Recommended Business's / garages in the South Wales Area

Post by MattRoss1313 » 13/10/08 16:21

Seen this idea in a few regions now, if anyone uses or knows of any good businesses or workshops and would like to give them a thumbs up please post up here. If you have had a good deal on parts or had some work done etc. Post up who, where and any contact information. More importantly if they do and OC discount. Lets spread the saving to more of our local members.

Matt :D

ETB in Barry were good to me the other day. For £20 they took 4 tyres off my old wheels, 4 tyres off the new wheels & threw them away(they were wrecked)....then put the tyres off the old wheels onto the new wheels, balanced them & fitted them to the car!!

Thought this was pretty cheap...especially as everywhere else I phoned was £10-15 per wheel plus balancing!!

Their details are...

GotBoost Performance Tuning
http://www.gotboost.co.uk/

Craig at GotBoost is a top bloke, he's located on the Llandow Industrial estate & I've used him for his rolling road power runs/tuning. Good prices & flexible availability. Seems like the man to go to for ECU stuff locally.

Anyone know of anywher in Barry i get a clutch changed at a reasonable cost and fairly quickly?

I pass a B.E.T.S clutch centre on the way to work everyday, but a bit skeptical in case it's just another useless 'fast fit' type place. However the time without my car needs to kept to a minimum as i still need it to get to and from work everyday.

It's not desparate just yet, and i'm sure it'll get me back to teesside if needs be.

cheers :th:
