Fantastic shop! Been taking my cars there for the past three years and have never regretted it once. Whether it's adding modifications to my car or getting an oil change, James, Sean and Tal are awesome and will bend over backwards to help you out. And the fact that their technicians are top notch just makes ACG a no-brainer if you want to take care of or even enhance your car. Would recommend these guys with no hesitation at all!

I wanted to share my experience with ACG automotive with other guys like me who are looking for a reliable place that will take care of their car as if it was their own,i had experienced other auto shoppes in the past where service was lacking,not at ACG,James and Tal are great to work with,they answered all my questions(and those are never ending) i was doing a very large build on my car that kept getting bigger as time went by,i felt very comfortable with adding stuff as we went on,James and Tal kept me informed of the progress as it went along,always steering me in the right direction,they both recommended new ideas to improve things as they progressed,they made me feel comfortable and confident as if they are working on their own car. if you are looking for a reliable shop to work on that beloved car of yours you are in the right place.
Highly recommended shop.
Would I come back? Hell yes.

I learned about ACG through some performance sites and went to them for some tuning on my car. Tal was great to work with and provided great options and recommendations. Their staff are experts and I was glad to learn that that my car was taken care of by a Mercedes trained technician. They provided great customer service and even took care of an exhaust fitment issue at no cost to me. I really felt as if they valued my business even though my mods were mild compared with the exotics they had in the shop. Their shop was very impressive and organized. They also have a Mustang dyno on site. I will definitely be coming down to ACG for all my tuning needs!
Been taking my cars here for the past 3 years and never have I ever been disappointed. Open, honest and friendly. The whole staff is knowledgeable on all aspects of the automotive industry. Beyond that their facility is state of the art, organized and clean. I've had my 458 Italia, GTR and most recently Wrangler modded there and they continue to impress. Thanks James, Sean, Tal, and Wes!!!

Went to ACG in San Diego yesterday just to get a dyno run as a baseline for my current mods and long story short, Tal, James, and Sean all treated me like I was a long-time customer despite this being my first time actually meeting them in person. From my arrival they made me feel at home right away and showed me around the shop. They were happy to accomodate my request to watch the dyno run as long as I followed some very reasonable precautions which I would expect any shop to have asked me to do.
After the dyno, they were more than happy as well to show me some of the interesting projects they had in the shop. Then while they were getting my car off the Mustang they noted a minor issue with one of my driving lights. It was so minor I would have expected them to just point it out and let me get it fixed when I got back to Arizona but instead Tal just took care of it there and didn't charge me for it. He and the other guys were fun to talk to as well - obviously a bunch of fellow gearheads with a real passion for cars.
Overall, a great bunch of guys and I would definitely recommend hitting them up if you're in the San Diego area.

I spent some time after receiving the mid pipe looking for a shop to install. I had visited HGMS in the past and got a quote for the instal there. I thought the price was a bit high for just a mid pipe instal. I then started researching around and found ACG Automotive also based out of San Diego. I got in contact with Tal there and the prices are very fair. I was able to get down to San Diego the next day and into their awesome shop. While i was there they through on some inventory they had (hood dampers, LED lights) for almost nothing. These guys are top notch and the quality of work they do is great. While i was there they had another GTR with full exhaust they gladly started and answered any questions i had about it. Can not wait to get back in San Diego with these guys to get a catback, downpipes, and a tune done. I plan to ACG do all the work on my car i trust them 100% and you will not be disappointed.

Dear James and staff at ACG,
I just wanted to let you know how absolutely pleased I am with the ECU upgrade you installed in my c63 AMG. The throttle response is outstanding and the overall performance absolutely breathtaking over the full range of rpm. What I find especially nice is the additional 40+ foot pounds of torque mated to the stock limited-slip differential; no burning rubber, just pure high octane linear acceleration from low gear. Estimated 0-60 mph times, by stop-watch, in the mid threes.
Great work, and thanks again,

James, Sean and Tal of ACG Automotive here in San Diego have done a phenomenal job on both my Ms. I got Akrapovic exhausts for both the M3 and M5, catted downpipes and H&R Springs for the M5 and a host of goodies from iND for both cars. I was constantly updated on tracking info for the products I ordered, the installs were flawless and exactly within the time period quoted and overall just had great customer service from these guys. For example, James and Sean literally spent almost an hour adjusting the Akrapovic tips on my M5 until it looked perfect. They pickup and drop off my cars, and make the experience as hassle free as possible.
My only complaint: they keep letting me purchase mods when I told them specifically to stop answering my calls and responding to my emails. They simply feed my mod habit!

James (Hyung*korean for elder*), Tal & Sean are outstanding at what they do and help in whatever way they can.
I had a little mishap with a Blue lawn chair on the I-5 and they set me up right.
From the first time I went there with their stand behind our work mentality I do not think ill be going anywhere else. *CBA TSB Metal CLIPS*
After I received my DBA front bumper setup, they offered to do all the data logging for my car via dyno!
Their knowledge and expertise in the GTR world is very helping for decision making.

I was gifted a pair of fancy breaks over the recent Christmas holiday and was recommended by my auto detailer to turn to ACG for installation.
The staff at the shop were friendly. Tal in particular was very patient and took the time to answer all of my annoying questions. Quick paper work with the owner and my car was taken into the garage for work.
I was especially impressed by the two gentlemen who worked on my car - Charlie and John. Both had a great attitude, were incredibly nice and polite, seemed very professional and worked diligently to get the job done.
Every now and again I'd have a question or was curious to know what exactly they were doing and they would always welcome me to stand right next to them and watch them work while explaining what's going on - probably one of the biggest pluses in this review.
They also bedded the brakes once they finished installation, something most other shops I called did not offer to do.
Almost a week now since the brakes installation, everything is operating flawlessly.
Overall, satisfying experience with ACG Automotive, thanks again to John, Charlie and Tal for the good work!
This shop exceeded my expectations. The staff is very kind and honest. I went far beyond my 2 hour quote but was only charged what they quoted me. No shop does that these days. I will be a returning customer and recommend this shop to anyone looking at modding their car.
