Requesting good mechanic recommendation near Huntington Beach/Costa Mesa area

I searched forums for recommendations on mechanic referrals in the Orange County area. Ronin Autowerks in Fullerton was highly recommended. Bullet Performance in Costa Mesa was recommended as well. The PM work I am considering is tensioners, belt, hoses, and WP for my E46 330i with 78K miles. It is starting to squeal but runs fine otherwise.

Fullerton is a bit of a drive, but maybe not too far for a really great shop. I live in Fountain Valley (near HB). Any recommendations of other shops nearby is appreciated. Thanks!

Steve
