LOL Hey Mod, you need to change the title of this thread to "Which shop to take your BMW to IN THE TORONTO AREA"
I just read through all 18 preceeding pages and with the exception of a couple Calgary body shop reccomendations every single shop is within a couple hundred km of Toronto downtown... (with 2 shops that seem to have VERY loyal customers... Next time I'm in TO with my car I'll consider them both a must see destination!)
I'm thinking there MUST be decent shops elsewhere in the country ;-)
I saw requests (unanswered) for shops in Vancouver and in Ottawa...
I have some experience with only one specialist BMW shop in Ottawa, Duss Brothers. Rudy knows BMWs inside out and backwards. He is good, albeit a bit expensive ...and a word of caution... do NOT mention performance modifications or parts! He's a hard core pureist and will lecture you severely... might even grab a ruler and rap you on the knuckles. Since they've been around a long time and have a very loyal following the shop is very busy and you'll need to make an appointment well in advance.
(center of the universe syndrome rears it's head again, but I'll speak up for those of us from outside the Big Smoke) :-D
