Grant at Southside Autowerks does top-notch work at a reasonable price! Based on numerous recommendations from the Four Rings ATL Facebook group, I made an appointment with Southside Autowerks to get H&R Sport lowering springs installed on my 2013 Audi RS5. When I arrived, Grant came out and welcomed me, immediately started examining my car to see if there would be any rubbing issues (which I voiced as a concern when making the appointment), and walked me through what he was seeing. Both he and the receptionist were very friendly and the waiting room was nice and air-conditioned with a TV and free drinks. The job took about 3 hours (which is what they told me it would take) and the end... result is exactly what I wanted. You can tell that Grant is a first-class mechanic with great attention to detail. I highly recommend Southside Autowerks for any Audi RS owners looking to get some suspension work done.read more

Can’t say enough about the guys here. They were diligent and were able to fix CEL issue on my Audi (misfires). They are flexible, professional, and friendly. Highly recommended.
13:25 10 Jun 22
These guys are awesome, they tuned my Audi RS7 and it runs unbelievable, I wouldn’t take my car anywhere else..
21:03 28 May 22
Always excellent service!
15:35 19 May 22
Outstanding since day 1. Knowledgeable, Reliable, Honest... Everything you should expect from the best in the business. I will not take my Audi/VW anywhere else!
23:03 15 Apr 22
I had a tune installed on my car. I was in and out in 30 minutes. The staff was super knowledgeable and friendly. I'll definitely go back if I need anything done to my VW.

Found them on the internet after visiting 2 VW dealers in the past 4 months —- now I will never need to go back to VW again!🥳. Certainly did an efficient job for me. I was told they could diagnose my 2014 Tiguan issue in 30 minutes. I made the appt and it took them 25! Diagnosed, fixed, done, with 5 minutes to spare. I have found my “go to” VW urgent care!
22:20 07 Jan 22
Stop looking for a VW/Audi shop. This is the one. Grant is everything most mechanics are not. Honesty and transparency are the 2 big ones for me. Never a concern of being taken advantage of. Grant will tell you how it is and not try to get an extra dollar. The guy is a wizard when it comes to these cars, extremely knowledgeable. Professionalism, integrity, honesty and fair are just a few attributes on what makes Southside Autowerks the go-to.
12:57 07 Jan 22
I have had several jobs done by Grant at Southside Autowerks. He is the most knowledgeable VW tech in the Atlanta area and does excellent work. He has always been on time and professional. I highly recommend Southside if you need work on your VW/Audi.

