A Few Words from Our Customers

I gratefully found these guys via Yelp.

There’s another highly rated BMW mechanic around here I went to first but they are waaaaay too pricey. This place does excellent work at much more reasonable prices. Also, the entire staff is genuinely friendly and straightforward. I felt really good energy upon my first visit. Shout out to Yar and the entire staff. …I will most likely utilize G.A.S. as my primary mechanic for my 335d from now on. Cheers

This shop is the best

If you want your BMW taken care of. Chris and Yars and the Team are extremely knowledgeable and genuinely love what they do. They are also capable of educating you about your car if you are interested. German Autosport is the real deal. I take my car no where else when n the Bay Area.
