Can you recommend a Porsche Mechanic or Shop in Toronto?

Hi, I wanted to see if anyone has any recommendations for a mechanic or shop in Toronto that is reasonably priced. I have a 99 boxster and am not mechanically inclined at all, so most maintenance things I need to bring the car in. For instance I had a bulb go out in the instrument cluster and I can only imagine what the cost would be to bring the car to the Porsche dealer to have it changed. Thanks.

Which part of Toronto are you from?

There's EU Autowerks in Woodbridge, if you're in the west end there's Mantis in Oakville.

I've started going to EU recently and they're a good bunch of guys.

Thanks for the quick reply guys. I am in mid-town Toronto so EU Autowerks would be closest. What maintenance work have you had done and how does pricing compare to Pfaff and Downtown?

Oil change at EU (from what I can recall) is $250 vs $450 at the dealer. Give Dominic @ EU a call and he can tell you the costs in detail.
