Looking for 951 Service Recommendation in Atlanta, GA

Hi,
I've got a low mileage 944T in which I need to have the rollers. belts, and water pump replaced because of age. I fired the shop that had been maintaining it for me when they screwed me over on a clutch replacement.

Anyone have any firsthand knowledge of a good shop in Atlanta (preferably NE) that you would recommend for this?

Thanks

You can contact manu4jc, his garage is located in MacArthur Blvd, should be close enough.

When I lived there I had mine done at European Motor Cars. Kinda pricey but they did a great job. They have a few locations in the area.

I used European Import Specialists for a PPI on my S2. Seemed knowledgeable about the model, were accommodating to my schedule, good communication, and I felt treated fairly. In Marietta.

German Car Repair in Alpharetta is legit, and not too far from you. Definitely worth checking out. They replaced my fuel lines and installed new tie rods for me. Top notch work, head mechanic is a German guy that used to work for Porsche in the motherland.

I may be a little farther being in Athens but I have 944 customers come from the far side of Atlanta for service. I charge 250 to 300 tops on labor for a 951 water pump and timing belt job (depending if you want front seals done too, etc.), better than any shop will charge for labor. If you're interested just send me a PM and we can go over more details.

It depends on what county you live in - not all require emissions- I'm pretty sure that you will be exempt because the car is over 25 years old.
