North Bay Bavarian is an incredible shop. I do a lot of work on my own cars, but when I don't have time or desire to do a specific job (or it's beyond my abilities), I bring my BMW and Mini here. Their team is incredible - They take the time to explain your options and their recommendations, and they don't try to oversell you on things that you don't need. They're prompt and stick to their timelines. I feel like they are a good value for the money. I have zero reason to even think about going anywhere else - that's about the best recommendation I can give!

If you own a bmw new or old and you have it serviced anywhere else you are doing yourself a disservice. They guys at north bay Bavarian have consistently showed me what it means to be an honest and reliable shop. I have a 1988 BMW and I wouldn’t trust anyone else with the constant list of mechanical needs. I’m all about supporting small local businesses and these guys are exactly why. James and Matt walked me through every step of the way and got me out the door 700$ under my budget, where else do you get that kind of honesty? I can’t recommend North Bay Bavarian enough, they certainly will have my business as long as I own a BMW/Mini.

Today was our second time here. They were highly recommended from another shop. Super friendly staff that is honest and helpful! We had a couple of warning/reminder lights that came on. They took at look, confirmed that we recently changed the oil (mileage wise) and reset the warning lights while topping the fluids to ensure all is working well. No charge, just smiles and wishing me well. I was in/out in 20 minutes. That guaranteed us as a return customer.

Not my regular shop but did a great job during an emergency. The price was high but for German car repairs, it usually is.

James and Matthew are first rate mini technicians! They are able to identify the problems quickly and repair your mini with skilled precision. Very pleased with my first experience at their shop.

My vehicle has only been out of warranty a little more than a year, so I had been asking friends and reading reviews about BMW repair shops that would do a good job for a fair price. The name that kept coming up was North Bay Bavarian. I had my first service there a year ago, and was amazed at the quality of work, and how comfortable they made me feel...even before I took my car in. I talked to James Row on the phone and mentioned several of my friends who have had cars serviced at North Bay Bavarian. James remembers them all, and has a personal story about each one.

Every time I've called for an appointment, they've made arrangements to get me in quickly and work around my schedule. If I tell them I need to wait for my vehicle, they start the service shortly after I arrive and finish in an acceptable time. They are also willing to chat with me in the waiting room while I wait for the service to be completed. It was like hanging out with old friends. Even though I hadn't been there in several months, it was like our conversation simply picked up where we left off at my last visit. And what other auto repair shop has Kombucha on tap in the waiting room?!

Visits to North Bay Bavarian are always pleasant, and reasonably priced.

This is s quality business where you are treated respectfully and provided full explanations for the services/repairs provided.

Their pricing may be higher than some BMW service providers in the community, but as the old saying goes "you get what you pay for" and in this case their customer friendly/quality approach is an added bonus. They have provided me with quality maintenance and upgrades for my M3.

More recently, they inspected my M3 just before the holidays for a sudden onset problem and did so in a welcoming fashion. My only regret, is that I did not, at that time, show a comparable appreciation for their efforts. This has prompted this well deserved appreciative acknowledgment!

Just amazing from start to finish! Called them on a Wednesday, Bryce put me at ease that they knew exactly how to handle an issue on our classic convertible top, dropped off the car next day, picked it up fixed on Friday. These guys know their stuff! We expected the car to be in for days for parts etc. Thank you for your excellent quality, high integrity work! We will be back.

In 2005, I was considering purchasing a 2001 325i BMW from a third party. A good friend of mine suggested I take the BMW to Rick Row at North Bay Bavarian and have them do an inspection before purchasing the car. Based on their inspection, I purchased the car.

I’ve taken my 2001 BMW to North Bay Bavarian ever since for regular maintenance, and with 305,000 miles, it’s still going strong.

The staff is always very professional and friendly. And most importantly, I trust these guys.

As someone who has loved, raced, owned, traded in BMWs for decades. As someone who even owned a BMW repair facility myself; I'm can confidently recommend North Bay Bavarian. They have a well rounded staff, with a wealth of knowledge and experience. They will never tell you your car needs something it doesn't, just to make a buck. They stand behind their work. As a family business, there's a continuity, that can't be found in other shops' the right hand knows what the left hand is doing. Modern high line automobiles can be very humbling, it's important to specialize, have the right equipment, training and experience to diagnose, without simply 'throwing parts' at the car in an effort to effect repairs. Getting it right the first time saves time and money.

