Good Porsche Mechanic, Austin, TX

Does anybody know a good HONEST experienced Porsche mechanic in Austin TX? I'm new in the area and do not know much about cars.

I also have a leak in the power steering (86, 944, 45000 miles). A mechanic said that I need to replace the pump and the pressure hose. Every week i have to top my car up with fluid since the reading from the dipstick will be down from the middle of the two lines to the bottom line. I only drive 80 miles/week.

Will I damage my car if I wait for 1-2 months to fix the problem since the leak is not very serious?

Howdy fellow texan,

A couple of years ago I bought a 944 in Austin and before doing so, I took the car to get a thorough inspection. I live outside San Antonio and didn't know any mechanics so I just started calling mechanics and shops in the Austin area. I ended up with Matt (don't know his last name) at TPWS (The Porsche Work Shop) off Lamar road on the north end of town.

The guy impressed me with his knowledge and did a great job on the inspection. In fact, because of his thoroughness I got several thousand $$ knocked off the price when I presented the seller Matt's write-up. I wouldn't hesitate a minute to go back to him. I'm sure there are other solid mechanics in the area, but this was my experience. I can dig a phone number up if you need it.
