About Vorsprung Automobil

Vorsprung Automobil is a family-owned workshop that was established in 2022 by Eben Van der Vyver. The aim of Vorsprung Automobil is to provide expert, cost effective and convenient servicing, repairs and diagnostics to customers in Albany and surrounding areas on the North Shore of Auckland.

We offer a mobile solution for servicing, small repairs, and diagnostics. For any work that is more than a few hours we have a dedicated workshop in Torbay.

Although we specialise in Audi, Volkswagen, Seat, Skoda, and Porsche vehicles, we are equipped and our mechanics are qualified to look after other makes of vehicles too.
