Customer Reviews

July 2018
From the first phone call to the car being brought in, every minute of business with Rennsport is professional, honest, fair, and straight-forward. You can see, and feel, the emotion and passion from Shaun, Austin, The Foreman, and The Techs. There is no denying that the shared importance that you have about your car, is alive within them. Many are family men and they know that you need the car for work, for pleasure, for groceries, and maybe just because the wife is nagging that this or that is still broken.

I had the pleasure of bringing my 2008 E92 M3 into the shop with a broken water pump. My novice opinion of what was needed for proper reconciliation of my problem was blown into space by the sheer level of communication and knowledge. Not only do you get a complete diagnostics but, you get a black and white, clear as crystal report of what they found, what is needed, and what will be done. No run around, no games, just truthful repairs. My water pump, tensioner pulley, two belts, and a coolant system seal check was performed. I was kept in the loop and had no reason to pester them. No repair is completed without your prior authorization. Real time quotes, fair labor prices and a great environment, not only were the repairs done but I chose to trailer the car in and was given assistance on unloading and staging the car.

I will return again and never hesitate to recommend Rennsport for all your repair, performance, and tuning needs.

Ken Kimmel

Thank you for making my son’s 16th birthday amazing! You guys are the best!

Ted Prevost

Highly recommend! Shawn and his team came through for me in a big way when my sons battery died. I called and he sent someone out to install a new battery and also programmed it on the spot. The young man he sent was extremely professional and nice. Not only that but he told us to come to shop immediately after the battery was installed to run a full diagnostic on the car. We will continue to go here for any of our future needs.

Teresa Robinson

These guys really know their stuff!! Super professional, and the most efficient turn around times I’ve experienced in any shop. Having a BMW is even better knowing that Bavarian Rennsport is in my neighborhood.

David James

These guys are awesome! Both Sean’s and Kelvin are genuine people. Not only are they great mechanics, they’re enthusiasts. They love what they do and their work shows it. Masters in their craft! Thank you guys!

Ramon Argueta

Got my x5 here and wouldn’t want it anywhere else in town! Thanks The BMW Guys for the care of my vehicle! Keep shining bro!

Darnelle Outlaw

Came there with my MINI Countryman (R60) in limo mode. Which first of all most shops have no clue how to work on.
At Bavarian RennSport they immediately helped me out with knowledge and with programming/electrical issues that no regular shop besides the dealership can do. And the dealership simply wanted me to order new parts when my parts were just in need for some know how.
Great team there and highly recommend for simply anything BMW and MINI related. They fixed all of my programming issues, and went beyond my expectations. 100% recommended by me.

Alex Reyen

I had my valve cover gasket replaced on my 330i, great prices, great people!

Austin Salvadore

A very knowledgable crew at piston performance. Very professional and the best deals in the land. I’m stoked to be a part of such an amazing family. Cheers guys

Jeffery Reynolds

Had an excellent experience at the Shop! One of the best customer service there is. They offered me an Uber since I had to drive a long way to the shop and then dropped off my car where I was. Never had that kind of service before and I definitely appreciate that. Such a friendly environment, big thanks to Shawn for helping me out and answering all my questions. You guys just earned a lifetime customer from me. Thanks again!

Tony Escalante

I like what I see….being in the automobile business from any perspective including my field of work (auto detailing) you gotta appreciate and respect Piston Performance… AWESOME DUDES!

Greg Williams

Great service and great people! Thank you so much for fixing my car definitely the best I’ve ever been to. Highly recommended

Megan Longhitano

Shawn the owner and Kelvin the doctor mechanic got my car up and running in less than a day at that. My 335i was down for a week until I got it over to their shop for a starter issue. The towing company that works for them was also great. I recommend them and their work. Keep up the great work. Will be back for more! For sure

Paul Llanes

Skip the dealership. These are professionals with just as much experience if not more, for a much lower price. Just do it.

Joshua Adam Constentine Keyes

Bavarian Rennsport is the best BMW repair shop in Jacksonville.

Antonio Hurtado

I was looking for a BMW Service Center in Jacksonville when I found Bavarian. After several visits these guys are now my go to Bimmer mechanics and friends.

