    recomended Midlands garages/body specialists/tuners

    Hi all,
    I joined the forum a week or so ago and finally found my way to the midlands section although Nilz told me to head here straight away, not sure if its best to post here or not as it is midlands specific but not about a meet

    anyway I was wondering if you can recommend any places in the midlands (preferably west midlands) for following work:

    Body Repair and Paint - Don't require full panels spraying but a couple of touch ups and a dent popping back on a wheel arch.

    Engine/Service work - I can get basics done like oil change and air filters through family member but would prefer to use someone who knows the engine for a full service and general inspection.

    Tuning - Still not a definite but if there is someone recommended local it may help swing my decision.

    My car is a 52 plate S3 8L BAM in Avus Silver thats covered 117k. with the age I would rather put my mind at rest by having someone who knows these cars well inspect it for common faults problems or general wear of anything mechanical that might need doing.

    Cambelt and Water Pump were changed last year by previous owner and it has FSH

    thanks guys, cannock sounds perfect for me 20 minute drive so if it ever had to stay in it would be easy to get back home. There is a Telford VW centre but not sure of its reputation as I've only owned fords previously

    Any body repair shops anyone could recommend?

    City Centre car care in Digbeth Birmingham. Approved by lots of firms including Audi, Mercedes, Bentley , Jaguar. Courtesy cars are a bit poo though, Peugeot 207's. Done a fantastic job on mine on both occasions it had to be fixed. They are actually the reason I insure with Aviva as they are one of their recommended companies.

    Try Greg Howell based in Southam. One of the best out there. I've seen his work and can't fault it. Not cheap but you get what you pay for in life.
