They get it done at the Benz service centre in Ambattur. Porsche flies the mechanics down.
Thats where the rolls also gets serviced.

There's this service centre in Ambattur Indl. Estate which Porsche HQ rents out for a day or two.
They use the general tools, lift, water wash facilities, etc at the centre.
Some specialist tools and diagnostics are carried down.

Guys, surprised that no one reported it yet... Economic Times carried an article today on Manoj Lulla and his Carrera Turbo (MLCarrera) today in their Madras Plus supplement paper...
