New (used) G500 owner in L.A. + question

Hey all,

I just bought a 2005 G500 in "lazurite blue metallic" - a bizarre color name for a beautiful dark gray that looks different depending on the light of day.

I love this truck! Surprisingly nimble, puts me above L.A. traffic, and a great, road-aware ride that makes me want to drive everywhere.

Just to prepare for the future: If anyone knows any good mechanics in/around Santa Monica, I'd love to hear of them. Also, would love to hear anyone's wisdom on sourcing parts/accessories for the G500.

Many thanks!

Thanks + Still a question . . .

Thanks for pointing me to the right part of the discussion board.

Unfortunately, for my area (West L.A.), there does not seem to be a strong consensus on who's good and honest. Each mechanic mentioned is praised and criticized about equally.

I'll go post there and see if I can revitalize the discussion. There must be someone trustworthy in L.A. to work on my G500!
