Andre’s passion for German and Italian cars started at a young age, in Europe. Having built, restored, and modified 45+ of his own cars over the years, along with countless others for his friends and clients, he is very well versed in the fine art of automotive customizing and repair and well regarded in the industry.
His professional resume is extensive and lasts over a twenty year span. Andre started in the business as a service writer for a well known European independent Shop in Queens, NYC. A few years later he took a position as an Sales manager for a European auto Parts distributor where he grew an immense knowledge of the parts industry. Years later he left to manage an Independent Shop in Boston when he decided to give up the cold for sunshine and relocate. Born from that decision was Total German Performance.
Much like Andre, Mike also was a born gear head. Mike's father first introduced him to automotive mechanics as a kid and he was hooked from then on. Also from New York originally, Mike started out as a factory trained BMW technician. A few years later, with an interest for more then just BMW's, Mike went out on his own. His in depth knowledge of automotive electronics, Engine Tuning and his unique ability to truly diagnose the unknown is what gives Total German Performance their edge.
Originally renting a bay from a friends shop, Mike grew his business and expanded his knowledge past his factory training resulting in his own independent repair shop in Queens which serviced all German and Italian Marques, however the time came down to start a new venture in a new location and Florida was the perfect place for it and TGP was born.
