    Hope all are well.

    Just a post to say how thoroughly impressed I have been with "Dips" at Custom cars. http://www.thecustomcars.com

    Dips is well known throughout the Bmw car scene and was a true gentlemen and a pleasure to do business with.

    I work seven days a week so time is limited and I had a few items I needed carrying out on the M.
    I just wanted to take the car somewhere that would cover all mechanical issues as well as the bodywork area.

    Even though Dips was extremely busy with car shows etc and the garage was full to the brim with customers cars he still decided to take me on and worked most of the weekends/evenings on it.

    Dips updated me daily with all works carried out and what was refreshing was the amount of "pictures" he sent on various stages of the work which is exactly what I wanted but was always weary to ask in the past from other dealers

    Some of the work carried out:-

    1. Mot carried out and passed with no advisories

    2. Front (stone chipped) bumper completely re-sprayed in interlagos Blue

    3. CS Alloys refurbed.

    4. Handbrake adjusted.

    5. All window door trim/seals renewed.

    6. Complete set of BMW springs fitted.

    7. Complete car bodywork detail and engine clean.

    I know that there are various alloy specialists with good reputations but with custom cars they also carry out mechanical/servicing as well so you can do EVERYTHING at one place!

    Very, very impressed with Dips at custom cars and will continue to use them in the future....

    Dips is a gent and always a pleasure to meet.

    I was hoping to catch up with him again at Gaydon but sadly I had to cancel.

    The Custom cars stand stood out last year at Gaydon for the quality of the cars and the enthusiastic staff and members displaying their cars.

    As Dips is soooo busy we don't hear too much from him.

    Thanks Pony.

    Hope to start one soon.

    Its just nice to keep updated with car progress and even though Dips was very busy his customer service was very impressive and sourced many parts for me as I kept adding to the list!

    Any proffesional photographers on cutters?

    Yes being kept up to date and sent regular photographs while being busy is rare trait. Don't think you could expect BMW Dealers to do that.

    Which other BMWs did he have there ?
    When I went there he had about 2x E46 M3s, 2x E30s and a few others

    When you put those new BMW centre caps I think you have to pop them from behind rather than with screwdriver and potentially mark the alloys
