I've got an older Porsche 911 and I was sick of getting screwed by the dealership, so tried this place out. The first time I brought it in for an oil change. The price was more than fair and the mechanic gave the car a thorough inspection

I have been taking my cars to Gabriel for 20 years and have always had a great experience. The saying ??you get what you pay for? is definitely true here. Gabriel is honest and fair and prices his work accordingly. He always does right by his clients and I have referred many friends and colleagues to him. He does a great job of being transparent and explaining what needs to be done and what can wait and why. He is very accommodating and always available when needed, even on weekends, which is rare and very helpful when your car breaks down on the 405 on Saturday afternoon. and colleagues to him.

I have a vintage car (92' 500 SL) with over 200K miles.
The technology has changed so much compared to the newer cars. Gabriel is fantastic at trouble shooting and zeroing in on exactly what my little car needs... he is generous with his time and expertise.

I love his European work ethics, qualified technicians, clean shop and the comfortable, stylist waiting area.
I love my car... she runs better that ever....
Thank you, Gabriel!!

My Free Maintenance finally expired on my BMW 525i -- and I needed a costly repair -- my bushings were shot -- the dealer offered to do it for $750...\r
\r
I went to CitySearch and saw what people said about Gabriel's German-Italian repair service. Gabriel did it for $450 -- and the car never rode better. \r
\r
Don't be fooled by Gabriel's manner -- he knows what he's doing. What's more he cares...and I took advantage of my CitySearch 10% off on labor offer. What's to say 'no' to? \r

Both CitySearch and Gabriel get 5 Stars!

Gabriel diagnoses the problems with my BMW 330 Ci and my Porsche Boxter and gives reasonable options for repair. He understands that times are tough and does not price gouge his customers. If he gets the car early enough and the part is available locally, he will get the job done within a day or two at the most, depending. I trust him, unlike other repair shops or the dealerships, who seem more concerned with their financial well being than the financial distress of their customers. German cars cost alot to repair, that goes without saying. But, if you want reasonable options and prices from someone competant whom you can trust... talk with Gabriel first.

My daughter's 05 Jetta was overheating on her way to LAX. She left the car with Gabriel and he had his guys diagnose the problem and release the car to us at no charge. I was unable to service the car, but if we do decide to have the car repaired we will definitely go back to him.

My VW was in need of a new clutch and flywheel. German Italian Motor Car gave me a quote well below the dealer's estimate, and completed the work quickly. Gabriel is a most charming man (and he liked my hat) and didn't assume because I am a woman I had no interest in seeing the used parts. Good thing since I have restored a car or two in my time. I appreciate the respect. My clutch is smoother than it ever was. I have definitely found the place to take care of my VW. I recommend this business without reservation.

My brother has 1999 S320 Mercedes and he told me that his Air Conditioning was not working and he took it to the Mercedes Dealer and they said that it was going to cost $2,700.00 and that it needed a Condenser and other expensive parts, I found German & Italian Motors and took his car there and they checked the car thoroughly for free and fixed it for $1,000.00 and it did not even need a Condenser! Business is bad everywhere but its all a result of people who conduct business in a greedy manner! I am glad I found them!

fairly and they keep my automobile running in top condition. I can recommend this service center without reservation.

I have been a satisfied customer of German Italian Motor Car Co. for years.

I started taking my BMW to Gabriel's shop for convenience (their location was just five blocks from my residence.) On each visit, I have found nothing but fast, good, honest service and lively conversation. In every occasion I have been given a ride to my office and, whenever my car had to be kept overnight, I was provided with a rental car at no charge.

I am not one to sit down to write this kind of open-letter recommendations. However, something happened today that I'd like to share. The brakes in my car have been making some expensive sounding noises for two months now and I have been reluctant to even consider having it fixed. Today, I happened to drive by Gabriel's shop and, on a whim, stopped to say hello. Upon hearing about my breaks, Gabriel insisted on having his team look at them. They found nothing wrong with them, gave it a good clean-up and my car sounds good as new. The best part, there was no charge.

I was saddened to see then move to a different location and, even though it is no longer a convenient for me to drive to it, I still do it with gusto. Gabriel knows the value of repeat business and customers like me (four years now) know it too. For me, the best part is knowing that if I happen to drive by, I can always stop for a good spresso and that same lively conversation.

If you have an European import car that needs TLC, go see Gabriel and tell him Tito send you.

Gabriel did a great job diagnosing the problem with my Audi. He fixed it in exactly the amount of time and for the price he quoted. He even hooked me up with a rental car for the day so I wouldnt have to wait at the shop all day. I have not had one problem since. He took the time to explain the problem so I understood exactly what was wrong. I got WAY better service than at the dealership for a whole lot less.

