Portland, OR INDEPENDENT lotus Shops

Hello,
I just recently moved to Portland, and I'm looking to get recommendations for local shops that you guys trust in servicing your Lotus. Thanks for the help!

I have always heard mention of Ron Tonkin, but that's all, never used them myself. You might give Radium a call, they're local to you, and may have ideas. Heck, they can put in a turbo if you like!

I talked to the owner of this shop last year. They were going to do a PPI for me, but I decided to pass on the car.

AR Auto Services

They got excellent reviews and the owner seemed to know Elises.

No 1st hand experience though.

05 Elise, ST, sports, touring, hardtop, DBA 4000 slotted discs, Ferodo DS2500 pads, Sector 111 gpan3, EP Tuning Quickrack, Pro Alloy rad, DS brace, HnT pad, front and rear tow hooks, CG lock, ORE double cup holder (caffeine for track); '86 911 Targa (sold); '68 MGB (being restored)

First, Ron Tonkin is not an independant, they are the Lotus dealer out of Wilsonville.
Second Radium sells parts and is not a shop, but they sell great parts, I have many on my car :-)
Third, Call AR Auto, nobody better. Eddie and his crew take care of all my cars and he really knows the Lotus Marque.

2005 Lotus Elise - Laser Blue - SOLD
2005 Lamborghini Gallardo - Weekend Car
2010 Ferrari California
2016 BMW X5M - Wifemobile
2014 Ram 1500 Limited - Tow Vehicle
