Thumbs down mechanics to avoid in Edmonton,Ab

Hey boys and girls, just bought my first bimmer (92 325i) and am not too happy with the guy that did my pre purchase inspection. He gave me a list of things that were wrong with the car. That included things like, lower control arm bushings, ball joints, rear main seal and a few other nickel and dime items that wouldnt break me. I mean, its a used car and I am prepared to put some money into it. Well he didnt tell me it would cost $800 to fix the A/C, he didnt see that the stabilizer bar isnt even attached to anything, it just hangs there. I thought the handling was shitty due to the control arm bushings, right? He didnt tell me the tranny rear housing seal is leaking. F*** me now I have to put an extra $1500- $2000 into the car. I love the car so its not all bad, but doesnt that piss you off.
By the way, the name of the place is Auto Imports in Edmonton, its located on 99 street and 76 ave. He might be a good mechanic, but thats what he did to me, Ill never go back there.

Love my Bimmer though !!!!!!
