To us perfection is just a starting point

How is Hi-Line Different?

Founded in 2001 Hi-Line Automotive in Downers Grove has always focused on the service, repair and restoration of high end and high performance European vehicles. Specializing in these Marques allows us to be intimately familiar with their unique demands. Our knowledge, expertise, and familiarity with your vehicle can allow us to perform services to a higher quality than less than qualified repair facilities.

We even perform repairs to a higher than dealer level of quality. Dealerships are often required to only use manufacturer specified parts, while these parts can be of very high quality often there are components made by aftermarket suppliers that can enhance and improve on OE components. We have the knowledge to advise you when using a manufacturer or aftermarket part would be most appropriate.

Hi-Line-Automotive-Engine-Repair-ServiceDealerships and other repair facilities often are not experienced to work on vehicles past a certain age. Often they lack the experience or tools to perform the delicate repair and restoration work to a high level. Hi-Line has enormous experience working on your model European classic.

Now with over 15 years of serving the Chicagoland area our stellar reputation is widely known. We can provide to you everything from basic maintenance A and B services up to engine or transmission replacements.


  • These guys really took care of us, great service. A breath of fresh air from the BMW dealer…Chico R.
  • This is an auto repair shop that I trust completely. The staff know what they are doing. I interview repair shops & check them out before I will trust my vintage car to their care. HiLine Automotive has never disappointed meSandra S.
  • We’ve worked with Hi-Line for both our vintage BMW and Mercedes cars – great diagnostic and technical services!

    Real problem solvers!

    We’ll continue to work with Hi-Line in the future.Steve A.
