About Bavarian Auto Haus

Established in 1996 in Shell Beach, we’ve been servicing German cars for you and your neighbors for over 20 years. Providing the best value for your money has always been our goal–not low cost. We use the best quality parts and we don’t take shortcuts. We care about keeping you and your investment in the best shape possible.

Owner, BMW Master Technician and ASE Master Technician Eric Wahl has been taking care of European automobiles since 1975. He worked for Santa Maria VW from 1975-1983. Moving to Reno NV in 1983, he worked for Western Motors until 1989 when he opened Bavarian Auto Haus in Reno. From 1989 until 1995, he took care of the needs of his BMW-owning customers. Since 1996, Bavarian Auto Haus has been the best choice of European car owners on the Central Coast. Although most people know Eric, they don’t realize that his highly trained team is the reason their car is fixed correctly and on time!

In 2015, we made a business-altering decision to improve our customer experience. We moved our shop to Arroyo Grande, on Traffic Way. The new facility is larger, cleaner, and more professional. We will still deliver the same quality service at a good value, but in a more comfortable environment for our customers. Please call and make an appointment for your vehicle and see what’s new!
