    Talking Mates Rates

    Mates Rates are brilliant. Had Heater Plug changed, all brakes cleaned and greased (squeaking when brakes released) and a steering rod arm (Wheel shake). Car was in garage from 0900 till 1700. £40 all in!!!!! Bargain. Bet i could of added at least an O at a dealer!!!

    Even better thing is the garage he works at fixes lots of Vec C taxis so they know the faults better than the cars on board computer!!! When mine said it needed a new atmospheric sensor or wire to the sensor he knew it was lying and it needed the EGR valve etc cleaning out. Once cleaned out the fault magically disappeared!!!
