recommendation for cosmetic installer?

Hi guys,

I am sorry, it might be an old and repetitive question.. but here it goes.

Since I don't have a private garage where I can work on my car.. I'm looking for a shop that does 'good' job with installing aftermarket parts.

I did all the easy parts, emblems, grills, air filter, and angel eyes in my shared garage but I do not want to risk doing lip and diffuser without proper tools.

For now, I'm only looking to do cosmetic ones.. front lip, diffuser, and LCI taillights. It would be better if I can get coding done at the same place for the tail light, but I can always go to other place after installing it.

I understand it is not a difficult task for experts but I'd like to get it done by someone who really cares and respects customer's favorite toy.

Thanks folks!

You should be able to do all of that with very basic tools. Nothing fancy needed. All are definitely DIYs.

I agree with The Tech. But, if you still aren't comfortable with DIY, call Ill Tech in Bellevue and ask for Cody.

Good Shop

I use CNC auto for my M3 CTS-V and STI, know the guys well. They do good work, talk to Joel and say Julian sent you.
I was ok with Iltech but they cost more and damaged one of my old cars and did not treat me as good as CNC, I just like how personal CNC is, they treat your car like one of their own.
