    I had my V6 in with Rentec Autocare in Edinburgh for service and MOT. As always great service and they have new premises (next to there old one) which looks fantastic

    Was back in at SWR today to get some work done on a Porsche Cayenne and i once again can't fault the work or time it took.

    After a chat and bacon roll the Porsche had new disc's & pad's all round and a full service with a super price at the end of it.

    Highly recommend Rentec.

    My Megane 225 Trophy is going into them on Saturday for a new smf & clutch along with a few other bits & bobs.

    Spent the morning at SWR in Stirling with once again a very happy smile on my face.
    Got the following done -

    Oil
    Oil Filter
    Air Filter
    Pollen Filter
    Plugs
    HT Leads
    Full Check Over
    Top up of coolant / Screen Wash

    After that the new Sachs dampers where popped on the car and the AST top mounts cleaned up and re - greased

    An amazing service with a good laugh.

    After purchasing Trophy no.422 on Sunday I thought I'd best get a few prices for the following work:-

    Cambelt & aux belts
    Water pump
    Dephaser
    Oil
    Oil filter
    Air filter
    Pollen filter
    Spark plugs
    Gearbox oil
    Power steering fluid

    Having used Rentec before they were my first call £927, then I called SWR they came in at £720....WOW!
    I gave Rentec a call back to see if they could get anywhere close. Brian called me back 20mins later to say the best they can do is £740. He has admitted that they need to look at their pricing/supplier as the difference between the quotes is massive and to some may this may look like they are charger way over the odds but I genuinely belief this is not the case.

    So I have booked my car in at SWR on the 8th March.

    My car has never been to swr, but I spoke to them twice on the phone were really helpful and took thier time to give me advice, I was booking my car in for something and the guy told me don't waste the petrol a normal garage can do it fine.

    That to me is huge plus to them, there honest and that is the no1 reason when chosing a garage.

    I have heard nothing but good things about andy Gallagher at moorfield aswell, sone friends take there seriously fast cars there
