Platte Forme and R's Tuning

I think I am going to have each of these shops do some work on my car (have to go to both for different work because of logistics), and just wanted to hear people's thoughts. Both seem like great places but would appreciate any feedback. Thanks.

I myself have known and had work done by Platte Forme a.g.'s members for years, and I have had a number of items worked on by The R's Tuning since their opening. I've been very happy with the work and the service from both, they've both gone above and beyond for me. Can't go wrong with either.

lol you're still asking for opinions on R's?

Never had work done at PF, but my friend (Late above) has had a lot of work done there

I've noticed they tend to focus on e46s more though. correct me if I'm wrong..

Have had work done at both places (suspension, alignment, BBK, etc), and both are excellent shops.

I was more interested in hearing about Platte Forme since I have not talked to anyone about them and just thought I would throw R's Tuning in there.

R's is great. I've been there for coilover, cornerbalance, alignment, and track setup stuff. If you are look for a great track setup shop this is for sure the place to be.

Of course!

Tom has helped fix my cars numerous times due to a variety of issues.
As well as helped install mods, and code my car. I couldn't imagine not having my cars coded!

R Tuning did my alignment, corner balance and coilover install... couldn't have been happier.
Tom@Eas has done tons for me and my cars throughout the past 5 years...

Either way you will be happy.

There are many options out there to get work done. Stop by each shop to see how they approach you and make your decision from there, that is usually the best way.
