    I was due my BIG 60K service on my Porsche 987 Boxster, The dealer had quoted a very high price. I googled several independent places, Autohaus Lake Norman caught my eye. I went and had a discussion with Bernard about coming there now that I am out of warranty, we discussed the IMS issue that can occur with my model as a test of his Porsche knowledge (of course all I knew was what I had read on the net!) he was dead on in the knowledge of the issue I had read. They did my 60K service way cheap and through. Been going there every since for ALL my maintenance. There are always nice vehicles in the shop as well as domestics when I visit. They were even so great to grant my request to see my engine, I had had the car over almost six years before getting sight of the motor. My Boxster is a mid engine car with the engine below the base of the convertible top, both fore and aft deck lids reveal trunks not motor! Both Bernard and Owen have been great.
