  • Manny is the Absolute Best! Having never owned a BMW prior to my visit, I took my recently acquired 1989 E30 Convertible (from a previous owner who failed in fulfilling routine maintenance over the years) to Mota Autohaus for diagnostics and was immediately met with honesty and integrity upon speaking with Manuel over-the-phone and in-person. He gave me an accurate turnaround time and told me when I could expect to hear an update from him. A short time later , Manny gave me a diagnosis of everything needed to get my E30 mechanically proper! I will not hesitate to recommend Mota Autohaus to anyone needing to get their BMW serviced in Birmingham!

    Driving BMWs for 40 years we now own two, an 18 year old BMW E46 and a 29 year old BMW E30. Before finding Mota Autohaus older BMW maintenance was definitely a problem, I've lost count of the ripoffs and horror stories using 3 other local shops in particular. Manuel always does what he promises, fixes it CORRECTLY and there are NO cheap "knock off" parts, only QUALITY OEM parts. There's no "Bait & Switch" GOTCHAS when the Final Invoice comes, the estimates hold up when it's time to pay. Thanks for your Expertise Manuel! brian

    I’ve never been made to feel more comfortable at an auto shop. I’m a woman who deals with car troubles from time to time, not always knowing if I’m being taken for more than I *need* to have done. At Mota Autohaus, Manny took the time to explain to me what was happening and what needs to be done to resolve the issue. He definitely knows his stuff! Will be using them exclusively going forward!

    I would definitely recommend this place! I have a 2003 530i that needed more work than I could do myself. I knew after watching a few YouTube videos that it was out of my league. This place fixed it for a reasonable price. I am extremely pleased. I wouldn't have a second thought in taking my car back here. There is a reason this place has 5 stars on google!
