Customer Testimonials for Barnaba Auto Sport
Charley S - 2004 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S Cabriolet
Russell F - 2019 Porsche 911 GT3 RS
I was looking to buy a particular GT3 RS in the Chicago area, despite living out of state. I needed a mechanic I could trust to do a thorough pre-purchase inspection, and was referred to Barnaba. Mark returned my call immediately and was friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. Within a few hours, he had completed the inspection. The report he sent me was intelligent, comprehensive, and clear. It gave me the information I needed to negotiate the right price and buy the car. Mark did an amazing job, and I wouldn’t hesitate to use him again, or to recommend him to others. Five stars.
Greg & Cathy B - 2013 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S
My spouse and I recently purchased a 2013 911 Carrera 4S from Barnaba Autosport, our first Porsche. The car, although calling it that does not do it justice, is in beautiful condition and we are very pleased. The purchasing process was quite enjoyable, low pressure and very informative. The Sales Manager, Ron, took plenty of time to make sure that all of our questions were addressed. It has been great working with him. Our first dealing with the Service Manager, Mark, to install the winter tires, was also very good experience. We highly recommend this unique dealership, with that personal touch, to anyone in the market for a first-class previously owned Porsche!

If you are looking for old fashioned “service “, this place is a return to that era. Most businesses have forgotten that the customer’ s interest comes first, Barnaba practices it every day. They are good at what they do, that are honest and they have a passion for Porsche that you will never get at the “big box” dealers!!

