I bought my first car as a 21-year-old in 1967, a Porsche 912. Since that time I have had several cars (BMW 2002, Porsche 944, Saab 900, Mitsubishi 3000GT VR4, Jeep Cherokee, RAV4) that have been serviced at a number of dealerships and independent shops. Recently (April 2014), I purchased a 2000 Porsche 996 with the M96 engine that, as the reader may know, has a small number of flaws, at least one of which can produce a catastrophic engine failure. In my search to find an independent Porsche shop in the Denver metropolitan area to correct these flaws, I discovered the website for Autowerks East. In reading the description of Greg’s experiential history and the testimonials to his (and his technicians) skills and personal integrity, I decided to meet with him and have my car evaluated. I was so impressed by Greg and his staff at that initial meeting that I decided to have him do the critical work needed on my car to provide me with what I expect to be years of anxiety-free driving. I often drive between Colorado and Pennsylvania and, for a host of obvious reasons, do not want my car to implode in the middle of Kansas. I am writing this review shortly after the work was completed and before I make the trip east. I will probably have a follow-up review after the trip and some more additional miles have been put on the car. Here are my early impressions. In the 47 years I have had my cars serviced, I have never had interactions with a mechanic/technician/businessman like Greg. In the three weeks subsequent to our first meeting, he has probably spent 5-6 hours in conversation with me. As a result, my sense is that he establishes relationships with his clients that are based on doing what is in their best interests, not on what drives his bottom line. In our conversations he has been an educator, an advisor, and a willing listener as I ask questions about the variety of fixes that must be done on the engine and express my concerns about other potential mechanical issues that may arise. He has also been an important advisor and ally in exchanges I had with the dealership where I purchased the car over a safety issue that should have been addressed, but was not, before delivery. The issue was resolved to my complete satisfaction. I attribute this successful resolution to Greg’s guidance as I negotiated with the dealer. At this point, I can say with genuine confidence that Greg and his staff have the highest level of personal integrity of any technicians with whom I have entrusted my cars. My expectation is that these impressions will not change as time passes. I should note that I have never been happier to pay a bill for work on one of my cars than I was when I paid Greg. Indeed, I would recommend that anyone who is planning to purchase a used Porsche (or BMW, Mercedes, etc.) take the car to Greg’s shop for a pre-purchase inspection. Had I met Greg before making my purchase, the transaction would have taken place much more to my satisfaction than it did.
