    Christ Dave, what the hell has gone on here! These guys had superb write ups after my first experience with them. Always took my Clio there!

    I guess at least they are sorting the bolt for you, but the wheels are just a nightmare. Not sure what to say in all honesty mate.

    Edit, just read you've sorted it which is a relief.

    Perhaps get a letter out to trading standards to vent some anger? Not sure how far you'll get, but worth it for ten minutes write.

    Erm...im just happy its sorted now to be honest...
    I just know where not to go......to be fair if the apprentices were more supervised this could have been avoided, but it looks to me like they have no respect for peoples cars, so ive got no respect for them...

    Just amazing how experiences can be at such extremes, no wonder we worry about leaving our car with anyone these days.

    £100 but that was centralising the chassis, def worth it, i would recommend it drives like it is on rails now....

    By centralising the chassis, do you mean the subframes?

    To clarify Dave, If i've recently lowered the car 20/ 25mm on fixed KW shocks / springs and my wheel is worse then when I first took it to National...

    Can they fix this problem? Getting a right ballache now...

    (edit sorry)


    Im concerning the wheel straightness. Basically its atleast 2 inches (right hand down) to drive straight and therefore can then correct this?

    If so, how? Re-alligning the tracking?
