Following on from mxdi’s forum post, I’ve created this as a Wiki. smile Where possible I’ve included the website, or telephone number as well as a brief description of what each place does – feel free to add or amend this.

Please add your local garage recommendations, but rememeber no naming and shaming on forums if you had a bad experience. Please avoid "John is great and you wont find a better service" type stuff - stick to the facts on what the place offers.

No advertising of your own business - it must be a recommendation from services you have used!
Any additions will be checked out to confirm if they are genuine recommendations. ADVERTS WILL BE DELETED
