What makes Spotlight Automotive different from other shops or dealerships around the area? What makes us special? Well, at our facility, we don’t focus solely on your vehicle.

Our Customers Say It Best
Awesome service at this shop. Fair priced with responsible and competent mechanics. The owner is a really nice guy to deal with. Know how to fix Porsche cayenne properly without breaking the bank at a dealers.
Had a great experience with the team there. They made the transaction easy and stress free. Also provided concierge service, which was a nice touch. The work itself was excellent and no complaints
10/10 great guys brought them all the parts and they did a labor only quote that was half the amount of everyone else and did an excellent job the first time around. Great group of folks would trust them with my Lexus anyway!
Alright, so if you are new to Chicago and trying to figure out where to take your BMW (I have a 2009 BMW 750Li) let me save you the trouble, as I have been to the others, in fact 4 of the others (Bimmer, Bavarian, European & American Motor Repair, and called M&R they will not do 7 series) and Spotlight is by and bar the best in the bunch.

They were fast and honest. I use these guys every time my car needs some love.
I have being going to Spotlight for years. They are always timely, reliable, honest, and fair. I recently brought my car in for something and they didn't even charge me! Nice, professional, client-oriented business. I strongly recommend Spotlight.
Versus to most mechanic shops in the area, I was able to make an appointment and be seen within a week. I appreciate that they were quick and efficient. For a US made car, I would definitely recommend.
Spotlight Automotive Services has been great to work with. I have a 2008 Mercedes and this is my 2nd visit. They are prompt and their are no surprises about the services performed. I have recommended Spotlight to my friends b/c of my experience and satisfaction.
They really fix foreign cars here! Even the dealers fraudulently repair the vehicle, either not fully diagnosing, damaging or not securing other parts they had to remove when fixing the vehicle. These guys are reasonable in price and troubleshoot well.
Been to Spotlight 2-3 times, each has been an amazing experience, the owners and staff know there way around German cars and do quality work! I have done fairly routine work like oil changes and spark plugs, as well as brake install, engine modifications with aftermarket parts, as well as work on the suspension and finally body work as well. Each experience has had zero complaints, very responsive owner and above and beyond customer service! My BMW 435i is running better then the day I drove ... Read More
