they only seem to offer servicing to customers who buy from them.

Always had a good experience with Aberdeen volks centre/garage on the road out to kingswells. Had my old A3 and my S3 serviced there. All ex VAG technicians I believe.

Osborne Motors in Dunfermline have just fitted winters to the mrs A3 and my old BMW . Less cost than K fit robbers by worthwhile amount and delivered the removed tyres in his van back to mine.
Proper family concern that know how to run a business and have fun with their track day cars.

I would recommend North East Motors Ltd near Newmachar. Marc there has 12 years main dealer experience.

Just to prove there are still some customer orientated garages out there that give top service.

Yesterday my Wife took the car into "The Garage" Whitburn West Lothian to have the 19" Wheels taken off and put the winter wheels on.

Due the locking wheel nut key not being in the car (It was in the house, its a new car so she never thought) Ian really went way beyond the call of duty to find her and sort it out. All for 20quid. Top bloke and great garage.

Looking for a Citroen Specialist in Scotland (not Oldmill Motors Aberdeen) to do a rebuild on the 2CV or anybody that does reasonable re-builds on their own/ decent garage.

Would love to do this myself however current living conditions (flat in town) prevent me from doing it. Current storage is going to run out soon so need to do this in the next year or so, any help appreciated.

I've used these guys for my 2CV, worth giving them a call.

Cheers although that's a bit too far for what I had in mind. There is a Citroen specialist at Forfar =. 'G Murray & Sons' has anybody got any experience with them?

When it comes to anything German the guys at Deutschtek are remarkable. Great mechanical and communication skills. I have taken them Porsches BMW,s and Volkswagens over the last six years. Never had any issues and they are always very accommodating.

About to become a proud owner of a Corolla T Sport. Any ideas who would be the best person to speak to regarding servicing it in or around Aberdeen? Stuff like lift bolts etc that is a bit unusual in this engine. Maybe a lotus specialist?
