I really need help. I am from Ukraine and just moved to Riverside. English is not my native language so it's difficult to handle all of the faq's and other info's fast. I am member of Lacetti forum in Ukraine and I know it's a pain in a$$ to read noobs threads like this one. In Ukraine I have a friend who own's a mechanic shop, so I didn't have any problems maintaining my car. I did a lot of work myself (with prof. tools you can do anything). Now I need to figure out how to maintain a car in US. I bought SVTF 2002 110k+ miles - this car needs to be treated really well, and because it's old it needed a lot of work, so I need to find trustworthy place to do the work. I've heard a lot of scary stories about dealerships and shops in US like replacing new parts with old ones, etc. In Lacetti Club we had a list of trustworthy companies, but on FF I found only list of exclusive vendors :( and a list of online retailers. So I need any advices about local mechanics, bodyshops, etc.

SUMMARY:
Problem 1: I need trustworthy mechanic (who can manage SVT) in Riverside area (ZIP 92507).

Problem 2: The biggest problem my car has right now is it needs brake work - while braking the pedal is shaking a lot, probably needs new rotors. I need any advises, where to do the work, what parts, etc?

Problem 3: I don't now the maintenance history of the car. Particularly, I don't know whether timing belt is changed or not (how to check this?). If you are the guy from Newport Beach area who sell Sonic-Blue SVTF 2002 with 110k+ miles to BMW's dealer please PM me :) .

P.S. I really appreciate any help. Thank you for reading my post.
You need new pads, rotors and possibly change the brake fluid. Why not change the brake fluid, your already working on the breaks. try Tousleyford.com for decent prices on oem equipment. I would suggest upgrading the pads to some ebc pads, in my opinion. good luck and it was nice seeing you again at the meet in Temecula a couple weeks ago... Good luck man!
