I can’t say enough wonderful things about my experience with Six Star Motorsports. I especially appreciated the excellent communication throughout the whole build of my ’05 STI. These guys are very knowledgeable, they know their stuff. All of the staff I came in contact with were friendly, very professional, and trustworthy. They explained every step of the build, gave me plenty of options throughout the build and weren’t just trying to get me to spend money on parts I didn’t need. My main point of contact was Chris and I have zero complaints, everything from start to finish exceeded my expectations; can’t say enough great things about him! After I got the car home, I had a fuel leak in my surge tank (which turned out to be a manufacturer defect) – the owner Sammy and one of the head techs Choch personally drove to my home to replace the surge tank and fix the issue, instead of me trailering the car back to the shop. This kind of service and dedication to their customers and their work is hard to find these days. They have gained a lifetime customer in me and I will send any Subaru their way – they’re the best in the Midwest!

My 2014 hatch STI suffered the ill fated rod knock, but Six Star along with Boosted Performance brought it back to life!! What they’ve done is nothing short of amazing. Chris and the Six Star team really know what they’re doing and they keep you in the loop every step of they way. Not one detail was left out and whatever happened to the car, I was always informed with detailed pictures, videos, and text updates. I’ve been taking my car there for most of the eight years I’ve owned it. I can’t say that any repair shop has made me feel as comfortable and at ease during the months of work that went into putting in a new block plus a few extra goodies. My car feels and sounds better than ever and I can’t thank these guys enough for putting a smile back on my face. Whatever your Subaru needs may be, look no further than Six Star Motorsports to make things right again.

One of the best shops, hands down. I was extremely happy with their services. Their customer service is 10/10. I received an estimate within minutes. I was updated throughout the entire process. Their work is phenomenal. I would receive photos of the work that was being done on my Subaru - step by step. I have been using Six star for couple of years now and its always top notch work. From an alignment to a full build, no job is too big for them. Does not matter if your Subaru is stock or modified, they got you covered. Reasonable prices, honest and friendly staff. Dont hesistate, contact Six Star Motorsports today !
19:31 28 Oct 22
Fixed the problem and now my car runs better than ever!
15:41 30 May 22
Seriously one of the best subaru shops in the country. Had my car done by them a year to go today and besides a couple small issues unreleased to the work they’ve done the car had been amazing. Mark and the whole team at six star are a treat to work with and beyond just being a great shop are a great addition to the Subaru community. Wish I could work with them more, (moved out of the area) as they have the customers back 💯. I can’t rave enough about them to be honest. There were some delays but at the end of the day they made it right and were forthcoming with information as much as possible.
16:09 05 May 22
Great communication. Thoroughly explained everything along the way.
22:46 03 Mar 22
Bought a brand new 21 STI and have been doing all the performance modifications with them since I got the car. Mark and Romar always very thorough with explanation, and always friendly as well. All work including oil changes I’ve done here and will continue to do so. Highly highly recommend this stellar place.
18:40 11 Feb 22
Needed a couple parts to wrap up a 5 speed swap and they had everything I needed
18:39 19 Jan 22
Being from Michigan, I needed to take my BRZ to a shop that had dealt with more than just a handful of them. Six Star Motorsports seemed to have had several through their shop, I was even reassured that they had dealt with a similar setup before. Taking the car to the shop was no easy task, but it was a relief coming into such a welcoming shop. From that point on they ran several tests and double checked all my work prepping it for dyno tuning. After the tuning process, I couldn't have been any more pleased with the end results. They tuned it to my exact liking and the car feels amazing and runs great! These people here sure know a thing or two about Subaru's! They now have a returning customer for all my Subaru race car needs! Thank you!!
19:22 30 Nov 21
What can you say, these guys are truly a one stop shop and can handle anything you need. Always taking care of all their customers and are very professional. Thanks a lot guys! ?
21:07 26 Oct 21
The Staff and Techs at that place are awesome. They fixed my subaru impreza 15 rear hub bearing noise issue. I usually fix my own car but this time i couldn’t fix the rear hub due to the hub bearing being seized up because of rust. Many thanks to you guys.
23:26 21 Oct 21
Needed to get some stuff and they helped me out with a quickness. Mark and the guys are awesome here. I'd recommend them for your Subaru needs.
17:46 01 Oct 21
The service at Six Star is top notch. I contacted these guys regarding my Legacy GT wagon in need of some TLC. After a thorough review of the car, they worked with me on determining the best plan of attack for what I was looking for and within my budget. Despite being a busy shop they got the car back to me quick and in great shape. Overall, can't recommend them enough. Great service, communication, and pricing. Not just a tuner shop, they do it all. Heck, they even recommended a body shop. As long as I am a Subaru owner I'll be coming back to Six Star.
