Question Anyone know of a good PPI mechanic in West Covina, CA?

Hey guys, found another potential:


Had a friend drop by to test the car. Overall, pretty nice, but a few quibbles:

- 3" rip in passenger seat
- missing passenger side cupholder
- leather a bit faded/worn
- rear tires need replacing

Am looking for somewhere to do a PPI near West Covina, but the closest I could find was TRE Motorsports (a little far away). Mueller Motor Services in Alhambra doesn't answer the phone. Any suggestions?

Wow that's a good price! It looks like w/ the repairs you mentioned you are looking at least;

$550+ for rear tires.
$750-$1.5k for new passenger seat. It has an option interoir color which cost more,I doubt junkyards will have it which only leaves you with ordering a new one.

I've seen that ad before, and its been there for quite a while. Is the seller a "private" dealer? Believe me, I checked autotrader and all all other sites daily when I was in the market for a used boxster. I purchased mine just about a month ago now.

In any event, I take my car to Rusnak and my service advisor there is awesome. Rusnak is by old town Pasadena and I'm sure they can fit you in for a PPI.

PM if you want this guy's name. It may be pricey, but its definitely worth it at Rusnak.
