The first official Porsche rolled off the lines back in 1948 but remains as captivating as ever to today’s auto enthusiasts. But, as well-engineered as these German marvels are, they sometimes require repairs and maintenance.
GPO Tuning (aka “German Performance Options”) is the leading provider of quality Porsche service in Nashville. Regular maintenance includes changing the oil, filters and other wear items and inspecting the AC, brakes, and other vital systems. Your service will also include a visual inspection of the tires.
Ensuring that your vehicle undergoes regular maintenance is the best way to keep it reliable and safe for you and your family. Most models recommend a maintenance schedule of every 10,000 miles. However, Tennessee weather can get much warmer than in Germany, and it may be necessary to change your oil every 5,000 to 7,500 miles to keep your vehicle operating at its most efficient. At GPO Tuning, we stress the importance of using a quality synthetic oil. Even if you drive an older model, your mineral-based motor oil should be replaced with synthetic. Quality motor oil cost around $10 per liter, and most models require between four and 10 liters.
The brakes are one of the most important aspects of your vehicle. Your Porsche is outfitted with an intricate braking system that has the capability to match your vehicle’s mass and velocity so that you can stop safely when it matters most. Modern Porsche brakes are made of high-end compounds and designed for your specific model. You will likely not need a complete brake job every time you go in for Porsche service at Nashville’s GPO Tuning but, depending on the state of your brakes, you may need pads and sensors. Ceramic brake pads are an aftermarket alternative to standard Porsche brakes and come with the advantage of reducing dust.
In addition to general maintenance, there are many reasons you may require Porsche service. Nashville traffic can take a toll on your vehicle, and the constant stop and go you likely experience on your daily commute means that your engine is sitting idle. This weakens the engine’s ventilation system, meaning you’ll run a greater chance of experiencing a decline in engine efficiency as deposits from the combustion process build up.
German Performance Options can diagnose and repair issues with your Porsche no matter the year, make, or model. From the electrical system to the exhaust and everything in between, your vehicle is in good hands. When you choose GPO, you are guaranteed an seasoned Porsche expert and mechanics who’ve undergone brand-specific training. You’ll also enjoy the benefits of working with a small business that values you, not your wallet. All of this without the expense or inconvenience of scheduling repairs at the Porsche dealership.
