Hey everyone, try to fill in as much for the above list as possible...

Redline & Tinlemon: If you can be a reference for any of the above shops, let me know.

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.

On second thought - went to Curry's yesterday, they over-charge like a b*tch. Friendly but wouldn't necessarily recommend.
What'd they charge for the mount an balance?

Sorry, forgot about this thread for a little bit. Yeah, I know, I'm a b*tch.

My episode went something like this:

$134 for mount and balance. They charged me $10 for tire disposal even though there were no tires to dispose of (used same tires, new wheels). Then they couldn't find the wheel lock key (where it went, I do not know, I bought my car used only about a month ago).

So my dealer (Pohanka) is just down the street from this place. They don't have a new set of wheel locks in stock so they have to bring over 4 regular luts so that Curry's can cut the existing wheel locks.

So they charge me $50 for that additional labor plus $34 for the lugs (were they really that much? Who knows, I never saw the receipt for those! :bitching: ). I didn't see the Pohanka guy who delivered the lugs.

Anyway, in the end, it ended up costing me $225. I'm trying to get some of that reimbursed by Lexus b/c they sold me a car without a wheel lock key.

They are very friendly people and they are moving to a new location in Chantilly (which would alleviate the noise problems waiting in their current shop). I just think they over-charge...

Man, that's crazy! Pohanka really should reimburse you.

Do you know where Curry's is moving to? Parking is a b*tch there. Again, not sure if I'll ever take my car there again. It is convenient location wise but I maybe go back to Ultimate Performance (formerly cdeMotorsports).

4U2,

I think it's only a mile away from their current location off of Rt. 50 - where exactly I don't know. Supposedly they're moving this month!

Where is this Ultimate Performance you speak of and where in NOVA do you live?

Cool.

I'm just off of Stringfellow. How do you like the new Fairfax Corners theater right by you? It's awesome - saw Return of the King there but that's about it thus far.

Do you go to the local meets? I'm a new owner so my answer to that question is a no.
