Question Auto Shops in Chicago/Northern Burbs?

Does anyone know of any auto shops in the Chicagoland area that carry parts for the Focus? I'm looking to start upgrading mine, and would prefer to buy parts/get tips from a real person than order things over the internet.

Also, I would like to add a body kit to my car this summer, so I'd be looking for a shop that can paint and install the kit.

Any suggested good shops and shops to watch out for would be really appreciated. Thanks!

How about shops actually in the city? I live downtown and going to the burbs all the time stinks!

So Karl from Massive actually has a garage/storefront? We should have a meet there sometime when it gets a little warmer out. I'm down for it. Anyone else?

His place is off of Route 12 right?

His place is off 12, and he has a garage/storefront. Call or email him for anything you need.

IIRC, Karl is having a car show this spring.

Does anyone know store hours for Massive. Haven't heard back when I sent email. Want to check it out over the weekend, but don't want to head there if they are not open.

Karl is a tough guy to get a hold of with email. Typically you can get him at the store between 9-5 Monday through Friday 815-675-1822
