Getting mods installed in Bay Area

Hi Guys,

I am a total noob when it comes to modding, so please bear with me.
I want to start small, so I am initially thinking of just installing a Vorsteiner Type II diffuser (E92 M3) and maybe an exhaust.

I live in the Bay Area, CA. Where is the best location to go to, to get this installed? I am not really a DIY kind of guy ...

For the exhaust, I know there are a million threads on here - so I am reading them and watching the videos.

Thanks!

You could check out your Regional Forums for some install shop.

If you're in the Bay, Sonic MS is the best for prices and service IMHO.

cacofonix,

Feel free to PM me or give us a call (925-609-4559) and we will be happy to assist you with all your M3 needs

We usually have 4-5 M3s at the shop daily with different mods so you can check it out as well as listen to some different exhausts

Where else can you see 3 M3s sitting with BBS FIs and other goodies




Aleks.

Alekshop is legit. He's done pretty much all the work on my E90 M3 and supplied a lot of parts for my buddy in Washington (E92 M3). Aleks is a great guy to work with and he knows his stuff. His neighbor is a detail shop so you can kill two birds at once if you fancy...

No one touched my E36 M3 other than Phaedrus SF. See John or Dale.
