Pitstop on Yonge/Steeles

quite awhile ago, I went to this performance shop to get a bodykit installed and to get a custom-intake put in...

wasn't quite too happy...overcharged for bodykit install and custom cold air intake...

the bodykit install was a bit sloppy....the bumper wasn't supported properly and I ended up having to get it RE-done at another shop to get the job done right.


Just a heads up to everyone on these boards......
Personally, I recommend Autopia or Bimmersport...they really know what they're doing.

how much did they charge you for the bodykit/CAI install?

how much do other shops roughly charge for the same job?

LoL, i have a feeling the store is a front. It is always dead and when I went there once, everything is marked up to the point of non-sale.

They're crazy in there.

His name is Javid, he's aerospace engineer himself, but he's never there, he has import export business or something like that. He owns the black M5 thats usually parked in front. they actually make good money, from people that don't know much about cars and basically just wanna "pimp their rides"!

I usually just go there when I need tuner lugs, air filters or shit like that, their hours is good.

The guy is an Aerospace engineer and runs a lowclass small performance parts shop ?

Something doesnt add up here.

I think they use the shop to Launder money or hide money.

that guy is a rip off half the shit from the store like the hids n all that stuff he buys from my friends dad who imports it all from china. i went in there once to look at seats for my old bimmer cuz i worked around there the guy had 2dr 3series sport seats and tired to tell me that they are m3 seats, and he was trying to sell me on a fiberglass m3 bumper trying to tell me that his fiber glass is amazing quality that just as strong as oem lol and he was selling it for $550, fkn idiot i wanted to punch him for talking so much shit he looks and sounds like your classic used car salesman which pisses me off cuz i m in sales also so crappy sales ppl that just bullshit get on my nerves
