Here's what some of our satisfied customers have to say about Avus Autosport:

08/06/2023

Hands down the very best shop anywhere. Their trio of technicians are fluent in both classic and modern Porsches and BMWs. Their quality of work and attention to detail are unparalleled. The entire team at Avus is passionate and it shows in their quality of work. We have serviced our two classic BMWs and our later Porsche 911 with them with exceptional results.

Sandro and his crew here at Avus Autosport have been the most accommodating and friendly staff I've had the pleasure of working with. Their work is also excellent and their customer service is unparalleled. They have taken great care of my car and I'll be visiting them again for any issue that I need fixed.

Best BMW mechanics in Southern California "10" Stars. Pricing, Skill and professionalism. I continue to bring both my Bimmers to Avus Autosport! Andrew has owned the business forever! I believe I have been a loyal client over 17 years. Master mechanic Rueben has been with him the whole time that I know if as well. Sandro operates the Front Desk and is personable, patient and will truly work with you. Herm & Ken are the other super qualified mechanics that know their stuff. I know of stories from Owners who have purchased BMWs from Pacific BMW (still under warranty) and have taken their cars to Avus. I was totally "Sold" on Avus after a competitor (in Eagle Rock) didn't even know how to keep my Shift Boot from cracking from the heat of the engine. After 2 Boots, I went to Avus and go figure a simple diaphram type gasket between the Boot and the heat from the engine was the problem (sorry "Joe"). Thank you Avus, Andrew and Rueben! 17 years later and I'm still with Avus. My 1997 Avus Blue 328i 5 Speed has never been taken care of so well. Andrew even secured my 2nd Bimmer, a 2005 Midnight Blue 330i ZHP Soft Top Convertible! Great Buy, awesome car and a real Looker. Yes this is a "Bimmer" shop. A real BMW enthusiast knows the difference between a "Bimmer" and a "Beamer"/(Beemer). Do you? If not take your BMW to Avus Autosport! See ya there!

My BMWs have only been serviced by Avus Autosport. For over 20 years, I have driven 4 different BMWs from Ventura County, to Avus, in Glendale, for all maintenance and servicing; including oil changes. They are the best. Honest, professional, and thoroughly knowledgeable about the (very limited number) of brands they service. They know what they are doing, and I wouldn?t go anywhere else.

Rubens and Sandro are really top notch. They completely embraced my project to prepare my Ferrari 308 GTS for sale which I brought to them at short notice and they did just that by giving the car a service of champions , so much so that when I saw the engine bay , I didn?t want to sell the car any more. I also discovered that Rubens works on Classic jags and Bentleys so I?ll be back with mine in the future for sure. Andrew was a pleasure to meet with his confident oversight and all in all I?m very happy to have found Avus. Long may the relationship continue!! Thank you Gents. Peter Mc G

Avus is a great shop!! I do a lot of my own work, oil changes, brakes, etc?but for bigger things like a clutch, Avus is the shop I trust to work on my M3?even if they are an hour away?it?s worth the drive. They are very professional, with customer service and the quality of work both top notch.

After many bad experiences at BMW dealers, I began taking my M6 and M5 to Avus and have had excellent experiences. I always leave feeling like they?ve been honest about the work that needs to be done, and the price?a contrast from my experience at the dealers. One glance at the cars in their garage at any given time tells you everything you need to know?new and vintage Porsches, Ferraris, BMWs that are clearly owned by people who baby their vehicles, and entrust Avus to do the same. Also, they?re right across from my favorite kabob place Mini Kabob! Win win!

I am a longtime satisfied customer of Avus. But , figured it was time to do another review. Most BMW owners- particularly of M series , but also for all BMW?s , soon realize you need to find a competent and Trustworthy independent service company. I found Avus many years ago and they take care of all my normal maintenance issues , and in a couple of abnormal ones - they clearly went above and beyond to solve the problem while clearly not taking advantage of the situation. Most recently, I waited too long before getting my smog check in my 2006 M-3. The catalytic converter needed the rather odd treatment of well over one hour of very defined driving to be reset for the test. They did that in conjunction with some sensor work on emergency notice and basically heavily discounted the driving time. Just one example of their professionalism. PS An added benefit that ? MiniKabob? , a NYT best LA restaurant is across the street

I took my Porsche in for service. Sandro was super nice when I first called in and, although they did my service, they were honest and recommended I take my car back to the dealer for a couple of things since it's still under warranty. They had my car ready on time and the place is cute too! I would definitely recommend them!

Recently bought an e90 328i and was told by the indy shop that did my PPI and the BMW dealership that I needed a new oil pan gasket, which is not a cheap job. Came into avus expecting to pay around $1,500 to get that fixed, but they found that it was simply the cover cap for my oil filter housing that went bad, which made it a significantly cheaper fix. A lot of other shops would've just replaced what I thought was wrong with the car and charged me full price to change a part that was already in working order, but not Avus. They checked high and low on the car to see where the issue was actually happening. Shout out to Sandro and the boys for taking care of my car and keeping it running like butter! This will be the only shop I allow to touch my car from now on. 5 stars.

