Here’s what some of our Anaheim, CA customers are saying about us:


This review is long overdue, but Steve’s kindness has not been forgotten.
Steve is not only the best when it comes to servicing my BMW, he’s just an all around good person. He is honest and forthright in his analysis of any issue I have ever had with my car and I trust him implicitly (can’t believe I’m saying that about an auto mechanic based upon my previous experiences with others in this field!). He uses genuine BMW parts and really knows his stuff.
After a horrible experience ( long story) I had elsewhere, I took my car to him to inspect. As I had expected, I had been really taken advantage of - but worse than I had thought. He explained and showed me everything. Along with other issues, the BMW brakes he had installed just months before had been replaced with cheap Chinese brakes and pads. Before leaving he even said he’d better check the lug nuts just to be safe. Sure enough, several were dangerously loose. I learned a tough lesson, but Steve’s wise counsel and understanding helped when I needed it most.

Great service. I have been going here for years. Steve knows what he's doing and his prices are fair. He's always very up front and he explains the why behind the what.

I am very, very pleased with my experience here! In the almost 6 years I've owned my MBZ, I've had the best car service experience at Bavarian Auto House... and it's not even close! Steve is a wonderful person, and I appreciate his transparency in his explanations and what he and his crew do. This is unlike taking my car to the dealer, where they claim something needs to be done (but don't offer much of an explanation or details). Steve explained everything to me succinctly and to the point. I knew what services were being performed and why they were being performed. He only mentions the services that your car needs and will not upsell you. How's that for a breath of fresh air! He even showed me the new parts that were going to replace the old parts (and also the replaced parts afterwards). As some of the other reviews mentioned, don't judge a book by its cover! This place might not look all that great from the outside, but don't let that keep you from making the call. The quality of service is excellent and that's all that matters. Although honest mechanics are a dying breed, a few of them still exist (with Steve definitely being one of them). I highly recommend Steve and Bavarian Auto House. One of the easiest 5 star ratings I have ever given, and I will be back! Oh, and I should add that my car runs really well after the service. Thanks, Steve!

Honest and intelligent. If I had to describe this place in two words, those would be them. I took my MB Sprinter there and it was diagnosed and repaired for LESS THAN HALF of what MB of Anaheim was going to charge me. () All easy! Highly recommend!

Google Review


I didn't use their service at this time because Steve was very honest with me and said it would make sense to use the dealer in this case. But he gave me a very candid assessment of the diagnosis which the dealer did not. And so he will definitely get the next service call.

Although I've never done business with this auto repair place (not yet), I found that the owner Steve was very responsive to my questions and gave me sound and honest advice. I will be taking my car there when/if it needs repair (but hopefully not). Seems like a good place to have your car fixed.

Yelp Review


SUPER honest guy! I was in and out within an hour. Not that my car needed any major work done, but service was impeccable and he's very knowledgeable. Thank you so much, Steve!

Yelp Review


Fast and great service. I had my thrust arm bushings go out on my 7 series and the dealership claimed that even though i would need to replace parts that are covered under warranty the bushing were not so they wanted me to pay $2000 for some bushings and control arms. Steve came in at almost half the price with the parts coming from the dealership. Would definitely recommend giving him a call first.

Yelp Review


Fast response. Genuine BMW parts. Would definitely go back. Called in the morning, drop off the car 10am and picked up 3pm.

Yelp Review


Amazing service extremely professional and reliable. Prices are great too all in all very happy. I will definitely be bringing all my cars back here for any work that needs to be done.

Yelp Review


I was looking for a local mechanic for the 40k scheduled maintenance on our 2014 VW Beetle R-Type. Communication and follow-up was great, the price was very reasonable (with a discount for paying cash), and the work was done on-time and with no surprises. What more can you ask for? I will definitely be back for future service needs.

Yelp Review


Took my wife's mercedes in for a B service.
Saved about $200 from dealership quotes. Steve the owner was real down to earth guy. Straight shooter no bs guy. After he finished on my car he took the time to explain to me the quality of all the parts etc that were replaced. He knew was he was talking about and was passionate about his work.
Will be returning for all my future maintenance needs .
Great job Steve Thank you

Yelp Review


Steve is absolutely lovely. He is incredibly thorough and very informative regarding issues with our car. I have absolute trust in his recommendations when comes to servicing our 2013 BMW.

I can't imagine taking our car anywhere else

Yelp Review


Took my bmw m240i in the other day for a oil change and coolant refill. Steve was extremely friendly, fast and efficient. I legit think it was the fastest oil change I've ever had! I would highly recommend this place to anyone, and I know I'll be taking my car in here the next time I need anything done. Thanks steve!

Yelp Review


First off, I seldom write reviews, but I felt it appropriate to write this one. I am a long time BMW 3 series car guy, who typically turns my own wrench, but this time, I didn't have the free time to replaced my failed starter. I was recommended to Bavarian Auto House, and have no regrets. Steve the owner gave me a reasonable quote and used only OEM parts. On top of that, the turnaround was one day. Don't wait until your experiencing sticker shock at the dealership, talk to Steve first, and at least give him a consideration, you wont be disappointed.

Yelp Review


Absolutely the best around. Steve, the owner, is honest and very straight forward with what needs to be done. I send all my friends and family his way. If you are looking for a trustworthy mechanic, look no further. I can't say enough about how happy I am.

Yelp Review


Steve is the friendliest, feels like he is your family who owns a shop, thank you for servicing my car promptly and you can be assured he is truly concern about your cars .

Yelp Review


WoW needed a BMW battery replaced ASAP called all my local 5-star shops and nobody could do it right away. Steve replied quickly and I was really impressed with his honesty, he texted me with updates and within 2 hours my car was done. He also showed me the old battery and specifically showed me the dates on it. If only all mechanics were this honest. I have a few BMWs I'll be bringing by for regular service. Steve thanks again for your help on such short notice. See you soon!

Yelp Review


Excellent customer service and very honest guy! My husband took my car in for leaking coolant. He gave excellent advise on what to do next. Found out it was still covered under warranty. Saved us a lot of money! Would definitely recommend and return for future BMW services.

Yelp Review


Fair pricing and honest service. I had a stater go out over the weekend, it was difficult finding a shop. I messaged a few shops on Yelp. Steve from Bavarian auto house was quick to respond,although he wasn't open, he said he could complete the job Monday and have it done by 4:00 pm. My BMW is my daily driver without it I'm lost. I'll definitely be back for any of Bmw's service.
Thanks Steve for quick service and fair price!

Yelp Review


Had the pleasure of working with Steve on my 2014 BMW 435i. This was the first time my vehicle was serviced outside of the dealer so naturally, I was a bit nervous.

From our first conversation Steve was to-the-point and honest. He beat the dealerships estimate by nearly 50% for the same work and authentic parts! I dropped off my car at 7am and it was ready for pickup by 11:30am (same day).

Steve - Thank you to you and your team for an awesome experience. We'll see you soon for the annual maintenance / oil change.

Yelp Review


Made my appointment to replace my coolant tank, made my appointment for the same day. Got there and was in and out within 30 minutes! Amazing service definitely coming back.

Yelp Review


After my car maintenance light was on, and my second time factory warranty expired, I was looking for a local shop which has technology and experience for my BMW. Glad that I found this place on yelp. The owner Steve was very nice and patient to show me what kind of services I should have done base on my mileage. He wanted to make sure my car didn't skip any of those listings. As a girl who doesn't really know those car's languages, he suggested me to call BMW service department to get those information. I did and found out what I have had done for the past years. Steve told me that I just need oil and filter change and I should be fine. He even should me the part's package was for BMW. I was so very happy and satisfied with their service. It's like you finally found a good vet for your pet. This place is my BMW's "Hospital" from now on.

Yelp Review


Steve was able to text me the description of the service he would provide and quoted me a fair price. Will be back.

Yelp Review


I finally found right place for my 2013 Mercedes ML350 to get 10,000 miles maintainance service.
Steven was nice and the price are fair and serclvice is timely
Thank you! See you next service.

Yelp Review


This place is what a mechanic shop should be. Honest work and pricing with no attempts to up sell or push things you don't need. If I could give more then 5 stars I would. Will be back for all my cars maintenance!

Yelp Review


I needed to have a PPI done, and Steve actually came in while he was closed to get it done for me. Did a thorough job and was honest about the issues the car had. Will definitely be my mechanic if I end up with a German car.

