Brought my vehicle in for routine maintenance. As a customer for about four years, Barnaba Autosport has always provided me with first rate service and they are always happy to entertain questions. As a bonus is fun to wonder into their show room and look at their inventory. Overall I rate Barnaba Autosport as best in class for serving my vehicles.
After forty-some years of hard work and striving to be able to afford a lifelong dream of mine, I finally found myself in a position to purchase that Porsche 911 that I have always wanted since I was 12 years old. I watched as 8 generations of the 911 evolved from the first model that debuted in the same year I was born, to the state of the art iconic sports car it is today. I eventually came to the conclusion that I could get all of the options that I wanted in a modern 911, if I bought a pre-owned vehicle. Oh, ..It was fun at first, browsing through all of the used car websites, checking out the local dealerships, etc. But it quickly became frustrating, as I realized it was becoming difficult to find that special car that checked all the right boxes regarding, performance level, colors, miles on the clock, the vehicle’s history, and most importantly, pricing. So, I thought to myself, if I have waited this long, I can surely wait a little longer and be patient with finding the right car for me. After a few weeks of relentless searching, I came across a beautiful 2012 991 Carrera S on a website from Barnaba Autosport, which is located a few miles west of Chicago. Everything about the car looked great on paper and checked all the boxes for me. Although I was a little apprehensive with purchasing my dream car from a dealer that was located over 350 miles away from me, I must say that I was quickly set at ease after reading and watching the video on their website. This obviously is a professional family of knowledgeable, and experienced individuals that have a passion for Porsches. So, I decided to call Barnaba Autosports and I spoke with Chris Barnaba. Chris was very pleasant and answered all of my questions regarding the car and its history. He also sent me a link to a detailed video walk-around of the car. Chris was very helpful and took the time to speak with me on a few subsequent phone conversations over the next day or two. After my decision to move forward with the purchase, I called Chris to let him know that I needed to schedule a flight to Chicago and get my finances in order to complete the transaction. He assured me that he would not sell the car and would hold onto it until I booked a flight and flew out to see it. Once I arrived in Chicago, I arranged an Uber ride to Barnaba Autosports, which is approximately 36 miles from O’Hare International Airport. Chris was already waiting for me and had everything ready to go. First order of business was meeting the car in person for the first time. It was everything Chris relayed to me, and more. Chris accompanied me for a quick test drive and pointed out the features of the car and provided welcome tips for ownership along the way. After spending some time with the car, we went back inside to sign the paperwork and close the deal. Once inside, I met Ron Barnaba (Owner, and father of Chris). Mr. Barnaba sat down with Chris and I and had a pleasant conversation about Porsche cars for a while. They made me feel at home and very comfortable with my decision to buy this car from Barnaba. They meticulously inspected the vehicle, and provided all the up-to-date maintenance, as well as a fine detailing. To wrap things up, before I drove away in my dream car, Chris assisted in setting up my cell phone and navigation system for my trip. A few quick pictures and I was off, with confidence that the car was well prepared and ready for my journey home. I had an awesome experience with purchasing my first Porsche with the Barnaba family and would highly recommend future Porsche owners to check them out. You won’t be disappointed. Thank You Ron & Chris, for providing this new Porsche owner a memorable and happy experience.
I have known Mark since 2009 and he is the most trustworthy car specialist I have come across. Honest guy and high quality work. I appreciate this business relationship very much. I have serviced multiple Porsche models with him, regardless of model or price I would service anything with Mark and Barnaba. Addition in January 2021- as usual Marks work is stupendous. I had sport suspension installed on a 991.2 and the car has been transformed. Alignment, handling, turn in, ride height, and chassis response is what it should have been from the beginning. Barnaba did an excellent job. Mark is the best Porsche expert I have met- his quotes and work are always spot on. I look forward to more upgrades in the future.
I am so glad to have found Barnaba Autosport. Mark has serviced my 2009 Cayenne for years and now services my new Panamera too. He always has been honest and fair. His customer service is always above and beyond.
A PCA member pointed me to BarnabaAutosport when I asked for a Porsche specialist to mend a Boxster S with a failed IMS bearing. Mark provided a detailed cost estimate for a short block replacement and stuck to it. Any additional work was detailed and agreed to in advance. Communication was prompt and friendly. We are about 4-1/2 hours from their shop but it was well worth the drive. The added benefit of the distance was 4-1/2 hours driving this wonderful Porsche.
