ITS BACK

just thought I would share...

I have my amazing 330d m sport back after nearly a month in the body shop thanks to some blind twat on a roundabout

Work done seems brilliant, minus the fact when I picked it up yesterday it had a 4 series alloy on it and the tracking was out!

If anyone is Essex or close has a requirement for a body shop or repair centre I can serious recommend these guys. And no the monkeys in the dealers went nowhere near it.

So...driving it now I feel complete, it seriously makes you realise how much of a nicely refind engine and car it is compared to most

I bet you are glad to have it back after a month! I'm currently on holiday driving a Citroen C3 which isn't a bad car by any means, quite surprisingly good in fact but I can't wait to be back in my own car!

Yep!

They had a 4 series there and had mixed them up! Silly as the place is brilliant, just a silly mistake, did look odd!

So they are brilliant but so useless they can't see the differences in alloys or get the tracking done. Thanks for the heads up, if I lived near I'd avoid them!

It was a simple and quite funny mistake to be honest.

Considering they had about 4 Aston martins, a 911 and a Bentley having work done when I have been there so far, they're better than the dealers, who by the way fucked up on even putting the right caps on the tyre valves.

The work they have done is brilliant, I judge them on that-seems a bit more sensible to me.

Lol at the caps, yeah not saying dealers are any better. Some of the best repairs I had done were an independent repair centre!

At least it sounds like they did a job you are happy with and have the car back, that's all that matters!