Yelp Review


I took in my 2016 Mercedes C class for the first time to Bavarian Auto House to get serviced. Steve was awesome! He was spot on in pinpointing the problem. After speaking with him, I felt he was very knowledgeable about my car. I also appreciated his honesty and reasonable prices compared to the dealer. I finally found my family mechanic for my German cars.

Yelp Review


This has been the easiest and most straight forward German Car mechanic I've been to. Steve is very knowledgeable and has great prices for the services he provides. I saved so much money going to him instead of the dealer. He works by appointment only, so when you get your car serviced, the wait time is very short for your vehicle. I own a BMW 330ci convertible and he was able to fix the problems the other mechanics weren't able to. I highly recommend Steves shop! Steve is a great guy and has good customer service.

Yelp Review


I did a DIY headgasket on my wife BMW, the car would only crank and not start after. Looked up a repair shop near by with good reviews called Bavarian Auto, spoke to Steve. He was about to leave the shop for the day and said he could drop by and take a look at the car, he arrived on time and provided guidance (Im sure he normally would not do this). Unfortunately due to bad weather (Rain) I still have been unable to finish my repair and Steve had to close his shop for a few week due to the Covid19. Basically if i cant fix it my self i'll have to wait. Will update this review if i end up using his services. 5 Star for Steve for awesome service even thought I did all the work JK.

Yelp Review


Initially picked up a 2005 Z4 with the service engine light on and needed some minor repairs. Due to convenience factor I took it to couple of local indy BMW shops around my house and noone would even take a look at the car with some sort of diagnostic fee of $75 or $100 bucks or like my car got COVID 19 or some%$#@.

I end up calling Steve and not just he was nice enough to talk/explain things to me, he asked me to drive the car over... so he can OBD it and find out what's going on with no charge. He even assisted me in passing smog and helped repair thermostat, replaced a belt and typical liquid moly oil change.

I tell ya there's not a lot of honest and integrity mechanics left and they advertised like they are honest and reliable but don't what to help without showing the wallet first. I was very satisfied with his service and not just be a returning client but also posted him on our BMW z4 forum already which have 3200 SoCal members. Look no further as this place is honest, integrity and priced very fair, thank you.

Yelp Review


I contacted Steve to let him know the issue I was having with my Mercedes C250 and he took my information and contacted me with a quote. Everything he said he was going to do he did and the price he quoted didn't change. He showed me exactly what was wrong and explained what he would be doing. Uses all original parts. Great price, great work and a good and honest guy.

Thanks again Steve

Yelp Review


I have to say that Steve is an extreme breath of fresh air when it comes to Mercedes mechanics. While he seems very hyper, he is very enthusiastic about helping you as he did me get answers to why my car was not running correctly. I highly recommend Bavarian Auto House for your auto repair. He will not go for your wallet and he is very fair on his pricing. I will definitely use him again.

Yelp Review


First time customer & will definitely be returning. Steve was quick to respond, very easy going & professional. Took the time to answer all my questions & concerns with honest input. Had all correct spark plugs swapped in & a bad coil replaced w/ same day service! Even took time out of his evening to have a phone conservation with me & answer a few more questions of mine. Very hard to find an honest, trustworthy, reliable mechanic these days so if your'e in search you've found exactly the shop!

Yelp Review


I have not had my vehicle serviced here yet. I requested a quote for a pre-purchase inspection of a Mercedes C63S AMG. Steve responded quickly and thoroughly. I was shocked at the amount of time he spent drafting a response and time he spent educating me over the phone when I called him. To my surprise, he suggested taking the vehicle to the dealership because of level of modifications done by the seller. He gave me some insight and his opinions, which I appreciated. After speaking with Steve, I decided not to buy that vehicle. The red flags were already waving in my head, Steve just reinforced my concerns from a professional perspective. I'll definitely take my next vehicle to him for service and repair.

Yelp Review


Our daughter had to take our BMW to get fixed in the Orange/Anaheim area. I picked Bavarian Auto House as they had great reviews. Steve was so professional and helpful with our daughter who is a college student. The price was reasonable and car was fixed the next day. We will be returning if we need any work done in the car. Thank you Steve for making this Mom in San Diego feel good about the visit!

Yelp Review


Will always be coming here from now on for my BMW. Steve is the best and always has affordable prices and he's super fast!

Yelp Review


I used Bavarian Auto for the first time for my Mercedes E350. I had my Schedule A service done. I was very happy with the friendly and fast service and fair price. I will come back for B service. I previously have only gone to the dealer.

Yelp Review


Driving my Kid to school on the 91 freeway today my GTI misfired and the Check Engine light flashed a few times; I managed to get my Kid to school and drove over to Steve at Bavarian. I had NO appointment and Steve was fully-booked.

He didn't send me away but rather had his tech check things out. It seems I had a bad coil which he replaced. I was out in a little over an hour. NO OTHER SHOP WOULD DO THIS! We've been longtime fans of Bavarian Auto House; my Wife and I will never take our cars anywhere else.

Steve, thanks for always being straight up and super helpful. You kick ass!

Yelp Review


This business is amazing. I'm a regular customer who highly recommends taking your Mercedes for service. Prices are fair and service is timely. 5 stars for sure!

Yelp Review


Talk about fast responses and quick appointments, I needed an oil change for my Cayenne and Steve tried to make a convenient appointment for me over Yelp messaging and text messages because I wasn't able to make a phone call at the time. He is very accommodating from making the appointment to the appointment itself. I was in and out of there exactly an hour and his quotes were extremely accurate meaning he'll tell you what you need and that's it. He's also very fun to interact with.

Yelp Review


Bavarian auto is the first auto shop I've gone to other than the stealership. Steve is an amazingly charismatic guy even at 7:30am! He was able to schedule me for the day after I called and gave me a quote over the phone. After arriving he showed me all the genuine products he uses and it definitely shows that this place knows how to take care of German cars!
I got my VW Passat serviced and Steve was nice enough to give me recommendations for future service based on mileage. I will definitely make this shop my go to place for service or other issues.

Yelp Review


First time going there today. Steve is amazing. Super friendly and knowledgeable! Piece of cake getting my oil changed in my 328i. Great prices and great atmosphere! Will definitely be going there for all of my maintenance and repairs.

Thank you Steve! Be sure to hit me up whenever you go into my grocery store!

Yelp Review


The 5 stars yelp rating makes sense now. I had an oil leak in my BMW Z4. Steve gave me a quick run down on what was going on during the inspection. Gave me a good price on the repair. He also took the extra mile to check my service lights and tire pressure. It was a pleasure to get my car serviced here. Definitely coming back for future oil changes and repairs. Thank you Steve!

Yelp Review


Great experience at the shop. Steven is very easy going and really knows his trade. No BS, honest pricing (much better than the dealership). After the brake job was completed, he was kind enough to drive my car to my workplace and pick me up. Would definitely recommend. A+

Yelp Review


Lower price than dealership on scheduled maintenance jobs, also very honest of not doing jobs they can't deliver and deferring to other specialists. Steve the owner is a great guy.

Yelp Review


I have a bmw 3 series and during my last oil change at one of those quick drive thru places I learned I need to find a shop that specializes in BMW. Found this place through yelp and when I called after work he squeezed me in same day. I paid less for my oil change than I did at the previous place, plus the owner told me they didn't even use the right filter and oil. He showed me the filters they use and i could see it was genuine bmw. It took less than 25 minutes as well. The waiting room is tiny and awkward but I just walked to a store next door to kill time. The owner is a bit of the wall, in like a robin williams kind of way lol. I could feel the improvement in my car as soon as I drove it. I would go here again.

