As title.... I need some names of reputable independent garages in the region. Preferrably Newcastle/Gateshead area or thereabouts.
I often advise other ppl to go to an idependent in favour of Vx main dealer but TBH I wouldnt have a clue where I should be looking in this area for one.
Im gonna need all these fitted (I WILL SUPPLY THE PARTS SO ITS LABOUR ONLY)
On top of the labour I will also need the necessary 5yr coolant, maybe an oil/filter change (would usually do this myself) BUT and its a big BUT.... I may need a new Head Gasket!!!
Any idea on prices for this lot??? I really have no idea as I do all work myself...... not really upto doin this myself tho
Any help would be greatly appreciated
PS: Whats the goin rate for oil/filters and/or water pump with trade club? Just got my card but wondering if its cheaper to buy a pattern pump or a genuine unit with discount
