    Yea, he even threw in a couple free things like boost leak test so my impression with him has been great.

    So far I am impressed with the work that they did. Not overly impressed with the amount of time it took but I don't know how much control they had on that. I think that really fell on the insurance company and having to transport it to the alignment shop plus waiting for an axle that had to be shipped from Germany. Brian was great through it all even with me constantly emailing him for progress updates. They are moving soon to a bigger shop because they have been slammed. I would feel confident recommending people there.

    Well, after too many weeks without my car I finally have it back and it feels great to have it back to its former glory!

    That's pretty awesome that you made one yourself. I think for now I'll just do the subframe and down the road look more into the diff bushing especially if it starts to wear out. I'm getting really antsy to get my car back so I don't want to ask them to do much more and have it for longer.

    That makes me want to do the diff too while I'm at it

    Yea from what I have seen people only notice NVH with the diff bushings, so for the subframe I should be fine. I ended up going with the Whitelines so hopefully fingers crossed ill have my car back Thursday next week. Then I can finally get the konis and vogtlands installed.

    That's good to know. The whiteline is pretty well priced at 180

    Yea that's what I was thinking just for peace of mind. My car only has 67k but no idea what the donor car is at. I can get them for a good price too, 80 for the set of 4 from Lemforder

    looking for a more experienced opinion just to settle the madness. About 6 weeks ago when the weather was crazy and it would rain then freeze then snow then thaw I was coming around a corner and slid into a curb. Damage now includes a bent rear subframe. So they are going ahead and ordering a used one off of a car that was involved in a front end collision. Would it be worth it for me to get new bushings and have them replace them before they install it? Insurance wont touch the bushings but is covering the subframe.

    I got quoted 400 to have it done from a shop in Cedarburg. Ill be doing it myself in the next few weeks since the quote came in much higher than I thought it would be. Just have to transport it to get welded after I take it off and cut it up.

    I second that. Perfect golf weather finally.

    Well that is reassuring to hear. So far my only thought has been I should have been going there the whole time and not the dealer.

    Yea, I've been dealing with Brian and so far so good he has been extremely helpful. Figured I wanted to try and stay away from those dealership labor prices for some suspension work

    So I had an emergency come up Monday and had to take my car into Milwaukee Motorwerks. I looked at reviews and found the few posts on here and everyone seemed pleased with the service with the exception of one person. Anyone have more recent interactions with them? So far they seem to be taking good care of me.

    Almost went to the wcec opener since I had nothing going on. I think the snow was a good sign to stay home
