You can try calling shops and asking if they can help, if you haven't already. Some will for a fee. I'm stock, so I can't make a recommendation. Good luck!
Come on now.. no shop will straight out tell you they can help with passing smog with aftermarket, non CARB approved parts. They don't want their shop getting shut down. It takes knowing someone that knows someone to get that done and you better be ready to "tip" real good.

Oil Leaks, Gaskets needing replaced

Hello All,

I have possibly 3 oil leaks coming from my 2008 335i.
1. Valve Cover Gasket.
2. Oil Filter Housing gasket.
3. lower pan gasket.

Any recomendations on a good shop with good pricing? Suggestions and ideas. Normally im pretty good at diys, but this time i dont have the time or the place to do it. And my funds are low.. at least not enough for the quotes i recieved from the 2 shops i called. But if anyone knows of a great deal & great San Diego location. Im open to advice and suggestions.

Thanks!
Nick

Try reaching out to Jeef . He has a shop in Esco and is my go-to guy. In fact, I just picked my car up from this afternoon from getting my stage 2 lpfp installed, brake fluid flush and vacuum lines replaced.

Hi everyone, wanted to make a post to offer coding in San Diego since I know there aren't a whole lot of coders in the area anymore. You can shoot me a PM if you are looking to get something done, I am Mobile well so if you are close by I can go to you or meet in the middle. My pricing is $50 for unlimited coding options. Please don't hesitate to shoot me a PM to ask any questions!

In about a month or 2 I will be offering Flashes as well (alpina, GTS, etc) as well as more extensive coding for retrofits.

Plastidip is really easy to do yourself. I just used it to spray some household stuff last week. I wouldn't pay someone to plastidip. You might also want to consider wrapping your trim instead. Plastidip looks very budget because it's not smooth.

Agreed, especially when it starts peeling, it just looks cheap

Anyone have any recommendations on where to get an alignment? I'm thinking about taking my car to Clarence Brown, but I wanted to see where everyone else is going. Has to be lowered friendly.
