Need a local shop to work on 1976 2002

Hey fellas,

What a good shop to take my 76 2002 to to get some work done on it.

Needs to be a shop that knows these cars and can be trusted to do a good job all at an affordable rate.

Provide some input folks.

Thanks.

Bavarian Motors (www.bavarianmotors.ca)
Speak with Steve Gailits.
He's worked on them when they were almost new. He's owned several too and races an E21.
I know of at least 5 other '02's that he services. Saw a silver 2002 there yesterday.

located on Woodbine Ave. just south of 14th Ave. in Markham.
7634 Woodbine Avenue
Markham Ontario L3R 2N2
Canada

Tel: (905) 479-1769

I second the recommendation of Steve Gailits.

Stance Factory has also done a great job with my 2002.

hey Smitty, just got off the phone with Stance Factory, they said they dont want to work on these cars anymore.

Looks like it might be going to Steve.

EUROJAPAN next door (literally) to Bavarian will do what you need. Great rates too.

+5 on Bavarian Motors.
Steve has forgotten more about 2002s than most other mechanics know.
That's worth the premium price in my mind.