I wish i could give this place 0 stars. I joined Citysearch just so i could write this review. I took my car to these guy for a routine maintenance check and after i got my car back, my car computer started having all these issues, i got a notice that i still needed maintenance. And while they quoted me $150 over the phone, the maintenance ended up being $350 actually.

The very best service, expertise and honesty. Treats all clients with honesty and respect. German Motor Cars is the place to go for experts in the field and the very best results. I have had two cars serviced by Gabriel (owner) and have received nothing but the finest service. If something isn't right, he makes sure it becomes right. I restored a 1978 450sl and absolutely love the car, it looks like new and drives like a dream. I recommend them all the time and everyone is also pleased with their work.

Outstanding customer service, I've never had such a great experience. Gabriel and Enzo are incredible, and their knowledge of cars highly surpasses that of any German car dealership I've encountered. Reasonable rates mixed with a friendly atmosphere, it's a no brainer, if you have to make repairs take your car here! I will never take my car to another dealer again, they have set a standard that every shop in town should follow. My Audi TT operates like a champ, Thank you very Much Gabriel and Enzo, you guys rule!

You know the reviews in city search really matters! My first time experience at German Italian Motor car was just incredible! Gabriel fixed my bumper 2 days earlier than what he quoted originally, and my car looks like a brand new car:) very happy with the outcome, and great personal service! They are moving to Robertson next month, but I am pretty confident that I will bring my car to Gabriel next time I have problems with my car! Thanks much Gabriel!

I found out about German Italian Motors while searching reviews for BMW repairs. I was fed up with the high cost of bringing my car into the dealer. Several years ago the sunroof of my BMW 528 stoped working. The dealer said it would cost approximately $2500 to fix. I decided not to fix it. When I found Gabriel and he did such a wonderful job on the scheduled service I asked him about the sunroof. Much to my surprise he was able to fix the roof, do all of the scheduled servicing and replace numerous hoses and the entire cost was under $1500!\r
I would never think of going to the dealer again

The (Car) Doctor is in! I found out about Gabriel and his shop by reading these very reviews on citysearch and I've never been happier with my car service. I took my car in a few years ago after having spent thousands of dollars unnecessarily at my local BMW dealership. I have always found Gabriel to be honest, trustworthy and consistent with his incredible service and reasonable prices! He is like a good doctor in that he takes his time to examine his patient (your car) and will provide you with a sound diagnosis as well as his cure. I will never go to another dealership as long as Gabriel is around. I am a loyal customer and cannot recommend him enough! A+++

My husband has his Porsche serviced here and has always been satisfied. Recently within a week of each other both mine and my husband's cars had our ""check engine"" light activated. Gabriel and Enzo took car of my husband's car. When he heard I had a similar issue he squeezed me in and fixed it that same day. I had previously went to the local independent and they diagnosed the problem but told me I have to go to the dealer to have it fixed and incur a second charge for diagnosis. Cost at G.I. was cheaper, service better, and took less time. Gabriel is my hero.\r

I brought my BMW to inspect and repair the engine light and the person quoted me $1000, after a week\r
the engine light came on again. he told there were other things to repair that maybe the cause of the \r
problem. I trusted him again for the second time, this time it cost me $800. bottom line is the problem\r
was never resolved! he offered to take it to the dealership for further inspection ??? YES! believe it.\r
I should have done that myself in the first place..!!! avoid this place if you want to save you money\r

This is my 4th time coming in. My car needed engine mounts. It was under the dealer price by $200. Gabrielle stays late if you cannot get there by 5pm. He waited. Excellent service. He is a mechanic you can call your Family mechanic.

We have been taking our 2003 Audi A4 to Gabriel for a few years and have nothing but good things to say about our experience with him. Gabriel has always been honest and reliable. He always pays for our car rental and most importantly, has kept our car in great shape. Before we knew about Gabe we took our car to other mechanics and dealerships and paid small fortunes for bad work. Today, we don't trust our car to any one else. We travel across the city to get to Gabe's shop and are happy to do it- it is worth it!!

