    Looking for shop in San Fran

    Hello fellow drivers, I am new to San Fran and the NSX as well. I am looking for a local shop to work on my 91. I had a bad experience with the Marin Acura dealer and I looking for someone in the city. Any advise. What about a local club? I have several questions about the little noises the car makes, so a trustworthy mechanic would be appreciated

    I use Foreign Affair in Santa Clara exclusively. The owner used to race for Honda and he drives a Comptech Supercharged NSX. Even let me drive it! Their work is METICULOUS!
    Talk to Kevin or Steve at (408) 727-4884.

    Don Lam is still in charge at Hilltop!

    Okay, I admit it - I just wanted to bump a topic that was over eleven years old.

    I like Jim Russell at Sunnyvale Acura, he works on over 60 nsx's in the area and really knows and loves these cars.

    Might as well go up just literally a few blocks & take it to Don, the "Bay Area NSX Mechanic"

    I would want a guy who works on so many NSXs that he's familiar with the common problems, the short cuts, and the "gotchas". That's Don, at Hilltop.

    Re: Looking for shop in San Fran

    Jim is back at Belmont Auto Center in Belmont, no longer at Sunnyvale Acura.


    1250 Old County Rd
    Belmont, CA 94002
    (650) 592-3657

    They go under the separate name Belmont Car Center and also under the name of the body shop at the same location Cologne Auto Body.
    He is still the best.