North Bay handles my own race car, classic BMW and many cars for re-sale. I know the best eyes have assessed the vehicle, so I can feel good about condition.

In every context, in every market, there is the best.

When it comes to the authority on BMW (and MINI) in California's North Bay...you found it.

Always professional. Always quick. Always communicative. You won't have a car sitting here for long wondering what's wrong with it. They talk you through everything being done and when they give you a deadline -- they keep it. Couldn't ask for a better shop to work on my car.

They are always pleasant, efficient and stand behind their work. (We've gone there for multiple needs. Recently we had a tire replaced, which ended up having a faulty sensor. They had no problem replacing it and when the tire had a metal puncture a few months later they patched it up.) I'm really glad that we found them!

Terrific service and reasonable rates for maintaining my aging 2004 Mini Cooper S. I originally booked an appointment for just an oil change, during which the tech discovered leaking coolant. Upon closer inspection, there was a small crack on the backside of the reservoir not visible from the front, which cracked wide open while being removed. Replacing the reservoir only took an additional 20 minutes and saved my engine from a potential disaster down the road. Definitely recommend North Bay Bavarian.

Matt, James and the entire North Bay staff are five star. We have been a customer of theirs since moving to this area five years ago for all our BMW cars.

North Bay consistently performs at the same masterful and professional level whenever my 20 year old Z needs repair or maintenance. Maintenance and repairs are done right the first time and on the schedule promised. This is a professional and trustworthy car shop.

These guys are the BEST! Their father owned the business before them. I’ve heard old-timers speak of him as a man of integrity. I’ve been seeing Matt & James since I bought my first BMW … 25-30 years ago. Their mechanics have the same training as the mechanics at the dealers. Matt & James recognize my voice when I call. As a woman, I insist that I drive a very very safe & reliable car. Matt & James have integrity, honesty and a team committed to good hard work. They do a great job and I completely trust them and recommend them. Bryce is an excellent mechanic on the team, I joke and say that my car is his car … I think he knows all the “in’s & out’s” of my specific car. These guys are good men, raising families, contributing to the community. When I occasionally need road-side-service for a small matter, all of those mechanics who probably know all the dealers in town always say, “OH YES, MATT & JAMES AT BAVARIAN MOTORS ARE THE BEST AROUND, IT’S GOOD YOU WORK WITH BAVARIAN MOTORS FOR THEIR OUTSTANDING RELIABLE SERVICE FOR YOUR CAR.” These guys are friendly, caring, professional and 5-STARS. A fair price for very good work.

North Bay Bavarian BMW is an independent BMW service provide, We have used them for our BMW s for last years since we had moved to Santa Rosa..

I highly recommend North Bay Bavarian. They are hands down the best BMW repair experts around. Their customer service is also second to none.

North Bay Bavarian doesn’t have a shuttle, fancy coffee, or a shiny showroom, but they DO have skilled mechanics, friendly service and fair pricing! I brought my car in for excessive road noise thinking it might be a suspension issue. It ended up being just excessive tire pressure (and bad roads!). Even though the bushings were worn, they weren’t in need of replacement yet. That’s good, honest service.

I’ve been coming here for years with all my BMWs, these guys know what they’re doing and they get it done fast. In my case, they installed my KW V1 coilover kit and custom steering wheel on my F32 in one day. The car handles and drives great, and special thanks to Brett, Bryce, and James.

Honest, helpful and such great service! They even offered me a loaner for the day, and at the BMW dealership , I would have to schedule at least 4-6 weeks ahead of time for a loaner. Sometimes you can't predict when your car needs repairs! I would recommend North Bay Bavarian !

Excellent service and honest and professional people. I highly recommend NBB. We have 2 BMW cats that need service and repairs. Both times we received a fair price and they went above and beyond in helping us get our car back and forth as my husband doesn't drive. Thank you for your kindness and great service
