  • The car is running great and for what it is worth I feel perfectly confident that the Renn Haus is the only capable business to take care of my vehicle - that includes the BMW dealership. I will highly recommend this company to friends and acquaintances.

  • I am very satisfied with Renn Haus. They perform the work that we agree to without finding additional work to do that may not be needed. Their staff is courteous & professional. The facilities are well maintained. They had my car ready when they said they would.

  • Everyone who owns a vehicle wants it serviced at a place where they can trust individuals who work there, and know that their vehicle is being worked on by qualified and expert mechanics. Renn Haus is such an establishment. Their management and staff makes you feel like family. I'm glad I found them.

    We took our 2002 BMW 325i in to Renn Haus auto repair at 6244 Clark Center Ave Sarasota Fl for a oil change on 7/21/2017 and also had the replacement of the oil filter stand gasket and a new oil filter kit with O ring, the cost was $566.44, they had kept the car overnight. The next morning Renn Haus called from 941-922-3600 and said the car was ready. Upon arrival the sales person Mitchell said, oops, there was another problem. It appears that in putting the parts back together that morning the mechanic had used a power ratchet on the bolts to the Vanos camshaft adjuster solenoid and over tightened with a power ratchet and cracked the cast iron housing of the Vanos camshaft adjuster solenoid. Mitchell claimed there must have been a hair line crack in the Vanos camshaft adjuster solenoid that we did not know about and it was not there fault, they put some epoxy in the crack ans sent us on our way. They gave us a quote of $1,500 to correct what appears to be their mistake. On 7/26/2017 we took the 2002 BMW 325i to a reputable BMW auto shop and they looked at the cracked Vanos camshaft adjuster solenoid and told us the only way that could have happened is if the "mechanic" over tightened with a power ratchet and cracked the cast iron housing of the Vanos camshaft adjuster solenoid. You do not ever use power tools on sensitive and cast iron housings in the BMW engine. Do not let Renn Haus work on your car!
