Putting this up because you don't often see them mentioned in this section, although you do sometimes see people saying there are no GT-R specialists in the South East. Which is why people drive all over the country or pay to have cars transported. Neither of which I was too happy about.

Had my two year service done there, influenced by their reputation. They have not just popped up or bought a franchise off someone else. The fact they are just off the M25 (Junction 6) which was only 30 odd miles from work is very handy.

Very happy. Good service and they also sorted out an imbalance issue (turned out balancing weights looked like they had fallen off!) I had on one of the front wheels, all for a sensible price.

Definite thumbs up from me.
A million times better than my NHPC.

They are about 3 miles down the road from me (I did not know that). Recently got invited down for tea and a chat with Mark. He is away playing with an 8sec drag car this weekend, so will be paying them a visit next weekend

Glad you're having good service from them! The issue I think with a few folk is that you don't really hear of them doing any projects on the forum unlike litchfield, SVM and even RB motorsport. Plus I was quite surprised at Marks response to an issue that a chap I know had with them, but I'm sure there's always two sides to a story!

Always got a few projects on the go but not always GTR's , just finished a 370Z fitted with a Rotorex Super charger , 410 bhp at the hubs , Twin turbo 350Z HR engined car built a few weeks ago 425bhp at the hubs 330lb/ft at 2000rpm 360 lb/ft torque at 4500rpm and 330lb/ft at 7000rpm all from only 0.35bar boost. Got an early model Starlet fitted with built SR20 on the go as well , 400bhp in 800kg should go well I think;

Also spend a lot of time looking after Ludders GTR drag car and John Bradshaw's Project Zed, back at the Pod this weekend with both cars , trouble few days with JB's car motor change today , last run back in the 6's , 6.68 @ 205 mph.

You will see a R35 built by us soon thou.

I wasn't doubting that you have lots of experience tuning cars etc etc far from it, just that we/I have not seen any R35 builds coming out of Abbey, but its good to hear that you are getting into it and there will be some soon! The more R&D tuners do the better it is for the whole community! I will respond to your PM shortly!
