Just got back from Invisi-Guard in Belmont. Had my 335is there for tint and clear bra. Great price and great work. Called around to a few shops for a price and Jeremey and Rob beat them all. Found them on yelp (just put in Jeremy's name and clear bra) tons of good reviews so I pulled the trigger. (707) 328-5865 is their number.

I changed my power steering fluid in Santa Clara today at Pit Row. It's a DIY garage with lifts and tools and really reasonable rates. You can read my review of the place here.

If you like working on your car and prefer to do things yourself, this is the place to go. I left *all* of my tools at home and felt quite comfortable using their loaded MAC tool chest to get things done.

Vacaville Tire Center on Callen St. is a good tire shop, they also sell wheels. Going there for my next set of RFTs, $720 out-the-door for Potenzas.

Looking for 2 Ventus V12's in 265/30/19. Most places in the South Bay are quoting over $500 after mount/balance. Any ideas?

Hello everyone. New to the Bay Area.

I just got a M3 rep front bumper and new kidney grills and looking for a very good body shop in the Bay Area that does instillations and paint. Also looking for a place that does tinting.

I heard SS Custom's does good work. Can anyone shed some info on them or provide another good body shop?

Thanks

Don't know any shops in Bako, but in Fresno, I highly recommend European Automotive Services. Very knowledgeable staff and great service. The price is reasonable as well. Here's their website:

use silicon valley auto glass for the tint. I've taken 4 cars to them and have been very happy with the look and give b-line a call. I've had them do some custom body work for my 335i/ e92 m very cool guys. Ask for Mike and say Art Hernandez referred you
