German Motors Collision Center is a full service vehicle repair destination. With over 78,000 square feet of shop space and over 50 employees, we are the largest collision repair center in the San Francisco Bay Area. All of our level one body technicians are certified welders and 100% of our technicians receive training from both BMW of North America and The Inter-Industry Conference on Auto Repair (I-CAR). Repairs are assessed using our proven “triage” process for damage identification and analysis. This ensures that an accurate “blue print” plan of the repair process is created prior to repairs beginning. A complete parts order is made the instant that the estimate is ready. Parts acquisition usually consumes the largest portion of the repair time. Every effort is made to keep this aspect of the job moving as smoothly and quickly as possible.
Being a “Full Service” facility, we find it necessary to employ mechanics in addition to our body technicians. We have three mechanics on staff. This allows us to perform nearly every aspect of collision repair. All wheel and tire work, alignments, suspension replacement, engine removal or replacement, and all general service work are done in-house.
German Motors Collision utilizes a unique, complete refinish systems. All BMW and MINI are refinished using “BMW Colorsystem,” BMW’s factory branded system. We are the only facility in San Francisco using this product and it is the only product whose usage is required by BMW and MINI to maintain the factory warranty. All other vehicle makes are refinished using the Spies-Hecker paint system. Manufacturers’ approval lists for Spies-Hecker include but are not limited to: Acura, Audi, Honda, Infiniti, Jaguar, Lexus, Mercedes, Porsche, Toyota, VW, and Volvo.
