A & P is one of the few true alternative shops to Audi dealer service and in many ways they are better technicians and more caring.

I feel like they do good work but are super expensive. Just replacing stuff without looking for some less expensive work-around.

Verified CustomerJuly 30, 2015

I had a good experience here.

You will not find a better Porsche machanic in the state! Al is so honest and such a genuine guy! I would not take by 76 Targa anyware else. I have used Al's services since new 1976. You will not be dissapointed. A real plus is that if it needs it he can fix it! You will not have anything done that is not necessary! Mike
