    Last week saw Tim at HIP's with a handful of parts.
    seen him by HK's Shack early afternoons.

    If you guys like Oysters, come on down to Chacha's in HK, they'll sell out before 7pm, live music, good vibes.

    I'm looking for Mike's number too, what does he do to wheels (RS's) ?.

    A&A's appoinments drive me crazy as i dont think Tony will work on my car, too many headaches, and Frederick just ask's how's it doing, but dont bring it in., lol.
    BME's shaked their heads, but were helpful never the less. I like them all.

    Ace glass repair, on Ward, great price for my 09 tacoma windshield, same day turnaround.

    My neibourgh takes her ML320 to MB Euromotors on Kona St, he's fair too, he did a transfer case and motor mounts on my 98 ml320.


    Whom can do 4 wheel aligments ? installed off-set trailing arm bushings and would like to align her now.

    Cool, I'll take 500 of them. That price has to be missing a few zero's.

    BME: 1
    Dealer: 1.5 they are sooo expensive
    GAS: Heard good things from guy I used to work with. Prices seem sort of fair. Never did any business with them though but customer service seems good on quotes.
    A&A: Heard good stories.
    Motorwerkes: Great for VWs....

    You are better off regarding all of them....to go with Wil. He knows his stuff. He also does house calls which is a big plus.

    Thanks for the reply, but didn't you, in post #15, say BME can't even change oil? And you're ranking them number 1?

    Here's my .02
    1. A&A Motorwerkes: Priced right and the work is done right the first time. This is were I'd take any BMW that was out of warranty for repairs. I highly recommend Albert & Antonio!
    2. German Auto Specialists: Work done right the first time here too, and most likely it'll only be your car that is worked on that day, so you'll get your car back sooner than later. However, you do pay for that exclusivity.
    3. Motorwerks: Never dealt with them...but Beastie uses them exclusively...just about.
    4. Honolulu Bimmer: Never dealt with them
    5. BME: Nice and clean facility, but you pay/paid for it...this would be my last resort, but that's just me.

    I'd suggest Tim Knight as he is mobile. Indys usually don't like installing owner parts. If there is a problem with the part you'll be SOL.

    A&A said they would do the job, but I might need some power steering hoses replaced. Do you have Tim Knight's contact info? Thanks
