+1 for Elite! They do great work.

They're located right next to Autofashion, off Miramar.

Can anyone recommend at good auto paint shop/mechanic in San Diego area that would be able to paint brake calipers? I can probably do myself but don't want the hassle nor have the tools or the garage to do so, wouldn't mind paying a hundred bucks if a "professional" could do it for me. Thanks in advance.

My brother and I took his GS to Elite Service Center to have some suspension work done. Three words to describe this place, clean, courteous and professional!

Highly recommended

Another recommendation for RNZ Conceptz in Miramar. They just put coilovers and press-in bushings on my car. They did a great job, were very communicative about the work and had a decent price.

Thanks for the helpful input guys. Does Elite do muffler/exhaust upgrades at competitive cost? TIA.

Elite gave me a nutty quote for doing coilovers, and told me they're "not really the place" for aftermarket work. Go figure.

RNZ Conceptz Miramar, behind K1, PPE header install. he's done about 20... took only three hours.

he's done all the work on my IS-F springs, alignment, etc.

Default Any good shops near La Jolla/ SD?

I recently discovered a weird noise coming from my rear wheel well. I just recently came down to SD for school and don't know of any shops to bring my car to. A lot of shops don't take cars that are lowered. Any suggestions??

I second Elite. I had a very good experience with them. I'm pretty sure they won't have any problem dealing with lowered cars, T have a pretty low NSX, and I've seen it on their lift.

a little bit of a drive for you but monty at LEX TEK in national city is great. has been specializing in lexus for almost 20 years.....also the owner of a beautiful 06 LS430 and you can tell from the mint condition of his car that he plays very close attention to detail.
