clover leaf garage in gloucester
Well my GTV 2.o ts went to the garage today to have its rear bushes replaced as its cheaper and better than buying crap rubber oem parts as told by some of the guys on here. Also a few other bits and pieces s it didnt seem to be quite right after i replaced the thermostat and maf. So about an hour after i left the guy at cloverleaf in gloucester rings and says the car in in a bad way, running really badly , the cams had been set wrong by whoever changed the cam belt and the variator hadnt been changed when the cam belt had been done. Basically set up really badly and he wasnt suprised that it had been drinking loads of petrol. Also the bushes were completely $£&@@ed and he said it was pretty dangerous like that. Anyway, long story short(ish) the guy with additional help, changed all the rear bushes which he in his words described as being a complete ******* of a job, took off the cam belt, put a new variator on, reset the cams properly, did a diagnostic test , reset the airbag all for £580.....TOP BLOKE and TOP garage. Its nice to hear the man say "I hate it when the cars run badly, Ill have running perfect for you", you can tell theyre there to help rahter then just grabbing your money.
