Our experience with Barnaba Autosports was incredible! Dealing with Chris was like dealing with a friend. Our car is beautiful and they are top notch! There is no reason to go anywhere else!

I was very interested in acquiring a Porsche 968 that was for sale in the Chicago area. I was referred to Mark Greco at Barnaba Autosport to conduct a PPI and help me diligence the car. Mark was extremely helpful and obviously extremely knowledgeable about Porsches. He spent a great deal of time on the phone with me answering my questions and areas of concern, and took a look at cosmetic issues, and carefully reviewed service records, all prior to beginning the mechanical work of the PPI. When issues of concern immediately became apparent, I decided to pass on the car because of red flags. I cannot recommend Mark highly enough. Very knowledgeable and a great guy. 5+ stars!!!

Mark was extremely collaborative in helping me pass my first emission test since I bought my 2003 996. He went so far as to even drive to the AirTeam location to ensure it would pass. Great Service, very good results, and my car needs a few more things to address, we defined a prioritization and only tackled the most pressing issues. The rest I will absolutely ask Mark and the guys at Barnaba to tackle.2023 update: Mark and the Barnaba team have stepped up yet again. I had the clutch, flywheel and pressure plate replaced as they were worn out. This despite being replaced at 40,000 miles by another shop. Barnaba were able to diagnose the previously substandard work and parts installed and replace them with the proper parts that actually work and fit my car.While we were in there Mark advised that I should replace the notorious IMS bearing with the “solution”. This was completed on time and on budget.The car is in fabulous shape now, better than ever and I now drive the car with less stress and more enjoyment.2024 update: Mark has declared that the car runs extremely well, and that I can relax now. I may have bought the wrong car, but Barnaba has turned it into the right car. Probably the best 996 Cabriolet in the Midwest. Completely stock now, ‘cept for the slightly upgraded shocks installed (which are the B6 Bilsteins IYKYK).

I cannot say enough good things about buying a vintage Porsche from the Barnabas. The car was presented 100% as advertised, prepared meticulously and the transaction was seamless.Very pleased!

I cannot speak more highly of Banaba Autosport. Other shops were afraid to take on my 911 992 project and Banaba was not. They approached it with a can-do attitude and willingness to learn and experiment right along side me. Thanks Mark and Eric for making it happen!

Mark and his team took very good care of my 2018 Porsche Macan while it was at the shop for a yearly check-up. The news was good except for a need for new tires. Mark suggested the brand and it drives like a new car. Thank-you everyone at Barnaba.No need to hesitate, just go there.

One of the best experiences I've ever had with car repairs. Mark was absolutely phenomenal.This was not an inexpensive job, but he made it feel painless.I will bring my car the 1-1/2 to 2 hours of time it takes to get to them any time it needs work. IT'S DEFINITELY WORTH IT!

Highly recommend! I had a fantastic experience with Mark in the service department at Barnaba Autosport. They completed a pre-purchase inspection on a 2007 Boxster S for me in a very timely manner, even during a week of lousy winter weather! Very communicative, and patient with all of my questions. He made sure to tell me that our relationship didn't end at the report, but that they would be there with support throughout my Porsche ownership, should I decide to purchase the car. Which I did. :> Thanks so much to Mark and his crew, they were a large part of what made me feel comfortable (as comfortable as one can be in buying a 17-year-old Porsche!) in this purchase.

I have been meaning to write a review for the incredible experience I had working with Mark and the team at Barnaba for quite some time now but only just got around to doing so.Last year I had them perform a PPI of a 2006 Carrera S that I was looking to purchase. I reached out with a last minute request for them to perform a PPI before I was slated to arrive in Chicago for a work trip the following week (ideally I was hoping to have the results before leaving so I knew whether or not to come prepared to buy!).Needless to say, Barnaba came through and performed the PPI in record time and provided me a TON of fantastic information that gave me an in depth understanding of the true condition of the vehicle including a few items that they caught that would have potentially been a deal breaker for me if I wasn’t able to negotiate the purchase price with the seller related to those issues.I’d also like to note that Mark Greco took the time to jump on a call with me and run through the full PPI report in detail and answer any questions I had about the items that were noted.In the end, I made the leap and purchased the vehicle, and Barnaba was even able to address the identified issues after my purchase before helping to organize shipping to my house in NY. I can’t thank Mark, Jake and the rest of the team enough for helping me get one of my dream cars!

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!!

