. I wasn't rushed out the door. I feel lucky to have found a mechanic I can trust.

Pros: Can trust them with a foriegn car

.

I really wanted to like these guys, and was fully prepared for a wonderful mechanic experience, based on the preponderance of glowing reviews on this site, but...my experience with L&M was below average to average (at best), and my mechanic search will continue. I think that people have such low expectations of mechanics, that they just get overwhelmed with emotion when they encounter one who is seemingly honest, or otherwise comforting (see almost every other review), and while L&M definitely lay on (and cash in on) a certain style of customer service, that other mechanics would be wise to employ, in the end, I didn't sense that Bill and his sons were any more honest or better skilled than average. I was back and forth to them several times before they kinda fixed my car.

Pros: They just might fix your car

Cons: Expensive labor; Not open at all on weekends; Far.

L & M Foreign Cars turned an unsavory experience with an unscrupulous Manhattan Auto Repair shop into a thorough and smooth restoration of our car. \r\n\r\nMy daughter, who had our Virginia based VW in Brooklyn, N. Y. over the holidays, collided with road debris in the Lincoln Tunnel. She had the car towed to 54th St. Auto Center on Dec. 30th for repairs, diagnosed by them, as oil pan replacement. The ?repair? failed, the engine ?seized?, the auto shop refused to release the car for repairs elsewhere, refused to calculate what ?charges? were due on the car, even lied about a check they received from our insurance company. Bad scene upon bad scene ? three weeks into her ordeal - I told my daughter that I would handle research and repairs from Virginia.\r\n\r\nBill Roth and his son Michael listened to my telephone account of the ?nightmare? experience, asked numerous probing and intelligent questions about the accident and the car?s condition, and agreed to take on the project. All this occurred after a 15-minute conversation with a total stranger. The VW is a 2001 GTI and is now better than new! It has always been a good car. With it?s restored engine and numerous other adjustments necessitated by the accident and subsequent faulty repairs, it should serve for many years of safe and enjoyable driving. It?s reassuring to know that we now have a superb shop of mechanics to call on the Brooklyn to service the car in the future. All of the work to restore the engine was accomplished within the budget established by the adjuster sent out by our insurance company. \r\n\r\nI could not recommend more highly the multi-generational L & M Foreign Car-Guys. Like good surgeons everywhere, Bill Roth called the day after my daughter picked up the car to check on its performance. I am left with a renewed faith in the honesty and skill of truly fine mechanics. Theirs is an art form of the highest order.\r\n\r\nMary Wheeler\r\nFredericksburg, VA\r\n

I discovered L & M two years when on a trip from Boston into NYC my car broke down. After hearing the umpteenth shakedown from Audi dealers (brakes, coils, suspension) I took a chance and went to L & M.

The folks at L & M told me exactly what was wrong, fixed it, and I emerged without feeling I'd been ripped off. From that time on, each time I need something done, I'd drive down from Boston to Brooklyn for servicing/repairs.

Then I moved to Toronto (Canada). How good are these guys? I time my servicing during vacations so I can bring my Audi to L & M.

These guys are honest and smart. After they fixed the AC on my BMW (pulling the dash and reconnecting wires) I picked it up. A few miles down the road it stopped working. I took it back and they had to get another part. They didn't charge me labor for the extra work. It's hard to find a way to get around the dealerships, which rob you blind. These guys are the best alternative I've found.

I love this place and so does my 1997 bmw .Billy and his sons service him. They are all beyond courteous in every way. They perform only the work needed to get the car running unless they throw in extra adjustments and updates to tweak him out. I would highly suggest them to anyone with a foreign car. Love these guys! DEL

recently used l&m foreign cars, they were referred to me by a friend of mine that had a good experience. unfortunately mine wasnt. to make a long story short, do not deal with the sons. if you do decide to go there only work with the father (owner). i was not happy with the service or the bill. i felt like the sons wanted all my money, i was not happy.

Great overall experience!\r\n\r\nBill and his sons are very friendly, accommodating, and they treat their customers with honesty and respect.\r\n\r\nThe elusive mechanical noise that I've been hearing for months was finally diagnosed. Bill personally took time to drive around with me, pin-pointing the issue. Everything was properly explained, estimated and all the work was done in the best time frame possible. \r\n\r\nI highly recommend their services to anyone in need of high quality automotive mechanical expertise.\r\n\r\nMany Thanks!!!

