I need to do change my head gasket on my 92 , 325i so I have to machine the head, can someone recommend to me a shop in the west end of the GTA?

Finch and Dufferin (80 Vanley Crescent) The guy's name is Graham, he's very reputable. This guy is amazing. Does everything. Porting, boring, welding, resurfacing.

something like 150$-200$ depends on the head. Not 100% sure on the price.
