Question Best all around shop in Colorado?

I have grown sick of shops not knowing what my car is, thinking it is a V-6, G6, front wheel drive car, or worse, assuming I don't know a thing or two about cars.

I am looking for an all around shop that can do general maintenance and mods that I don't want to do my self. (Struts, tuning, cam, random installs maybe the occasional oil change that I don't feel like doing myself).

What shops do you guys use? I am willing to make a drive, I live in Foco.

Just keep an eye out here on the board....Every once in a while we try to get a "meet" together. Or if you want to try to start one, go for it.

There are a few G8's in/around Aurora, a few in the Springs/Castle Rock area, some further north in Thornton/Brighton+ & then even more in the Fort Collins & Boulder County areas....