Yelp Review


Steve is the go to ! Had some major check engine problems that got worked on. Steve who seem to be a pro at what he does got my car running like new again. Saw Beamer's Benz's and Audi's in the work shop getting worked on. Highly recommend

Yelp Review


I've used Bavarian Auto House five or six times in the past three years for repairs to my 2008 BMW 525I, and I realize, to my chagrin, that I've neglected to write any reviews about the great work Steve and Ernesto have done on my car. In 2016 my 5 Series needed lots of help with some major and minor repairs (valve cover and oil filter housing gaskets, eccentric shaft sensor, struts), work the guys did promptly and perfectly, for a fair price. Since then Steve has done other repairs, always finding the problem and fixing it right. He'll bring you into the shop to show you what's wrong, what he's doing to fix it, and, even if you trust him and aren't interested, he insists on showing you the parts he's replaced. One time, Steve improved my Beamer beyond BMW's OEM specs: ever since I bought the car new, the front brake pads had constantly thrown off clouds of black brake dust, making the wheels a real nuisance to clean. When I mentioned this, Steve eliminated the problem by installing different brake pads. Brake dust gone completely! In 2016, during a recall repair, the BMW dealer gave me a list of half a dozen items that they “recommended for repair,” totaling $3,500. After looking at the list, Steve gave me his price for the items that did need repair, and, as you might guess, his prices were below dealer estimates. Then Steve advised me that two of the items on the list didn't need to be done at all. And, for one other item on the list that the dealer quoted $335, Steve replaced for $65! One morning last week I found myself, exhausted and not feeling well after some uncomfortable medical treatments, looking at my car in a hospital parking lot with a coolant leak, really at a loss how to proceed. With no friends or family members able to help at that time, I felt up the proverbial creek. I called Steve, describing the problem, hoping he might tell me I could limp the car a few miles to my house and deal with the problem later. Since he was able to diagnose (over the phone) that the cooling system wasn't losing a lot of water, he immediately advised me not to try to drive home but to obtain some water, which I was able to do, and keep filling up the radiator as I drove the car the four or five miles to his shop. Once I got there, he began work on the car almost immediately and finished the repair within a couple of hours, turning what was looking to be a pretty awful day into a much better one. I can't praise Steve enough. He's always been friendly, helpful, responsive, and determined to repair my car quickly and accurately. A hell of a nice guy, he goes the extra mile and is as honest as they come, and I trust him completely. My car now runs much better than it did three years ago. I would never take any German car to any other shop. Ever. I'm a customer here for life.

Yelp Review


Have never been so happy with a mechanic before. Steve gives great customer service and was so upfront with any possible issues and pricing. I'd recommend Bavarian Auto House and Steve to anyone with a German car that needs repair. Will go back to them for every oil change and any bit of maintenance moving forward.

Yelp Review


Friendly customer service. The owner showed me the parts the oil and the filter. Just to make sure everything is legit.

Yelp Review


Great guy, will do courtesy inspection not other shops when they look at your vehicle they charge right away.

Yelp Review


Being someone who likes to work on my own car and found the BMW dealer a bad experience, I checked these guys out and decided to give them a shot. The price was very fair, the communication solid and the work done correctly. I feel more confident in having this company keeping my car on the road for a very long time.

Yelp Review


I cannot say enough about this auto shop, and its owner Steve. They are honest, reliable and very reasonable in cost as compared to dealerships and other auto mechanics I have worked with in the past. They have taken excellent care of both of my BMW's and I will keep on coming to them, both for repairs and routine maintenance. Thank you Steve!

Yelp Review


These guys are legit. I just got a bmw and was hesitant to call these guys because I knew they were the best in the business so I thought they would also be super expensive. I went to different bmw specialists and they all tried to give me the work-around. They had me worrying about issues I didn't even know my car had and tried to charge me an arm and a leg for unnecessary repairs. So after talking to several mechanics I couldn't trust, I finally called these guys to help me out. Steve was upfront and honest with me about my car. He seemed to know exactly what was going on, super knowledgeable, and experienced. Quoted me on a fair price for repairs and gave me a slew of options of how I can go about repairing my vehicle. Super trustworthy and overall great guys. No doubt these guys will take care of you. Should have gone to these guys in the first place!

Yelp Review


I purchased a used 2006 Porsche Boxster and brought it to Steve for service. He completed an oil change, new spark plugs and new air filter. He sent me pictures through out the process and worked with me on the price. Steve was friendly and I felt that the price and labor was good. I will be coming back here for future service.

Steve is really great he only uses OEM parts and he really cares. Most valuable German Car Auto Shop in the western hemisphere. I live in AZ now and I will drive all the way to his shop when our car needs it.

Google Review


I am extremely impressed with this shop. Family owned and ran company and great atmosphere. I was provided a transportation to and from my work while they worked on my 2004 330i and Steve kept me informed threw out the day on what was going on.

Before I came here, I was quoted 2,700 for work to be done to my car and it was going to take an entire week. With no transportation.

Bavarian Auto House did the work for 1,000 and not only provided transportation but the car was done the SAME DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

10 stars out of 5 in my book

Hours good, prices fair and; Steve uses new factory parts. Win win.

Yelp Review


This review has been a long time coming.
I was driving one day to an appointment and my car suddenly felt extremely funny. In a panic I searched for the closest auto repair shop.It brought me here. The owner was one of, if not the nicest person I've ever met. He saw how stressed I was about my car and missing my appointment and, even though they were about to close, he took my car in and he himself drove me to my appointment in Huntington Beach. I ubered back to the auto shop after the appointment and, as I was on my way there, I called and asked if my car was drive-able because I had a job interview the next morning in Laguna Nigel. He told me that the shop was unfortunately closing so they wouldn't be able to take care of my car that day and advised me that it was not okay to be driven. He then went above and beyond again and allowed me to borrow one of his cars so that I could go to my interview! I will forever be grateful to him. I had just moved to the area, so I needed to find employment quickly and life had been hard on me lately. I had just bought this car because someone ran a red light totaling my previous vehicle. Although my car is not German, (Nissan Murano) they still did amazing work and had my car back to me early the next morning. And because of his generosity, I was able to make it to my doctor's appointment, job interview, and salon appointment (Which as any lady could attest, takes sometimes weeks to attain).
A million times thank you. I'll never forget your kindness and professionalism.

Yelp Review


What can I say? This place has kept my 2002 Mercedes-Benz C240 running beautifully. I feel that the prices are fair considering that Mercedes are expensive to maintain and repair. I have been going here for the last 12 years in which time the original owner transferred the business to his nephew. The service has remained high quality and the prices remain fair. In addition to regular maintenance I have had many repairs including windshield wipers, two broken door handles, a broken cup holder, and leaks under the hood. Each time the repairs were completed in one day and the communication was great. When my car is ready they call me and don't make me wait until late in the day to go pick it up.

Yelp Review


Steve explains everything thoroughly and runs a great shop. He's also very honest, which is important in my book.

Yelp Review


I didn't give them any business because I don't own a BMW, but Steve's service was beyond my expectation. He is an honest guy u can trust and take your car to.

I was contemplating getting a used bmw and wanted to schedule a mechanical check up with a local shop before I pull the trigger. I found Steve's shop here on Yelp and he gave me his opinion about used bmw and weighted all the pros and cons with me. We exchanged texts as well as phone calls.

Steve didn't hesitate to give me all his concerns about used bmw and I ended up didn't get the car largely due to what he's told me. I am so glad I checked with Steve.

Yelp Review


Best mechanic I've ever worked with! I drive a 2001 BMW X5, and my family owns a few other German cars and Steve is by far the most honest, understanding, and patient mechanic around. I live in Santa Barbara but after visiting three auto shops in the SB area that wouldn't help me, I found Steve and he accommodated my work schedule and the fact that I lived 2+ hours away. He took the time to explain to me (and not in a condescending tone at all) what was wrong with my car and has been available to help ever since. I strongly recommend Steve to anyone who is tired of going to overpriced, dishonest mechanics!

Yelp Review


Steve is great! He is always right on his diagnostics, and he never tries to oversell you. Ernesto, one of the members of his his crew is very knowledgeable and polite. I stopped taking my C450 to the dealer for regular service and maintenance, there is no need to pay those overpriced services. Steve takes care of my car with OEM parts at a fair price.

Yelp Review


Very quick and detailed response to my request for a service quote. So far so good! Will update in the future with more experience related information.

Yelp Review


Perfect timing for my flush and never met a mechanic that had so much knowledge with a sense of humor as Steve and co worker Ernesto was very top of the line worker not very funny as Steve but Ernesto kept it real with professional personality to balance the stand up comedy show of Steve who was also professionally funny, two of the best techs tucked on the top of Orange County in Anaheim ca. Go anywhere else than your just paying for robot techs who charge u a fee that they don't know what's going on diagnostics, others will plug a obd2 and read numbers on fault codes that go away when the real issue is solved but make you the customer pay more. If u drive German made cars old or new these two know what do.

Yelp Review


Great service! Fast and affordable! I was attended by Steve and he went the extra mile with my daughter's BMW. He took the time to show me how to check the car, run diagnostics and showed me the parts that he was changing. 100% recommended! Superb service. Thank you!

Yelp Review


Steve is legit. Honest, No BS, great service. Highly recommended for your German car service or repair.

