Bluewater Performance is not your dealership alternative. We are an independent Denver based shop, supporting Audi, BMW, and Volkswagen vehicle owners. Offering both maintenance and repair, as well as high performance tuning, there isn’t a need you have that we can’t handle.
Unlike the dealer, you won’t find predatory service advisors, you won’t find outrageous pricing, and you might not love our coffee. Our customers love our small, laid back speed shop filled with passionate enthusiast employees, who love what they do. Our customers keep coming back for the same day service, reasonable pricing, and the care that comes from every aspect of what we do.
Founded in 2009, owner Gabe Adams left corporate America to do what he loves, and to do it his way. He founded Bluewater Performance in the heart of Denver, Colorado to pursue his love of European vehicles, and competitive performance. Along the way we have earned a following of loyal clients who are attracted by the enthusiasm and quality that come from the type of shop that continues to build the type of vehicles that are featured and compete in the performance magazines that we all grew up drooling over.
Today, Bluewater Performance enjoys a hard fought reputation that is unlike any other European automotive shop. Arriving at the shop, and you will notice that the parking lot is an exhibition of European vehicle offerings. Brand new Audis, VW’s and BMW’s still adorned with temp tags await their first upgrade; performance software. A handful of AWD turbocharged racecars, some embellished with racecar livery, others are masquerading as common sedans. While these exceptional vehicles will first capture your attention, the majority of the cars in the parking lot are far less exotic. Scheduled maintenance and repairs are the cornerstone of any automotive service shop, and Bluewater is no exception here.
Enter the shop and you can sense the passion that defines Bluewater. Our dyno is a showpiece for gear heads, as is our custom fabrication space. Large metallic prints adorn the walls of the waiting room. These pay homage to award winning street-cars built for clients that have caught the eyes of European Car and EuroTuner Magazine editors. While other printed displays capture years of competitive participation in the EuroTuner grand prix. We are passionate about quality, safety, performance, and ex*****on. These aren’t vacant concepts, and we don’t need a dealership certification to inform our talent. Instead our history of featured builds and racecar pedigree is where we not only find our validation, but also serves as our well of inspiration for current and future projects.
Our owner Gabe Adams employs a youthful and passionate staff. Every team member lives, breathes European performance. Supporting the local enthusiast and motorsport communities is not something Gabe asks of us, it’s our reason for being. Bluewater was created to sincerely support European vehicle owners and enthusiasts, not pick their pockets. There is no charge to install performance software, diagnostic rates are priced perhaps lower than they should be, and OEM parts are proudly sold below MSRP. We continue to live by our defined values, and support the local community of owners and enthusiasts in a way that is fun, laid back, and non-predatory. If you love your car, and loathe high-priced, high-pressure shops, you will love Bluewater Performance.
