Testimonials

  • This place is great! I brought my '80s BMW shark nose coupe - I was on my way from way upstate to Texas. They fixed thing my "expert" mechanic missed. Car runs like new!!! Very, very fair bill and genuine BMW parts.

  • If, like me, you're a fan of German engineering, and refuse to drive anything else, you know parts and labor at the dealerships are way overpriced. Not only that, but the service they provide lacks any kind of personal touch. I drive an older BMW. I want my mechanic to love the car as much as I do. When a friend put me on to Foreign Tech, I knew I met the right team: All car addicts. And with taste. They take an artisan approach to fabricating custom parts and diagnosing any issues. Plus, we get to talk shop while I'm there. Antonello and his crew are perfectionists who care more about getting it right--what you want!--than trying to sell you what you don't need. 5 stars. Definitely.

    Had a boost leak and drivetrain malfunction error, went to the dealer and they gave me a sizable quote for new turbos and valve cover. I decided to get a second and third opinion, Ant figured the issue out with a smoke air test and computer readout, turns out I didn’t need new turbos, a crack in a pipe was causing all of the issues, we upgraded some stuff and changed oil and the car runs like new..

    Thanks again Antonello.

    All I can say is Wow, my 1998 M3/4/5 drives better than it did when it was brand new. This is my 3rd BMW I brought to Foreign Tech, and they never disappoint. Antonello sat with me and asked me how I wanted the car to drive/handle, and then he went over the parts/modifications needed to make this happen. He is incredibly detailed oriented and knows his stuff. I didn’t originally listen to some of Antonello’s suggestions and bought my own parts. Turns out they were meant for the track, which is the exact opposite of what I told him I wanted. He told me that they would be too rough but I insisted he put them in - what a mistake. The flashy green engine and transmission mounts I forced him to install were extremely rigid and made the car not enjoyable to drive. I should have listened to Antonello’s original recommendations from the start. He showed me some new options and went over how they were different from what I purchased. He then bought and installed them and now the car drives amazing!

    I never expected it to drive this smooth and handle so well. The car has 148k miles on it, and you would never know from how it drives! Antonello is always really hands on, which I appreciate. He listened to what I wanted and made recommendations, even if I didn’t listen. He waited for my approval on all work. The car went from a sad state to a rejuvenated classic e36 m3. Even with COVID impacting all shipping/manufacturing companies, he was able to deliver the car in a timely manner. If you want a great, knowledgeable shop to make your car truly standout, I highly recommend Foreign Tech. I am already planning my next project for them!

    Ive been going to this shop ever since i found out about this place. If something doesn't exist or nobody can do it, Foreign Tech will get that done without a question. Hands down the best work, affordable and trustworthy place in Westchester County. Iwould never go back to a dealer or a random shop. These guys will go beyond just to get your car fixed the right way and leave you satisfied. I recommend Foreign Tech all the way. I've been taking my car since 2017 and never had a problem.

    Do yourself a favor and go somewhere else. These guys don't know what they are doing and will do more damage than good to your car. You hear all these horror stories about bad shops, well this place is one of these places that cause these stories ...

    So here is my story ....

    Where do I start? They did a lot of work on my car and almost every item they did had issues ...

    They installed new tires and rims and forgot to put in the TPMS sensors that I provided for them, so I had to take the car to a different shop to take off the tires and put in the sensors ....

    Installed new exhaust, had 3 exhaust leaks ...

    Installed an intake, forgot to put in the rubber seal and the engine started throwing codes, had to had it reinstalled ...

    painted the brakes and put the logo facing forward on one side and facing backwards on the other, now I have to get them redone

    Forgot to put the engine cover on the car when they gave it back to me, had to go back to the shop to retrieve it

    Lost the center caps for the wheels

    I am sure I am forgetting something ...

    All these issues aside, they overcharged me almost double what they initially had me quoted

    And if this wasn't enough, the owner let his friend take my car for a joy ride without my consent - who does that?

    Long story short, I had some work done, they almost ruined my car, overcharged me and now I am doing the same work twice to fix all the problems.

    I don't enjoy writing bad reviews but if more people did what I am doing now, I wouldn't have gone to this place in the first place.

    Used Foreign Tech for a PPI on a Z3. Worked with Antonello remotely as they are in Ossining NY and I am in Northern VA. He did an outstanding job working with me and the seller to get the car in quickly, within 1 day. Great communications with a detailed PPI report and over 50 pictures the next day! We them spoke on the phone and went over the report and pictures in detail along with his recommendation and overall assessment of the car and its condition. An absolutely excellent experience and great customer service!!

    I have brought my car to Foreign Tech for mechanical work as well as body work. My car has always looked great after but always ran great as well. I have recommended various friends to Antonello's shop and he never disappointed.

    I've tried others and wasted time and money. Foreign Tech has always diagnosed properly and gave me amazing pricing. Highly recommended and I always refer a friend, you will too.

    Foreign Tech is the best shop I’ve ever been to, they do the best work and do it the right way! No short cuts. I only let them touch my M3 from the first day I came to the shop.

    Antonello and his team at Foreign Tech impeccably executed a full engine overhaul on my beloved BMW X5 35i. His price quote was several thousand dollars less than the local NY BMW dealerships and the unparalleled caliber of personalized service he provided, keeping me apprised throughout every phase of this arduous undertaking, exceeded my highest of expectations. My family and I were so delighted with the final outcome as well as the cumulative time, energy and painstaking effort Antonello devoted to our X5, that we brought him my husband’s new MB S550 4Matic and Bentley Continental GT Coupe the following week, for their annual service, rather than supporting dealerships who frequently charge exorbitant rates and engage in price-gouging. Antonello and his father’s establishment is a staple within the community and these gentlemen operate their business with refreshing righteousness, honor and integrity. Antonello has earned lifelong patrons in us and comes most strongly endorsed by my family and I.

    Antonello and his team at Foreign Tech know the business of German engineering. I wouldn’t trust my BMW to anyone else. They recently fixed a rocker panel that got ripped off in a car wash. (That seems to be my luck these days.) I had my car back in a few days. And it looks great.

    Brought my 2013 X5 50i M sport to Foreign Tech to get some motor work done. BMW dealerships wanted me to put in a new motor out of pocket for the troublesome N63 motor. Said that it couldn’t be done. I left it with The guys at Foreign tech and they fixed it without a problem, they are even approved by my third party warranty for all the work. They were able to go back and forth working with the warranty company to get approval on my claim. I had to do nothing for it! They did it all for me. After they completed the motor work that BMW said they couldn’t, I had them build custom straight pipes and let me tell you, it sounds amazing. There are very few performance upgrades for this truck. I was so happy with the quality of their work I have since brought them my e36 M3 coupe to work on. New or old I would trust them with my vehicles.

    Foreign Tech did a fantastic job. I was having oil loss issues and smoking on start up, some places pointed me towards seals internally, but they suggested it was likely turbo related. Time down wasn't horrible. No smoking since and car runs great. Thanks again guys!
