unexpectedly above and beyond !. I bought a 2001 Boxster a year ago in LA, then moved here in May and have not driven it since. It sat in the garage pretty much since then (over 6 months), and when I tried to drive it in early December it would not start. Didn't know any Porsche mechanic in town, so I went by these reviews. Sokol was truly above and beyond. Not only did he fix the problem, he did it the hard way - another mechanic might've just told me that I needed a new battery, and charge me for it. But Sokol persisted over two days, and the car was able to be revived. Not only that, one of the buttons in my car key had malfunctioned and prevented the gas tank flap to open at all. He also saved me a few hundred bucks' worth and valuable time from having to take the car key to the dealer by fixing this problem too - for free. And before I actually took the car to his shop, he lent me his battery jumper so I could try to do it myself (which worked, but only got the car started once). I would highly recommend this shop to anyone!
Best Independent Euro techs in SF. I have owned Vw's, Audi's and BMW's and am a gear head myself. I used to do basic repairs on my own cars (brakes etc.) when I knew someone who had a lift at a shop but that is no longer available. I recently had to take my parents 01 VW Golf in for repairs as it had a check engine light. Sokol and his team made a great impression on me from the start, they were friendly and attentive. Sokol explained what they were going to do and told me they'd give me a call once they had a diagnosis. The next day Sokol called back and let me know the cause of issue and he also noticed somethings that the dealer service had missed (replacing a fuel filter). He told me the car would be ready EOD and it was! All I can say is very knowledgeable techs and great customer service! Sokol also pointed out some issues on the car that were not urgent but things I should look out for. Now that's what I call a great tech, someone that takes initiative and has attention to detail. Also the pricing was very fair and much lower than quotes I had received from dealers and other independent shops. I HIGHLY recommend Euro Motorcars and will be going back there for sure!
Great find if you own an Audi Porsche BMW or Mercedes. BMW PORSCHE AUDI if you want one stop service for them than you need Euro Motorcars. Well deserved 5 stars. First I found them on Yelp. ouch yes on Yelp. I serviced my Mercedes there and service was great. While there I found out the owner?? Sokol was a Master Mechanic with extensive experience on Audi and Porsche.Lucky me my daughter has an Audi my wife a Porsche Boxter S.. He serviced them both within few days. Here to give you some price comparisions. His 80k service service on my daughter's Audi $500.00 dealer quote $899.00. My wife's 60 k service $650.00 Porsche Dealer quote $1100.00. You do the math. My buddy Mark repaired his BMW 540 I there (with my recomendation) He said to me thx budd great find. And believe me Mark is very hard to please he is an.. bout his car. Euro pricing is very fair and job quality excellent. Kudos to sokol
Thank you for your nice review. Thx for also sending your pal here.
Best Car Mechanic in San Francisco.....Over 15 Years trained by Porsche Dealer.
Today was the day after Thanks Giving and lucky for me, Sokol answered the phone and was open for business as he took took care of my Porsche for many years at the Oakland Dealership whose business is now closed. Thanks to Sokol, the owner of Euro Motorcars I was able to get my car repaired and done is good hands as he has over 15 years working on Porsche cars and trained by Porsche Dealerships. I came in with a blown coolant mechanism and it turned out my engine block was cracked and needed to be replaced which he recognized and repaired. Everything was done that day and I was able to drive the car away with the confidence of having my car close to new again. Thanks so much Sokol...its nice to have confidence in a Mechanic that knows his stuff and gets things done the right way. I even got a discount for being a first time customer to his new shop.....beats paying an arm and a leg to the Dealership!
Thanks again....Your new customer for life. Dr. Rob
Thx for the nice review.Pleasure was mine to fix your car. Im glad I was able to help. Im glad you found me and I found you. Cause every mechanic needs a good chiropractor. (especially if you are like me working on cars since I was 14 yrs old) Im sure that sooner or later I will be needing your services also. I live and work in San Francisco, so beside taking care of my customers I always get done all my busines's or family needs through local San Francisco service providers.
One more time thx Rob
Reliable shop to go.
I should have done this review sooner, but since I never wrote a review online it took me awhile to get it through.
?Thank you, Sokol? I have my headache gone.
I?m a Volkswagen lover, but my car did not treat me the same way. It has different small and big problems since I bought it. I have been patient and trying to deal with it until recently the ?check engine light?. First I failed the smog check without knowing I would fail anyway, then spent $300 to replace the coolant temperature sensor, but it?s still on. I went to several shops. Codes were pulled out, P0420, P0171? I was told by the professional ?dealer? that I had to replace CAT that would cost $1000, ?. I was frustrated and hopeless. I am a girl and know nothing about cars, but I had to start learning from the info on the web, CAT, sensors, mass airflow?. But I have to have it pass the smog!
