Find your local mechanic/porsche specialist

Okay, here is an idea I had after meeting up with a few of the guys from the Dallas/Ft. Worth area over the weekend. How about everyone posting OTHER places you can get your Boxster serviced in your area, other then the Porsche Dealerships. I for one am tired of paying for the overpriced services that the dealerships charge. I think it would be a great idea if we could have a section that would list all Porsche Boxster specialist in each area that are not dealerships. I found a few in my area just by using the phone book and google, but after meeting with some other members from this forum over the weekend realized there were allot more out there that I could not even find on-line or in the phone book. Mainly because I did not know the names of the Mechanics and/or Companies. Anyone out there think this sounds like a good idea? Can we get this organized somehow?

I am in the same school of thought. Living in a small town area doesn't present alot of options.

I have found one for BMW and one of his mechanics has just opened a shop for Porsche right behind him.

Yes, this is what I was hoping we could all do. But what do we have to do to make this a perminate list here on the forum board? I will start making a list for the Dallas/Ft. Worth area.

Independent Repair shops

Folks, that is a great idea that you have tossed out there.... hopefully the good people at the 986 Forum will add these shops that you have ID'd to a link on their webpage. I am anxious to see how many folks respond with shops in their areas. I am a newbie to the Boxster world, and it was many years ago when I had my last Porsche, which was a 88 944.

Can anyone recommend a good shop in Harrisburg (Mechanicsburg) other than Sun? I have not gone there but I have not heard good things. The guy I bought my car from said they destroyed one of his wheels changing a tire.

I had my previous Boxster serviced at Motorsports Northwest in Boise, ID

511 Americana Blvd
Boise, ID 83702
(208) 345-9444

The owner, "Red", was PCA member of the year a few years back and is a damn cool guy.

I had my current Boxster serviced at ******************************** International (www.i********************************.com) by Andy. He did a great job and I had zero issues on my 3900-mile roadtrip after he replaced my spark plug tube seals.

Tempe, AZ 85282

Looking for Orange County CA area dealer and non-dealer recommendations...
Any places to avoid?....

I am guessing Newport are the big boys in town, but how is their service dept?
and of course, any independents around.
I am in Anaheim, so don't want to go further south than newport if I don't have to.
