BMW Specialistin Henley On Thames
Hofmanns is an independent specialist offering servicing and repairs for BMW cars. We are a family run business, founded in 1949 by Fred Hofmann right here in Henley on Thames and serving customers throughout Oxfordshire and Berkshire. Our workshop is walking distance to the train station or town centre, and we have easy road links to both the M4 and M40 motorways.
Our team has considerable experience with BMW cars. In the workshop our Master Technician Mark Norton has 20 year’s experience including diagnostics and systems qualifications for both passenger vehicles and vans. If you want the best for your BMW, you are in safe hands!
To save your pocket our rates are less than the main dealer and we offer fixed menu pricing for the current range of BMW cars. If you have a prized classic BMW model our experienced technicians have the knowledge with general maintenance through to complete rebuilds. We use BMW equipment and diagnostics, along with genuine BMW parts that are covered by a 2-year warranty. BMW specific oils are fitted, and we are able to officially record everything in your digital service book all without effecting your manufactures warranty.
We offer all the usual services you might expect from a well-equipped garage from tyres, brakes & clutch, crash repairs and diagnostics through to engine and chassis rebuilds for classic cars. We are unashamedly ‘old-school’ in that our technicians are experts and craftsman, able to conduct complex repairs and even fabricate entire new parts.
If you are short on time, we have a collection and delivery service, or you can take advantage or our fleet of modern courtesy cars. If it’s a simple job, we can offer while you wait appointments with refreshments and we will carry out a complimentary wash and vacuum after work is complete.
