What do doctors, lawyers, teachers, students, senior citizens, single parents, stay-at-home moms, farmers, and professional athletes all have in common?? 1. None of them have time to waste. 2. All of them want to make educated decisions when it comes to their car. 3. All of them could use a friend in the automotive business that looks out for their best interests by helping them make good decisions and performing quality work at a reasonable price. That’s who we are. That’s what we do.

  • John and Jeff are awesome guys with integrity and a wealth of knowledge. They understand owning BMWs, VW, Mercedes, etc aren’t inexpensive and their work gives you incredible value. BMW of Louisville told me I needed 10,000$ for a new engine, after charging me one hour of labor, they saved me almost $8,00 by not be lazy. They replaced a camshaft and valve cover and I’m back on the road! Thanks!

  • I've worked with owner John Kephart for years and trust him with my BMWs and Mini. He knows his stuff, but just as important you can trust him! Highly recommend.

  • This mechanic shop is in a great location, right off Hurstbourne/Plantside area. I feel like I can trust them not to rip me off when giving me advice about my car. I definitely will call them again if I need any work done on my BMW. This place provided a second opinion & $800 saved - I’m glad I got it.
    When I took my car in, they provided clear information & I had my car back in no time. I will recommend them to anyone I know that drives a BMW, Benz or Mini.

    Bought my car to GermanTech after hitting some road debris and damaging my suspension. I am glad to say that it has been fixed and I have the upmost confidence in their work. I will only take my cars to them from now on and would highly recommend them for service or repair needs.

    I have dealt with Jeff and a John at GermanTech a few times on a number of my vehicles. Very reasonable prices on a marque that can really command outrageous charges from other shops or dealerships. One of only 2 shops in Louisville I would ever take my BMW. They have been in the business locally for many years and it shows. Thanks.

    Owning and taking care of a 2011 M3 is a team effort. Having a service team that understands your passion and protects your investment is priceless and was a big part of my purchase decision. Jeff Byrn and his team at GermanTech MotorWorks, LLC gave me the confidence to buy a 9 year old car that I know will need honest, knowledgeable, and professional care to keep running at its best. I highly recommend this shop for all your BMW service needs!

    Im in absolute awe at not only the quality of work but the customer service of this shop. extremely down to earth. extremely fair pricing. mom/pops feel (if it takes less time well charge you less) type deal. A++ across the board. This will be my permanent go to shop for all my foreign cars. By far a surreal experience. Thank you so much for taking care of my baby.
