Question for San Diego Owners

thinking of getting a 00 base in san diego but would like to have the car inspected first. do any of you boxster owners in san diego know of a place where it can be preinspected. i believe the owner lives in escondido so somewhere not to far from that would probably be best. also what does it cost to have the preinspection done.. thanks.

I would recommend Dieters, an independent in downtown San Diego. Hoehn Porsche is located in Carlsbad alongside the 805 freeway. Sorry, I don't know of anyone closer to Escondido.

It's been a while since I've driven it. I'd guess about 20 miles.

Carlsbad to Escondido is less than 10 miles. From Escondido, just take the Rte-78 West towards Oceanside, then it's a quick 3 miles South on the I-5. Hoehn Porsche is right off of Palomar Airport Rd

Del Dios Highway over to Rancho Santa Fe and then up to Carlsbad might be more "Fun"!

(Lived in SD for 20 years before moving out to Tejas.)

Other shops in SD

Pioneer porsche on miramar road. Down the 15 from Escondido "the dido"

Black Forest, a little more south, but a really good non-dealer shop.

Both can be found online.

Good luck.
