    Just booked my car into Wheelbase for an Insp.1 service.

    Wasnt very impressed with the guy's telephone manner.

    Saw a few recommendations in other threads but just wanted to get anyone else's thoughts on them.

    Cheers.

    Haven't used them but did take my old 330d to Clayton Cars for it's inspection 1 and found them really good and helpful :-)

    I've used Clayton before but they are charging an extra £35 for the insp.1, so thought may as well give wheelbase a go. The guy sounds like such a cretin on the phone though, for instance giving one word answers to questions; I'm really having second thoughts.

    Wheelbase do some fantastic work and are pretty efficient, but admittedly the telephone manner is off.
    Good guys though when you talk to them in person.

    I've used Wheelbase once before but wasn't that impressed as they changed the engine breater without my approval and after I had told them I had only just replaced it myself. They seemed nice enough but I'm going to try Clayton Cars next time.

    Reviews on Clayton cars are mixed too! My old man has always had great experiences with them but I have had one or two people I recommended to them come back less than impressed

    After talking to Clayton cars I'm going to give them a miss as well. Hmmm where next.