Yelp Review


Steve is the BEST!
Honest man for owning a auto repair place for BMW's! He always saves your parts and shows you what he replaced. If you are waiting on the repair, he will bring you out to the garage and show you what his guys are doing.
As a women, I feel really comfortable bringing my cars to him. Too bad he won't touch the Toyota! lol

Steve, the owner, was great in taking care of my A5. I appreciated him answering my call during off hours and providing solid recommendations. His service was quick, but thorough and transparent, and he offers competitive pricing.

Ask for steve super polite and professional guy. Didn't try to sell me anything extra I didn't need,

Steve is really great he only uses OEM parts and he has loaner cars.

Have you heard about any honest mechanic ? These guys are. I took my 2001 335D BMW this morning for an engine malfunction, he took a look at it and he realized it was Diesel engine and he honestly told that that kind of engine was not his specialty. He told that the problem could be the a faulty injector, fuel pump or a faulty EMC, he suggested to take to a Diesel specialist. I quoted with them the prices for brakes, oil change, engine and transmission tune up and their prices are far below that any place I used to take my vehicle for service. Bottom line is they are extremely friendly and knowledgeable, I can't wait to take my car to them for the next due service. 5 stars

Brought in my Mercedes C230. My car wouldn't start. Spoke with Steve on the phone. Took my car to Bavarian Auto House. Ended up being the starter. This shop is very knowledgeable about euro cars. On time, honest, and fair priced. I would recommend!

They were the best, i brought in my old e30 and installed a new alternator, intake gasket, and oil and coolant service all in one day. He completed it even though it was super busy, and was very polite and explained the problems in detail. my 88 is back up and running!!

Don't let the outside appearance scare you. This guy is great! My BMW was acting up and he diagnosed it and fixed it with in an hour. Much cheaper than going to the dealer. I was super impressed and now super happy my baby is running again.

Great shop! Steve's the man!

I WAS looking for a good mechanic to take my cars to and then I found the Bavarian House. This place took care of me like no other and the work is so much better than the dealer. Steve took my sick Mini Cooper in and, well it runs better than when it was new. And it is so rare to find someone so fair, that actually does what he says and when he states when he will be done he is right on. This is the second time they have worded on my vehicle and have really gone above and beyond what I was expecting. I have worked on cars and built them all my life and I have finally found a place I can take my cars too and refer to friends and family. I do not write reviews good or bad but this place is truly exceptional. Now I'm taking my VW to them.

Google Review


This place is fantastic. Seriously. I came in with some engine misfiring issues on my e36 M3 and only a little bit of time to get to the airport to pick up a buddy of mine. Steve squeezed me in between appointments and got me taken care of in under an hour. I needed a part from him, as well as one other that he didn't have, so he recommended a place for me to pick it up right away. Super cool guy, nice little shop, and helped me figure out the issues.

I went in with a misfiring car and SEVERAL possible issues, and left within an hour with a purring M3 that pulled outta there like a bloody F1 car.

Great mechanic. Quick work. Fair prices. These guys know their stuff.

Google Review


These guys are trustworthy and terribly nice. I had my VW Eurovan on vacation passing through for the day at Disneyland. Steve answered a text on a Sunday during off hours and said to come in Monday morning at 7:30 AM. We checked out the van and found the issue. Our part was in another city an hour away so one of the mechanics drove there that morning to pick it up. The part was replaced by 2:00 and we were ready to be on our way north. Great service and honest pricing.

I won't let anyone but Joe touch my Mercedes. Honest, quick service at very fair prices.

Google Review


I've used Joe for years and would only trust him with my Porsches. I've never had any problems or issues, I personally have my Porsche transported across states for Joe only to handle in the past. He is well known in the Porsche and any German car owners.

Google Review


Everyone needs a mechanic and I found mine with Steve and Ernesto. Steve has excellent communication and is a straight shooter. Two things I value immensely. From the moment he took my call to following up after my service he was constantly texting me and sending me pictures of what was going on with my car.

For my situation he replaced a starter in my 2007 BMW 328i and diagnosed an issue with my air conditioning I didn't end up replacing due to cost. It was a value service since wherever he could he was fixing extra or topping off something which I appreciated.

At the end of the day I gave five stars because I felt I could trust Steve and I walked away feeling what I had paid for was more than fair vs. getting ripped off at the dealer.

(This was my first visit and would definitely go back again)

Yelp Review


First time visiting this repair shop because I had problem with the driver side door and had to replace actuator. So I called this shop yesterday and made an appointment for today at 9:30 AM. When I arrived at the shop, the owner was not at the shop but worker who's working came up to me what problem I had with the car. I told him that I made an appointment at 9:30 AM had to get my driver side door actuator replaced. Then the worker first thought that I made an appointment to replace driver side window.

Anyways he told me repair for door actuator replacement will take a bit of a long time and asked me if I have someone that will pick me up. I replied I will stay until the car is fully repaired and the worker directed me to guest waiting room and waited about three hours until the car was fully repaired. After three hours the owner of the store came to the guest area and told me the repair is complete and apologized for coming late and he gave me discounts on the repair job that they did with the actuator replacement!

I would definitely come back when I have any other problem come up on my car and I recommend this repair shop after your car's warranty has expired.

Yelp Review


I wouldn't take my car anywhere else. Steve was professional and super cool. I received my newly acquired Mercedes as a 'End of Chemotherapy' gift from my stepdad, and due to the recent treatments I currently have no eyebrows. That being said, Steve made me feel normal and didn't even bring it up! Quality shop run by a quality dude!

Yelp Review


Steve is the best! I've been coming to him for years with my '13 c300, '06 slk, and '05 c230k. After being ripped off at the dealer for so many years, I was so happy to have found this place. The work is honest, affordable, and fast. I appreciate that he shows you what parts need fixing and gives you options. He'll tell you if you need it done now or if you can wait an extra few thousand miles. I appreciate his flexibility - he doesn't push you to do anything. It's always your choice. His jokes come free with service and are hilarious! If you have a German vehicle, this is where you need to have it serviced!

Yelp Review


Steve took care of everything, thoughtfully went through all of my options, took in consideration the amount of miles on my 2003 Mercedes S500 and exceeded all expectations in the quality, and price of all the repairs. I don't know why you would take your car anywhere else, you can't go wrong with Steve and Bavarian Auto House!

Yelp Review


I've brought my 2003 Audi A4 here three times. They've changed my timing timing belt changed and oil, and have replaced my rear brake-light sensor, among various other items. Each time has been a excellent experience. Steve is friendly and fair.

Yelp Review


Steve is very friendly and his no frills company gets the job done right the first time. Thank you.

Yelp Review


Recently bought my first BMW , a used low mileage 335I sedan for a great bargain. The downside is that it is out of warranty and no maintenance history. Error code came up last week, with some power loss. I thought about taking it my usual mechanic that i bring my other car (Toyota) to , but i wanted a place that specializes in BMW and German cars. I also thought about going to a dealer but searched yelp for a mechanic instead. Glad I did and found Bavarian Auto House. The good reviews here are legit. Steven and crew found my car's exact issue and fixed it in no time. Car runs perfect now, power is restored, no more error messages. He also did a full inspection, fluid top off, and showed me the car's underbody to pinpoint what might be needed in the future.

Service is top notch with fair prices. Steven the owner is a great guy, honest, keeps you updated with status on your car and has a lot of good jokes too :)

Yelp Review


Steve and Ernesto always do a great job in working with my schedule and doing a high quality job at a reasonable price. As some others have noted, BMW's can be expensive to maintain--especially at the dealership after the first few years have passed. My 325 is now about 12 years old and going great guns thanks to Bavarian Auto. Highly recommended.

Yelp Review


German cars are expensive to up keep after the warranty runs out... enter Steve! Steve is friendly and fast. He and Ernesto are always there to help you. Steve will always show you the part in question and what he's done. He is honest and will let you know if you can wait to make some of the repairs fixed if you're tight on cash. But will stand firm if he thinks a repair is a must, out of safety. He is very busy so you better not look for the royalty butt-kissing treatment here. You might have to call back several times, but that's the price for getting the work done at a fraction of the royal price! What you will get are some jokes, a smile, and fast service with a warranty! We won't go anywhere else! Thanks Steve!

Called a day before for some quotes on service and AC issues, made an appointment for the next day. This place is as legit and honest as they come, kept me updated on the status of my car throughout the day. Will definitely bring my car again.

Yelp Review


Steve is awesome. Extremely responsive, honest, and helpful. He's the kind of mechanic that you know is on your side, will do a great job, and will charge you a fair price.

