I've been taking my cars to Tim for a few years now. He's a small one-man outfit now, after stopping the recovery side of his business and selling his larger garage in Irthlingborough - so now he's concentrating on servicing and repairs etc.
Being in the business for decades, he really knows his stuff and actually likes to see an old-school car come in - he does deal with modern cars too, but I think he much prefers carbs to injectors!
As he's owned several Minis in the past - including Cooper S's and Mini vans, he was really enthusiastic when I picked up my Cooper last year.
He's helped me to find a few hidden 'nasties' and he's been great in showing them to me and discussing the best course of action - not just cracking on and presenting me with a long list on an invoice after! He's also shown enthusiasm in the bits I've been able to do myself, rather than criticising me for it as some garages might.
I can't fault the quality of his work and the prices are pretty reasonable too. Highly recommended.
