Complete car customization shops in the Northeast?

Anyone have any recommendations for a COMPREHENSIVE car shop. A place that will do body mods, tuning, electronics, etc all in one place?

I have found two so far:

1. Eastside Motoring in Waltham, MA (very mixed reviews)

2. After FX Customs in Stamford CT generally good reviews)

Obviously looking for a place that works on high end cars

Thanks.

Luxury Details in Framingham, they installed an escort 9500ci custom radar install in the mirror in my M when i had it.


They also had a Ferrari 458 in the bay when they where working on mine.

Turner Motorsport is the place to go. They do everything from oil changes to fabricating/installing performance upgrades. A buddy of mine is friends with the owner and highly recommends them. They are a die-hard BMW facility.

In terms of local tuning and performance Turner or Bren Tuning come to mind. Kaizen tuning is definitely capable of that and the cosmetic as well. They focus primarily on GTR's, but they seem to do quality work and their shop is huge.

In terms of audio, I suggest looking at Sound in Motion in Allston. They do some amazing work.

What's the scope of things you are looking to do?

Sound in Motion in Allston is also great for custom high class radar/laser detector and jammer installs!

All great choices, but again, each place is specialized. One place does performance tuning, another electronics, another body work, etc. Is there a place in the Northeast that is anything like West Coast Customs (maybe not to that degree), that can truly do it all, and do it well?

In terms of a top, tier 1 shop that does it all, it seems the closest might be Auto Couture Motoring (ACM) in northern New Jersey.

They are on par with EAS, IND, etc in terms of capability.

If you are planning a major project, it may make sense to drop the car off down there for a week or so and let them take care of it for you. Then you can use the local shops for any issues with the specific upgrades...
