Just blew the Power steering out of my 2001 7 series. It was a little sluggish for a while, then ker pow*uzi*. Oil everywhere. I need a good mechanic to fix it this week. It can't be driven and must be towed.

I am in the Toronto King and Bathurst area, any recommendations???

Take it to RMP. Its worth travelling an extra 10 minutes, especially when you have a broken e38. Give the shop a call, 905 951 0002.

Also, you've posted in the wrong section (this is for the Z roadster/coupes) :)

I have used Autobahn Motors for 25 years. And he is just about as far away as RMP. The bummer is that he is away next week.

I am debating the towing charges, it will be the same for both. The third option is that I tow it to my house and do it myself.

Can't change the thing out in the condo. fcplm

Thanks for the heads up. Sorry for the newbie mistake.

get CAA Plus membership - under 100.00. the tow will probably cost more without it.

I wouldn't recommend Auto Trend.

@Ceeker. Why wouldn't you recommend Autotrend? Don's a good guy! They are a bit pricey but their work is top notch (at least, in my experience). Tuners don't go there because they're pretty much an OEM shop.

I have my reasons...professionally speaking. Worked in the industry for quite some time and worked where he worked some time back too.
