This is a thread for members to post up positive reviews of businesses or self-employed service providers outside of the A2OC, that they have dealt with in the course of maintaining and improving their A2's. If you've received quality workmanship, excellent service, good prices etc., that other members could also benefit from, feel free to let everyone know :)

Please include the name and as much contact information as you can for each recommendation, and a summary of what you bought from them.
The first post below has very sensibly been given a bold title to show what sort of service is recommended and to aid searching, and also a date that it was purchased 👍 This would be a good format to follow for other recommendations.

Disclaimer just in case: any recommendations posted here are the opinions of the members posting them and not an endorsement by the A2OC.

If you want to post recommendations for the services provided by other members of A2OC, the place to do that is on their Services Offered threads which can be found here.

If like me you have the increasingly common alternator pulley failure or maybe your alternator has died or just for preventative maintenance, I would highly recommend the services of Mark at Rotating Electrics in Birmingham as he did a fabulous job fully reconditioning my Bosch 140amp alternator off my 2003 '53' plate TDI 75 which he restored to brand new condition both cosmetically and internally and fitted it with a new genuine factory fit INA pulley (please ask for a genuine pulley or a non-genuine one could be fit) all for the grand total of £70 (01-07-2020)

Although not something I required I also asked the question regarding starter motor reconditioning costs due to the squeeky overrun that most cars seem to experience and he quoted £55 for this service 👍
