Any advice is much appreciated.

Thanks.

I'd be interested to hear also, he has a confidence inspiring level of detail on his website.

No I don't have personal experience but I found this guy by reading a good review found here: http://www.ft86club.com/forums/showthread.php?t=11727

I believe Vlad (the owner) is the first detailer in Ottawa to offer OptiCoat and also CQuartz.

Couple of questions:

1. Thinking of getting new wheels and tires for the summer, any recommendations on best places in Ottawa to mount and balance them would be appreciated.

2. Also have a small scratch on one of my doors that I would like to have looked at or buffed out, any recommendations??

Garage List
2014 Z4 35is  [0.00]
If you're looking for road force balancing, I went to Parker Auto (www.parkerautocare.com) and they charged me $135 all in to mount 4 tires on my 19" wheels and balance them. The balance was perfect. Just as important, they didn't put a mark on my wheels, which had just been refinished days before I had the tires mounted.

If you are running run-flats, they may charge you more.

Folks:

Need to get my rear bumper repainted. It has few blemishes but no major dents. How much have you paid recently for getting some R&R for your rear bumper?

My usual contact is super busy, but I don't want to wait too long and therefore looking for suggestions on quality shops around the area.

Thanks

Caliper Painting

Anyone know of a place in Ottawa that can paint calipers. Mine have a bit of rust on them and would like to just get them painted in black.

I just ruined my two left side rims on the beautiful roads of Quebec
Now I can say (Je me souviens) where the pothole is. Another $2000 that went in smoke.

Accident on Woodroffe & 417

Does anyone know who was the driver of the BMW involved in this accident?

Police said Monday their investigation so far has determined a black BMW was on the westbound off-ramp from Hwy. 417, attempting to head south on Woodroffe, when the driver lost control of the car on the curve.
The car hit the curb, crossed the two southbound lanes and jumped the median before slamming into the northbound Hyundai Accent. It eventually came to a stop facing south in the northbound lanes of Woodroffe.

See source http://www.ottawacitizen.com/news/ki...808/story.html

and

I'm looking for a good body shop to have my Hood completely repainted on my E90 and rear bumper pressure cracks fixed and repainted.

Any reputable shops around the Ottawa East end area?

Thank you

Tuning shops in Ottawa?

I had assumed this was already posted somewhere but I could not find anything using the search... so apologies for a duplicate question here.

Any recommendations for an Ottawa shop that will do a full re-flash tune (no piggy-backs preferably) to an E90 N55 xDrive 6MT? Either off-the-shelf or custom tune would be fine.

Thanks in advance.

Hi guys, I am new to this forum. My rear bumper got hit and run last year and result in a big corner dent on my rear bumper. Due to the high insurance deductible I decided to not got with them. So I did dome research on the repair companies and narrow them down to the following two:

1. SRM Auto Repair on 1645 Comstock Road.
2. Auto Dentist on 151 Bentley Avenue.

Just wondering if anyone can tell me which one is better in terms of price and quality. Or if you know a better shop other than the above, please let me know.

Thanks a lot.

brad at landon refinishing on cleopatra his work is top notch.. but it wasnt cheap.. he did my rear bumper a few years ago. i think it was around 600-700. but its flawless.. he saved my pdc's as well. he takes his time so it will be a few days before u get ur car back.. and hes always busy so better take ur car in to let him see it first. i think he does a lot of work for that nice motorcycle club. so u know his paint job has got to be good.
