Need install shop recommend for the Valley or LA

Any recommendations for a good shop in the Valley or LA that can install a OEM Euro Bumper and new pads all the way round on an e90 M3.

Thanks in advance

We're located in Anaheim, but specialize in E9X M3. If willing to make the extra distance, you'll be well taken care of.

i've heard good things about minicorsa http://www.minicorsa.com/

apparantly the owner/main guy used to own an e90 m3 himself...I might have to check them out next time I need something done...

they should be able to handle that brake job...if they can't handle the bumper install..a shop local to that area (NoHo) can handle it..

Johnny's Auto Body, 4865 Lankershim Blvd. North Hollywood CA, 91601,
shop (818)769-3662, cell (818)212-6386, email (Johnnysautobodyinc@yahoo.com)

have had work done there myself..here's their fb page: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Johnn...3038491?ref=ts

Danny at Minicorsa works on half of the E90 M3's that track their car regularly. He used to own an E90 M3 with one dedicated track bumper and one street bumper which he switched back and forth from. He's my mechanic as well so I can vouch for his impeccable work.

I've all my installs performed at EAS, whether I sourced the items through them or myself. Never had issues and very pleasant to work with.

IMHO, with a M3 level car, it's just not worth doing it yourself or going to a mediocre shop to have them do a C/B job.