20:38 02 Jul 21
Great customer service! The sales manager Chris was very knowledgeable on my Subaru Legacy year and was able to guess what the problem was before his mechanic even put it up on the lift. Bad wheel bearing. The shop seemed very busy so best to drop your vehicle off rather than wait. I will be back for my next 30k scheduled maintenance checkpoint.
00:14 25 Jun 21
This is an amazing shop with amazing people working together! They have helped me 3 different times now, twice with getting me clutches for my racecar while I've been traveling from the west coast. The last time they got my coovers adjust and alignment at while they were getting ready for a show. I would recommend them to anyone who has a Subaru, they know what they are doing, and pushing the limits with new stuff. Thank you Six Star Motorsports!
17:18 10 May 21
Hands down the best service to use when needing to tune your subaru. This place was a little bit out of the way but i was beyond happy with the outcome. I will be returning for all my subaru needs
15:09 24 Mar 21
Do not go to the dealership for any work. This is the place you want to take your Subaru to for either basic maintenance, repair work or tuning. They will be beat dealership pricing, and use OEM parts. Don't give your money to the dealership give it to them!
02:58 24 Mar 21
If you got a Subaru, stock of modified, this is where you want to go! They know everything about these cars. It’s more than just making cars go faster, they do all the routine maintenance to keep it running forever also! Super humble people and always have the right answer. Unlike dealerships, they will always shoot you straight, they value integrity over profit in my opinion, amazing service from some really cool dudes!
01:40 28 Feb 21
These folks definitely live up to their reputation and exceed all expectations! As a 1st time service customer, I was I treated like a valued regular, even scheduling my appointment around work & severe weather. Once I arrived, I was given the opportunity to wait & the service was completed quicker than I anticipated. The inspection results were detailed and honest with explanation that anyone from a new Subaru owner, to a long time technical enthusiast can understand easily. Hands down best customer service from ANY repair shop. I'll be spending more time & money there whenever it comes anything my Subaru needs.
16:10 04 Feb 21
I have taken 2 cars here (one Subaru and one not) and both times I was very pleased with their service. Even before I started spending on repairs of the first car, they were more than willing to talk me through the purchase of a used Subaru and warned me of things to look out for. More often than not, I learn things from just being in the shop and asking questions. All of the employees are genuinely friendly and are just looking to help you achieve your goals. If you’re looking for a good, honest group of mechanics and enthusiasts, this is the place. Also, they keep motul products in stock (which isn’t always common) and have a good parts counter, if you’re thinking about aftermarket parts check here first.
15:08 21 Jan 21
This is my first experience with Six Star Motorsports. I was having my tuning done by Boosted Tuning Performance (Graham) at their location. My car had just recently had a new short block put in by my local dealership. I had been having issues from day one. Weeks of fighting with the dealership to make it right. They had the car for over 13 weeks total and gave me every excuse in the book why it wasn’t running right. I tell you this information because on my day of tuning with Boosted Performance Tuning at Six Star Motorsports I was having issues where my tune session had to be postponed. The guys at Six Star found the issues AND repaired it in 45 minutes. Yes you read that right. 45 minutes. My car got tuned and is running better than ever. These guys are passionate about what they do. I got a tour of the shop and some of their projects. I literally spent the entire day around this shop and saw many interactions with customers in person and on the phone. I was so happy and impressed with these guys that I got a quote for my other Subaru and will be putting it on a trailer and driving 3 hours to drop it off with them. I trust them to work on my vehicles. They have earned a new loyal customer. Thank you guys! I’ll be seeing you!
15:50 05 Sep 20
Gosh do these guys do good work! Forsure the Midwest Mecca of Subaru. They are busy year round so make sure you have ample time before you call for an appointment
22:25 28 Aug 20
I've been to Six Star a number of times and they have never let me down. Good pricing on parts, quality service on odd jobs, people who know how to work on a Subaru and have the right tools for the job. Mark and the rest of the team have been great to work with.
03:28 05 Aug 20
If you love your Subaru as much as I do, you want to take it to a shop that you can trust. The crew at 6 star, no matter if your issue is big or small will be there for you to give you the best answers and service your car deserves. I hope to have this shop build my car one day and I will not take it anywhere else. If your looking for quality work and a great crew look no further. Thanks guys!
14:45 22 Jul 20
This place rocks!! Literally the best customer service ever! They were able to help me out when my car was down. They brought it back to normal in no time! They kept me updated throughout the whole process! Will definitely be bring my car back here for all of its service!! Shoutout to Mark and Adam who made my experience so amazing!!
00:55 17 Jul 20
Great shop. Everyone is very cool and knowledgeable. I've been in a few times to have work done on my WRX, or just to ask general questions, and it's always a good experience. They specialize in a lot of aftermarket work, but don't hesitate to stop in if your vehicle is stock; you can also get routine maintenance done at reasonable prices. So check them out!
