Boston’s Local Independent Mechanic

Specializing in BMW, Porsche, and Mini.

About

Our Story

Founded in 2006 in Cambridge, MA, and located in Brighton since 2009, German Performance Service is a local independent mechanic, and BMW, Porsche, and MINI parts and repair facility. We have a 5,000 square foot repair facility that’s easily accessible by Green Line T, MBTA bus service, and the Mass Pike.

German Performance Service was founded on the idea that BMW, Porsche, and MINI owners in the Boston area need a dealer alternative with the same or better expertise. At GPS, we maintain a personal relationship with our customers, which is often missing in a dealership environment. GPS employees are skilled craftsmen and automotive enthusiasts. Our staff treat each car as if it were their own, communicate details of the repair process, and are always willing to explain each job from start to finish.

Our staff have combined experience of over 40 years caring for German cars.
