Wonderful – There is nothing like having a 10 year old car with 140k miles that drives like it just left the lot. :)
I come here for my 60 day oil changes (that's 5k miles in 60 days) and they get me in and out quickly, and early too. There's a sitting room (with Grandma's old comfy couch) and WiFi if you need it for surfing or working. I've brought my own parts in too before which is great considering the wonders of the interwebs and pricing.
Berkeley Motor Works knows their stuff! – Berkeley Motor Works handles repairs in a very timely fashion. They are able to communicate in a layman's sense to explain what's going on with your call. They make recommendations and suggestions and lay out different options to their customers.
The staff is warm and professional. The facility is clean, including the bathroom which is very important to anyone. The owner is very conscientious of his customers and their vehicles. He keeps himself on the pulse of things specifically to help him out in the work he does. He's a very nice and knowledgeable guy.
Best in Town – I've been dealing with Berkeley Motor Works for 20 some odd years now, and I've had no problems with them at all. I have two cars that I've been bringing to them, and I've had nothing but good things every time I've brought a car in to them. They've always been forthcoming about what needed to be done and how much it was going to cost. They're also a lot cheaper than going to the dealer, and I've never had a problem with the work either. I've never had to bring it back in a second time after going in. Berkeley Motor Works goes out of their way to make sure things work, sometimes not even charging me for it.
They've earned my loyalty! – These guys are straight forward, do the work fast, and do a great job. They've earned my loyalty.
Friendly and helpful. – I've been going to Berkeley Motor Works for 6 years, since my car was a year old and I decided the "free" BMW service was not sufficient. Mike knows BMW's inside and out and he and his staff are friendly and helpful. If you want a ride to BART, they'll take you. If you need the car done by 3, they'll do it. It is so nice these days to talk to someone who knows cars and knows the work being done on your car, rather than someone who is two people removed from a mechanic. Mike is good at advising you of needed repairs and repairs that can wait. I've never had any problem with either work done on my car or on any bill. If I did, I'm sure Mike would address it.
I have had two interactions with this shop. The first time I had the 328 towed to another shop on the recommendation of AAA. That shop called me in the morning and said that they do not work on BMW's! They did recommend Mike at Berkeley Motor Works. Mike and Paula are both friendly, knowledgeable and experts on BMW's! I got a great deal on my repair. These are great people who will take good care of you and your car!
I come here all the time – These guys have great customer service. are very knowledgeable, fair, upfront with recommendation. I will come back for future work, & recommend to others as I am doing now. Thanks guys
Check it out. – Mike Scwharzbart's shop advised on my original BMW acquisition at Weatherford, handling follow up inspection and subsequent required maintenance. This shop has superb customer service, extremely knowledgeable mechanics and the work performed is always top tier coupled with timely and direct communication/ recommendations thru the diagnosis process. As auto makers design vehicles with increasing sophisticated technology, Mike is constantly on the go researching latest repair data for his customers. I would not consider taking my car anywhere else.
Service was timely! – I took my 1988 BMW 325i for service the other day. I had my brakes done, they changed out a valve and they replaced my battery. The service was timely, the staff is friendly and they even washed the dang car!
