Take it to your nearest primary school, they would have more of a clue than Kwik fit

I think that is an insult to the teaching profession, unless it's the pupils you're talking about

These guys sound like "Cockpit" we have here.

Beautiful, clean, high tech garages that do stuff like wheels/oil. Nice waiting room with free snacks. At the time I had no idea, but after buying my alfa I noticed 2 wheels were installed wrong direction, I swapped them but the alignment was wrong. I went to do it and they fixed it but my wishbones rubber was almost finished, some bolts were broken, anti-roll links were actually fake chinese parts that did not fit properly so why they did not notice? They just set the car to drive nicely but about to brake down in the next 400 km (because the links were so on the edge and not bolted in place at all).

Thankfully, a little voice told me to get my "bones" serviced in a nice indie garage.


Oh there is also B-Quik. Usual shameless western name appropriation. The sad part is that these big name slowly kill the small ma&pop shops.

PS: My only experience with CockFit but it is a safe bet they're the same as KiwkPit.

I go to Kwik Fit for tyres and exhausts and find them professional at fitting those. I did go for one MOT, but never again. I certainly wouldn't trust them with my aircon. The Alfa dealer has done mine twice, once cost about 80 I think and the other time was when they replaced the ordinary radiator and regassed the aircon as part of the job (so consider this option if your radiator is dodgy!) From choice, I would use the Alfa dealer or an Alfa specialist for aircon regassing.

Its all about low price hunts.... People in Holland also go for the so-called. White petrol stations like Tango etc. To save .5 cents a litre petrol...... Big deal !
For aircon you go to a real aircon specialist !
