  • Excellent staff! Very clean and well organized shop compared to others that I have been to. I priced out several independent shops and this was the best price. I was explained the issue, the estimated cost, and it was on target. Manny, the main tech, is extremely professional, courteous, knows his BMWs like the back of his hand, and has well over a decade of professional experience and is factory trained.

  • Awesome independent shop with knowledgeable staff! The owner (Manny) took his time to tell me, show me pictures and describe to me as what issues my BMW was having! After giving BBM the green light to complete the repairs needed and services needed on my BMW, I got it back within a day, running just like new when I bought it! Thanks BBM.

  • My car started vibrating really bad when I started it and many lights on the dash were on. I called several shops and they all would not offer advice. Called Bavarian Built and Manny said it was probably an injector. He took the time to explain the problem. I took it in and he was right. Fixed it the same day! Great shop!

    I absolutely love Barvarian Built Motors! I always recommend them to anyone with a BMW or Mini looking for a trustworthy shop. Manny is always very straightforward with all the issues my car may have and what is of the upmost importance to fix and what can wait a little if I don’t want to go all in on the work. I’ve been taking my M3 to him since I got the PPI done by them 3 years ago and I really don’t trust any other shop! They do my oil changes and all my mods, I’ve done headers to exhaust, intakes, steering rack and all power steering, replaced my radiator along with accompanying hoses, and all the little things you can think of on an E46.

    If you’re in the Burbank/Glendale/NoHo/WeHo/LA Area take your car to Barvarian Built! I couldn’t ever recommend this shop enough.

    Went to investigate a check engine light. Got it fixed same day. Manny was very thorough in explaining the issue so I could understand what needed to be done. The shop is spotless and the prices are very reasonable. Highly recommend Bavarian Built Motors.

    Bottom Line:

    I'm really glad that I brought my car to Bavarian Built Motors. The owner took care of me and my car for a very reasonable price. Now I have a shop that I can trust to do great work and treat me with respect. I will always take my cars to Manny over at Bavarian Built Motors.

    Detailed Review:

    I have been having some performance issues with my car for the last few months. It has been running very sluggish. I brought my car to Bavarian Built Motors because I heard really great things from friends that have been going to Manny for years.

    I arrived to BBM and talked to the owner (Manny). He is a very friendly and knowledgeable mechanic. He had worked for BMW for something like 15+ years. He explained the diagnoses that he would do and assured me that he would do his best to take care of the car and would call me before charging me anything more than what we agreed to.

    He made me feel comfortable and didnt talk down to me or over my head like I was some idiot.

    Within a day, he was able to diagnose the issue. He sent me pictures of the problem and told me what the cost would be to fix it. I called around to find out what others would charge based on his diagnose and everyone else (including BMW) was charging much more. So I told Manny to go ahead and fix the car.

    Within a day, I had my car back working like it was brand new. No more sluggish motor. No more unresponsive acceleration. I was extremely happy with my car performance and especially happy with the price and the customer service.

    BBM might not be a fancy dealership, but the customer service is definitely better.
