    Hello all,

    I have a 2004 E46 320d, from reading the info on the forum, I have decided that its a must that I have my swirl flaps removed.

    My car has got a full dealership service history but Im not bothered about keeping this as such, would much rather take it to a decent specialist garage, as I dont really rate my local stealers!!

    If anyone knows of a good specialist garage around Northampton (and beyond) then I would appreciate it if you could let me know.

    In this case I am looking for a garage who will be able to remove these swirl flaps, but any garages also recommmended for services etc would be great!

    Thanks in advance

    Hi seb, not sure what side of Northampton you are and how far you want to travel but I use bensten motors in St ives, I'd say about 40 mins from northampton itself, they have never let me down and have a great reputation

    Hi Martyn,

    I live on the East side of Npton. But would be prepared to travel if theres nothing closer to home. What sort of dealings have you had with them? Are they reasonably priced etc?

    I've just gone on there website so will email them about swirl flaps.

    Thanks again!

    I've been going to them for a while seb, used to take my old 323 there. The mrs has her car booked in friday for a service, 50% cheaper than quoted from elms bmw bedford, You dont get the things like a wash that you get from a dealer and their courtsey cars are only...kia's (ssssh) but i'd prefer the cheaper prices and no thrills.

    Great stuff. I agree the courtsey cars and washes are not that important. I would prefer good service and reasonable prices any day.

    Have just contacted them so will await there response.

    Cheers.

    ***Anymore recommendations of Garages near the Northampton area would still be greatly received - cheers peeps!***
