What about EAS? They're a great supporter of this forum, and while I've yet to stop by, many people on the forum speak highly of their work.

I've had work done at Supreme Power (stubborn side gill install) and Status Autowork (Eisenmann Sport exhaust, matte black M3 emblem), and I was very happy with the end result of both. I was especially impressed with the level of service I received at Status. They drove my OEM exhaust back to my house in their shuttle Prius, instead of having me load it back up in my trunk. I certainly plan to give them more of my business in the future.

Best deals on tires!

Tire Central in San Gabriel definitely needs to be on the list as well... best deals on tires bar none. Cheaper than Tire Rack's prices, even w/ tax included!

I just had my Z4M aligned at West End, and my car felt a lot better after Darin's work.

I was sitting in the car the whole time while Darin performed his magic, but from what I saw, Darin used only hand tools, not some state of the art laser equipment...superior work and experience, highly recommended.

It was $90 too....I think my sister spent more than that last time she aligned her Fit at a local Honda dealer.