Yelp Review


I came down here in Anaheim because my daughter sent me an SOS that her Mini is acting up again. The Mini is 101tho miles and out of warranty, could have been $1000s in repair cost but luckily Steven accommodated me without an appointment. I am giving this shop a five star for being boldly honest to say that Mini is a junk and it is a money black hole. He was able to fix the problem by change of spark plugs. Error codes are now gone and hopefully forever but realistically I wish. Thanks to Steven, next time I will bring him Siopao and hot sauce.

Yelp Review


I came here because it was the nearest place from where my car had to towed. Needless to say after coming here, I am forever loyal. It was a small fix but the service was huge. That is so important to me. Everything was awesome! Steve, the owner, is incredibly helpful and knowledgeable. Great Experience and always coming back.

Yelp Review


Steve did a great job. Took care of my check engine light issue as a walk in customer and got it done the same day. Will highly recommend him to friends and family.

Yelp Review


Just had my 40k mile service and brakes done on my CLS 550. This was my second time using Bavarian. Steve runs a great business. His guys work quickly and know what they're doing. He communicates anything that comes up along the way. Thanks fellow Yelpers for the heads up to bring my car here. Highly recommend Steve and his team!

Yelp Review


My 2006 BMW 325i wouldn't start a couple weeks back. It acted like it had epilepsy or something. Electronics were kind of going nuts, every dash emergency symbol was flashing, check engine light was on, my wipers were going back and forth and could not be stopped.

I called up Steve and gave him the summary, all he knew is it wasn't starting and it instantly became his mission to get my car back to running condition. It was an odd problem that took a while to diagnose, however Steve capped the diagnosis fee at I believe $150. Took his team almost a full day to find the issue. I thought this was fair, I know BMW service ain't cheap. Turned out I had a faulty IBS sensor (negative battery terminal cable) and he fixed it for a fair price, cheaper than what the dealer would have done for me. In the meantime during this he identified some other issues I was suspicious about and was very cool and shared with me the price and process of fixing them.

It's been about 2 weeks since I paid him and drove off his lot. Car running great like it used to (I wait a minimum of 2 weeks before giving a positive review on things like this). After let's say 2 days the dude (Steve) shot me a text to check if everything was running properly. Solid guy, I'm definitely giving him another call whenever I need more maintenance work done.. which I'm positive I will.

Thanks again Steve!

Yelp Review


Been going to Steve for a while now. And he's an awesome guy, and he loves my e46. Other than the fact he has a great shop, great workers, great service and gets shot done. He is a very straight forward guy which is why I go to him every time. Most mechanics beat around the bush, but Steve is 110% honest and up front. Best place to go!

Yelp Review


Every once and a while you meet a straight shooter - a business man who knows what he's talking about and knows how to steer the customer not to his own wallet but rather to the best possible place. Bavarian is such a place. Take your car there first and you will not be disappointed.

Yelp Review


I rolled into this place first thing in the morning, having never been here before, with no appointment, and an E91 that felt like it was misfiring. Lucky for me the owner is a pretty cool dude, and they had a cancellation, so he took me right away.

The problem was diagnosed quickly, The repair was done in no time at all, and the price was fair. The owner, Steve, made it a point to show me all the parts that were replaced, (plugs and a coil,) and to keep me informed throughout.

Will I be back? Yeah, I'll be back. It's a BMW, it's gonna break, and this is my new spot.

Yelp Review


Steve and his crew are extremely knowledgeable and Steve always offers fair pricing, quick turn around times and legit work. If you live in the north Orange County area...you won't find better service.

Yelp Review


Probably the best mechanic I've taken my car to in all the years that I've owned it. I've referred quick a few people to Steve because I know the work that is going to be put out will be honest, clean and with a quick turn around.

Yelp Review


I've been taking my Audi A3 to Steve for a couple of years. He's always professional, respectful and honest. If I'm in a real pinch he might even give me a local lift after I drop off my car. These guys specialize in quick, quality, straight forward service so if that's what your in the market for this is your place.

Yelp Review


Steve is extremely knowledgeable about German cars. He and his crew do very good work for a fair price. The best part of taking your car to Bavarian Auto House is knowing that you can trust Steve. He tells you what you need, what you don't need, and a huge plus is that he is very nice. I highly recommend taking your German car here.

Yelp Review


My passenger rear window stopped working properly & Steve fixed it right away! He gave me a great price & I had my car back in less than a few hours!

Yelp Review


I wish this place was closer to where I lived! I called to get some information on a part and the owner, Steve was so helpful. He knew I didn't live in the area and doesn't work on the part that I needed but still continued to give me information on the part and gave me honest, genuine, friendly advice! Great customer service!! If you live in the area, go see Steve!!

Yelp Review


Ok, can I give more then 5 stars!? I mean really, Steve is awesome, honest and quick. Made an appointment, he has me in and out on my Mercedes S550 in 30 min. Made a customer for life. Thanks Steve.

Yelp Review


Car died early am and steve came to meet me at my car to see if we could get it going and get it to the shop.. Wasn't able to get it start so I got it towed ( signed up for triple a and was able to use it right away for the tow) to his shop where he took care of me.. Was up front and to the point about what was needed and very informative.. There was a lot of worked performed and he worked with me... He also gave me a loaner to my surprise to get to work to salvage the rest of my day.. I found a new spot to get work done to my Beamer .. Thanks steve and crew for the work

Yelp Review


Very knowledgeable and straight forward. Will bring my car here again for future needs.

Yelp Review


Texted me a quote that was better then the dealer then called me suggested I could probably find the part cheaper online which I did and then charged me a really good rate for labor. Also was able to take me immediately once I had the part no waiting. He is very nice and I'm happy with the result saved me a lot of money!

Yelp Review


Bavarian Auto House was a talent search for a German mechanic shop. Steve is a friendly and interesting mechanic. Every car needs special care from a great mechanic and I believe I found him.. Thanks Steve

Yelp Review


Just had my 328 serviced, oil change and inspection. Took me in last minute, I hardly waited long. Provided a missing bolt or two and completed all requests. I'll return for future servicing.

Yelp Review


I couldn't be happier with the service I received. Steve is a great guy! Very humorous, down-to-Earth, and is straightforward. Not to mention, he's an excellent mechanic. He showed me the problem with my power steering hoses while my car was on the lift. I work very nearby, and he provided a loaner car for me to get back to work while he did the repairs. Work was done in a little over a couple of hours. The previous auto shop I visited would've taken most of the day, if not all day. And his price was less expensive than was quoted from the other shop, too! He also showed me the old parts and how bad the power steering fluid really was. Replacement parts were all OEM. Not that Chinese crap. I also loved his comment about my new serpentine belts that were installed by the other auto shop: 'Goodyear belts!?! That's Auto Zone shit! I only use OEM belts. Continental!' He then showed me his stock of Continental belts. He really schooled me there, but I really appreciated it. Now I know better. He's definitely my go-to mechanic now! Thanks, Steve!

Yelp Review


Great service. Very open, honest and transparent. I bought my car in for a service in the morning and picked it up that afternoon. Cheaper than the dealer. Shows the paperwork and parts that were used during the service. Highly recommend.

Yelp Review


Bavarian Auto House! ROCKS!! I called in this morning regarding a coolant leak. Steve without hesitation told me to stop by so he could take a closer look. When i arrived Steve was very helpful, very knowledgable and showed through his advice how passionate he is making sure you get the proper service for your car.

After the work was done, Steve took his time to show me the parts he replaced and gave me his honest advice on things to follow up on. This made me feel really comfortable and showed his trustworthiness. I will definitely be coming back for all my service work.

Thanks Steve for the great service and for personally willing to give me a ride back to work. The shuttle ride was an awesome experience...

Yelp Review


Brought my 2009 Jetta Sport Wagon in for an oil change and Steve called to let me know that the vacuum pump was leaking oil and that he has seen this problem before in VW's and said that I should call the manufacturer to see if there was a recall for this problem, since it seemed like a design/manufacturing issue. Well to cut to the chase there was no recall and we had to have Steve replace the defective part. It was really nice of Steve to suggest calling the manufacturer to try to help save us money. I will be taking my car from now on to have Steve work on it.

Yelp Review


Finally found a place that's honest and gives great customer service! I called in the same day for brake service on my 2004 E320. I even went with him to the local Mercedes Benz Dealership to get my rotors and brake pads. I thought that was great and it made me feel good knowing that he was using genuine Mercedes Benz Parts and without the crazy markup too! Steve is a straight up guy and he won't try to tell you to sell you on things you don't need. I have definitely found a new place that I will be taking my car to often and it's Bavarian Auto House. If you are driving a German car and your car is no longer under warranty and you take it any place other than this shop, I would tell you that you are crazy! Thanks again for the great work and service, Steve!!

