  • In 2001 Marc rebuilt the shortblock in the 3.8 CSi. The work was flawless. Then in 2006 I needed more help. Like the famous Disneyland ad that shows the sports champion yelling I'm going to Disneyland I yelled, I am going to Bavarian Workshop after winning the BMW Concours in Monterey. After a large push to finish the Twin Turbo project, there was a list of teething pain items that had to be addressed. I live in South Orange County and there is only one shop in Southern California today that I would entrust with the intensive level of detail required to tune and adjust this type of high performance car. It's usually the shop owners that are the perfectionists, in this case Dillon also demonstrates the same sincerity with his professional enthusiasm. I can leave my car with confidence that their work will exceed expectations. They exude integrity and passion. It is a pleasure doing business.

  • I was tired of taking my car into the dealership and getting poor customer service. I had to wait in lines to drop and pick up my car. And, they never fixed my car properly. I was so happy when I discovered Mark and the Bavarian Workshop. My car is like my child to me and I want the best service possible. Mark cares about my car as much as I do. It is obvious that he has a passion for cars. The customer is service is outstanding. My car is always in tip top shape. I totally trust the work they do. Thank you Mark and all the mechanics at Bavarian Workshop.

  • In 2000, I purchased a 1989 325i. It had 76K miles on it and needed quite a bit of work to tighten it up. I took it to Marc and over the course of a couple of months, he chipped it, totally replaced the suspension, exhaust and brakes, bored the throttle body and completely tuned it. In the end, he created a Dinan 10 point car that handled like a go cart and took on anything from its era - including the M3 - with great success. I moved out of state in 2001 and since then have driven the car daily. It now has over 200K miles and outside of plugs, oil, tires and brake pads, hasn't needed a thing until recently, when it went in to the shop for the first time in 9 years - to replace a worn drive shaft. Not only did Marc build an amazingly fun car to drive, he built it to last. Thank you Marc....I fully expect this car to last quite awhile runs that strong.