AWFUL customer service. I called in to get a price quote for labor on my car since I already had the parts that I needed. The man who answered the phone was very rude to me. I told him the parts that I needed changed and he kept on asking me why I had purchased those parts even though I had already explained to him that I had a mechanic from an auto shop run a diagnostic on my car. He insisted that he would have to run his own diagnostic on my car though I had already had that done. He also said that I would have to wait til Monday because even if I came in today (Saturday) he would not be able to get the parts for my car until Monday. (Someone wasn't listening because I said about three times in the conversation that I already had the parts). I just really did not appreciate how he spoke to me. He kept on questioning me in everything that I said even though I kept repeating that I had gotten all my information from a mechanic. It's not like I just randomly looked it up on the internet. Once he finally understood that I already had the two parts in my possession, he asked ""If you already have the parts, then why don't you just change it yourself?!"" Well...because I'm not a mechanic!!! I don't know if he was being sexist just because I'm a woman or what his deal is but I am sure as heck not patronizing this establishment and I hope that guy adjusts his attitude for the sake of his existing customers.

I just had my darling car fixed here and I LOVED the service. I got a FREE car rental for TWO days while they worked on my car - the reason why I decided to try this shop. I don't know one other shop that does this! (Personally, I think the person who commented before saying that the don't offer rentals is a competitor trying to tarnish their image. tisk tisk.) When I picked up my car, he reviewed all the costs and showed me the parts he had replaced. As a girl who grew up working on cars, I found confidence in his knowledge and appreciated his candid conversations about the job. I was always treated with respect, kindness and timeliness. I have ALREADY recommended this place to friends. Another bonus is that the job done on my car is guaranteed for a YEAR! You can't beat hassle free service, free rental, and guaranteed work. I work at a non-profit and so I only have a little time and money to spare. I'm glad I went with this shop instead of trying a different one.

I work at a non-profit and so I only have a little time and money to spare. I'm glad I went with this shop instead of trying a different one.

Pros: Honest Service, Guaranteed Work, Free Rental, Can Keep Old Parts

Not worth anything besides you want to throw money away!\r
Doublecheck on his car rental offer!\r
Big liar. If you advertise rental so please give one.

I don't know a lot about cars which is why this place is great for me. I don't feel intimidated and they make sure to explain everything to me in a way that I can understand. They are very prompt and professional. The facility and waiting area are clean and organized. And Gabriel (the owner) and his wife are very nice and personable. I am so happy I found this place because I have a reliable place to go when I have problems with my car or just need general upkeep and maintenance.

I've taken my BMW to the German-Italian Motor Co. now for several years, and I've always received quick and expert repairs. Gabriel is always kind and professional and always quotes me fair prices. I highly recommend him and his staff.

I have been a client of GIMC for several years, but it never dawned on me to write a review. \r
Today, after reading two negative reviews, I would like to comment. I can not believe these \r
negative reviews, because I always had a very positive experience, taking my BMW to Gabriel.\r
By the way, just two weeks ago I stopped by without making an appointment, he took care of \r
my problem efficiently and quickly. He is in the fullest sense of the word a real gentleman!\r
I only can recommend this place very highly.\r

I have been taking my 190E Mercedes to GIMCC for years and would NEVER go anywhere else. Gabriel, even when extremely busy, always makes the time to look at my car. Anything from a simple oil change to a brand new transmission - he has done it all on my little car... AND always in a timely, professional manner! I have referred several collegues (even my boss!) and friends to him and all have received exemplary service. He is one of the most reliable and honest business owners that I know. \r

So glad I talked to my co-worker who highly recommended this place... saved me $$$ by not going to the dealership to do the repair! I have a 2000 BMW 328i. One of my windows would not roll up and made 'clicking' and 'cranking' noises - first time this has happened to me. I was about to take it to my usual dealership in Sherman Oaks and they said it's probably a window regulator problem and could cost $300-400 to fix. I decided to check out this shop and found a friendly, elderly man - Gabriel. He immediately recognized the problem and said it was probably the window regulator that needs to be replaced. I was so happy.. it took him less than 3 hours from the time I dropped it off and I paid $275 to get it fixed! He even showed me the broken part to explain to me what had happened. My window was fixed in time before it rained - whew! So happy with the service... will defniitely go back again and not to the dealership anymore for all my car repairs.

After someone took a knee to the side of my '02 bmw 325Ci which was in pristine condition, I brought it to the guys Santa Monica BMW recommended. They told me it'd cost $650 bucks, they couldn't START on it until after the 1st of the year and the job would take 3 days. This is a week before Christmas. So I called up Gabriel after finding amazing reviews online, and he took my car in THAT DAY for the same quote. Less than 48 hours later he calls me up and it's ready. Unbelievable. Like brand new; perfect color match, paint job and finish. Wow. I'm really happy with the work and the personal service...Highly recommended.

