    If you're looking for competent, trustworthy, professional, thorough and patient, friendly, "no nonsense" service for your Bimmer within the greater NJ, NY, DE, Philadelphia area, look no further. AND I COME ALL THE WAY FROM VIRGINIA, because they were so highly recommended by one of my best friends. Dan, Matt and everyone at MD are truly there to help you achieve your service goals. I started with my '04 X5 4.8is and will be following up with my '98 Z3 2.8 roadster... Don't wait too long to contact them, because I made "first contact" about 3 years ago and had to wait until some of their long-term clients moved out of the area. They're an extremely CLEAN, "small", intimate shop. This means they can give you and your Bimmer the full attention that it deserves. As an internationally published automotive photographer (, I'm now on the Board of the Society of Automotive Historians (SAH,, of which I've been a member since 1996. So, I'm very particular about who is allowed to be intimate with my vehicles. In fact, I'll be talking with them about my '96 Mercedes-Benz E300, which is the first year for that particular body style. In 5 years, it will be 25 years old, which will officially make it a classic. I also have a classic '86 Kenworth K100e class 8, 425 bhp CAT powered, 13 spd manual cabover that I will soon be using to transport vintage and classic vehicles, primarily from Florida up and down the I-95 corridor. No, MD won't be working on this beast. However, I will be looking for a shop of equal caliber to help me keep this classic on the road, too!

    I was driving from Boston to Florida and my car broke down on the NJ Turnpike. Fortunately I had the good fortune to find Matt on my iPhone and he stayed late for my tow truck to arrive to his shop and even arranged for a lovely B&B for me to stay. He promptly and thoroughly fixed the issues with my car and is truly a very good person who went more out of his way to help me. I only wish he was located in my neighborhood!

    Outstanding service. My 2003 525i needed a lot of work done because it was running rough and stalling. They found and replaced everything that had failed, and even did a full look over of the car and told me what repairs I should plan for in the coming years.

    Will definitely come back when I need more work done!!

    I brought my car there at the recommendation of a friend (thank you, Keith!). The dealership told me I needed new axle seals and cautioned me on the valve gasket. Matt determined it only needed a new valve gasket and recommended I replace the air flow at some point, but it was not urgent. The axle seals were fine!! Matt prevented me from spending money on something that was not necessary so I can spend it on something I actually need down the road. I will never bring my car anywhere else and wish I had known about MD Motorwerke before! If you are looking for someone HONEST, PROFESSIONAL and EXPERIENCED who will give you quality service for a good price take your car to Matt and Dan. They are trustworthy and really nice people. My Z4 found a new "home".

    Just tell them the problem u have, leave the keys and wait inside. No drama, no lies, no scam. Hard to find good and honest people. I drive 100 miles each way from Jersey City everytime I need a repair. Nobody knows these cars better than the Matt, Dan and Steve. Period. They deserve every dollar they earn.

    Great shop, these guys know their stuff, very honest and hard working. No BS, they just give you the facts. I took my 740iL w/Sport Package there to get it checked out and a list of work I wanted done, everything was handled very professionally and at reasonable prices. Top of the line shop, they go the xtra mile to do a good job and great attention to detail. They were recommended to me by a friend and now I recommend them to everyone I know. Wish I knew they were there sooner !

    After reading the reviews of MD I decided to bring my 2006 325ci in for service. Another shop told me that my rear differential was leaking and quoted me what I believed to be a very high price, they also failed to investigate a noise that I reported to them - claiming they didn't hear it, the car had been making a rattle when driven at low speed or idle. I explained all of this to Matt and Dan, within a day they diagnosed both problems, I could tell they took the extra step of pin pointing exactly what was causing this rattle noise and fixed it, they also fixed the leak in the rear differential for a price that I was very pleased with. Overall, their customer service, knowlege, and price make it an easy decision to use them again for all future service/repair.

    I recently purchased a 2002 535i, relying solely on Matt's input. I absolutely l love my new car! This car is in mint condition inside and out. I will only allow Matt or Dan to work on it if needed. I trust them thoroughly with it. It is well worth the drive up from Mays Landing to have it serviced. I never mind waiting in their waiting area......spotless! Thanks Matt!

