Question Quarry Motors Sheffield?

Hi folks, Having a really hard time trying to find an indy in the Yorkshire region capable of performing a subframe reinforcement and an inspection 2 on the E46 M3.

Someone pointed me in the direction of Quarry Motors based in Sheffield, which is about as near to me as I've come across so far.

Can't see any mentions of them on this forum so I'm just wondering if anyone else has used these guys or has any knowledge as to whether they're a trusted place?
www.quarry-motors.co.uk

Thanks in advance!

Thanks jamesok, thats reassuring. Will have to see what they quote me.
If its too much I guess I'll bite the bullet and get it booked in with ETA.

I have used them a few times as other have stated they quality of workmanship is good but it’s not cheap. They have a large footprint of scrappers onsite hence getting bits is never an issue if you wanted “used”. It’s quite a big outfit.

I can’t comment on the sub frame work.

My mate had his subframe reinforced there, can't remember the price.
Had plenty of pictures and it looked OK.

He sold the car shortly afterwards though so not sure if it was a good job

Can't really comment on quarry never had any work done there, though they saved my dad a fortune on a second hand idrive unit and never had any problems after.
Just picked my car up from Peter Van Deer Veer in Huddersfield, new clutch, detent springs and smg motor very pleased with the work been done, had a inspection 1 done there late last year too, they can be hard to get in touch with due to the amount of bmw cars they look after, put it this way I won't be using anyone else and a touch cheaper the Quarry they also do subframe repairs I haven't had mine done there yet but will be in the near future

Been given a quote for 1440 (inc VAT) for a subframe reinforcement and full inspection 2 service by Quarry.
I've just emailed Peter Van Der Veer to see if they can give me a quote too.

I need to make a decsion soon, but having a hard time paying Quarry or anyone else roughly the same price as ETA when ETA have such a good reputation and a wealth of experience of these specific jobs.
