Bugstop Automotive was opened in 1984 as a Volkswagen Specialist and VW Speed and Custom shop. We started in a modest 1300sq.ft. facility with a small parts and accessory store. We hosted the first “Canadian VW Nationals” all Volkswagen car show that year and drew an impressive 84 cars to the one day event which later grew to include drag racing at Grand Bend Motorplex with hundreds of cars participating form across Canada and the U.S.. As the business grew the shop became larger taking on three technicians. Our primary focus was fabricating dune buggies, engine building, drag racing and the sale of speed and custom parts. General service was then a secondary focus. As time went on we evolved to what we are today.


A full service Volkswagen specialty shop covering over 4000 sq.ft. and employing four Government Certified Technicians. We may no longer do the custom work as in the past but continue to have a passion for Volkswagens. Our service department caters to all makes, import and domestic, with the most up to date technical imformation at our fingertips. We continue to service the do-it-yourselfer with a large selection of parts in stock and speedy delivery from our warehouse facility. Along with quality parts comes advice from a licenced Volkswagen Specialist. So, whether you’d like to do it yourself or prefer to have one of our technicians do it for you, we’re here for all your automotive needs. Come to Bugstop Automotive for Parts, Service or just a little advice.