Michael Leu

Honestly Im not to much into leaving reviews but for this repair shop everybody that owns and cares about there BMW should know Rennesports is where you need to bring your BMW when your having mechanical problems. Shawn the owner is a hands on owner he took the time to explain everything about our BMW and explained exactly what was wrong with our car and gave us advice on keeping it in tip top shape and away from his shop for major repairs! Its usually the other ways around, there happy to see you and take your money for more repairs! We had an airbag lite on and to fix it was going to cost us $1236.12 to replace a freaking seat sensor! Yes a seat sensor! well having a family and not wanting to feel guilty about having a faulty passenger airbag i was leaning to having it fixed, well the next day Shawn calls us and finds out from some research he did that the sensor was on a recall for my year vehicle, he got us the paper work together to get it replaced for free and didn’t charge us a dime! Who does this? Who cares about doing this anymore for people? Needless to say we thought we needed a full tune up as well fo our check engine lite was on so we were preparing to have to pay for that we figured it was due but after checking the diagnostic we only needed a new gas cap! me and my wife both were just blown away that this guy was not only a really nice guy and he took his time with us and explaining our car issues all the issues and we both felt he was a real honest guy and isn’t out there to get over on anyone! Shawn is a different kinda repair man owner he is a people person first and a full blown BMW enthusiast too! He just loves BMW’s, most of all he helps out people who really want to enjoy having ownership as well without the worry of what it might cost should it break down? He going to give you the honest price not some pumped up price to drain you dry! Like i said earlier in my review i don’t usually ever take the time to leave reviews but in this case i just want people to know just how i felt walking into his shop for the first time wide eyed wondering how much is this trip going to cost me and do i have enough on my credit card to cover it? Trust me from our experience with this shop you can feel very confident in the price and what really needs repairing! Thanks Shawn for all the help and advice getting to know our BMW and the real advice about how to take care of it better with preventive maintenance and keep it out of your shop for the major repairs! Who takes the time to do this anymore? Who even cares enough to do this anymore? Call this place when your BMW giving you problems, one phone call will change your mine just like it changed ours now if im having problems i know exactly where im taking it because i feel like i built a honest relationship with this shop all in my very first visit! Can you honestly say that about the shop your taking your BMW to now? Think about it?

Rowena Lotsey

Awesome shop. Can’t wait to do more business with them in the future. Excellent staff, got me the parts I needed swiftly.

Brian Durham

Thank you for the excellent and timely work in repairing my Porsche 911. I’m completely happy with the work and it’s great to be back on the road so quickly.

Orlando Caballero

This is my first time using Bavarian Rennsport and I can honestly say they are way more friendlier than the actual dealer (BMW)! I had few things that I need maintenance work on my BMW X1 and I can say they beat out the actual dealer! I saved so much money compared to what BMW was offering! These people are genuine and are a Godsend! I’m telling you, you won’t go wrong with them! My vehicle will be going here from now on!

Tracie Harvey

Had a great first experience at Bavarian Rennsport – they performed a pre-purchase inspection on my vehicle and all the items found were clearly documented and explained to me. The web system used for reviewing pending work and paying is really cool and I found it to be really easy to use.

Troy Kilberg

Bavarian Rennsport is like no other shop I have been to. The Techs are very knowledgeable and communicate very well to explain what is needed and not needed right away. Basically there is no other shop I would take my BMW to. The whole experience is great.

Mark Pack

My whole experience with Bavarian Rennsport was AWESOME ! The Noelle tune is unreal. The power and responsiveness is amazing. The techs here know why they are doing. They picked my car up and had it back to me in 2 days. I live 4 hours away. Great job. Very satisfied.

Ollie Higdon

Outstanding service and care from everyone involved. The repair job on the BMW was excellent and efficiently on time. As a retired senior Air Force Officer not only they offered military discount but were grateful for our service to the Nation. Well done. We will be back!

Elio Castellano

I’m more than happy with the results that these team of professional engineers and mechanics have provided. Even with a major a issue, they found an optimal solution and also maintained there service in an extremely high caliber. I will continue to come here even if I move out of the country, extremely transparent shop that will ensure that you know exactly what is to be expected. Not only that, they will sacrifice there time off to provide an excellent service in a timely manor. I Love this group of people. I’m literally just thinking of random things to do just so they can do it, they are that good! Hope you guys continue to make millions of customers happy, you guys deserve all the praises ! Thanks !

