[font="calibri;"]We all know that Jimmy is a good guy, but I thought I would pop up a quick review of the work that he recently carried out on my car. [/font]

[font="calibri;"]After going stage 3 though vocky, just as I picked up my car the group buy for the Harrop came about. As I had the internals, the last stage is actually quite cheap. Stage 2 is still the most cost effective, the stage 3 jump is massive, but stage 3 to the harrop isn’t too bad as it is just the charger (more or less).[/font]

[font="calibri;"]So Jimmy picked my car up from Bristol fitted a saab sump that he sourced, the tmap sensor, the harrop, the necessary injectors, the fez uprated heater and also did a marathon job of sorting out my wiring in the car as it was a complete mess. Oh, and an uprated fuel pump. Oh, and fitted back in the ECU that had been sent off for the Dutch software![/font]

[font="calibri;"]Jimmy works like a machine and I am very sure that he counted his hours very generously in my favour, as there is no way that I can comprehend doing all of that work in the time he quoted me for. To be clear Jimmy is an absolute perfectionist. [/font]

 

[font="calibri;"]I don’t know what to say other than a big thankyou to him and the work that he has put in and for giving me back the gift of having a running vx again! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to any of you guys as he is a valuable asset this side of the country. [/font]

 

[font="calibri;"]Next stage is working with his contact for my respray…[/font]

I should have put up a review at the time for all of the great and hard work that you have done on my car over the years Mike. Honestly if it wasnt for the forum and the support of you good people I would have sold the car many many years ago - it shocked me to realise the other day that I bought my VX in 2006.
