Garage List
in Sac area, i would recommend:

Endless autobody -- 3800 West Pacific Avenue Sacramento, CA 95820-1044 (916) 731-8018 ask for Eddie

they did great job and fast turn out, my friend as the owner has been in this industry for long enough and know what he is doing, never cut corners.


for out of warranty mechanical repairs, i vote for:

IPB autosport -- 1206 C St. Sacramento, Ca 95814 916-453-1465
ask for Ron.

they specialist in all euro repairs and owner himself is frequent Porsche race car mechanic, he built my friend's 964 RS-America from blueprint. they also specialist in BMW and will do any type of Pre-Purchase Inspection for buyers.
also IPB is the only auth. GIAC dealer in town, i'm holding up until IF GIAC is coming out a flash holder, i'll go to Ron and have it flash.

Talk to Peter Imamura, good guy, thorough and accomodating. Helped me take care of a large insurance claim, made sure it was done right, re-adjustments and all, as well as post repair support. They do a lot of the Stevens Creek BMW repair work, use OEM certified parts and paint, and make sure everything is right no matter what.

I hear nothing but good things about RJ paint shop down in Pleasanton. it's a bit on the pricey side, but it's well worth it to get the job done right. Are you getting rid of your bumper Juan?

take a day off and go to RJ's. It's worth the drive. While you are there you can go next door to Alekshop and a few more doors down is Omega Tintwerks. Both nice guys and you can chat with them to see if they can do anything for your car in the future.
