East Bay shop for a pre-purchase inspection

Postby wheezyslowpoke » Tue May 07, 2019 12:11 pm

I'm test-driving an NC Miata tomorrow afternoon at the Oakland/San Leandro border. If it goes well, I'm planning to take the car in for a PPI at a local shop. Does anyone have a recommendation for a good shop in that area? I'm thinking I might try PR Motorsports in Hayward.

I was hoping one of our East Bay people would chime in on this to help you out, but how did it go?

The car was so ratty that I didn't get to the PPI stage, but my plan had been to use P R Motorsports in Hayward. I have a buddy who used them about 10 years ago when he had Miata, and he had good things to say about them.

I've got an NC getting a PPI right now. If it goes well, I'll likely buy the thing, then take a train out to pick it up next Saturday. Now I'm curious, what's a good Miata shop in the San Mateo area? I'm sure I'll be wanting to mod it at least a little, and I'd like to find a good shop for that.

The best is in Mountain View, but you've got to wait in line.

PPI showed potential body damage and rust. On to the next car.

This one was in Roseville and I went with a shop out there called Made in America Made in Japan.
