    To All Porsche Owners

    I recently had an older Porsche stolen and recovered; the car was recovered after having been dragged over dirt and gravel roads, through a sagebrush field and pushed into a rocky depression. The recovered vehicle was missing all electrical parts and gauges, the dash was destroyed and it had been mechanically abused so that even the steering wheel was warped to the extent it could not be used to drive. However, the car was not drivable because the clutch was completely destroyed, and other damages throughout the vehicle were not, at that time, obvious. The convertible top was up, but the controls and other electrical parts were destroyed and/or removed. Alpine Motor Cars, llc, agreed to work on the car.

    Alpine was able to locate and install year-appropriate gauges and parts, particularly where visible, and upgrade parts where possible. In addition to rewiring nearly the entire car, they replaced the clutch, adjusted the transmission, and evaluated/replaced/repaired the engine and oil pressure system as needed. I was informed at every step along the repair process, and in advance about any and all parts needing replacement, for my consent. Alpine uses an excellent body shop when needed.

    When I received the car, it looked much better then when it was stolen. The outside appearance was indicative to the interior where all the gauges, the dash, windshield and panels had been replaced and other things like Porsche floor mats added. The engine fired immediately, and was very responsive to the throttle. Driving my car is now a more enjoyable experience. It is smooth, quiet, responsive and stable on the road.

    I highly recommend Alpine Motor Cars, llc, located in the Coeur d'Alene area, for any and all Porsche services, and they came highly recommended to me by the Spokane Porsche dealership personnel.

    My BMW 740i, BMW X5 and my 1987 Porsche Carrera are all serviced at Alpine Motors.

    I have had mechinaical work done on all 3 cars by Richard and have found him to be the most knowledgable and honest mechanic I have ever been to with my vehicles. But the most important and valuable asset of Alpine Motors is Richard's abililty and willingness to rebuild or repair many parts and not just replacing with a new expensive part without calling me first for approval.

    Richard always calls and confirms the pricing and repairs with me prior to starting the repair work and I have always found his estimate price to be very close to the original estimate.

    I would highly recommend anyone with a BMW or ANY German made car to call Richard at Alpine Motor Cars, prior to having any work done at dealerships or other shops. Bart C.
