Default Independent service shop in LA/San fernando?

Can anyone recommend a good independent Porsche/European mechanic shop in the Los Angeles/San Fernando Valley area? Obviously the more affordable, the better. Thanks.

I've had great experiences at both Dutch Treat http://www.dutchtreat.org/www.dutcht...g/Welcome.html and Callas Rennsport http://www.callasrennsport.com/ in the South Bay.

I have a 2006 Cayman S, and I think I need the air oil separator changed. Thanks.

I was going to post a similar request. I just bought an '02 996 Cabriolet and am looking for references on service shops (Foreign Sport Technicians, CEC Tuning and 200 NMW are some I've noted so far). I am considering doing the ROW suspension, exhaust and chip. I also need a bit of interior work done on the console (it's spotted in some areas).

Any references appreciated.

I was referred to EuroSpec Motoring on Pico in L.A. Jeff really seems to know what he's doing and they're constantly booked (which I take as a good sign). I just recently purchase my car so I don't have a whole lot of experience as to what is competitive but what he charged me seemed fair.

Other than EuroSpec or Red Line, any other recommendations on the westside for a PPI? Unfortunately it's time sensitive as I need a PPI for a 2001 996tt a guy is holding for me for one day. Thank you.

Also looking to get a PPI done for a 996tt in the LA area.

If someone can recommend a shop, it would be much appreciated.

TL;DR - Called EuroSport and Tom is Incredible.

Yesterday I called EuroSport for some information about the PPI and spoke to Tom.

Tom blew my mind. He is just an honest car guy that cares about you the customer even if its at his expense. He spent a while talking to me and discussing other aspects of the decision to buy this car. I personally wanted to send him some money just because he spent that much time doing so much do dilligence with me.

I don't know everything about EuroSport or Tom, but based on my discussions with Tom. He was a true car guy doing what he loves. I wouldn't hesitate to do business with him in the future.

That's nice to hear. I had that same feeling when working with Robert and Rafi at R2 Racing in Santa Clarita. They even talked me out of doing unnecessary work on my car.