Yelp Review


So happy with the service that it made me finally sign up for Yelp. This guy is a proper trustworthy mechanic who obviously loves what he does. Went in for a quick oil change on my '05 E46 BMW and while I was there I asked about a nagging front suspension issue I was having. He got it fixed right then and there!

Altruistic fellow as well... some guys across the street locked their keys in their truck and he ran over and managed to get the door open for them.

I've definitely found my new garage!

Yelp Review


Went here to get an oil change for my 535xi. They used good quality oil and a good quality filter. The price was very reasonable and everyone was friendly and helpful

Yelp Review


Steve is great! This is my one stop shop for my 328i. BMW's are not cheap to maintain but Steve knows his German cars and will always give you the best advice and prices. I will refer everyone here!

Yelp Review


Steve, Thanks for giving such a good customer service. I had a 325ci that had continuous engine light on. Recently I got T-boned and survived without a scratch but my BMW is gone. Glad to see all the 5-Stars...I will be back :-)

Yelp Review


It's a relief to find a repair shop I can now trust. Never tried to up-sale my repair. Honest fast service with a happy smile. Once your warranty is up on your BMW this is the place to bring it.

Yelp Review


My car outlived its service shop.

This is really a review of the last 30 years. When my 1983 Porsche 944 was acting up back in 1985, Joe, the then-owner of Bavarian Auto House, diagnosed the problem for free and recommended I get the oxygen sensor fixed under the extended emissions warrantee instead of paying him to fix it. This started a long, long relationship with this shop and my 944. Sadly, now at 311,000 miles, the 944 needs some major surgery, Joe retired, and this shop cannot service this old car. Sad. But time marches on. I cannot expect a shop to support at old niche car forever. Anyway, thank you Joe. And best wishes to Steve. I hope you run this shop just as well for the next 30 years.

Yelp Review


This is my go to shop when it comes to maintenance on my 325i. I no longer live in Orange County but the two hour drive to get service here is worth it. Steve is hilarious and super friendly and he is up front and fair about pricing and gives good and honest advice about what needs to be done. I always explore my options when it comes to pricing and Steve has always given me the best prices.

He is also accommodating and is personally willing to give you a ride if you need one - we recently went for a joy ride in the grim reaper (C63 AMG), which is an experience I would highly recommend.

Yelp Review


Took my mercedes there because my sunroof stopped working after installing a new battery. They ran diagnostics on it and figured out it was the alternator.

They replaced my alternator at a great price. Steve was very professional and Ill be bringing my car back for all of my future repairs.

Yelp Review


DO NOT GO ANYWHERE ELSE FOR YOUR AUTO REPAIR these guys are the nicest, cheapest most honest dudes in the biz. Super friendly and knowledgable and not condescending at all. Fixed my car in a few hours for a great price and even gave it a wash for me. Definitely going to be a customer of theirs for life. Definitely worth the drive if it's a trip for you. You don't come across shops like this every day. Great business it's no wonder it's the highest rated.

Yelp Review


I don't go anywhere else but Steve to service my wife's E320. Fast service, and Steve cracks me up every time :) I really enjoy taking the Benz here.

Awesome awesome repair shop!! If your looking for a honest place this is it. Steve the owner is helpful and honest !! Need I say more. Found the issue with my car for me super quick and had me out the door!!!

Yelp Review


Efficient & quick service for a fair price. Bonus is the loaner cars that are provided for long jobs. Our family saves money by coming here...we forgo paying $$$$ at the dealer for straightforward service.

Yelp Review


Brought in '06 BMW X5 for check engine light And he made sure everything else was in order. Didn't break the bank as bad as the Dealer.

Yelp Review


My 328I was acting up; I would be on the freeway and a few times it would feel like the car was dying (No power). I jumped on yelp on researched and finally found this place. I didn't want to take my car into the dealership as everything is overpriced. On my way to this place my car took a dump on me, I had it towed into the shop (Good thing for my AAA membership). As I arrived to the shop, Steve greeted me and asked how he can help. I explained how I would feel my car dying on the freeway (Lose power), so he hooked it and found out my fuel pump went out. He was shocked to hear that from a 2007, he called Shelly BMW and asked about it, he was told it's not common but it happens. He ordered a fuel pump, he asked if I wanted to wait or come back tomorrow. So I decided to return, to my surprise he had loaners. Fill it out paper and I was out.

Overall I had a great experience here. Work came with warranty, and I get a loaner. Win win for me. I would recommend this place. Prices are okay, better than dealership that's for sure.

Yelp Review


Steve gets it done at a reasonable price quickly and won't sell you shit you don't need. Don't expect polished floors, free pastries, or professionalism. Do expect great savings, OEM parts, quality service and a laugh or two. If you are faint hearted, do not ride in the AMG C63 courtesy vehicle. (I had a blast in it)...I recommend anyone with a BMW to come here once your factory warranty and maintenance plan is gone.

Yelp Review


Steve does it again.... I just called him for advice on my 2007 BMW that needs wheel alignment. He answered his cell and was on point with advice. So glad to have someone you can depend on. Good service even if you need a recommendation for a service he does not provide. I trust him. Loyal customer at Bavarian Auto House! :)

Yelp Review


I just started coming to Steve after buying an E90 and asking around for mechanic recommendations. Bavarian Auto House was recommended to me by a close friend so I brought in my whip to get it's battery replaced and a tune-up. He gave me a great price, educated me a bit on some of the repairs typical for the vehicle, and even fixed a few odds and ends while I was there. I can already tell I'll be a life long customer. Steve has a very no-nonsense, straight shooter personality which I like. Oh, and he knows his stuff. So here's to hoping I still have 5 stars to give in 5 years when my vehicle will really start needing his help.

Yelp Review


Before my 335i, I owned an Integra that turned into a bucket over time. I used to do all my own maintenance on that thing so this was my first experience at a shop and luckily for me it was a very good one.

I pulled into the shop and was immediately greeted by Steve. Steve is super friendly and outgoing, so you'll feel comfortable right away. I told him what might be wrong with the car and he showed me where the oil leak was coming from and showed me all the parts that were needed for the job. The way he spoke about the situation came off as very knowledgable so I knew I could trust him and his crew.

His entire crew was extremely helpful and gave me a ride to the bank... TWICE! His prices are seriously the best around and obviously better than the stealership. Even though his prices were unbeatable, he still used quality parts. I even went home and researched the oil and the brands he showed me that day just to confirm that my car was only getting the best.

Anyway, I have a couple other things to take care of before my car is in its best shape. I will definitely be back.

I have gone here for about year now. I have a 3.25i 2005 that was given to me by my sister. It wasn't taken care of to say the least. Steve and the employees have take good care of me and my BMW. There prices are very reasonable and he is very true mechanic, he takes the time to explain what is going on with the car. I also checked on forums, to reassure that the problems he is talking about is correct. He also has curtesy cars available to you while they work on your car. Thank you so very much for fixing my BMW Steve and all of the employees of Bavarian Auto house.

Yelp Review


If you're in the North OC area and need your BMW worked on, this is the place to go. Steve is an intense character but he's honest and gets the job done right. The prices are definitely reasonable and the quality is great. They don't use cheap parts here. Service was quick and pain free.

I've been here twice already (and that says a lot!). First time was for transmission fluid change and the second was for differential fluid change. Both, times I've left satisfied and happy with the work done.

You won't be disappointed

Yelp Review


I have been bringing my 2007 VW Rabbit to BAH for several years now and have yet to experience a single issue. Unbelievably competitive pricing, signature service, and craftsmanship that far exceeds that of many dealerships I've had the displeasure of dealing with. I can honestly say that Steve puts his best foot forward in maintaining the integrity of the customer experience. I'd put Steve and his crew up against any of the local European dealerships in a heartbeat!

Yelp Review


Steve is awesome! I took my bmw 525 xi to him because she was sick. I will look no further for a mechanic! Steve and his crew took great care of my baby! Thanks Steve! ;-)

Yelp Review


Brought my 535i to Steve and his crew today and I was very surprised. I'm used to going into a mechanic shop and leaving with a lighter wallet and a sour taste in my mouth - figuratively speaking!! Lol.

Drove right up and drove right out with a smile in my face. I can really tell the quality of work just by the quality of parts they use. I would highly recommend Steve and his shop!

