    Highly rated by the Porsche folks on Pistonheads .. expensive, and owner can be a bit abrupt apparently.

    I'd suggest you also look at Motorcare in Tunbridge Wells and Tonbridge Coachworks. I've visited both (with Kent region of PCGB) and been impressed with what I saw. Another that's not that far from Aylesford is JRM in Rye, did some bodywork on my 968 coupe and made a fantastic job of it.

    Kelly of KDS Keltec is a bit of a "legend" on Detailing World website.

    He won't be cheap but his work is very good.

    Check and check again - I took my 968 to a bloke who was "well respected" on detailingworld - the results were unimpressive - to put it very politely. Satisfy yourself that the people really do know what they are doing, make sure you fully itemise - in writing - what you want and expect to be done, check it thoroughly when you collect it, and pay by credit card just in case you find a need to dispute.

    I know nothing about KDS, for all I know they're trustworthy, brilliant etc, but after my experience with Drive and Shine Godstone - cynical does not even get close!!

    I've visited Kelly at KDS and though I haven't had any work done yet , I was very impressed with the work they were doing. HTH

    I wish.
    I've had bodywork fixed on our Jazz (to an excellent standard) by 'Scuffbusters' in TW and they do a variety of stuff... might be worth a try.

    Very good on price as well...

    KDS has massive respect on forums and his work is stunning from the reviews / customers that have used him.

    Def one of the best in the UK if not the best for his sanding work.
