I own three cars, a Mercedes S550, a Porsche 911, and a BMW M6. I take all of my cars to Gi Motorsports over on Santa Monica Blvd. near the 405 freeway for any service I might need. It doesn't matter how busy they are, they always see me

When you have a Bentley, your options are limited when it comes to a great service/repair shop. I have been going to GI Motors for all then services that my car need and I couldn't be Happier with the result and their services, and of course their prices are so great compare to all the luxury car services. You end up with the luxury services but you pay the regular price.

They are professional and very helpful. I am very careful who works on my Porsche 996 and Cayenne and like to see the work and parts, etc. Frank has worked there for many years and has the experience and love for the cars. Adam is also very knowledgable and friendly. Prices are more than fair and service A+.

Best services.
Excellent service.My car did not pass the smog test. After visiting few local mechanics with no success on passing the smog test a friend of mine recommended International Auto Specialist. At the shop the problem with emission control was corrected and fixed in the couple of hours.

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. They 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.

After bringing my Porsche Turbo to the dealer and then anouther shop and getting conflicting stories and being charged a grip of money not to have anything fixed I found German Independent, thank god! They where by far the most polite, pleasent, honest shop I have ever dealt with. Not only did they figure out what was really wrong with my car and fixed it the right way. They are also able to do some of the upgrades I have wanted to have done but never found a place a felt confortable doing it. AMber the owner and her staff are awesome. Thanks !!!

After days of my calling I was told the DME module was bad. I would have to wait until Monday's office hours, he said, as it was the weekend, but I found that one is $25 to $30 and of course labor. I didn't mind the wait so far or waiting more as I believe it is worth getting the right answer and hey, you can't hold Sunday against them, right? I call Monday- it is now both crankshaft sensors AND the worst part: the entire ECU computer needs replacing. Really? Why, I ask. I got a bunch of half truths about how the computer works with the sensors and they damage each other if bad. I am told the sensors are $195 each and the computer is $2,850! I call another shop and he verifies that true, but this is the top list price new. Also, they bet the diagnosis is wrong and say to get the car. I call and say that I cannot stick, after labor, over three grand into a brand new computer for a 27 year old car and will pay for all I signed for and pick it up. The mechanic from the weekend was the owner, I find, who says he can get a computer for $1000 in the next sentence. The price dropped a grand and a half just like that to keep me from going. He says they neglected to offer me a rebuilt one. I say I just want to settle my bill and he says no, I absolutely must do this for the car to run! I say I will just store it and have another car anyway and want to pay my bill. He says I will also pay him for FOUR DAYS STORAGE then. I go there and the salesman says no, we can't legally charge for storage since WE didn't get around or quote you until now but the owner tries it. He undid the fees/storage on the work order and I paid for the diagnostic time. I get a copy that says "balance due". I point out that this shows I am taking the car but still OWE money, not that I paid. It should say "balance due: $0.00" . Then I get one that says "receipt" and zero due, but I must sign the old work order from days ago that still says work WILL be done. I point out how this is wrong too. Eventually, a truck transports my car to the other shop, which replaces just the sensors (at much less) and amazingly it turns out the computer is just fine! Nothing was wrong with it. The whole deal was just $300 after labor and runs like a top. I am sure high end customers that just hand over a credit card believe they do exceptional work, they probably do, but how many KNOW what they DIDN'T need and paid for it?

I work at a car place http://zautos.com and I think they are good
I saw the story about a 928 but this is not the average car. Everything I have seen about them is that they are a nightmare to work on and the costs are unreal..6000 for a tranny
I don't think they should be blamed

I got my Audi serviced and bodywork done at German Independent. To my surprise there was a friendly sophisticated staff and the owner was a lovely women named Amber who was extremely informed, I guess that's the business but I wouldn't expect it. They got the work done in a fraction of the time and price that I was quoted other places. I cant say enough about this place, clean, nice people, good service they seem to really care about there customers.

If you have a 928, do NOT go there. They have NO experience with that car, no matter what they may say. It took them a week to diagnose the problem, took the car all apart, charged one thousand dollars, and finally found a bad resister !

I've been taking my Porsche and Audi to Rene for years now, and he has always provided top notch service. The quality of the work has always reached my high expectations. I had them repaint the bumper on my Porsche and the color matched PERFECTLY! That's not an easy thing to do with some of these metallic colors, and the prices are extremely competitive. They even gave me a ride home when I couldn't find one. Thanks Rene!

