I have an '06 Audi A3 and have always had it serviced at the dealer...til now. My car was ready for the 75K service...the dealer was tied up and couldn't get me in for a couple of weeks. I had always meant to look into German Auto Specialists but for whatever reason I'd just stayed with what was familiar. So I called. They could get me in the next day and the price was a bunch less! The result of my visit is that they are now my car's 'servicer' for the rest of its life! They're really nice people. They really know what they're doing. They have really good prices. That's a lot of 'reallys' but they deserve each one plus more. There's a relaxed atmosphere there too. The dealer has more of a frantic feeling and there is a sort of 'nervousness' about getting you to give them '5 stars' or 'fantastically outstanding' or whatever it is on the manufacturer's followup. I guess that's part of the price of being a franchise. So I was very impressed. They both do quality work but for me, from now on, I'll be a dedicated customer of the relaxed, professional, comfortably priced services of German Car Specialists. Besides, I want to see Tony's Army helmet again...that, by itself, is worth a visit.
