    LIST OF RECOMMENDED LOCAL SERVICES/SUPPLIERS

    List any recommended body shops, part suppliers, modifiying shops, mechanics, tyre places, exhausts places, local vauxhall dealers, ICE shops, alarm fitters etc etc.

    List them in here for a complete trustable directory of local companies.









    Please do not list companies you have not had good service with as this only opens a can of worms and Astra-sport does not want to be accountable for any other members point of view. cheers
