Have you even been to Canadian Tire on Carling? Have you ever talked to the service manager, Ralph? Do you realize that almost ALL Motorsports Club of Ottawa members bring the cars EXCLUSIVELY to CTC?
Know your facts before you assume that all Canadian Tire's are the same. Ralph and his crew know BMWs inside and out. Ralph has 3 or 4, and two of his most trusted mechanics (Phil and George) have BMWs themselves.
I would never bring my car to any other Canadian Tire, but Ralph has proven himself time and time again. Best service I've ever received.
And if you're willing to pay $5000 for a clutch job, who is really getting ripped off?
