Talking

I just bought my 1st 540, although I have had a 325 10 years ago. Can anyone recommend an honest shop in Orange County, CA for the inevitable repairs? The car has 66k miles on it and I've read some of the likely items that will fail at this mileage.

Is it worth the bucks to add dinan exhaust, cai and chip? Is there a noticeable HP increase or is it just hype and marketing?

Thanks
Steel Rat
