Anybody got any experience of independent MB specialist in Bristol, specifically BG Griffiths?

Car is booked-in for next Monday, so opinions very much welcomed.

Very good. Has done a plethora of work on our ML.

Also recommend Golden Hill Garage for intermediate servicing + non specialist parts.

It is a bugger to find: A3029 Winterstoke road - opposite the imported car dealers and Mr Clutch. Small gap in the wall - drive in.

There is not much parking and getting back out onto the road can be a 'mare....

I use Three Points. Unit 29-31 Bonville Business Centre, Bonville Road, Brislington, Bristol, BS4 5QR Tel. 0117 335 2333

Good value, courtesy cars available on request, or they can pick your car up and deliver it back to you. They've picked mine up in the morning and dropped it off where I work at the end of the day. Can't fault them.

Isn't this post in the wrong section?

One of the techs there, Steve, is a very good friend of mine and is one of the most talented techs I know. He is not nicknamed "the oracle" for no reason!!

Just picked up the car from BG Griffiths and they did a superb job. One broken coil spring and one corroded one replaced; a faulty injector replaced; 2 new brake hoses and new front suspension bushes. Plus they found a corroded area on the front sub-frame so they cut it out and welded in a new section for which they charged only £30. Total bill £660 and I think it's the best money I've ever spent on a car - drives like a new'un now.

EDIT: forgot to say that the total cost included £150 to fix the instrument pack which was missing lots of pixels.

Highly recommended specialist.

Parkway in Fishponds - about as Northwest as you will get for a Merc Specialist.

Otherwise I recommend Golden Hill Garage on Brooklands Avenue (off Kellaway Avenue).

Very good guys who can sort 90% of problems and do very good and very observant servicing, i.e. they will pick stuff out and tell you very honestly if a part needs replacing - in fact they have picked up on stuff that main dealers have missed. Only thing they don't have is STAR.

I have just had front brakes and new tyres from Three Points, Brislington Bristol.

No B/S, and cost less than half MB at Cribbs quoted, plus collect and return service. Very pleased indeed.

Plenty of useful info from Paul regarding servicing and what does (and just as importantly doesn't necessarily) need doing at the next service.

Recommended. I will certainly use again.
