Welcome to German Excellence – Where Service Counts!
German Excellence specializes in providing quality automotive repair and service for your Porsche, BMW, Mercedes Benz, Mini Cooper, Audi and Volkswagen. Formerly known as Zotz Garage, German Excellence has been in business servicing Porsches and other fine German Automobiles for over 40 years. Owned and operated by Don Northrop, German Excellence’s #1 goal is to keep your vehicle performing as it was engineered to perform.
In October of 2005, Don Northrop purchased Zotz Garage in Winter Park from long-time owner Ron Zitza. Don worked for Zotz Garage for nearly 14 years and when the opportunity of becoming the owner presented itself, Don had the chance to fulfill a lifelong ambition.
At German Excellence, we focus our energy and efforts on properly diagnosing, repairing and servicing Mercedes Benz, Porsche, BMW, Volkswagen, Audi, and Mini Cooper cars. German Excellence is a certified service center for Bosch and has been servicing german cars from old to new for many years.
Don began his career working on BMWs and Mercedes in 1981, and Porsche in 1983. He has Bosch and Porsche factory training and is an ASE certified technician. He annually attends continuing education seminars so he stays “in tune” with the latest advances in the industry.
In addition to Don, German Excellence has a staff of 3 technicians with varied backgrounds in the repair and servicing of German cars. Together they make a great team. At German Excellence you can truly say you have a friend in the business, and one whom will always steer you in the right direction. At German Excellence we offer dealer level quality service, and use the latest in computer diagnostic equipment. This allows quality routine service and repair as well as performance upgrades.
Donny has a sincere love of German cars and his main goal, he says, “is to make my Mercedes, Porsche and BMW owners, friends, rather than customers”. He wants them to have a passion for their cars, rather than considering them mere transportation.
Our staff intends to continue the fine tradition of German Excellence’s customer service. Give them a call at 407-678-6789 and find out why they say… at German Excellence Service Counts!
