Nice looking car, one bit of advice, lose the 22 inch wheels, the car will ride like a Range Rover on 20inch. Also lots of issues with 22inch, do a search on here.

Yes all done last friday all good, James has a lot of knowledge of these cars as he own one too, honest mechanic very rare these days.

Took it in for cam belt and full service dropped it off in the morning at 8.30am and it was ready around 3.00pm will defiantly use again in the future and recommend to others local.

Maybe we should set up a monthly meet and greet somewhere to talk RRS and swap notes...

Yes amgmaj, as you said. Spot on. Just discussed the maintenance going forward. He seemed quite happy to give advice and talked me through a couple of jobs I’d be happy doing myself. He’s also a VW nut so ended up talking about golf mk2 etc. I will be using him for servicing and will probably end up getting stuck in with him as he seems quite happy to let customers help with the work. I’m well up for that as I’m an engineer so always keen to learn how things work and will try most things myself.
Thanks for the head up on this.

No worries mate anytime, that's good he's willing to let you help in service and parts change as most garages don't like that sort of thing.

I had ticking noise coming from the front of my engine so went to see James today and he replaced my viscous fan with one he had at the garage a used viscous fan as we wanted to be sure that's the problem he done that for me and said drive the car over the weekend to see if noise has gone and I've made no payment yet...... A good man James is 🖒
