Come to Walt's Service Inc. in Columbia to get high-performance brakes that stop with authority every time regardless of road conditions. We have organic, ceramic, and metallic replacement brake pads with applications ranging from daily driving to track racing to off-roading.

Upgrade to high-performance rotors, calipers, master cylinders, and brake fluids the next time you have your brakes serviced at Walt's Service Inc. in Columbia.

Talk To Walt's Service Inc. About High-Performance Brake Service Upgrades:

Metal Brake Pads: Performance-driven drivers prefer the metallic brake pads because they tolerate a much wider range of temperatures and track conditions. Metal brake pads are excellent conductors of heat making them able to withstand more heat without debonding while also cooling back down rapidly.

Line Locks: Love a good smokey burnout? Let your rear wheels spin aggressively without wasting your rear brake pads. Get your line lock installed by the auto repair experts at Walt's Service Inc. in Columbia. Allow your front brakes to lock independently of the rear brakes with just the flip of a simple switch.

Brake Booster: Get a master cylinder on steroids by adding a brake booster installed by the expert mechanics at Walt's Service Inc.. Reduce the amount of pedal pressure needed for braking with higher hydraulic pressure and lower force applied on the brake pedal.

Drum to Disc Conversion: You love your classic car but let's face it, those old drums make stopping hazardous. For restoration enthusiasts, the mechanics at Walt's Service Inc. specialize in 15-inch wheel drum to disc conversion that maintains the original manufacturer aesthetics. Get a complete brake system that includes 11-inch drilled and slotted rotors, single-piston cast calipers, stock or drop spindles, and a master cylinder with brake booster when you do your drum to disc conversion at Walt's Service Inc..


What Our Customers Are Saying

Was driving from NY to LA when my Bus started dying on the highway. Lookup the nearest VW mechanic and come here. Walt is great! He took a look at my Bus, even though it was late and he was busy-and told me the last guy who rebuilt the engine screwed up. I trusted Walt to rebuild the engine, and he did it cheaper and quicker than the first mechanic, and much better! I now have 10-15mph higher top speed and it runs a lot smoother. Driving from MO to LA I went from losing 1qt/1000 miles to losing no oil! Superb job, honest guy, nobody knows more about air-cooled VWs than he.

My daughter, a MU student, and her used 2007 high mileage Audi A4 broke down, the car was towed to Walt's. Walt called me the next day and went over his diagnostics and recommendations. He only recommended what needed to be done and did not recommend useless/costly repairs. When the car was complete, he called me with the final bill which was totally reasonable. He was timely and great to work with! I highly recommend this repair shop, it is so hard to find honest and qualified technicians and mechanics these days and Walt is truly one of the best I have ever worked with. I will definitely be back, thank you so much!

I have an old (2001) high mileage (155k+) VW Golf, and I only take it to Walt's. The staff is friendly, honest, fair, and fairly quick with repairs. They give you options and explain the pros and cons of optional repairs. They keep my old Golf running well, with fair costs for repairs. I would (and have) recommended to anyone with a VW or similar German car.

I had my MINI Cooper serviced here. These guys are great. They showed me everything about my car (as I know nothing about cars). The Baron MINI in Kansas City told me I needed new front and back brakes and rotors. After showing me how much brake pad I had left on the back brakes, the guy at Walt's said "that's nuts and these should last at least another year". They also did quality work and cost a couple hundred bucks less! I am very pleased!

I have seen the work they do on Porsche 911's, many times, first hand. They are friendly and helpful. Very knowledgeable staff. If they tell you something, listen to them. The best Porsche service in MO.

To say that Walt is honest would be the understatement of the century! As a female, I'm always nervous about being taken advantage of. And with a 2005 BMW Z4, sometimes work needs to be done!Thank you Walt. You have created a loyal customer.

Would not take my Passat Wagon anywhere else! They have always finished my repairs in a very timely manner and at the most reasonable rates. They are truly professional in all areas of service. Thanks again, guys, for taking care of me and my vehicle.

This place is trustworthy, dependable and communicates everything to you very well. I graduated from MU and now drive all the way from Saint Louis so that I can get my car serviced at this location. No other service center can compare to these guys.

A good shop with experienced techs and good labor rate compared to larger places. They know what they are doing!

reviewicon

Walt's shop has worked on three of my vehicles during the past couple of years. Results were excellent, and I found their prices competitive with other shops in the area. Everyone there is helpful and courteous. My vehicles include domestic brand trucks and SUV's so be aware Walt's work is not limited to just imported models.

reviewicon

This shop has been consistently top notch for service, honesty, and pricing. Although the specialize in foreign cars, I also take my other vehicles to them, as well. I highly recommend them.
