I'm thinking we could meet somewhere and have a coffee and then convoy over to Huntingdon.

It may be worth going over to have a look at the new set up and talk to the techs at Bartletts, especially if there are any doubts?

In the interests of transparency I have known the company since I bought my M3 (4 years) and they are one of the main advertisers in the magazine that I publish.

I would keep well clear. They didn't appreciate me calling them out for incorrect procedures/methods, breaking £1500 worth of parts on my car and denying they caused them - despite me having a full inspection by BMW a week prior to it going to them.

They refused to release my car unless I paid for something they broke - they didn't even need to touch that part to do the work requested on the car.

If I didn't have a terminally ill mother at the time I would have taken them to court.

I had very similar issues with them. Touching stuff that didnít need touching, breaking it. Then charged me.

Mine went in for RTABs, came out having spent over £1200