Yelp Review


I think I was one of Joe's original clients back n 1984 when I rolled in with my 1974 Convertible VW bug. I have faithfully taken every BMW and Mercedes that I have owned as well as a few other cars here since, and I can tell you that I have always been happy with every aspect of my experience. When Steve bought the business from Joe when he retired, the transition and service was seamlessly well done. I couldn't recommend any auto shop higher than I recommend Bavarian Auto House.

Yelp Review


Recommend Bavarian if you are looking for honest and great service. Took my 528i for new battery and pleasantly surprised to see that there are still some honest mechanics out there. Replaced the battery and inspected my car and provided some feedback regarding its condition. Looks like my BMWs found their new doctor.

Steve is the man! Kudos to the whole crew there as well.

Make sure you go to the right shop as well! Rolled over to Bavarian in Fullerton and man was I glad that I originally drove to the wrong shop. Good thing they showed me my way to Bavarian (Steve's shop) in Anaheim where I was greeted with great positive energy and service.

Love the way Steve keeps it real. Cheers and will be back soon bro!

By far and away THE best auto shop for BMW's. Good prices, GREAT service and knowledgable staff. They seem to go the extra mile each time I bring my car in for service. It is really hard to trust service shops. But I have never felt that way with these guys. It's a hidden treasure for BMW drivers. Go here.

Yelp Review


Honest, Knowledgeable, and Great Costumer Service!!

Added bonus - My service came with a loaner 525i so I could get back to work. Steve showed me hands on where my engine oil leak was coming from and quickly fixed the problem for a fraction of what BMW quoted me. Steve also pointed out a few maintenance issues that if go unfixed, could lead to a more costly repair down the road. We hooked up my e46 to the diagnostic machine and found a bad o2 sensor which was causing a rough idle. We replaced that and now my car runs great!! I will be back for all my repairs and preventive maintenance needs.

Yelp Review


Two people you need most in California is a good lawyer and an honest mechanic. I am glad I found Joe and his team 5 years ago. My father is a mechanic and I grew up learning what to look out for, so when I finally found this place I knew it was legit.

My BMW is about 10 yrs old now and random things always come up. When I took it in to replace my left tail light, Joe told me nothing was wrong with it and sent me home without charge. I soon found out it was in recall. Other mechanics would 'fix' it Joe said it wasn't a problem. That's trust.

So when I came by for my oil change, I found out Joe will be retiring. While I am sad to see him go I was assured that everyone else will stay. So far so good guys

Been meaning to write this review for a while- so I went back to Steve et al a few months ago after my first great experience w/my Honda (which was a great experience) and brought them my Toyota 4Runner. I have a 2003 4Runner w/low mileage and wanted a 'sanity check' on how it was doing. After looking at everything, Steve said everything looks good and nothing needed to be done, not until a few more thousand miles at least. How about that? Never left an auto repair place without paying anything...Steve even poured windshield fluid for me into the 4Runner which he said was the only thing that was low. He even printed an invoice that showed $0.00 he has OCD with documentation). Love this place. And Steve, last time I saw you, you had a short buzz haircut. You look better with longer hair man. Take care.

Yelp Review


First off, I want to throw in a disclosure and let you know this is only for the customer service, knowledge, and equipment available at this shop. I do most of my own work with the limitation of engine rebuilding and such but not too long ago I was working a 525i and after replacing the abs module the lights on the dash would not go away.

I did a quick search and found this place, pulled up into the small driveway and my uncertainties about the location I had arrived at were soon gone when I met one of the workers (name forgotten sorry) and he said he would erase my brake and abs light code shortly with his machine.

I stuck around for about 30 minutes while he got around to me and in that time I realized how much these guys know their stuff and how helpful their equipment is in diagnosing European cars. He had people going in and out of there and all of his diagnosis were spot on.

The time arrived when it was time to plug in the reader to the 525s diagnosis port, I was shown all the monitors the reader was displaying and he went on to erase the module code. I was very impressed and satisfied with the attention given at this shop and their positive attitudes. I haven't needed their services again yet but this would be the place I'd recommend to anyone with a bimmer or other European car. Knowing how different these cars' needs can be, take it to someone who specializes in the field; Bavarian Auto House.

Yelp Review


I took my 99 BMW 323CI for an O2 sensor replace since it won't come off of the exhaust. Great service and it was quick.
Since it was my first time there, Steve scan the car for fault codes and let me know what was wrong with the car. I usually do small jobs myself, but whatever jobs I can't do myself, I will take my car to the Bavarian Auto House.

Yelp Review


These two guys know how to treat the customer well and will also give a fair deal when it comes to pricing. I had my rear wheel bearings replaced on a 2004 325i at a cost of $325 a piece. My car was done by lunchtime and it ran perfectly afterwards. Steve and his brother are very attentive, will crack jokes to make you feel comfortable and really know how keep a customer. I will definitely come back for any major repairs on my car.

Yelp Review


I'M DEFINITELY COMING BACK!!!!

Steve was very knowledgeable and honest when it came to my 2008 BMW 328i. My dealer gave me a laundry list of things that needed to be fixed on my car (~$3500). I gave the list to Steve and he told me i didn't need any of the service just yet. WHUT?!?! and here, i was thinking about selling my beloved BMW!! I just needed routine brake fluid change and he gave me a very good price on that one!

Even before he took my name down, he ran a whole diagnostic on my car using his fancy computer thingymajigger. He was able to fix some stuff that dealer forgot to reset/update. That was pretty cool.

He originally told me the wait would be 1-1.5 hr to get the job done, but he got it done within 20 min!!! He was very accommodating and attentive. He was great =)

And finally, Steve seemed he really enjoys what he does. He has really good relationship with his existing customers (from what i perceived while i was there). He has a quite a sense of humor and definitely a passion for his German cars. I'm so glad I found him! Thanks Steve!

Yelp Review


So here's the story. I own a 1997 bmw 328i that I bought from a doctor a little over a year ago that now has over 200k on it.

I made the sinful mistake of taking it to pepboys for it's first oil change and check up while in my possession. Long story short, it was a HORRIBLE experience. From the numb customer service, to the shoddy mechanical work.

So, after looking around on Yelp, I found Bavarian Auto House! I called these guys about a month ago regarding a simple oil change and the owner Steve was able to answer all of my questions and even recommended a few things. They were also able to take my car in the same day I called!

I just got done watching my car being worked on and even the mechanic was helpful in answering all my questions!

Steve and his brother are also very knowledgeable in what they are doing and even crack some jokes to help you pass the time lol

I will be bringing my car back for more oil changes and engine work in the future! I highly recommend this place to all German car owners! Great business!

Yelp Review


I should have wrote this a while ago. Steve helped me find a rattle that was going on in the rear of my car best part was he found it and didn't charge me anything that was great. He also noticed that my belts were worn and needed to be replaced so he did and charged me a fair price thanks Steve.

Yelp Review


I took my BMW coupe to get a oil change and an inspection last week.
Very attentive and gave me a hands on approach in showing me what repairs were needed. They were upfront in telling me what was wrong and what could use improvements but never pressured me.
Their prices were good and we'll be taking my car back there again!

Yelp Review


Honest, upfront, and no upselling; these were the reasons why I chose to come to Bavarian Auto House vs. any other place with equally great reviews (and closer proximity). I had called the day before to ask some questions and schedule an appointment. Both Steve and Rob were very helpful and their brief, but honest and helpful, conversations was what convinced me to give this place a try.

I've always been a DIY or dealer service girl myself, but after reading the reviews on the service departments at ALL nearby dealers (let me save you the trouble: 3.5 stars for Crevier in Santa Ana (but bias toward their customers only/customers with warranty), 3 for Shelley, 2.5 stars for Monrovia, Irvine, and Ontario), I felt unsure if they would honestly check all the things they were supposed to. Approaching my 100k and no more warranty/all car expenses being out of pocket, I needed things checked and an honest estimate of what I would NEED (of course I WANT to fix everything, but that doesn't mean that I can).

In the end, I spent more than my initial budget but fixed probably twice of what I had expected to while also getting my car inspected. Now I can drive with ease, knowing that my car is all up to date. For my next check up (or, you know, indefinitely), this will be the place to go to. Parts and labor is also warrantied!

My favorite part about Bavarian was how Steve had me inspect my car alongside him. I thought it was unique that they were closed on weekends, but I think that's great, since it does seem like a family business, and that he would be spending his weekends with his family. On that note, I work in Yorba Linda and I recognized that their business had been left on my car. I hadn't made the connection 'til I took a business card at the establishment and matched the two! I definitely appreciate a fellow hard-working individual.