Beware. If you love rude customer service (some of the staff there definitely has an attitude) and overpaying then by all means take your car here.

I took my Audi A4 to German Independent to look at a problem. When I got an estimate (which was nearly double what another shop wanted), I decided to get the repair done elsewhere. I was forced to pay $150 as inspection fee to get possession of my car. I was not informed in advance nor did I ever consent to this fee. If I had been informed in advance, I would have gone elsewhere.

I don't know what people here think, but I think it is sneaky to charge a fee without clearly informing a customer about it in advance, and then refusing to give possession of the vehicle crosses all limits of decency. Renee was all sugar and honey when I dropped off the car, but his demeanor changed dramatically when I asked him for a refund of the inspection fee, and he just cut the phone.

And all this after I have spent more than 3 grand getting work at this place over the last 4 years. If this is how Renee treats existing customers, draw your own conclusions. There are cheaper places all around if you shop around. Take my advice and spare yourself some frustration and hard earned dollars by taking your business elsewhere.

I recently and an incident in a parking lot with a woman on a cell phone backing out of a spot driving a Ford Explosion.I saw her backing into me hit me and kept going.I guess the conversation she was having was more important than my little Porsche. I went and had 3 estimates before going to German independent. Amber, one of the owners helped me.She was very knowledgeable in Porsches and the quote I've gotten was very reasonable. I got my car back in less than a week, washed and cleaned. Thanks guys great job.I will be coming back for service on my baby.

I have used these guys for work on the executives cars at my work. We're talking a Porsche GT2 and various new BMW's. The work is always impeccable and prompt.

The repair work on my 64 Chevelle is what put them into the stratosphere for me. I dented the fender, and they fixed and matched the paint so well I can hardly believe my eyes.

These guys can do it all, and Leo is an artist with a hammer and spray gun!!!

The mechanical service is for the most part very good & some very nice people (great guy named Matt? who did an excellent repair!) BUT

the owner (I think it's him-only heard his voice over phone) is a bit of a jerk-making the shop a stressful & difficult place to deal with.

I picked up my car after dropping it off for 10 days total to do repairs. I had extended it from 5 to 7 days because I was out of town (no problem) but was told rudely that the extra extension was a huge hassle because they had no space. Fine by me-but perhaps they could have mentioned this when I dropped it off? I had thought 7-10 days was pretty reasonable & didn't expect them to fix it so fast...

Picked the car up & it had to be jump started-battery had died because they left it unlocked, since it had to be moved so much. The insinuation was this was my fault because I was inconsiderate enough to burden them with the car for so long.

Car battery died 2 weeks later on a Saturday & I needed emergency road service to resuscitate it. When I called the owner (Renee I think??), the nasty response was he had no time to fix it that day, it would be $100 to charge it, & of course it wasn't their fault the battery died, they don't drive customer cars! When I politely explained what happened, telling him about the jump start, he virtually hung up on me.

My VW will continue to break down, but I have to believe there are more polite, equally skilled mechanics that can assist me!?

UPDATE: After 2 emergency repair jump starts & 1 charge, AAA told me the battery was dead & they replaced it. I'm not seeking a reimbursement because it was under warranty & this happened on a weekend, but still quite a hassle...

You can't get better service than this. I brought in my Mercedes to have some body work done and a little over a week later it came back pristine and like new!
The service was friendly all around, Rene was great! He even waved my oil change to compensate for a small hiccup that occurred.
110% satisfied!

These guys are that good. Plain and simple. It's as if the BMW Gods sent an angel (Rene, the Owner) down from heaven on a holy mechanic mission. It is for this reason that they were given the CitySearch Award for Best Mechanic.

I have been going to these guys for almost 2 years now to have my 98' BMW 740IL serviced and have never been disappointed. I have had quotes from the dealerships that were more than twice what they asked. They even changed my oil for free once! They always show you the parts they replaced and on occasion don't charge for all the small parts or services. They didn't charge me for a new fan belt to replace the cracked one I had been putting off repairing for too long. I hadn't even asked them to repair it, they just did it because it needed to be done. Granted, they know me well and I have brought them a few new clients but still... mechanics are supposed to be evil.

My Dad brings his 2006 Mercedes E350 for non-warranty service and his girlfriend now brings her 97 BMW 325i for her service too.

