  • I brought my Mercedes C320 here to get some maintenance done. Paul is a complete expert - very fair pricing and great service. I would highly recommend Dufour!

  • Dufour is a class act place. I have never been treated so well by a company. Nick was very helpful and worked with me throughout the weekend to try and figure out a solution to my car's issue. They took great pains to try and get me a fair price for the parts and repair. They are about 60-70% of dealer costs. I have recommended them to my friends that own Audi. Great work guys!

    First off, not the easiest place to find. Signage needs a little work, just ask them details on how to get to the shop. It's in the back of a warehouse looking thing.

    We all know that fixing these things isn't cheap, and my 4.8L X5 is no exception. The difference with Dufour is that they spell everything out up front, and give you the full list of everything that needs work. Then they give you the timeline on when it needs to be done, or if it is cosmetic. The expertise was evident from start to finish.

    If you are looking for a fancy place with lattes in the waiting room, this isn't your guy. If you want to drop your car off and know it will be treated right for a fair price, it is.
