Video Resources

Things move pretty fast here at Motor Werke but our European auto experts understand that your car isn’t just another car – it’s a reflection of you. We share that passion and welcome you to our video gallery where we answer questions from clients about their European cars, give a behind the scenes look, and provide relevant and useful information on the services we offer.

– Lori Van Rooijen

Customer Testimonial┃2011 Bentley Continental GT Supersport

– Darryl

Customer Testimonial┃1990 Volvo V70 XC

“I had looked at a few others that advertised as being a Volvo specialty shop but I didn’t get that same vibe from them.”

– Joel Gregg

Customer Testimonial┃1994 Land Rover Defender

“Chris was always top-notch, polite, courteous. You can tell with the time and effort he puts into his work, how much care goes into it – I respect that and I felt like coming back every time.”

– Scott Hannan

Customer Testimonial┃2006 Maserati Gransport

“Kelowna has no other dealership that would handle cars like this. In fact, I would probably think twice of owning a car like this in Kelowna because I wouldn’t want to keep going to Vancouver or Seattle to get it serviced.”

– Mark Stober

Customer Testimonial┃2003 MINI Cooper

“They could order all of the parts in, got everything in on time and were able to fix my car in two days. I got it back on the Friday before they closed for Christmas holidays. It was fabulous!”

– Erin Hemmerling

Customer Testimonial┃1999 Ferrari 355 F1 Spider

“I’ve known Chris since he opened his shop a few years ago. He was so professional and thorough with the work that he did, I’ve been using him ever since on all of the cars that I have.”

– Barrie Clift

Customer Testimonial┃1997 AC Cobra Replica

“Met Chris and the rest of his team, was really impressed with them. They stripped everything off…new rotors, calipers, hubs; the entire process was machined. Great quality brakes and the price point was good as well.”

– Scott Linttell

Performance Cars Video Series