They have only kept my car overnight one time and that was because I brought it at the end of the day. If you bring your car in before noon they are usually able to have it back by 6 pm or 7 pm the same day. They really only work on German cars but I have noticed them working on a few domestic classics.

Cons: DID NOT SEE ANY

Lets keep it simple folks. German Independent. If your car is German, they will be pleased to see you. Rene is great. He's the owner and a really nice guy. He has helped me out a bunch of times for next to nothing on small things.
The fact of the matter is all these guys are pretty much straight forward. They will tell you what is wrong and give you a fair price. When I first got to LA I'd take my car to Santa Monica volkswagen. They overcharge the craps outta me and are then relentless is sending you emails and letters telling you to come back. for a company that makes, repairs and sells VW, they have consistently mess up my car or forgot to put certain things back. After three months I found german Independent and that is where I take my VW now. there work is consistent and the price is fair.

If you want to keep your GERMAN car in good running health take it here. If you would like to have your car messed with by VW of santa monica take it there. They will screw it up enough that you will have to buy another car in a few years.

I needed new brakes and rotors for my Range Rover. The dealer (Hornburg) quoted me $1,600!! So I decided to shop around. Not only did German Independent quote me 60% LESS than the dealer, but they had my car ready the same day!!! And they even delivered the car to me!! Granted, one of the partners lives very close to me, but still, that's great customer service!! They are honest, efficient, quick, and friendly!! I would definitely recommend German Independent to anyone! And, to top it all off, I don't even own a German car! But they were happy to order the parts I needed from Land Rover, and they fixed my car immediately! Ask for Matt- he was a great help!

Brought my Audi into German Independent for a service and some body work. What a really nice experience! It was less then I had been quoted some were else and they did a great job. They even stayed late so that I could get my car before the holiday. The shop and the workers had a really great vibe. Thanks guys!

Pros: It was an A+ for me

Brought my car in for mechanical service and some body work. This was the best experience I have ever had getting my car fixed, ever! They were able to do everything at one place. The quote they gave me was right on and no hidden fees which I always have found at the dealerships. I feel like theses guys and girls really care about what they are doing. They have a customer for life! Thanks!

I've been going to German Independent for a few years and in the beginning they were great. I've noticed over the years they have gotten very busy and spend less time on your car and less time doing a good job. I had some major work done and when I got the bill I noticed there were things they charged me for that I did not authorize - to boot they never even fixed the problem I came in for!! Now they refuse to give me my money back. Please do yourself a favor and find an honest mechanic and stay away from these cheaters!

German Independent is really a God-send to anyone with a German vehicle in the LA area. Sure we love our German cars for their engineering and design but we all know how expensive (and mysterious) maintenance and repairs can be. GI tells you exactly what is wrong with your car and why. They don't just tell you that "yadayadyada" is broken and you better fix it. They take the time to show you what is wrong with your car, what it all means, and to top it off they give you an unbelievably fair price. The dealer wanted $600 more for the SAME job, using the SAME parts and they did it in 1 1/2 hours! The dealer would have kept it over night.

Bottom line...go here. You will not be disappointed or feel ripped off. How refreshing!

Brought my S550 for service. German Independent was about $250. less then the dealer and I my car was completed by the end of the day. The staff was super friendly. This was a suprisely pleasent experience. They are even able to get the rims I have been looking for! Would recommend this shop to any one.

I saw the positive reviews on citysearch and went to them to cosmetically fix my 2006 BMW Convertible before returning my lease and I can only confim the postive feedback. They work fast, give you an exact estimates in writing, are very responsive and their work is good old German quality! They have very long opening hours which is great and my car did look like new when I picked it up. I am very happy to have found them and will return with my next German car. Thanks guys!

+ exellent work
+ fast and reliable
+ great communication and long opening hours
+ nice guys

Fixing a BMW is never cheap but they did my repairs for less than the dealer without any loss of quality. I have had them fix multiple things over the year and even tell me when something wasn't cost effective to fix which is a nice change from mechanics telling you that you need stuff that isn't necessary.

