Good independant garrage in edinburgh

Postby woogeeboo » Fri Mar 03, 2006 1:17 pm

Hi,

I have bought all the kit to replace the cambelt on my MK1 1.8 and a few extra seals and filters etc. I have read the thread regarding Ainslie Park Garage and S&J Motors in Leith, has anyone used them latley, is there any real difference in price or workmanship?

I use Ainslie Park all the time - run by Dale and his dad, Billy - they do what they say they'll do, they don't do what don't need doing - and they don't charge you the earth either. Tell them I send you......


PS I've never used S&J so can't comment

I have used S&J motors in leith for the last four years and always been happy with the service and prices. I'm due a service soon and was thinking of trying Ainslie Park just out of curiosity. They certainly seem to be popular with the guys on the forum.

Whoever you use, let us know how you get on.

I have used S&J motors in leith for the last four years and always been happy with the service and prices.


Paul has now left S&J motors to operate independantly under the name

Cooter's Autocare
30b Salters Road
Wallyford
East Lothian
EH21 8AA
0131 653 0904
07703 573095

and will collect and deliver your car from the Edinburgh area.

He recently did this work for me -

MOT £40
Full Service £90
fit 2 brake pipes £75
repair rear brakes (sticking calliper) £35
repair exhaust (heat shield issues) £20

He picked up the car on the wednesday evening and returned it on the thursday evening, i think this represents good value and, most importantly, i trust him to do the job well.

He already 'looks after' four mx5s so is well familliar with the car.