EXTREMELY HELPFUL IN EVERY WAY!Very professional and polite has my business and would recommend everybody with Audi/VW to use Grant as you’re mechanic!
21:11 07 Dec 21
I had a great time at my appointment! Grant is an awesome mechanic. I purchased my Audi A5 3 years ago and have been getting it serviced at a Volkswagen dealership in Columbus. I started having check engine light problems and I took to back to Volkswagen. I watched them look at my car for 10 mins and then drop it and I waited another hour afterwards. Only for the mechanic to tell the service advisor that I had a bad turbo. The estimated price was about $2000, me losing all hope I was about to try to trade in my car for a new one and someone referred Grant to me. So, I decided to get a second opinion. Grant was on it right away he diagnosed the problem and set me up an appointment to fix... it. I had an intake leak and my car was consuming a lot of oil. He not only realized that I had the wrong pcv vavle for my car which was manufactured in china but he also found that I had a hose that was not properly secured! That the mechanic from Volkswagen completely missed, now I am also getting a refund back from Volkswagen and Grant also gave me a fantastic price. I couldn’t be more thankful especially with Christmas coming soon. I would definitely recommend anyone with an Audi/Volkswagen to check out Grant’s shop!read more
22:52 12 Nov 21
I was there for a battery replacement. Grant took amazing care and was quick to put it in place. Pricing was amazing compared to competition. Would definitely recommend. Worth the drive from midtown atlanta.
22:12 26 Oct 21
Grant is a GODSEND! Not only is he awesome at diagnosing every issue our cars have run into and saved us thousands, he also is so flexible and personable. What a great shop! I will ALWAYS drive to Grant for any future needs I have for my Audis
14:08 17 Sep 21
Grant has been so helpful with our Volkswagen Beetle. He is knowledgeable and always explains what needs to be done and at the best value! I feel confident in knowing that he is keeping my new driver safe in her “dream car”! Thanks for the great customer service ! 😉
19:31 08 Sep 21
Grant is top notch again. Had him install an aftermarket heat exchanger on my 2017 Audi A6. Best quality work out there, he even takes the time to explain how the system works, what to look for if future issues arise. Attention to detail is off the charts and his prices are unbeatable. If you are looking for an honest mechanic that knows VW/Audi look no further. Will always take my car to him for tune-ups/upgrades/repairs. You won't be disappointed!!!!!!
11:51 19 Aug 21
Awesome service advice and cost
21:06 10 Aug 21
Very nice people, I will take my car there again. He really knows Audis
21:14 06 Aug 21
Awesome repair shop
22:15 25 Jul 21
Staff Very attentive, no attitude, great you with a smile
20:36 22 Jul 21
I drive the ~40 miles down to Southside Autowerks despite having 4 well-respected Euro shops within a 15 min drive of my house. That's because Grant might be the best VW/Audi mechanic on the East Coast, and certainly in the Atlanta metro. He's always professional, efficient and detail-oriented. I watched him double check every torque spec for the work he was doing on my car. It's that level of detail that lets me know my car is in good hands. Oh, and his prices are very reasonable. He really is that unicorn of a mechanic, being affordable, honest and highly skilled in his work.
13:46 16 Jul 21
Highly recommended, I had to replace the clutch in my GTI after an APR tune and Grant excitedly poured his experience on me from the first phone call, helping me pick out the right replacement and getting it ordered for me. Not only does he know the ins and outs of VW/Audis but he is happy to share his knowledge, show you his work every step of the way and is reasonably priced. I have to drive an hour to get to his shop and will do it again in a heartbeat.
17:32 08 Jul 21
Grant was a true professional! Took my car to him for an oil change an evaluation of my newly acquired GTI. He answered all my questions and and gave insight as to when to have certain maintenances performed. I could not endorse him enough!!
22:53 30 Jun 21
If you own a Volkswagen or Audi, do yourself a favor and take this number down. Grant at Southside Autowerks is the best. Such a nice guy, took time to explain everything to us, and quickly remedied something others probably would have have charged us an arm and a leg for ❤️ #vwlife

17:05 31 May 21
BEST SERVICE EVER. If you own a VW, this is the only place to go! The owner is nice, honest, and knowledgeable. We live 2 hours away, and the drive was totally worth it!!ANDHis business logo is badassANDThe business merch is badass too.—-(I got one of everything, no shame)High quality in all aspects.
17:52 28 May 21
23:06 27 May 21
Grant was awesome and really knows his stuff. He also fixed a problem I had and only charged me for parts. I'm setting about 5 or 6 inches off the ground now. He hooked me up with some eibach lowering springs.
17:57 24 May 21
16:46 24 May 21
Southside is amazing! They really go the extra mile for their customers. They give you an accurate quote prior to service, take extra time to explain things to you, and are extremely friendly. I’ve taken my Volkswagen over there a couple of times now and every time it is the same excellent service! Highly recommend!
20:34 14 Apr 21
Great Service, Grant is the best tech by far around. The only one’s I trust with my VW.

Wow, is all I can say. Grant and his team are nothing short of AMAZING. My husband is away at basic military training, and needless to say it can be stressful at times. Having to pick up all of the responsibilities that he left off, all I can say is is that Grant and his team literally lifted that burden off of my shoulders and was so professional and nice they helped me with every issue I came across and made it that much more smooth for me to handle what I needed to handle. I can't even say customer service, HOSPITALITY is the word that comes to mind, these people are amazing and have beautiful spirits and it shows in their work ethic and their hospitality. I can honestly say I have... never received service like this at a mechanic shop lol, I would even go so far as to say they are the best in the city or the state for what they do. Thank you! Southside auto works for your patience and understanding. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!❤read more

Southside Autowerks has gone above, and beyond my expectations! Thank you Grant for your professionalism, knowledge, and trust.
00:00 15 Dec 20
Grant is very likeable and shoots you straight. I was happy to find a place in Newnan that works on VW/Audi and he definitely knows his stuff. We'll be using him for all our VW maintenance!
11:06 09 Dec 20
Grant does the best work for the best price. I find him on a whim, and since, I will only have him do work on my Audi. His professionalism is top notch, and he has gone above and beyond every single time.