    Thank you Matt, Dan and Steve for bringing my BMW back to life. The car had a unique mechanical breakdown and I considered giving up on her. Today I picked up my ride and she's running like new. These guys are the best technicians and their service charges are very fair.

    As a first time BMW owner that pretty much knows nothing about cars. It was very important for me to find a reliable, fair priced, and most importantly TRUSTWORTHY mechanic to service my BMW once the warranty expired. I found just that in MD Motorwerke. I was referred to MD Motorwerke by a co worker and I have been going there every since for routine maintenance and a couple of headaches. I would described the owners Matt and Dan as "straight shooters" and that is exactly what I want when dealing with a repair shop.

    You can't go wrong with Matt, Dan and Steve. They are very friendly, honest, professional and knowledgeable. My Mercedes E320 2004 is running much better after transmission services at MD Motorwerke (Dan). And today Matt had done for my BMW X5 2004 transmission output shaft seal, drive extension gasket and transfer case shaft seal. Most of people don't want to mess with BMW transmission and I trust Matt and Dan for their services. I hightly recommend Matt and Dan. If you want your BMW/MB cars are last long , bring to Matt and Dan and Steve.

    Having been a long time customer of MD Motorwerke, it was no surprise that I turned to them for advice and pre-purchase inspection of my current 06 BMW 550i. Not only did Matt give me honest opinions, he actually showed me where potential problems were on my 550, saving me thousands off the dealer asking price. Six months later I was in the market for new headlight modules. Matt, Dan and Steve had me installed, coded, and up and running while I waited. If your looking for repairs, MD will not only save you hundreds if not thousands off dealer and local shop prices, they will provide better than dealer level service, and treat you like family.

    My "SES" light came on intermittently for a couple of weeks. I generally take my 2006 X5 to the dealership but someone referred me to Dan and Matt. And I am glad they did. Honest and prompt service. Their pricing was fair.

    Matt, is a God with BMW's . not all people have the touch to work on German cars. Matt is the best . I have had a 1976 2002 and a 1984 325e that Matt has worked on. when i sold the 325 it had 286000 miles and still was going strong, this is a safe bet shop.

    I have been going to MD motorwerkes for 10yrs. Dan and Matt are always accomadating even on the shortish notice. When I got a BMW in 2001, the car had 30,000mi now I have 210,000. I had my car 1yr and I needed a catalytic converter. I went to MD and they called DeSimone because they said it should be covered under the BMW warranty up to 80miles. It was. Dan & Matt could have easily just did the work and charged me. But that's what good, honest guys these are. I recommend them whenever I can. I always say a great mechanic is as imortant as a good doctor . Thanks Dan and Matt you're the BEST !!

    It has been 2 years and 2 (2003 530i and 1999 323i) BMW's and I keep bringing them to the guys at MD. I continue to get the right guidance on "need to fix now" and "it can wait" repairs. Only one thing has changed, they've improved their waiting room!

  • Bill Garrity5 years ago

    Where to begin, I started going to MD Motorwerke about six years ago. I had a white 2001 325i 5spd, What really impressed me about Matt and Dan was the knowledge they had. When they fixed your car they did not just fix it they explained it to you educating you along the way. One day my girlfirends sister called me it was about to rain and her sunroof would not close, I told her to call MD Motorwerkes that is where I go. Later I found out she drove up there, they were able to close her top and they sent her on her way without charging her, that is just the type of guys they are. Recently I purchased a 2004 M3 which I aksed for advice before buying, let me tell you I was at the shop everyday on my way home from work because I value everything they say, they steered me away from one vehicle and pointed me in the direction of the M3 I now have. I had them do some repairs that were needed which were done by Steve an incredible mechanic who was able to diog the problems and get the M3 purring again, he really puts a lot of thought into what he is doing and does not stop untill everything is perfect. They dedicated so much time into this venture for me, that I could never thank them enough. Matt, Dan, and Steve are more than just guys that work on my car, the knowledge they have between the three of them is very impressive , because of my BMW I not only found the best mechanics around, but I found three great friends, that I would recommend everyone to take your BMW, MERCEDES, OR MINI to their shop .

