    Angel Tuning have new management. They seem honest and fair and worth a try.

    In fairness to Angel Tuning, I used them a few years ago on my previous car and the service and results were outstanding. They took the time to answer all my irritating questions promptly and in depth. The guy who came out (Nigel) was as knowledgeable as he was enthusiastic and did a superb job.

    However, I recently contacted them to enquire about my latest car and was wholly disappointed with the response I received.

    It appears that the Nigel I met and responded to me previously was the founder and owner but he has left. It also appears after a bit of digging (I called and asked for him!) that the Steve Barby you refer to has also left (he wrote me a response to my last enquiry before now - only I wrote the car off before I could get it done!).

    The reply I got was from a Simon. He sent me an email with limited information (when before I got loads from Steve and Nigel!) so I asked him for some more detail. He requested my reg number which I duly sent them and the only extra info I got back from him was that my car was silver!

    Seems from this thread and my experience that the company I used before and was recommended to and used by a friend is not the company it once was and is now in different hands but using the same name.

    I only came here as I was searching to see if I could find out anything more as I really wanted to use Angel due to my previous experience but it appears not to be good news - anyone know any different or where Nigel/Steve have gone?

    I have to report that Angel Tuning have now made full reparation to my car, I had a call last week from the new Owner/Manager Oliver Smith who did everything possible to make good the damage and mistune on my car.

    I received a call out of the blue from Oliver Smith who was aghast at the treatment I received at the hands of the people in charge at the time of my problems.

    A gesture of good will on their part means that my faith in the company is fully restored, not least because they didn't have to do anything and it is obvious that they are anxious to repair any damage to their good name.
    With people like that at the helm, it is reasonable to assume that you r car will receive the very best of attention.
