Default Repair Shops Las Vegas

I have been a member since 2012. Recently moved to Las Vegas and looking for a reliable repair shop. 2001 XK8 convertible.
Thanks in advance for any assistance.

Rich,

I've moved your post from New Member Area - Intro a MUST to US Western Region forum. This is the appropriate place for this question.

I continue to take my 2001 XKR to Las Vegas Jaguar and ask for John, who heads up the service department. He has several long term Jag repair guys on the team, who've been fixing Jags for 20+ years each. They have unraveled some weird problems for me. While shop rates are high at every dealer, I never see them running up the bill or over charging me. They will also work from my supplied parts, so this worked great recently when I had the ABS light on and figured out I needed a new module. The part was crazy expensive from Jag, and I found a company in LA that rebuilds them from your old part. The repair was $800 instead of $3K.

The challenge with Jag and other small production cars is the parts cost is CRAZY. I once met a chap who did work for Jag in Coventry years back and Jag was ordering 50 brake sets at a time for the XK's while Ford probably orders hundreds of thousands for a Fusion. Now the crazy prices are understandable.
