I drive an hour to the shop each way with many other European tuning shops closer by. Why? Better pricing on labor, and total confidence in the techs. They are absolute professionals and car guys in the truest sense. Not only is the front office friendly, but they treat you with respect and don't talk down to you or take advantage of people like some other shops I've been to or heard about. I recommend this shop and trust them implicitly to do what's right.


Don't bother taking your German car to the dealership, bring it here. I have a 2014 Audi Q7 TDI, I have 99,000 miles on it and love the car. I've had it to Audi in Monmouth County on three occasions for the diesel smell leaking into the cabin, really bad. All three times they told me there was nothing wrong with the car. I know my car and there was something wrong. Tyler at Island Sport Works found a ridiculous amount of diesel soot buildup in one of the intake valves and a hairline crack in one of the pipes near the turbo. A good cleaning and welding the crack has resulted in a much quicker car and NO MORE DIESEL SMELL!!!!! I'm really thrilled about this place, they kept me informed and continued to search and solve the problem Audi Service was either too inept or lazy to find. Thank You!!!

ISW did a great job installing my 034 Sway Bar and End Links on my S6. Tyler and his team are very friendly. They all had time to talk to you and ask questions. Their prices are very competitive and I plan on coming back.

Kenneth C

These guys are top notch. Tyler, the owner is an extremely knowledgeable guy. They have worked on multiple cars for me and have always taken care of me. Their pricing is fair and workmanship is flawless. Excellent dealer alternative. Thank you!

Patrick Sobieski

I was looking to get some significant service done on my 2014 CC. I had a friend that recommended to go see Tyler and the gang at Island Sport Works so I gave them a shot. The car was extremely rough at idle due to some carbon buildup and needed a suspension refresh as well. I dropped the car off Thursday night and by Friday close the car was complete. The shop is extremely knowledgeable and reasonable in pricing. Give them a call you won't regret it!

Tyler and everyone at Island Sport Works really make a great team. They always take care of my cars and make sure I know what's going on with them. I've worked with a lot of shops in NJ, and they are simply the best when it comes to handling my VW's. They're knowledgeable and never try to push me into anything I don't want or need. Can't say enough good things!


Great guys especially Tyler and Sway. They're always willing to fit me in on a Saturday to get work done on my vehicle and let's me know up front of issues or things to be concerned with if they notice it. Top notch service and professionalism and willing to go the extra mile to make sure I'm pleased with my vehicle after they're done working on it.

Thomas Li

Sway, Tyler, and all the other guys over at Island Sport Works are the best. I wouldn't trust anyone else to work on my cars. From regular maintenance to custom fabrication, they do it all. They did work on my E55 AMG Mercedes. And they have also done work on my most recent car which is a Jaguar XFR. Although they specialize in German cars they did a great job with my Jaguar (Installed a tune and pulley, custom down pipes, suspension, etc...). It's hard to find a performance shop that will work on Jags as the aftermarket and support is almost nonexistent, but Island Sport Works took great care of me. The guys have always gone above and beyond to ensure I was happy.

Lance Tracey

Island Sport Works is always on time and provides excellent customer service in all the work that they do. Tyler is extremely knowledgeable and never tries to push anything on you. Highly recommend.

Bryan Ross

Very knowledgeable and thorough! They explained everything in great detail and were super professional throughout the whole process. Everyone was so nice and patient through all of my questions. Felt confident my car was in good hands! I would highly recommend and will definitely use them for future work!

Frequently Asked Questions

Will taking my vehicle to Island Sport Works void or affect my manufacturer or third-party warranty?
Absolutely not. In order to maintain your warranty, you must perform scheduled maintenance on your vehicle. However it is against the law for any dealership to deny warranty service due to the vehicle being serviced at an Independent Service Center.
You will receive a written receipt of services rendered upon completion of work, and we always have your service history on file in case you misplace or lose your copy.
Do you offer a warranty?
Absolutely! Our work is backed by a 12-Month, unlimited mileage warranty. However, this warranty does not apply if the customer insists on using used parts for repairs.
Do you use OEM parts?
Yes, unless the customer specifically requests the use of OE parts. In addition, in some scenarios, OEM parts are deemed inferior due to inherent design flaws. In those situations, we will consult you on what we believe is the best option for you and your vehicle.

Yes. We have a key-drop box for after-hours drop-off. Please be sure to fill out our night-drop service request form!
