I've been going to Shinzo Auto Service for 15 years. He's a Japanese Master mechanic, and works on everything from regular DD's, to modded Skylines, Supras, etc. I won't let anyone else touch my cars. He is in the Irvine Auto Center.

Really appreciate the suggestion. I'll stop next time I'm in the OC area. Anyone know of any mechanics in the SGV area?

I believe I've went to him before and got a quote on the door locks, and he gave me a quote as high as the dealership, so I'm not sure If I want to go back.

if your in garden grove or in the surrounding areas, hit up best care auto (714)-722-3706 and ask for Dennis. I refer all my friends & family's cars to them. Whether its repair or performance work, they do a good job & reasonably priced.

How much lex mastertech quote u? Their price usually cheaper than dealer. But sometimes dealer can give u a deal too.

Get the parts first then go to Vinam @ Westminster, lowest around on labor. Plan to drop the car in the morning and pick it up in the afternoon.
