the guys know their s__t. they are fun and will give you the straight dope on your ride. mine...didnt' fare too well in the straight dope category, but at least it was not what the dealer told me: "we need to replace the entire exhaust system". They understood a borla cat back system was in place and got the damn thing smogged/working. dealer had NO CLUE.if you have a modified audi or vw, use them. nobody better in the city.

Simply Awesome! I had originally got a quote from Royal which was way too high. So I went on yelp and found Advanced Autowerks. They ended up charging me about half of what Royal quoted me. The people here at Advanced are extremely nice and did a great job! And I when I paid cash they gave me a 10% discount! Definitely bringing my car here in the future for sure. Thank you Advanced!

I can't speak highly enough about Advanced. Also for being a woman, they are incredibly great and not intimidating. I've had several repairs with my Jetta, and just recently got into an accident. I had my car dropped off there, but found out later when they called that they don't do body work. By the time I had called back, they already had one of their recommended body shops having someone looking at my car. They had done the next steps for me. That's really above and beyond. This also saved me the hassle of having to figure out where to go and how to get my car there.Absolutely, wonderfully 5 stars. I will be coming to them for a long time.

I just can't say enough good things about this place and the INCREDIBLE service they provide. They are so nice and will do everything in their power to put your mind at ease and make you happy. I almost feel guilty for their generosity and service. Thank you thank you thank you for taking such incredible care of me and my car.

I found Advanced on Yelp a few years ago when Royal Motors gave me a quote for a repair on my Beetle that I just couldn't stomach. Advanced did the job (plus a bunch of other related work) for much less. Then, when I had another problem after that in the same general area of the engine they had worked on, they fixed it for free, because there was a chance that they had touched the area that was now broken. That showed me how honest Randy (the owner) was, and I never went back to Royal again. By 2010, my beloved Beetle had gotten quite old and needed a bunch of repairs. Randy felt bad that I was coming in so often that he started giving me breaks in price, though there was no reason he had to do so (it's not his fault I have an old car). Most recently, an old problem recurred -- the New Beetle sunroof has a design defect in its drainage system that sometimes leads to water getting inside the car. This has happened to my car a few times over the years, and it happened again this month. I brought it in to Advanced, fully expecting to have to shell out a couple hundred bucks for the fix. To my pleasant surprise, though, Advanced fixed it for free, saying that since they had fixed the problem for me before, they wouldn't charge me again this time. This made me realize, it's about time I write these guys a great Yelp review. Not only do they beat Royal Motors' prices, they are friendly and helpful and they give you breaks where Royal would just find another reason to squeeze more money out of you. If you're in SF and have an Audi or a VW, you're crazy if you take your car anywhere else.

These guys repaired my old Audi and the final price was exactly what they quoted me.Honest, friendly and reliable. You can't really ask for much more in a mechanic. I'll definitely return for my next round of repairs.

Friendly, knowledgable, dedicated.I took my ailing 2006 GLI here, after it breached the 80K mile mark, blew a gasket in the turbocharger, AND got a flat tire (yeah, that was an eventful trip). I wouldn't have expected a 36-hour turnaround for this kind of work, but still got it. Less than that, even. More like 30 hours after dropping her off. Even though it was a pricey fix, I never felt like these guys were pushing anything unnecessary on me. They nearly insisted on paying for cab or MUNI fare, even though this place was close enough for me to walk.Seriously? You have a european car and you aren't going here? What's wrong with you?

First Yelp review...I signed up just to say how great this place is. Just like many others, I was going to Royal for my A4 and now I know how much I was getting ripped off. I don't need to say anything more than all these other 5 star reviews...simply, they are all true.

I had to take in my A4 for a regularly scheduled maintenance and called these guys to get a quote. The price was well under what I was getting from other service companies, so based on the Yelp ratings, I decided it was a no-brainer. Upon dropping the car off, it turns out we had a miscommunication over which service was required, so the quote wasn't quite right and the real price was a few hundred dollars higher. The actual price was still competitive to what I was seeing from other shops, but regardless, they honored the initial quote and took the hit. They had the car wrapped up early and made the entire experience super stress free. I'll definitely be coming back!

I love these guys! Randy, Brett and the crew are the best! People in the car repair business should watch and learn how this establishment treats it's customers. I've never been more appreciative of a car repair joint as much as this one. You guys are awesome.Royal Motors... geh zum teufel.
