    Hello all, this is for all the members in the Manchester area. Can any of you recommend a garage/tuners local to Manchester where you have been going for years and always had good honest service with no damage to your car?

    Thanks, I only use garages which have come highly recommended.

    I've spoken with Rick @ Unicorn motor developments - heard his mapping is very good. James at the Audi doctor have you used him much? Always been happy with the work? Have you had any engine work done with him?

    Thanks

    He does my servicing, dads R8 and mums rs6. Good lad. Knows his stuff. Very reasonable and proper petrol head too. Couple of B5 S4s running over 500hp and other stuff.

    Rick mapped my car the other week. Very impressed with his knowledge and he got the most out of my car. he writes all the maps himself and they are tailored to what you want from the car. Think he is more known for high power petrol turbo cars flat shifts, launch control , multiple maps etc.
    His B5 S4 is a right machine :) .

    Thanks for the info guys, I will give them a call and have a chat. I would never take my car to a garage without personal recommendation :)
