Hey ~ r u stationed in Aviano???
I live in Sacile. I went to Top Cars in Pondonone for exhaust and FMIC. The guy that worked on my car seemed pretty knowledgeable and detailed. I'm sure they do suspensions as well.

Also the body shop next to AGIP right off the main gate.......
I got my DP's installed there. I asked them if they work on suspensions when i was getting my DP's installed and they said yes. Didn't like their service too much though and installation was kinda pricey.

Is this the Top Cars near Roverado? Or is there another shop in Pordenone? What kind of exhaust did you get? Did you get the exhaust from there or did you get one from somehwere else?

i'm not sure the name of the town it's in. It's actually before you get to pordonone. When you exit the side gate, turn right and just follow the road towards pordonone and you'll see it on the right hand side. I have Supersprint exhaust which i bought thru them. I heard there are quite a few tunings shops out there in pordonone area. Talk to Delaney @ Pentagon he seems to know a few.

the one next to AGIP right???? that's where i got my catted DP's installed. They did tell me they work on suspensions. They seem to be OK but little overpriced IMO. I don't plan on going back there. Plus, there not really a tuning shop. Not sure how much experience they have w/ aftermarket parts but seems like their used to working on old BMW's and others cars of older models (late 80's and early 90's car) As far as suspensions go i wouldn't just take it to anyshop. Try and find a place where they specialize in tuned cars. And if you do let me know ^^

Yeah I know. The price might have gone down I did it back in August. But I dought it. I want the Carbon Fiber Trim I think that might be the next mod. How did Pordenone BMW treat you with having mods done to your car?

well they didn't care too much about the mods.... actually they didn't care at all. Last week i was installing a BOV on my car and broke the nipple off the manifold that leads to the vacuum line. I took it to the dealership w/ all my mods still in, even my procede. I ended up replacing the whole manifold which i coughed up 750 euros but they didn't say anything about the mods. All they told me was becarefull when it rains becuase i have the CAI. No voiding warranty or anything like that. But there customer service sucks bigtime !!!