    I have been continually impressed with the level of service provided by Matt and Dan at M.D. Motorwerke. I have been a customer since their opening several years ago and have owned several different Mercedes, BMW and Mini Coopers which they have taken care of for me. Not only are they professional mechanics, they also own and drive the cars they service. Dan drives his BMW M5 on the racetrack with a bicycle rack on the roof and passes other drivers in much faster cars including Porsches and Corvettes. Their shop is always kept clean and they have all of the tools and diagnostic equipment necessary for minor and major repairs on BMW's and Mercedes. I have recommended them to all of my freinds without hesitation and the feedback is always excellent.

    Honest Service. I had the experience to deal Matt, Dan, and Steve. They all know their stuff, and compliment each other well. Their shop is meticulous and their operation very well organized. My experience was a little more involved and little more nerve racking. I own a 1998 740IL, which needed a 2nd opinion on an Intake Manifold issue. Vehicle continued to blow out white smoke from the exhaust. Prior servicer had suggested a new motor, potential bad piston ring. With this said, I wanted a 2nd opinion. Luckily I found these guys on the internet !!. Following further testing and work on the car, MD did confirm my vehicle needed a new engine. After dealing with Matt and Steve on the work they did do to confirm the bad motor, I was comfortable enough with them in proceeding to have my 4.4 litre completely rebuilt and installed by these guys. The motor is now installed and runs nicely. Pricing was fair. I highly suggest anyone that owns a BMW or Mercedes, to have their vehicle serviced by these guys. As many others stated in these testimonies, these guys don't give you bullshit like many others do. I am a very picky myself, along with being a huge car enthusiast. I asked many questions, these guys did not feel challenged or defensive, they clearly took the time to answer any questions I had. They clearly showed interest in making me happy on my decision to have the engine rebuilt versus giving up on the car. Following the money I have invested, I believe the 740 still outweighs driving any used car I could have bought to replace my car. Thanks MDmotorwerke...

    Model: 2001 740i Sport

    Mileage: 124,000

    I found MD Motorwerks through the E38 forum that included a Bimmerboard link w/a listing of independent service centers. I'm in central Jersey & found the MD website, so I visited the site & read customer comments. I was impressed w/customer responses & their experience working w/Matt & Dan. Following a discussion w/Matt I was sold.

    The car needed front & rear shocks, mounts, bushings, etc., engine work: coils, plugs, fuel injector cleaning & brakes. The 7 now handles & performs like the day I bought it & this car is almost 10 yrs. old. These are ultimate driving machines, however they need to be repaired by knowledgeable & experienced mechanics & not the 'we do it all' repair shops. Outstanding work at a reasonable price & they get it right the first time. I would recommend MD to anyone w/a German car.......thx again.

    After getting an outrageous quote from the dealer and they were still not sure what the main problem was with my car. I was very upset about their fees & diagnosis. I called a friend who used to work at a BMW dealership, he referred me to MD Motorwerke. I felt like I won the lottery. The pricing, the service & the diagnosis was great. If you want great service at the right price, MD motorwerke is the way to go. Matt & Steve made my day. Great job!

    Car: 2004 BMW 330i bought used with 150,000 miles

    Problems: SES light, erratic idol, sharp noises from engine bay at 2500 RPM

    Solution: They diagnosed the problems, fixed them, and performed additional preventative care.

    Review: Listen if your reading this consider yourself lucky. There's a lot of solutions out there for problems with your BMW, the guy at autozone telling you its your MAF orone of 4 O2 sensors and to the people on the forums telling you the DIY techniques.

