I've just moved to live near Lucky Motors and there is always an interested selection of cars parked outside (there's also a 911 specialist next door). As they're so close I was wondering if anyone had any experience / recommendation / complaints about them.

Cheers

No-one used them? I don't really fancy being a pioneer after my previous experiences with a supposedly reputable indie!

Search for tower porsche on pistonheads. Some good reports, some possibly not so good.

No idea who/what Lucky motors are sorry (are they a merc specialist?)

Havent used (and live around the corner) - best local for small works (non merc specialist) and MOT is Millenium on Great Guidflord St (about 400m from Luckys).

Friendly, helpful and bloke owns a clk so knows a bit about them (but again, not a merc specialist).

Not sure if I'd feel completely comfortable taking my car to someone that thought Lucky Motors was a good name for his business. :D

I prefer knowledge & skill to luck anyday.

I wouldn't go to lucky motors ..

Unless you stand over them and watch them replace parts, they don't.

My mates 124 coupe went in for a new driver's door window regulator. It was never fitted. The old one was repaired .. which predictably broke later.

Thanks for the update. I had my SL MOT'd at Millenium and they seemed pretty good but would prefer a specialist to look over it at the next service after having had it done last time by George Fraser (see other messages for the problems I had). Not sure I trust any of the work done so want it properly gone over this time!

Buccal: Tower Porsche are next door... Some lovely cars parked outside on occasion but thats not necessarily a recommendation!!!

Thanks again

John
