When I asked them if I just wanted them to do the oil change (I can do the checks myself), I was told "same charge".

They may do quality work, but I don't know if its worth _that_ much!
Yeah prices are higher, but quality of work is really good (oil change should not matter). Try fremont porsche - ask for Gunther, they are best dealer service around.

Heyer performance charged me $270 for a plain oil change last year - I have not gone back and that is what led me to the mistake of going to C.T. Automotive.