In 1979 I was 12 years old. I have no idea how an off the showroom floor 1979 Porsche 911 felt to drive. I do know how my 44 year old 911 drove prior to the engine and transmission rebuild by you guys. This is a totally different beast! All I can say is wow! My 915 gearbox is now unbelievably smooth and accurate, no missing a shift thanks to the Wevo gate shift kit out back. The motor (3.0 enlarged to a 3.2) pulls hard on acceleration and the sound of the SSI’s and GT3 style exhaust is intoxicating. Now when I put it away for the night, I can’t stop thinking about driving it again. I love this car more than ever. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Barnaba Autosport recently completed some service work on my Boxster Spyder. There was a lot of unanticipated trouble with a third party, which Barnaba handled on my behalf despite the many hours required to solve the issue. They are also enthusiasts and shared my excitement over the modifications they performed

I always appreciate the helpful advice and prompt attention of Mark at Barnaba Autosport. Porches are never cheap to service, the 911 4s is not an exception when it's my daily driver, but these guys are better than competitive with the dealer network where you are just another license plate.

The Barnaba team is a class act all the way around. I had the most enjoyable and pleasant buying experience when I got my 2005 911. It felt like doing business with a good friend, and has continued to feel that way with the occasional service I have them do. This is a genuine family business and they make you feel like "one of the guys" and care about your experience. I will continue to work with them for the foreseeable future for my current Porsche and any others I may get.

I can’t say enough about Barnaba. Mark spent a lot of time with me discussing each detail about my car. This was a very different experience than going to the dealerships, all in a good way. I found my new go to for Porsche service or repair.I also found it great that they will help with suggestions if you are a DIY’er. I enjoy working on my car and these guys don’t mind if you do something yourself unlike the dealerships.

Exceptional Service and Expertise at Barnaba Autosport in Batavia, ILI recently had the pleasure of taking my Porsche 911 to Barnaba Autosport in Batavia, IL, and I couldn't be more impressed with the exceptional service and expertise I experienced there. This family-owned business, supported by a tight-knit group of long-time employees, is the epitome of professionalism and dedication.From the moment I called for quotes, Mark and the team at Barnaba Autosport were nothing but honest, transparent, and fair. They offered the most competitive prices among the four places I contacted, and their customer service was unparalleled. They even went above and beyond to help me get to Batavia from the city to pick up my vehicle.When I collected my Porsche, it had been meticulously washed and ran better than the day I bought it. I was initially recommended to Barnaba Autosport by a friend who is an avid Porsche collector, and he assured me that they are the go-to destination for Porsche owners in the Chicagoland area. Now, I can wholeheartedly agree and attest to their top-notch work and fair pricing.I want to extend my sincerest thanks to the team at Barnaba Autosport for their outstanding service. They have undoubtedly gained a loyal customer for life. If you own a Porsche and live in the Chicagoland area, I highly recommend entrusting your vehicle to the experts at Barnaba Autosport – you won't be disappointed! (If you get a chance make sure you ask Mark for a tour - it’s a mini Porsche museum esp. in the restoration area)

It was such a pleasant experience to buy a vehicle from Chris and the folks at Barnaba. From the first call right to post delivery follow ups, Chris has been super responsive, helpful and patient for this first time Porsche owner. The car was prepped with such great detail that it looked and ran better than I could have asked for. I'd highly recommend them and would gladly buy from them again in the future!

Awesome collection of air-cooled Porsche examples for sale, restoration and repair. The facility is the summation the best factory-trained technicians lead by the owner, who himself was a factory trained Porsche technician of 53 years and a 24 and 12-hour endurance racing champion.

Not only was this my first remote online only auto buying experience, it was hands down the BEST auto purchasing experience ever, in over 40 car purchases.With enthusiasm, patience and no hesitation, Chris and team went above and beyond to provide me with everything I needed to allow me to make an informed decision, and I asked for a lot.The end result was a perfectly sorted georgious dream car delivered to my door with my expectations exceeded on every level.I will be back for my next P car and will also highly recommend Barnaba to anyone looking to buy a Porsche.

Was looking for a Porsche service center to do an alignment on my Macan GTS. Heard a lot of good talk about BARNABA Autosport. So gave them a call. Spoke to Mark, set up an apt, and went on in. Mark had a great personality, extremely knowledgeable, and an absolute Porsche enthusiast. My alignment took a bit longer than an hour (very nice), but time flew talking with Mark and checking out their amazing sales floor. Definitely a great shop for any of your Porsche needs. They have a client in me.

I think I found my shop! This place takes the best from the dealership experience (professional, on-time) and that talent you get (if you're lucky) from a masterful independent Porsche technician and combines that to give you exactly what you need: A car that drives right and the confidence you get from knowing that the right people worked on it. I was in search of a Porsche tech for nearly a year. A friend referred me to Barnaba Autosport and I called and spoke to Mark in their service department. I own a 997.2 4S and was convinced I needed all sorts of maintenance as part of a service interval. Mind you, I called two other indie shops and got quotes before speaking to Mark at Barnaba. Mark advised that I didn't need all of those things and took his time to explain to me why. I was still a bit skeptical, so I did a bit of research and everything he advised was exactly right. I took my car to Barnaba, they gave it a thorough inspection, I gave the go-ahead on a few more items and made a plan for the rest. Fantastic customer service and an overall pleasurable experience, I highly recommend.

