Reputable garage shop in Atlanta, GA

Hey guys, was wondering if anyone knows a good and reputed garage shop that does aftermarket installation work in the Atlanta, Georgia area? Just looking for the basics...exhaust, suspension, etc.

Thanks in advance!

Harrison Motorsports. Awesome people. David runs a great shop, and his mechanics are top notch.

Alex at Carma Motorsports can take care of you. I am in Brookhaven and he's a friend/neighbor of mine.

my E90 is coming off its warranty this july sadly. I've always had work done at Global Imports. This past week they replaced blower motor and valve cover gasket.

Do you guys ever have your cars serviced there?

Like atl32807, my '07 E92 is now off warranty.

I'm looking for a shop for run of the mill service, rather than for tuning or mods. I'm hoping to find better than dealer pricing and not telling me 50 things need to be done every time I stop there (how many cabin air filters have I replaced for f@*% sake?). I'm in Northern suburbs as well (Alph) and would appreciate any recommendation. For the people who recommended the shops above, do you have regular maintenance done there?

Used to, but between our bad experiences there and the others we've read and heard about, I won't go back unless I have no other choice. And if I absolutely had to, the car would not be leaving my sight.

And when I say we had bad experiences, that was from the sales floor, to service, to parts.

Harrison Motorsports does all kinds of regular maintenance. They are my primary service facility for work done out of warranty. Don't let the "Motorsports" in their name mislead you. They do great regular maintenance.

what type of bad experiences have you had? I agree Steve Garvey is the man, and i've always had a pretty decent experience with Global. Although since they started their new sonic automotive "true pricing" gimick it seems unlikely i would buy from them again.

Hey gang...looking to do an oil change but don't have any ramps to raise the car enough to get under it easily. I have the oil and filter...just need a shop with a lift that will do it for me. Any indy places that will accommodate me in the Dunwoody, Sandy Springs, Norcross areas?

wow another +1 for Steve Garvey at Global Imports. I always request him when bringing our cars into service.

My buddy with an e46 M3 swears by Performing Imports in Alpharetta. They do a lot of aftermarket installs, Dinan stuff and otherwise
