Great mechanic, great shop. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a solid, honest place to get your car fixed. It won't get any better than this!!

Well it's 8 months later than my previous review. This time around my brakes were at the point that they finally needed to be replaced/worked on along with some other maintenance items on my list. It was a breath of fresh air to have someone like Christian work on my BMW. He's an incredibly knowledgable, talented, honest and fair mechanic/shop owner. I firmly believe in supporting small local businesses and this is one business I support. I am over the moon thrilled to find my forever mechanic and to not feel like I paid a mortgage sized bill at the end of my service. My car runs beautifully and I am one happy and relieved driver. It's gotta say/mean something when you read all the outstanding reviews on CS Motorwerks. Thank you, Christian.

A year ago I moved to Simi Valley from the San Fernando Valley. I had a great independent BMW shop I used, but I thought I could find another great shop in my new neighborhood. I took the recommendation a person who owns BMWs and has lived in the area for a long time. I tried the shop, but I had to make too many return visits to resolve issues with newly installed parts, and some other issues I didn't like. Next, I tried a nearby BMW dealership. I was also greatly disappointed. So far, it was two strikes and I was thinking of just returning to my old independent shop in spite of the drive. Before giving up, I decided to talk with some other BMW owners in Simi, stopping to talk with them on the street or in parking lots. I received three recommendations for Chris Sniady at CS Motorwerks, in Westlake Village. I did some internet research and liked what I saw, and decided to give Chris a try. Best decision I have made since moving to Simi. Chris is knowledgeable, friendly, and his prices are reasonable. He has worked on my car several times now, including an oil change, installing new motor mounts and new shock absorbers, plus helping me working out some issues with my headlights. If you are looking for a place where you can trust the person to care for your investment, look no further and go see Chris at CS Motorwerks.

Christian is knowledgeable and professional. I find him honest & trustworthy in repairing my 04 325. He is a little quiet at first and warms up quickly.

I brought an 06 325ci by CS Motorwerks for a pre-purchase inspection. I called the day before to ask if the shop might have a chance to take a look at it, and Christian said 'no problem - bring it in'. I drove up around noon, and although they had a full garage, he said he would be done within the hour. I left to find a cup of coffee - which was a little hard to walk to because the garage is in sort of an business office corridor - but whatever, I found a $7 coffee at the Four Seasons Hotel across the street. An hour later I returned and as promised, he had completed a *meticulous* inspection of the car. He explained to me what he had discovered and his opinion of the mechanical and cosmetic quality of the vehicle. The price for the inspection was less than I had expected relative to what I've paid previously. Critically, the effort, care, and thoroughness he put into his inspection was exceptional. Wait - $7 coffee ??!! I'll pay that every time to bring my BMW back to CS Motorwerks. Hell, I'll bring him a coffee too next time. I more than made up the cost in my confidence in the quality of the work, and the time I saved because he finished when he said he would. Good and trustworthy mechanics are hard to find. Those that also are affordable, especially for imports like BMWs and like are even more rare. Add in someone that will also take the time to explain their work and you've found a winner. In my opinion, this shop is exceptional.

Holy smokes! What a find! Thank you Yelp community for bringing me to this place! I've always taken my Z4 to the dealer - where I always feel like I'm spending so much more than I'm actually getting in return for maintenance and repairs. Finally decided to try this place and my car feels and drives even better than when I first bought it! Christian did an overall inspection; he will offer advice as to what's necessary and what can wait. He also took the time to explain in layman terms /show me what was causing the squeaks and leaks. And his pricing is pretty darn reasonable! This is how you get repeat business, folks!

Best BMW repair shop in Thousand Oaks. Professional and honest. So hard to come by these days. Thank you Christian.

I own a 2006 750Li. Would not take the car for service anywhere else. Save at least 1/2 off the dealer price for any service and Christian only fixes the things that really need to get done - no upselling like a dealer. He also takes the time to explain, in straightforward laymans terms, what he did, and why he did it. I recommend CS Motorwerks to all my friends that own BMWs that are out of warranty.

Thanks!
