Overdue post!

Craig has now sorted the 211 and managed to coordinate everything to get it MOTd , serviced and charge cooler fitted!

On top of that Robson decided to stroke a deer. Unfortunately he did this with the passenger headlight of my R8. £3.5k later the headlight has just been replaced thanks to the insurance company and Monty dealt with it all!

Epic.

Well. Vicky is back on the road again with a new engine. A little more poke thanks to some "mild" cams provided by Robin.
All excellent service and at a very reasonable price.

500 miles running in... :shock: I assume you need to run them in gently across the full rev range to make sure that the engine is nice and free, after it is fully up to temperature obviously... running in oil is a bit smelly.... will be back in for the oil change soon, 200miles already under the belt in two days.
Well it moves... might as well make the most of it....

Great service again from Craig + team. Car was in for just under a day and managed a service and a few other jobs (not planned!)

All the best for 2018.

New exhaust fitted and a few annoying issues fixed on the Exige.

Top class service from Craig as always :)

My first experience with Craig over the last week or so when the Evora started emitting a strange noise from the engine bay.

New alternator (bearing shot) and drive belt sorted it : with the alternator sourced outside of UK to bring me a more cost effective solution.

Given his reputation I was confident I was in safe hands, but I’ve never felt so relaxed dealing with a garage in my life. More than one contact out-of-hours to ask which option I wanted to proceed with, or to check all was well - I really felt listened to and valued as a customer.

And I got to meet Reilly teh Dog.

Can’t ask much more than that.... I shall return.

Forgot to update this....

7 year service and mot just completed for the evora and another great result. I also got a bit carried away and asked Craig to get the wheels done and the car detailed at the same time.

Car now looks brand new and I couldn't be happier.
Evora NA, Volvo and more pushbikes than strictly necesssary.
