PJC Autoworks?

I recently heard about this shop PJC Autoworks from a friend and decided to check it out. Its located at 3290 Danforth Ave, Toronto. From what they told me they specialize in BMW's.

Im just curious if anyone knows anything more about this shop before I get work done there. They are kinda the only BMW specific shop close to me I tried to search about them but came up with nothing. So any extra info would be helpful! Thanks

Here is my quick story; Asked my lil brother to go check out the E30 at PJC since i was away. I knew it wasnt in a good condition from pictures. So my brother who doesnt know much about cars checks the car out and tells me PJC is willing to sell it certified, no need for emissions since it was 87. I thought ok if it is safetied then it must atleast run and drive from point A to B. They delivered the car to my brother where it sat till i got back. Got back 2 days after that safety had expired. Impatiently, I took the car out for a drive and I thank God Iam still alive to talk about it. Going around 40km/hr coming to a stop sign, start tapping the brakes.... brakes.... brakes... nothing... brakes nothing... figured the brakes failed i shift into 1st and ease on the clutch then tried using my e-brake.. LOL who am I kidding, e-brake was not working, ended up driving over a patch of grass that brought me to a stop.

I honestly felt like driving that car right into their shop and walking away that day. Thank God for good friends around.

The BAD about the car.
- Brake lines in the back were clamped by a vice grip.
- Only the driver side caliper was working and all others were seized.
- 2 huge holes in the ground underneath the passenger side.
- each rim had a different size tire.
- ODO meter was changed, thank God for used car package.
- E-brake not working...
- ....... and much much more.

Yes it was my fault for asking my brother who doesnt know anything about cars to get the car I was hit with the E30 rush, we knew it was bad but not that bad due to passing safety.

I apologize to everyone for not sharing my story about PJC before.

To PJC, whats goes around, WILL come around.

I guess this RMP shop your all talking about might be worth the extra drive after all.
