Quality Service & Work. I took my1979 450 SL convertible to them when I had an unexpected problem. They resolved it quickly, identified a second issue that was an even more serious problem and fixed both on estimates. I'm returning for even more work as I'm most pleased with everything about them. If you have a German car old, new or in-between you should check them out, it’s worth it. Google Maps:

I called German Car Specialists a month or two after the dealer quoted me $2300 for the 108k service (timing belt) and ~$2000 for a new catalytic converter on my 2003 Audi A4. Despite always doing regular oil changes and scheduled maintenance, I decided I was willing to wait just a little while longer given the cost. At this point, I had ~109000k miles on my car. I didn't leave a message but Tony still called me back on his day off. As usual, his rates were much better than the dealer but I told him I still might wait a few weeks - i.e. I had a busy schedule, blah, blah, blah. He explained to me the importance of the timing belt, what could happen if it snapped (total my engine) and how this service is now done at 75000k miles. Not realizing this prior, I made an appointment for that Monday and crossed my fingers I would make it there. On the way back to pick up my car, the shuttle driver said oh, you're the one everyone is referring to as the lucky car . Then Tony showed me a very large gap in the timing belt where eight or so teeth were missing and how it all works. And oh how lucky I was….I had no idea until that moment. By chance, if I had stopped/started my car and the stripped belt portion landed just so - bye-bye engine. A HUGE thanks to Tony (and his team) for saving my engine and my wallet! Without his pro-active follow up and extra care in explaining everything to me, I can confidently say my bill would have been three to four times higher than what I was trying to avoid. I will take my Audi to German Car Specialists from now on….no exceptions!

These guys are worth the money (cheaper than the dealer normally), quick service and - best of all. They have a shuttle service to get you where you need to go.

TLast week I brought my car in be serviced. The team over at German Cars kept me informed, the prices were good (very nice considering the economy), and they were quick! Thanks again guys!

I just moved to the Seattle area and was worried about finding somewhere reliable and trustworthy to take my 1994 BMW 525i for repairs. I saw an ad for German Car Specialists and decided to take a chance. I'm so glad I did it. Mack has been so helpful. He listens to me and clearly explains the necessary repair and the reason for the repair. Being a woman who knows nothing about auto repairs, this means the world to me. I also appreciate that everyone at German Car Specialist is courteous and professional.

One the challenging parts of owning a luxury is the cost of maintenance and repair once your dealer warranty is up. I went to German Car Specialist based on a suggestion from a friend and I've been there ever since. Tony, Mack, and the guys are thorough and not only do the fix your car at a reasonable price (far less than the dealer or other places I looked), they can also tell you things that you may want to think about and plan for down the line.\

I took my BMW 325i 2004 to German Car Specialists to get an oil change after receiving their 10% off parts and labor coupon on my car. I was informed of future services that I will have to get and was very surprised to hear on how much lower their prices are than the dealers. I will be going back to GCS to get my next service done. Pros: Knowledgeable and Friendly Cons: Not open on the weekends

I have a BMW 325CI 2002. I kept on adding oil to the engine for two years. So i took my car to German Car Specialist in Factoria. They told me that to check out the oil consumption would cost between $65-85 to check out. So Mark the service advisor gave me a call in a couple hours and told me that i needed a crank case pressure regulating valve. I’ve had that issue for two years and after taking my car to the local dealer. Thanks to German Cars my car is fixed now! =) Pros: fast service and helpful Cons: shuttle only goes till 3 pm

I took my 2002 Audi in for a check. They talked me into inspecting the timing belt. I reluctantly agreed as I had had that done a few months prior and was told it was okay. The owner then called me with an estimate to replace the timing belt & other parts. I was skeptical, didn't want to do all that. He invited me to come in and see my car and the old belt. I did. It was very cracked all around the inside and he explained everything to me, answering all my questions. I had the work done and I am so glad I did! If that belt had broken, my engine could have been destroyed! As a woman, I am so leery of car repair shops and being treated condescendingly. This experience was refreshing as I was treated courteously from setting up my appointment, shuttle ride, to the completion of the service. In addition, I checked around and the rate was much lower than others. Their Audi guy is very experienced as well. He took time to help explain things to me and was the one who insisted on getting the belt off so it could be inspected (damage missed by the other shop), very professional. Anyway, I recommend this shop to anyone! They know their stuff. Pros: Coveniently located for Eastside people, excellent service! Cons: Can't think of anything here...
