  • Simply the best in Birmingham. If you have a BMW in need of service, this is the place. Manny has super magical special powers including turning dirty oil clean just by looking at it. I’ve personally witnessed him raise E30s from the dead.

    Manny is a very good and honest person. I've taken my BMW M6 to him every time my car has had a problem or for regular oil change, and I've never been disappointed once. Highly recommended!!!!

    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!

    Manuel was awesome, very knowledgeable and honest. I had many issues with my BMW that he fixed in a very timely manner and was very fair with pricing. He also gave me recommendations for parts and advice relating to the track. The waiting room is also cool. This is THE place to bring your BMW!

    I couldn't have been blessed with a better mechanic than Manny and crew. He sorted out my nightmare of a project E30 very timely. If I could give more than 5 stars I would. Thanks Manny.
