S**t Lexus clutches....

Hey Guys I own a 328xi e90 but this is a clutch question for a 2008 lexus is250.

I need to install a new clutch for my wife's car as the old clutch is slipping more and more. Does anyone know of a reputable Indy mechanic that can do the work. I understand this isn't a bmw but its a clutch and most are of similar construction.

Please help me out guys I don't want some tool poking around in my wife's transmission bay. Any reputable indy on this forum please feel free to solicit me about this work.

Overall any input would most greatly be appreciated.

Thanks Everyone.

Oh yea I'm around the Brooklyn area of NYC...

A clutch is a clutch and they all operate the same.
The difference is the steps involved with getting access to it.

I would try and find a indy Jap shop. Not german.
On the same note, any qualified shop can handle this blindfolded so just use ashop that makes you feel comfortable.

Gugs I dont know of any shops in my area that i can trust. Thats why im asking you guys where you would go if you were in my shoes.

If someone has had their clutch replaced and it was done well without issue please send me a reference.
