The trouble is that most people (including most mechanics) don't know that, and the car has such a mystique and a reputation for being exotic and therefore expensive, that most garages are actually *afraid* to work on it. They make their money on safety inspections and routine service and they have little interest in anything that disrupts their routine.   If you can get over that, then most any place will do, but in my experience this isn't easy. That is one reason most of us end up doing our own stuff.
