Walnut Creek Autohaus Shop | Prestige Autohaus

Prestige Autohaus is the premier choice for German and Italian auto care in Walnut Creek, CA, and throughout the bay area. We are truly dedicated to our customers and have decades of knowledge working with these high-end vehicles. Our level of care and precision is unmatched in the area, and you can trust that your vehicle is in good hands when it’s with our specialists. Shop owner and operator, Torsten Brune, is from Germany and has spent the majority of his life receiving extensive training in both German and Italian vehicles.

Torsten has been an automotive technician for over 30 years. After graduating from college, Torsten began working at Germany’s largest Italian automotive dealership, which is where he became factory-trained in Fiat, Alfa Romeo, and Ferrari. With a genuine enjoyment for what he did and the thirst to learn more, he also worked at independent auto shops in his spare time, where he gained experience with other European cars such as Volkswagen and Mercedes. He quickly earned certifications as a German Master Mechanic and an Italian Master Mechanic.

Torsten eventually opened up his own independent auto repair shop in Germany, selling it in 1999 when he moved to the United States. Once in the U.S., he continued working as an automotive technician and earned both his ASE Master Technician and ASE Undercarriage Specialist certifications. In 2016, Torsten opened a new independent auto shop, CT Motorwerks. The shop flourished, and, in 2018, Torsten absorbed Prestige Autohaus, thereby expanding the business to meet the community’s need for reliable, experienced auto repair and maintenance services.

Today, Prestige Autohaus is proud to serve the community of Walnut Creek and surrounding areas with high-quality repairs and services for Audi, BMW, MINI, Porsche, VW, Alfa Romeo, Ferrari, and Maserati. Our shop is fully equipped to assist with all of your vehicle’s needs, so don’t hesitate to give our shop a call or stop by with any questions or concerns that you may have. We look forward to servicing your vehicle in the near future!

I founded Prestige Autohaus for one purpose.

Specializing in German & Italian Repair to proudly serve automobile owners in the Walnut Creek area. I grew up in love with Italian automobiles. Worked and serviced all Italian manufactures in Berlin,Germany.

Received my journeyman and later my Master of Automotive Trades in Berlin.

After leaving Germany, settled in the East Bay and became the foreman for a leading German Independent Repair Service in Berkeley.
