Very satisfied with this service overall. They replaced my water pump and thermostat on my BMW 325i. It was time to get the coolant system replaced as the mileage was at 121,000, and I could tell the car was overheating sometimes and losing power. They are a top notch service provider with fair prices.... About the price, it is at the higher end, but it is 100% worth it. If you are looking for the cheapest repair cost this is NOT the place.... but if you are looking for the most experienced mechanic this IS your place. When working on high end cars you need a high end mechanic!

I highly recommend A&R German Motors! I have used them for the past two years to service my BMW and have been impressed by their honest evaluation and recommendations, excellent work and fair pricing. Always friendly, trustworthy and timely service! Jane. Redondo Beach

A&R came recommended to me by a very tough to please friend; the guys there are terrific mechanics and very trustworthy. No small thing. I always felt cheated by my dealership and am relieved to have A&R as an option. I will continue my relationship with them for as long as I have my BMW.

A&R provides consistent prompt service at very fair prices. They perform the needed service and do not try to do up selling. They provide reasons for the recommended service and explain in detail any questions the customer may have. A solid five star rating!

We have three Mercedes (2 are AMGs) and couldn't be happier with the prompt service. They provide top quality service at the less expensive prices I've been able to find. I have recommended their service to others and everyone has been completely satisfied.

Great work on my BMW M5. Always an honest, thorough and quality job. Customer service is great with quick turnaround. I've brought my car in several times and have never been disappointed.

Ralph & Al are nothing but the best!!! I have had my car serviced at their shop for several years and am always satisfied with their service and price. A great benefit is that A&R's labor charge is about half of what the local (Torrance) Mercedes Benz dealer charges. I highly recommend A&R and will continue to benefit from their services (as long as they'll have me).

great service. actually didn't charge me for work once when the work didn't completely fix the problem. been going for years with my AMG and will continue as long as I own a mercedes.

I have taken my Mercedes here twice for three different services and will absolutely keep coming back in the future for oil changes and maintenance. Ralph is super friendly, knowledgeable and straight forward. I never feel like they are being at all dishonest about what services I need done and how much they should cost, a problem which I have unfortunately run into with other shops. A&R is not very convenient for me to get to on the weekdays, so the fact that I go out of my way to bring my car there is a testament to how much I like them.

As always, my car was finished when promised and everything I had concerns about was addressed. Alan and Ralph are honest and take time to answer my questions.

They did a great job on my wife's landrover. They saved us $500.00 on brakes and rotors over what thedealership was going to charge us for the same job.

Ralph is genius. Fair, honest, an expert mechanic, timely, and awesome.. The overall experience has consistently been a 10 for many years.
Mario L
Popped in for an minor routine service item with no reservation and Ralph took care of it while I waited. Excellent price as well. We are now pretty much committed to only owning Mercedes or BMW's because we don't want to have to go anywhere else for service
Chris S
Always quick, but never rushed. Great job!
Stuart W
Excellent service.So much better and faster than working directly with Mercedes Benz dealer!

Ralph from A & R German motors is the best... The one thing that is hard to find in mechanics now days is honesty and this shop has that I have been coming here for about a year now and anything Ralph says I completely trust.. He has even fixed stuff that I assumed would cost $500+ for free simply because something was disconnected... Other mechanics could have easily said it was a big job and charged me whatever they wanted.. By far the best shop I have ever been to and the most genuine and honest mechanic around.. His labor rate is very reasonable compared to others, and he seems to my Mercedes and BMW's like the back of his hand..I highly recommend Ralph from A & R German Motors to all my friends, family, and customers...

We were purchasing a used Mercedes and engaged A & R to perform a careful inspection (as per OEM Mercedes standards.). A comprehensive inspection was completed and details reported to us, both by phone discussion and hard copy documentation, to enable us to make an informed purchase. Very prompt and professional.

Fabulous as always :)

I've been coming here for years; they already know me by name as soon as come in.. Allen is very helpful and honest. Really hard to find a good and honest mechanic nowadays. Unlike other mechanics, they only tell you what is necessary to be done. No overselling! I'm really glad I found these guys. I won't be taking my car anywhere else.
Mike L.
These guys are seriously awesome. They were quick and broke everything down for me letting me know exactly what I needed to get done now and what could wait. Everyone was so courteous and my quote was fair. Old adage, so hard to find a good mechanic, Ralph is the real deal. Thanks

Great service as always. I appreciate the honesty and integrity of A & R!

GREAT! The window regulator had not failed, but a bolt had come loose. Instead of about a $500 repair, it was only about $100. A less scrupulous shop would have replaced the regulator to make more money.I have had nothing but great experiences with A&R.

You fixed a serious problem no other mechanic could even understand. And now my Mercedes runs beautifully as it should. Thank you.

Al & Ralph are terrific. They are extremely knowledgeable and honest. I took my 2008 3 series in for a new battery and oil change and they took the time to look over the entire car pointing out some upcoming issues I would never had known about. No pressure or up selling just notes of things to be aware of in the future. They charged considerably less than the quote I got from the dealer. I will be taking my car there from now on.

I took my Mercedes E430 in because my shifter was shaking. Allen checked it out and fixed it in less than an hour! It turned out to be something else.. But Now my Mercedes runs like it should! I would definitely recommend this shop to anyone!! The best mechanic experience!! Thanks a lot Allen!
