About Our Owner Ralph Foglein

Ralph Foglein listened to his father when he told him the secret of success; Son to be successful you have to find what you like to do and be the best. If you always strive to be honest, deliver an outstanding product. You will do well.

Since the automobile was what I was infatuated by, I focused on learning everything i could since the age of 14. At the age of 16 I was already enrolled in an automotive training program at De Anza College. After graduating high school I was excepted to the three year Auto Tech Program at De Anza and was one of the top student. I still attend update training on a regular basis and have the latest diagnostic tools for the new modern cars that we service.

You won't be disappointed in the service that you get at my shop. I will personally see to it.


  • Friendly and professional staff (Cliff & Jason). I didn't meet the mechanic that worked on my car, but since it is running well now, I am assuming that he did a good job. I am planning to use your service while I have this car.

  • I'm very pleased with European Auto Works, Ralph and his team went the extra miles to fix my 2004 BMW 330CI. I highly recommend this place to anyone. Again, Thank you Ralph and your team!

  • This is an outstanding group. I never felt better about leaving my car and knowing I was getting an honest assessment. This is a pretty knowledgeable and professional group. I can't recommend them enough.

  • I had taken cars to other shops that just out for a buck. I have taken my BMW to EAW before with good results. The shop had been recommended to me by a technician at BMW of MT. View. My experience with this shop has always been very good

  • I have an older car I use as a "daily driver" a back-up so to speak, it's a 2002 BMW 330 with over 105k miles on it. A collection of problems had arisen and the European Auto Works team efficiently confirmed the availability of parts and went on to fix all the problems in a single day, without a hitch, as usual; everything seems just right. In my experience, this kind of dependability is rare. I've worked with EAW for years and years. Thank you EAW for being a trusted shop in a world where trustworthy is hard to find.

  • Very courteous, professional, convenient (drop-off and pick up) and as a new customer they provided me with an overall view of the health of my car, options and pricing. I prefer EAW's minimalist approach at the front desk, I've been to other car shops that have big, decorated lobbies, offer no useful amenities and cut corners on the real job.

  • I broke down while traveling through late in the evening. Despite not having an appointment these guys were on the job first thing in the morning. The quoted a very reasonable price and did an excellent job keeping me informed on the progress of my repair. They went above and beyond. I can recommend they without reservation.

  • New tires (needed badly) and battery (preventive at our request) for our Toureg. We are always so pleased with the work the group at EAW does! We trust them implicitly with our vehicles. They repair what's needed and recommend what should be taken care of. Excellent communication, the car was clean, and ready before expected!

  • Who knew that new TPMs would provide such happiness to my silly life? Well, apparently Cliff knew! Easy appointment, timely repair, instrument panel error GONE.

    Cathy & Larry S.
  • Ralph diagnosed the problem via telephone, accommodated me in the afternoon, bused me home and fixed the problem. And the charge was reasonable. One could not ask more more in a mechanic!!
