Rod Bearings Vancouver

Hi everyone,

Has anyone had rod bearings replaced in Vancouver? I called CG Motorsports and they won't do it.

Any other ideas?

Thanks!

Give RG Racing Greed a call, ask for Tommy (owner) or Lowell. I know Lowell have done a couple of m3 bearing jobs.

Haven't gotten a hold of RG yet.

Nixon won't do it either.

Any idea why BMW specialty shops like CG and Nixon won't touch it? Curious what they had to say about it.

My guess is they don't believe there is a rod bearing issue so they don't want to take the risk on it, ie. they'll be on the hook if anything happens to the motor after they worked on it.
