Our History - How We Started

Al Hafner Tuning was originally established in 1977 in Los Angeles, California over 30 years ago. In 1989 the parts & service business was moved to Tyler, Texas in order for the parts division to serve its U.S. customers from a better geographic location. In 2002 we started servicing the new MINI Cooper and Cooper "S". With family origins in Germany our organization has strong ties in the German and European automotive business community. Our ability to speak fluent German has been a big advantage in establishing and maintaining these relationships.

Both Al Hafner Tuning and BMP design were located near Beverly Hill California, and we earned the business of numerous hollywood celebrities during that time. Some very famous superstars while others were just starting out in the industry. I would guess that some working in production had since then moved up the ladder to directing or producing. On several occasions I would have aspiring actors practicing there lines or reading scripts in my waiting room, while we were doing an oil service on there BMW, Porsche, or Mercedes Benz.

What impressed us the most was getting to knowing them on a personal level, they were for the most part just regular people. We try to get to know each customer that comes in for service at AHT in the same way. We have changed over the years and so have the cars we work on, our customers still deserve a friendly, honest, and professional experience when they have service performed on their car. We are comitted to excellence of service and care at AHT.