Pros: Quality, Service, Convenience

I discovered Gabriel and Enzo after looking at Citysearch reviews. I had had some bad experiences with a previous mechanic who just wasn't taking the time with my 1975 BMW. Now my mom and I both agree that these guys are tops. They stand by their labor and their parts. I just dropped off my car for new brakes and it was simple and easy to go and get my rental car so I could get to work on time. You do have to call them to keep on them. Make sure to get an estimate and only take in the car when they have the parts, otherwise you'll probably wait 2 or 3 days until it is fixed.

These guys are amazing. I took a VW passat to Gabriel and Enzo that I wanted to buy. Eventhough a check up seeemed expensive at first, the 135$ will count to your next visit, they will subtract it from any later bill. So really, you are not paying anything for the service! I bought the car and had it fixed at the shop and am very happy! It's running as if it were brand new.

After reading a couple of great reviews, I took my Volkswagen GTI to Gabriel. I got a problem with my muffler bumping into my hitch and making a horrible noise. I soon as I walked in I felt like at home... Gabriel, the owner (German) and Enzo the mechanic (Italian). They looked at my car and they fixed it before I had time to finish my coffee. They didn't want to charge me anything. Can it get any better? Trust these guys; they know what they are doing!!!\r

It was one day before I left Los angeles. I went to this shop based on the positive reviews on citysearch for my A/C and bumper problems. Gabriel took a look of my car and tested it; he told me it's a leak problem for my A/C. Cause I just had it checked by another auto repair(with very good reviews), I didn't think it's a leak problem, however, gabreil found the undiscovered leak and fixed it. Besides, my bumper has been fixed at very little expense as other shops told me some parts of the bumper were broken and need to replace the whole bumper.\r
\r
I got my car back just before I leaving LA. I could see how busy they are, and they still had my work done in time. The owner, Gabriel, is really nice, honest, and responsible. His wife is nice too. And the mechanic is funny. The waiting area is clean and neat............ \r
\r
Thanks, Gabriel, the A/C is cool now.

I took my 2001 Mercedes SLK Roadster for 30,000K service and Gabriel gave me an estimate. At first I thought he was charging almost the dealer price, but when I called them, I realized how much I was saving. In my opinion trust and honesty are first, he is the most honest, soft-spoken, well-knowledged auto mechanic I've ever met. No hidden charges, no tricks unlike the greedy company service centers. You will what I am talking about when you get a job done.

I took my 1976 Fiat Spyder in for a front end paint job. The paint shop Gabriel normally uses was overbooked so he sent it somewhere else, and when I got it back I wasn't happy with it. It looked like it could have been fixed without totally repainting, but that wasn't good enough for Gabriel. So he sent it off to his regular paint shop to get *completely* re-done. When he finished, it was *beautiful* -- the quality of the paint job was way beyond my expectations! This guy totally stands behind his work, and he will get it right. A real stand-up guy, and an honest dealer. No shop in the world will always get everything perfect; the key question is whether they stand behind their work. I recommend him wholeheartedly.

After reading a couple of great reviews, I took my older BMW to Gabriel. I wasn't disappointed. The service was great and the price was right. He is never too busy to work on my car. It is worth the drive across town. Thanks for everything.

Took my Audi A4 in for repairs and they did a great job. Would absolutely recommend them for repair work. The only issue I had was payment. I only expected to pay $500 deductible and insurance company would pay the difference to the shop. However, I had to pay for the FULL amount up front. I asked why and was told they had gotten ripped off before: Customers would pay the deductible and the insurance company would send the balance to the customer to be forwarded to the shop. Some customers would cash the check themselves and they shop would be short-changed. This seemed like a valid concern and I asked him if Mercury Insurance followed this procedure. He said yes. So I paid the full amount and called Mercury. Mercury said that I was only supposed to pay the deductible and they would reimburse the shop for the rest.

I drive a 1980 BMW. When my car died near my office I decided to take it here.

MISTAKE.

After 3 days he finally told me he needed to change both my fuel pumps for over 900 dollars!

I didn't let him touch it. Then he tried to charge me a hundred bucks for the time he spent on it - when initially he had told me $60 for diagnosis. After towing my car to my reg. mechanic I found there was nothing wrong with my fuel pumps it was cheap fix vacuum leak.

I paid money for an incorrect diagnosis from this place.

If you have money that you like to throw away, and don't need your car in timely manner, and don't mind paying for work that doesn't need to be done - by all means this is the shop for you - ALL OTHERS STAY CLEAR.

Based on all the positive views here I took my car in.
He had it for 6 days. Never gave me a qoute and ordered parts I
had not approved.
These guys are NOT detail oriented and miss small and large things
such as not tightening my rear shock and not replacing nuts on my
air cleaner.
They have a casual attitude and I will NEVER go back and
CAN NOT recommend them.
Thanks!
