For those of you that live near Medway...........

I recently had to get the wifes Fiesta fixed, I went to Royal Engineering that Greg mentioned but they didnt have equipment to fix the fault.

They told me to go to a place called "Kings" which is near Strood. The place was a domestic looking double garage :confused: behind the owners house.

I went in expecting a bloke smoking a roll up in one hand and a hammer in the other :( , but how wrong I was :).

The owner and his assistant had the most upto date computer diagnostic equip' all the tools had their own place and on talking to him he showed me a big blue machine on its own trolley that was solely a MB diognostic computer :eek: .

He was actually working on a super charged Jag' XJR when I collected car.

I asked why he wasnt in Yellow pages and he said he was but under Electrical and Air Con' specialist only.

The reason is he doesnt want people bothering him asking for a cheap job as he believes in doing a good job and doing it once. He has been there for 20+yrs and he says 99% of the work is done by word of mouth.

Guess were my car will be going :D .

Sorry for long post, but a good garage deserves a banana :bannana: or two :bannana: :bannana: .

Oh, and even the wifes noticed how good her cars going, thats got to be a first :rolleyes: .

Hi Dave,

Good to see you back. The garage is in Westergate road.

If you drive along Brompton Farm Rd (B2108) just before you reach the big Jct with Gravesend Rd its the last turning on the right.

As you turn into Westergate Rd its a double garage with blue doors just on the right. There are no signs or anything, go through the garden gate (Literally) on the right of the building and you'll see the entrance.

I have'nt yet to get my car done but by what I saw and how the wifes car is going I was impressed.

Pop along and see what you think Dave, I know you were in the same game for years so would like to hear your impressions.

I know the house you are talking about, my sister used to live off of Westergate road many years ago.

I'll pop in and have a chat next time i'm over that way.
