    Wow! An honest garage.

    I took my Zaffy in for a service and cam belt change this week to a little garage in the New Forest. When they put it all back together it was misfiring they said that the coil pack had probably gone. It was running fine when I dropped it off. He ordered a new coil pack and fitted it but it was still misfiring. He eventually phoned me back and said that they had found a broken wire that they must have damaged so the coil pack was'nt required thus saving me 100 big ones. Kinda restores you faith in human nature does'nt it.

    personaly i'd be using this place again. its very honest of them to admit a fault that wasnt yours (i must admit many probly would) so my hat goes off to them.

    my mechanic i have to drive 25 miles to go see but he is a good mate and always happy to do work on the bus. i recon he'll be more than happy to take it for a road test now that it has quite a bit more than standard power

    Yeah I definately will be using them again. My mum and dad live down there so I am there quite alot. Its very rare that you come across someone that honest, he could quite easily have tucked me up.
