My E34 was previously serviced at Stop-Stop Inc at 4449 Dawson St, Burnaby
Peck Kapa is excellent!

My office uses a south african mechanic who has a shop in richmond. He is very honest. I took my car in there once for a diff noise and he took it for a drive, put it up on the hoist and inspected the diff fluid. Told me it was likely just some noise from surface tolerances wearing. No mechanical failure. Charged nothing. Another time a co worker had a window come out the tract and he put it back in free too. His name is Vince and the name of his shop is rainbow auto service. Knows german cars well.

x2 for CG Motorsports in Richmond. Great bunch of guys and also HUGE enthusiasts.

I always take my cars to them when Im in the Vancouver area.

As a foot note the best shop in Victoria, BC is R&W Motorsport in case anyone ever gets stuck on the island. Do NOT go to Island Motorsport.

I would be willing to look at the car and check things over. Have a vag-com cable to scan ecu for codes.
