Bearing Change in Ontario?

As the mileage on my M3 continues to climb, I'm considering having the rod bearings changed (possibly with the new Clevite bearings and ARP bolts) but this doesn't seem to be a task to simply hand over to a local mechanic.

It's beyond my abilities as a DIY, so I was wondering if any canucks in Ontario have had their bearings swapped and if so where did they have it done? Any shop recommendations?

Many thanks in advance and Happy New Year to all

Southwestern Ontario. Any reputable shops between London and Toronto are reasonable. Any recommendations or experience?

If you get a quote, please share. I'm thinking about paying a friend who's got a shop to do this. He did his oil pan gasket (which is 90% of the work) on his E90 without thinking twice and we've built many an engine but I'd like to get an idea yet.

Also thanks for bringing the new bearings to my attention.

Bimmersport in Mississauga - has actually done them, plus the use of WPC/ARP combo is standard. S54/S65/S85 all been worked on. Never seen any other shop documented to have done.

It's around 2g with parts and labour.

I'd check with Rocco at RMP motors too. They may be able to do this.