They accurately diagnosed and repaired my car at a competitive price. I consider myself an avid do-it-yourselfer; that might have just changed after my outstanding experience at Southside Autowerks!
05:25 20 Nov 20
Best prices in town, owner is very knowledgeable. He is very detailed and he explained the whole process from beginning to end. My car had the famous cold start issue that happens to the vw 2.0 turbo, because of the carbon build up. He let me take pictures of the issue of my car. The dealer wanted $900 to fix the car. He actually Walnut blasted the carbon off my valves The dealer would only use a chemical which would not give the same result. No more check engine light (because of misfires). He even topped off my fluids as in antifreeze and windshield wiper fluid. It's the small things that make a big difference in customer service. I highly recommend this shop. I plan on using this... shop for all my needs for my 2013 Jetta GLI.read more

Ryan is just a super fine guy. Will help u any way he can. An a hell of a mechanic. Can fix any problem ur bike has.
21:30 12 Nov 20
Grant is hands down the best mechanic there is for Audi/VW. I came here last week for a post-purchase inspection on a new used car and he took his time looking at every component on the car. I drive an hour just to see him.He also answered questions regarding upcoming maintenance that he recommends. He's VERY detailed and knowledgeable when explaining everything and how it works. A lot of mechanics out there will tell you something needs to be replaced when it doesn't but Grant is a down to earth type of guy who genuinely wants to help you get what you need done on your vehicle. Highly recommend.
15:34 09 Nov 20
Easily the best place to take your VW, AUDI, or Porsche in the Metro Atlanta area! Super helpful, very timely, always goes the extra mile to make sure it's done 100% correct, not just good enough. He is the only person I trust to work on my VW. You will not regret having him work on your VW, AUDI, or Porsche! Pictures are of the head in my shop, his shop is immaculate!
22:07 25 Oct 20
I have been communicating with Grant over the past few weeks about bring my car in for a few upgrades, he has been so great in answering my questions and being responsive and polite. I haven’t taken my car into the shop yet for the work but he has already earned my business! I can tell that my vehicle will be in the best hands and I’m so glad to have found Southside Autowerks!! Grant did an amazing job on my Audi everything is perfect with it! Best part is after all the work was done you can’t even tell it was touched! Not a single fingerprint on the entire car. Took my car to the track today and it ran perfect!
21:38 25 Oct 20
Very professional and timely with projects
00:20 17 Oct 20
My experience was good. I have been searching for a new permanent mechanic and had my car towed. My car was diagnosed and repaired in an extremely timely fashion at a very fair price. The fact performance work is offered is also a plus since the garage I had been using does OEM repairs only. I plan on returning soon, as well as often and making my car not only reliable transportation, but fun at the same time. I very well may have just found a new permanent wrench man...

I own a Volkswagen and Audi and Grant always give me prompt, on time service. I would recommend Southside Auto weeks, for all your VW and Audi Auto needs. Honesty, professional, quality and excellent price.

He’s the only one I’ll let touch my A7
16:03 28 Aug 20

Literally the best repair shop I have ever been too. No corners are cut, everything is explained, and it is easy to tell that grant truly cares about what he does. I will never go anywhere else.
17:20 06 Aug 20
Grant is a class act. Very knowledgeable, efficient and most importantly fair. Highly recommend for any of your VW/Audi needs

13:29 10 Jun 20
I took a chance and purchased a 2008 Audi R8 with a transmission issue. The car had sat for almost a year because the owner was told by the Audi store that it had a 16K transmission issue. I reached out to an old friend who works at APR and he directed me to Grant. Grant was able to give me the confidence I needed to buy the R8. As it turns out, I got the R8 back on the road for just over 3K. I have put around 1,500k on the car since Grant repaired it and it runs great.If I owned an auto shop I would operate my business as Grant operates Southside Autowerks.
20:14 02 Jun 20
Very friendly clean and honest establishment
14:51 06 May 20
Grant does good work!
20:17 30 Apr 20
Grant is a great mechanic he’s honest and knows his stuff! I took my car there for a few things. One of them being I thought I had a bad wheel bearing and he quickly found out that was not the problem. He’s very trustworthy! Your car will be in great hands!
20:19 22 Apr 20
Owner is very knowledgeable and responsive.
02:44 15 Mar 20
Grant knows his stuff. Will not trust anyone else with my new Atlas. Takes the extra minute to do it right.Impressed by Grant's knowledge and organization. Everything is tidy and orderly. The best part, he uses his torque wrench and knows off the top of his head the torque spec for everything including drain plug and oil filter. Also uses only approved products not just what comes out of the tank. On my 19 Atlas only the VW oil is authorized, so that's what he uses.
16:27 10 Feb 20
When it comes to VW/Audi, you won't find a better mechanic. Grant can diagnose and repair anything you bring him, and will do so at a fair price. He doesn't just throw parts at a problem, he takes the time to diagnose the problem and get it right.
22:41 04 Feb 20
Grant is extremely knowledgeable in the field of VW or Audi repair. Must visit!

