Exclamation Beware of GERMAN AUTO SPORTS in Surrey, BC

German Auto Sports is run by shop manager Al Larson.

He is a well known con-man and thief in the local and online BMW community.

He has stolen from dozens and dozens of victims over the years amounting to several thousands of dollars for everything from carpet sets that were paid for and never sent to mechanical work that was shoddy at best and totally un-needed.

He has also taken payment for mechanical work that was never performed.

A quick google search for the name "Al Larson BMW" or his former businesses "Seams Perfect" and "Classic Image" all return many hits for people who were bilked by Al over the years. He changes the name to German Auto Sports, but the bad ways still continue to this day.

BUYER BEWARE!!! STAY AWAY FROM GERMAN AUTO SPORTS AND AL LARSON!
