    Mileage : 140000

    Default AntSSS Works his magic on my CDTi 150

    Well where do I start

    Feb 2012 - After a very useless vx garage put petrol oil in my diesel and refused to change it, ant offered his services.

    Job 1 Oil change done.

    While changing oil we talked car stuff and came to light that my thermostate may need changing as the car was taking longer than normal to get to temp, and the breaks need bleeding.

    April 2012 - Jobs 2 and 3 Thermostat and breaks done.

    Each visit has also had the car connected for a diags check.

    Feb 2013 - Job 4, Oil change again, after i bottled it when attempting myself.

    March 2013 - Can here a hissing noise from engine suspect hoses to turbo or turbo on way out. A morning visit which involved a few live data tests, a front bumper removal and thoroughly checking over the hoses, leads to a suspect turbo.

    So Job 5 is waiting to be booked in.

    As you can see I have no problems what so ever in using ant, he truly is a life saver. I am more than happy to hand over my money to him rather than a garage, If you wish, you can watch him work on your car and in the process you learn lots of stuff, you'd never get that from a garage.

    Highly recommend ant's services

    Chris

    Yes it does - but for the sake of an additional £40 its a no brainer. its the correct way to do it.
