I've taken my BMW to Dieters in the passed and always get great service. It's under new ownership, I met the new owner Abraham and he's a very nice and knowledgeable guy and so is the the staff. I definitely will continue using them. Their prices are fair and very reasonable. Thank you

I have been a long time customer with Dieters. 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!

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.

I'm over a month late writing this review, but here's my tale: On 12/9/14 while picking up my boyfriend at the airport, my car got stuck in 1st gear. We live in north county, but our plans for the day had been to sneak off for lunch and then to a hotel for some RnR since he'd been out of town for weeks on end most of Oct & Nov. We pull into the nearest gas station from outside the airport and assess the situation. Search on google and find the nearest Mercedes mechanic is on the other side of downtown, but we can get there on surface streets. Miraculously, when turning the car back on at the gas station, it starts to shift again, but we still make a beeline for Dieter's. Right away the owner greets us, the lady who answered the phone is ready to check us in and the dedicated mercedes mechanic comes out to see what's up. $99 for a full diagnostic and about an hour. Meanwhile we are starving so we ask if there is anywhere we can walk for lunch while they look at the car. I think the disappointment showed on our face as they mentioned what was around so the owner says "Where were you going to for lunch?" Blue Water over on Columbia. "I'll give you a ride, drop you off and come back to get you." WHAT??? Now, how flipping amazing is THAT? Midway through our lunch, he calls to tell me it was just the battery going out that caused the electronic system to not properly shift the transmission. They can put a new one in before lunch is over! Wow! We arranged a pick up time, he was there as planned and took me back to my completely fixed car. On top of that, the mechanic ran all the diagnostic messages for me, reset a bunch that were just a result of the shorting out battery and wrote out what I needed to get fixed within the next 1000 miles. Yes, it was $400 for a new battery - BUT - it's Mercedes and just having the peace of mind to know exactly what was even coming up in the future was a huge relief! I wish I lived closer - they would get all my business on my '02 C320 wagon.

I feel pretty lucky to have found this shop since moving to SD. They are less expensive than the dealer and I feel confidant in their expertise. Since I bought a 2007 BMW X3 with almost 100,000 miles on it, I've needed some things replaced, like spark plugs, break pads etc. Every time I've brought it in I've been impressed w how friendly everyone is and how quickly they get me back on the road. Today, they dropped me off at home and picked me up to return me to the shop within 3 hrs.. Such a pleasure and yup, I'm back on the road all fixed up!

I called on a Friday night, and they took my car on Monday morning. They fix the problem the same day (brake switch needed to be changed), diagnosed and quoted another issue that I asked them to look into and gave me a better diagnosis and a cheaper pricing than my usual mechanic rated 5 stars on Yelp as specialized in German cars. They gave me a very detailed explanation of what the problem was and the steps to fix it. My regular mechanic didn't investigate the problem, he just went with the easy answer which was $200 more expensive and not the issue. They also quoted another issue I have with the turn signal element. They also did a complete safety inspection on the car, filled the fluids. So let me summarize: - Changed the brake switch - Investigated an electrical issue on the driver's seat - Investigated and quoted an issue with the turn signal element - Did a complete safety inspection - Filled all the fluids - Gave me a ride back home (with their own car mind you, not with another customer's car like my regular 5-star Yelp mechanic) All of this for $180. I have a BMW and a Porsche, this is the first time I get out of a shop for less than $500. People complaining about their pricing should probably consider buying another brand... if you need any work done or any part on those cars, it's going to be expensive - did you say luxury? Their hourly rate is the same as anywhere else.
