The Shop will be the only place I take my Mercedes from now on. I was very pleased with the service, the price and the professionalism. The other specialist told me that my 2012 was getting older and that the shuddering in the engine was not uncommon. With only 120k miles on it, I knew that was not the case. The technicians at the shop diagnosed and fixed it. It drives like it did when I bought it! Thank you!!

The attention to detail and quality of work is outstanding. The knowledgeable team at The Shop has been able to keep my BMW happy. From severe oil leaks to no start conditions, The Shop has been very informative and professional with each visit. I would recommend their exceptional service to any German car owner.
Chris Harlowe
Excellent, professional, timely service! Kelly was wonderful, explained the work needed. It was my second visit and Kelly and his team were friendly and gracious- I really needed gracious lately. Oh, and by the way, they washed my car that had easily 3-4 months of dirt build - up which included rims and armor all on the tires!!!!! My old mechanic of five years, three cars, and thousands of dollars in repairs never, ever washed my car. Thank you Kelly, I am a customer for life!
Phyllis Crum
Kelly and his team do an amazing job. The work is outstanding and FAST. I have taken my 96' e36 in to them for major and minor work. Prices and work are fair and honest. I will never go to another dealer or shop after coming here. If you have a passion for driving a well maintained BMW, take it to them. They will treat you right.
Brandon Leary
The Shop is a great euro auto mechanic shop for anyone looking to service their BMW'S. Kellys and his staff are very helpful, professional, and their pricing are by far the best and honest in the Richmond area.
John Gerena
These folks do a great job. They are now my primary service shop for my older but wonderful BMW Z3. They do what they promised, things always run great after they service it, it's ready when they say so, and if they need to honor a warranty, they do it without question. I feel like it's a really personal experience dealing with them and they care about my car as much as I do.

Inspection and oil change - routine, right? The staff at The Shop go above and beyond to make sure our 20 year old SL 500 is in the best shape possible. Without pressure they suggest maintenance issues and solutions. They perform the work and deliver a clean car that we can be confident will continue to carry us down the road. Thanks guys we’ll be customers for a long time!
Frank Strickler
My go to shop for my Mercedes maintenance. Very friendly, reliable and trustworthy service.
Kim Vogel
Just moved to Richmond and was looking for a good independent repair shop. Friend of mine recomended The Shop. Dropped off my 2014 BMW M6 for a weird intermittent electrical issue. Next day the team diagnosed and fixed the issue. They made my feel totally comforatable, kept me frequently informed, and had the car back before the July 4th holiday. Very happy and plan on bringing my other BMWs their for any needed service.
Steve Simmons
The shop has proved to be everything you want in a partner, consultative enthusiasts who take a long term view of the customer .
Glenn Dubiel
Brought my girlfriends mini in last week after getting an appraisal from the mini dealership in the west end. Not only were the guys at The Shop professional, they were honest. I paid to have the spark plugs changed out and do a standard oil change- the mini dealer wanted to flush my radiator, recharge the A/C and change the spark plugs. Ridiculous. Big thanks to The Shop for keeping it real!!
Mike Mistal
I found The Shop when I was having bad experience with other shops inexperience with Mini Cooper. I live in NOVA and drove down for this Appointment. It was the best service ever. I had to wait for my daughter to pick me up so one of the guys went and got me coffee. AWESOME!! I recommend them completely . Everyone was very friendly and knowledgeable .
Cindy Glynn
Adi and the guys at The Shop are great! They are knowledgeable and the prices are fair. I definitely trust them with my BMW. They are easy to deal with and are hassle free.
Dara Moeun
The shop is a wonderful place to go thay are very courteous and helpful to help you understand what's going on with your car and they fix it and then you get a 3-year warranty. Very honest is only place I take my BMW.
Ronald A Johnson
I have brought my car to The Shop on multiple occasions such as oil changes and fluid leaks. Each visit, the staff has been extremely helpful, friendly and quick. Coming from someone who doesn't know much about cars, they always do a great job explaining the situation and educating me on what the next step needs to be! I 100% trust the shop - would highly recommend. Love this place!
Bree A.
Have had a great experience every time I've brought a car to The Shop! Customer service is fantastic and the staff is all extremely well educated but can also explain the information to you. Prices are fair for really well done work. Super happy with the experience and will definitely be going back.

When it comes to BMW, MINI, and Mercedes-Benz auto repair, The Shop VA is your single-source automotive solution in Richmond, North Chesterfield, and Midlothian. Our factory-trained and Certified Master auto mechanics are auto technicians and experts at everything BMW, MINI, and Mercedes-Benz, and keep reading to see why.

At the Shop VA, we specialize only in BMW, MINI, and Mercedes-Benz auto repair. That means you get top-quality, factory-level auto repair and service performed by auto mechanics who work solely on your vehicle’s make and model. We’d rather be experts on BMW, MINI, and Mercedes-Benz, than mediocre on every other type of vehicle.

We’re not like many dealerships around Richmond, North Chesterfield, and Midlothian that work to get you out of warranty so they can sell you another car. Everyone at The Shop VA wants you to get the most from the vehicle you have -- at least 200,000 miles. That’s why we strongly recommend regular maintenance. We know that timely, ongoing maintenance can prevent costly breakdowns and prolong the life of your car. So, after inspecting your vehicle, we’ll work with you to create a sound maintenance plan based upon your specific circumstances.

At The Shop VA, our goal is to build long-term relationships based on honesty, integrity, and trust. With that in mind, we complete every repair promptly using high-quality factory-level parts and back our work with a three-year/36,000-mile warranty on parts and labor. We also make it our business to do more than fixing your immediate problem, as our highly-skilled auto mechanics perform complementary safety inspections on every vehicle that comes in our shop.

To make your experience as pain-free as possible, we provide shuttle service and loaner vehicles. We also offer towing services but after our exceptional auto mechanics take care of your car; we don’t think you will need them.

Outstanding BMW, MINI, and Mercedes-Benz auto repair and fantastic customer service -- that’s what you’ll find at The Shop VA. But don’t take our word for it. Here’s a recent review from one of our many satisfied customers:

“I've got an older 5 series that my wife drives, and she had been complaining about a transmission light and some grinding in the rear end for a while. Finally I decided to get it looked at. I found The Shop because of their signage on Midlothian turnpike. They were able to get my car in the next day and quickly diagnosed the issue for me. I spoke with Kelly, who broke down the costs and explained them very clearly. I felt comfortable with them working on my car and didn't feel like I was being taken advantage of. By the end of the day, the car was ready! No issues, and they even cleaned it up for me. I am very pleased with the customer service and work they did. I will definitely bring my wife’s car back and any other BMW we buy down the road. A+ Guys.” -- William N.
