As above. Both Dovehouse & DW are only about 20mins from St Neots and its a lovely drive up the B645. Ive used both numerous times and always got a good service.

Also Barr Tech in Cambridge have good reputation although ive not used them myself.

Thanks guys....been recovered to Auto 2000 as was closer. AA investigated and could not identify the immediate problem after 30 mins of looking!!!....typical!! Enfield Autos came round to recover the car and identified the problem straight away and freed up the wheels!....very knowledgeable. It was the handbrake shoes!! Will let you know the full diagnosis when I get it!!!

BarrTech are good, taken mine there for a few bits, go out there way to help and when price-checked with Demort, he said they could have charged me more.

Were recommended to me by someone with some exotic metal, he takes all of his cars to them.

Hey Fella, yep have used them recently when I had my exhaust bolts removed and replaced... most of them had to be drilled out na did them by hand - did an excellant job.

Darren is the chap who owns it, i live about 3 mins away so on my doorstep. All I can say do far are no complaints, will be taking my there to get the service done next year mate.

If your not far away, just pop in and say hello.