Highly recommended!!! The service I receive from Barnaba on my 2016 911 4S is always exceeds my expectations. I'm the type of guy when I get time away from work I want to get in the car and drive it. They prepare the car for track days and autocross, it always runs flawlessly. Mark educates me in everything Porsche and knows every detail of my car. My Porsche experience is greater than I could have imagined knowing Mark at Barnaba will always have my car in perfect condition. I don't write reviews but I can enthusiastically recommend Mark and Ron at Barnaba without hesitation. Do yourself a favor and give them an opportunity, you will not be disappointed.
I was unsure of the reliability of my 2001 Boxster S because of its Intermediate shaft bearing. Frankly the reliability uncertainty limited my travel to the Midwest. I researched the expense of having the bearing replaced and engine completely made "right". Logistics for getting this done would be complicated and quotes were quite high. Fortunately I asked for a local referral and was referred to Barnaba. I met Mark Greco, he listened to my concerns, and scheduled a Porsche tech to pull the trans to gain access to the ISB. It was badly worn to the point of failure. I was able to inspect the bearing and talk with the technician who would service my car. He answered my questions. Mark's approach to the problem was perfect. He worked up a plan including a new short block, sourced from Germany, refurbishing the heads locally. The price was less than what I had been quoted to refurbish my engine. Mark listened to my long term concerns and I decided on replacing some peripheral items that would be easier to replace while the engine was on the bench. The final invoice was consistent the detailed quote. I am a fan of Barnaba AutoSport , Mark and his crew earned my approval. Thanks Barnaba!
I was referred to Barnaba from a fellow Porsche owner. Best referral ever! The 2-year service for my 2019 Carrera T was quick and less costly than going to a dealer. The visit resulted in an oil change and multipoint inspection that exposed some beat up rear tires which they personally showed me while the car was still in the air. What a great visit! Quick, transparent & engaging with reasonable pricing - not an everyday occurrence. I quickly trusted Barnaba as they delivered on their reputation. Since I already had a second visit scheduled for the new tires, I had Mark and his team flush my brakes with RBF and install a performance tune for my engine. WOW! The explosive torque and horsepower has made me a little afraid to take one hand off the wheel. She gets angry fast! Mark set my exceptions every step of the way and delivered on everything promised even with a little surprise and delight - a shiny detailed car when I came to pick it up. Love these guys!
Barnaba Autosport deserves more than 5 stars. Bar none, the best car buying experience I have ever had. From my first call with Chris I could tell the experience of buying a Porsche from Barnaba would not be a typical "used car buying experience". He was very patient, answered all of my questions, and even educated on me on the differences between several different models. When I flew in to pick up the car, Chris had us in and out without wasting any time. The car was even better than pictured and described. Chris even called me several days after the purchase to check in and see how everything was with the car. 5 stars aren't enough for Barnaba Autosport and I already can't wait to buy my next Porsche from them!
For anyone who has a 911, this is the absolute best place around Chicago to go. A different local Porsche new car dealership completely mis-diagnosed my cars' problems, so I turned to Barnaba Autosport for a second opinion. I cannot tell you how much better it was to deal with Barnaba and specifically Mark Greco. Mark and the team completely went above and beyond the call for me. They offered to pick up my vehicle from the Porsche Dealership and ship it out to their shop (saving me a lot of time and hassle). Mark was kind, thoughtful and provided the perfect amount of guidance and knowledge to help get my vehicle back to where it should be. They were patient, dealt with all my questions, were timely and responsive and worked out a custom plan for my vehicles needs. They literally have the best customer service and I can tell you that I will be a customer for life. Do not hesitate to go to Barnaba Autosport, ask for Mark, you'll have a great experience!
I wish that I can give you 10 stars. After 6 years and couple different specialized porsche mechanic shop ,I got introduced to Barnaba Autosport . I thought that my car will never be fixed. But I was wrong ,it took some time ,Ron and Mark have promised me first day that they will not give up on my car and just to be patient. In the end it was worth it. I was so hopeless,because no one before was able to find the problem ,but it was worth waiting on the end . My 1980 Targa for first time ,after 6 years works perfect . If you have 911 I’m sure that this is the best place to go . Thank you guys again for not giving up on my car .
