Aberdeen area garages

Post by Lynden11 » Fri Jun 25, 2021 10:44 pm

Hi folks,

Anyone suggest any aberdeen(shire) garages for working on an s1 Elise? General level service as well as fitting of a new Radiator for now but would like to find somewhere that can look after the car moving forward.

I’m based in ellon

Used to be the defacto response to this would have been Ricky Gauld but he has at least semi retired now. Tut used to get some work done by Duthie motors in Longside but have no idea if they are any good.
Most people just bite the bullet and travel down to Craig's in Edinburgh.

Or find somewhere that runs / looks after racing cars. Fettling and problem solving are more important on an S1 than fitting and general spannering

Funny I have family up that way and drive past most weekends... always wondered what they do and always meant to look them up!
