Good Indie Mechanic in Southern NH???

Hey everyone,

Can anyone refer me to a reasonable independant mechanic in Southern NH? My car is out of warranty and I want to find someone who knows what they are doing, and hopefully at a reasonable rate.

I am looking to do my RMS and IMS/IMS bearing replacement.

Thanks

Cory

You should check out these links . According to LN Engineering, in the past Auto Engineering in Lexington , Ma. has installed their IMS retro fit on a boxster . That's not to say that the other shops aren't capable of doing it, but its nice to know which one has actually performed this procedure .

.....and Auto Engineering isn't TOO far if you are coming from Salem, Nashua or Manchghanistan.

Tech starts at 7 AM.

With the numbers that we are looking at, there will be a lot of seat time.
