At Dobson Stuttgart we consider performing regular servicing intervals on your Porsche one of our primary objectives. With all Porsche & Bosch specialty tools, we follow factory guidelines. Nothing is overlooked during these routine visits. Only at Dobson Stuttgart, can a performance problem be correctly diagnosed on our Porsche PIWIS testers. Far too often issues are not correctly diagnosed as almost no other independent repair facilities have factory testers, despite claims. Whether it is a major service or scheduled factory maintenance, Dobson Stuttgart has factory software and tools to complete the job in a timely and cost effective manner. Fast, professional, turn-key service is a hallmark of Dobson Stuttgart.
Scheduled Factory Maintenance @ 10K, 20K, 30K, 40K, 50K,60K and beyond are fully warranted and are even more comprehensive than Porsche specifies. All of our service work reports to Carfax to help your not only keep track of service records digitally for yourself, but help at the time you're ready to move onto your next car with enhanced resale value.
Dealers and most independent shops rarely possess the skills, experience, and facility to perform a proper OEM overhaul of your complicated Porsche engine or transaxle. Our dedicated engine builders are trained for factory-level quality and consistency remains as the industry standard. Our pricing structure for overhauls is honest and competitive, due to our streamline methods that it leaves dealers as much as 30% higher at the end of the job. Over 23 years we have overhauled literally thousands of Porsche drivetrains; from 4 cylinder boxer thru 4 valve water cooled V types. We now have skilled engine builders on standby specifically for either air-cooled or water-cooled engines and a Porsche-specialist for gearbox overhauls as well. We offer services for ALL Porsche years and models.
Oil/Filter Change- We pride ourselves on using Motul or Liqui-Moly full synthetic oil as per Porsche recommendation - with modern cars requiring A40 or C30 Porsche certified oil. For Classic air cooled Porsche's we utilize Motul or Liqui-Moly high performance classic 20w50 high zinc conventional oil.
