Where to begin with my latest experience at German Auto Sport? I have to say as with all business and career models that rely person to person interaction, relationship is key. Not every BMW shop in the Bay can say they have performed an auto to manual swap on an E30 325ix, German Auto Sport can, and they have done so professionally. Trusting a shop to perform a transmission conversion is a big step. My E30 had come to a point where the slush box was practically gone. Considering the appreciating value of these cars, I talked to Chris to see what options we had for the ix. Since this isn't a daily driver we had time to map out a plan...I think this is key for drivers who are working on "projects." In the end I provided the transmission and transfer case, GAS took care of the rest and threw in some "goodies," yeah, we know each other a few years now. They paid attention to every detail and made sure the work was representative of their shop but not just that, this car was taken care of as if it was their own. Of course, this is all backed by their unbeatable warranty but more than that, I value Chris and his teams' friendship and honesty. While the ix was in the shop our family's e46 touring developed a misfire and we towed it in. The team went above and beyond to point me in the right direction without selling me a service. I mention this because most of the time, dealing with a shop can be frustrating if everything is a sales pitch. In my multiple visits to GAS I see Chris and Yar welcoming customers for a brief quote or advice, scanning or resetting codes at no charge...even listening to rambling customers as they go on and on and on.... These guys understand customer service and are invested in building and maintaining not just BMW's but positive relationships with their customers. I think if I could offer any advice to those considering GAS for service it would be: 1) be clear about your needs and share as much as you can about your vehicle's history, 2) understand your car isn't the only car being serviced, some services will require more time so be mindful reasonable in your expectations, being rude gets you nowhere 3) your car was designed to work with quality parts so no, the quote may not be as low as the auto zone guy suggested, 4) your car is a reflection of you so if you've driven it carelessly and maintained it poorly it will come back to bite you, and lastly 5) learn to work on your car and these guys will be happy to share knowledge so don't be afraid to ask!

If quality and fairness and good prices are what you were looking for, look no further than this shop. I cannot say enough about the people and the service that I get here. They are 100% fair. They are also very concerned about your well-being and safety with your car. Unlike other shops who tack on time or extra jobs so that they can make money, this shop really talks to you and let you know exactly what you need to do.

G.A.S was recommended to me by a friends who's crazy about cars so I knew that coming from him, this place had to be good. I got to the shop and was greeted by Yar. I popped the hood open and he knew exactly what the issue was in a matter of seconds. As we continued talking, I could tell this guy truly knew what he was talking about. My vehicle was leaking oil all over the place and after several cans of part cleaner, the guys were able to not only address the issue but clean all affected parts. Yar asked that I bring the car once a month over the next couple of months to inspect it to ensure that everything's okay which tells me that these guys do care about their customers. In short, if you're looking for professional, knowledgeable and fair mechanic shop, this is the place to go! Keep up the good work guys!
