Hi

I’m new to VX ownership (lightening yellow no62) and am looking for recommendations for a specialist in Wiltshire. I do most of my own work but like to have a trusted specialist for stuff I can’t do at home. Initially I’m looking for a geo check but would like to find someone who does everything.

I’ve come across Neil Garner in Kemble but believe Neil is no longer involved in the business and wondered if anyone base used them since it changed hands? I think the guy running it now is called Ricardo?

Any recommendation appreciated!

Back on Track (Guildford) is a drive but worth while.

I travel the 1.5 hours each way as they know what they are doing and well respected for the south of England lotus and VX ers.
Looked after my VX for the last 7 years plus.

I've used Neil Garner for many years, as far as I can tell its the same people working there just the owner emigrated to New Zealand I think.

Thanks Moonlander that’s reassuring. I was wondering if it was a “sold the name” situation which could be hit or miss! I assume you have always been happy with their service and expertise? I’m probably being a bit over cautious but having had some amazing marque specialists with 911’s and M3’s in the past Im keen to pick a good one for the VX!

Yes they've always been very good - I'm on first name terms with them now. They have a lot of TVRs and Lotuses there.

People will probably argue the toss on this as there is a lot of love for BoT on this forum, however I have always used Plans Motorsport, which is also in Surrey, but in Dunsfold (where the TopGear test track is).  Always had great service from them and never had a problem with their work, and they are a great bunch of people.

 

Also I use Hoffmans in Henley-on-Thames who are a bit more expensive, but also very good.
