Northway look after mine. they have a consistently good reputation. Also, I find they only do the work they deem necessary.


I agree. I have my car serviced by them and they never change things unless it's needed. A number of times I have asked them to replace parts and they said it's not needed yet which has saved me money. Very very honest guys indeed!!


Cheers chaps. I’m looking for somewhere with plenty of GT3 knowledge and experience though, I’m not sure Northway fit the bill in that regard based on checking out their website. I just remembered JZM, I’ll give them a call when I’m back from hols

Be patient, rest assured it'll be worth it. I'm currently in the same boat as you, but the best (and IMO Matt is) is very worthwhile waiting for.

Couldn't agree more, just had my turbo fettled by the Matts.

Roro, there is an old saying that states, "If you want a good job doing, go to a busy man." This is very true, especially where GT cars and turbos are concerned. Have you taken a run out to see him personally? This often gets results Thumb

Yes, my granddad used to say something similar, if you want something done properly, find somebody too busy to do it. He never had a GT3 though Smile I went up to see the Matts a few months back, I suppose there isn’t really any hurry to get the work done soon anyway. It would have been nice to get everything done before rubbish weather sets in and the car spends all its time locked in the garage again for winter Cool

Still waiting to hear back Dont know

On the plus side, car is back from service today, and the OPC changed the plugs even though I specifically said don’t. So got a plug change for free which is nice ... Very Happy
