norcal autoshop list

if anybody would like to create a new list with updates and additional places, feel free to post one and i'll just edit the first post.

i don't visit the regional forums very much, and this would be of great help to those who are seeking norcal shops. please follow a similar format and additional/more specific categories or changes of categories (if you see fit) would be great (5/14/09).


UPDATED 7/20/2010--thanks johnhk79

I guess I'll start with a few that rob had gave me... not sure about the experiences of a few of them though..

the So calers could probably make another thread too or maybe we could use this and just have more labels...

I have a few to add:

Tint shops - Tints R Us in San Jose (Juan Pena) - 408-971-7009 (will install at your location)

Clear Bra installs - ClearArmor in San Carlos (Simon Tiu) - 650-654-6141 (must go to his shop for installs) http://www.cleararmorinc.com

Paintless Dent Repair - Dent Free in San Mateo (Tony Correia) - 650-780-3030/650-366-8585/650-245-8747

I have used all three of these...sometimes on more than one car. When I ran the Audi club we got Dent Free to come to one of our get togethers..and he did 14 cars that day...at a discount.

I think this thread is very useful but may I suggest that we add/keep in the
list shops/people we have used and we know they do quality work or at least
we know someone who has used them and they were extremely satisfied while
the result was absolute best.

do you happen to have names for the other ones and #'s? I think its best that people know first names of the owner/provider if they want the service done and of course #s... just trying to make it all easier know what i mean.

I see this guy in the list:

1. Zaino Dealer (San Jose) - 408.629.4931 (Steve)

Has anyone used him? Does he use Zaino? Does he clay? How did your
car turn out? Any comments regarding your experience, appreciated.

actually i got his name off of the club rsx forum. figured i should put his name there in case bay area people wanted zaino products. if hes only a dealer i dont know if he would actually service your car... you can call and ask.

for suspension installs, i've gone through both auto innovations in milpitas (ask for orlando) and carlab in santa clara (ask for darwin). both did great work, and were reasonably priced. both are also very convenient, especially for south bay people.

for body work, b-line in san jose is suppose to do very good work (never had any personal experience though). they're not cheap however. but if you're getting stuff done through insurance, check them out for sure. (408) 279-4500
