Brad and Sven are always so helpful and approachable, which I found to be such a pleasant surprise given experience elsewhere. They have given me excellent service when looking after my e39 BMW 5 Series and W210 Mercedes-Benz E-Class. I would recommend their business to any European car owner. Thanks guys.

I recently booked my vehicle in at German Service Shop due to a vibration coming from the brakes. Sven was professional and provided me with an outstanding service. Sven and his team diagnosed the issue quickly and gave me a cost effective solution. I highly recommend German Service Shop and will be using them again Lu

These guys were great in helping me out installing my side mirror and figuring out the “mystery” wire that Volkswagen were unable to figure out twiddling their thumbs for 30 minutes. Although German Service Shop were busy and no longer taking appointments they took the time to look and quickly fix the issue within minutes at no charge for the easy fix. Will definitely revisit for a future service or any VW related issues!

Fantastic customer care and service. Brad and the team were polite and professional. Nothing is too difficult for them. I always use German Service Shop for any works needed on my BMW as I know I recieve honest feedback and they will only do work that is required at a fair price. I would recommend. 5 stars.

“Brad, The car was terrific to drive this morning! Many thanks for the home delivery and the champagne for Helen. Looking forward to many more days of fine driving. A very rewarding service experience!”


“Friendly and professional service by guys who really know what they are talking about. They really do a great job, are well priced and I was surprised how fast they got the job done. Been there for servicing and repairs and I don’t think I’d take my Beamer anywhere else now.”
