    I can fully recommend Howard BMW in Redruth (01209 212633) fully trained specialist.

    It was formely Mavromatis BMW.

    Andy is a great guy and has done sterling work to my 530d.

    Hi Rumbo, there is only one guy there, he is a fully trained BMW engineer, he charges £40 an hour, he has DIS diagnostics and you can watch him work.

    The business has been there for years, it was called Mavromatis and has built up a really good reputation, Chris Mavromatis retired and Andy Howard took over.

    Andy has done a few jobs for me, and each time I have been very impressed.

    Hi All

    I have been using JMW Autotechnic in Grampound Road, Truro.

    Web: www.jmwautotechnic.co.uk

    Tel: 01726 883 984

    They are BMW Specialists and were working as BMW Master Techs for many years until they set up themselves.

    My wife and I have two 320d's a compact and touring which they have worked on and done performance upgrades to, which are amazing.

    Jamie and Johnie run the family business. They are very friendly and honest.

    We are in Cornwall every 3 months for surf and prefer to use them.

    I would even recommend them to my mum, can't say more than that!

    Whilst living in redruth i did regularly use Mavro untill one time he miss diagnosed a problem & cost me much £££.

    I then discovered JMW in Grampound & can't fault them but the mileage kills, so it may well be worth giving Mr Howard a try?, only thing is the Crazy Cypriot still lives above the workshop!!
    better a day as a Lion than a lifetime as a Sheep.

    I asked them recently...
    Oil = £95 + vat
    Inspection 1 = £145 + vat
    Inspection 2 = £275 + vat

    a mate of mine is a rep for a motor factors and he said they are very professional and recommended them to me.

    Does that include V8 engines?
