Here is the list of very good E46M mechanic near you...

2) EAS/European Auto Service in Anaheim. They have an in house dyno.

3) Lang Racing Development in Lake Forest. He fabs, sells a S54 stroker crank (or engine), etc.

4) Auto Talent in Gardena. Last time I was there, there were a Novitec Ferrari, a Lamborghini Diablo, other very eye catching stuff.

5) Shane @ Aliso Viejo Auto Service - He has done ALL the general maintenance work on my E46M. Very good dude.

If you need a killer alignment, see West End Alignment in Gardena. If you tell him you want an aggressive Auto-x alignment + corner weighting, be prepared man for a different driving experience. That dude is amazing; hes busy so call ahead first.
I'm in Long Beach and I've also been looking for a good shop to fix up my m3 I bought a few months ago. I have to admit I'm surprised you bring your m3 to Aliso Viejo, I've been indoctrinated to think that only specialty shops can work on our cars. Do you mind sharing what kind of jobs you've had Shane do?

I'm looking for someone with reasonable rates for replacing most of the bushings on my car. Diff, fcab, motor and trans mounts etc.