The reality is that while BMWs can be a joy to own and drive, they can also be more than a little scary to maintain. The team at Bavarian Rennsport has been great at taking that anxiety away. They have always been honest, forthright, and willing to take time to discuss options and the details of the diagnosis. They have also taken time to discuss all sorts of additional questions related to upgrades, and even helping me decide whether to keep the car or move on to something else. Shawn in particular has spent extensive time on the phone discussing options and the virtues of one car over another. Chaz and Jeremy are also two individuals I’ve worked with extensively, and they’ve constantly been knowledgable and patient. Great shop and great team.

Gene Koopman

i drove from Atlanta to Jacksonville to buy a Ferrari F430, i wanted a pre purchase inspection done , since it was a Sunday no shop was opened, i goggled Ferrari repair shops and Bavarian popped up, called and left them a message , Sunday night. I got a call from Chad the next morning, they were able to accommodate me on short notice, excellent customer service, they checked out the Ferrari on my behalf, and emailed me a copy of the report. They did a great job. will definitely do business with them again.

Anthony Giwa

Every experience I’ve had with Bavarian Rennsport has been outstanding. Customer service is second to none. I have nothing but good things to say about their shop, their staff, and their service. I would recommend them to anyone.

Gary Taylor

I must say Bavarian is the best BMW repair shop in Jacksonville. After spending several hundreds of dollars at the BMW Dealership my problem with my vacuum lines kept coming back. The BMW Guys found the issue added a new clamp and solved the problem. These guys know their BMWs.

Maxwell Anderson

Since I relocated to Jax, the Bavarian Renns sport team take great care of my 2001 Porsche….They are very honest, knowledgeable, professional and top qualified technicians. Highly recommended!!

Ricardo Diaz

I am new to the Bavarian family. My first experience was them working on my all original 1973 2002 Tii a couple of months ago. Communication was great and the work was done in a timely manner. Because of this experience, I trusted them to pick up my new addition to the family last week, 1976 S14 2002. It was a flawless experience. Will get it back to you this week to tidy up some loose ends. Can’t thank you enough for the communication and timeliness of your work.

My relationship with Bavarian Rennsport began with me calling them not knowing what was going on with my car. They quickly had my car towed to the shop, started diagnostics and later that week gave me a full understanding of what was going on with my car. After a short period of time, the car was fixed and I was on the road again. I was able to leave with piece of mind and confidence in The condition of the car. The team at Rennsport is truly like no other. They treated me like family, kept me updated on the condition of the car, reassured me when I was overwhelmed, and conducted business in a very professional manor. I am blessed that my car was taken to Rennsport rather than any other shop or dealer. This team is comprised of true BMW enthusiasts who are passionate of the work that they do. They went above and beyond and their exceptional work shows in my car. I will continue to conduct business with them and I greatly appreciate everything they have done for me and my car.

Adam German

Had my wife’s AMG GLE Coupe serviced at Bavarian Rennsport today. What a really nice, professional, and efficient crew. They did awesome work and the car was completed on time as promised. I am so pleased, I will be introducing my other vehicle to Bavarian Rennsport in the form of an oil change hopefully tomorrow or Friday (and it’s not due yet). 🙂 If you want first class service at a business that’s well versed in high-end vehicles, I highly recommend this establishment.

Walter Crowder

Thanks for the great service (20,000 Mile) on our Airstream Sprinter van. Please know how much we appreciated your attention to detail and the time you spent with us to answer all our questions. I will highly recommend you to others and return for any future Van Maintenance.

Janet Linger

Jeffrey did excellent work on my classic Mercedes. He quickly diagnosed the problem and fixed it. In fact he made some adjustments and the car and it now has much better throttle response. I was back on the road on my vacation in no time. Rennsport knows classic cars too.

H Jonas

I was delivered great service, a fixed car, and a peace of mind. Definitely keeping these guys for future services! Thank you for keeping it stress free for this military wife! My husband and I sure do appreciate it.

