About Our Shop in Berkeley, CA

Home Of the European Import Specialists

For the past 45 years, we at H&B Karmakanix have prided ourselves on European car repair and maintenance. We are dedicated professionals that diagnose and repair your vehicle and stand by our work 100%.

We’re Growing & Learning

Our early days consisted of fixing German makes like BMW, Audi, VW, and the little British Mini Cooper. Over the years, we’ve ventured out to include more European models like Alfa Romeo, Jaguar, Land Rover, and Aston Martin, among others. Because our services have expanded, our technicians go through rigorous training to stay up-to-date on the latest diagnostic accessories. Our team is composed of European specialists with years of experience. All of our technicians are ASE-certified to handle any and all repairs thrown at them. Our customers want their vehicles fully maintained, and we set about a plan to ensure vehicle health for years to come. Even if you have an older Audi Quattro or BMW 635, our technicians will have your classic vehicle a full inspection to determine if there are any issues.

Complimentary Loaner Vehicle:

To receive a complimentary loaner vehicle, you will need to provide a major credit card, your driver’s license, and your insurance card. Be sure the name on all of these documents does match. Courtesy vehicles must be returned with the same level of fuel at time of rental. If the vehicle returns with less fuel, a fee of $5/ gallon will be charged to your credit card.

BART Shuttle Service:

BART Shuttle Service is also available to our customers who would prefer to not use a courtesy vehicle. When your vehicle is complete, we will gladly pick you up. Shuttle service runs daily from 8:30a.m.- 4:00p.m.
