just picked my car up for bearings from IS Motorsports.
Ian did a great job. My bearings were actually in decent condition but better safe than sorry I guess.

Ian also fixed a boost leak among other things. Top notch place; I couldn't be happier. Can't wait to see what the shop evolves to now with the extra space.

Good to hear! I just spoke with Ian on the phone a few days ago. He said he just finished up a supercharger car. Must have been yours.

I'm dropping my car off this Thursday for BE/ARP's. I'm at 60k. How many miles on yours and can you post a pic?

yep, that's me. I also did BE/ARPs. only have 48K miles
I couldn't tell you if I felt a difference because of the rod bearings but I definitely felt a difference with the work that Ian did to fix my vacuum leaks.

There's another E92 there right now getting bearings done as well. Feels like he's doing 1-2 per week at this pace.

I didn't take great pics, but here they are

Yup, he's doing mine right now. Looks like he's going back to back to back with our 3 cars 😉

Picked up my car from Ian last night after he did the BE rod bearings and ARP bolts. He did a good job and is a super nice guy. I would highly recommend him.

The pics of my bearings are posted on the official S65 bearing thread. 2011 with 60k and I'm glad I did them!

Who owns the other Alpine White E90 with the black roof and black 359's? I parked next to you and our cars are IDENTICAL.
