Garage /mechanic list

Maybe an idea to get UK members to recommend a garage /mechanic and their location in the UK. This could then make easy access for people trying to find a tried and trusted garage /mechanic in their area of the UK.

Just my penniesworth.

Good idea.

Especially those who are new to the Subaru world and who don't want to go down the stealer route.

+1 for Cotswold (WURX on eBay IIRC) - I would go so far as to say their customer service is the best I've received from any garage.

I can also recommend Simpsons in Swindon and TH White in Cirencester - have used both recently and was very happy with them.

Subaru4You are also good though judging by some of the quotes I've heard they've given recently, they do seem to be getting a bit expensive... number of hours quoted for jobs going up to cover a lower hourly rate perhaps?

Other than that, my local mechanic Tim is also great when I need a hand working on mine - very experienced, self-employed and not VAT registered!!!

Was: 3 x WRX, 1 x Foz XT
Now: BMW M235i + X1, Cooper S, KTM 450 EXC, Triumph Tiger XCx
