Default URGENT: WHO CAN SERVICE MY SCOOB? (ESSEX)

Hi everyone

RB320 #184 is due a 4 year/40,000 mile service.

I used to go to Graham and Tony at Mr Clutch in Chelmsford but it seems they've moved on.

AMC Subaru want 330, which is IMO a joke considering it's a fairly light service.

The new people at MR Clutch quoted 50, which is an even bigger joke as I want my pride and joy looked after properly!

Does anybody know of a reputable garage in Essex (preferrably near Chelmsford) who can do a top job for around 200?

Cheers

Tone

Why not use Extreme in Chelmsford , Subaru specialist http://www.extremescoobies.co.uk/

looks like a 40k service is around 240 from the link

Have had all of mine serviced there over the years , plenty of people on here use them

I've also heard these guys can do a great job in taking care of ya car, just dont get pulled into Rallytec who are next door. I've only heard through the grapevines that these guys are good at taking care of yacar but more importantly ya wallet!!

I hope Paul has cleared the ramp & shoved it round the back by Thursday as the "Stealth Wagon" is going in for a fettle.

8 year service as it's only done 55k not the more usual 80k. My doesn't time fly.

Extreme Scoobies every time.

Went to Mr clutch once, never again. Drove a few miles down the motorway and the aux belt they had replaced snapped because it wasn't tensioned properly. Also, when I got the car back, the steering wheel was absolutely covered in crap, my hands were black by the time I had got home.

I've taken mine to Paul at Extreme scoobies many a time, and every time I've been well impressed. If you love your scoob, take it to a specialist, not a mainstream garage full of chavs where they don't give a rats **** about it!!