19:05 05 Jul 20
Mark and the gang are awesome! Helped me out with some blown coilovers that I didn’t get from them or installed there (first mistake) and got them taken care of under warranty. Thanks Dewey for the rear springs that now match the fronts. I can’t thank these guys enough. The car feels so much better and doesn’t have that annoying clunk over every bump. The only shop I will ever take my car to! Thanks guys...
16:40 20 Jun 20
Gave me the best deals on parts for my 2019 WRX. Even helped me fix my car a few times in the past on my old 2016 WRX over the phone. Highly recommend them!
01:54 26 May 20
So happy with the work that was done on my car! Everyone was extremely professional and knowledgeable. Marvin worked with me every step of the way and provided me with a path to a faster and more reliable driving experience. Will definitely use them again.
16:35 29 Apr 20
Words can't put how much these guys have helped me. Awsome staff and team.. positive vibes everywhere.
09:22 07 Mar 20
Great place! Everyone was super friendly took the time to answer and understand the many questions I had. Marvin is awesome and super helpful!
00:40 15 Feb 20
Six Star Motorsports the best thing happened to me this year! They save a lot of money for me this year!! Mark Sadowski is the coolest person i have to work with. Ask them for any Subaru needs!! Best place to go with!
23:51 09 Feb 20
I will always 100% always recommend Six* for all Subaru related work. They legit treat you like family and always look out for your best interest.
00:00 08 Feb 20
Great place! Drove from Detroit MI, and these guys took very good care of me. 10/10
15:26 06 Feb 20
Great people very helpful and worth every penny
22:52 05 Feb 20
Won't take my subaru anywhere else, these guys are the best of the best when it comes to a subaru shop in the Chicagoland area.
16:12 19 Jan 20
The best Subaru shop in Chicagoland
17:49 04 Jan 20
Never been disappointed with a single visit. I've come to the point where they are the only people I trust to service my 2014 hatch STI. Every time I get my car back from them, I drive away smiling and I can guarantee you will be too. You can really feel the difference in quality of work from the moment you step on the gas from their shop. On top of that, these guys very inviting, personable, and honest with you. Whether you know a lot, or not so much, about cars, they will make a point to inform you on every aspect of what they do. They will also respectfully correct you, if you happen to be misinformed on something, or simply not as knowledgable. Even if you just have some questions about your car, you can ask them anything and be sure that you're getting the most accurate info. Biggest job they did for me was fix my blown head gasket. After getting the car back, it drives better than the day I bought it. There is a sense of pride in knowing Six Star worked on your car and repping them with their logo. I don't think I will ever go anywhere else and I even go as far as saying that their shop is one of the reasons why I'll probably never move away from Illinois. Worth it.
23:53 11 Dec 19
Wonderful group of guys who went to great lengths to make my Legacy just the way I wanted it. I wouldn't take my car anywhere else.
23:25 20 Oct 19
Great customer service!! Called a few times and have always gotten quality service. Very easy to reach and helpful with questions.
03:06 18 Oct 19
Great service, had my GT-R diagnosed, serviced, and dynod.
19:07 11 Oct 19
Went to buy fluids and guy recommend fluids and was very helpful!
01:31 01 Oct 19
Where do I start, the whole Six Star team can be described in one word. Integrity. They literally look out for you, your vehicle, and ultimately want you the customer, to be happy. I've brought my 15' STI there for the past 3 years ever since I moved back from the west coast and they have been nothing but a pleasure to work with. I've never been pressured or upsold on any work or unecessary parts. You must be insane to give anything less than 5 stars.
00:54 26 Sep 19
Only place I take my 2015 WRX when it needs maintenance. They are very knowledgeable and professional. Will never take my Subaru anywhere else!!

Marvin and the team were extremely helpful not just taking care of my 2002 WRX but now my 2004 WRX. From having my transmission swapped in a timely manner to managing my tuning needs for my built 2004 WRX. I can always expect timely service and genuine customer service from this shop. 5/5 A+ !!
20:02 12 Jul 19
Everyone there if funny, nice, and extremely helpful! The price is pretty good compared to where I go usually
20:20 26 Jun 19
Six Star is the only place I trust to keep my 13+ year old stock WRX on the road. Everyone in the shop is encyclopedic about Subarus and it's clear the mechanics put a lot of care into their work. Mark and his team are always thorough in their diagnosis, explain all the work up front (with photos), and provide fair, fully itemized estimates before getting started. After a number of disappointing experiences with dealers and other Subaru shops in the area over the years, I'll continue to make the trip to Six Star as long as I own a Subaru. Highly recommended!

Very professional and straightforward from start to finish. Great pricing and customer service. Will be back for more.
