If you need a body shop head to Uni-Body Collision in Mississauga, right near Dixie / 401 (Pearson Airport). Their website is www.unibodycollision.ca.

They are BMW specialists, along with Audi, VW, Porsche and Mercedes. They've always done top quality body work for me and my friends who I've referred many times.

It's a no-bull**** shop, they tell it like it is and they are really honest with what needs to be done for a proper job, and they have a lifetime warranty on their work.

It's a brand new shop, nicest body shop I've ever seen. I've always dealt with the manager, Rich (he's a great guy who goes out of his way to help) and I believe they are long time partners with Techmax.

I just visited Autobahn East (just google it) autobahneast.ca/

and Mark simply did amazing job!! He fixed my A/C where no one else could found a problem.

Trust me I brought my car to many shops include several BMW dealerships and they couldn't even locate the problem.

Mark spent almost an hour to inspect every single detail and finally found a problem.

I ordered a part from bimmerspecialist and got fitxed it today.

It's been 2 years of summer driving without proper A/C. (cold air front the middle vent, and rest of them blows mixed cold and hot, My temp control didn't work at all)

It turns out that "heater valve" was the problem.

If you live near ajax, you guys are so lucky to have him nearby!

Once again Thank you Mark!!!

Its a one man show and he always takes his time and does one time fix. never patches anything and is honest. His volume is crazy and its worth a wait to get in. I can appreciate why and how he gets booked up very quickly

exactly. He never rushes and takes as much as time he needs regardless how many cars need to be fixed behind the schedule.

He is a great man!

I took my '91 535i to mark at Autobahn East recently. Again, nothing but good things to say. A very honest man, does amazing work and at a very reasonable price can't say enough good things about his shop!!!

Oh Mark is a great guy!

Full of honesty and you can see what he is doing while you are waiting which is very important for some of you.

Just going to pitch in here - I've had my car for about two and half years, and its been serviced at Bimmersport for the last year or so. Charlie and his crew have always done an excellent job on my car. I've had -

-Many oil and filter changes
- H and R suspension kit (shocks/struts) installed
- AC repair and fill up
- Replaced control arms, bushings etc
- Lots more to come I'm sure.

Always done in time, fair prices, and excellent service. Def cannot go wrong with the guys at Bimmersport!

Shop for new model bmw

Hey guys,
So I recently purchased a used 2007 bmw 328xi with 45,000km on the clock. I have been looking for a local shop to take it to as the first service cost $400.00+!!!! In looking at a couple shops I've noticed a lot of photos of older model bmws. I was wondering if you guys could recommend a shop that is skilled in new model bmws? Currently I live in Thornhill but my old mechanic was at 401 Dixie Nissan so I am happy to drive a bit to get good service.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Many Thanks
