Over the past year, I purchased two used Mini Coopers - not knowing that it would be difficult to find a place that I could trust to take good care of them for me. I happened upon Foreign Car Specialists - thank goodness! I had a wonderful experience with them so far. The staff made me feel comfortable and I really loved the system that they use to communicate the diagnosis and estimate for the issues found and recommended. You get photos and a complete description of the issue and resolution. The estimate process allows you to accept or decline the recommended fixes. My car was fixed within 24 hours and I'm happy with the results! So happy I have a place I can trust with my Minis!

Brilliant mechanics and thoughtful modifications done expertly by Kevin and crew. Latest job on ‘66 Beetle involved transmission replacement, resealing of engine casing, conversion to electronic ignition, alternator pulley/belt tensioner kit, addition of screw-on oil filter and repair of sunroof. Everything is perfect in my 55 year old car now. Thanks Kevin and crew!

Thank you Glenn!!

Expertise is rare and I've found it here @Foreign Car Specialists. Kevin guided my '66 Beetle through engine and transmission overhauls and upgrades and it's better than ever! Transmission failure presented the opportunity to address nagging oil leaks. Engine case was split open, front seal replaced, cylinders reseated, case sealed up, oil strainer cover replaced with billet aluminum plate - not one drop of oil leaking now, and that's a first. Alternator belt and pulley upgrade with ribbed tensioned belt which looks cool and maintains tension. Exhaust manifold was found to have a small hole(!) which was welded, glass beaded and then painted hammered steel. All engine tin was cleaned and sent out for powdercoating. Finally, a threaded oil filter was added and everything looks and runs beautifully. Before taking the car back I begged Kevin to

I have a new to me old VW Camper. I knew it needed some work, but did not know any reliable shops near Orange County that people trusted with these types of vehicles. Then I came across Foreign Car Specialists and the independent reviews by past classic VW owners. The reviews got me to the door, the people at Foreign Car Specialists will keep me coming back. Glen at the desk was so thorough when making the appointment. Once there I was blown away by the photos with drawn arrows and the written explanations for their recommendations they sent to me on my cell phone. I had a few more questions and once again Glen explained the recommendations. There was no guesswork on my part for any of the experience. Everything was transparent and understandable. Unlike other shops I've been at, I never felt any pressure to accept all the recommendations. When I went to pick up the camper, Kevin and I talked at length about the repairs and future trips to be taken. I really got the feeling Kevin, Glen and the rest of the crew at Foreign Car Specialists enjoy their craft and the challenges some of these non-traditional vehicles present. Those are the characteristics of the shop I want to go to. I will definitely continue to use them and would would highly recommend Foreign Car Specialists.
