  • Very professional and friendly people to do business with. As a new customer off the street, they treated me with respect as if I had been a customer for years. Took care of the starter on my BMW within a day. Will be returning for regular service.

  • My Mom drives an older BMW 5 series that she has taken to Elite faithfully for almost 10 years. They are great to work with and never have her fix things that she doesn't need. Her car always runs like new because of them and as a result we have total faith in Elite. I have recommended them to several other high line car owners and they too raved about Elite's service and honesty as well. Plus they wash your car for you and treat you like a human being, something rare these days!

  • I brought my BMW 330ci here to get the starter replaced. I usually do my own work, but my schedule didn't allow it this time around (weddings, work, family visiting). I found Elite Auto on bimmershops.com and read a few reviews before I made up my mind. I'm glad I brought it there. The service was quick and efficient. I dropped the car off before heading out to work and picked it up right after EOD. Of course, they are a little pricey, but it's expected since they specialize in luxury/imports. They even have free WIFI if you want to Facebook while you wait. Highly recommended.

  • All of the people at Elite are fantastic. They are polite, knowledgeable, and efficient. They are accommodating with loaner cars, and even gave me a ride to the airport when I dropped my BMW off for repair. They call promptly with an estimate, and even told me when work was unnecessary. It is reassuring to be able to trust that I will get honest service!

  • They were incredibly professional from start to finish! Saved me hundreds of dollars in unnecessary work that the dealer had recommended. The shop is clean and everyone I spoke with was polite, courteous and professional. As long as I'm living in this area, I will never take my car anywhere else. It is a truly rare gift to have found an auto repair shop that I believe I can completely trust.

  • I called for a question on getting a car inspected in a case where the registration had expired. The person who answered the phone was friendly and spent 10 minutes giving me the answers on what I should do and how to get the registration quickly. He showed me that they are really committed to customer service and we will become a customer. I am very impressed.

  • A few weeks I had taken my car to a tire place for an oil change and tire rotation. They (the other place) told me I needed an inspection and that my car would not pass unless I had my brakes done. They estimated over $300. Based on the reviews here, I took my car to Elite to have the brakes done( They estimated $265). They could have done them and I'd have been the wiser, but they called me and asked who had told me I needed brakes. They said mine were fine. They tightened a couple of things and took the car for inspection. The whole thing cost $59 (including the inspection) They even drove me home and picked me up. I'll surely use these guys again (and NOT the tire place).

  • Everyone at Elite is fantastic. They were willing to take my car when 6 other shops wouldn't even look at them. They are extremely thorough and go above and beyond every step of the process. I will definitely be using them again in the future.

  • I have had my cars serviced at Elite for over 10 years. They are fair and honest and I know that when I take my car home from being serviced there, that the work that my car needed was fixed correctly the first time.

  • I had a car brought in for a pre- purchase evaluation. The evaluation was thorough and complete with pictures. They were all so helpful! I feel like they saved me a lot of money and headaches!!! Highly recommend.

    I will not be going anywhere else for my maintenance needs! From one small business to another to another; this was the most pleasant, communicative, and straightforward experience I have ever had with a garage. Will definitely be recommending you guys, happy holidays!

    Recently moved back to the area, and these guys are amazing! Fantastic experience with the entire staff! Everyone was extremely professional, courteous, and personable. Folks at the shop kept me up-to-date on what they were doing, and why. Cannot recommend this team of professionals enough, and I now trust no one else to work on my Japanese Truck, and German car. Well done. Mike

    Elite’s performance exceeds industry standards. I’ve been a happy customer for five years now. Mike always keeps me appraised of what my car needs to run like new. The Elite team is capable, professional, and friendly, and they make it easy for me to get the job done. I definitely recommend.

  • Griffin Fraser4 months ago

    INCREDIBLE service! My car feels brand new. These guys took care of me, provided rides to work, and even a loaner car when they needed some extra time with the car. It was my first time bringing my car in to them as I am new to the state and it blew me away. They made me feel like family. They were honest transparent and did an amazing job. True experts!

  • Pat Lytle2 months ago

    I just had my rod bearings replaced on my e93 m3. and i can't say enough about Elite Auto the experience I had was awesome. Very nice people and really took care of my car. Fixed a bunch of stuff and everything came out great. I definitely recommend if you have a BMW to bring to Elite. Thanks Mike, Ben, Cody and everyone at Elite.

    I brought my BMW to Elite Auto in Warwick, R.I. to repair an oil leak, and to replace the power steering pump. The "courtesy vehicle " that picked me up was an old hybrid that had the battery replaced and wreaked of a toxic chemical odor that made me nauseous for the short time I was in the car.

    The repair cost was high, and there was no discernable explanation for the cost other than the bottom line number. The manager called someone else and was apparently wiling to give my car away for $900. The person he called told him it wasn't his car, but he insisted it was.

    The whole repair job seemed to be rushed. When I picked up my car it wouldn't start.

    I was told the bushings on the control arms needed replacement, yet he wouldn't replace the bushings without replacing both control arms for an additional $2,300.00. The oil had been replaced 100 miles earlier, yet he tried to sell me a complete oil change. I also own a 2014 BMW 550i M sport, and I will never take either of my BMW ' s to Elite Auto again.

    Elite Auto Repair has been servicing my wife's Lexus and my BMW for nearly 9 years. Not the same ones. The entire team there is the finest team of service people I have ever encountered. From just stepping the door to dropping by unannounced on a weekend with a minor problem, they are always ready willing and more than capable to assist.

    Going anywhere else for service would not be a good idea!
