These guys run a great shop. I don't think that there prices are "cheep" but I've never been up sold or been told that I have to pay for any repairs that I knew my car didn't need to drive comfortably and safely. They are reliable, courteous, and honest businessmen that have made a customer for life. So much so, that I actually signed up for yelp just to write this review. Thanks.

Advanced Autowerks is amazing! I'll never go to the VW dealership again!! Jason and the rest of the crew really understand what customer service is all about. Jason explained in detail what they were doing to my car and why and what my options were. The suspension on my Passat is amazing. I've never left an auto shop feeling this happy before.

These guys ROCK! I just moved to the city from Colorado and had to get my car through the dreaded smog check. Failed the first attempt. Fellow VW owners feel my check engine light pain!? It passed emissions but had a bunch of computer errors, so the light would not go off!After one bad experience with another shop, I found Advanced Autowerks on Yelp. Took my car in, had some work done, the light came back on - took it back in and explained to the shop owner (I think..?), Randy, my situation and that i was afraid of going upside down on my car value since it's an older model and I'd already sunk a ton of money in it just to get it out here. Not only did he locate the final problem and resolve it for reasonable money, but he took it to smog check for me and saved me the final headache!!!Thank you Randy!! You will have my biz from now on!! Advanced Autowerks is the BEST!

These guys are awesome! Friendly, professional, and (important IMHO) very understanding of those with no auto/engine knowledge whatsoever. Flashing engine light? Stuck at the side of the road? Give 'em a call and they'll ease your anxiety levels.My A4 goes here whenever there's an issue (which unfortunately is not infrequently). If it's a quick fix, I'm in and out and often with little or no cost (probably because they know I'll be back with bigger problems to fix). In fact, their number is one of the 'favorites' on my iphone.Thanks Advanced! See you (hopefully not too) soon.

Just got back from having my first visit and 55k service for my Audi TT with these guys. Easy and hassle free. I opted to stay and wait for the car (took a few hours, but I was just working from my laptop using their wifi in the waiting room). Did the service for a fraction of what the east bay dealership I used to go to wanted (and actually ended up being a smidge less than I was quoted initially on the phone). And I got to hang out with Diamond, the superstar sweetheart pitbull. Will be coming here for all my future service needs.

Thank god for Yelp! Whenever it comes to car repairs my stomach automatically starts to churn. I always feel like I am going to get ripped off. I have a Volkswagen and have also heard that they have special needs that sometimes can only be taken care of by the dealership.I started to check all over Yelp to see where I can go and found Advanced Autowerks. It was right by my house and had gotten some great reveiws so it seemed like a good fit. Boy was it! I went in about some electrical problems but also told them that my car was kind of loud. I've had it for 10 years so I thought that maybe it was old and that was the reason. They said they would check it out.Well they found that my water pump had holes in it and was ready to go at any time. When they called me to tell me and give me an estimate they gave me no pressure to get it fixed. They said it was an expense repair and that I could wait, but when it went there was no doubt I would be stranded somewhere.I told them to go ahead and do it and am sooooooo happy I did. They kept me well informed about my car the whole time. It was a Friday and they called me a second time forewarning me that there was a possibility it would be done by the end of the day but would supply me a rental car at no charge for the weekend. Then they called me later saying that it was ready. When I picked my car up they explained all the things they repaired in detail and showed me all the parts they took out and replaced, so I could actually see the wear and tear on them and why the work needed to be done. And to make it even better when I got the bill it was $70 less than what they originally estimated. I would go back to this place in a second. Hopefully I won't have to, but if I ever have a feeling there is something not right with my car I know where I will take it and I highly recommend your car there too.

Thank you fellow Yelpers for leading me here. These guys are AWESOME!I was clueless about why my beetle kept stopping, and with one phone call they advised it is probably the alternator, and although they are booked solid they could probably squeeze me in the next day. Ends up they did squeeze me in, and with a brand new alternator the beetle is running fine now. Jason even stayed 15 min late on a friday night after closing to wait for me and the taxi cab to arrive to collect said beetle. I tried to give them a tip for their excellent service, but they refused the tip, and then took $15 off the total bill to cover my taxi fare! Huge points for Jason on front desk, who is very friendly and cute to boot!I can't recommend these guys enough, I'll definitely be going back here soon to get my beetle serviced.

I had to take down my previous glowing review because I was paranoid about Royal Motors reading it. I had semi-dissed them and then, lo and behold, my 2001 Audi needs some random part that I can only get from them. Sigh. Bad timing, as my 2001 Audi then needed repairs Royal wanted to do. Their estimate was too high, so I said I would think about it and took it to Advanced the next day. Randy and his crew completed the repairs (which were extensive) with such amazing customer service and professionalism that I'm just going to keep it at that. Simply the best around. Thank you!

My car is back on the road again, thanks to VW/Audi gurus Randy & crew @ Advanced Autowerks. Very fair prices, excellent work & more importantly, follow-through *AFTER* the service. Can an auto repair shop get any better?!?! These guys certainly set the bar very high.
