VERY knowledgeable on all German cars and honest, you won’t get ripped off! Cameron clearly explains what he’s going do and all of your options. He’s been in the business a long time and, after only one trip there, it was very obvious to me that he puts customer satisfaction at the top of the list. I will definitely return AND recommend him to anyone who asks.

Brought my 2006 911 Carrera in for some modifications and its first service under my ownership. I'm thrilled with the quality and honesty of their work, and Cameron is awesome to deal with. Great people, great shop. You definitely earned my business from now on!

I have been bringing my Mercedes to European Motorsports for at least 10 years! Cameron is trustworthy, friendly and professional! The mechanics are very through when inspecting my car and I have never been stranded because they overlooked something. I will continue to buy German cars because I have found a shop for life! I recommend European Motorsports to anyone with a German car!

Best BMW Repair shop in Vista hands down! European MotorSports are amazing at servicing all German-made cars. So highly recommend anyone to bring their Porsche, Benz, Audi, Mini Cooper, or Volkswagen to them for anything related to maintenance and repairs....

Incredible service at a reasonable price!I've been driving for over thirty years and been to many repair shops along the way and never have I been as satisfied as I am with European Motorsports. Honest people with a great service manager and mechanic.I usually don't care for service managers because they tend to oversell and not really know what they are talking about; European's Cameron Clayton definitely does not fit that mold. I had a big job that involved an engine and tranny drop on a new to me dream Porsche 964. I bought the car near Vista but live in NorCal and wanted the work done before I drove it home. European was recommended by the seller so I rolled the dice hoping for the best. Wow what a pleasant surprise- Cameron and I discussed the repairs which even involved powder coating out side their shop, special oils, welding...worked up an estimate and started the job. Now comes the good part- first I know 964s really well and what's involved with the requested repairs- when talking to Cameron I was surprised and impressed that he actually knew in great depth what was involved with the various repairs- that's exceptional (he has a 993 that he apparently has worked on). Second, this being a special and brand new car for me I was extremely interested in every step and would probably be considered a high maintenance customer. Cameron was a star in communicating with me- I requested and received pictures of the process almost daily. He was always responsive to my inquiry emails... I also talked with the mechanic, Phil, about his progress and thoughts about the condition of the car. How often can one actually talk to the mechanic on the phone?When all the work was completed the price was the same as the estimate (no surprises) and was way more reasonable than the shop rates up here in NorCal, I was also impressed with their rate for parts- not a huge mark up like I've seen in other places. It has been several months now since Phil did the work and I'm pleased to say that everything he repaired is really repaired/fixed. I've had no issues with the work done.I know this is a glowing review but my experience with European was so positive it warrants it. My only compliant is that they are not up here in NorCal.Thanks European!

I have had my "02 911 Turbo serviced and repaired at European Motorsports for the past six years. I have nothing but praise for the management and staff at Euro. They have done minor and major repairs and kept my porsche in practically mint condition all this time.

First with two BMW's and then (&now) with Mercedes on several occasions, I've had the feeling that these guys at European know what they're doing. And, they do it in a very friendly, comfortable way, in one visit.

I first went to European Motorsports when service manager Cameron began working there. The shop is off the main drag, and a little challenging to find. Once there, the search will be worth it.Cameron is very knowledgeable about German autos. He can often diagnose problems when you arrive. He has saved us time and money by telling us what we didn't need, and focused on the problem at hand. He has become our go-to guy when our BMW needs attention.The shop is clean, the mechanics are quick and efficient, and the prices are reasonable.

We needed something very minor with our Cayman Porsche and didnt know of a reputable place to take it. We called a few places but Euro Motorsports took the most time to inform and educate us on what could be needed. Cameron also mentioned that if this or that is good then we would not need to do this or that... not trying to up-sell business. We have taken our car there many times and will never go to another place for our car repairs. Thanks guys!!!

I met Cameron (service manager) this past Tuesday to get a quote on my Porsche 2003 catalytic converter. He not only gave me a competitive quote but provided me less effective cost cutting solution. He suggested that I have Porsche San Diego upgrade the software to clear the check engine light. This is Cameron doing research that he did not have to do to serve me! That information saved me $5800!!!! I have 5,800 reasons to thank Cameron!!! What an honest guy and we need more people like Cameron who still believes in Integrity and excellence in customer service. Sal ConventoOwner, United States Karate Academy

The only good experience I have had when dealing with the Porsche. They will let you know what needs to be done now, what can wait and understands they level you want to take the car. A daily driver does not have the same needs as a show car. The work is done right the first time and prices are fair. This is not often the case at other shops. So glad there were recommended.

My 2005 Mini Cooper had a power steering pump problem that had to get fixed quickly so that I could trade it in on a new car. It was diagnosed and fixed immediately, at a fair price and ready when they said it would be. My new 2013 Mini Cooper will be a regular guest at European Motorsports!
