  • Empire Autohaus is a wonderful dealer alternative. They are competitively priced and demonstrate a mastery of their trade second to none. Alan and Karen truly are wonderful, genuine people who take pride in a job well done and always try to do the right thing. We have used them off and on for close to 8 years now for vehicles ranging from modern BMW E46 3 Series and Mazdaspeed MX5s to classics such as our MGB GT V8 and Fiat Spyder. The staff is always courteous and forthcoming with detailed information regarding the repair work they perform and the costs for the services and parts. If you are looking for a trustworthy dealer alternative in the Birmingham area that always provides top notch service, give these guys a call. You will not regret it.
