    Hi all,

    Does anyone have any experience with any bmw indy specialists in the Reading area? I actually live about 15 miles east of Reading near Bracknell, and am prepared to travel.

    I have quite a few bits and pieces that need looking at now, and would like a reputable mechanic's opinion on them as I'm out of my depth!

    Cheers,

    Well I have a lot of problems - but most seriously to the rear suspension(?) and gear linkage.

    Thanks for the garage recommendation m3zimmer, i'll give them a ring and see what they can do.

    In Slough the trading estate, there is a place called H.T Mot Centre. They are good for servicing and stuff, you could give them a try, spoke to the owner and I think they have a workshop in Maidenhead too. Montrose Avenue in Slough, google map it, streetview will get you their number. Not sure I can post it here.

    hi RJ2DJ......

    did you speak to MunichMotors in the end? I had an E36 a good few years ago that was looked after by them - always did me proud.....

    I had a temporary cash-flow problem.

    Needed my car passing it's MOT and foolishly took it to Ecotest in Bracknell for a quick MOT. They completely messed up doing a wheel bearing. AVOID.

    I've actually just booked with K&M auto-technik in Windsor - I'm going to drive over this week and they are going to take a preliminary look at the car. I can report back with my thoughts if you like.

    Thanks for the recommendations though - Munich are second on my list if K&M don't inspire me with confidence.

    Hi mate,

    I normally go to Longshot Lane MOT and they have always been pretty decent to me in the 7+ years I have been going to them....

    Not had much mechanical work done by them with the exception of the gaitor and small patch of welding on an old Escort I had....

    Please keep me posted as its always good to know these places from ones personal experiences...

    whereabouts are you by the way?

    Ascot Service Centre is pretty decent, got my downpipe fitted their last week and am happy with the service. They also know a "friendly" MOT centre
