Cameron & his team are awesome! My car needed a number of services, including brake fluid flush, oil sensor change, and oil & filter change. Reasonable prices. I’d had an oil leak under watch with a prior mechanic and Cameron recommended the same, no upsell. Everything was completed the same day. Shop is very clean, everyone looks professional. I was referred by a friend and felt very confident in the repairs, would now highly recommend myself! 🙂

I trust this team with everything! I’ve been coming to European for close to a decade. They have also been instrumental in helping me decide which European car is worth purchasing and what to watch for!!!

I was just there to drive my daughter home after dropping off her mini for air conditioning service. They helped her feel confident about the work. The work was completed the same day, and the car was clean when she picked it up.

I have gone to Cameron for years. First to repair and maintain my vintage 190E-16, then my 1991 M5 and most recently my 2009 AMG c63. He is brilliant. He knows these cars. He and his staff of amazing mechanics recently rebuilt the c63 engine top and bottom and it has run flawlessly as a daily driver ever since. It is not an easy engine to rebuild but I would not have taken it anywhere else. He is meticulous and informative. If you go to any other shop, you are making a mistake.

I took my 2002 Audi TT in for service. This was my first visit. They went above and beyond to find parts that were no longer made at no additional fee. Their prices are very reasonable and my car runs better than it ever has. I 200% recommend them.

I brought my Macan S for an oil change and didn't have to pay the high prices that the dealer charges, Cameron, the owner is very personable. I also like that the recommended service along with pricing is reasonable as well. Thank you!

Cameron is highly knowledgeable and incredibly helpful. He assisted me and provided me with straight forward recommendations. I have confidence in taking my car to European motors!

Honest, efficient, and no nonsense. Superb local business. They saved me $500+ on a rear main seal job this spring, as compared to the Audi dealership in Carlsbad. When a mysterious noise started coming from my engine on the way home from work recently, I called European and they told me to come right over-- before I even parked, they knew what the problem was and told me the dealer would fix it for free under the extended warranty. What a relief. Will be consulting European for every Audi issue from now on!

Had to bring my M/B back for a new battery. They completed major front suspension repairs last year. They did a fantastic job. Promptly repaired it with very reasonable prices. Another perfect job with the battery. Finally met the owner "Joe ". After speaking with him you understand why they are so honest and dependable.

Had an appointment to have my Mini Cooper looked at . Service manager diagnosed car corrected service light, which was a reminder for oil change that I had done at another shop and I was unaware that they did not reset it. Spent time with me going over my car and what to look for. Did not reccomend or try and sell any other service as the only issue he found was the service light which he corrected. Did not charge me anything .definitely would reccomend them and will be using them when needed for their utmost integrity and professionalism

I simply could not be happier with European MotorSports. Cameron makes you feel very comfortable immediately with his extreme knowledge of all things German. The attention to detail is very appreciated. I will be going back to have some necessary maintenance done in my engine bay and I am very comfortable leaving my baby with these guys. I'm certain that all work will be done with the same quality and care as if they were working on their own cars. I am very happy to have a home for my little silverback...Cheers Guys.

I can't say enough wonderful things about all the guys at European Motorsports. I have taking my diesel Jettawagen here since I moved to the area. Everyone is so professional and pricing is fair. Cameron always takes time to explain what needs to be done. I always know my car is in good hands here.

Joe and Cameron are the Best of The Best! Wouldn't trust anyone else with my Porsches.They are the first I go to for advice when I investigate buying porsches. Are always on target with repairs; excellent in describing exactly what needs to be done and then explaining what they found. Joe has been tenacious in finding root causes of electrical issues. My "Go-To-Porsche-Experts", they have been wonderful partners in my car care, for over 9 years. Trustworthy, highest quality and just wonderful people to know. Lucky me!

possibly the most honest car repair person I've ever met. I had an issue with my BMW. He ran diagnostics, then told me the issue is covered under warranty and suggested I take it to BMW so they could repair it at no cost...

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!
