I’ve been going to XLR8 for years and the service has always been great. They are an honest group of bright, thoughtful auto enthusiasts. Work is high quality and the attention to detail is just as good as the personal service they offer to their customers. I would not go anywhere else if I wanted high quality performance work done to my cars.

XLR8 got my tires in within hours and I was able get them install the next day. Everyone there was super helpful and I want to say thank you to Bobby in particular who installed them on my car. He took great care and nailed the tricky alignment. It took a little longer than expected but once he was done it was spot on! Rides like a dream now. So glad I didn’t skimp out and went to one of those local chain tire shop.

Had an amazing experience with the guys at Excelerate Performance before, during and after my service! I had called prior in regards to an AWE exhaust, and both Greg and Josh were a huge help with honest suggestions, feedback and tips all within my best interest. Such a beautiful facility, professional appearance, knowledgeable and friendly staff, and amazing work!!

Excelerate is awesome for all kinds of work on German cars. I had work done on my Audi and will definitely be back for more. Their mechanics go the extra mile and seem more qualified than most dealership services. I highly recommend them!

Had them do the APR pulley kit and tune on my 2011 S4.  Justin Rogers was a great help, he was very helpful throughout the entire process.  Very happy with the service they provided.  I would highly recommend this establishment for any service or performance related upgrades.

Very honest and helpful, before I brought my here to get serviced or any work done. It was always giving problems, but after bringing my car to Excelerate it’s been driving amazing and I know they did it the right way. Whenever I have question or need a opinion about something, Excelerate is quick with response.

Spoke to the service manager about a problem I’m having with my 2010 Volkswagen Passat. The gentleman I spoke to was extremely knowledgable and helpful with my problem. I’ve spoken to many repair shops about it and nobody describe it as well as these guys. I know have a better idea of where to go from here just from speaking with him for about 5 minutes. Great customer service. Sad I’m across the country or I would 100% bring my vw here!

Amazing service and people. Love everything that I have done such as oil changes and modifications to my Golf R MK7.

The service was excellent. I told them what time I was going to come in to get a tune for my car and when I arrived, there was no waiting. My car runs excellent and will be a returning customer. Everyone that works there seems to be very knowledgeable about all types of cars.

Nice shop and knowledgeable staff. Friendly and clean. My APR stage 1 for my 09 A4 2.0T works great. They had a special which included a free tee shirt…no one gives stuff away nowadays so the feeling of my business being appreciated was great. I will definitely be back again soon. Thanks guys!!

I’ve been taking my 01 TT 225 to Excelerate Performance for well over a year now. These guys do great work, service is outstanding and they take pride in what they do! (Rare these days.). Their new facility is outstanding and boasts a comfortable waiting area…