Absolutely the best experience I have ever had getting service on anything! I have referred Grant to every person I know whom owns a VW. Came highly recommended and he did not disappoint. Too bad if you don't own a VW because you are missing out.
23:22 02 Nov 19
Amazing customer service, dependable, fair prices. Couldnt ask for a better experience.
I highly recommend Grant and Southside Autowerks. After one visit I will undoubtedly be a repeat customer... Grant is extremely knowledgeable and I learned more about this A3 in one hour than I probably ever knew... It’s worth the drive if you’re not local. This is one of those shops that leaves a lasting impression. Check it out!!
What can I say to describe my experience with Grant at Southside Autoworks. Honesty Integrity Patients Knowledgeable Caring From the beginning to the end Grant went out of his way in a difficult situation to make sure I was satisfied. Grant made himself available and answered or returned phone calls in a timely manner. He worked hard to make sure I was back in the road and things were done right. Clean shop and an upbeat personality. Nobody likes to hear there car is broken but at least you can be confident in the person who is fixing it. Thanks Grant for your hard work.
Knowledge, knowhow, better than dealership pricing, Grant is a stand up dude who will do anything for the customer and put them first. He is meticulous and does not skip over any details. He is happy to answer any question large or small without a I’m better than you mentality. I will NEVER need a dealer again. Thanks!!
15:31 11 Aug 19
I have known Grant for many years and sent many referrals. When it comes to VW and Audi repairs he is the best. Extremely knowledgeable and more than fair. He doesn't try to sell you something you do not need and is spot-on in diagnosing your car's problems. Visit Southside Autowerks once and you won't have to go anywhere else.
00:58 02 Aug 19
Grant is awesome, very knowledgeable about Volkswagen and Audi great place to do business with. Thanks!
Fantastic place to go for anything VW related. Grant is an endless source of knowledge and his work quality is second to none.
06:04 10 Jul 19
My bug was ailing for months and nobody knew how to fix it because it was Stage 3 APR. My car was one of the first in his new shop. I dropped it off before leaving on a trip. Before I got past Memphis, I got a call that the car was fixed, and very reasonably too.Top notch in every way and APR experts too.Thanks GrantRich
Absolutely great, reliable service and reasonably priced. Only place I take my Q5
14:20 28 Jun 19
13:36 28 Jun 19
Two of the best qualities I can use to describe Grant at Southside Autowerks are TRUSTWORTHY and KNOWLEDGEABLE. If it’s broke, he can fix it. If it’s not, he won’t. He has worked on my ‘09 A4 and has done several pre-purchase inspections on other cars prior to me buying it. His saying “Yes, it looks nice but I would stay away from it for these reasons...” was enough for me. I can’t recommend him any higher!
14:35 27 Jun 19
Grant was able to quickly diagnose an issue with my 2012 GLI. While fixing my issue he also discovered past "shoddy" work done under warranty by a local VW dealership. Grant was able to repair my car, at a very reasonable price, and have it running like a champ in only one day. Highly recommend Southside Autowerks for any VW/Audi mechanical or performance needs
23:27 24 Jun 19
Finally a place on the southside side of Atlanta that will take care of your car and give you the customer service you deserve. A phenomenal place to take you VW or Audi for repair. Extremely knowledgeable of the repairs needed to get my car back on the road and running as it should. Excellent customer service!!
Always honest, reliable, and trustworthy. Quality work, never cuts corners, and won't sell you things you don't need. Grant definitely knows his stuff and you can count in him for all of your VW and Audi needs!
