I need a GOOD garage

Post by Truth » Fri Jan 05, 2018 9:59 pm

Having used Atlas Auto BMW specialists in York for the last few jobs, the mechanical work was good albeit expensive. Though the car care was terrible. Car damaged and then bodged had to get repaired properly. Anyway another story, won’t be going back to them.
B&M autocare in Pudsey did some warranty work when I first bought the car and it looked like a blind woodsman put the bumper back on and I had to redo very simple and easy work.
My mate has said to avoid Cramag in Yeadon (Leeds) so I’m now looking at taking Heidi (my Z4mc) to Peter Van Der Veer abit further away from home but wanted to know if any of you knowledgable lot had any views on him or any garages in a reasonable radius of Harrogate just north of Leeds. If not I will take a good couple of drives to the other side of the Pennines to use Mr Wilks’ Trusted Indy. Any help muchly appreciated.
As usual. “All the best”
Z4MC

I've used Anthony for oil changes / brakes. Really excellent guy. Would use for all servicing but want to maintain fbmwsh. If not for this I'd much rather take my car to Anthony for all work than the dealer.

My first post! Try these guys. They had another Z4M when I took mine in recently and knew their stuff.

Phil at CPC in Amersham knows his stuff but has his flaws, mainly getting updates and their car park can be tight and cars have been known to get scuffed or dinged at times. They're moving to new premises soon so hopefully they'll have a bit more space.
What Phil doesn't know about M cars isn't really worth knowing, particuarly S54 engines.

There is a BMW specialist in Harrogate in Starbeck, just off Camwall rd. I used them briefly when I had my S54 Z3M and seemed pretty knowledgeable with good rates. http://www.intune-car-services-harrogate.co.uk/bmw.html.

That was quite a few years ago now mind so can't really recommend from recent experience.

Austin has used Peter for work on his Z4MC so hopefully he’ll be along soon to report.

I’ve only heard good things from the guys who used him on the 1 series forum.
