****WARNING****

Plati offered to have my BMW painted, since I wanted it to look great, paint was beginning to fade. 2 - 3 yrs later after the job, paint started cracking on hood (looked like a bird with long sharp claws walking all over it.) It also started chipping and peeling off both bumpers. Took it in to a paint shop for analysis, they recognized immediately that the car was not primed, or sealed whatsoever, which is necessary for the new paint to adhere.

Plati refused to compensate me in any way. Nothing.
The car now is looks absolutely horrible. Disrespectful and dishonest. Avoid.

Avoid. Horrible paint job, cracking and peeling after 3 years.\r
Refused to compensate me in any way. Said "it could be because of the sun". Professional paint shop told me it was car never primed or sealed. Plati wins, I lose. He's fine

I was was having some problems with my 335i, and I knew better than to go the dealer's because I definitely tried that before, and this time around, I was not in the mood to get ripped off. I found Plati based on a friend's recommendation.

My Vehicle is a BMW which is no longer covered under dealer warranty! In Pasadena there is a known Mercedes/BMW service place called Plati German Car Service. I took my vehicle in for a minor service and all-around brake change everything was completed in-time and the price was very fare! I will take my next car here. Clean and professional.

I have never been so disgusted in my life! I have been going to Plati for years, as has my father...and many friends. Not only could they rarely fix a problem on the first try but, come to find out, when they think that you are getting frustrated enough to sell your car, they tell you something is wrong with the car and low ball you with a price! This man looked me in the face and said" I'm telling you like I would tell my daughter!!" Really! Then I find out that he was completely scamming me...and I'm not the first. I am busily spreading the word, and this is one of the steps to doing that..

My old Mercedes gets the attention that it needs here. I enjoy the quick service and friendly atmosphere. The expensive high end vehicles, and classic cars that frequent this place add to its great reputation...

Nick is the best there is out there! I've been taking my car to him for years and wouldn't take it anywhere else. I would recommend him to anyone- he is always there to greet you with a smile on his face and will leave your car in tip top shape!

My 2001 325i BMW broke down in Pasadena as I was driving to UCLA. I checked with the Bureau of Automotive Repair first, and chose Plati German Car Service because of its excellent rating. The pricing was better than the dealer?s, and I received straightforward answers from the owner, Nick Plati. I was offered a courtesy ride to and from school. The car was promptly repaired, as well as washed and vacuumed. I would recommend anybody who wants first-rate quality automotive service to pay a visit to Plati German Car Service.

I just got my car fixed by my good friend, Nick Plati of Plati BMW

Motors. He may be a restaurant critic on the side or applying for

the job soon, because this man knows his restaurants in Pasadena

I love cars, especially high end. These guys really seem like they know what they are doing. Their prices are relative. You are not going to a Honda dealer or a local garage. These guys are MBZ and BMW experts.

Very nice and clean shop. Being around for a long time and know what they are doing. It is very hard to find such a clean shop. You can see that they really respect themselves.

Well, I have to say Mr. Plati has been servicing my car for a few years now, and I have always been very pleased. The work can be a bit pricey, but it is well worth it. I know my car is in good hands when I drop it off at the shop. Mr. Plati is extremely knowledgeable about cars and has a great reputation in Pasadena. The man has been in business for over thirty years, I think that speaks for itself. I would highly recommend Plati German Car Service to anyone looking for first-class service.

I have brought my Mercedes to Plati German Cars several times since I bought it used a few years ago. The prices are very fair, and the owner, Nick, is very knowledgeable and cares about getting the job done right. You don't have to worry about being duped into a service your car doesn't need, or any other nonsense that is typical of other repair shops. The folks here have a lot of integrity. As a bonus, the staff here is also very friendly, making for a pleasant experience. I definitely recommend this place!

i tried plati many moons ago when my bmw was new, and i was tired of driving out to the dealer. i have to say i thought the owner was arrogant, and way too expensive. he really left me with a bad feeling when dealing with him. i now have no problem keeping my 20 plus year old bmw "healthy" at a place i am more that willing to drive the milage to, in santa monica.

I had heard such great things about Plati so I took my E-class there in hopes of avoiding the dealership overcharge and arrogance,I was having transmission problems, and I had my car checked by what I thought was a nice man, the owner, he showed me what needed repair, and took the car for a test drive, he gave me a written estimate of $5-THOUSAND DOLLARS! Which $3K was slated for a rebuilt transmision. That seemed a bit too high, I got a second opinion and took the car elsewhere where I paid only $1600 for all of the repairs, and more, It turns out that I did not need a new transmission, just a filter change, the old one was clogged and that was the problem. My car runs like new again!! This man at Plati wanted me to pay $3K for a new transmission when it only needed a new filter.The owner appeared to be a nice man but then again so does a wolf in sheeps clothing!!!!! Needless to say I will never return to Plati.

Plati has kept my little BMW in top shape for many years now. Not cheap, but not nearly as expensive as a dealer would be. All you have to do is visit Plati -- you'll see, one after another, beautiful old BMW and Mercedes. They drive me to work. Plati is the last thing between me and a Honda.
