Would like to add Bullet Performance to the list, under maintenance/service shops.

http://www.yelp.com/biz/bullet-performance-costa-mesa

Just went there this past weekend to have my car inspected before my warranty is up. Guys know their stuff! Philip and Travis, the guys who took care of me, have worked as techs at a couple of the OC BMW dealerships. A yelp review says that the entire team came from the racing scene and other dealerships. They had me in and out of there within an hour, and since they didn't find any problems with my car, I wasn't even charged!

They have a ton of track-ready M3's hanging around the place, and their waiting area is filled with trophies. They recently expanded their shop, so the garage bays you see in the yelp pictures are only half of what they own.

edit: 31 reviews on google, 5/5 stars!

http://maps.google.com/maps/place?um...ed=0CB0QqgUwAQ

and an article about a race in which they placed first.

I'll make sure to let people ask for Owen Potter. Which sub-group would you like this business under?

Thumbs up for Owen at Ultimate Autohause. It's such a relief to have a trustworthy shop to take my car to.

I just want mention Precision Motors in Newport Beach - http://www.precisionmotors.com/ - (949) 650-9269

Eric and Smith were great. I installed a Sirius Module in my e90, called to ask when I could come in, they said to come on in, right then and there. They have an Auto Logic (I think that's what it was) coding system, plugged it and and boom. Pretty much done.

Ayed for paint work he is located in ontclaire. He is very popular over on the e46fanatics forum. I had my m3 rep front bumper painted and it looks amazing. I have a thread dedicated to him. So if you guys need paint and for a really good price he is the guy. Also, Mike's muffler in el monte is great for muffler and welding. His address is 12222 Garvey Ave. in El Monte.

Daniel Ross (714-606-1174) is the man. Especially with downpipes. He can do it in an hour flat and probably has the best prices anywhere.

Have to add Alhambra Auto Service to this list.
http://www.yelp.com/biz/alhambra-auto-service-alhambra

Keith, the owner, has done great work for me. He did my alignment for a great price and he is a trained BMW technician. He use to work at New Centry BMW but decided to open up his own shop.

He does not only specialize in alignment, he does other things in the field of auto repair.

Just today, I had Keith install my BMW Performance Suspension. I trust him and will go to him with any BMW related issues.

Valencia European
26516 Ruether Ave #201
Santa Clarita,CA
http://www.valenciaeuropean.com/Home_Page.php

Found this Place on Yelp and saw a review of another customer who drives an e46. Took my car in to check alignment cus it felt off. Free alignment check. 45$ for 4wheel alignment. cant go wrong with this place. He uses arago V3d machine. Talked to another customer who owns a 545 and 335 and says hes been working on his bimmers for 5yrs and never had a problem. Bjorn the mechanic/shop owner works on any type of car but specializes in euro cars. so for any of you guys in the valley that dont want to drive ur car far as shit this is the place! and 45$ for wheel alignment? SHITS A STEAL!!!! Glad i found this shop

edit: this is a one man shop so an appmt would be best but takes walk ins as well. good thing i got there early this morning
