German Auto Specialists specializes exclusively in the sale of parts, maintenance, repair, and modification of BMW and Porsche automobiles. We are located in the ‘Nimitz district’ of Honolulu—near the airport. We perform all types of diagnostics and repairs, including: engine, transmission, electrical systems, suspension, brakes, and air conditioning. We perform all scheduled maintenance and services. We also offer vehicle pre-purchase inspections.

Established in 1985, we have been in business for over 30 years, and prior to that time had been serving Hawaii as a BMW and Porsche wholesale parts distributor. We are a small, family owned and operated, low volume facility which stresses quality and attention to detail over all else.
