I would recommend to AVOID ScoobyClinic. To be fair, i think they are good specialist, but they will rip you off for 1000%
Example: Changing oils in engine, rear diff, and gearbox (oils+filter+labor)=250£?????? At the time when they show me receipt I thought this is a joke. Then I asked on what hour rate they work, and I heard 100£ (later through the phone I heard 3 other version of this rate from 100£ to 35£/h).
Just to give you a hint: 5l oil Millers5w30 (eBay or even shop) ~ 40£ dif/gearbox oils let say 50£ and the original filter 10£ = 100£, so 150£ for draining oil and putting a new one - ridiculous!
And the other problem with them is they don't listen to you at all! Because they want to rip you off again:) I was replacing the gearbox and asked them to swap sides the drive-shafts and re-grease them (there was very small, knocking). Any way they have to get it out when replacing gearbox, and it was easy to do it at these time. What happen, obviously they haven't done this. When I call them and asked to do it I heard it will cost min. 160£?!?!?!?!?!
