Hello Folks... a great thread to have!
looking on the google map, I can see a gap in the essex area for recommendation:
South Hill Garage
They are independent and KNOW renaults!
I found them when seeking a quote for a cambelt change on a Mk2 Safrane - a london area franchised dealer quoted £600+ whereas South Hills was less than £400 (incl. the drivebelt). Problems with a Mk1 safrane left me frustrated with the franchised dealers when their 'workshop CDs' didn't have my car as it was too old (is 8 years too old??). Anyway Southhills have fixed every problem thrown at them and that includes my Vel Satis too.
+ Reasonable prices
+ Courtesy Car
+ they KNOW Renaults
+ they wont replace parts that dont need replacing yet
Currently in Safrane2Satis's garage:
2002 Renault Vel Satis 2.2dCi Privilege
