BMW • Mercedes • Mini Cooper • Serving The Community Since 1990

We will be abiding by all COVID-19 guidelines. Stay safe & see you soon.

Berkeley Motor Works was founded in 1990 and is proud to have provided high quality auto repair in Albany since 2002. We offer industry leading BMW repair and maintenance services at our auto repair shop, which is conveniently located in Albany.

We started as an independent BMW repair shop, but have grown to appreciate and offer our services to Mercedes, Mini Cooper, and Porsche owners. Our dedication and love for BMW repair is what got us into the auto repair business, but the joy that comes from working with our customers and their different vehicles has kept us in the industry for over 20 years.

Whether your BMW, MINI, or Mercedes needs full service auto repair, minor car service, or helpful advice from our staff, our team will offer your vehicle the attention it deserves. Our founder and owner, Mike Schwarzbart, has this to say about the BMWs, MINIs and Mercedes we serve: "These cars are special. They get in your blood. Be it on a race track, freeway, a winding back road or around the block, they perform and are a joy to drive. Our job is clear cut: Keep them running at peak performance. This means our customers are happy and we, in turn, continue to compliment the integrity of three great marques, BMWs, MINIs, and Mercedes. "And that," he concludes, "you can take to the bank."

Berkeley Motor Works is a full service auto repair shop for BMWs, MINIs, and Mercedes---from the vintage 1960s classics to today's modern touring sedans. If you live or work near Albany, Berkeley, or Oakland and your BMW, MINI, or Mercedes needs attention, we can provide the car repair service you need.