I told Sokol, ? I have to trust someone?, after I found his shop online. He checked it, replaced some parts, did this and that ?., and most important, it?s fixed and passed the Smog!!!. Nice job! He even replaced my broken oil try for FREE!! Nice guy.

Thx for great review. I gave you a free oil pan parts and labor cause you were woman,child seat on back and very frustrated with other car shops.I usually do not do that.Lesson learned DO NOT USE 15 MINUTES PLACE OIL CHANGES UNLESS YOU KNOW THEM WELL. As far as engine light. Dealer was blind that did not see that engine light was trigger by p0171. (THAT could be seen on car freeze frame data) . So i fixed p0171 and made the car to pass smog. It is a possibility that p0420 could return and than a catconverter will be needed, however, you do not condem a $1000.00 part without running a short test.(specific test to test that system) (my guess is whoever checked your car at DEALER either was not qualified enough, or had a rough night and was to lazy)Anyway, for now smog is passed you on road happy. And Im happy that was able to help, . THX SHERRY
Excellent service and prices. I have an older Audi so it can get expensive but Sokol provides more than dealer quality service at prices well below dealer levels. He is also great about educating me about the car and how to keep it running well.
Im glad I was able to help.It gets a lil harder to keep on life support an Audi with over two hundred thousand miles. So as car ages I always try to lower the price on price menu so it kinda follows the depreciation value of the car.Anyway, was great dealing with you.and thx for the great review
A real professional.
Since I base many of my choices from the testimonials of others, I wanted to share my experiences with Euro MotorCars.
When I brought my 2001 Audi A4, I was panicking. I just purchased this car and found out after that the 1.8Turbo had a series of sludging problems and blown motors. My engine oil pressure light was coming on and I thought my engine was about to go (which would mean I would lose a huge amount of money on my car for a new motor). A bad, very bad scene...
Just like I read here, Sokol, the owner listened to me completely and helped walk me through the steps of what could be the possible remedies. From the moment I drove up the ramp, it was like I had a family member in the auto business. He took care of my care, performed basic (needed) service, a new timing belt, plugs, water pump etc and also tried to find out why the oil light was coming on. He told me of the Audi extended warranty on this vehicle (did not know this) and even contacted a dealer on my behalf in case it would come to that.
He was unable to duplicate the problem in the shop, however I did 30 miles later. And upon his initial idea of running an engine flush, Idid just that. The car now has an additional 1,700 hundred miles since seeing him a month ago and no more engine oil light. My car is running great!
What prompted me to write this review was just a few days ago he called me to see how my car was doing. Four weeks after seeing him. Now that is the kind of service I can believe in and I wanted to share that.
Give him a call or drop the by shop, he has the credentials as he does really seem to care.
One more time thx for nice review, and Im glad your new car is working fine for you. Is always pleasure for me dealing with customers like yourself. Feel fre to call me any time in my cell if you ever will need help with extended audi warranty on this well known issue.
Anyway, enjoy your car and also good luck with your own business.
take care Sokol

Best Audi Shop In San Francisco.
The guys were great. I moved here from Italy . My poor baby 2003 Audi S4 got sick. I took it to Euro Motorcars after trying twice a local dealer. After I met Sokol the shop owner I was at ease. Without wasting anytime he checked my car and within 20 minutes I had a quote on job.Within 2 hours I was out of there.He reminds me of my brother who is also mechanic in Italy and always fixed my cars when I lived back in Europe.MyAudi will never go anywhere else.
Thank you Arabella. You were very kind and plasure to fix your car was mine.
Outstanding!!! I'll never go anywhere else....
This shop is outstanding.... OUTSTANDING. Took great care of my car, great care of me.
I took my 2005 VW for service and Sokol (the owner) is amazing - a real gem. Super nice guy, honest, really up-front about everything. I know nothing about cars - normally, I walk into a shop and get ripped off immediately. Sokol found a warranty problem with my car - he could've totally ripped me off. Instead, he actually went out of his way to work with the local dealership to make sure they repaired my car under warranty (in other words, he went out of his way to make sure I didn't get ripped off by ANYONE). I couldn't believe it. I've never gotten such good, thorough service from ANYONE in San Francisco (for anything).
Not to mention - my *dealership* actually told me he was a great mechanic (that's not an endorsement they give out lightly).
He took great care of my car, fixed a bunch of annoying little things (burnt out bulbs, etc) all for an extremely reasonable price. I feel fortunate I found this shop - I'm a customer for life.
Thx for all good words. Sorry for the initial mishap at the dealer. But they finally woke up and fixed it for free. They should done it from get go.I wish I knew a better VW dealer but seems they are all the same . And I guess you got to keep eyes open.
Anyway no worries ,I'm always thankfull of a loylal costumer like you. Take care sokol
