Best place to get an M3 PPI done in London?

Hey guys.

Im from the GTA, but may be heading out to London this weekend (April 28th/29th) to look at a car. I was wondering where the best place to get a PPI done in the area would be if it comes down to that...


Thanks

I have no affiliation or experience, but Fanshawe Motors seems to be a indy shop with somewhat of a BMW specialization.

What year is the car? If it is relatively new I'd consider taking it to the dealer.

NO!!!!! Stay the hell away from fanshawe motors! The guy is a crook!
He has no mechanics license, is always high, and gouges!
I've also met a poor fellow with mild downs syndrome that they ripped off by replacing his entire suspension without his consent.!

RUN AWAY!

I have bought parts from fanshawe motors and they have excellent prices.i have never had them do any work on my car there so I cant say.
If its newer I would take it to the dealer,older not sure.i dont trust any mechanics though and do all my own wrenching for this reason.

Well, ok then. lol I'll steer clear.


qwerte, The car is an 02 M3. I usually do my own wrenching also. But I'm not 100% familiar with the e46 M3 and without a lift its always harder to check the car over the right way. Perhaps thats the best option though.
