So, you’ve bought a European car and it’s not quite performing the way you want it. Oftentimes, European cars are built with the destination in mind and many cars bound for North America are programmed to reduce power. This is a significant difference when you compare it to their Euro counterparts. A tune rectifies this difference.

Traditionally, for many cars, it can seem like extracting more power and pushing the performance envelope can be an expensive endeavor. And often times, the results are mediocre at best. However, the good news is that later model European cars can often have both increased power and performance with a simple software tune.

How It Works
First, we discuss your tuning goals and help decide what types of modifications should be made. Based on the type and condition of the car and, of course, your budget, there are plenty of options to choose from. Every change made to your car should be considered carefully. That’s where we come in to help ensure you get the right upgrade for you and your car.

There are a number of ways that we accomplish your upgrade goals. For example, reflashing the car’s computer can allow for more air and fuel results in the increased power. Additionally, more traditional options such as intake and exhaust upgrades increase the enjoyment of your car. Suspension upgrades can also enhance your driving experience and enjoyment, as can brake upgrades.

No matter your car’s make or model, our professionals can get the job done. Whether you’re looking for Audi repair, Porsche repair, or VW repair in Nashville or surrounding cities, let German Performance Options take care of performance tuning for you.

Please note, there are rules. We will not perform any upgrades that are not street legal (unless it’s obviously a track-only car). For all upgrades, we require a brief discussion so that we can better understand your goals. This is simply to make sure that the upgrades will meet your expectations. Lastly, we will not install or consult on any sub-standard equipment. Going fast is fun — as is improved handling and shorter stopping distances — but it must be both safe and legal.

You’ve made an important investment in your European car. Now, you’re looking for some serious upgrades. At GPO Tuning, we specialize in improving your car’s performance in a safe and reliable way.

Performance Tuning

We are the shop you need when you need it! We were founded in 2003 and since then, German Performance Options has quickly become Nashville’s favorite European Car performance shop. This is largely because of our commitment to maintaining the highest standards of technical excellence while working hand in hand with our customer to give them exactly what they are looking for. Our technicians are all factory trained, ASE certified, and combined have over 100 years of experience. Here at GPO, we offer a complete suite of repair, maintenance, and performance tuning services for all European automobiles. Above all, GPO is always friendly, and always honest with our customers.

Maintenance is often overlooked with it comes to your vehicle but it is the most important thing you can do for your car. If maintenance is overlooked, it could cost you much more in the long run. All cars have a schedule that is recommended by the manufacturer. This schedule could potentially prevent many costly repairs. Most of the newer cars are advanced enough to actually warn you when there may be some type of service due for the vehicle. Audi’s are incredible vehicles that have the potential to run for many years as long as they are properly maintained. That is why we are here for you!

Our technicians here at GPO are all ASE-certified. They know the correct repair procedure to repair or maintenance your Audi. We perform all of the standard repairs, like brake pad and transmission repair. We also do more Audi-specific repairs like oil consumption issues, electrical repairs and transmission replacements on the A4, Q5, and the A6.

When you’re are on the lookout for someone to take care of all of your Audi services, maintenance and repair needs you will want to come to us first. We will keep your vehicle performing at optimum levels and to take care of your investment. You don’t want to hesitate to contact us and make an appointment to stop in. Don’t take the chance and risk the safety of your vehicle with any other technician. You won’t find Audi mechanics in the Nashville area and you won’t find anyone to match our Audi knowledge.


Auto repairing is getting more complicated than ever! Diagnostics and technology are always changing to keep up with the more complex vehicles. Finding a technician who is knowledgeable and competent could become a challenge. To your benefit there are over 300,000 professional technicians across the county who have chose to expand their knowledge and gain the ASE Certification. ASE is an independent and non-profit organization that is made to improve the quality of vehicle repair and service by certifying their professionals. Getting ASE certified isn’t just a written test and you’re done. The exams in training stress the knowledge of different job related skills. Once they pass the test, which may take a couple of tries, becoming ASE certified doesn’t happen automatically. To get certified the technician needs to pass the test and prove that they had two years of relevant work experience. After that the technician will become ASE certified. Continuing ed is also required every 5 years to keep the certification.

The exams stress knowledge of job-related skills. The tests are no cinch to pass; in fact, usually only two out of every three test takers pass on their first attempt. After passing at least one exam and providing proof of two years of relevant work experience, the test-taker becomes ASE certified. To remain certified, ASE-certified professionals must be retested every five years.
