About Us

Flamingo Automotive first opened it’s bay doors in 1989.  We have been proudly serving Austin for 25 years now! We specialize, and are exclusive to, Japanese and German vehicles. We are able to provide a wide range of services, from factory scheduled maintenance to full-service diagnostic and repair. Our work rivals dealership quality at a much more reasonable hourly rate.

We are a Licensed State Inspection facility, and possess the knowledge and experience to perform “check engine” diagnostics and repair to bring vehicles into inspection compliance.

Our specialty services include performance modifications, track day prep, as well as restoration work.