Deanna Martinez

Took my 1995 BMW M3 to THE BMW GUYS for a tune-up and performance upgrades. I was more than pleased with my repairs and the customer service is over the top. The Bavarian Rennsport family are welcoming and always willing to help… even on Sunday nights and I needed my car for work Monday morning.

Thomas Lovell

I left the dealership and other local vendors in the area. I won’t be looking back, because of low cost and BMW certified Techs that care about their work. These are the best professionals in town to service your vehicle.

Josh Keyes

For years my wedding ring has done its job as being the sparkle in my eye until my husband surprised me with a fully built Z4M. Bavarian did an over the top job building me a daily driver that is also great for track days. Now I can race with my husband rather than just watch

Erma Beck

You guys do great work and have good prices very much appreciated thank you guys for everything

Yama Sayeq

I am the proud owner of a 2004 BMW Z-4, 3.0i with only 42K miles.My nightmare started when the transmission died and had the car taken to Bavarian Rennsport. After a new transmission from BMW we thought that all is well and on our way, two weeks later car died transmission light on, car will not move, burned out module,which was replaced,the car only went a short distance shuts down again. Sent car to BMW diagnostic they said burned out dash board need replaced at a cost of thousands. Shawn the owner said that cant be, and he will find the cause, they spent thousand of their dollars to figure out what was the cause.A burned out door sensor that told the transmission the doors are open and the car should go into park mode, if you keep driving you rip up the transmission.NO ONE COULD FIND THIS CAUSE THEY DID. What was my cost I paid for the module, they absorbed the rest. What a stand up company, no other place to take your BMW.

Stefan Schreiner

The shop provides excellent and meticulous service to keep my vehicle in top shape. The owner does go the extra mile to satisfy the customer’s needs. Highly recommend their service compared to other local shops and BMW dealerships.

Edwin Benitez

Italo and his team completed a thorough PPI on a 2015 Mercedes E63S for me. Super thankful I had it done, they caught a number of issues quickly and pointed them out. Very professional service and pricing is on point. Saved me major $ and headaches. All the high-end Lamborghini eye candy at the shop didn’t hurt either!

Andrew Ripamonti

My first experience with BR was truly exceptional. I didn’t understand their appointment procedure and ended up waiting extra days for the job to be done, but the ultimate outcome was nothing but positive. Amazing operation.

Ronald Myers

Felt weird initially taking my 2009 vw jetta into this place with Porsche, Ferrari and BMW cars all over the place but they treated me as ever other customer gave me pictures and went through my entire car. Would definitely go back.

jeff trevaskis

Had a six year old battery on my BMW that needed replacing and registered Shawn and crew took care of me quickly.

John Howard

Superb service, awesome owners n staff.
BR really care about my car and me. My 2008 Mini Cooper has never been in better hands.
Car was in for several issues, when a very serious problem with the engine was discovered and taken care of.
I’m grateful to the owners and staff at BR for taking care of my car in a such great manner.

Jeff Kivert

I took my 2020 Porsche Cayenne in for the 30,000 mile maintenance. I was impressed by the professionalism and caring that the Shawn and the Service Technician displayed. It is very rare and exciting to actually experience a business that cares about the customer as much as they do. I recommend them to other Porsche owners without any hesitation.

Varnum Kenyon

I am very satisfied with the work done.
Bavarian R S has state of the art diagnostic equipment.
The technicians are very knowledgeable and friendly.
The booking system is very user friendly

Krishna Soni

When I had a recall and some routine service done on my vehicle, I was informed I needed strut replacement estimated at $2400.
I don’t usually shop for automobile service, but since Bavarian Rennsport was nearby, I called them. They responded quickly allowing an appointment for inspection and a quote within a few days. Their professionalism and thoroughness were amazing.
I had revealed the previously quoted estimate and wondered if I had been wise to do that. Bavarian Rennsport came back with news the vehicle needed a pair of struts and brake fluid service, however, their quote was considerably less than what I had received previously. Not only do I have a smoother ride, but I’ve also discovered a service treasure.

Robert Williams

Bavarian and their staff went above and beyond with my Huracan service and repair. I was stranded on the side of the road near the shop and they immediately responded (in the rain as well) to get me up and running and back to the shop. Kind and professional. Highly recommend their shop and personnel.
