I figured we might want to start a thread that has some reputable/recommended shops in one central location. Add your recommendations and I'll add them to this list. I'm sure many of you will be able to add more as the ones I'm starting off with are just recommendations I saw in a few different threads.

Accutint in Bellevue is not good (not the original owners). They scratched one of my windows on my old E38. The Seattle Accutint shop is still owned by the same owners and is much much better. They've always hooked me up.

Add Speedware Motorsports to the list. They do really good work. Talk to Kelly.

Carb Conn in Bellevue is also good. They have a DYNO and they also installed my meth kit

Could you update the original post with everyone's comments? Then hopefully we can make this a Sticky. A lot of the other regional forums have similar sticky threads.

bump!

Speedware does anything from regular maintenance to roll cages, harness bars and custom engines. They also have hook ups for body work and wheel repair stuff.

Carb Conn does regular maintenance and aftermarket installs. They installed my methanol injection kit.
