Suggestions for dealer service in Houston?

Help, please. I bought my car in Austin, but now need to get some basic maintenance done (oil) here in Houston. Still under warranty so not ready for DIY. Appreciate if some could share thoughts on best dealer service / service reps, etc.. Southwest part of town is a bit easier, but will drive anywhere for a good shop, deal...

Many thanks!

I have a certified porsche technician as a friend who works on Pcars on the side and will save you oodles of cash on maintenance. Call me at 832-474-7381 for his name and number.

He lives near Westheimer and Dairy Ashford. Not too far away from you.

ok... so I lurk a lot

I have been lurking on this forum for a while as I am planning on getting a boxster soon... so this is my first post

Try Autodynamica on 290... a friend of mine had his Audi A4 serviced there and said they were cheap and they had 2 996TT there, one for regular stuff and the other was a Evo GT800 they did...

Welcome to the board! We should get together some time soon. Have you gone to a dealership to drive one yet? I'd do that right away. If for no other reason, it will give you all the energy you need to save up for one.

I bought mine knowing I'd love it and never drove one before I had my keys in my hand.