Went for some minor work. Picked up car after everyone vacated on a Saturday - they don't joke about leaving at noon on Saturdays!
My car was not aligned (should have been part of the service) and my hood was left slightly open. I didn't notice this until I got home-glad I didn't take the freeway! When I lifted the hood to close it I noticed a rag was in there on top of the engine cover. They had called me to tell me the car was done, its obvious that it wasn't finished - not aligned, rag in the engine...
Not sure if this just a oversight by a busy shop or if they are just in the business of shuffling cars through to make more money.

I took my '02 Boxster to G.I. in July to do a post-purchase inspection. After purchasing the vehicle, I noticed a vibration in the steering wheel at 75 mph, and the ABS indicator light came on. I told G.I. about these issues. They had the car for 3 hours. I came back and they said nothing was wrong with the vehicle, that it was "clean." And the ABS light? And the vibration? They said nothing was wrong with it, but that I had a leak at the valve cover gasket, which they would fix for some exorbitant price. They didn't offer to do anything else. I paid for the inspection and left. Well, come to find that the balance and alignment were off. And, according to someone who has been working on Porsches for a very long time said, the Boxster doesn't have a valve cover gasket, but silicone, which will leak over time because the gasoline slowly breaks down the silicone. Maybe this is just semantics, but I don't feel that G.I was very up front with me about the car, and I'm not confident they know much about Porsches, or at least Boxsters. If you've got a Boxster, go some place else.

I have a BMW 330i that was leajing oil from the oil pan gasket. Rene and his team put the car on lift and figured out within half an hour that not just the pan gasket was leaking, but another part as well. In order to do the job 100% correct they recommended to make that repair as well. They called me and discussed all the details with me and I always knew that they are honest and straight forward with their recommendations. Many mechanics try to take advantage of the situation, not so Rene and his team. Peace of mind all the way! Plus Rene and his guys are absolutely nice guys who know their stuff inside and out! The BEST BMW and German car service in L.A. by far. I highly recommend you see Rene and his team!

Just picked up my Cayman S. Wow! Awesome job!
There was some front end body damage that needed roughly a week to fix. I usually go to the Porsche Dealer but not anymore. They had the rental car company literally waiting to pick me up, they are basically 2/3rd's the price of a dealer and their service is warm, personable, efficient and quick. They called me a day before their ETA. When I picked up the car the quality of workmanship was better than I expected it. to be. Awesome job Rene and Matt. See you soon...No scratch that, hopefully not. Anyway from now on bringing all my cars and highly recommending them to all. Cheers!

Time came for routine maintenance on my 2005 German Automobile.

A different garage's mechanics hadn't reset the diagnostic computer

so several indicator lights remained lit. Maintenance seemed a good

time to have those checked as well.

During the phone call making the appointment Rene spoke in a

professional and friendly manner.

Arriving first thing the next day to the busy garage good attitudes

remained consistent.

Having processed the car into the garage's possession, I returned

to my place of work.

Two hours later, Rene called in a patient voice to inform me that

unfortunately my transmission had malfunctioned requiring new,

very expensive parts - so expensive garaging or selling the car

seemed wise. I resigned my self to pick up the car. Rene informed

me of his decision not to charge for the diagnostic work.

Despite the bad luck it was refreshing German Independent did

not go ahead and do the minor work on a car that might be

inoperable.

Ten minutes later, on my way out the door Rene called. Through

his contacts he managed to arrange to have the car repaired

FOR FREE at a different, more specialized shop.

Without reservations German Independent will be my first choice

for future automotive work and I'd strongly recommend the garage

on the merits of their good judgment.

I called in the morning for getting my Cayenne serviced and brake pads changed. Dropped it at 4 pm. Since I was a first time customer I was little doubtful when Rene told me I could pick up the car at 9 pm same day.
In addition to the service I got a fancy Blutooth hands free system installed. Showed up at 9. Everything was done and working. Great service. Sharp, precise, reliable and extremly friendly. Needless to say where my car will be serviced in future.

I've been taking my Audi to him for the last 6 years and his service has always been impeccable. He and his team are honest, highly skilled and very thorough. I have recommended him to all of my friends and they all have had the same experience as well. He has even offered equipment and consultation for a commercial shoot for me; useful in this town and way beyond the normal call of duty.

If you want an honest, skilled and extremely personable mechanic, you can't go wrong with Rene & German Independent.

