What do you need done? While I've never used them, Concours Motorsports in Colorado Springs are a BOE partner. I know that 3R and SCR (the two other big race shops along the Front Range) have both seen Elises and Exiges in the past but don't specialize in them. Ferrari of Denver are a factory dealer and I haven't heard anything bad about them in the last few years although they are very expensive. I took my car there for the oil line recall and they seemed quite competent.

Most of the owners I know along the front range either DIY completely or ship their cars to BOE (by Kansas City) for major work.

It depends what you want done? There are not any shops that specialize in Lotus cars. The lotus dealer has mixed reputation. I plan on doing engine upgrade and take it to BOE in Kansas

Thanks to both who replied. Same information that I have, just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing anything.

I have had work done on my prior Porsche by SCR Performance in Loveland, they were stand up guys and did a great job on alignments and corner balancing for me at a very reasonable price.

Your in CO. BOE is at least closer to you than me. Contact Ross Carlson. He lives in CO and may know somebody.

PMs aren't enabled until you have at least 5 posts as a security measure against scammers. Another post and you should be set!

Yes. I had Phil put on my tune there. Phil was training a Concours Motorsports tech to install tunes. The CM folks were very good to me.

Bonus is that there is a decent place to eat and hang out directly across the alley, and a barbecue bar a block away.
