I really hate getting anything done on a car as I don't feel I can trust any of the dodgy looking businesses. As a biker, I know where to take my motorcycle for good quality work and am knowledgable enough to assess the quality, but for the cars, I have a vague idea, but not really.
I've been to Prestige Autos and got a simple job done and they gave me a fair price. I've also used Five Star MOT for MOTs and minor work and they're OK too. Halfords auto centre in Sydenham, conversely, were woeful.
Does anyone have any recommendations of local garages?
