BARtuning has been my go-to shop of choice in Houston for over 8 years. I’m a total gearhead and the only person I trust more than myself with my GTI is Mike. He is not only a great mechanic, but a friend as well. If you have a European import, especially if you’re out of warranty, don’t take it to the dealership, take it to BARtuning!

I’ve used BARtuning for years and even though I moved out of Houston I can still call Mike and he answers my questions! Who does that? BARtuning does.