    I tried the simple stuff. It didn't work. People if its obvious then any competent mechanic can fix it. The fact is you went and bought a BMW, as did I, now give yourself the piece of mind by bringing your car to MD Motorwerke. There is no drama at this shop. You bring the car - Say whats wrong - They look it over - Confirm & Repair upon your approval - You Pay (they're worth ever cent) - Your Car and You are = :)

    I discovered MD Motorwerke almost by accident surfing the internet and I gave them a near impossible task and they delivered. I towed in a 2008 BMW 550i which had needed a lot of stuff taken care off as the result of a collision to make it roadworthy again. One thing that immediately struck me about these guys is their passion for these cars, it’s almost contagious and knowledge was quite in depth.

    First off, they diagnosed the starting issue as the BST cable needed replacing and then Matt, in his quiet manner, explained to me that there were numerous other issues that needed to be fixed to make the car roadworthy again and so it started. He turned Steve loose on the car and they diagnosed and fixed everything from the stereo, wiring, airbags, O2 sensors, horn, you name it they fixed it. I was able to take this car for the inspection and it passed with flying colors, now I’m really enjoying driving this car.

    One of the best parts was the cost, it’s comparably far cheaper than other shops and most importantly it was done right. Thanks MD Motorwerke and special kudos to Steve for an excellent job. I definitely recommend MD Motorwerke for any job, big or small.

    We purchased a 1999 323i for our 17 year old son. When we first got the car the check engine light was on as well as the ASC light. We were told by the seller he would have it checked out. (He is a BMW service manager in a near by state). He told us they could find nothing wrong with the engine light so they cleared the code. As for the ASC light we were told this would not prevent the car from going through NJ inspection. It failed inspection for OBD failure so we took the car to a local mechanic we had dealt with before. They could not do anything and suggested we take it to a BMW dealer. We did and were told the check engine light was due to a bad gas cap and hose and the OBD failure was due to a bad ASC module. We told them to replace the gas cap and hose only. That cost $386.00. It would be $1400.00 to replace the ASC module and program the new one. We took the car back to the seller who offered to replace the ASC module and program the unit if we split the cost of the ASC module and we did. Back to inspection and it failed again. OBD failure. Somewhere along the way we had found M D Motorworks web site. I called and talked to Matt and explained the whole story to him at that time he scheduled appointment for us and said he would be out of town but Dan would take care of us. We dropped the car off and $40.00 later we drove through the inspection station and passed. One local mechanic and two BMW dealers later. Thank you Matt and Dan, I thought we were going to end up with a BMW flower pot. I have told many BMW owners about your great service and will continue to. Once again thank you from one of your newest customers.

    In the past I had work done on my 525I with MD Motorwerke and was very pleased with my service repairs as well as the knowledge of owners Matt and Dan. I had my friends 323i taken there recently and was once again thrilled with the experience. I priced the work at the dealership on both cars and was amazed at the difference in price from MD , not to mention the charge for the dealerships hourly rate. If anyone is thinking of servicing their BMW or any other German car I strongly encourage them to visit MD Motorwerke

    I couldn't say enough about my 2 great experiences with MD! I've had my '01 325CiC serviced by 4 different BMW dealers since I purchased her new. Although I've had good service advisers along the way, they pale in comparison to my experiences with MD. Matt & Dan have been great to work with, and at a price that the dealers couldn't touch on their best days.

    In October of '09 I was at a point where I was trying to decide whether or not to keep my aging baby. At 215K, she was burning a lot of oil and sounding a little clunky. Not wanting to pay dealer pricing, I searched the web for a good BMW mechanic and decent pricing. I came across this site and read all the great reviews. Feeling very confident that they would do a good job and at a good price, I called and spoke with them. While I was describing the symptoms and my situation to them over the phone, they mentioned what they believed was causing the problems. I scheduled the appointment, they checked the car out and called me with an estimate. Let me tell you, they pretty much nailed the solutions to the problems, OVER THE PHONE, before they even saw the car! The estimate was better than I expected for the work that needed to be done. When I picked up the car, it ran great and the pricing came in right where they said it would. I had high expectations after reading the reviews here, and they managed to surpass them.

