I'm looking to get some insight from my Jersey, NY and PA people. What part of NJ (Central, North East, North West, South East, South West) do you think needs a performance shop specializing in German automotive, particularly Audi and BMW? I'm trying to guage interest so keep in mind the scene in the area you choose. For example don't say so and so area needs a German performance shop if your car and your buddie's car are the only German cars around there.

Also what would you look for that shop to have?

Thanks for your help

northeast jersey.. i kno plenty of people with audis and bimmers that constantly look for a quality shop that can do multiple things at once for a reasonable price.. also a shop specializing in priming and painting german parts made of various materials (polyurethane, etc) would be helpful as well.. i had an oettinger bumper that wouldnt be touched by tons of shops around here because its made of PURIM

lastly, a shop that could stock wheels and some performace parts for audis would do well as almost a mall for people to check out what they can buy in person for their cars

hope this helps

^x2, do one right over the GW or lincoln tunnel, this way all the NYC guys can get there, plus its not too far from all the Jersey guys that are under an hour away from there.

You'd have tough time getting my business away from EliteMotorsNJ (Bergen). Sam does full range from show cars to any mod, engine work. Mostly German. Very fair prices.

^ Yea but city guys wont travel that far. I'm pretty confident he'll do good in NNJ decently close to the city. It's not like going to school to be a lawyer, we have enough of those, lol.

They won't drive to Bergen County? That's right over the GW.[confused] Sounds like they don't want to drive outside the 'city if they don't want to go to Bergen County.

Why can't someone just make one in somewhere in the 5 boroughs so people wouldn't have to drive to Jersey and pay toll!

Hey Ray, when did you get rid of tolls within NYC? Get EZPass, it feels like it's free....

there are no tolls in nyc except to get into Staten Island. And its like 8 dollars to get back into NYC. I really dont mind much but me getting to bergen county would be about an hour and a half from where I am so I probably wouldn't go there unless I have to.

You need to get out more -- Bronx-Whitestone Bridge – Brooklyn-Battery Tunnel – Queens Midtown Tunnel – Throgs Neck Bridge – Triborough Bridge. And of course Staten Island and Borough of Jersey.

That is because they make you pay money to leave the state of New Jersey. (I always found that amusing.)

I am in what a lot of people consider south jersey, but more like central. Ocean/monmouth county. I know there is a decent VW scene by me, not to much on the audis though. There is a decent german car population by me, but not nearly enough imo unless you plan on doing something else besides just german tuning/performance. Personally I would LOVE a close shop for shit that I don't like doing myself. But in the reality I think a shop in northern jersey that most of jersey and nyc can get to will be much more beneficial.

There are other shops up there so for people who say there is nothing up north are retarded, if you wanna see no shops come down here all you'll see is a Subaru shop that wont touch anything but them, and that about sums it up for places around central/south jerz ha.
