Following from the PPS and JD Motors threads, I might be an idea to list places where we can take our cars or have work done on them with confidence? Let's NOT have it descend into a list of 'ooh don't go there' though, more a list of places where you personally have received good service.

I'll kick off with the aforementioned and some more:

PPS Glassfibre:
glassfibre, carbon, powder coating etc,
Inverurie

JD Motor Engineers:
servicing, repairs etc,
Insch

MH Engineering:
suspension guru, tuning, race car set-up and prep etc,
Inverurie

Gordon Smith Car Repairs,
servicing, repairs etc,
Daviot nr Inverurie

C&M MacDonald,
servicing, MOTs,
Oldmeldrum

Polished Bliss,
valeting, cleaning product supplies etc,
Kintore

Sounds a good idea. Would be handy if someone was able to make it a sticky so it was easy to find.

RSL Motors
Unit 1
Scotstown Rd
Bridge Of Don
Aberdeen

Just a general mechanic, but i have seen some exotica in his garage getting some work done. He's a typical aberdonian (ie rude with no sense of humour biggrin) but he knows what he's doing with just about anything and doesn't charge a fortune

I'd certainly recommend Motortune in Shotts who are Porsche specialists but they also deal with lots of other performance stuff like Ferrari/Lotus etc. I use them to maintain/service my 968 CS and they do an excellent job and at a reasonable cost. I've always been pleased with the service and Peter there is a really knowledgable & helpful guy.
