It doesn't take a mechanical genius to set up timing etc. I say go with somebody YOU can recommend rather than to somebody who was recommended to you.

With a G40 there is not much to 'set-up' in the say way as a digifant, like in a GT. If you wanted the car to run spot on then look into a remap, if you haven't already. Would say give it a good service but your cars spot on
