Anything you guys recommend around/in south London? There's the kmkautos near me that seems to get decent reviews but we all know how Google etc reviews go. I'd like some first hand experience really.

Thanks.

I use D&T Wise ltd in Bexleyheath whom I'll recommend but that's probably too far from you. KMK might be your best bet.

I'm based in the SW of London and have been to;

BM Sport - not sure they really knew what they were talking about and friends have come forward with average reviews since I went in
Munich Legends - pretty arrogant on the phone when I asked a few more "knowledgeable" questions about servicing and eventually decided to cancel my appointment with them in lieu of Walkers below
Walker Autotech - couldn't fault them - great service, clean and tidy workshop, that's who I'll be going back to in the future :thumbsup:

I also use Walkers as they are just down the road.
The look after my 530d, the Z4M, and the other halfs Cooper S JCW and I simply cannot fault them.

They've been fantastic with every car. The owner Andy Walker is very passionate about the cars and gets his hands dirty himself, which is always encouraging!!

I'm just going to bump this with another thumbs up for Andy @ Walkers Autotech.

My car developed an over heating disorder (coincidentally, it's owner has an over eating disorder... :rofl: ). Scanned the car and the fault came back as fan failure. Ordered up a new one from Harry Fairbairn which, even with 15% discount and free postage, still came to £549 :cry:

Car went in Thursday, phone call Friday to say the loom had been the issue and thus replaced and all back in good working order on Monday. They also washed the car well (i.e. it's not covered in swirls and drying marks, nor water marks) and painted my calipers while it was there. It looks great!
