Recommended Garages/Services/Suppliers

Recommended Posts

Ant at A-Tech, what the bloke doesn't know about BMWs isn't worth knowing. I have personally used Ant for all my BMW needs on the E30, E39 and laterly my E28 and I wouldn't entrust them with anyone else.

Will undertake servicing, repairs and Turbo, Supercharger and engine management updates such as Megasquirt etc.

I'd second A-tech. Wonderful service with the chip for the 527i. Also C&C motor engineering in Sudbury Suffolk 01787 282858.

No web site but a good honest friendly garage. They undertake all kinds of work. I even seen a mk1 Golf having a new floor fabricated and welded in. That owner must have really loved his car.

Hey guys!

I got my wheels refurbished at The Wheel Specialist in Nottingham. I dropped the car off last thing Thursday evening and chose the finish I wanted. I also had my wheels inspected and was shown work in progress on several other wheels. I collected the car last night.

I am absolutely amazed at the job they have done. The wheels are like new (the original M5 alloys). They were in a really, really bad state, especially around the outer rim. The guys thought they wouldn't be able to get a perfect finish but they did. I ran my finger around each one and they are as smooth as could be. I would recommend the guys and their work very highly.

If you do go to them tell them that I recommended them please Alex.

If you do fancy to quote go online www.thewheelspecialist.co.uk

i hope i have been helpful

Hi

Just passing on my recommendation of HBH Motors who are based in Handsworth, Birmingham.

The main man (Ken) was previously a chief mechanic for RSJ Motors (also highly recommended and based in Birmingham). He now works from his own extensive back yard and hence, has great prices to match.

Most work undertaken from simple services to complete engine changes and you can supply your own oil/parts and just get him to do the work you ask. He specialises in pre-2005 models and has a 380,000 mile E34 540i himself!

Please call him on 07931 604354 and if you say that mak sent you, he will look after you very much!

I have to recommend these guys. They recently sorted some issues with my BMW for a 1/3 of the price the main dealer wanted.

They did some welding on my TVR's exhaust manifold..and didn't charge me!

They spent a few hours with my BMW last week checking for a water leak (which i thought i had), they pressure tested the car hot & cold etc...no charge again!

Tope fellas too.

I use these guys and have done for as long as I can remember. The owners name is TIM and he's a top bloke.

He can 99% of the time tell you whats wrong with your 5 (in fact most beemers) just by listening to it. The rest of the guys their are 1st class too, best not forget to mention Tim's wife who also works there.

Any way their prices are good, knoledge is top draw, courtasy cars if needed & so on. Also does insurance work.

He's always breaking E34's 39's 32's 30's and newer stuff and will ship.

Nobody in Scotland?

I used Deutchmarque in Edinburgh who charged me £340 for an insp2, bit steep when some BMW dealers charge less for older cars. Shame I dont have any such BMW dealers that are implementing the four plus scheme in Edinburgh, they wanted £550 for insp2.

Deutch marque do have good reputation though and are the largest independent BMW dealers in Scotland

Stu at M3 Motor Co near Bathgate 01506 811999. If you could mention Toby recommended you.

Has anyone used Beemer Redeemer in Kenysham Nr. Bristol? Wondering if they are worth a visit or a bunch of robbing pikey's like so many "specialist" breakers I have had the misfortune of dealing with locally.
