I wanted to put up a genuine recommendation here. This weekend I took my car to see Kevin or the BM Wizard (also a member on here) who is based in the North West near Shrewsbury/Wrexham. Now I was nervous taking my car somewhere new as like the rest of you it’s my P and J and I pour a small fortune into it. It needed about five jobs doing as follows:
Inspection 2 service
O/S curtain airbag replacement and reset – and sorting all the interior problems this had caused (lights not working etc)
New front splitters
Parking sensors fixing
Road noise after the bump looking at sorting
In total this was I knew allot of work and with my local indy quoting frankly disgusting money I was keen to find another option.
I got speaking to Kev on here and he did seem to know his stuff, so I made the journey up to his workshop for a one kind of mass fix all on the car.
He managed all of this within a day and for the same price as an inspection 2 from the indy! The total price all in was £380 bearing in mind the air bag is 5 hours labour alone that’s pretty damn good! That included the service kit oil everything.
I think he saved me about £450 over taking it to an indy, but what impressed me most was his attention to detail he even fixed things I didn’t ask him to as part of the service. I’m used to mechanics scratching their heads and taking in breath sharply before totting up stupid sum of money where as Kev just got the job done with no fuss and below rock bottom prices. I travelled quite a way to see him used say £50 in fuel but it was well well worth it. This bloke is an ex bmw mechanic has all the gear and is cheap as chips.
Just wanted to share this with you guys because he did a great job for me (I’ve already started my next list of jobs!).
edit: for got to add he will charge £30/ph for labour if you come off the forum.
