I am (and will continue to be) a satisfied return customer.

A lot better than Porsche dealership.

by - Verified Customer January 26, 2017

The folks at IMA are great as is their work. They aren't the cheapest option, but with the cost comes top notch service.

Been there a couple times. Great service each time

by - Verified Customer January 20, 2017

Ivan diagnosed the problems on my Porsche, made the necessary repairs himself, and charged me a fair price for the work done. I would highly recommend IMA.

Great overall experience

by - Verified Customer January 17, 2017

Ivan and Alan both responded right away when I inquired about having some work done on line. As requested, a thorough inspection and diagnostics were run on the car and a detailed repair order was presented and thoroughly explained. I was pleased with how fast the work was completed. Ivan went over everything in detail upon picking up the car and took the time to answer questions I had about replacing the IMS bearing. Alan and Ivan are both very approachable, courteous, professional and honest and the work is impeccable. This is the second Porsche I have owned and I would not think about going anywhere else for repairs or maintenance.

Only been there once in early March 2015.

by - Verified Customer March 10, 2015

They love Porsches in particular, and cars in general which is backed up with a tremendous amount of racing/race car building experience. I have two Porsches, one old and one not so old-- I take the older one in for routine service and problems, and I take the newer one in for service plus limited upgrades. I will spend money on my cars if I think that it is necessary, and they have the opportunity to recommend and perform upgrades well beyond what we have ended up doing. If it was just about money, they could have made a lot more by going ahead doing some of the ones I have asked about, not to mention recommending others--they have repeatedly waved me off a number of things I have asked about and suggested alternatives that are more appropriate and cost effectve. They are in it for the long term. Additionally, I live in DC and it is very difficult for me to get out to Chantilly--it is futile during rush hour, and they do back flips to accommodate my scheduling needs. One time, one of their mechanics stayed well into the evening installing an original type sound system in my old Porsche plus performing other maintenance so I could drive it to my college reunion. Sure, they need to make money, but they really care about the cars.
