• Purchased a 2005 S55 AMG from European Specialties in January 2015. Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think I'd own such a car. Like most every car they sell, it was in mint condition with very low mileage. We simply could not pass it up. Absolutely no regrets and the after purchase service and support has been top notch. So much so that when I required a car for my commute to work I went right back to them for another car I never thought I'd ever own, a 2001 Audi A4, once again, pristine and very low mileage. I have not regretted either purchase. I encourage others to check them out. It is worth the effort.

  • Knowledgable, friendly and professional is the way to describe European Specialites and Caleb's no pressure! We have been looking for a BMW convertible and took a drive to see a 3 series and instead bought the 2009 red Z4 off the showroom floor! Caleb even delivered it Victoria for us! Fantastic customer service! We are extremely happy with the Z4, take a drive to European Specialties you will be glad you did ?,

  • Thanks for the consistently great customer service. You fit me in around my crazy schedule and always look for ways to save me money. My car came back on time and cleaned inside and out. But the best part was that you took the extra time to go over my invoice in detail. Thanks for being professional and friendly - more businesses should take a page out of your book!

  • I would like to express to you how pleased I am with my recent purchase with European Specialty Automotive On March 27 2017 I came to European Specialty to test drive a 2011 Mercedes Benz GLK 350. When I arrived Caleb promptly greeted me and proceeded to take me through one of the most pleasant and informative car buying experiences. Going beyond the extra mile to ensure my piece of mind and satisfaction, made it a pleasure dealing with European Specialty. Caleb took the time to go through every measure to ensure that his service delivery was impeccable from start to conclusion. Exceeding the customer satisfaction by providing extras into my vehicle without additional cost was much appreciated. I have no doubt that I will once again return to European Specialty Automotive when I am ready to upgrade. Thank you, for providing me with such a positive customer experience. It was a pleasure doing business at European Specialty Automotive and I hope that the relationship I have developed with your company will be a longstanding one.

  • Impressed with the staff. My 03 911 problem was quickly diagnosed and fixed. Even though it took longer than the quote they honoured their original labour quote. A company with integrity.

  • Thank you again to you and everyone at European Specialty for all the help getting my BMW through the import process and recovered from my “rocking” incident. Every single person on your staff went above and beyond for me and I appreciate it. Very helpful in assisting in moving my car back and forth from my house so I could save some $ in doing some of the items myself and saved me from ICBC permits. George was great at keeping me up to date and letting me help find the needed parts. Phil worked with parts that were impossible to work with and endured and got it all together despite the grief my car gave him and Cory delayed his lunch to help fix a minor shifting issue when I just dropped by to have it looked at. Great service all around – I look forward to having this BMW serviced at European Specialty as well as my future cars as I upgrade in the years to come. Thank you!Now that my car is on the road I’m starting to spread the word to my colleagues, business contacts and friends that I’m ready to provide services for real estate needs, residential and commercial in Nanaimo and the surrounding areas. If you come across any colleagues, customers, friends or family that are looking at buying or selling in Nanaimo or surrounding areas I’d love to have the chance to meet with them to share how my services can help them.Buying or Selling? COD – Call On Dan J Thanks again – it’s always a pleasure to deal with the whole crew there at European Specialty

  • Caleb and European Specialty Automotive Services did an excellent job of getting my '91 M5 back on the road after breaking down on the highway from Victoria on a trip from Vancouver. They went out of their way to accommodate my situation, complicated as it was by having to return to Vancouver and then pick up the car on a weekend. In addition to fixing the original problem, they also identified and dealt with some minor mechanical and cosmetic issues that actually had a big overall impact on the car, making it feel years younger.
