    Specialist South West

    Can anyone recommend a garage in or around the Bristol area that can do the mundane stuff (service, mot, belts, etc) and/or offer performance options (i.e. clutch, haldex controller, turbo).

    Also any where nearby recommended for wheel refurbs and general paint scratch and dent repair.

    According to the Official Guide to South West UK this includes Swindon and Gloucestser so Bristols well in there -> http://www.westcountrynow.com/main/d...tions/home.cfm.

    Volkscrafts fairly close, might give them a try. Has anyone had any experience with them?

    Cheers

    I've had a few bits done by Mitch at Streetwise automotive. He's a good guy, very honest and drives an S4 himself, really well kitted out garage...

    Pah.. still dont believe its the southwest, you dont make pastys up there.

    Also, the same trading estate as volkscraft, theres "southwest wheel repairs" damn good at wheel refurb. quoted 230 to do all of mine.

    Thanks for all the responses.

    I'm going to give streetwise a try first as its in Bristol and I currently have no MOT, plus 3 slow punctures (although one might be deemed fast) and semi-built doors where I am halfway through fixing the electric windows.


    Cheers

    Matt at Volkscraft is a ledge, can't reccomend him enough!

    I would say SouthWest is everything down and west of Bristol...

    Tsr performance in bridgewater are good.they seem to know a lot about the 1.8t engine amongst everything vag.they do the lot from diagnostics to remaps etc.
    sorry to pinch the thread but it is on topic, does volkscraft have a 4 wheel drive rr. Im going to get a remap soon and exeter is closer to me than bridgewater but i do want to get it on the rollers afterwards.
    i also might check that place out for a wheel refurb. Im still stuck on colour options at the moment. Standard or graphite....?

    Matt does not have one, but he may have access to one, you would have to ask him. TSR's RR is brill though.
