My car is now in the care of Can-Am champion Horst Kroll who was more than excited to work on my car. We'll see what he finds wrong....

my buddy had bavarian do all his work on his 97 m3 including euro swap. They seem to always have a shop full of race cars in progress.

i'm only having him diagnose the problems on my car. I made it strictly clear that no work was to be done. Once I know what's wrong, I'll start calling around to find the best person to fix those problems. I just wanted to take it to someone close by, and this guy is no more than 10 mins away from me, that's all...

Is Horst still around?

I thought the Province busted him many years ago due to 'less than straight" business practices?

There is a used car dealer over on Ellesmere (German dude) who was fined by Revenue Canada, and the dealers association for "cooking books".
He's still in business selling used Porsches, Bimmers, and such...it's not the guy on Eglinton...can't remember either name...

Shiet, but I do recall all of them racing at Mosport in Can-Am, and other events...must be gettin' old...

BTW, what the matter with your car? Too manycrazy mods without proper co-ordination/installation or just too old?

ok i was hoping thats what you were doing... just don't let him touch your car i got 'stuck'(convenience) going to him cuz he is around the corner from me... now i would rather let a deaf/blind/dumb person work on my car then let him near it

just warning you not to use him

Ok I have my car back now, and a list of the things that are wrong with it. Holst also confirmed for me that he doesn't feel my supercharger needs a rebuild (which is one of the many things I felt was wrong with the car) so that makes me feel a whole heck of a lot better now. He did say though that my car was a blast to drive, and was really impressed with the kit motronix and I pieced together. So now I've got to start shopping around for a mechanic who can do all the repairs for me. Oh yeah, Holst didn't charge me a cent even though he spent two days examining my car

He probably burned out your clutch and tires doing donuts and burnouts

Can you share the list of things wrong? I'm quite curious.