Great service. This shop loves Porsche’s as much as you do. I could spend a afternoon just talking cars with Mark. Will be using again.
Mark B - 2013 Porsche Boxster S
Are you a fanatic about your P car? These guys get it and go the extra mile. Mark and Ron are true Porsche enthusiasts. They can handle anything and their knowledge and passion are obvious. I have worked with other independent shops with great results but theses guys are next level. No reason to take your Porsche anywhere else.
Mark K - 2009 Porsche 911 Carrera S Cabriolet
I recently serviced my 2009 Carerra 911S at Barnaba. The experience was wonderful. Mark G is fantastic. Very knowledgeable and friendly. Compared to my experience at Porsche dealers, Barnaba’s is heads and tails way better. Labor rates are reasonable and I love their passion for their work. FYI they have some beautiful used Porsches if you are in the market.
Craig M - 1997 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet
I never shook off the "Porsche bug" after owning a 924 and 944 back in the 1980's. I started looking at several private party 911's and found some nice ones! But, I didn't have the confidence (or knowledge of vintage 911's) to close the deal. So I found Barnaba Auto Sport online and did an unscheduled visit. I was immediately impressed with Mark and the Barnaba shop! Ron even stopped working on an old vintage restoration to introduce himself and show me around. I wanted a good (sound & dependable) "classic" 911 Cabriolet. Unfortunately..... I had to "choose" between two beautiful 993's on the floor. I drove off with the 97'! Now I'm "stalking" Ron's inventory for my next car. We've all got a lot of options.....private party, dealer or boutique/specialist like Barnaba's. I'm sure I made the right decision with BAS.
Brian G - 2015 Porsche Cayman GTS
I’ve had nothing but great experiences with the Barnaba team. They’ve performed a track day set up for me, done some body work and even taken care of a couple annoying rattles. Their prices are more than fair, their communication is impeccable and their work has been stellar. I’ve even been given a ride back to my home nearby when dropping off my car for work. I learn something new every time I visit—whether it’s history and track knowledge from Ron or inner workings and mechanical know-how from Mark or Damien. Great group of guys and great atmosphere. Thanks!
Lisa F - 2004 Porsche Cayenne
Mark Greco has been my service rep since I bought my Cayenne in 2004! When he relocated to Barnaba Autosport, I took my service needs to him. He always made sure I was happy with EVERYTHING; including the loaner cars while my car was being serviced. Just recently, I needed annual maintenance, which unexpectedly, required a new set of tires! So, in addition to the maintenance and some other minor repairs, he apologized and offered alternatives to spending $6K all at once, or spreading out the repairs and replacements over time. Once we decided on a plan to just get it done, (provided me with a loaner Cayenne), he took his time to make sure everything was done to perfection; even kept the car an extra day, driving it to make sure all was good! After getting my car back on a Friday, unfortunately, on Saturday, I discovered what looked like a transmission fluid leak. Mark gave me his cell # a long time ago, so that I could contact him with any issues. I called him on Saturday; apologizing for bothering him on a weekend, asking if the shop was open and informed him of the leak...long story short on Sunday, he went to the shop, picked up and drove the loaner car to me in Naperville, drove my car back to the shop; they found the issue with the "gasket" for the transmission fluid. He drove my car and monitored it for another day to make sure everything was fixed. It was. And no charge. And my car was cleaned inside and out. Mark is the best service guy ever!! I so appreciate having him taking care of my 15 year old Cayenne!
Brian P - 1977 Porsche 911 Turbo Carrera
Ron and his crew don't disappoint. I purchased a 930 Turbo from him and he also did some service for me on the vehicle. Good man, been in the porsche world for longer than I have been alive.
Joe C - 1987 Porsche 911 Targa
I was looking to get a private party Porsche and needed someone to perform an inspection. My current Porsche dealer wouldn’t perform an inspection and referred me to Barnaba. These guys were incredible! They put my car on the lift, walked me through the underside of the car, pointing out where problems would be if there were any. When the inspection was complete, Mark walked me through their recap sheet that outlined issues with the car and any general suggestions. I definitely had more confidence in making an offer after this inspection. Thank you to the whole team!
Dan P - 2004 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S
Ron, Mark, and the guys at Barnaba are Porsche specialists. I've been using them for years, and I don't know why anyone would take their Porsche anywhere else. You get to talk to the owner, the service manager, and the techs. I'm confident that I always get an honest opinion regarding the condition of my vehicle. Great customer service today as all of my visits in the past.
Mitch O - 2000 Porsche Boxster
Just had some service done at Barnaba; fast, friendly and priced right. I will return as a customer in the future.
Osaretin O - 2011 Porsche Cayenne S
I was very thrilled about the service received from Barnaba Autosport. The frankness of Mark was to the core. Keep the marvelous work going!
Clark W - 2010 Porsche 911 Carrera
This was my first experience having my 911 serviced at Barnaba Autosport. Not only did they do an excellent job, their facility was very clean and expanding in size. What Barnaba Autosport "brings to the table" is many years of service experience. I highly recommend them to those who truly love to maintain their Porsche!
Jan-Peter B - 2002 Porsche 911 Turbo X50
The Barnaba Autosport experience is second-to-none. Very knowledgeable, very technically savvy, very nice and they have fantastic customer service. Ron is a true wealth of knowledge and is a great advisor when it comes to these cars. No need to consider anywhere else with your Porsche needs!!
Shawn B - 1993 Porsche 968 Cabriolet
I just received my 1993 968 back from Barnaba. This is my second round of planned improvements since purchasing last July in a private sale. This round I had: -a audio upgrade done with the speakers -battery replacement -new alternator due to a squealing noise i was getting when ever a large load was placed I can not say how happy I am with the quality of the work and the high level of service from Mark & Ron! Thank you again!
Jon R - 2010 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S
This past weekend I purchased my first Porsche from Ron Barnaba. What a great experience! Ron was always responsive. If I didn't get him on the phone he would call me back right away and he would respond to emails very quickly. He sent me additional pictures of the car when requested. He seems to be a very honest person who loves Porsches and racing. When I arrived at the dealership, I felt very welcome. He showed us around his shop and the new space that will be open soon. I have been looking for a 911 for about 6 months and Ron was by far the best dealership I dealt with. Don't hesitate to do business with him. He even set up my financing and made it super easy to purchase.
Scott C - 2014 Porsche Cayman S
Mark was was a huge help with a couple things that needed to be done on a Cayman S. Outstanding service, honest and reasonable. He gave me good insight on winter storage and future care. Looking out for the clients (and cars) best interest here.
P.J. S - 2011 Porsche Cayenne S
Great Experience. What Porsche dealership could not diagnose, Mark fixed it. My Porsche Cayenne S had humming sound which was a nuisance and irritant. Took my car to the dealer and they kept my car for a few weeks but no solution and would not guarantee on anything: several causes were listed: wheel bearings (which they had changed once in the past), and five other items. Just googled and Barnaba name popped up. Called Barnaba and Mark responded who I knew from the dealership days. The best part, Mark guaranteed he will make sound disappear and suggested change of tyres and alignment. I told that if the sound did not disappear he will have to take new tires back which he agreed. That to me was such a great business proposition and his confidence. The problem is gone and I am a very satisfied customer, will go back anytime.
Freddy S - 2013 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S Cabriolet
Friendly staff and they are experts when it comes to Porsches. Mark was kind enough to spend a few days researching the best option for my sport exhaust. It turned out exactly like he said and I love it! They do have a great inventory of Porsches. In the future, I will definitely visit them first. Also the shop is wonderful and they deliver on time as promised. They also perform a safety inspection while the car is there because they truly care about their customers safety. The location is perfect as they are the only Porsche dealership in the western suburbs. I highly recommend Barnaba Autosport!
Josh B - 2005 Porsche 911 Carrera S Cabriolet
I can't say enough great things about Mark and my experience at Barnaba. These guys really know their stuff and truly care. I will only be bringing my Porsche to these guys from here on out. Your car is in great hands, don't hesitate trusting these guys. Thanks again for everything and see you next time!

I took delivery of my 10th Porsche in 20 years this October. Most people reading this would probably assume I am a Porsche enthusiast. I do feel incredibly blessed to have had the opportunity to drive this fine vehicle for such an extended period of time. But the reason I drive a Porsche is because of Mark Greco. Each and every time my eye has wandered to another nameplate the thought of not having Mark to rely on has brought me back to Porsche. Mark is truly an extraordinary young man. His product knowledge is boundless and he is the consummate professional. Mark has returned my calls or texts on weekends, nights and several times when he was on vacation. In my opinion this takes customer service to the loftiest heights I have ever experienced. To say Mark consistently exceeds my expectations is an understatement. Thank you Mark for everything.
