Default FB Tuning

Just to share my experience, found Richard to be mentioned a lot in the Scooby community so instead of going to Paul at Xtreme I decided to change it up, and to be fair Richard come in a fair bit cheaper. Also I use the car for work, Paul needed 4 days, Richard took 1! Not to slate Paul at all as I've used him in the past and his work is great, but I think I've been converted for now.

Had Cambelt, water pump, clutch and flywheel replaced and had some other issues diagnosed.

Found Richard to be very honest and didn't beat around the bush, neither did he try and sell me anything above what I had asked for. His prices were very reasonable and put me onto Tom at Sprinting Hare JDM who's parts prices were great. (I had never heard of sprinting hare jdm before this).

So I'd very much recommend a visit to Richard if your stuck for somewhere to go, he also just purchased an S203 in white! ...which I was massively jealous of, so I imagine we'll be hearing of this in the near future.

Just taken my new wagon to Rich for a peace of mind health check from him, having seen people mention him on here and with him being about 30 mins from my house it made sense. Didn't have much time to chat as I only dropped it off at 5:30pm but he seemed like a decent bloke, and his S203 looked lovely from what I saw of it. Looking forward to a clean bill of health (fingers crossed!) and an invoice from him later today.

Late to the party i know, Rich mapped my car once when it landed from Japan and the second time after i had the turbo billeted. He also fitted a complete ACT clutch/flywheel.

Everytime he has been spot on and more to the point he has cared for my car, i never thought id meet someone as fussy as me.
