I contacted our local dealer a week ago and not heard back from their service department. Had car serviced there a while back so this is not new. Open to other places if you guys can recommend some. Thanks.

The local dealer's service department moved to the Maserati facility a few weeks ago, so it's possible the phone number changed. I have had good luck with them for Lotus and Aston service. Other local ships familiar with the Elise and Exige (and maybe other models) are Flamingo Automotive on Guadalupe and SoulSpeed in South Austin.

So in order from cheapest to most expensive (and quality roughly matches) it's flamingo, SoulSpeed and MooreSpeed. There is also the option of John Long at auto-spec or Harris hill. He is hit and miss though and it depends what you need done.

Thank you for the info guys....Familiar with SoulSpeed and MooreSpeed but their location is a PITA to get to from where I live. But beggars cannot be choosers.

Hi.

I have no idea what the experience will be at the Maserati facility, but SoulSpeed is worth the drive from Cedar Park to South Austin. Just my 2 cents.

I agree that Collin at Soulspeed is a great guy to service your car. His business operates on auto-pilot, however, with e-mails and phone calls taking a week or two to be returned. If you have patience and time, I recommend him.

That said, I just contacted Soulspeed to replace my valve train and install a new cam shaft, and Collin's response was, "We don't open engines." Now to find someone who does. :( I'm guessing that will need to be Moorespeed.