This was my first time visiting Barnaba Autosport. With the long and extensive history that the Barnaba Team has with everything Porsche I felt confident my Macan would be in very good hands. After dropping my car off I left feeling that not only was my car in very good hands, but I, the car owner, was in great hands.Thank you, Mark, for making me feel genuinely welcomed and cared about.Juan

I wanted to share my experiences over the last 6 months with Barnaba and John Greco servicing my 2015 981 GTS. This is my first Porsche and I am ecstatic about it. Barnaba is the only servicer that has touched my car since I’ve owned it. They did a purchase inspection (the GTS was/is in pristine condition), detail, minor door dent repair, tires, tune, V1 hardwire install, and more. Barnaba and John have been the best car service experience I’ve had in years. John has been great and his team, equally great...friendly, knowledgeable, and accommodating on dates and times for drop offs and pickups. John will take a text or call for consult and plans just about any time, any day. I plan to only work with John and Barnaba for years (and hopefully many more Porsches).

Better experience than at any Porsche dealership or independent operator I’ve been to. Chris offered an unsolicited guided tour of the operation, and Mark patiently answered all questions and explained what procedure and servIce my vehicle needed. Seeing Porsche legend Ron Barnaba actively interacting around the complex was reassuring. Not many places make you feel as welcome or valued and mine is NOT a high end vehicle relative to their incredible inventory. I’ll be getting all of my service done here on my RS 60 Spyder and when I’m in the market for another Porsche, Barnaba is where I’ll begin.

10/24/2020: I had a great experience working with Mark at Barnaba. He was by far the most professional person I talked to with a great price. I was under a tight schedule and Mark and his team delivered on time with quality work I knew I could trust. The shop was clean and well organized, I knew my car was in great hands. I will definitely be back next time I need work! Thanks again Mark, Ron and Barnaba team!12/6/2022 Update: Since my original review, I have brought my car back to Barnaba for two additional repairs. Both repairs ended up being more complex than expected and Mark was extremely reasonable and fair when determining my bill. Many other shops would have taken advantage of the situation, the way Mark handled it shows what type of shop he runs and what the Barnaba brand represents. I am thankful to have a honest shop in the area I can trust.

I have been in the 911 market for years and have spoken to many dealers and shops. Chris Barnaba is simply one of the best out there - knowledgeable, honest and available to answer any / all questions. I was a remote buyer and the live video walkthrough was thorough and he answered all my questions. Chris’ customer service and attention to detail before, during and after the sale is unparalleled. The Barnaba Autosport facility is top notch and beyond what I expected - very active maintenance/service and 911 restoration shop with various generations available for sale. Awesome family history explains “the why” they are so passionate and great at what they do.

After being disappointed with the service from other Porsche dealers, I bought my Macan GTS to Barnaba Autosport and am I glad I did. My car runs better now than when it was first purchased; it's like getting a new car. I highly recommend Barnaba Autosport for your next car service.

I have had Barnaba do a LOT to both my 991 Carerra and 958 Cayenne, from upgrades like the PSE added to the 991, to PDR, to fixing body damage on the 958, to brake upgrades on the 991, front diff on the 958...you name it.It seems that whatever you need, they can get it done. And even though they are always busy, turnaround times are quite quick!

Mark Greco and the team at Barnaba are best in class for all things Porsche! They’ve treat my 993 like their own and always provide accurate and insightful info about my car. It’s great having a local (Porsche only) group local here in the Fox Valley. If you need help with service, sourcing a vehicle or part or just wanna talk cars give them a ring (or better yet stop in and see their shop and all the cars!)

People called Walter Payton "Sweetness". Well, they've never driven a Cayman S, especially one that has been given a TLC treatment at Barnaba's. Ok, kinda sappy. But the thing is these guys are great. They know Porsches inside and out, they're courteous, they're timely, and when your car coms out of their shop, it's ready to run the twisties. They've got my business as long as I can get my 70+ year old body in and out of my P-cars.

The only downside to having your Porsche serviced at Barnaba is that you want to drive home with several more. Sitting in their customer lounge is like sitting in a dream garage. You’re surrounded by classic 911’s, 924’s, 993’s and other 9-somethings from every decade in various stages of restoration to being ready to go to their new owner. It’s impossible not to take pictures (I’ll post a few here). But while you’re dreaming of your next Porsche, Mark and his team do a fantastic job of taking care of the one you have. I have a 2017 Macan S which I now bring in for all scheduled maintenance. But what really made me a fan is that they helped diagnose and resolve a drivetrain issue that the dealership couldn’t pinpoint and wanted to replace the entire transmission. What could’ve been a major costly repair turned out to be a faulty valve, and Barnaba saved me enough to start my own “Next Porsche Fund.” I am so glad I found these guys. And I can’t say enough about how friendly they are and how honest they are about the work that actually needs to be done. They will sit down with you, pull out an engine diagram, and really help you understand your car. You can even hang out and watch your car while it’s being serviced. It’s also reassuring to know that both Mark and his lead technician both came from the dealership where I purchased mine. Suffice it to say, they know Porsche’s better than anyone. But back to their showroom… I actually find myself looking forward to my next service visits just so I can check out the latest inventory. It’s an ever-evolving Porsche museum!

