    Definitely recommend to everyone in the area.

    Took my 98 328 to these with a sticking throttle.They put it on the diagnostic machine and came up with two faults-Cam sensor and one exhaust manifold sensor (oxy). Was told oem parts were fitted and total cost was £310 fitted ,wasn`t sure on parts prices at the time,needed car so told them to do it. Seems a tad expensive on the labour to me ?? Throttle still sticks,seems to be a trait of the car having read up on it.

    Just my twopenneth

    I thought £45+vat/hr was a decent labour price for an Indy

    Maybe they charged for "exhaust cooling time" (not on bill) When queried about labour they said it was a "fixed price" for each bit. No print out for diagnostic either. Still looks like 2 hours labour whichever way I look at it,well miffed.
