** SoCAL BMW Installer & Mechanic ** :)
** Currently accepting larger jobs such as CCV, Clutches, Engine Swaps, Starters, etc while school is slow **

** I also work on F30s, F80s, E30s, E36, etc ** Only one I don't like working on are the E39 & 7 series, but I do work on E39's & E60's..

Follow me on instagram at @choleaoum :)

About Me: Sup. The name is Cholea people just call me C for short. Been working on cars since I was 16 in and out of my dad's car shop. Now I have a very expensive hobby so I don't mind lending hands to other members who don't want to pay out the butt for work on there cars. I only use high quality tools, and I am very knowledgeable. You can ask me anything from engines, to wheel fitment, to even motorcycles. If you don't know me too well then you know I value my time so please don't waste my time. I respect every member as long as they treat me with the same respect.

Here's my car:

Services Offered: I am able to do suspensions, differential bushings, oil filter housing gasket (ofhg), valve cover gaskets (vcg), vanos, headers, front control arm bushings (fcab), rear trailing arm bushings (rtab), and pretty much everything lol. I've done M3 swaps, LS1 swaps, etc. This is just a hobby for me to support my modding, I don't do this as a career but my father owns a shop so I just go and freeload all his tools. (Sometimes his lift, but his lifts are usually busy which I don't want to take money away from my own dad)


** I am not mobile, you have to come to my shop or home in Long Beach!

Vouch for my work if you guys can :) :thumbsup:

I also offer rim rebarreling services, and fender rolling rental.

Yeah it's possible if the lip is not clearcoated or painted. Will look 100x better but not perfect. The metal gets grinded away and blended in.

My drift car is almost ready, going to be super epic. I'm down to trade some of my mechanical skills for Nikon equipment, RC Drift cars, SR20 parts, or other little cool goodies that I could use.
