Default Shops in Charlotte, NC (RACP Reinforcement)

Finally tackling the RACP - welding on the Redish plates and the interior reinforcement. I'm looking for a place that does a really nice job and has tackled the job before. I would post in the sub-forum but it's not very busy. I was looking for any recommendations for a reputable shop that people have experience with. Currently looking at Bravo 4 autowerks but I don't have anything to go off of except google reviews.

Any ideas would be appreciated

I would take it to Matt over at Euro Mpire.
Super nice guy and does meticulous work.

Oh and I applaud you for calling it what it is...RACP reinforcement...the subframe is just fine!

Oh good to know!
While I don't have experience with EuroMpire yet, I have been in discussion with him about sending my car to them. Thus far, I have been really happy with their communication and what they have said over the phone/text. I am sure they can get your RACP reinforced just fine. I am going to have them redo my CSL airbox conversion wiring. I'm at the point where I am tired of messing with it and would rather just pay someone to get my car back up and running. It's looking like my car will be towed to them from SC, over the weekend.

This is good to know, Iíll keep them in mind my next service.

Everyone in the area recommends Eurowise, but I havenít been too impressed with them with my two visits.

Speaking of Charlotte, we all still need to catch up at some point. I'm new to the area but only know a handful of M owners.

I'm bringing my M3 down from VA soon. I'd be game to make a pit stop.

New to the area as well, would definitely love an M meetup! I'm near Mooresville/Cornelius but am up for a drive.

Well, sometime next week (likely Monday) my car will be with EuroMpire, so if anyone wants to grab a drink in the surrounding area when I drop it off or when I pick it back up after the CSL conversion, just let me know.

We should definitely pick a equidistant location and have a meet up for beverage of preference :-)