As my tip indicated, they have courtesy vehicles here (you should confirm that if you need it though). Make sure you return the car with the appropriate gas level!

Yelp Review


I just want to say best place ever to bring your BMW once the service contract has expired.

Other repair shops need to mimic their service policy as I will return if anything else comes up rather than even looking for another place. Every other time after having service on my car I look for a new place because I always feel I am being screwed over and being screwed over for repairs on a BMW is not like repairs on a Honda!

I came in for a routine service and paid for a routine service AND THEN WENT HOME!!! No the sky is falling routine. No I need to sell a kidney. No upselling at all.

So thanks Steve. You have a customer for life!

Yelp Review


Wow- what a great guy the owner is and what great service. I completely planned to spend a significant amount for repairs and my issue ended up being something very small and the cost was minimal.

When people on here said there was no upselling, they really meant it. No upselling whatsoever. They have a customer for life in me and I will refer anyone I can.

What a concept. Be honest and retain customers.

I think I am so shocked at not being screwed over at a repair place that this is so refreshing.

Yelp Review


I love honest service and to know that they are not doing anything you don't need and this is the place.

Never try to give you more than you need. They will let you know if it can wait a bit as I think they understand not everyone has endless money.

I have been a customer for many, many years and I don't plan to go anywhere.

Thanks to everyone here for taking care of my car that takes care of me!

Yelp Review


From the moment I called Steve and his guys helped me out BIG time. My alternator belt broke on my way home from work after calling numerous repair facilities and getting an outrageous estimate and the usual 'we can't do anything till tomorrow' statement I called Steve he promptly gave me a price for parts and labor and advised me to bring my vehicle there. Once I showed up I was met with a friendly handshake and they promptly took a look at my car and quoted me a price to replace 3 belts. After about 15 minutes they informed me that my alternator had seized up causing my belt to snap. He then showed me that alternator would not turn and allowed me to try and turn it myself with no luck he then called and got an alternator on its way to finish work. My whole stay was stressful but the service relaxed me knowing that I was being taken care of. I left with a new alternator and three belts and enough money to buy a few Christmas presents for the kids. I recommend Steve and Bavarian Auto House to anyone and if you don't believe me try them you won't be disappointed. Thanks Steve me and my family are grateful for people like you without your help I would of had to miss a day of work and spend all my Christmas money on my car we appreciate you and your crew

Yelp Review


I started taking my 2007 BMW here after the maintenance package expired. I'm so glad that I didn't renew my maintenance package and I'm even more glad that I found Bavarian Auto House,

Steve is a great guy who's honest about what your car needs and doesn't need, and about the cost. He charges WAY under what the dealer charges and does a great job! Also, he gets your car back to you as quickly as possible! He really provides outstanding service.

I would definitely recommend Bavarian Auto House to anyone with a BMW.

Yelp Review


Super cool, Honest, Up front guys

Would not hesitate to recommend this place.

When I needed a repair they gave me a print out of the diagnoses (that was awesome).

This place is no pressure and they dont try to up-sell you at all.

5 stars.

Yelp Review


Great place even if you don't drive a German car.

We have two Honda Accords and a Toyota Corolla and get all our preventive maintenance and repairs done here.
Sometimes if one of our cars is having a problem like brakes or power steering, I have had them diagnosed at other shops to make sure the car is safe or if we need to get it fixed right now. The last few times I've done this and then gotten the car into Bavarian, the quote for parts and labor is always less.

So, bottom line is no matter what kind of car you drive the crew at Bavarian will take very good care of you and you won't get 'taken for a ride' price-wise. Plus, I have found out from their customers who drive Mercedes, BMW or Audi have saved hundreds of dollars over dealer mechanic service, and the work is just as good!

Yelp Review


I took my mom's BMW here and had a great experience!

They were up front about costs, helped to explain everything.

and even things like staying open for a few extra minutes for me because I was having difficulty finding a ride over.

Great customer service, knowledgable, competitive pricing!

Yelp Review


Wow. You want a good place to get your VW serviced? This is the place. Taking my new-to-me Eurovan to them that needed some major work, I was leery at first. I soon learned that Steve and his helpful staff are honest at what they do, fixing things they know need fixing and admitting when their own knowledge of a 20-year-old car is done rather than taking more money from me.

I appreciate BAH's easygoing spirit, honest fixing and family-ran-business environment.

Yelp Review


Great service. Experts of their craft. Well priced. Quality parts. I always take my car here!

Yelp Review


I've taken my BMW M5 here for a full clutch replacement, replace my oil separators and most recently to replace my lower control arms, bushings and replace a few hoses. I can honestly say Steve is a great guy, he even cut my rotors for free. They offer free shuttle and loaner cars as well.

He even gave me a ride in his E55 AMG and red Saleen. Awesome cars. I will never let anybody touch my car but him from now on. Thanks a lot.

Yelp Review


Great, quick, realiable service. I take my headache of a car, a 1991 audi 90 20v to them and they seem to be able to take care of what ever i throw at them with a quick return and a reasonable price.

Yelp Review


I originally took my Mercedes to the dealership in Anaheim Hills to get an estimate for a repair to my sunroof, which mysteriously stopped working after a battery change. They charged me $159 to give me an estimate of $6000 dollars.... telling me that they needed to tear down the car to figure out the problem!

After reading positive reviews on Yelp, I took the car to BAH and Steve and the rest of the staff were very helpful. The mechanic that works there really knows his stuff. They fixed the problem in 1 hour and only charged me $90!

I highly recommend them! I won't be going back to the dealership for any services for my car anymore!
Thanks Steve and crew!

Yelp Review


These guys are top notch. They picked me up after the work was done and charged me literally hundreds less than the dealership wanted. Go here you won't regret it. Personable, knowledgable, and to top it off reasonable prices.

Yelp Review


The best service I have had at least there are honest people like steve, joe, and Dave I would recommend this place to anyone

Yelp Review


I have been going here for about 3 years now after I moved to Fullerton. I was looking for someone reliable and honest to take care of my bmw.

I have had a new radiator, muffler mounts, hoses, brakes, belts, oil changes, gasket nuts, seatbelt issues, sunroof issues, and anything under the sun at Bavarian Auto House. I always pay less than I ever anticipate.

Also, they are happy to show you your old broken parts after they are done with any work; and explain everything they did.

Thank you so much!!

Yelp Review


Want a free lunch or a free shirt?

Well, It's not actually free it's just extra money you'll have if you avoid going to your Benz, BMW, or Audi dealer if you get the job done here.

I don't know too much about the repairs of this place, but I sure found a place that I can do my expensive oil changes.

So I got a pretty sick Audi, and I didn't want to take it to the dealership to get an oil change because it cost $130. So I took it to Joe who only charged me $80, which gives me an extra $50 to have some sushi. It did take 3 hours, but I totally understand that this place isn't a Jiffy Lube, and plus I was running around doing errands anyway, but it sure saved me $50.

Yelp Review


had our Benz serviced here and they are as honest as it gets!

After fixing a couple of things, our car ran like it never did before! (we got it used)

after a while and over 100k miles, the car eventually needed to some repairs. Joe diagnosed the car, then called us BEFORE he did any repairs to go over what was wrong and if we wanted to move forward. it's so refreshing to know you can trust your mechanic when these euro vehicles can be money pits if taken to the wrong shop.

just wished i lived closer to them.

Yelp Review


I own 2 Porsche 911s and 2 Boxsters. My wife and I refuse to take it anywhere else but to Joe. I've been to lots of mechanics and can truely say he is one if the most honest and well educated mechanics around. After speaking with him and his mechs I realized why they are good at what they do and good to customers. Joe treats his staff extremely well and provides benefits, his staff are all happy, takes great pride in their work, and looks at each other as a family. That being said Bavarian has always fix every issue most of the time at half the cost of other mechanics. For example I was charged $600 parts and labor to replace a Porsche coolant tank which is expensive enough already. However, other shops wanted to charge me $1100 parts and labor.

Another great thing about this shop is many of us have busy schedules so Joe provides a shuttle service so by the end of the day my car is ready and hassle free.

Finally other Mechanics I found will tell my wife anything and she will believe it since she doesn't know anything about cars. How do I know this? I had her turn on the recording on her iPhone and handed the info to the Bureau of Automotive Repairs. Joe however has corrected what others Mechs have told her and kept her from spending thousands in false work. So basically women who don't know anything about cars and not mechanical at all can feel perfectly safe and not worry about getting ripped off.
