For maintenance anything I highly recommend the guys below. There should be a maintenance category since people stop going to the dealer once warranty has expired.

German Auto Service
217 Kenroy Lane, Suite #1
Roseville, CA 95678
(916) 782-4753

Cool. I'll add that. In the install section, I put maintenance in parenthesis next to various shops that I've heard were proficient at it.

You should....

I got some ideas...

Michael Angelos.
949 770 3322 ask for Richard.

DAI Motorsports
949 364-0954 ask for Jack Dayeh

Suntamers window tinting
949 582-8200 ask for Frank

South coast Mufflers
949 493-5977 ask for Jim

West coast autosound
949 367-6666 ask for Paul

Tucker Tire
949 364-3225 ask for John or Brad Tucker

Just a quick ones that come to my mind.
All good shops and excellent services.

This isn't a sponsors page, this is a place for recommendations for service, installs and repairs.

Would be nice and useful instead of a stickied spam thread and a handful of stickied spotted threads.

What's everybody pay for a good 4 wheel alignment? I'm getting quotes from $125 to around $195 (incl. recalibrating center in DCS, B.S. maybe?). I NEED a good shop fast!
