    Old thread but going to test him out on friday t for my lower intake valve vacuum leak instead of my usual Indy rsj. Will update how it goes but the offer of a loan car is already a bonus on service.

    Hi, I've owned my e90 M3 for about 4 months now, the engine light came on yesterday, not driven it since, scared of what BMW are going to charge so thought I'd try the forums! Will give this guy a call as I'm local(ish) to him....

    thanks for the info!

    I offer free diagnostic scans in exchange for charity donations but I dont think I even use my generic code reader on your m3, as that e90 isnt covered by my PAsoft or INPA software odbc connections as your car needs a kcan connection

    Think he charges £40 for initial diagnosis

    Hey Guys,

    Yep Jo Darby is a top bloke. He always knows what to do and the quality of his work and customer service are excellent. He does great work and keeps the cost down. I recommend him, he knows his cars.

    Drive safe,

    Jo has had quite a few hours with my car trying to locate a persky vac leak. His no fix no fee policy is excellent
    but i did get him to change my handbrake shoes and leaky rocker gasket and did an excellent job
    Its not bmw showroom but the loan cars are available is a great bonus above usually indys,. I had a 2013 116D with only 1000 miles on the clock
    reasonable prices too. sounds like everyone here is kissing his ass, but its not without reason

    I also have had work done by Jo. He is very good and I echo all the sentiments above. He sorted my valvetronic quickly, even worked on it into the evening as I needed it back the next day. Top bloke and ill be going back soon.

    Just called Jo for a quote on a ZF auto box full service. Seems a nice bloke which is what you need when dealing with issues etc. My mates all recommend Jo so he must be good.