    When I went in to pick her up, Matt sat with me and went over the repairs that were done, answered my questions and even told me that since I had not replaced my fuel pump in all those miles, that I should plan on getting it done soon. This leads to my 2nd trip. 6 months and about 5K later, I found out HE REALLY KNOWS BMWs! Unfortunately, after a bad winter and a busy schedule, I didn't get the car back in time. I had it towed in and they replaced the fuel pump. I mentioned some other items to him and he checked the car out. Letting me know that there are a few more things to do, but none were critical, I picked her up and was completely happy and even more impressed with MD. (I'm planning on bring it back soon to address those additional repairs, this time before it's a problem.)

    If you own a Merc or a BMW and want to deal with knowledgeable, honest people, get outstanding service and all at reasonable prices, call MD Mortorwerke.

    Thanks guys!

    Dan and Matt are the best BMW mechanics around!! I have been going to Dan for over 10 years when he was working out of a small garage. He did all the performance upgrades on my 1998 323is and serviced it for the 10 years I had it. It always ran perfect!!! Matt and Dan are upfront guys and can be trusted, not only to do incredible work but at the right price. To get me to trust you is not easy!! If you are looking to buy any BMW take it there first before you purchase.Matt will give you an expert analysis of the car. For a small fee of course. Now I'm taking my 2000 540iM to Matt for service and i hope to have it for a long time.

    Great Service Center! Matt and Dan are friendly, knowledgeable, and truly interested in your Bimmer’s needs. It was worth the 45 min. ride from Trenton to have my Inspection II performed. Matt even installed a clutch delay valve that was delivered to me last minute when I picked up the car. If I have any issues in the future I’m going back, no question about it.

    Thanks again guys, and Happy Holidays!

    I have been a customer of MD Motorweke for the past 4 years. I have never found any service center as knowledgeable, or honest as these guys..! I have always been very particular about who services my car, as I do a lot of sales related driving. When I have any work done at MD I am confident that the work is done PROPERLY ......with the CORRECT PARTS.....and at at price that is extremely reasonable. It is not often that you can go into a shop ,actually speak

    to an owner, and know that you are getting truthfull, accurate information about

    the service to be done on your car. It's worth a trip in to see them...!

    I just picked up my first BMW (an old '91 525i) and it badly needed some exhaust repairs...everywhere I searched; the parts and labor seemed to be way more than what I paid to buy the car. I called Matt and told him my problem after reading all the good reviews that I saw online. I believed he would help me. I visited them this morning and Matt was just like all the other customers said - understanding, patient and most importantly - kind. He knew I had a financial issue paying for expensive repairs and did a stopgap fix on my car until I had the money to pay for new parts. And he charged me for just an hour's worth of work!! Not to mention topping up my coolant, oil and replacing the oil filler cap all within the amount - just cos he understood my situation. Good people with honest values are hard to come by in a business these days. I'll vouch for MD's service anytime, anyplace.

    Thanks for posting this site and listing MD Motowerke as a facility. Like the rest of the post here about MDMotor, I too have had a postive experience. I needed alot of stuff done but as anyone, I was also looking for a bargain. The price Matt quoted was steep but when I looked at everything and experience the new smooth feel of my car, I felt it was reasonable. Matt even called a couple times after to check up on how everything was going. Considering that they are a two man shop and he takes the time out to make a call says alot about customer service and integrity. You feel that you are dealing with people who value integrity and good relationships. Very rare in the auto repair business. I would highly recommend this company.

    Top notch service and pricing! I really cannot say a single negative thing about my experience with MD!!

    Matt and Dan are the perfect model for customer service that every single small business owner, or anyone looking to start a business, should learn from. They are both quite knowledgeable about the product (BMW/Mercedes Autos and parts), know how to best maintain them, and know when things do (and sometimes as important, do NOT) need service. They only fix what you came in for, and they won't try to sell you a part/repair job you didn't ask for (or don't need). They are very good at recommending when you may want to address an issue, and are incredibly good at patiently explaining their work at a layman's level.

    I bought my '02 525i last summer, knowing full well that repairs for it would probably be expensive. There was no way I was using a dealership as my go-to solution for repairs and service, so I asked around and many folks recommended MD. I now proudly and confidently recommend them to other BMW owners tired of the dealership experience.

