so my neighbor opened up a body shop... [South Bay]

I'm getting my tires put on there and an alignment. He's giving me an unbelievable price for everything and is one of the nicest people I've dealt with in regards to body shops.

His shop specializes in European cars (BMW/Mercedes) but he does work on all kinds. He pretty much does everything and also has access to hookups on everything including tires, paint, window repair, etc.

Met one of the workers there who has a turbo Supra in MINT condition putting out 430 at the crank on pump gas. The engine is cleaner than my interior... no joke! I'll take some pictures next time. Also, my neighbor has a Lexus GS with a full Wald kit and blackouts.. looks sick.

Here's one of his grand opening coupons w/ an address and phone number:



However, if you're interested in getting some work done or even a quote. Let me know and I'll PM you his cell phone #.

Just wanted to share this with local fanatics. Quality work, excellent customer service, and unbeatable prices. Plus, he's my next door neighbor

Can he order parts as well? I need high flow cats, and can you get me a quote for header installs?

What brand are cats? Any? He might be able to.

Headers install he can definitely do, I'll make him give you a good price

I'll ask for you tonight and let you know.

Not too sure about the brand of cats. Not done much research on them. Can you also ask on a coilover install price?

Koven, any high flow cats will work, as long as they are "high flow" and will past smog.

I will bring in my GTI for an alignment. Is balance/rotate extra?

He probably does charge extra usually but I have a feeling he'll do it for you for free.

The best thing to do is call him on his cell and let him know James sent you, then ask about pricing. I already let him know I'll be telling my friends so I'm sure he'll treat you well

I'll PM you the his number.

Do you know if he does dent/scratch repair? I just bought a new 335i coupe like a couple weeks ago and someone decided to side-swipe me in the grocery store parking lot.... recommendation would be great!
