Best Indy Mechanic in Chicago area?
 
Hi all. I just purchased an 02 M3 (never had a BMW before) and live in the NW burbs. Besides VS Motorsports, can you all recommend a solid, affordable mechanic to service an M3 at a reasonable rate?

Thanks in advance.

My friend owns a shop that specializes in German cars. I highly recommend him from my own experience. Its in Hodkins. Automedic Inc. 708-259-3107

Edit: Just noticed you are in the NW. Probably too far for you.

My bad - I posted VS motorsports and I didn't read the full thing. Haha. Why not VS though?

I take my m3 too Mike&Henry's in western springs for regular service they're good, he's been there forever. For performance go to Chicago performance and tuning. Talk to Al at CPT. He's the best hands down, he's not the cheapest but he doesn't do anything half assed. He's done both of my S4's and m3.

Rive road is right there...you have to drive over a big bridge to get to his shop? If its the same guy I'm thinking of..he had a lot of nice stuff there.

(708) 450-0300 from 2002s to our M3s; primarily e39 and older IIRC, but a damn good tech, friendly and good price; also raced his BMWs; He was quoted in the Car and Driver article on the M3 comparo (all generations) a couple of years ago, including the E46.

I am sure they have good reasons, I don't know why though.
