May 12th about 4:30 in the afternoon. Black sedan with angel eyes and BBS CH's (I think). JLeviSW windshield header and a couple of other mods. Parked outside the Shell station at Harris Ranch (I5 and SR198). Thought about pulling you over just to say "Hi"

Independant maintenance shop near Pasadena?

My car is out newly out of warranty and I just got a service engine soon light. I used OBD II scanner on it and all the error codes have to do with the TPS sensor.

Can someone recommend a good shop near the Pasadena area that won't rape me? I was thinking about taking it to Avus in Glendale, but I read some bad reviews about them. Where should I take my car? TIA.

John is awesome! I live in Los Angeles, and make the drive over to his shop. He is a tip-top guy!

EMW is a great shop; John takes much pride servicing BMW's.

On my way in to my client in Newbury Park, saw a really nice silver e46 3 series with CSL style trunk today w/e46fanatics.com sticker on rear side window. We were both on 101N & both got off at Rancho Conejo.
Nice!

8 o' clock this morning, I saw an Alpine White e46 M3 with CSLs and the license plate read "16HRDAY" parked in front of the House Of Champions. I train at the House Of Champions and I was wondering if you do too?
