Default Need a car inspection in San Diego Metro

Hello,

I am interested in an E46 wagon that's sitting on a used car lot. The dealer will not allow it to travel for a PPI. Any recommendations for a mechanic who could perform an inspection on site and test drive it? It doesn't even have to be a mechanic, just someone who is competent with E46's. I appreciate all input.

What area of San Diego is the lot in? I'm sure there are forum members around if Kev is unavailable.
