  • Google Map to all things SOMC related

    Hey everyone, I've taken some time to put together a Google map that we can all add stuff to that relate to SOMC.
    I figure this will be a good way for us to get an idea of who's close to whom, and make it a useful resource for finding stuff.

      I get all of my wheel/tire work done by MegaWheelz down at:

      1075 Queensway East Unit 12
      Mississauga, ON
      L4Y 4C8

      They have one of those fancy Italian tire installation machines that won't scratch your rims and the techs will actually follow your instructions and won't damage your paint with their impact guns. They are also meticulous when they do a test fit.

      Just testing the comment counts.

      It seemed a bit off.

      I would suggest that you stop by the Ancaster British Car meet on April 20th at the Ancaster Fairgrounds. There are lots of vendors & information on vintage Mini's etc and i'm sure a few of the vets will offer up their opinions on local repair shops.

      I recommend going to Foreign Automotive in Kitchener. They do all the work on my Mini. They only work on german cars. Their equipment is top off the line. They also have a touchless tire machine which wont damage your rims and they have a laser alignment machine also. Their prices are good and their service is excellent. They do alot of peformance work also including custom exhausts and tunes. They can also get any part from ECS because they make a trip there every month. If you end up going to check them out let them know Faiz with the Mini sent you.
      They're located on 35 Bleams Road, Kitchener, Ontario
