  1. Had a similar experience years ago with an independent shop I used and liked. I had a 944 Turbo S I used on the street and track. As I approached the shop I noticed the odometer turn 25,000 miles exactly. When I picked it that afternoon it had 25,050 miles. The shop owner was not in that day and there was just one employee. When I told him I noticed the mileage, he became very nervous and offered to not charge me for the work done. I said that wasn’t fair to the owner, paid and left figuring it wouldn’t happen again. I was not going to mention it to the owner but the employee did, without mentioning how many miles he’d driven.
    The next time I was in the owner mentioned the incident and said the employee told him had just gone for parts. I said “Fifty miles?” He said “Fifty! He never mentioned that.” He was not happy. Not sure what happened from there but I was pretty sure this would not happen again.
