For as long as we can remember, we have loved cars. Especially working under the hood, fixing problems and improving performance. We have always been fans of the exceptional craftsmanship of Volkswagens and Audis and have had decades of experience working on those cars. We decided to come together to share our wealth of expertise and vehicle insight to provide incredible services to Central Arkansas. With over 33 years of combined mechanic and performance experience, we provide the type of specialty care that is truly second to none.


When we say we set the standard, that is what we mean! For years we have watched auto shops and dealerships push out as many cars as possible, constantly focusing on profits over quality. Our team is different. We have already made a mark in our careers and community. Now it is time to elevate the car repair and performance game by providing detailed services customers desire. 


As true VW/Audi aficionados, we understand your love for your car and want to do everything we can to keep it in exceptional condition. Simply put, we opened our auto shop because we care about quality.
