    Very smart looking facility, i would say cant be far of main dealer prices, that level of equipment and a building that large costs serious money.
    Being a sceptical *******, ive looked at problems and reviews etc, nothing in the negative at all which i find very strange as theres always some non mech minded person that thinks they have been tucked up.

    Though the independent I use locally is the cheapest but he's also fair and doesn't add any extras. So sometimes things can work out. I think it's human nature to be cynical.

    Cambelt can be a car killer if done wrong, garage (or pretty much any online) reviews can and will sometimes be made up, speedys wheels Birmingham is the funniest they happened to get around 50 positive reviews within a couple weeks and none before or after, not only that but the place is awful and I've never been there without having to go back again for them to put a job they've done wrong right.

    Why not send a private message to Adamss24 on here? I believe he is North London based and he has done work for several forum members, all of whom have spoken of his very high standards. I haven't used him, but I have seen examples of his work posted on here in threads.

    Scotty, I am a proper cynic best thing about being cynical is every now and then you are pleasantly surprised!
    Old friend once told me everyone is a c$$t until they prove otherwise, hes been right so many times!
    But when i see premises like that and someone saying they are the cheapest quote, my active radar starts beeping.
    I have to say recommendations by word of mouth have got to be the ones to trust.

    I know couple of the lads working there, whilst ok, i would not call them audi specialists, it's very difficult to work well on all makes, whilst a cambelt is not a complicated job, knowing all the quirks of a particular model takes years of learning ! I would say give me a ring and never look for the cheapest quote, using good quality parts (either aftermarket or genuine) is essential !
    Thanks for the kind words guys, i am doing my best to keep people happy !
