  • Sean Zarrinkooh

    Owner & Master Technician

    Sean has around 30 years of experience in BMW/Mercedes repair and service and holds several ASE certifications. He has served on the board of many local automotive services councils and on the Palm Springs High School and College of the Desert Advisory Committees. He founded International Motors 26 years ago with the purpose of providing service for BMW and Mercedes drivers that surpasses the dealer's service.


  • Sean at International Motors has been maintaining my classic Mercedes for years. The personal service is excellent. I wouldn't trust my cars to anyone else.

  • When you have an older classic car it's easy for a mechanic to tell you that you need "everything." Especially if they have the car apart working on something. Sean is incredibly honest. And often says you don't need "this" or it can wait. And the job they do is probably better than a dealer as the dealer mechanics are trained to deal with the new cars, equipment and tools. My car is exotic and over 20 years old. Sean and his crew have the tools, knowledge and desire to make it as good as it can be without finding things to make me concerned about.

  • I've been a customer of International Motors for a few years and I think that they are really great. Sean is wonderful and runs a good shop there. They are honest, hard-working and professional. I highly recommend them.

  • International Motors has always handled everything I've brought to them expertly and expeditiously. I've been using them for about seven years, and find them to be incredibly knowledgeable and trustworthy.

  • When other repair centers can't resolve or fix your Mercedes Benz mechanical issues, pay International Motors a visit. You will not regret it. 

I live 160 miles away from this shop. But, if my MB has major issue, I will take it there.

  • I've been using International Motors for about seven to eight years now. I've had nothing but good experiences there. I have been very satisfied with the service provided there. I especially like dealing with Sean directly and growing and developing a solid relationship with him over the years. This is a nice business, with really good technicians.

  • International Motors was recommended by a family member of mine. We've used them for about 2 years now and they do good work. They have done everything from oil changes and power steering to fixing window problems. They have worked on my mother's car as well as my sister's car -- both are Mercedes. 

It's good to keep the communication open in terms of finding out what's wrong with the car when they check it. They do good work and I wouldn't hesitate to take the car back to them in the future.

    Called to set up an appointment. They start to ask all kind of very strange question that has nothing to do the subject of my call. Dropped my attempt to set up an appointment and hang up the phone. Crazy!
