I am worried about the frame and suspension. I want a shop that has the right equipment, and know what they are doing. A tall order, I presume.

Regards,
it's actually not so bad. i had a problem with my e90 bumper before. they changed it with a new for 850 only

Working at a competitive price is different than having piece of mind. The cheap price also comes with an "o-k" workmanship.

Are you well aware of the joy ride their employee had with a black Murcielago going back to the dealership? The fact that it hopped a curb? Needed a new drive shaft and some bodywork? The fact that they were also black listed for future insurance claims (unsure of the name of the insurance company involved)?

I'd never trust or recommend a body shop after that.

Regards,

Go to StreetXtreme located at 8 Laidlaw Blvd Unit 2, Markham, ON.

Phone numbers are:

Shop Line: 905-554-8628
Patrick Hoang: 416-885-3238
Ronald Yu: 416-949-2001

Talk to Ron or Patrick, tell them Nick M sent you. They know who I am, and will 100% take care of your car for a good price.

And as jim.e states, stay away from Velocity. I have known them for many years, Barry personally. They fkd up my 350z a while back because they have a bunch of monkeys working in their shop...not the way it used to be when the owners actually were involved in their work. They are absolute crap. I would tell it to their faces on any given day.

Yup it was featured at the AutoShow last year

Quote from the article:

"LMC's role as caretaker includes, among other things, taking the vehicle to the track for the owner, preparing it for circuit use and performing basic maintenance between events. I asked if any special equipment was required and Klutt chuckled: "Pagani sent over a crate—one of those crates that Formula One teams use—full of tools! There's about $15,000 worth of tools between the computer, stands, pneumatic jacks and the special impact gun for the wheel nuts."

Damnnn I wish I owned this car

I'd settle for one of the road going versions of it or the Lotus Exos Experience (T125) since it's a bit more affordable at $1 million



For those that don't know what the Zonda R is all about. And yes I'm a huge fan of Top Gear UK.

Hey Locals, not quite Toronto here, out in the stix in the Kdubs. Just thought I would say a quick hello. Only been a member here for a few days, but have had some good chats with some local forum members and got a great deal on some winter rims.

Welcome! I use to go to UDub and if I remember correctly it's a bit more fun living out there with a sport sedan cause a lot less traffic and not far from back country roads. Those winters you scored a deal on will definitely come in handy though.
