Does anyone know of any shops in the Northern VA (Arlington, in particular) area that does installs for performance parts? I was thinking of swapping out my Clutch Delay Valve for a "new" one:

If they do a good job with the CDV, I was thinking of some more substantial upgrades (shocks, brakes, etc). Thanks!


I have a 2002 330xi.

You might also talk to Road Race Tech located near Dulles

You might try London Auto in Falls Church. That's where I go to get my track tech inspections done. The only actual work I've had done there was new belts on my old 540 and I was happy with the job.

There's also J+F motors but I hear mixed things about them.

Lots of great advice! I'll let you know how my experience goes. :)

Bill Brochu (the only tech worth dealing with at J&F) left about a year ago, and I haven't been back in there since.

Martin Motorsports in Alexandria will definitely do the performance upgrades, and do them well.

Alexandria Bavarian off Rt 1 near Potomac Yards does really good work, but I'm not sure what his take is on performance upgrades. Grant is anal about getting it right though.

Heck, just drive up to Zeckhausen and have him do it. He is in NJ.

HAHAHA. Road Trip!

Actually, I ran by RRT (in Dulles) yesterday. I think I'm going to have them install the modified CDV and install a UUC stainless steel clutch line while they are at it. :) ...Now I just need to obtain the parts and setup an install time.

I would like to second/third the recommendation of RRT. The guys there are very helpful and professional. Their rates are also very reasonable.

It's nice to know we have a shop to count on. Kudos to RRT.:icon_drun

A little bit far away but there is a shop up near BWI called Induction Motorsports and they do great work. A couple of my friends swear by them, and I have started to bring my car there for inspections and upgrades.

What kinds of upgrades have you had Induction Motorsports perform on your car? Do you have an address and phone number?

Tom, Give us a call with any questions, 410-684-3900, or www.4induktion.com... As for the 540, a stage 1 VF supercharger really livens up the car :) Even with no other modifications