22:57 09 May 19
GREAT SHOP! had some really bad rattles under the car and they did a great job fixing it 🙂 will definitely come back.
21:22 25 Apr 19
Great people, service and mechanic work. They know what they're talking about and are willing to help with any questions you may have.
18:10 20 Apr 19
These guys are the best! My first interaction with this shop was when I was calling shops around the Chicago area trying to figure out who could do a stage 2 setup on my 05FXT. I was immediately drawn to them due to their super friendly nature and their expansive knowledge, not to mention their reviews. I scheduled a time with them to run some tests on my engine to see if it was fit for a stage 2 set up, since it did have about 138000 miles on it. Unfortunately they discovered a head gasket leak/failure which is not super uncommon for these cars at this age. But I was looking on the bright side because several other shops were prepared to just slap stage 2 bits on my car with no prior inspections and I wouldn’t have known any better, and then I would have encountered much bigger problems down the road. So to fix the issue of the leaky head gasket I declided to have them rebuild my engine, as opposed to just a head gasket replacement or buying a whole different car. I went with this because they have a rebuild option that isn’t focused on power, but reliability. That was very appealing to me since I wanted to be reassured that I’d have no more problems with my engine and I also wasn’t looking for crazy power numbers. Plus, at least from what I could find, six star is the only shop in the area to offer a rebuild package like that. After having the car back for a mont after the build, the engine runs buttery smooth and absolutely no problems. Plus they threw in some extra torques when they tuned it because they knew I’d like to have a little fun ?. Couldn’t have left my car with a better bunch of guys, I highly recommend this shop!
18:42 28 Mar 19
Very professional people! Dewey is the man when it comes to ordering parts! They’re always responsive when you have any questions. Very competitive prices and fast shipping. They got my Subaru’s ecu swapped in a day! I highly recommend this shop for anything Subaru.
00:15 23 Mar 19
These guys do great work, I wouldnt take my subaru anywhere else. I dont know of any other shop that specialize in subarus like six star does. Fantastic customer service as well. They have taken good care of me and im sure they will do the same for you.
22:20 08 Mar 19
From the very beginning till the end was nothing but professionalism and respect for these guys. After having a rough experience from a dealership I wish I would have came here first. Definitely recommend Six Star for everything between routine maintenance to performance upgrades. They know what they are doing. Thank you!
02:38 05 Mar 19
These guys are awesome! Recently had a motor built by them for my 2018 STI. This is my first Subaru and also first turbo car so these guys took the time to really explain the process and made sure everything was getting done correctly. The guys here don’t treat you as a work order either, they will get to know you by name. Im very satisfied with my car and even more with the knowledge I’ve gained from Marvin, Mark and Dewey. This will be the only shop I take my car to.
15:03 28 Feb 19
Really awesome and laid back people. Very knowledgeable with Subaru’s. They also have a awesome on hand stock of modifications like turbochargers, turbo inlet hoses, exhaust, etc. Plus it looks like they had some dealership parts on hand too!
18:08 16 Jan 19
Do yourself and your Subaru a favor and go see these guys, they're simply the best. I couldn't be more happy with the results and the entire experience I had.
00:02 12 Jan 19
Wonderful people to work with. Quality is top notch.
02:01 14 Dec 18
Fair pricing, expert mechanics, great customer service. Downside is that they are always booked; shows how good they are. Even if you aren't a customer, they will steer you in the right direction for parts or advice. if you care about your Subaru/ turbo-awd car, this place is for you.
18:49 01 Nov 18
I can't say enough good things about this shop. I've been working with them for years and they have always helped me out in times of need. Even if it was a simple oil change on my Crosstrek or a full engine build it's always a pleasure working with these guys. They will always be my go to shop!
04:15 01 Nov 18
Needed to fix an annoying leak that no one could source and fix but, Mark and the crew took great care of me, they found it and took care of it. Pointed out what needed to be do done and what as looking good. Huge thanks to Six Star Motorsports will definitely go back if I ever need work and would recommend you give them a call!
03:22 09 Sep 18
The team at Six Star is wonderful! They took amazing care of my Forester during its 60K/brake service, and the car feels great. Even took time to schedule a secondary inspection to diagnose a potential clutch issue. They are knowledgable, happy to answer questions, and make you feel very welcome. No doubt they are the best around, and only want the best for you and your vehicle.
21:32 17 Aug 18
Love this place! Always a friendly person there that's willing to help listen and teach. Great selection on items. If you want it and do not see it dont be hesitant to ask I'm sure they can get it for you and more than likely at a lower price as well. This place would be my first selection on localized performance knowledge based people. Highly recommended!
02:11 25 May 18
Wonderful people to work with. Quality is top notch.
22:39 10 May 18
Pricey but at the same time reasonable. They will definitely be getting my business if the need arises again.
