Looking for DIY near Oakville

Any DIYers out there in the Oakville area (or Mississauga, Burlington)?
I'd be up for helping working on common issues.

Live in downtown TO, but travel to Oakville (Burloak/QEW) frequently. I'd love to come down to see anyone needing E30 help/can share garage space.

Crankshaft position sensor

Anyone in the west-end have experience replacing the crankshaft position sensor in an E46? It's a fairly simple job but just getting to it is a pain...
I'd be willing to pay $20-$30 if anyone is willing to help out

Dude I'm like right in the same area as you! Any pix of your ride or when was it last on the road?


No experience with e46 stuff lol, I usually go to Bimmersport and let them handle it.

E46 owner here. I'm in Mississauga, work in Oakville. Send me a PM if you need an extra set of hands. I'll be doing my entire cooling system soon, when it gets warmer.

Looks like I'm a little late to the party, but if anyone needs DIY help, I'd love to lend it. Live in a condo now and am really itching to wrench.

Experience with E36/E39 and tons of other cars (everything from Hondas to Fiats ).

Well, you may not be so late after all. I have an e30 with some serious issues, which may require help/ a second opinion...

I have always been pretty big into DIY. I run www.rtsauto.com as a hobby and this is a little info page about work I have been doing on my E30 over the winter:

http://www.r3vlimited.com/board/showthread.php?t=287575

Currently in the Brampton area in the short term, but I am often in the North York area (have two car garage there), Mississauga seeing family and often in the Burlington area as that is where I grew up.

Always down to meet other DIY enthusiasts and help out, PM me or text me at 2898881707.