These guys are awesome! First of all, they give very good prices (will save you thousands next to the dealer). Second, the quality of work is excellent (significantly better than German dealer) They are always quick (as in, big jobs done the same day or next day), communicate well, and as other reviews have mentioned, have a passion and knowledge of cars. Body, Engine, etc. If you are a car snob, or just someone who wants quality care on your car, this seems like the best place to go in LA. Highly Recommended.

I've been to a lot of different places and Rene and his team at German Independent are the best. More important than their skill is their honesty. They won't rip you off and they won't sell you things that you don't need. Their prices are very reasonable.

I think the reason that they are so great is that they love their jobs. Their place is all about the car. They truly want ot make german car ownership and service a great experience. they care about the customer and they always follow through. For example, I dropped my car off one day at 630 pm and Rene promised that he would look over the car and give me an estimate. He called me after hours (around 830pm) to discuss my car and get authorization from me to proceed so that they could start work on it first thing in the morning.

In summary, they are great people, they do great work, and I highly recommend them to everyone. I won't bring my BMWs to anyone else.

This is a review for all, but mainly women consumers.

I recently purchased a used BMW M3 '02. Though it's used, it's new to me and wanted to get an overview of the whole vehicle....what it needed and what I could wait on (it had 68k miles). So I was looking for a shop I could start a good relationship.

Unfortunately, I was rushed into finding a shop due to a flat tire- while getting towed to repair the tire, the AAA guy got the tow hitch stuck. So I needed to find an honest BMW mechanic quick.
I did a review search for BMW repair shops and found good reviews on German Independent. Still skeptical, I took it to Rene and his team. I was so relieve to find how nice everyone is there, and how they were willing to take a look at the tow hitch problem quickly...removed it and didn't charge me. So I went back for the overview the next week.

I had the following work done- oil service, gear box leak repaired, front lic. plate kit mounted, blinker replaced.
They emailed me an estimate before starting the work for my approval and any questions I had. Matt told me what was needed, what I could wait on, and was told the '02 vehicle was in pretty good condition.

They are honest, if you ask what they did and why your car sounded a certain way they will go over it with you without the macho sarcasm or "don't worry about it little lady, just pay up & be on your way" attitude.

Rene & his staff are confident, and enjoy cars. More importantly they care about cars, that they run the way they are meant to...at their best. These guys also care about their customers and know word of mouth goes a long way. Good business experience equals more business.

No, I don't know any of these guys....they are not my friends...nor am I getting paid to write this. I just know many women get taken advantage of with vehicle repairs. Also, people are quick to write complaints, but rarely praises when praises due.

Thank you Rene, Matt, and the rest of the staff!

Renee and his team have always been fair, honest and reliable in the 4 years we have used them to fix our BMW. I referred a friend of mine there as well and she has been incredibly happy with the service and cost. Just the other day, as I was carpooling in my friend's BMW, my cup of juice fell out of the drink holder and short circuited the automatic window buttons. We freaked -- drove straight to Renee (this was on our way to work) and in less than 10 minutes he replaced the whole auto button system and charged so little, I was jumping for joy (as I thought this was about to be the most expensive car pool ride of my life!). Renee and his team are lifesavers!

I work for a celebrity and have been taking his family's Mercedes cars to German Independent for over two years. Rene and his team consistently offer us the best service, the fastest turnaround, and, most importantly, the MOST reasonable prices in town. Where a Mercedes dealership will quote over a thousand dollars and three working days for a repair, German Independent will get the job done for $300 and be finished in two hours. It's easy to feel taken advantage of when you're working under a famous name. Rene treats us like family, is discreet, and never squeezes us for extra dough. I myself have brought my Volkswagen to him on occasion and feel safe with their caliber of work and the prices they're quoting me. If they treat us this well, there's no way they won't treat everyone the same. I highly recommend German Independent for all they stand for- honesty, quality and speed. I would give them ten stars if I could.

My friend and I bought the same BMW within weeks of each other. When the warranty was up we both shuttered to think about the cost of keeping our cars repaired. Over the last two years we have had almost identical work done with one exception. Her car is worked on by an independent mechanic in Pasadena and I go to German Independent. Her repairs, with rare exception, are double my cost and she always has to leave her car up to three days. Mine is always repaired within a day. I know nothing about car mechanics so I am at the mercy of the repair shop. When I bring in my car they take the time to explain
what needs to be done, go over the cost and time it will take to complete the job. There is only one thing
that would improve the service. To move the shop to Hollywood where I live. Thanks GI.
