Black Forest Automotivedetail

Black Forest Automotive is a specialty Porsche service, Mini service and BMW service shop in San Diego, California.  John Rickard has been specializing in Porsche and BMW service, repair and performance upgrades for nearly 40 years.  John and his staff of highly trained professional technicians service, repair and maintain Minis, BMWs and Porsches as well as full race Porsches and BMWs.

Black Forest is a high-tech, fully equipped service alternative to the dealers.  Personalized care for you and your car is what makes Black Forest unique.  We pride ourselves on our integrity, flexibility, and understanding of your specific needs.  We are constantly updating to the latest in high tech diagnostic tools and equipment.

Black Forest takes great pride in being honest and professional.  Accurate estimates are an important part of superior customer service.  A shop that routinely low-balls the cost of service to get customers in the door does a dis-service to themselves and to their customers who are never happy when the job costs more than estimated.  When you get an estimate from Black Forest, it is based on our years of service in the Southern California area.

Black Forest was established in the Kearny Mesa area of San Diego, California in 1975.  With our complete range of diagnostic, maintenance, overhaul, and repair services, including performance up-grades, for BMW, Mini and Porsche, we can help you.
