No, it is purely meant for good recommendations, since we had some bad experiences with previous threads.

EVERYONE knows how picky I am with my car! A Little overboard most say! That being said... The only place that is allowed to touch my car is RMP Motors cuz they actually fix your car cuz they know what they are talking about, and they know what they are doing... plus they are careful. You won't get your car back until it is 100%!!!

RMP Motors fixes things PROPERLY the first time, unlike some other shops I have been to, and RMP is not expensive either. Plus they are quick, but don't get me wrong they don't rush things!

RMP Motors for teh win!

Im gonna have to say RMP all the way, I have had some "mistakes" from other shops fixed at RMP + I have had alot of regular maintenance done, Ive had everything from Plugs to bodywork done at RMP and I havent had one point to complain about, Service is GREAT, work is done Clean and Quick, minimal wait time to get in, Very Professional shop and its a CLEAN shop..
anyways I could talk about all the good points of RMP for about 15 more pages but ill just stop now and say

RMP FTW !!!!
Its Worth the drive to Bolton

propr'one 08-15-2006 04:33 PM

I'm not gonna post anything about any other shop than RMP. Its the only place my car has ever been, and the only place my car will ever go.
-Rocco's prices are great
-He is not only a certified BMW technician, he worked for BMW as a tech for almost as many years as i've been alive
-I've never had a problem with his work,
-He, although being very busy with other work, always has time (and patience) to answer questions that i have, (often more than once, since i really dont know much about cars)
-He often stays later than the shop is open to finish a job if necessary.

-what i love most about RMP, is that both mark and rocco treat EVERY car like a showcar. It doesn't matter if you bring in a brand new m5, or a beater, he'll do the job right, the first time, with no problems or surprises. The shop is clean, the tools are in order. Rocco must have jacked up thousands of e36's in his life, yet when putting my car on the hoist he'll check everything twice, then check it again. Closing your hood, he'll check for loose tools, and verify everything is in order twice, then check again.

Some of the work i had done at RMP includes
-new clutch, CDV delete. (on that visit, rocco checked the torquing of my bearings, noticed one was VERY loose, and tightened it for me. He also topped off my tranny fluid, and final drive fluid. He recommended i start looking for some brake pads, as mine were getting worn. He scanned my car, read the fault codes for the CEL and the SRS light. I'm sure there was more, but i dont remember it. And the most fantastic part was, he checked over my car without me having to ask. He understands i'm not a mechanic, and when i come in with a problem, i'm not implying that that's the only problem on the car.)

Since then, i've also had rocco swap a starter for me, and install my euro headlights, and angel eyes.

I'm one happy and loyal RMP customer, and think everyone would be if they'd give rocco and mark a try.

Keep up the good work*th-up*

There are two shops that I'd recommend u to go:

1. RMP Motors in Bolton, www.rmpmotors.com, talk to Rocco, an excellent mechanic. He'll hook u up as soon as u enter the shop. Just name what need to be done and it's gonna be done in no time. Props to Rocco and Mark @ RMP Motors. Trust me, it's worth the drive to Bolton! This is where the magic happens...

2. Cross Avenue Auto in Oakville. Great guys, the lineup is too long there, so it's really hard if u need somethin done quick. Talk to Sam Nessan. He knows what he's doin too. And most importantly, they FIXED the problem i've posted here not too long ago w/ my car but I guess the mod deleted the thread. *thmbsdwn* And I heard someone else got involved in the Exact same problem after Ive posted.

After all, you guys should EXPERIENCE the shops yourselves instead of judging directly through these recommendations.

You could probably make some cash selling those. You might have a lot of buyers. :)

Fe9L 08-17-2006 12:08 AM

I have posted before..but i will post again just to make things more clear....

This goes out to everyone that HASNT been to a shop yet...and please..whoever went to any other store dont comment because in the end, this thread will also be closed..and everyone is tired of that...

Ok...if you havent been to a shop yet and you are looking around..just ask your self....who here on max, has the best cars? my asnwer to this will be, people such as the moderators, because they have enough knowledge, and more mature, therefore their cars are done properly, second people that you could see have the sickest comments and replies that are full of knowledge...look those kind of people up..and you will know where they go...and honestly..lol...MOST of them go to the place i mentioned up there..if you dont know the place..then il tell you the first letter..its..
..BIMMERSPORT..

Since i got my first BMW in 97, i only trust 2 people to work on my cars and send customers to; Dave Tomassetti (aka Motronix) and Charlie@Bimmersport...

Mikeee46coup 08-27-2006 12:34 PM

RMP gets my vote, Rocco & Mark are the only mechanics i'll take my car to, I live in Kitchener, and it's worth the drive everytime *th-up*

rendered 08-30-2006 10:39 PM

RMP is #1 in my books, Rocco and Mark have done more for me than all of the BMW dealers in the GTA put together that my car has been to.

I really wish BMW canada would of gave me the choice to get my warranty work done at RMP rather than the dealership. I would of felt a lot better, and it would of been done right the first time by RMP.

Awesome guys, pro's at what they do.

Thanks Rocco and Mark at RMP!

2002guy 08-31-2006 09:11 PM

i recommed M-Tricks Autosports its in Toronto. 416-531-8609
the only people i will trust to touch my car and its a classic.

M-Tricks in on bloor and symington on the south side and cool 1 is in behind M-Tricks at the back.

talentone 09-01-2006 06:41 AM

Most shops do not.

A good shop will provide quick and efficient service on the spot and they will make sure you don't have to bring it back which is great in my books.

A great shop will stay late depending on the problem to make sure it gets repaired properly and same day.

The bmw dealerships on the other hand are a bunch of hacks so they need to give you a loaner car and send you on your way. so when they screw up 5 times on the repair, they don't have to worry about giving the car back to you same day. and they call you 3 days later to tell you the car is ready. while the 2 extra days were full of numerous screwups, and your car sitting somewhere in the back lot not being worked on. Its so true, I've seen this happen to my car numerous times at certain dealers.

Ital_325i 09-05-2006 04:03 PM

Bimmersport is the place to go. Charlie has always been fair, with great prices and prompt with my car.

Although Ive never had service done at RMP, I have met Rocco, and he seems like a very knowledgable guy with BMW's. If I wasn't already a devoted customer of Charlie's, Id probably drive the extra bit to see Rocco.

bimmer325 09-06-2006 09:33 AM

I go to bruno of racing king for parts... Best price you ever going to find.

Bimmerized 09-07-2006 04:04 PM

I have had amazing experiences with Bimmersport!! I just wish he had a shop in London where I live!!

Bimmersport for life!

My experience has been with RMP Motors 905-951-0002

Rocco is very knowledgeable, honest and polite. He has tons of experience with these cars and can do everything from maintenance to serious tuning. It's really nice to find a guy you can trust and with a high attention to detail.

flawless528 10-03-2006 11:28 PM

i need a few things done, think i'll try both of them next week just to see how they do work...i'm sure i'll be more than happy with either, after all, they're not stealerships!

Gmas 10-12-2006 02:34 PM

I just took my car to RMP this week to have my M3 CAB's and IE subframe bushings installed. Place was clean, both guys (Rocco and Mark?) were friendly, and they did an excellent job on my car - could not have been happier with the service I got.

It sounds like you can't really go wrong with either RMP or Bimmersport. I went with RMP because I called both, and RMP just happened to be cheaper.
