Sorry I missed this....

Yes - it was at Michelin with the Carolinas Porsche Club. Great group to run AutoX with, since there's usually <50 cars total.

Next is SCCA at zMax on 9/23.

Black Forest Industries seems to be a popular shop in Cary... Can anyone vouch for their work?

Their prices aren't any cheaper than going to the dealer. I've called for quotes, but never had work done. I'm sure they do a fine job.

A 10K maintenance is only an oil change and tire rotation. The dogbone takes 10 minutes to install, and a putting a downpipe in is super easy. Do you have access to jack stands? Doing these things yourself will save you hundreds of dollars.

BFI is an APR dealer so you could get the tune loaded there. Apex tuning in Apex,NC is a Unitronic dealer. I personally prefer Apex Tuning over BFI.

Honestly, don't have access to jack stands or the tools/skills to do it myself.

I do work on the side as well, but I'm three hours from BFI so CRX is most likely closer than I am
