Recommended Shop in Northern CA Bay Area???

I'm closing in on getting my first Boxster, I hope, LOL. It will be a MY '03S or '04S, with a Tip. In general I've been looking at cars with 70K to 90K miles. Does anyone have a recommendation for a shop in (or near) the Berkeley/Orinda/Walnut Creek area? I will need a shop that can do a PPI/Compression, Leakdown test, along with future repairs that I can't take care of myself. Two different shops would be OK if there is a good reason. My current best guess is Pacific Power Motorsports in Walnut Creek, but that's only based on yelp. All comments, suggestions, and help are appreciated. Thanks!

Throwing this back to the top, hoping for some local success stories. I looked at an '03 S Tip with ~90K miles today that is in really nice shape. No smoke at cold startup, light vacuum at the oil fill tube when running, and a coolant tank that looks pretty new (pale white, not yellowed at all). Sadly, there are no maintenance records, so I want to do a PPI for sure. Thanks!

Back in the day I worked next to S Car Go in San Rafael, they had a fantastic reputation.
