EURO IS ALL WE DO.
Welcome to CarHavn
CarHavn has been selling, repairing, and providing collision repair for European cars since 2017. Located in New Haven, Connecticut, we have rapidly developed a reputation for top-quality cars, excellent repair and collision services, and great value.
We use our expertise in European cars such as Audi, BMW, MINI, Volkswagen, and Mercedes Benz to sell you a better product. Our unique Specialist Certified program offers you the reassurance of a reconditioned car covered by a meaningful warranty, at a great price.
European Collision Repair
CarHavn operates a fully-equipped collision center specialized in European cars. We have access to original parts and paints, employ certified technicians, and work with all insurance companies.
Most body shops are just that - body shops. When an accident occurs, damage is typically done also to mechanical and electronic components. Our body shop and expert mechanics work hand-in-hand so your car looks, and operates, like the accident never happens.
European Service Center
The European service experience has traditionally been a pendulum across two extremes: the technically competent but overpriced franchised dealer, or the unpredictable independent shop. You want to have the quality service your car demands, at a reasonable price. We built CarHavn to disrupt that old paradigm: our priority is to deliver outstanding quality and great value. We want to be your Service Center of choice.
Wanted to wait a couple of months after purchase before writing up a review. We bought a car for our son who wanted a BMW and worked with Ramiro. We had a very good experience despite an unexpected mechanical issue with the car the next day. My distressed call with picked up immediately and the response from the dealership was swift and exceeded my expectations. The car comes with an initial warranty with the option to purchase additional coverage. Ramiro was able to register the car at the dealership and I drove away with plates on my car. No dealing with the DMV. Despite a short lived - (maybe one day) rattling noise which went away, the car has been great. I would definitely recommend this dealership to someone in the market for a pre-owned car. Dealership was clean, organized and there was no pressure in sales. Ramiro was helpful and professional. Thank you CarHvn.

I have a 2008 BMW X3. This company knows about my car to a depth of knowledge much greater than that of the dealer from whom I originally purchased the car. The work appears to have been completed flawlessly. But to be fair, time will tell. In the meantime, the car is driving really well.
I’m really happy with the car! It’s a lot of fun to drive! It’s a midsize which I need for a growing family and it has plenty of power to still feel sporty when the car weighed down with people and luggage. It’s best feature actually was the price! I got a great deal! The car looks almost new inside, outside and the engine! Runs like a top. I got the price I wanted with no haggling. Super nice staff. And Carhavn has been handling the routine maintenance on my other car so they’ve already had a history of reliability, quality advice and service that I know I can trust in the future with my new car.
My wife bought 740Li from a dealer in Massachusetts and right after the 60 Day warranty period expired the Check Engine light came on. It ended up being real serious. Ramora Took fantastic care of my wife and safe her $2000.00 of Dealer price and made the repair. We are now his customers. If you have a BMW and want to continue to use original parts this is your guy. Thanks Ronald L Soellman
Fantastic Service! My GTI needed a bunch of work done including intake manifold, timing chain cover, DSG service, major carbon cleaning, oil change etc. Ramiro got it all finished in one day! He even cut the cost of the DSG service because he wanted to make sure it was much cheaper than what the dealer would charge. I’ll definitely be bringing my car to him again for all future issues and maintenance. Highly recommended!
My husband and I just bought a 2013 Mini Copper S from the team at CarHavn. They went above and beyond to make our our purchase go smoothly. Answered all our questions no matter how small and were professional at all times. I look forward to going to them for my regular services going forwards.
I was looking for a service station that specialized in Mini Coopers so I didn't have to go to the dealer every time yet still had expertise in Minis. I had a very good experience with CarHavn. I went in for a coolant leak issue and they also replace struts which I knew were going to be replace soon. I really appreciated the level of communication and they definitely care about what they are doing. I inherently have a distrust of service stations and car dealerships but felt very comfortable dealing with the staff at Carhavn. I plan to continue to use them to service my Mini.
Brought my 2012 Mini Cooper Clubman S to CarHavn for a. "Limp Mode" light that I suspected was being caused by something in the intake/turbo system; I had just put in an aftermarket intake system 3-4 weeks prior. The technicians at CarHavn swiftly diagnosed the problem to excessive play at the turbo's wastegate, causing fluctuating boost which in turn threw the car into limp mode. Ramiro got me a brand new turbo, installed it including all the necessary hoses and tidbits, as well as an oil change and reprogramming to better adjust the car to the newly increased air flow from the aftermarket intake. All of that was done in less than 3 days and I was back in the car having fun in no time at all! I thank the technicians at CarHavn very much for their impeccable service, timeliness, and Ramiro for his generosity in throwing in some parts free of charge on top of a labor discount. I recommend anybody that is into Mini Coopers, or any euro car for that matter, to reach out to CarHavn as the experience simply cannot be beat.
I bought the Mini Cooper sport as my first real purchase and let. Me. Tell. You. 1st the service is so friendly! They’re sort of a family business and you can tell they are amazing people. 2nd they were so patient with me, I always ask a million and one question and they answered every single one both over the phone and face to face. And finally they are able to provide all the devices in a timely manner. I had to send my car back for fault from a manufacturer and they were able to replace everything the same day even when it was last minute. Honestly one of the best car buying experiences.
If your looking for A car this is the place to go! I bought my car here about a month ago with amazing miles and a quick fix that was all covered by CarHavn! My car is running beautiful and in Perfect shape for a 08 Bmw!! I highly recommend checking out any other cars they have here. They gave great service and great prices on the cars that are worth the expense.
Professional and friendly from the get-go, CarHavn made the purchase of my car as easy as can be. There was a smoke smell in the car: Ramiro offered an ozone cleaning and in 24 hours the problem was solved. Then, to make me feel completely comfortable, Ramiro did let me bring the car to BMW for a full inspection and laughed at the result: passed all 38 inspection points, great car! An impeccable car was delivered to me after a full detailing. No hidden fees, no games, CarHavn want you as a client and offers red carpet service.
I purchased a Mini Countryman off carhavn. Initially there was an issue with the turbo charger and a couple of other minor detail. But they went above and beyond! Fixed everything kept me informed about the progress and dropped off and delivered a few times, so I wouldn’t have to be inconvenienced. I highly recommend buying a car from these wonderful people!!
