Cool BMW Mechanic (Mississauga)

Hello fellow enthusiasts,

My 2003 325i needs some repairs (battery, breaks, burning oil, etc..)

Most of you would probably agree that the relationship between owner and mechanic should be solid. I'm looking for an honest, professional mechanic I can trust.


Please share your contact(s) if you've got'm!
Thanks very much!!

Happy driving :-)
M

Check this guy out

http://ktmmotorworks.com/

I haven't had any service done here, so I can't speak to the quality of his work, I only know him because I bought a used flywheel from him. He seemed like a good guy, and will shoot the shit about cars all day if you let him. There were only BMWs in his shop when I was there, including his E30 which has a fully built turbo m20 that was making 500hp on pump gas last year.

@dbworld4k - Thanks for the link, I was looking for a page dedicated to this!!

@cormier - Just called bimmersport.. seem professional..but slightly overpriced compared to RMP. RMP seems to be king in this decision based on reviews and price.. just wish they had a shop in Mississauga.
Thanks anyways!!

|RMP definitely has some excellent prices. I've never used them but their prices are tempting.
Having said that, the thread about RMP which mysteriously disappeared was scary.

Worth a try.

I'm pretty sure it was a bogus post, it was from a "NEW" user with 1 post.

The most honest shop I know is Ivas Automotive in Mississauga, I use them all the time, so do many of my customers/friends/family. Prices are great, but most importantly they are honest! Want do work that does not need to be done, and if they can't handle the job they won't take it and fu$k up.
