Just had the old M5 Mot'd and serviced by Dave at Central Garage Glenkindie.

The usual great service, and a good drive there and back.

For any owners/collectors in the North East needing winter storage GT Storage Solutions is getting quite busy and I can recommend getting in touch soon to make sure you get a space if needed.

They can now offer enclosed transport too which is hard to find up in Aberdeenshire.

Any recommendations for small dent repair, ideally in Perthshire or Aberdeen? Glasgow or Edinburgh possibly do-able too. I've done a quick search, but I'm aware that the big franchises seem to change hands often and it does come down to the skill of the individual.

Someone has doored the VW Caravelle that I only picked up a week ago. Two small but annoying dents which don't appear to have broken the surface.

His van is often just round the corner from me - I thought he was mobile working from the house.

Just while I am on, I have to give a mention -again - to Craig at Gilmour Engineering in Cambuslang for saving my bacon yet again. A great wee old school engineering shop - specialised in gearbox repairs but is honest enough to trust with anything. Did a great job on my cylinder heads for my Sprint after a couple of cambelt disasters and a washer ingestion.........

Nope, alive and probably just very busy. Had my MOT done there last month and picked up my car from a full Hunter alignment today.

I had no problems with the website and booked online, they're one of the few garages I've found that seem to know how to correspond by email, try adam@mbjarvie.co.uk

I've been trying to get a quote from them for the past week.

There have been a number of emails going back and forward, but still no quote. Quite frustrating.
