Mechanics in Philly area

Sadly VAC motorsports is expensive. I have local mechanics that beat their rates. I have plenty of work to do in my 88 325i convertible and I know many things are DIY. I'm far from a mechanic but pretty handy, however it's my daily driver and I want things done right. I'm going to do my plugs, valve cover gasket myself but I also need timing belt w/ water pump, lower control arms and inner tie rods done. So far that's $1000 worth of work. Not bad but when I figure the parts total 300-350, makes me not want to pay $700 for someone to do the work. All of that said, anyone know of a reliable mechanic in the Philly area that won't try to rob me blind?

They list VAC in Philly, but some of the neighboring cities may be close to you.
