Yea, I can vouch for and would trust my IS at the following places...

Sweet Water Splash - If you are not one to trust folks with your car, you can watch your ride the entire time it is being cleaned. They offer everything from a sprinkle of water to full car detail ($ to $$$). Lowered cars should be fine (2" for me). If you have rims that extend out from the tire...they will scrape on the "guiding rail". You also have the choice to wash your own ride in one of the many bays, should you need to unload some quarters.

LA Tint - I had them do my tint and they did an excellent job. They use high quality tint, that comes with a guarantee.

Ultimate Performance - Before the Lex, I ordered many parts and used them when I needed labor (including alignment and wheel mount/balancing). They used to be in Fairfax and were formerly known as CDE Motorsports. They are not the cheapest, but do have a nice facility and offer quality labor.

Tint / Detailing

Anyone interested in window tint or detailing, the @ Ziebart's in Fairfax does an awesome job. Computer cut tint for each vehicle - no free hand cuts. Detailing is flawless!

If you're interested, PM or IM me so I can make the appt for you that way you can get a discount. Appts are also available on Saturdays.

Curry's Auto website found here:
http://www.currysauto.com

Nice website with very "at home" appeal by featuring actual mechanics who work for Curry's.

I'm getting my new wheels mounted/balanced there next week.

Yeah, they're great and very friendly but they pissed me off when they failed my state inspection b/c the strip on my windshield was 3/4" lower than legal.

Did you tell them that they are ghey? I find that helps.

My complete lack of knowledge is perfectly balanced out by my complete lack of giving a shit.

On second thought - went to Curry's yesterday, they over-charge like a b*tch. Friendly but wouldn't necessarily recommend.

For tire mount, balance, and alignments, I go to NTB in Chantilly. The guy who does the alignments is cool and does great work (from my experience -- both cars).
