    Good work and fair prices. I’ve been using this shop since it opened and they are friendly and helpful. I haven’t had any issues yet.

    I found Jan on this site while looking for a shop to go over my new to me BMW 335XI. You can tell from the cars in his lot that he focuses on BMW. Jan is extremely nice and honest man to deal with. He mounted a new front right wheel, since mine was cracked and he went through all of my concerns that I had with the car. I will be using Jan as my main service technician for all things related to the servicing of my BMW.

    While I was there another customer came in and we started talking. He has been coming to Jan for a long time and had nothing but positive things to say. After today I know I have made the right decision to bring my BMW to Jan.

    I've been using Jan's for a couple years now. I found him by word of mouth and I've been happy ever since. Fair costs, good work and BMW certified. I know he works on other German cars but BMWs fill his lot. I recommend giving him a try.

    Drove from New York out to Lancaster to check out a 1988 325 convertible. I do some a lot of my own work on my vehicles but out in PA without a lift or even a floor jack I needed an independent specialist second opinion. So I found Jan on bimmershops,.com, made an appt. and arranged with the seller to take the car for a few hours. When I arrived at Jan's, there were like 40+ bimmers (no klidding) in the lot stacked three and four deep so I knew I was at the right place. Jan spent an hour going over the car and in addition to reviewing everything with me verbally, he provided a written catalogue of everything. And I mean EVERYTHING. Staff also friendly and accommodating. (I am used to rude New Yorkers). Highly recommend Jan.

    Repairs handled expeditiously and at reasonable cost by Jan's Auto Service. I will definitely call on Jan the next time I need regular maintenance or BMW repairs.
