When you walk into Bauer Porsche, you know you've come to the right place. They eat and breathe Porsche here, and it's evident when you see the assortment of cars in their shop. The owner Chris has been around Porsches for almost 40 years; at the dealership, independents, and his own shop since 1988. You're not going to be blown away by Italian marble and fancy furnishings, this is not that kind of place. They invest in the tools needed to diagnose and fix your Porsche, and that's what matters to Bauer. It's very impressive to see the teamwork here, they will work together to tackle anything that comes in the door. Their passion for Porsche is undeniable. If you're in the area for Art Murmur on the first Friday of the month, their doors are normally open, so peek in and say hello.

They're a great place, they've always done perfect stuff for me and I recommend them.

Verified CustomerNovember 29, 2012

I'm very pleased with their work, they do good job.

Verified CustomerNovember 28, 2012

It's great service, and a great location. The owner is a great guy. He has to schedule you to get you in, because he doesn't always have time. Once he has time though, he gets it done pretty quickly.

Verified CustomerNovember 10, 2012

They do a good job. I have a Porsche, it is a high-end Porsche. We did a lot of race modifications on it and I was satisfied. They gave me a good consultation on what they could do and how to do it. I did a lot of after-market stuff on that car and they know what they're doing.

Verified CustomerNovember 06, 2012

Well I think that, as a woman, sometimes finding a shop is hard and I think that Brian at Porsche Repair is extremely trustworthy. The car is always done on time, they never try to upsell me, they never pressure me or make me think there is more work that needs to be done. The only negative that I have to say is that they don't have a drop off for keys, it's kind of inconvenient (but it's worth it!).

These guys take the best care of my car, and defnitley know their Porsche's. I would not take my Porsche anywhere else. Have been going to them since I bought my used Porsche from them four years ago.
