About Us

New German Performance (NGP) is a full-service automotive repair center and parts retailer with two locations in the Mid-Atlantic, staffed by a group of dedicated enthusiasts, providing high-quality service, maintenance, and performance solutions for our fellow enthusiasts and owners of European vehicles.

If you're wondering what sets NGP apart from the crowd, read on to find out more about us and why you should choose NGP for all your European automotive parts needs.

We've been around.

Founded in 1997, New German Performance was able to quickly elevate itself above other VW and Audi performance and repair shops through its outstanding customer service and high-quality work. At that time, the tuning industry was still in relative infancy but growing rapidly, and the quality of service at other performance shops was often found to be lacking. New German Performance was brought about to fill that need for a reputable, respectful, fair, and friendly VW/Audi shop in the Mid-Atlantic.

In April of 2007, we opened our second full-service location just south of Washington D.C. in Lorton, Virginia. We believe that our local customers are the lifeblood of NGP, and we strive to provide them with the best products and services possible. Our move into Virginia further cemented our commitment to the Mid-Atlantic region, expanding our reach to better serve the region. In 2019, our Virginia location relocated to Manassas Park. Our Manassas Park location is better in every way than our Lorton facility and was chosen specifically to provide an even higher level of service and support for our customers.

With a focus on fair pricing, quick response to inquiries, and solid customer service our ambition is to continue to be the performance leader and the go-to dealer service alternative business for owners of VW, Audi, Porsche, BMW, and other European marques in the greater Baltimore-Washington Metropolitan area.

By enthusiasts, for enthusiasts.

Unlike many of the ‘big box’ e-commerce parts warehouses, we don't just sell the parts on our website.

With our two performance and service centers, the parts we sell are the very same that are installed and validated by our team of expert technicians. 

Having hands-on experience with what we sell gives us a deeper knowledge base that isn't present at your average online parts store. We will only recommend and sell you parts that have been tested and proven on real cars in real conditions.

At NGP, all of our employees are true automotive enthusiasts.
Whether it's a track-prepped Audi, a car show-stopping VW, or an off-the-wall project car, our employees are into building and modifying the same cars that you're driving. Every automotive enthusiast wants to fully enjoy their cars, and our staff is ready to help you enjoy yours to the fullest.

Performance isn't just a word in our name. 
We sponsor, attend, and participate in multiple high-performance driver education track days and professional racing events throughout the year. During these events, we push the parts we sell to their limits so you don't have to question how a part will perform. If you have questions about how a part will perform on track or in extreme conditions, we can give you an informed, real-world answer.

We've got a dyno and we're not afraid to use it. 
We are huge fans of proven performance figures, and our in-house Dynojet 248c gives us the ability to quickly test performance hardware and validate tuning.

We attend the same great shows that you do.
Take a quick look at our shows and events page and you'll see that we attend as many shows and track events as possible. You will catch us in the show fields, vendor areas, and pit paddocks because we love interacting with other enthusiasts and sharing their passion for European vehicles.

Unrivaled customer service.

Simply put, NGP would not exist without you. It's your support over the last 25+ years that keeps us going, and it's the reason we won't stop giving you and your vehicles our best. Our customer service doesn't end once you receive your parts. If you have questions about products you've purchased or are considering for purchase, if you want to talk through a build you're planning, or if you just want to bench race, please feel free to contact us at any time.
