  • 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

  • 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!

    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!
