Anyone have a recomendation for a shop to do a tire mount and balance, and an alignment? Can Nikolas or the place by ehrhart do tires?

I'd consider Erhardt but that will be expensive of course. I'd try Munks, I like those guys. Heard some bad stories about Motorwerks but have no personal experience with them.

I wouldn't take a dump at Nikolas' if it meant doing that or dying a horrible and painful death from intestinal explosion. I'm 41 and to date, Dave Nikolas' is the biggest #@$#%# I've ever met, I really doubt that will change even should I live to be 150YO. YMMV.

Best of luck.

ok - lets try this again. Any repair shops around me on the west side people would trust with an BMW? I need axles, a starter and a new clutch I suppose. I got a quote of 1900 from Advanced in Farmington Hills, when I did my alignment and windshield, but that just seems really pricey.

Define "West Side"... Royal Oak work for you? I'd suggest Karl Heinz Auto Center.

Anyone interested in my OEM sport suspension? Came off a 2002 330ci with ~100k miles. Nothing wrong with the parts, just wanted to be a little lower so I purchased an H&R touring kit.

More info here: http://detroit.craigslist.org/okl/pts/2936810773.html

Also - just wanted to give a big thumbs up to Jurgen's Automotive in Livonia... Jurgen helped me out with some suspension and cooling system work last week and I have nothing but good things to say about the experience. Nice guy, easy to deal with, and knowledgeable about the e46.
