Nothing AT ALL wrong now but it's good to have a plan!
Thanks friends and I'll see you around the forums!
My brother opened a shop this past January. It's him and a buddy of his. Both got their automotive education at UTI. Both have experience working at independent auto shops over the past 10 years. My LGT had a ringland failure and they wound up doing a new short block, injectors, pump, timing kit, oil pump, ocv's, put in a new PW TMIC, STi up, CNT dp, new cbe, etc... Let's just say they got real familiar really quick with the Legacy and the little nuances of Subaru
You can give them a call at 847-496-5754...my brother's name is Ivan.
They are in Rolling Meadows right by the Arlington Heights Race Track (horse track). They are a small shop as they are just getting started, so you'll get personal attention. You're also guaranteed to have a professionally trained tech working on your car and not someone who learned to fix cars by watching others. They are also great at electrical issues, especially on German cars. I know you're thinking of course I'm going to hype up my brother, but they're seriously very good mechanics. They will do it right with quality parts and quality repairs, not jerry rig it or hack it together. They will have a website shortly, they're working on that right now, and will most likely sign up here and become a vendor once their site is up.
Their address is:
3831 Berdnick St.
Rolling Meadows, IL 60008
