Comment: Highly recommended. Small shop works with Rogue Engineering as their second shop basically as Rogue has a very small building with limited space for installs.

I don't say this everday but they are the best shop I have ever been to; very professional, kind, and let you help with the install and watch since its only operated with two people they only work at one car at a time. I only wish they had a dynojet to complete my needs .

Address: 377 Elm Street, Stamford CT, 06902
Refrence: Dan w/ 335i
Comment: They do amazing work. Shop is setup great and is at an easy to get to, not hard to find location. The quality of work and service is also great. The only negative is that they don't allow you to go to the back where they do installs to watch. You have to wait in the waiting room or go to the Subway across the street while your car is being worked on due to policy and insurance issues. Other than that it is a great shop with great people although it would be nice to be able to watch and get involved with installs.

Reference #2: Alan w/ BMW 335i and Mini Cooper S Convertible
Comment #2: Installed my DPs, exhaust, and tune here for the 335i. Installed pulley and had oil changed on the Mini. Long drive, but totally worth it. Ralph even drove me into the city to kill time while they worked on the cars.

Big thanks to Martino Auto Concepts. Found them thanks to this thread and good words about them on some other forums. Anyone in the area needing some body work done I highly suggest getting in touch with them. Really impressive shop. Super clean and they have no problem showing it off to you. Here's a quick teaser of an install they did for me last week.

Add Bart@AutoCouture in North NJ to the list They do custom mods installs (Likes suspensions, exhausts, etc.. you name it) and their prices are reasonable. They treat your car like their own and they are very cool to deal with. Bart has an M3 himself so you know what I mean. I had my KW3 suspension installed by them and I am happy with the job. They ordered the part that was missing on my suspension and overnighted it and installed it the next day.

Hi Speed Motorsports (MrFukengruven)
Contact: 203-220-9265 (Hugh)
Address: 41 Eastern Steel Rd, Milford, CT, 06460
Reference: Griff w/M3, Jon w/M3, Kay w/1-Series M, Luiz w/335, Justin w/E30 M
Comment: **An official NASA Tech Center** Hi Speed Motorsports does absolutely top-notch installs and work. Having raced in SPEED World Challenge Touring Car Series a few years back, HSM is known for building front-running track/race cars as well as sleek and unique street cars. The company started in 1995. Anywhere from roll-cage fabrication to a simple exhaust install, HSM does it all. They currently have three BMW E36's race cars in house and an E46 330 race car that compete in NASA German Touring Car Series and two of them are painted Green (known as "The Green Monsters"). HSM does normal maintenance as well and the labor rates are the best around ($85/hr) and you ARE able to view the work being done to your automobile. If you walk a short distance down the street, there is a Pilot/Wendy's where you can grab a nice lunch or to Dunkin Donuts to get a coffee across the street.

Can add Karosserie in King of Prussia to the list. I haven't had my car there yet going this month but they have been an extreme help and a pleasure to deal with. Doing a euro bumper conversion, touching up chips as well as lip and diffuser install for me so far, my list keeps growing They are also a Vörsteiner dealer Their website is www.karosserie.com will post pics of the work when completed.

Comment: Installed my Dimisa tips here. Great attention to detail and are very professional.
Website: http://www.custom-mufflers.com

They may be quite good at installing mufflers, but their paint job sucks big time its a joke. they are very expensive (>2x Maaco quote) to paint a trunk. the paint contain rock chips embedded in them along with variety of defects to the point that i wish i had taken it to Maaco. the female owner was also very rude despite i offer them more money to get it right (no other body shop would touch my trunk after they painted it).

Im looking for a shop to do a custom exhaust job around the north jersey area. Does anyone have any recommendations for which of these shops would be best for that task. Good quality metal and bends are important.
