In NY-

Autobahn Centre
Central Ave
Albany, NY

Chris is the owner, they tend to specialize in BMW/Porsche/MB.

I’ve taken a few BMWs to them and they’ve done a good job.

Jon Vo (owner)
Specialty - BMW/Porsche/Lotus maintenance, track prep, fabrication

Specific to E46 M3 - Jon has done my subframe reinforcement (Redish), rod bearings, vanos, cooling system, alignment and corner balance. We are also working on a SpecE46 racer together - full cage and safety, suspension setup, etc.

Been going here for years, always very happy with their work. Great people and very easy to work with.
