I can not give you specific shop advice but how about some business advice?

1. Expand......put on a junior mechanic to handle the small jobs. If your workshop is big enough split it in two. Make the exotic side white- as presentable as possible. Make a distinction between the two sides. Put a receptionist on, if only during your busiest hours.

Alternatively get a driver! take the small jobs and farm them out to other shops. Negotiate special rates and make profit in the margin.

If you are really adventurous......get a second location dedicated to the exotics. It does not have to be flash on the outside. The inside needs to be a different matter.

Obviously these ideas may not fit your situation.......but -"The more ideas the bigger the options the better the results".

Cheers

Mark........
