Just picked my car up from A&L today, great people. Far from pricey, I did drop the forum referral tho. IND had some pretty stuff in there.

Lol nice.

As u will note it is 245 in the a-m. I am currently up because my gf stupid fuckin dogs keep moving around, shaking themselves, licking obnoxiously loud or moaning. So now I'm fucked, forgot to mention I've been up for 45 mins already. I could literally turn these dogs inside out right now. I know my blood pressure has to be through the roof and I wouldn't be surprised if I started to bleed from my eyes ears and nose.

What car? I just peaked in at the cars in the IND shop... Tried negotiating a set of LM-Rs into my final bill, but Tony and I agreed that I may have to spend more than $100 to be eligible for free $5,000 wheels.

Unhappy

Regarding A & L, I took my car in there Friday, July 9th. I was in an accident and decided it was a good time for some upgrades. I wanted to get M-tech front bumper, Vorsteiner domed hood, and gloss black grilles. I was working with Anthony. I don't know what's going on now but he seems detached from my car. Last I spoke to him was last Thursday and he didn't know when the bumper would be coming in.

Now I'm starting to worry. They've had my car for a week and a half now and the only communication on what's going on is me calling them. I don't think they have done anything other then removing the damaged bumper, grilles and hood.

I cannot get a hold of Anthony at all this week. They keep telling me he's not in and Tony (his dad) told me the hood is in but doesn't know about the bumper or grilles. He said he would have Anthony call me back. I doubt he will. Should I be concerned?

No dont be concerned at all they might have been really busy and stuff. Anthony will give you a call back soon I bet. You dont have to be worried at all with them they will take care of your car likes its theres. They are nice people and will do amazing work.

Yeah, I know they are good which is why I took my car there. Anthony and his dad were very cool. I haven't really heard much in the time my car has been there. I hope someone let's me know what's going on soon.

I run a bodyshop as well and time to time we do get busy but if youre not getting a callback "I" would have no problem with you just stopping by to check on the progress.

Although, there is no excuse for not getting a call back within 24hrs.

(in the past 2-4wks many quality shops have become inundated with work and have to ramp back up to production speed. Over the past year they have gotten into vacation speed and its tough to hussle again.)

This is the typical BS that goes on with them. Most other recommended body shops I have dealt with have returned phone calls within 24 hours. That and numerous instances of them not doing work right the first time is why I will not take a car there ever again, and why I will tell anyone that asks not to go there.

That is what I had heard from A&L when I had my car in there two weeks ago. They had a guy on vacation, and the storms messed things up a little.

In regards to A&L, Tony was always responsive, and even though I originally contacted with Anthony, I never really spoke with him and Tony handled my repair/upgrades without a hiccup.

I have used Wizard Werks in Chicago. Ask for Freddy. He is an enthusiast and treats his customers well.
