About / Reviews

I'm not going to waste a lot of time writing this review because this is so straight forward. If you have an Audi, Advanced is the only place to go. I've had great experiences every time I have gone there, and as noted in other reviews they provide honest service with solid prices. I won't be taking my ride to any other place in the city.....

Professional, honest, fairly priced, knowledgeable, competent mechanics who perform service in a timely fashion, keep you updated, and have a sense of humor. I have a 2000 VW GTI GLX that I have taken there two or three times since I moved to SF, and I have been well-treated every time. They were recommended by a friend who has a 2001 Jetta; both of us have had experiences where we called in the morning with a problem, were told to come in that day, and weren't charged for a very quick fix or tweak. I particularly appreciate the lack of upsell and the amount of information they give me about the problems they're working on.They have a shuttle for mornings, but iirc you have to find your own way back. The T-Third swings right by there, so it's easy to get to via MUNI. For one major series of repairs, they had to schedule me a few weeks out, but as mentioned above, they seem happy to take a quick look at your car the day you call them with an issue if they think it is a no-brainer to fix.

Check engine light came on, took it in there, the problem wasn't serious enough to warrant replacing the part, so he turned the light off for me. Also, it cost me $0. Dudes earned a repeat customer.

Went in there with my car prepared to be cleaned out for my timing belt/water pump/ lightweight pulley install, but they ended up being cheaper than anyone in the area. Awesome service, got my car back on time even though I had additional work done to it after having them call me with a few minor things that needed attention.

Amazing shop. Knowledgeable, honest, quick, friendly staff. I have been going there for 4+ years and have referred at least 10 people to get all their Audi/VW maintenance & repairs here.There has been a slight drop in customer service since they enlarged and updated their space, but they are still far and above anyone else.

What else can be said....Amazing. They are fast, don't overcharge and do an excellent job. The shuttle service to and from is another added bonus.

These guys are great. Honest with fair prices. They even told me that I shouldn't have them replace my broken clutch because I was having other work done in another week (new turbos) and it would make more sense to have my clutch replaced (by someone else) at the same time as that work since there would be a lot of duplicate labor.

I'm driving across the bay bridge and the engine light goes on. I'm the kind of person who just "follow the rules" when it comes to taking care of a car -- which means the idiot lights were meant for me. This is the 3rd time the idiot engine light has gone on in 13 months, the last time only 3 months ago. So I take it in to Royal Motors, like the previous 2 times where they've fixed the car charging me lots of money. This time they wanted $610 and I finally said "no." My husband checked through "yelp" and found this place. Thanks to all the previous reviews because it saved me!Randy and Aaron are great -- real people! Got my car in, they fixed the problem and gave me free advice on my car. The cost? $179 -- way less than Royal Motors! Wish I found about this place sooner -- would have saved me hundreds. Great service, guys with super attitude, and really reasonable prices.

These guys are awesome - they're thorough and have a great attitude. So much better than the dealer. They recently did about 4 hours of free work for me because of a minor oversight on something they'd done previously.

Yes, I own a VW. Yes, it's my second one. Yes, I've owned better cars. Yes, I think they put drugs in the upholstery to keep you coming back for more. After my first service, I programmed them into my cell. Which came in handy on the way back from Tahoe. Not even 1/3 of the way down the hill, all of the lights came on on the Terminator's dashboard. Brake light, seatbelt light, some triangle arrow with a circle in it, the center readout flashed the word "Stop" in big red letters, then it said "Brake Failure". I saw my life flash in front of me. I was sad that I never finished that macrame toaster cozy. Then I remembered my cell phone and had the Love of My Life dial Advanced. Snookums: "They probably won't answer"Me: "Yes they will"Snookums: "They probably don't speak english"Me: "Yes they do"Snookums: "They'll probably say they can't help, and we'll have to bring it in. We're going to die"Me:"Just call them"Randy answered right away. Randy speaks English.Snookums:"Hi, my girlfriend brings her car to you. She has a 2001 Passat"Pause.Snookums:"Yeah, Bunny" He looked confused. He told Randy what was happening.Pause.Snookums:"So, we're ok? The brakes aren't failing?Pause.Snookums:"It's just a fuse? You're sure. Should she come in tomorrow?"Pause.Snookums:"Ok man. Thanks. She always says you're great."The Love of My Life - who doesn't even drive a car - would give Advanced 5 stars too.They don't up sell. They don't scare you. They are friendly and honest. They speak English as a first language. They are cute.
