CS Motorwerks is by far the most honest and best BMW shop to work with! I wouldn't think about ever going anywhere else. I highly recommend!

After having grown tired of driving all the way out to the valley to get my car serviced, I recently decided to give this place a try for an oil change and possibly more as the needs arise. I was a bit reluctant and nervous because the whole area is known to be on the pricey side. Well I am happy to report that it was actually less than what I was paying in Reseda! Christian greeted me in the office and has that perfect balance of professionalism and casualness that is necessary to make clients feel comfortable. I always worry about trying new car places out because I am a woman and have many times been taken advantage of the fact that I really know nothing about cars. CS Motorwerks did exactly what I went there for and didn't finish by giving me a list of things I "need" to fix right away. Christian let me know normal wear & tear things to keep my eye on and when I asked about pricing for a bung window I have, his quote was like half of what I thought it'd be. Nice, peacefully quiet location. Clean and courteous staff. I am officially their "regular" customer. If you're wondering if you should try them out, I will guess that you won't regret doing so :)

CSmotorwerks is by far the best independent BMW shop. I've been Christian's client ever since he opened the shop in Westlake Village. Maintenance work or repairs are performed better then at the dealership, faster and at very fair prices. As other reviewers stated, it is worth the extra few miles drive to get your BMW serviced by a highly trained specialist. Many issues with my 740i were addressed here: power steering, steering components (arms, bushings, etc), cooling system (radiator, expansion, water pump, hoses, etc), air intake (gaskets, MAF, sensors, etc),belts, brakes, oil changes, light housings, exterior trim installation, windshield gasket, etc. Everything done right the first time. Very highly recommended.

Took my '03 BMW to CS Motorwerks because it was turning over but not starting up. Was fearful of what the problem could be, but Christian was able to quickly diagnose it and solve the problem without major work being done. I will be coming back for sure, excellent customer service and very knowledgeable. Thank you!

CS Motorwerks is a gift from above for those of us with BMWs that are out of the dealer service period - in my case an '04 M3. These cars can start getting expensive to maintain, especially the M3 with its periodic valve adjustments. CS Motorwerks isn't cheap, but they charge considerably less than a dealer, for much more diligent work. Christian and his team have all the BMW certifications and training, but are focused on delivering value to their customers, not to a large dealer. They will do what needs to be done, not what will make them money. They will do it very thoroughly and well, and they will do all this at a lower rate than a dealer would charge. Having found CS Motorwerks (conveniently only about a mile from my house), I feel like I'll be able to keep my car for a few more years, knowing that it'll be well taken care of.

This has to be one of the best auto repair places I have ever come across is nearly 50 years of driving. I took my son's 2004 325ci into the shop for an oil leak. Chris Sniady (owner and principal tech) could not have been more pleasant, responsive and fair. This was the second car we have brought (2008 528 for a battery replacement) and have had nothing but the best results. There is no doubt this is the place to take your BMW for repair and is far better and less expensive than any dealer. By the way as of my visit on 1-2013 he has a new address that may not be on Yelp, 31129 Via Colinas, unit 701 Westlake Village, CA. - Just the next building to the west of his previous location.

Christian is a talented and knowledgeable auto mechanic, and his prices are fair. He recently serviced my 2002 BMW 330ci for almost half of what another shop in Thousand Oaks was asking. He completed the work quicker than he originally thought and his communication was excellent. I would highly recommend his shop.

CSmotorwerks is hands down the best BMW shop to go to. I have had several things done to my 2005 325ci over the last 2.5 years including Inspection I service, new starter, front bushings replacement, body control module replacement, diagnostics etc. The dealerships have always given me the run around and talked to me like I didn't know what I was talking about because I'm a woman. Chris was very upfront and honest from the very beginning, he went above and beyond to resolve my issues and costs so much less than the dealerships. I trust Chris so much that I used to drive from Orange County 70 miles to have my car serviced there and I recently moved to the San Francisco Bay Area and now drive 400 miles when I come to southern California to have my car repaired because I haven't found a shop up here that I can trust yet. Chris is always available to answer my questions and give me great honest advice. I recommend everyone with at BMW to see him even the ones that also live far away because it's WORTH it!
