Question Nor Cal (San Jose) aftermarket shops?

Looking for recommendation on a reputable shop to buy and install an exhaust system. Anyone?

Edge Motor Works in Dublin. Best pricing & high Yelp ratings. They won't rape you. They specialize on BMWs and Minis. I have an appointment with them to redo my KW v3 set-up at a reasonable price. http://www.yelp.com/biz/edge-motorworks-dublin-3

I also heard Borelli Motorsport in San Jose is another reputable shop.

I've seen too many suspension horror stories on cars that have been to Sonic. With that said, you can't really install an exhaust wrong.

Sonic is good, dealt with them before for mounting lip, diffuser, and balancing/mounting tires.
