Looking for a good shop in Socal

Hey guys,

I'm looking for a reputable shop on the west side that can install side vents (try as I may, I couldn't get my originals off), replace the M3 logo, and drill out the front plate holes wide enough to make the bumper plugs fit on my car. Going forward, I'd also like a place to work on any suspension, exhaust, and body upgrades that I plan on doing on the M3 as well.

Does anyone have any experience with or recommendations for a good shop that does this kind of work on the west side?

Let me know, and thanks in advance.

--Amer

Believe me, I didn't know where to start and was scared I'd damage something, but after reading this thread I didn't break a sweat.

You guys definitely have a good rep on these forums, Tom. If I don't find anything closer to the West Side / South Bay area, I'll definitely consider going to EAS.

I second kevin. Been going to STATUS/VIPSTATUS for 4 yrs now. No problems what so ever. Even if there was a problem, they'll take care of it until you are satisfied. They are right behind Toyota Corporate on Van Ness.
