European Auto Repair | Porsche Repair Testimonials
When you buy your dream car you don't dream about blowing the engine. However sometimes it happens. Then you are stuck with some very serious choices to make. You can buy a used engine and roll the dice again and if you have a background of building engines and doing mechanic work you can try and swap it your self. You can buy the used engine and get a friend of a buddy that is great with cars to do it at a discounted price ignoring the fact that he doesn't even realize that the entire tail section of your 911 has to come off to get started. You can spend a ton of money get a new factory Porsche engine and have a dealer install it which to be honest that could easily hit the $25-30,000 dollar mark or you do as I did and start looking for a shop that can rebuild you dream car's engine and bring it back to life. Now you start shifting through the BS to check do they walk the walk better than they talk the talk. I looked at a lot of shops and did research and if you read some of the stories that you find about Robert Berry you might be scared away or your friends say did you read about this. We I did read those stories and did anyone besides me (talking about the horror story everybody brings up about the antique Mercedes benz) this Robert had a couple of opportunities to just say hey this guy is a pain in my ass and just give him his car back in buckets and leave it he'll the guy got a judge and police and had Robert spend time in jail. Robert could have taken the easy way out and gave him a basket case which anyone who has ever build a car knows is a scary thought because if you didn't take it apart it's hard to know if it will go back together. So what I saw in Robert was I will get your car done and it will get done right and when you get it back it will be right. He takes pride in his work. He's like an artist like Michael Angelo how would say it's done only when he was happy with his work and was ready to walk away. Now don't think my review is all sunshine and rainbows I was there the day Robert finished the Ferrari that took over a year but remember guys this these cars are not fords, chevy's Honda's or any other mass production car that you just run to O'rileys or some other chain parts house and walk in and there shelves of parts made cheap and grab a kit and go home and build. These are performance cars built to hit road and eat pavement at a pace that can get you a ticket in lass than 6 seconds. So my 996 the block goes one direction the heads go another and when the block came back had an issue and it went back. This all takes time your shop send shipping parts to another shop which has to schedule the work do it and send it back then your shop has to schedule time to try assembly again etc. it's a dance which can seem like goes on forever but you have to keep in mind I dreamed of having this car since I was 12 so to get it back and have the engine run really strong and have Robert give a warranty on the engine but only if I drive the car like a Porsche and not well anything else which means my car gets up to and over 100 if I get the brief chance I push down on the accelerator and let that dog eat road and know my engine is built to take it. Like Alexander Porsche said of his cars " my cars are built to be driven not polished" well I polish mine too. Robert it was a trip I would take again knowing what I would get in the end.
