Trusted M specialists are often hard to come by...

Last week I used RD Motorsport as recommended by others on here. They are at Newbridge Roundabout in Edinburgh.

Had my E46 M3 in for Cylinder Head Gasket repair, Vanos checks, and a few other engine parts.

Cannot recommend highly enough. Kept me informed throughout and sent a load of photos of the work as it was ongoing.

Rob is very knowledgable and knows these cars inside out. He has a genuine love for M cars

I've just had a look at his facebook page and his latest post is about replacing the rod bearings on an e92 M3.

Good to know there could be someone to do that kind of work up here.

+1 for Rob @ RD! I've had loads of maintenance done (actuators, bearings, servicing etc.) and a few mods too and can't recommend him enough!

I put my E92 down to Rob for rod bearings after my local specialist told me he wasn't interested.
I also asked him to give the car a once over, replace the thermostat and after a good discussion give it a major service.

I generally do all of my own work and after a discussion with Rob I felt that the car was in safe hands. When I arrived to pick the car up, he had all of the parts he removed on the bench and took the time to go through them all. Pointing out what was wrong with them.
Will definitely be back down in the future

Rob is an Absolute M Wizard and I wouldn't trust anyone else with my Pride and Joy his attention to detail is just crazy. He has fitted springs, hybrid turbos, downpipes along with all the general servicing requirements cant recommend Rob enough your M is in safe hands !

This thread should maybe be covered under the 'Garages' section as well, just spent about 15 mins looking for it there!

Another +1 for Rob and his business. My E92 M3 went in for rod bearings, engine mounts and a new battery a few weeks ago. The quality of service is absolutely amazing. Full run-down on the condition of the car, about 100 pictures of the work done, all the old parts available for inspection and an honest appraisal of what needs done to make it perfect. It probably helps that he clearly has a huge passion for what he does - I'd have absolutely no hesitation in recommending or using Rob's services again. Top man!

Another +1 for Rob. I took it to him last year for an inspection II on my E46, and we made a plan to refresh and future proof it. Went back in start of this year for subframe reinforcement and refresh the back end. Going back to him soon for the front end. As others have said, top quality service start to finish. Lots of honest information about what needs to be done, lots of pics of the work being done, and lots of attention to detail. Couldn't recommend him highly enough.
