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 two complete refinish systems. This is very atypical. All BMW and MINI products are refinished using BMW’s factory branded system known as “BMW Colorsystem”. 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.
German Motors Collision Center is conveniently located in the South of Market neighborhood of San Francisco. With easy access to the central freeway and plenty of free indoor parking, German Motors Collision Center is by far the easiest destination in San Francisco for auto body repair. German Motors Collision Center boasts the largest repair facility in the Bay Area and all vehicles are securely stored indoors during the entire process. Our technicians are certified by both The Inter-Industry Conference on Auto Repair (I-CAR) and BMW of North America.
Be careful in choosing a collision repair center for your BMW or MINI. German Motors Collision Center is the only Factory Certified BMW Collision Repair Center in San Francisco. This ensures that repairs are carried out according to specific required procedures. With the increasing use of exotic metals, high strength polyurethane plastics, carbon fiber or kevlar composites and bond-riveted support assemblies, proper repair techniques must be followed to guarantee that the safety and drive-ability of your vehicle are completely restored. All BMW and MINI repairs are covered by the BMW or MINI factory warranty.
