Meet the Team

Custom European has been serving the Orange County / LA community for over 25 years! We have earned a reputation for high quality repairs done quickly and conveniently at prices up to 30% less than a dealership!

Rely on us for service and repairs done to the specifications of the original manufacturer, so you have peace of mind that we will do it right, the first time, with the best parts. We can guarantee this because:

– We use Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) parts to guarantee the parts fit and perform as if they were put on by the original manufacturer themselves

  1. Our ASE Certified Master Technicians have also been certified in repair by Mercedes, Jaguar, Land Rover, BMW and Mini Cooper for repairs and services done the same way the manufacturer would do it
  2. Customers speak directly with the owner of the shop, for quick, honest discussions of how to best proceed with repairing or maintaining your car
  3. We stand behind our work with a 1-year/12,000 mile warranty on repairs for peace of mind and guaranteed long-term savings

We want to make things as easy and convenient as possible for you, so we offer:
– Loaner cars at no additional cost
– Free local pick up and drop off
– An air-conditioned customer lounge with a TV and wi-fi
– Late night and early morning drop off
– A clean environment
– A friendly and helpful staff

Using the latest, most advanced diagnostic equipment, we analyze the performance of your car’s components to keep it operating at its optimal performance. We share all analysis with our customers and advise them of issues that are coming up, but do not need to be addressed immediately vs. problems that could potentially leave them stranded on the side of the road.

Our service offering includes:

  1. Regular maintenance of your vehicle as directed by the manufacturer’s warranty (we will stamp your warranty booklet to show that you have been maintaining the car)