This was my first time servicing a Porsche with Mark and Ron. I’m a pretty fussy and particular person, so I’m always at least a little apprehensive when I hand-off a project. The communication and outcome vastly exceeded all expectations. I will not hesitate to service my 911 with them again.

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.SincerelyRon Klein

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!

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.

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 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 .

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!

Purchased a 2010 911 about a month ago and can’t say enough about how great this dealership is. I wouldn’t want to buy a Porsche from any other dealership. Big thanks to Chris for making the purchase of my first Porsche an amazing experience!

There is a reason why this place is 5/5! I can unequivocally confirm my experience is also 5/5..It's hard finding a service team or dealer in today's world that is like this! If you have a Porsche don't take it anywhere else.. There are plenty of Porsche dealers/services here in Downtown Chicago, but I specifically drove an hour away to come here because of their amazing team!Mark the service manager is Professional and has so much valuable experience and knowledge.. He is amazing to talk to about Porsche cars, and just in life in general!I came here to do a full inspection on a used Porsche 911 Carrera S Cab that I recently bought out of state for them to check! They provided and gave me the list of items and things that need to be repaired and the list of priorities to be completed. I will be getting the list of items knocked out next year after the holidays.You can tell they take serious pride and love in what they do! If you have a Porsche just bring it here!! You will be in great hands!

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!

We were recent out of state purchasers of a 2007 Cayman S from Barnaba. They car was better than represented. The entire experience was easy. The car was detailed extremely well & runs great. They took all the time I needed to answer our questions and make us comfortable with all of the features of the car. Chris & Ron were professional, knowledgeable & exceeded our expectations. We would highly recommend Barnaba to anyone i the market for a used Porsche.

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 2012 911 Carrera from Barnaba last week. I live in Atlanta and used the internet for a national search of cars. I wanted a 997.2 for a fair price and found one such car at Barnaba Autosport. After talking to several sellers of cars around the country, at the end of the day, I chose the one from Barnaba largely because Chris Barnaba was able to sell me on their business as much as on the car itself. I trusted him and once I flew up to Chicago to test drive, I found that everything he represented about the car turned out to be true. He made the process easy and was patient with me and my many questions as a first time Porsche buyer, including a thorough face-time review of the car. I would highly recommend Barnaba Autosport.

If you own a Porsche, don't even hesitate to give Barnaba Autosport a shot to prove to you perfection. This is exactly how servicing your Porsche should be!!! I made the initial mistake of taking my 997.2 Targa 4 to what I thought was a reputable shop called Olsen Motorsports located in Downers Grove (GOD AWFUL ESTABLISHMENT). I brought my car in for just an inspection with 0 codes. After a long wait time and many promises along with a unreasonable diagnostic fee of $600 I went to collect my car at Olsen Motorsports. As soon as I sat in my car, the dash was lit up like a christmas tree and the way the car drove was beyond clunky. I was beyond disappointed that Olsen Motorsports had the audacity to charge me $600 to return my car to me with more issues than I initially had before even bringing the car to them. Olsen Motorsports informed me that I needed to replace my entire PDK transmission for $15K (Beyond Disrespectful) After hearing about Barnaba Autosport through a referral of mine, I was immediately in great hands after speaking with Mark at Barnaba. I've been through numerous shops due to lack of communication and no one compares fractionally to the amount of attention to detail and the great amount of communication Mark establishes with you from the very start. I was reassured that my 911 was finally at the right place. Ron and Mark truly treats every single car that comes into Barnaba as if it were their very own. Beyond blessed to have finally discovered my permanent Porsche service center. After bringing my car to Barnaba, Mark was able to address all of Olsen Motorsports F*** Up's and the car drives like never before! Pulling super strong through every gear and driving extremely smooth. Never have experienced my car driving this good ever! Working with Barnaba Autosport has been a phenomenal experience. Huge thank you to Mark and Ron for squeezing me into their busy schedules, I greatly appreciate you all!! If you are questioning at all if you should bring your Porsche to Barnaba, please learn from my expensive mistake and take your car to them from the very start. I plan to refer all of my Porsche enthusiasts to Barnaba and can't wait to see what they are able to accomplish with my 911!
