Right East of Dixie Highway on Glades road on the right there is a shop called Lion motoring, Tell them Ajay With the Jet Black bimmer sent You There,

They're good but tend to be a bit pricey, where'd you get the springs and for how much? i think when i get my rims i'm going to be getting those

They are specifically a rim shop.. and told a friend of mine with a 335i that they were gonna do all sorts of things with his car.. speaking of tuning options that is.. I don't know about them besides some exhaust work and Rims.. As far as I am concerned stick with people who have done it before. Check around a lot of people have put springs on their cars in the area. I have them on mine and they were done by VIP.. But it is up to you of course. Shops like lion believe they can charge an arm and a leg cause they park $100k vehicles outside their shop to draw attention.

They Are on Lyons and Hillsboro i believe, its in deerfield and Jacque's number is (954) 798-0450

They charge 80$ an hour for the work and told me it usually takes a couple of hours to get it perfect... I know this since i am also interested in this

Good Luckk Dude!!

And Vince... Lion Motoring Also Specializes in Sound Systems and Body Work... They Totally Refinished one of Shaq's Cadillacs, and Totally Hooked up A Crossfire Shaq Bought For his Cousin.

plus they also install the Calibre System (radar/Laser Detector & Laser Jammer)
