I'd highly suggest taking Joonsups recommendation of just going to RJ's

Pleasanton really isn't that far from Berkeley and you will be getting a proper job done

RJ is doing BMW's constantly and he has a lot of experience in it and he's more of a shop that does customization as well and the owner is the one painting himself, not just a shop who just has a random staff of painters and preppers that are found from craigslist.

take the drive over to him, you'll be happy you did

just got my car back this morning from him:

For collusion or mods, I would like to mention International Autobody and Paint. They do good work for a fair price, and those folks that are closer to SF than to Pleasanton.
(You can look up the address from the front page where all the addresses and body shops are.)

+1 for RJ PAINT in Pleasanton...

Dropped off the wife's X5 at RJ's yesterday (rear passanger door/quarter panel needs to be replaced from accident). Everyone there was really friendly/professional. RJ knew his stuff, and I've heard not only from car forums but friends as well.

Zoeb - those pics of the M in RJ's office - is that yours? nice...

Not so great feedback on Edge Motorworks.

Had my Quaife unit installed there. 38K miles later and the diff had a loud whine. At first they said it was normal, then told me I had worn it out (after 8 track days) then offered to open it up and take a look at my cost.

Turns out backlash was not set at install (according to them there is no way to set it, a fact disputed by some very reputable diff experts on the east coast). Ring gear was chewed up, metal flakes in the oil.

Last time they'll see any business from me.

Just wanted to recommend Sam at Sleek Motoring in Mountain View.
Here's the Yelp page: http://www.yelp.com/biz/sleek-motoring-mountain-view
There's also a Facebook page too.

2362 Old Middlefield Way

Mountain View, CA 94043

He's a great guy; knowledgeable, friendly, offers good insight and recommendations. I got quite a bit installed (bbk, coils, exhaust, f/r sways) with him about 7 months ago. He also cares about safety too in that he makes sure you are out of the garage while he works on your car on the lift.

Does anyone know of a wheel shop that will mount tires and install tires/rims onto my e92 thats a little closer to the Walnut creek, Danville, concord even Berkeley area. Auto innovations in milpitas sounds great but i'm looking for something a little closer north. I'm going to need to take two cars to bring all my parts

+ a billion... johnny and his family crew kicks arsh! its nice knowing that his dad started the shop back in the day and is now ran by his sons. their customer service is out the roof and the quality is just sinfully perfect.

i was getting some lil things done, custom. like a couple days work if that. johnny allowed me to send my wheels out to get done. he put my car up on one of the indoor racks and wrapped it with a body bag. lol looks like a giant bag of fruit from the grocery store.

he's not making any money on the wheel refinish and i am tying up one of his inside racks.

he knows his german side thats for sure.

ended up finding out how small this bay area is too. he knows so many peeps i know.

oh yeah he even allowed jeremy to come down to finish the clear bra on my car. no charge again.
