For 30 years R & D Automotive has pampered and primped German automobiles, catering to collectibles, racecars, and everyday street vehicles. Car aficionados can restore the innards of their four-wheeled steeds with an oil change, which incorporates a factory filter and a dose of fresh synthetic oil to impress passengers with a smoother ride and a healthier engine. The four wheel-alignment services employ state-of-the-art Hunter-alignment systems—whose computerized alignment sensors attach to the outside of the tires, rather than the wheel—to ensure sensitive tires don’t get damaged. Signs vehicles need alignment include excessive tire wear, vibrating steering wheels, and cup holders curled in the fetal position.
R & D's vehicular expertise extends to BMW-, Audi-, Mercedes Benz–, Porsche-, and Volkswagen-brand cars, and this motor-vehicle mecca even offers indoor storage to protect precious vehicles from the elements. Owner Rick Dobush races road cars and understands current horsepower upgrades, safety-equipment installation, and the secret Morse code of turn-signal blinks.
