I want to SoundsGood in Coquitlam on the advice of Orgasm_Donor

They were able to install my alarm quickly and cleanly. Great professional job, courteous service. Offered insight into additional improvements I could make.

They were also able to translate the installation manual apparently written by Tic Tac's people. Bonus points for that one.

Plan on being a repeat customer. Kudos

North American Engine and Transmission, on Peardonville road near the 31000 block. In Abbotsford
I took my car to another place first to get the engine swap done and they had it for 3 weeks (PDS Auto in abby aswell(do not go there)) and had only taken the old motor out. After they couldn't make anymore excuses I called North American and they towed it there for free and had it done in just Two days. They did a awsome job for a good price. Will definitely go there again

I went to Muffler Man to resolve my exhaust knocking today and the man did not charge me a thing.

From the moment i got there to the moment i left, i was never in doubt that these guys were legit. Unlike Quiet muffler and Brakes, these guys were tremendously friendly and i cannot say enough for their service.

The asian looking dood helped me, i forgot to ask for him name.

Since he was such a nice guy, I drove there the next day, and he fixed my flat for free!


Pricing on tire sales are good too...I later bought a set of rear tires there for my MR2.

Great service on tire installation. Courteous and efficient. Came to my house so saved me waiting for hours at a shop.

Any recommendations on a shop that does engine rebuilds on domestic trucks (GM Truck)?

The truck consumes an excessive amount of oil, so possible engine rebuild.

Thanks.

Pacific Driveline (Transmission specialists) on 6941 E. Hastings street (Near SFU), and Beside the Firestone.



The owners are brothers and are honest guys.

I had transmission shops telling me my transmission was toast, etc.

Gave it one last try, found Pacific Driveline, and they found out a spring was broken. Replaced it, with new oil/gasket/filter for a solid price.

I will definitely use these guys in the future, whether I am lazy to replace my own tranny oil, or to refer friends/family.

Z-Tune Motorsports in Burnaby: specialize in Nissan 300ZX, Skyline, G35 and 240 tuning, but really anything Nissan or Infiniti. Great young guys who love their job, and they're always fair. Worked on my Skylines and my President.

West Coast Alignment on Powell in Van: Had a frame alignment done on my President; never seen my kind of car before, was no issue. Special bays that don't require them to jack up the car, so low cars are welcome.

Very low rates.

$40 for oil change. Includes complete inspection + tire rotation + fluid top-up. It's $40 dollars out-the-door price.

They work on all makes, all models, and they're doors are open Sundays and open late on request.
