    Looking to get a major service done, anyone recommend an indi in Edinburgh area ?
    Also, what should be done on a major service ? should it include ATF - or are they sealed units ?

    Only guys I could recommend are in Stirling.

    Major service would include all filters, ATF would be done if this hasn't been done in xx miles, someone can advise on the mileage but I'd be looking at something like 60k.

    ATF depends on which auto box?
    5 speed, 7 or 9? All different intervals.

    I'd agree with rf065 regarding Mackies - worth a trip to Glasgow in my book. I haven't used them myself (yet) but my Jag will be going there for its auto trans fluid change in due course.

    Here's a quote from a Google review left by the much missed Druk:

    Anyone contemplating a gearbox or torque-converter overhall should be under no misconception as to the expertise of this company. Having just done a factory tour with the Mercedes Club one cannot fail to be impressed by the level of knowledge, cleanliness and equipment displayed.
    From the enthusiasm shown by the boss and his staff to the in-house custom designed valve body testing rig and automatic TC welders everything points to this being an expert firm in their chosen field.
    Off the shelf converters and gearboxes are available and if not in stock the turn-round time of your own unit is given as just a few days.
    A first class firm and to say that I enjoyed my tour is an understatement.
