North Dayton Area Mechanic Needed

Hello, all. I'm new to Ohio am staying north of Dayton. I need a new clutch for my R60. I am looking for a reputable shop that is familiar with all the quirks and idiosyncrasies these cars have. Any recommendations? I'd be willing to drive to Cincinnati if needed, or Columbus, but would love to try to keep it local.

Thanks in advance!

Thanks. I ended up doing it myself. It is a CHORE! It'll be right at two weeks of 6 hrs per day avg by the time I finish, but I did also replace the turbo oil lines, front cv boots, slave cylinder, and trans input shaft seal. I also fixed some wiring i found damaged during the process. If I did it again, i think I could do it in a week.

I can tell you, it's pretty much a two person job to do the subframe and trans removal/install portions.
