  • This is by far the best place to bring your German car. I have brought my car to PPI twice so far and have been very satisfied with the job they did. It is clearly explained what options are available for cost effectiveness and high quality. You won't be disappointed with the work here.

  • I recently read a great article in a local news publication, Paradise News, about Tom Potter's Shop, My 2005 AMG was coming due for a Schedule B service along with additional system fluids, as a frugal buyer and long time Crown customer I wanted to test the waters for this standard service. Price wise, Tom's shop was clearly the best choice, what I came to find out was the service additionally topped any of the competition. In fact it was so good I opted to replace the gas struts for my soft top partition as well, due to the price being about the same as if I did it myself. I will be a client going forward based on Tom's dedication and attention to detail. Do yourself a favor and make a call to Potter's Precision for a refreshing service experience.

  • We were extremely happy with the courteous service and fee that was provided by Potter's Precision Imports. My husband accidentally jammed his I pod underneath the cover of the cup holders. He contacted 2 other dealerships and they quoted him double the price to retrieve the I pod. I would highly recommend this company, not only for their courteous and professional service, but also for very fair fees for services rendered.

    After having a bad experience with a major BMW dealership, I was introduced to PPI. I was immediately impressed with cleanliness of the shop. I have never been to a shop where you where formally introduced to the mechanic who would be working on my vehicle. PPI was able to troubleshoot and fix my vehicle, fast and at a responsible price. I will be taking my car to Tom and his crew at PPI from now on.
