"I took my 2008 Cayenne to Dieter's for the first time this morning for a regular service. It was a great experience. They were amazingly knowledgeable about Porsches- from my 2008 to the questions I had about a 1960's 356. And everyone, from the service professionals to the owner, took the time to answer all of my questions. Highly recommend."

"I have been a long time customer with Dieter’s. I have never been disappointed with the service here, not once! Traci is the sweetest person along with the rest of the staff. This is not your stuffy Porsche, BMW, Mercedes service shop. They talk to you like a friend and don't try to pressure you into unnecessary repairs. They lay it all out for you. this place!"

"Just took my 944 in to get a few things worked out. Overall I think it was the best experience I've had at a service shop. I met several team members including Steve and the owner; the entire team was great - very easy to talk to and very knowledgeable. I was impressed with complete explanations I received on every point, even my follow up and pre-service questions on email. Prices were fair, and the value I feel I received was very good. I'll go back."

"The only place I take my Porsche. Genuine and helpful workers, especially Tracy. These guys picked up my car from storage one time to replace the battery and then drove it back free of charge. Another time they came to my apartment parking garage and did a quick fix on site instead of making me get it towed. I also do my homework and have verified that their prices are as good or better for the same service as other people in the area. If you have a Porsche or German sports car and live in San Diego, you can feel safe taking it to Dieter's."

Yes, they are expensive. And, yes, they are very good and know what they are doing. That service cost(s) comes with the car, in my view.

Was filling up on gas at the 76 across the street and noticed this shop. I've had annoying tail light sensor indicator for some time and have replaced all of the bulbs... so I thought. I pulled in around lunch time and Tracy had a mechanic take a look and they quickly found and replaced the license plate bulbs... for the price of the bulbs only. I will certainly recommend them in the future and would use them regularly but I live about 20 miles away. I was very impressed on my first visit - thanks Tracy!

The Proven History of Dieter's Service

Dieter's 1935 History Shop Photo | Dieter's Porsche & BMW ServiceDieter's 1935 History Cars Photo | Dieter's Porsche & BMW Service

Our History at Dieter's of servicing great German automobiles goes back more than four decades. The beginning of our story, however, takes us even further back, to the town of Tilsit in East Prussia (Now Russia). This was where on December 5, 1935 our founder, Dieter Vongehr, was born. Through his childhood, Dieter was intrigued by all things mechanical, and in 1951 he began his apprenticeship at the Porsche/VW dealer in Troisdorf, near Cologne, about 500 miles from his birthplace.


In 1954, Dieter became a journeyman mechanic. He worked very hard, perfecting his craft until 1957, when he could no longer resist the call to come to America and realize his true dreams. After settling in San Diego, he started his first permanent job as a Porsche Specialist at San Diego Motor Imports.

Being a good stubborn German, Dieter did not see eye to eye with the way things were being handled at San Diego Motor Imports. His supervisor then suggested that maybe he should open his own shop. That was precisely what he did.
