Body Shop in Baton Rouge

Does anyone knows a good body shop to work on my e92 335i in Baton rouge or close to Lafayettei
? The problem with bad coil is back. I thought the mechanic in Lafayette fixed but it's back and happened when I used map 5 and hit the gas.
I also have a squicking annoying noise coming from the left wheel as I drive slowly. It's pretty embarrassing.
Some warning lights are ON too such as Brake, but the breaks are still fine..

Thats what happened on my e39...it threw a code for one coil..and about time I changed that one coil, a second coil went bad. I hope you get it taken care of. And out of the three ///mkah mentioned I found German Auto have been the cheapest and their work is pretty good. German Auto or Brian Harris normally does all my work.

As for the squeaking...sounds like sara's chipmunk might have jumped on your car LOL

I'm not sure. I don't see it on their calendar. I'm definitely going to do it though, it seems like a lot of fun. Do you get a time slip for the 1/4?

I believe the next Drag-N-Laps is scheduled for March. Check their March calendar to verify.

Looks like my next stop will be at German Auto or Autobahn. The mechanic said perhaps another coil went bad. Do you think i should just replace all coils, spark plugs and fuel injectors?

I was told if its 3 or more coils replace all of them. And if you haven't changed plugs go ahead and do it, it takes no time.

Kind of late notice, but if any of you guys are bored I will be running in the Grand Bayou Circuit race at no problem tomorrow. First race is at 1130 and the second is at 130 if yo guys wanted to come out and watch, I'm pretty sure it's free admission.

Ran Ben's E90 M3 at the strip. Only got two passes with a passenger but here are the results..





I only got to launch the car once before hand but I think with more seat time I could do a 12.5@111.
Test pipes, pullies and a re-tune would make this car really fun 12.2-12.4@114+ area with ease. NO DCT

You're thinking of NOLA. He's talking of No Problem Raceway.
