    I have a few jobs I'd like to get done on my E46, hence I'm in need of a garage to go to, ideally fairly local to Stourport / Kidderminster, or Solihull, West Midlands.

    I'm aware of Autobahn, but otherwise, don't know anyone else in the region – Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.

    if you want a subframe reinforcement try DynoTourque in Tyseley theyve done a fair few now so know how to do it properly with a brace bar added.

    Autobahn in Halesowen.

    For subframe work I'd consider the following;

    -ETA in Brands ; yes they are a while away but they've done loads and their price is very competitive with little hassle.
    -TI Motorsport in Stoke on Trent.
    -Dynotorque; In many circles they have a very good rep.
    -Autobahn in Halesowen.

    I'm based in Warwick and went to ETA. It was pretty hassle free however dealing with them which IME is rare for a specialist.

    No-one I have first-hand experience with in the Midlands but I’ve had Inspection II and RACP reinforcement process done by Redish in Bristol. Bit of a drive but well worth it if you want the best.

    Just a quick note for anyone reviewing this in the future, had great service from Dynotorque, and was super impressed. Totally transparent about timings and their workload, which was appreciated.

    Very reasonable on pricing, and the car feels a million times better afterwards - They've done the boot floor reinforcement including adding their own brace which ties the rear turrets together and sits inside the booth floor so isn't intrusive, as well as some other bits and bobs I requested.

    Wouldn't hesitate to recommend them for anyone looking at this in the future :)

    Only down the road from me, so will have to bear them in mind for future work on my m3, do you mind me asking how much they charged?

    They did service the car alongside some other bits and bobs, so certainly worth asking I'd think.

    I know they do all sort of bits and bobs including a fair few BMWs. They had an LS Z3M Coupe, a 1 hatch with an S65 in, and an charged E90 in when I dropped the car off, alongside a variety of other interesting cars.

    There a Similar price to ETA really, had mine done at dyno Tourque aswell, really nice bunch of people, no hassle and a quality job, I think he’s just finished putting an ls3 into a deloren to give you an idea of their fabrication skills so your in good hands.
