I brought one of my Porsche’s into this shop to get an estimate for an A/C compressor replacement. The person I dealt with is named Reid who is a total crook btw. He wanted to charge me $1900 for a compressor plus around $800 to install it and another couple hundred to discharge and recharge the a/c. I told him that $1900 was way too much for a compressor when I was finding them online anywhere from $200-400 dollars. I asked if I had one shipped to them to install if they would do it or not. Reid replied and said that he would not install a compressor that I supplied because his buisness wouldn’t make as much money on it. I could not find one online or anywhere for more than 800 so I have no idea why he suggested a $1900 ac compressor. When I told him it was too much money he immediately said I need to come pick up my car in pieces. I brought it to him in good running condition, paid $111.65 for the diagnostic and he then told me it would cost a couple more hundred dollars to put it back together. I don’t know about you but when I take a car to a shop I expect to pick it up in the same condition, not in pieces. I don’t know how this place has 4 star reviews when they take advantage of people and over charge x10!!! I will never ever take any of my Porsche’s or any of my European vehicles to this shop and I strongly suggest you don’t iether unless you want to be paying a fortune and get robbed!
Sorry you are dissapointed after receiving a complete refund. Please also consider not cursing at the help at a business that answers the phone in the future, generally they are doing their best to help direct customers as best they can. The vehicle was towed in and the driver needed our help to unload it because the emergency brake was failing. Pieces of the bolts holding your compressor literally fell out of the bottom of the car after removing the lower panel. Upon inspection we found someone had been drilling holes in the mounting bracket. Of course you can find lower prices on the internet, our list price is via OEM suppliers. I hope you are able to find someone willing to weld pieces together as you requested, that is not recommended for reliable performance.