Having wanted a 911 since my youth, this was a once in a life opportunity to purchase the car I had dreamed about for decades. I spent a considerable amount of time researching the options throughout the country and found one at Barnaba that met what I was looking for. After reading the rave reviews online I inquired late on a Friday evening. Chris responded immediately and answered all of my initial questions. Being from out of state, we FaceTime the following week to visually inspect the car. Chris was very thorough and again answered all of my questions. We flew into Chicago to take delivery and the car was as advertised upon inspection. There were a couple of items we noticed and his team took care of them immediately. It was very clear to my wife and I that the entire Barnaba team are very passionate stewards of the Porsche brand. This was a great experience and I still haven’t stop smiling since we drove away. You can purchase with complete confidence at Barnaba.
Fantastic establishment. Mark in service is an extremely pleasant individual to work with. They keep you posted on all aspects of the repair process, always making sure you understand. They worked with my extended warranty company very well, making sure to get the exact replacement parts I needed-not just what the warranty company wanted to use to save money. You just feel like they take care of your car like it was their own. I highly recommend this shop!
I've had my Cayman S serviced at Barnaba the last few years. I always felt I was getting the straight story from Mark. When the CPO was up, I was shopping for maintenance insurance. Mark described some options and his experience. I ended up purchasing a package thru them at a cost lower than the dealer was offering (of course ). Recently the engine needed fairly significant repair; I only paid the $250 deductible. Very happy with the whole experience.
I recently bought a Porsche from them. It has been a dream of mine to own a 911 since I was a kid. They were FANTASTIC and accommodating. I live in Nashville TN and the communication and honesty I experienced with Chris was unmatched. I HIGHLY recommend if you are looking for ANY Porsche, give them serious consideration. Somewhere inside of me there a child smiling and giggling from ear to ear. Thank you Barnaba for helping me fulfill a childhood dream.
I brought my ‘06 Cayenne Turbo S in for a complete brake job. One HUGE benefit (for a car guy) was that I could actually see/watch them work on my vehicle. So, the uneasy feeling of “what’s behind the curtain” that you can get at a typical dealer was completely gone. My experience with Mark Greco (Service Director) was one of full and fair disclosure at all times. Mark came and sat down with me for a few moments throughout the process and genuinely wanted to know more about the vehicle and what other maintenance had been done in the past. I was thoroughly impressed by this as Mark genuinely cared about how he could help in any other ways. I believe that the pricing was fair and that the service was customized to my Cayenne. If you are in need of a customized, honest and fair service experience for your Porsche, you should most certainly consider Barnaba! I will continue to drive to Batavia from the Midway Airport area to service my Cayenne going forward. Great experience overall!
I bought a 1999 Carrera with Factory Aero Kit from Chris at Barnaba and I could not be happier! Given that I was a couple thousand miles away, I had to rely solely on phone discussions with Chris. He was generous with his time and forthcoming and timely with all information. He disclosed everything I needed to know about, and communicated wonderfully through the process. The car had sold to someone else but Chris called me when it didn't complete. Chris took time on a day off to make sure the car got on transport, and the car arrived in even better condition than advertised. Barnaba did all the right maintenance before the sale, so I'm ready to go enjoy the car. I would not hesitate to do business with Barnaba again, and that means a lot to me being out here in CA, unable to visit the physical dealership. Title and papers arrived in a day via UPS and the car was in my garage in CA within 5 days. Thanks, Chris!
I purchased a used 2006 Porsche Cayman S from Barnaba Autosport. I had been inquiring about the car long distance, as I had seen it on the Barnaba Autosport website. Chris Barnaba and I spoke numerous times extensively about the car, and he was able to answer every question that I had before I flew to Chicago to see the car in person. Barnaba Autosport did an awesome job preparing this Cayman S for purchase. The car is immaculate, inside and out. The Cayman runs perfectly. Chris presented me with a detailed maintenance and service report listing all of the service that Barnaba performed before listing the car for sale. Both Chris and Ron Barnaba drove the car for a week to check it out thoroughly before listing it for sale. The pre-sale service that was performed insured that I could drive away knowing that I wouldn't have to anything to this car for a long time. I am very pleased with my purchase. I would recommend Barnaba Autosport to anyone interested in buying a pre-owned Porsche.
