    They recently replaced my prop seal, did the exhaust mounts at the same time and a couple of other little bits.

    I wanted to use ETA who were actually cheaper, but their opening hours and lack of courtesy car meant a day's annual leave which I don't have. Mentioned this to Martin at Scotts (Biddenden Motor Works) and he matched the price.

    Overall the job was done well, the car didn't pick up any marks or dirt, had a good long chat with Martin when I picked the car up.... Overall I'm a happy customer and would use them again.

    I have just picked up my car from scotts performance cars and I must say im very impressed with them.

    I had 2 faulty abs sensors that were fixed.

    They also resolved my issue of rear a knocking noise coming from the n/s brakes that had been bothering me for some time. 2 serperate garages local to me stripped the brakes but were unsure of where the noise was coming from. One advised me to change my brake shoes, the other to change my brake pads (even though they were new?!)

    The guys at scotts performance cars worked it out within 5 mins :D

    The problem was with the locking wheel nut. For some reason it was a fraction longer then it should have been. :confused:

    They also checked my subframe... thankfully its all clear!

    I'd highly recommend these guys to anyone. :thumbsup:

    I made the journey from Hertfordshire to have my head gasket done and 4wa a couple of months ago. So impressed I took my car back this week for an inspection 1 and to have an oil leak fixed. Will always take my M here now (well worth the hour drive) and would thoroughly recommend.

    The guys at Scotts have been looking after my X3 for a few years. I think they really showed their worth last year when my front tyres wore badly on the inside. I had them replaced at a tyre shop and had the alignment checked. Tyre shop said it was fine, phoned the guys up, dropped it in, £140 later they found some seized parts, unseized them, re-aligned it and i was away.
    I'd had the car 2 years and it felt like a different vehicle. Before it followed every crease and bump in my very creasy bumpy access road, now it just irons them out with ease.
    I'd always put it down to staggered wide wheels.

    I had some bad experiences with them

    Sadly won’t use again

    Watching 2 mechanics trying to get my car onto a 4 poster lift as it was knackered wasn’t good

    Also seeing them reverse it out with a gearbox next to the drivers door and thinking it’s going to smack into it

    The problem is the location isn’t good with a busy garage next door and loads of cars - there’s simply no room to move

    Had work done had to take the car back (260 mile drive!)

    Had some damage to the car probably from the ramp issue I noticed and Had to pay to put right!

    Same here
    Wouldn’t recommend them either

    I had some work done- I’ve got a feeling it wasn’t done and it’s getting done again soon so be interesting to see the part come off the car to see?!

    They used my E92 front wing as a handle to pick the car park so they can get the jack under it. It ripped the plastic edging inside the wing. Then they did a crappy DIY repair on it. I couldn't be bothered to chase it and soon sold the car after.

    They did similar on mine to get the car high enough so their lift could get underneath it
    It was painful watching them

    The lift was a pile of crap

    I had my z4m wheel alignment done their. They done a decent job and knew what they was was doing, I had a fast road set up being done and the price was reasonable. But as mentioned the access and location are not ideal. I will stick with eta or hnc for service work etc.
