Best place for a Service


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys, I am sure this has been asked before but can't find the thread. Feel free to point me in the right direction.. however.. my car is due a service, only done 8k miles since new have it booked in with Nissan West on Friday but they haven't given me a price and they also don't inspire confidence . So, can anyone recommend a place in or near London for a service. I feel like a specialist would be better, but happy to be educated.

I take it you want a main dealer? Or are you happy to go to a good independent ?  We use TGM sport in Fleet, just off the M3 he specialises in Honda and Nissan.  We would trust him with anything. Always genuine and never been over charged, doesn’t do anything unnecessary   Ask for Tom

I would prefer an indy tbh. I am considering buying the parts from Nissan and getting someone I know to do it. I mean I could do it but won't get a stamp in the book.

I got quoted £332 by Nissan London West. The guy asked for my reg, then asked how old the car was, then asked if I needed an interim service, then told me I need a Major service (because the car is 4 years old) I told him I was happy with interim as the car has only done 8k miles, then he proceeded to ask me if the car was petrol or diesel

Needless to say I am not taking it to them.

Worrying isn’t it! I don’t know where you are exactly but we are in GU24 in Surrey and we go to Tom at TGM in Hampshire   All nissan parts and we don’t need to tell him his job

Yes and have done.   There’s no where to go when you get there, Its in the middle of no where, but he has a waiting room, just make sure you tell him when you book in.

I can highly recommend Abbey Motorsport in Oxted, Surrey.

They carried out a P1 service on mine back in February while I waited, or they do have a couple of loan cars .

I am facing the possibility of looking for a closer place to take the Zed next February, having been with Norton Way since the car was bought from them new.

I don't know anything about Desira in Norwich - I think there were people on here when we had 350's who used them.    But I have been researching and there is a local place in Attleborough who do a lot of work on Race Cars and does Service & MOT's so I may well be trying them for the Zed and the Mini, to be fair they won't be much cheaper than Norton Way, but add to that a 3 hour round trip and 150 miles in possible bad weather.  So at the moment that's my possible plan, so switching to a independent place.  As the car gets older I will probably need a place that will do all types of work.

I have been so far waiting 7 months for an update on a new steering wheel - so I may be falling out of love a little bit with my dealer.

A good indie specialist is worth his weight in gold to us enthusiasts.

When I decided to go "outside the box" and buy my Nismo back in February, I knew nothing about the car or any indie support that might be out there. I actually wouldn't have bought it if I hadn't found a recommended specialist - I really didn't want to go main dealer for various reasons.

After some research I found Abbey who are just 12 miles from me - so, it was all systems go from there!
