I'm looking for a aftermarket parts distributor and installer in socal. I am specifically looking to purchase and install some UM parts. Anyone have any prior experience with a tuner who's genuinely enthused about these cars and not just a mechanic who happens to distribute parts?
i dont know where you are but there is 3 shops in vista oceanside area that i would recommend...
1.dynotech motorsports...bmw's are their specialty but they are pretty good with german cars in general and todd the owner is a cool dude...they have some super douchy employees not gonna name names but todd is rad.
2.oceanside motorsports, again somewhat bmw oriented but jake is a tech there and he helped my homie cole build a mk2 cabby...and they did air install for a mk4 recently
(sorry for all the bmw specialty places i just converted to vw, ive had 4 bmws..2 e30s an e21 and an e34)
and last bu8t not least..SAE motorsports..this is a new shop but its opened and run by alot of the guys from the recently decest group5 motorsports....they should be able to help you out...will and chris are great dudes
