TUT We All Love Good Service?

After all the work on Bela I tougt she would benefit from a 4 wheel alaignment. She had rear end done powerflex and springpan arms etc. So I thought Id take her to a local place that advertised this sort of thing and guess what 50 later she was transformed, so I thought well I might as well get the ac sorted 50 later fab!
Just goes to show these guys are out there.....because unlike the last two servicing jobs Ive had done that actually WORK the big job on the pads +discs done by a specialist dont...coz they are still squeeling like a pig after they fitted parts that they said wouldnt Oh and they were Bendix discs that they charged me 240.00 for.
Ive had a gutsfull of so called specialists praying on us coz we think we are driving some form of supercar
The specialist im speaking of appeared in last issue of Autoitalia they made bold statements but as is the norm these days it dont count for nothing!
Some of you will probably leap to their defence ok youve got something to protect..I however bought the CAR from them and if I knew then what I know now...well I wouldnt be ranting.
Do the job right muppets!

Good for you, i have my GTV serviced by a local garage who dont rip me off, my last bill for brake pads all round, alternator belt, rear shocks came to 245+vat for the parts, which were OE parts and including fitting.. There is a specialist i spoke to he wanted substancially more.

I'm not going to say all specialists are expensive because they aren't some are very good, and these are the ones you can never get booked into because they are always busy, however i think that some dont want to do smaller jobs or work on the older cars.

Anyway everyone has a choice in this life....

When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth
