I need a bmw mechanic asap!

So I've been neglecting my drivetrain for quite a while now, maybe a little over a year, only because I was lazy and cost, but recently the issues have been getting worse and worse with my car, so I figure I better take it to a specialist soon before something really bad happens. Knowing this day would eventually come, I planned for it and began saving many months ago, as well as got a better job to help with the costs of my project car, so I'm very prepared. What I need is, the names and phone numbers of any good mechanic who is comfortable AND knowledgable with the E36 BMW, *AND* forced induction. I wont settle for one or the other because I've already gone through being turned away from many shops before due to the custom work done on my engine. As well, money is not an issue as long as the shop will get it right the first time and doesn't guess. What I really aim for is to build a relationship between the mechanic and my car, so that I can continue bringing it to the same person every time and not have anyone else work on it.
Guys, please help me out and hook me up with someone good so I can get her into a shop this wednesday and participate once more in some max meets come spring! Thanks!

p.s. I just go my lambo door hinge kit in the mail today.....just a small project titan update too while I'm at it

Maybe give these guys a call.
Just a suggestion...
Ask for Rob; not sure if they can squeeze you in so fast or if they have FI experience, but it's worth a try.

http://www.autotrend.net/

If not, then try Motronix in Woodbridge.

Haven't used Motorsport but I can back up Autotrend.net as a suggestion. Broadview and Bloor. The owner, Don, is EXTREMELY knowledgable and will explain everything in detail to you as to what work needs to be done. Their work is always first rate and they take care of their customers.

Thanks for all the help. I'm taking my car into a shop near my house run by an ex-porsche and bmw racer to have him simply diagnose what's wrong with my car. Once he gives me the list of what's wrong, i'll start calling around to all the places listed above and then decide who I want to do the actual wrenching on my car.

I can second that, Steve has lots of racing experience and was telling me about FI, so i assume he has some knowledge
