I do think we may need a tire buster if he is just starting out that's good to learn and doing oil changes. I'm not 100% sure tho. I'll know more after the store is open up and running. Going to talk to the bank on Monday about money for the car

I had him replace my CV boots and found he used zip ties to secure my boots intead of metal ring clamps. the job was over 600 dollars and he said "dont worry about it" and refused to fix it.

Ouch! Tried to warn a few buddies about it before but no luck until they got the troubles first hand.

Just bumping this up, i spoke to the guys at Vitek's last week, they seemed very knowledgeable. I'll be taking my s54 there for a valve adjustment, and will report back.

Not a lot of active Albertans here, but thought I'd ask anyway for any updates? I've got a newer 1 Series (E82 N55) and looking for a shop to install some suspension bits next summer - rear subframe bushings, front wishbones / tension struts / sway bar as well as BMW Performance suspension kit.

Any suggestions to help narrow my search for a quality shop would be appreciated.