    Matt was terrific. He took the time to listen to my issues and then went on two separate test drives with me to be sure he got the correct diagnosis. There is no question in my mind that this is the place for your BMW needs. The 45 minute drive each way is not an issue when you know things are done correctly and at a price much fairer than any dealer.

    These guys were great. They performed a valve adjustment on my E46 M3 and they did a fantastic job. Dan listened to all my comments, took notes and looked into everything I requested. The labor charges were very reasonable too. These guys are down to earth, trustworthy and reliable. I would definitely go to them for all my future services.

    Outstanding Sevice!!! I first started using MD 5 years ago with my first BMW 3 series. Right from the start, Matt and Dan were extremely professional and a world of knowledge when it comes to BMW's. They are straight shooters and you always know up front the costs involved with the work they are doing. When I first started using them I shopped around to make sure they were competetive and I always found them to come in more reasonable than anyone. I now have a 5 series and do not shop around anymore. Any time I need something done I immediately call Matt or Dan and schedule the appointment with them because I know I will be well taken care of. If you are out of your BMW service warranty, my advice is to call MD Motorwerke. Forget the dealership, I promise you will not be dissappointed!! These guys are top notch!

    I started going to MD Motorwerke in 2002 for repairs on my 1995 525i BMW. All the work that was ever performed on my BMW by this shop was top notch and performed at a reasonable / fair price. Don't waste your time going to the dealers once your warranty expires. These guys can do it all and will fix your car the right way the first time and have you back on the road in no time. My BMW has 242,000 miles and is still going strong. I have been to BMW dealers across South Jersey before finding this shop and the bottom line is..... you will not be disappointed and any repair performed will be done by two of the most honest mechanics I know.

    Terrific, terrific shop! My '04 325i was just out of warranty, and I was having symptoms of a stuck thermostat (engine not warming up properly). Dan was really helpful on the phone and gave me straightforward estimates. I'm kind of a wannabe gearhead and asked a lot of (probably annoying!) questions, and he answered everything patiently and honestly. In addition to the thermostat, I asked him to check the belts and pulleys (had recurring problems that the dealer never seemed to fully resolve), and said I was considering changing the water pump as a preventative measure; he could have easily swayed me to do the extra work, but after checking the car he said everything looked fine and there was no need. No BS whatsoever, just solid, practical recommendations - I do a lot of research on the web, and everything he said jived perfectly with the best expert opinions I found.

    Parts cost and labor rate are very competitive, and the service is great - dropped it off the night before and was washed and ready to go by early the next afternoon. My dealer is known for good service (by dealer standards at any rate), but MD is way better, and I saved hundreds of dollars as well.

    I live about 100 miles away in Jersey City, but fortunately I have family that's walking distance from MD, so I planned a trip specifically to give the shop a try - I was not disappointed! Was well worth the trip - I'll definitely be bringing my car back whenever possible. Thanks again Dan!

    Let me declare right up from...M.D. Motorwerks of Somerdale, NJ are the most experienced, most honest and most professional BMW service shop I have ever come acorss. I found them on January 7, 2009 after a bitter experience with two BMW dealers. Let me explain my experience:

    I had a problem with my BMW 540i which had shut down and couldn't start due to a faulty EWS. I towed it to dealer #1. They spent over 2.5 hours at the rate of $169.95 per hour (which I later found that was not their normal rate they charge), just to diagnose the problem, even though a mechanic had already suspected the EWS which I told Open Road. They then declared they will fix it for $1023.00 NOT INCLUDING THE DIAGNOSIS CHARGE OF $270.00.

    So I refused for them to fix it because I had found out from calling another BMW Dealer (dealer #2), that dealer #1 was overcharging me by more than $50.00 per hour compared to them and other dealers. I then had my car towed to dealer #2. When I got there I told them of the diagnose already determined but they said they had to do their own.

