After getting their start in the interior trim industry in 1998, the staff at Austin Auto Interiors grew to specialize in factory-quality reupholstering, multimedia upgrades, and meticulous detailing. With access to more than one million leather seating combinations, the shop's leather service technicians dye, fit, and trim top-grain leather to replace worn-out seats and arm rests ravaged by restless backseat drivers. When the staff isn't reviving worn interiors and patching minor damage, they can be found making over dashes with woodgrain trim or embroidering custom headrests. Outside the realm of trim and accents, the multimedia experts at Austin Auto Interiors also equip whips with GPS navigation, seat heaters, and headrest video capabilities.

They impart their knowledge to prospective riders in their expansive show room as the presence of gleaming exhaust pipes and powerful engines causes adrenaline to percolate in the hearts of motorcycle lovers. The MotorClothes shop outfits riders in branded Harley leather jackets and shirts, and the parts shop vends custom engine components to keep beefed-up bikes running smoothly without resorting to smearing the open road in butter.
Getting behind the wheel of a Sterling Sedans and Limousines vehicle requires more than just a driver’s license, resumé, and pair of white chauffeur gloves. Each and every one of the company’s drivers must first pass a screening test, lending passengers confidence that they are in the hands of a trustworthy navigator. These insured drivers don professional attire as they steer luxury limousines, sedans, and SUVs to scheduled pickup locations across Austin. They ferry passengers to and from the airport, cart teenagers to and from school dances, customize dinner and theater nights out, or simply transport partiers around town to celebrate birthdays or the loss of all their baby teeth.

Superior Automotive's vehicle wizards work tirelessly to keep steel carriages of all makes and models running smoothly. During the oil change, a technician will drain engines of their used motor oil and refill them with up to five quarts of fresh standard oil. The 40- to 50-minute procedure also includes a tire rotation to make sure that all four of a vehicle's rubber feet wear down equally, keeping tires from unbolting themselves in dramatic acts of neglect-fueled rebellion. Both Superior Automotive shops are staffed by a team of experienced mechanics and equipped with five service bays, ensuring that barbershop quartets can let their managers tag along during group car-care outings.
