Baron’s owns the diagnostic tools required to correctly analyze your BMW. The star diagnostic tool for the Mercedes and the autologic for the Mini Coopers and BMWs. Also, the shop has accumulated numerous tools specific to the needs of your auto. Not long after moving to California he had the opportunity to purchase tools and manuals from a BMW dealership in Arizona that was closing. And, in 2007 an independent Mercedes shop sold its inventory and MBZ specific tools to Baron’s. The shop has continued to maintain up to date tools and manuals. The technicians attend seminars and workshops throughout the year to stay abreast of latest developments.

Meet Our Owner David

David Baron, owner and president of Baron’s Foreign Car Service, has worked in the field of automotive repair for all of his adult life. After attending a technical program in Los Angeles he obtained employment at a BMW dealership. During this time he began repairing some vehicles at his home and established a clientele. It wasn’t long before it was apparent that a facility of his own was necessary. In 1989 he purchased the current site.

  • Baron's is our BMW service home. They are such an honest and professional people, and always give the very best service, with no hidden agenda.

    We switch to Baron's after our all inclusive cover with BMW was finished. We never looked back.

    There was one time, where Baron's diagnose that the problem we had was covered in BMW recall, so without any charge they forward us to BMW service, and we got it covered.

    If you wish to be in professional hand, get personal service and pay fair prices, we recommend Baron's!

  • I have been going to this shop for over 20 years and I can tell you it's top notch. They are super nice, it's extremely clean and they have been in the same location for 20 plus years. A business just doesn't stick around that long if they aren't doing something right.

  • Fast forward two years. The old BMW is gone and the new old BMW is here. I contacted David while shopping; he provided great insight and guidance on what specific things to check when buying our new old Z3. His advice, given freely, was spot-on. Took the car in for its first service and my first visit in nearly 2 years. The shop has scaled down in size a bit and there are new faces. Jessica, training as a service writer, is a 2nd generation staffer (Linda's daughter) who brings great communication skills with a courteous demeanor and the same willingness to do a deep-dive to find the right parts and the right numbers to put together solid estimates. Hector is the new technician. Professional, to the point, fixing things I didn't know were broken (and a few things I did but didn't tell them about.) He gently suggested I save my money by not doing things I thought might need doing, but didn't.

    I came back to Baron's because of good past experience. I'll keep coming back because of good present experiences.