    Two days later dealer #2 called to say that they have spent 1.5 hours already and have still not fully determined the problem. They then asked me to authorize them 3 hours of diagnosis time at the rate of $116.95 per hour. Hence 3.0 hours will cost over $350 plus tax just for diagnosis. I again refused and decided to take my car somewher else or wait till I can come up with the $1,000 plus the dealers were asking. BY NOW I HAVE SPENT ALMOST $500.00 IN DEALER DIAGNOSIS AND TOWING ALONE.

    That's when I went to the Internet to find out BMW Specialists, and BINGO! THAT'S WHEN I FOUNF THIS SITE ( And then found M.D. MOTORWERKS of Somerdale, NJ. They were a life saver, professional, experienced and very very honest and inexpensive. They took less than 30 minutes to diagnose the problem and THEY CHARGED ME A TOTAL OF $300.00 TO FIX MY CAR plus the cost of a second key. In effect, they were cheaper in fixing the car than what dealer #2 would have charged to only diagnose the car.

    The people at M.D. Motorwerk had nothing but BMW and Mercedes Benz cars in their shop, THESE GUYS ARE TRUE EXPERIENCED PROFESSIONALS FAR BETTER THAN BMW DEALERS. I can say that with confidence and fact because each of the two BMW dealers wanted no less than 3 hours to diagnose a simple EWS problem, but they did it in less than 30 minutes while I was waiting.

    This space is insufficient to give a truly proper comment on MD Motorwerkes. Matt & Dan are highly experienced German car mechanics and know EVERY ASPECT of these cars, including non-mechanical items like trim & body work. If you live in the Greater Philadelphia region, you WILL NOT be able to get a higher, more thorough & reliable level of service for your BMW or Mercedes at a very reasonable cost. MD Motorwerkes takes steps to ensure that they not only properly diagnose & effect repairs, but they also ensure that all aspects of your German driving experience are sound & that no hidden problems lurk.

    I own a '99 323i, and MD has worked on it exclusively for over 2 years. At 137,000 miles, my car is every bit as mechanically sound as it was when I first bought it. Matt & Dan have not only performed routine maintenance, but helped solve very intricate mechanical problems permanently without any excess cost or headache. I will always use this shop for my cars. Matt & Dan are each lifelong owners of these cars as well, and are extremely knowledgeable, friendly and good to do business with. They will make every attempt to accomodate you, even on short notice.

    The bottom line: if you want the highest level of service possible without going broke and to drive away with a strong feeling of confidence that your car is every bit as certfied as when you bought it, take your business to MD Motorwerkes.

    MD Motorwerke is fantastic. I have been a customer since 2002. During the past 6 years they have done all the service on my cars including a 328i, 540i, and M3. They are extremely knowledgeable, have the latest equipment and tools, and charge very reasonable rates (no more trips to the Stealer!).

    The greatest testament to MD Motorwerke’s outstanding service is that I currently live in Maryland, but continue to bring my cars to Matt and Dan. They are that good. I would recommend them to anyone.

    Dan and Matt are both excellent. I have been going to the shop for more than 10 years from their first shop to the current location in Somerdale. I have had them work on two BMW's, both 7 series. Not only do they do a good job at fair price compared to the dealerships, they are both very honest and hard working guys. I would recommend them highly. I have used Sussman in Pleasantville, DeSimone in Marlton and Turnersville BMW from time to time over the last decade and always regret it after the fact. Matt and Dan are the guys!!

    I dealt with the owner, Matt C., to service and tune up my BMW X3. Not only did I find out that they do great work, but Matt is also an Iron Man athlete. The level of service was up there on that level. It was a pleasure doing business with him and the price was more than reasonable. I highly recommend M.D. Motorwerke in Somerdale. TOP O THE NOTCH!

    Outstanding shop. I highly recommend Matt and Dan. They are honest, professional, and knowledgable. My 1998 BMW 318ti had a heating problem (no heat inside the car) that a BMW dealer was unable to solve in two (expensive) visits. Matt diagnosed the cause of the problem almost as soon as I had identified it. His diagnosis- that the cable had separated from the heater box- was right on and he fixed the problem at a very reasonable price. Their service is tremendous, their prices are competitive, and their knowledge of German cars is considerable. They are an excellent choice for any BMW or Mercedes owner.