I have been in this business 47 years...Started as a tech at the dealer then made parts my specialty for some notable corporations. There is millions of people that try to make this complex world of automobiles a specialty. We live in a very highly technical world that frankly leaves the majority of shops and dealers asking why or how?, and not repairing the vehicle properly. In 47 years, I would make Avus Autosport the absolute top repair facility anywhere. Yes, I take my Porsche there..oh yes. They are the only place I will go. And I have sad stories from other shops I leave behind. Do you want to smile when you drive your luxury car, then do yourself a favor...go to Avus and have peace of mind.

My MINI Cooper was running fine but when I took it in to a local MINI dealer for regular maintenance they told me I needed major repairs (quoted me $3k). Brought it to Avus for a second opinion after reading positive reviews and found out no repairs were needed! The service manager, Amir, treated me with respect and honesty which seems to be sorely lacking in this this industry. I love my car and hope the folks at Avus can help me enjoy it for many more years to come. Thanks again!

When it comes to being treated well, bring your BMW to the guys at Avus. They have been taking care of my car for over 10 years and it runs as well as the day I bought it (over 200K miles). Avus is the absolute best. Whether it is getting ready for a track day or getting a regular oil change, the Avus team is always friendly, attentive and provide fast service. I won't let anyone else work on the car. I feel a part of the Avus family and so will you.

First of all two words, CUSTOMER SERVICE!! The first time I brought my car to them I spoke with Andrew right when they were closing. Not only did he keep the shop open and wait for me, he even offered to come to where I was if needed. I got a call from him early the next day explaining what was going on and they had my M3 back to me that night in better condition than when I bought it! Every other time I've brought the car in they have gone above and beyond to make sure everything is right. I couldn't recommend them more. Amir will make sure you know exactly what's going and how long everything will take and the techs usually have it done sooner. If you care about your vehicle then don't take it anywhere else.

Wow, what a company. on less than 24 hours notice, they agree to review a local car for me to buy and save me a ton of time and trouble by letting me know that there is no way I should buy the car I was "sold" on purchasing long distance. Great service companies are hard..no..IMPOSSIBLE to find. These guys are good! Now I really believe all of the positive messages. Dan from Naples Florida

Well, I now live in San Diego and have moved back to my hometown since my last review of January 2011. I recently had to say goodbye to my old 2001 BMW 330 due to a freak accident while visiting Colorado. My car saved my life even though I hit an elk going 60mph at night in minus 2 degrees. The amazing part of this story is that I was able to continue my drive another two hours. I ended up driving the car back to San Diego but unfortunately the insurance declared the car a total loss. It was a sad ended to a car that I had since 2001... Anyway, I found a replacement 2004 BMW 330 ZHP edition in San Diego. Before purchasing the car I had a local tech at a BMW dealership perform a pre-purchase inspection of the car. He found a laundry list of parts that needed immediate attention such as replacing the seals in the differential that was leaking. He informed me that the oil filter housing was leaking and the gasket needed to be replaced. Also the cyclone oil separator needed to be replaced with all of the various hoses. I was told that the control arm bushing needed to be replaced as well as both control arms. The long story is that with parts and labor I was looking at well over $6,000 dollars. Now I as able to get the car at a very low price but still had to factor in the necessary repairs. I ended up purchasing the car and decided to make an appointment with Avus once again as I had in the past. To me it's worth the drive to Avus to have the experts inspect my new car. During the drive I was hoping that it was the typical dealership trying to up-sell me a bunch of service and parts that were not needed. When I arrived they were waiting for me and took the car immediately and put it up on the rack. After spending some time looking at it, Andrew showed me what was wrong with the car and what repairs needed immediate attention. Both Andrew and Amir knew that I made the drive from San Diego and that any repairs would have to be completed the same day. As it turns out, more than half of the repairs that the dealership said needed to be done were not needed at all. The control arm bushing/arms were fine. The oil separator did not need to be replaced, just one hose and the oil filter housing was not leaking at all. Again, it was just another hose that needed to be replaced. With this good news I decided to have piece of mind and have a full Inspection II service along with the differential repair. Andrew had two of his techs working at various times together to make sure all of the work would be completed for me. All of the parts needed to repair my car including rebuilding the cooling system where on the shelf at his shop. He even had a replacement shift knob that was needed! Here's the best news, it all came together and and my out the door price was no where close to the $6,000 quote from the dealership. I'm writing this review after two weeks of driving the car and everything is great with no issues! Whether you live a mile or two from Avus or over an hour or more away, it is worth the drive to have the crew at Avus service your car. The staff at Avus spends the time to thoroughly explain any issues and recommend which repairs are necessary and which ones can be postponed. If you are looking for the best quality BMW service at fair prices, you owe it to yourself to give Avus Autosport a try! Jeff L.