I've been to many mechanics all over the place. Now I have found one that I can trust and not worry about getting ripped off or getting terrible work done. \r\n I went to get some things checked out, and the experience was amazing. Long story short, The service is great, the prices are great, and the guys over there let you watch and learn about everything they are doing to your car.\r\n I learned more about my car in one day than I would have in a lifetime! The coolest part was the diagnostic testing. You get to see all the codes and the readouts on a big plasma screen TV. \r\n I never thought getting your car fixed could be such a good experience. I want to thank all the guys at L & M Foreign Cars. \r\n Paul B.\r\n Brooklyn, NY\r\n

My band is on tour and our AC went out in record heat here in New York. Finding a trustworthy mechanic was a bit... terrifying! The folks at L&M were not only amazingly fast, reasonable and thorough, but an absolute pleasure to hang out with! Billy the owner is an enlightened mechanic... This a man that loves his job and is truly passionate about his work and his clients. So stop to get your car fixed, and stick around to earn a bit about the world. THANKS SO MUCH BILLY!\r\n\r\n

All I have to say is they are the BEST!!! Best Service, Best Price, Best Everything. I have NEVER in my life or as long as I've had my Volkswagen Passat had a good experience with fixing my car. To the point where I started hated my car. It is not the car, it is the dealership mechanics who don't know a thing about fixing a car or about quality customer service. L&M will always have my money. If my car needs any work or has any problem, I will bring it to them. \r\n\r\nBEST EVER!!! DO NOT GO ANYWHERE ELSE!!!

i am not normally one to fill out these reviews, but i feel compelled to do so because of the fact that L&M saved my car....i have an older model volvo and the timing belt snapped, any other place would have told me the car is toast and to forget about it. L&M took it in and spent literally less than 2 days including parts delivery time, and changed my car completely. they not only replaced my timing belt, but cleaned everything in and on the engine, i swear it looked like they put a brand new engine in. once you meet them you understand that it is ok to leave your car with them, they take over and walk you through what they are going to do and and don't do anything without calling you first and making sure you understand what they are going to do, once they got my OK it was done in one and a half working days! \r\n\r\ni am definitely sold, they may be kind of far out there, but to me i would drive all the way to providence if L&M were there. Yes....they are that good.

My VW wouldn't run and the check-engine light was on as well as a few others. It was New Year's Eve and I had to get back to upstate NY--230 miles away. I called VW dealers in Bklyn and Queens. If they were opened, either the service department was closed or they could have the car back to me in 4 days. But I couldn't stay and realized I'd have to place myself at the mercy of unknown repair shops in Bklyn. My daughter found L&M Foreign Cars online. I got towed there and they couldn't have been more open or spent more time explaining what was wrong with my car. They diagnosed my problems online at the VW site. They blew away leaves under the hood, replaced various filters, hooked up a hose that had come undone, fixed a broken gasket that was leaking just a trickle of oil, cleaned the engine, took it for a test drive. Billy didn't like the way it drove, so he had the tire pressures checked: the rear passenger-side tire was over-inflated. The passenger side door didn't close flush; he fixed that. He had me try the wind shield wipers: streaky. So he got alcohol and cleaned the blades: no longer streaky. He wanted me to drive around about 40 miles before I took it on a trip upstate; I drove around Brooklyn for about 20 miles then had to go. He made me promise to call after New Year's to assure him that everything was OK. He fixed not just the problem that brought me to his shop, but the problems with the whole car. He was very open and honest, and I left feeling that my car had never been in such honest, intelligent hands. It's 250 miles from home but I have to be in Brooklyn fairly frequently and may make this place my repair shop. They were great.

He had me try the wind shield wipers: streaky. So he got alcohol and cleaned the blades: no longer streaky. He wanted me to drive around about 40 miles before I took it on a trip upstate; I drove around Brooklyn for about 20 miles then had to go. He made me promise to call after New Year's to assure him that everything was OK. He fixed not just the problem that brought me to his shop, but the problems with the whole car. He was very open and honest, and I left feeling that my car had never been in such honest, intelligent hands. It's 250 miles from home but I have to be in Brooklyn fairly frequently and may make this place my repair shop. They were great.
