Good shop to do the RBs.

Can anyone suggest any good shop to do the RBs?

Either around

Indianapolis, Indiana

or

Madison, Wisconsin?

I found a few European specific shops in Indy but no way of knowing if they can carry out a work like RBs swap.

Thanks in advance!

Premiere Auto Sports off shadeland and 465.

Then there's Autobahn off 37 south of greenwood.

Either ones are excellent choices, although I'm friends with the guys at Premiere, they are my go to guys.

If you're considering having it done in Cincinnati, I've used M Works Garage. Been had it done about 23K miles ago.

It was years ago but I think it was like $2000. I'd definitely call and ask though, price is probably different now.

Interesting, didnít know they did BMW local. How many RBís have hey done on these cars? Anybody on here get it done there?

I had mine done about 2 years ago at Motorwerks in commerce. Put in VAC / ARP bolts. BE werenít avail at the time, but so far with 20k miles, daily driving and night parking in 2 winters and spotless OCIís every 5k, I feel pretty confident in the work.

I did, and im not the first to have them done there. So far my car is doing great on BE bearings/arp bolts installed by Vast, and my rbs were pretty shit but not completely shitted out, but tbh only put a few hundred miles since i was out of state for a month.

haven't been to motorwerks myself.

Vast was able to get the full Rod bearings job, engine mounts, r/s valve cover gasket, l/r strut/mounts covered under my warranty on my first service ticket with them, i just paid a little bit extra to get be/arp hardware which was fantastic. As it turned out my M3 was quite lucky to be plagued with "oil consumption" issues .

Also, their prices on engine oil for our cars is great, at least Redline 5w50/10w60 is $2 less a quart less thru them im not sure what else they'll sell because i only asked about redline. maybe ill ask them what else they sell. i dont pay tax there and im in the area often.

So far, im quite satisfied with Vast, more than happy to rec them to other m3 owners in SE michigan to get rb job done. As i'm relatively new to ann arbor, its also really nice to avoid the completely useless local con-artist "euro" indy shop and the completely and utterly useless local dealer.

VAST sounds promising.

I had mine done at Motorwerks with VAC extra clearance / ARP. Been 25K miles since, daily driving year round including parking outside thru the frigid winters. UOA has been rock solid a 0 to 1 PPM.

I have a friend who is looking for RB update - which shop would you avoid? you can also PM me.

Thanks!

which shop near A2 do you not recommend? I have a few friends who are closer to A2, and any insight on problematic shops would be helpful.

Thanks!
