It can be a wee bit frustrating when your Porsche is in need of servicing and you aren’t sure where to take it for quality repairs that won’t cost you a pot of gold.

Taking your Porsche to a local independent Porsche mechanic, versus the dealer, might just be your lucky charm because it can save you money and enable you to build a relationship with a trained technician working on your vehicle.

Save Some Green

By taking your Porsche to an independent repair shop, you won’t have to worry about getting lucky on pricing because costs are generally lower than what the dealer charges.

No, not because of magic or that 4-leaf clover you picked out back, but because OEM parts are not marked up as much and because indy shops have lower hourly rates since overhead is significantly less.

Authentic Service – No Foolishness Here

Independent Porsche service centers tend to offer a more genuine, personalized service than that of the dealer.

You are likely to be in direct communication with your Porsche mechanic each time you come into their shop. This allows you to form a solid relationship with them, instead of talking to a different service advisor each visit about the repair recommendations a different mechanic suggested while working on your Porsche.

Finding the right Porsche mechanic can be a blessing when your Porsche needs servicing. Don’t become bogged down at the dealer and fall victim to the blarney and shenanigans they can play when it comes to cost and personalized service.

So grab a pint, dance the jig and spread some cheer—save yourself that pot of gold by taking your Porsche to a local independent Porsche repair shop.
