The closest place I trust is Yimisport in Valencia/Santa Clarita. Right where the 126 meets the 5. It's a little drive but worth it for their expertise.

Some of the shops listed are not in business anymore. Can we get an updated list?

The list has not been updated in over a year. Even then, the last update did not include all the shops commenting in the thread. Its FAR from a complete or even functional list.

If you are in Menifee I recommend Subie Shop in Oceanside.

Are there any current shops on the west side near Culver City that specializes in Subarus and/or does tuning? Everything on this list is either far away or closed. Thanks.

Got a great Dyno tune and rebuild on my STI here. Better rates than anybody I found in the area by far, even picked me up from work after they finished the tune . If your in the Riverside or San Diego area its worth a visit.

Seen some seriously shady stuff go down at Apocolypse. Work with no reciepts, jdm engine swaps with incorrect harness/ecm and no tune, blessing and installing engines with less than 100psi compression, and more. I do not believe they are BAR licensed either (not last I checked). Do your homework before dropping off your prized Subie.

Any suggestions for a shop for head gasket replacement near Santa Monica/West LA? Just got an insane quote to replace it (2,500) and would prefer to find a shop that's trustworthy.

Question Looking 4 WRX Mechanic in Oceanside CA

Hi everyone,

I am in need of some possible clutch repairs on my 03 Bugeye WRX...

Does anyone know of a Subaru knowledgeable mechanic in Oceanside-California (as close to the 92054 zip as possible) that can take a look at my car and possibly perform quality maintenance?

Thanks in advance!

RZ

Reach out to Subie Shop in Oceanside. I was down there for a tune at Delicious and Bill recommended Subie Shop for some work on my car while I was in the area.

I live in LA, but this Oceanside shop was recommended to me - I phoned on a whim prior to buying my (first!) WRX, and the owner was extremely helpful and giving of his time and knowledge about boxers and such. He knew I wasnt likely going to be a customer, but spent time anyway. Since that call, I've heard others say great things about the team's work.

Default LA Mechanics Garage / Hands On Work

Wuttup Fam.

New to the game and I just picked up a 06' Saab 9-2x aero. Which Im sure most of you know is a Saabaru WRX. Their forum is a bit dead so figured I would hit this one up

Part of the reason I got this car is so I could wrench on this car myself. Problem is I live in an apartment and jacking it up is a pain in the a$s.

Is there is anyone in the LA area that has a home garage/shop and knows a thing or two about how to work on these cars? I know there are legit shops but they are always a little leery about some random guy walking around using their tools. Whatever the task at hand I'd be happy to pay you your rate and get my hands dirty as well.

-Ruta
