Phil and the great 101 European do great work on my 1988 560SL — Runs better than it did coming out of the factory. Thank you,

Great customer service, responsive, communicative, friendly. Phil digs into the issue (however mysterious) until he has it figured out.

I live right opposite 101 European. When I couldnt start my car one morning, Andy came over straight away. Diagnosed the problem and came back with a quote within minutes. Took the car away to the lot and returned it fixed and washed to boot. Chase was utterly charming to deal with. A very pleasurable experience all in all. I thank them all and I even got a "neighbor" rate for the cost. Win win all round for me. Mary Frumkin

I’ve been coming here for years. Last week, they serviced my MB GLC300 and Boxster. From scheduling to pickup, the entire process is smooth, and the cars are maintained beautifully.

Phill and his family have been taking care of my cars for “thirty years” Mercedes, Volks Wagons, Sprinters, and several economy cars like Geo Metros and Fords ,for the family Kids. I have also purchased several cars from them, and was always very satisfied with there reliability.

Very accommodating and friendly people. I made an appointment with Matt to interview him and to discuss what might be involved to restore my newly purchased 2010 Audi Q7, as it needed updating. Matt gave me his sincere attention to the issues and gave me confidence I was in the right place. I had just been to Carlsbad Audi and found them to be much too big and snooty, not to mention way too expensive. I'm headed back to 101 European to get the work done.

Great shop they really know what they are doing my 1970 Volkswagon bus is so much better than when I brought into the shop I would highly recommend them for any auto work.

101 European is your GO TO independent automotive repair and restoration in San Diego County. In fact in all of SoCal I have never run into such knowledgeable and qualified technicians as Phil, Adam and their whole crew! If you own late model German, British, Italian or Japanese marques these are your team. Late model Porsche, BMW, Mercedes, Audi, Volkswagon, you name it. Jaguar, Aston Martin, Range Rover/Land Rover, Bentley or Rolls...these guys are experienced and equipped. If you are into the vintage scene I don't think you are going to find master mechanic more experienced and knowledgeable than Phil, His knowledge is simply encyclopedic! It is a family run business and Phil's family have been in the vintage sports car and exotic arena for decades. Adam is a younger generation of very rare technicians who have learned the ropes by sheer work and exposure. His brother Scott is coming along too! Austin, MG, Triumph, Jag, Morris, Mini, Lotus, Aston Martin, Austin Heally,VW Bug and Vans, classic Alpha Romeo, Fiat, heck these guys even know a thing or two about rare french vintage cars such as Renault, Alpine and more! Are you into Detroit iron? no problem, Pony cars, muscle cars of the 70's all makes GM, Chrysler, Ford, Jeep. Got a vintage 4 x 4 or truck? Land Cruiser, Land Rover, Jeep? These fellas are fanatics for detail. They do amazing restorative work and the quality is concours level. If you have historic vintage cars such as Lotus, Aston Martin, Mercedes, Jaguar etc., you don't want to trust them to anyone except 101 European. Their whole team from Amy in front to Jeff in parts are the friendliest and most professional people in the auto repair and maintenance trade I have dealt with in a decade. They have earned my loyalty and I would recommend them to anyone, for ANY service needed from basic routine scheduled maintenance to complete nut and bolt frame off restorations! No kidding. I am a car nut myself and a red seal auto-tech and retired engineer. These guys are the real deal!!!

My 2013 VW Tiguan began running rough and the check engine light came on. The dealer did a 100k service and replaced plugs and a couple of coils. It ran fine for a few days and then the problems returned. The dealer said it would cost $1100 to manually clean the carbon off the valves. I looked around and 101 European had a treatment to clean the valves, cylinders and injectors without taking the engine apart. It cost less than half the dealer estimate and the engine runs so much smoother. I’m definitely coming back.
