    yeah thanks! gilman is good, I've been there for alignment several times before. and if you like motul products they are authorized dealer I think, that's pretty much the only brand they use for any sort of fluids.

    I would avoid Tire Depot. I had a bad alignment there. Spec sheet they gave me was spot on put the car was all over the place. So I went to mazda and TOE was way out on all sides. LF was 1.12 Deg, RF was .81 Deg. LR was 1.27 Deg and RR was 1.21 Deg.
    Spec should have been -.09 to .28 Deg for all corners.
    You decide if Tire Depot did the job.

    Went to Altech today after I got the Yellow Koni's installed. Had an appointment at 12noon, got there a bit late cuz of construction on Islington (reduced lanes). Took about 30 minutes and got a print out of the readings. $60 cash and I was out of there. Great service, quality of work is top notch and best price around.

    AVOID!!! I took my 300zx there...I told the guy to make sure and get me for the test drive. 20 min go by and suddenly hear my BOV's go off and I run outside and he's gone. I blast the lady behind the counter for the entire time he's gone, he rolls in and I let him have it too....rediculous

    Scarboro Mazda. Al (SM) is active on rx8club and he has a beautiful FC racecar in the showroom. Very nice guy, met him at Shannonville this summer. He does great work for all the TO area rotaries and I'm sure he'd give you guys the same perks.
