As these are closer than Simply Alfas I am thinking of trying them next service.

Anyone have any work done by them? Any comments (good or bad)

Brake fluid changed , thanks Rich... sad to say he had a bad fire in his workshop prior to Christmas. He's back working but waiting to have skin grafts on a badly injured leg and foot. He's lost a bit of bisiness while he's been off so if you need anything doing he would be really happy to see you

Hope i am wrong but passed Richards workshop a few times recently and no cars and shutters down...................... then other day Workshop to let signs, Real shame i fear the fire had longer term effects with various time consuming medical processes he had to have, I know he was struggling with mobility when i saw him just after Christmas and on his own must have been a real struggle,

Damn shame if he has had to quit the workshop i know i always trusted his advice, Hope its not the last we see of R & R

He's still operating, but I think he was due back in hospital for skin grafts so may have had to close up for a while as its a nasty injury he has suffered. He's working on new gearbox for me, so I know he's still going
